I am such a twit!

So... there is this girl on tumblr who is very nice and she wanted a Die Ärzte fic so I told her I wanted to write her one but I couldn't because I don't know enough German. Then I figured "Eh, what the heck, I'll write a very short one in German and put it in her submit box."

Then I looked at her tumblr today and she's on vacation for a week so I don't know what the hell to do with this thing.

I had my friend advise me and fix up the grammar and everything though, so I'm going to put it on tumblr anyway because I'll start climbing the walls if I have to sit on it for a week. And, well, I'm also going to put it here, because I can. It is Real People Slash but considering the band is famous for constant jokes about how they are all sexing each other up all the time I really don't feel too bad about that.

So, um, anyway, 193 words, nothing at all explicit, in German but I guess I could arrange an English verson if someone really wanted (though I realize that's unlikely). Pairing is Rodrigo González/Farin Urlaub (sorry Bela), only of course I made it all up and it obviously never happened and so forth. All mistakes, grammatical or otherwise, totally mine.

The introduction is longer than the ficlet...Collapse )

(For some reason, writing this really cheered me up. I have no idea why.)

My Library Haul

Just me again...

I am a bit scared...

I have a letter waiting for me at the post office from the mortgage company which may mean they are foreclosing. I don't have anywhere to go and I'm not sure what I'll do if they are.

More on my financial woes...Collapse )

Sometimes I watch movies...

So I checked this German movie out from the library called "The State I Am In" (Die Innere Sicherheit, which actually means something more like "The Inner Certainty.") I was intrigued by the premise because it seemed like a darker, German version of "Running on Empty," a film I saw in the 1980s with Judd Hirsch and River Phoenix. And that's pretty much what it was, so I thought I'd compare them a little bit. (Keeping in mind that the last time I saw Running on Empty was a long time ago.)

Both films are about... [MAJOR SPOILERS] and also this is really long.Collapse )

I fail at life.

I felt up the other day, but even if I do succeed at the second job I don't think they're going to be able to give me enough shifts to give me enough money to support myself, especially after my main job switches their scheduling. (Which will give me some extra money but not a lot.) If I hadn't failed in the other house it would be different but as it is...

Also I screwed up my bike trying to put air in the tires and I'm going to have to walk it up to the bike shop and admit I'm too stupid to put air in the tires and I really don't want to. But I have to. I feel like just sitting here and crying instead.

Another post from me:

So, I had pretty much a good day, counting the last twenty-four hours as a day. (I haven't been asleep yet. I'm going to sleep soon.)

Library Haul!

How things are going...

This is how they are going...Collapse )

I used to know that no matter what happened my dad would be there to help. Now he's gone and I just don't know.

I'm sorry I keep making these long posts about how my life is. I just feel better when I let it out, like I have someone to talk to about all this.


Passover cooking...

In the end I didn't go to the brunch. But that was (mostly) not cowardice on my part -- I looked up the restaurant, which I should have done before, and found out it was a very meat and egg-intensive buffet so I wasn't sure what I'd be able to eat. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

But I was also able to stay up late and make sure my Passover cooking was finished.

Pictures under the cut.Collapse )
