Two Memes

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] liaku and [livejournal.com profile] ender839! :D

[livejournal.com profile] beatonna drew the Plantagenets! (from The Lion in Winter) Hee, I love her interpretation, especially Becket's expression and Eleanor's glare.

Meme one, unwillingly tagged by [livejournal.com profile] thedls_sword.
1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 fictional characters.
2) Post this meme with your answers.
3) Provide pictures and the names of 3 people.
4) Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.


I got Jaime Lannister, Sandor Clegane and Littlefinger )

Meme two, tagged by [livejournal.com profile] hamsterwoman
1. Reply to this post, saying "pick me" or similar, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.



Back when I had to choose icons for my LJ I was in a real viola-mood. In case you didn't know, the viola is the most beautiful instrument evar and I play it (obviously). I just like the icon, it's very snappy and rather indicative of the attitude violists have ("Don't ignooore us!"). And I like the fact that the C clef is in the icon as well.

The other four icons )

Also, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] badalice on the westerosorting chat, I have now discovered fmylife.com. I've been laughing ever since. Oh the Schadenfreude.

IT'S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS!

Oy, months too late, but look at this cool Stark children fanart by [livejournal.com profile] glockgal. Look at them, they are all so adorable! (The same post also has a drawing of Tyrion and a really funny cartoon version of Merlin. It truly fits the cracky and cute tone of the show.)

And here's another asoiaf fanart site that I just had to show for the hilarity factor (found thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sansaxsandor). I mean, what to say? The guy has talent, but what's with the torn doll at Sansa's feet? Or the one drawing where Sansa wears practically nothing and is holding a severed head (Littlefinger's head, probably.) with Lady's skeleton floating next to her. And then there are the Jon Snow drawings. I was boggling at the overdone armour Jon and Ghost are wearing until I noticed the title: "A Dream of Spring: Jon Snow - The Others King". After that I just LOLed. Also, the 30-year-old Jon strikes again. Just look at how buff he is! XD (ETA: [livejournal.com profile] pojypojy is probably on to something, it could be a World of Warcraft parody/tribute.)

And now something about doctors. I've only been in med school for less than a year, yet it's obvious to me what an impact the tv show House MD made on doctors. My ethics teacher showed snippets to show what moral dilemmas doctors can face. This I can deal with. What I can't deal with are doctors who are emulating House. No seriously, House is a douche. Don't treat your patients like a douche would (or talk about them like that). Last week we had a small work lecture and the hepatologist was making snappy and sarcastic remarks whenever a student answered a question. This already set off my alarm bells and then he suddenly said: "Everyone lies!" And mentioned House twice. And started talking about how all gallstone patients had the FFF (Female, Forty and Fat) and how they tended to blubber and wobble. We all laughed because he did bring it in a funny way but you could tell that a lot of people (including me) felt a bit uncomfortable. :|

Also, props to South Park for making Kanye West realise he has a huge ego. God I love this dude: "I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I'M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I'M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE."
Anyway, this is just an excuse to post the old fandom_wank entry where Kanye shows his batshit. AT THAT POINT WE'RE RACING AGAINST THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hell yeah!

Okay, so [livejournal.com profile] guad and her easter egg contest on [livejournal.com profile] westerosorting have driven me mad. Finding the eggs? 15 minutes. Solving them? Done, in a pretty short time. EXCEPT for one teeny tiny scrambled word. Ah well, guess I'm not the asoiaf nerd I though myself to be.

Anyway

YES, YES, MFing YES! Guess who got her three day apprenticeship with an eye medic on time? ME, HELL YEAH! I can also have a look in the surgeon room when he's operating. I actually believe my mother is more relieved about me succeeding than I am. XD

Anyway, those asoiaf quizzes. Well, I've done them both (and one was definitely better spelled than the other) and the results?

Tully and Tyrell )

Meme: Elemental Beauty )

Also, have been watching Kings, because I was curious to see what they would do with story of Saul and David (+ Jonathan).
Kings is a television drama series airing on NBC and Citytv, based on the Biblical story of King David in a kingdom that culturally and technologically resembles the present-day United States.


Spoilery thoughts )

Booooks...

Okay, so you will not have heard of this news tidbit, what with them only being important in the Benelux, but I have to talk about it.
There's a lot of talk about a batshit crazy neurologist here (okay, that's in Dutch, but so you know I'm not making this up). I know that not every med student becomes a great or even normal doctor, but this is just plain creepy. Basically, this man was a medicin addict and he told hundreds of his patients that they were incurably ill. He told people they had things like Alzheimer, and he proscribed them the wrong medicins on purpose. He's being accused of causing the deaths of two patients. One of the victims described how the neurologist treated him, it was awful. He basically gave him a lumbar puncture but he kept missing on purpose and he continued to puncture him, fifteen times in total (Also, this guy wasn't even qualified to do lumbar punctures. WTF). Stories about him keep popping up and Christ, O_o. Is he a sadist or something? I just cannot understand this man and it makes me uncomfortable to know that people like him get close to patients. Eurgh.

