10:45 pm - memememe thingy
mehmeh I'm bored and you all forgot that I had an LJ

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

5:55 am - Again with the markers!
I had a photo of me being attacked by a rabid polish girl, that I also happen to play vampires with. So here's my marker version of it:

I got markers yesterday, some low-budget korean ones, just to try it out. Here's a couple of sketches:
Once more into the lj-cut, dear friends!Collapse )

1:30 pm - Train trip home, and some thoughts on it:
I should have planned my trip better, got to the station at half past ten but the train didn't leave until half past twelve and I got home at the very inappropriate time of half past four in the morning. I should remember to check the departures and reserve a seat in advance. I was lucky though, caught a non-reserved seat in the rest compartment, which afforded me a little bit of sleep, unlike the poor wretches who had to sit in the corridor all the way across the country.Ah well, my xp spent on trainriding paid off.

Trainstations are fascinating places, I sat in the café at Copenhagen Central Station and watched the ebb and flow of customers based on train arrivals and departures, the unwritten paths and currents of the people walking by outside. How some people waited patiently for hours for the right train to leave, while others raced like mad to reach the same train before it departed. Stations truly show the mutability of time, before the invention of trains, the concept of minutes was a mere tool of astronomers and navigators, but when trains started leaving at 11.04 exactly instead of the coach leaving at eleven'ish, people learned of minutes and their importance.

In a night train, the world outside is void, when you're travelling through the countryside. As you approach the cities, the cold, dirty orange streetlights reveal that the world still exists, but more like a photograph, than a real view.

Outside the trainstation, the taxis waited, like hungry anglerfish, with their bright alluring lights on the roofs. Quietly gobbling up dazed travellers in the deep dark of the night.

10:03 pm - Long time, no write
Well, it's been a while since last I wrote, almost a year by the looks of it. It's time to reevaluate this journal, what should I put here and should I even start writing again?

Looking back at my previous entries, I can see lots of pointless, badly written stories and anecdotes from my daily life. Is this what I want to share with the world? Counting the comments, I highly doubt that is what anyone wants to read and I don't really feel like writing that sort of stuff again. So what could I put here instead? Got any ideas?

7:31 am - I feel geeky
I just made my second html project, a webpage for our test scenario. It's simple html, but I made it and I'm proud:

Look at my pretty page!

Don't mind the weird language and the three broken links, I haven't gotten around to writing those pages yet.

Now I need to sleep, I've been up all night writing and html'ing, I wonder if I can fall asleep, I ate an awful lot of chocolate, plus the bottle of coke and the pot of coffee earlier.

10:28 am - Weather.
It was a warm day, atleast. as the people of this northern land thought, compared to the previous weeks of snow and frost. Spring, it seemed, had struck at Winter early, washing away all the snow in a mere two days of near-torrential rain. Now the land lay uncovered, drinking the rain that still covered the ground in puddles and soaked everything, since the sun had not had a chance to dry it out, as the mighty grey rainclouds still covered the sky from horizon to horizon. The rain kept to the night, quietly falling when noone noticed, leaving a vast reserve of water for the thirst plants that were making preparations for the Spring that seemed to lie just a few weeks ahead.
The northerners enjoyed the warm, wet wind that had replaced the frozen, dry gales of january, they no longer wore the thick coats and wollen mittens, though they kept their raincoats and umbrellas near, since everyone agreed that the rains weren't done with them yet. This was an unusually early start for the warm weather, though it seemed that Winter had lost the fight for february, there was still a tinge of cold lurking behind the grey clouds and naked trees, an insidious notion that Winter would strike back soon, to try and claim a few more days of miserable cold. Here everyone spent a lot of time talking about the weather and explaining their own oppinions on it, regardless of what the wise men of meterology said, there was much debate as to wether the spring would start from here or if this was just a short respite from the winter that still seemed to lurk somewhere behind the scenes....

2:03 am - One down, lots to go... prolly
I've already decided to ditch this town for the holidays, but I'd decided to talk to a few of the people. Now I don't even want to do that anymore.

Morten, my friend from way back at art school has been acting like a complete asshole for several months now...
After the summer vacation he went on a month's stay at a film studio in Copenhagen. All I heard from him was a mass email asking for voluanteers for a charity project. Apparently he worked 16 hours a day, so there was no time for other people, not even an e-mail letting me know he was alive, I had to hear rumours from a mutual friend who was lucky enough to live nearby and talk to him from time to time.
After the stay at the studio he was busy writing a project on his stay, apparantly that took all of his time for several months, if you wanted to talk to him, you'd have to offer something to make him come over or listen on IM. He also declared that from now on he'd only spend time with happy people. This coincided with my annual depressive bout, I was forced to handle that on my own more or less.
After having written the project, he immidiately begun to spend his time arranging a show for the last LOTR premiere and studying for exams. In addition to that, he began to get really whiney, problems with his relationship that have only grown worse over time.