On a more cheerful note, we had the annual book festival here )

And I have a new lj layout, inspired by Romeo and Juliet :D The artist who did the art I used in the header is Valentin Melik His art is brilliant, especially the murals. The total Romeo and Juliet mural is so long and the colours are so well chosen. I love how he based it on the 1968 movie :D. And his other artworks, like portraits, are pretty amazing too.

Also, 8 icons...

Dude, more icons

Day... 4, I think, in things that make me happy: I don't know, I like Chronicles of Amber, I've been enjoying that today. Also, a few days ago we had to pick up some stuff at the church where my orchestra practises. And we were treated to a private organ concert (church lady was practicing). She's really good and organ music is very awesome. :D

So yeah, here are some more iconsssss (36). Preview!




dude, this post has everything, from 3 different cerseis to melisandre to joffrey to, well, a lot )

babble

1. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this everyday for 8 days without fail.
3. Tag 8 of your friends to do the same.


Okay, because it's [livejournal.com profile] thedls_sword, I'll give it a try.

What makes me happy. Well, for all you Terry Prachett fans, you'll probably agree, that Moist-book art is pretty darn awesome and happy-inducing. (It's Moist! And Vetinari! Adora! *squee*)

Also! My orchestra had the annual Christmas concert! We thought we were going to suck but we did a smashing job! We did Cesar Franck's Symphony in D minor (links to youtube in this post) and the ever so traditional A Christmas Festival (no youtube link because they all suck).

I meant to post some rambling thoughts on racism here in the Netherlands, but I'm just a bit too happy, so perhaps tomorrow!

Also 2! The [livejournal.com profile] westerosorting superlative awards.
Yes, I feel like talking about all the nominations I got, but I'll spare you with this cut )

Moar icons

Okay, so you know when your relatives visit and then suddenly your parents suggest that you play something on your instrument, even though they know you hate doing that for visitors? Basically what happened to me. D:

I have my first medicins exam tomorrow... I'm a bit nervous to be honest, until now uni has been completely different from secondary school. I don't like how they don't really make clear what you should know. And my nervousness is pretty much made worse thanks to the constant newsstream about the recession. :(

But yeah, here's some icons.

LOL Belgium

So, you probably don't know this but there's a lot of shit going down in the Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg). Basically the Belgians are all very angry about the fact that the Dutch government bought up all the Dutch Fortis assets to get Fortis out of trouble (Fortis is Belgium's pride bank, it got into a lot of trouble because they overdid themselves buying the biggest Dutch bank. And now there's all this with the recession.). All the Dutchies are gleeful. So this has pretty much developed into Dutch-Belgian pissing contest number 134252. And I know this is facetious but I can't help but LOL. You should see some of the headlines ("Great Belgian Bank Dead!" "The Dutch cheekily take over Fortis!")
Oh Belgium, I think there are some other things you should worry about (Seriously, almost two years and still no coalition? Geez). Me and my dad have a bet about how long it'll take till it splits into Flanders and Wallonia. Let me tell you, we're not optimistic.

Sansa actress (and me being weepy/excited/weirded out/cheerful)

I went to "de Brief voor de Koning" (The Letter for the King), a Dutch movie about a boy who has to bring a letter to, you guessed it, the king. It was a nice movie. But I'm only mentioning this for Hanna Schwamborn, the perfect Sansa! She's even wearing blue :D

Isn't she pretty?

ALSO. WATCHMEN. I'M SO EXCITED! I love the comic so I hope mister Zach "300" Snyder redeems himself by making a good Watchmen movie.

I'm starting to think that I'm a lot more weepy than I used to be. I saw a program with seven year old Chinese farmer kids who only get to see their parents once a year (the parents have to work in the city). They had to say what they want most in the world and all they want is to be scientists so they can make money for their parents and be with them. And then they all started crying. And so did I. :(  And then it got worse, because the poor old grandfather who also stays behind started crying too! I'm seriously starting to hate all the hate against Chinese. I mean, it's only a select few who can enjoy a rich live buying up Western stocks. Mostly the Chinese are poor and exploited.

Also, I was working on the Cash register in the departmentstore and then a customer comes to buy a shirt. I'm like "Hello, how do you do" etc. And then I stare. Because he's one of those Elder Mormons. Mormons! I should know better but I really didn't expect them here. I think he caught me staring at him as if I saw pigs fly.

Lessee if this icon table generator works... 38 icons )

Furthermore, the weather continues to be freaking awful. Non-stop rain for days. No wonder they call this a frogcountry. :(

Meme! Plus some funny things from GRRM's Dreamsongs and asoiaf

So, my first meme (from [personal profile] misstopia)
 
Also, I’m halfway through GRRM’s Dreamsongs. OMG, love love love.