This morning he finally took the last step away from me: I was hungover and busy cleaning and packing for christmas, he was more aggravated at his gf than ever. He began to ask what It would take to get me to postpone my leave. I told him that it would take something truly earthshattering, since I missed my girl. He kept pushing the question without actually telling me what he was offering me and I finally gave him a solid "No!" That made him upset and he whined at me, until I changed it to a maybe in exchange for hearing his offer. It was a ticket to the staff showing of RotK and watching the two extended dvds with him and his gf before that. I told him that I'd have to say no, because I'd rather be with Mette than watching some movie. He got mad at me there and I got mad at him. I know that both our nerves are on the edge, but that was just nasty. Afterwards I realised that this was prolly also because he wanted me to help him out with the gf.
Mwhey, while talking to Nanna later I realized that he wasn't worth the effort and he's now been dumped from best friend status to aqaintance level, atleast for the holidays, hopefully he can regain some trust after that, but that'll have to be on his initiative. I'm going to explain it tomorrow when he's done with his exams.

Bastard.

I'd just managed to set all of my affairs in order, then he forces my hand on this issue. So right now, I don't want anything to do with people outside Zealand. They can do without me and I can do without them, atleast for the holidays.

- Lizzrd out.
(sorry for the whining, had to do it.)

current mood: aggravated

4:24 am - Dream
I just woke from a weird dream: I'll just record it while I still have the memory of it. These things are too precious to waste.
I find myself sitting, looking down through a wooden hatch in the floor. I'm wearing simple medieval clothes and feeling very wild. Two floors below me, is a single sentinel standing on guard. Somehow I know that there is a trap just next to him and I need to trigger it so it will take hime out. I silently drop down to the floor above him and start feeling for the trigger.
I manage to release it without being detected and it takes the watchman out with some sort of explosion it seems.
I climb down and loot him, while he's out. He's wearing a modern uniform, looks alot like my old firefighter uniform.
I hide most of his stuff in a plastic bag, except for a mace. Which I sneak onwards with.
At this point I realize that he was standing watch on a balcony in the lowest floor of a great mansion like structure, built on the wall of a giant vertical cliff, I don't know high up it is.
I stalk around the balcony to an entrance further down. I leads to some sort of baracks where guys in medieval clothes (armour padding and linnen) are sitting eating. I know that these men are traitors to the cause (?) and must be killed, so I start bashing at them. But they manage to subdue me after I knock two or three down.
I then manage to crawl off to a nearby hall, where some noble looking people are eating dinner, they're not opulently dressed, more like low - middle aristocrats on an ordinary day. I drag myself into a corner near the table, oddly enough they do not seem to be scared or shocked at my being there. I wolf down some bacon (cooked in a special danish way) and glare at them.
A young lady then escorts me to the kitchen where we talk, I seem to recall her name as "Sarah" and she has light hair.
Then the dream shifts into a dark, foggy bog between modern office buildings around dusk, where a guy is harvesting some sort of low reeds, I'm watching him from out in the water along with the young lady (or someone else, I never look at them, they feel female). I help him out collecting the weeds before I discover that the water is full of nasty critters, Including an underwater spider monkey (angry!) and giant leeches. I get one under each foot and I crawl onto land to get them off.
This is where I wake up. Completely awake, but very thirsty.
The entire dream was silent, yet I knew what sounds there were. It was in colours, but very subdued ones.

Anybody know what It might mean? It used a lot of old memories mashed together, the first part is very fps-like, while it feels more larpy around the time when I attack the traitors. It felt like I was in control of myself, except i was feral and angry, like I'd reverted to that state from someone who was part of the society there....

5:14 am - Warning for you all.
I'm going to make this short so everyone gets it:

I appear to be heading into a downward spiral mentally. So watch out for me, I might get very spiteful and cynical at a moment's notice. And you snailriders out there, feel free to kick me when I become too much of a bother.

Updates might follow, or they might not. I'm not much into angsty ranting.

I'm going back to battering the hatches down and alerting damage control.
Lizzrd Out.

1:55 am - Stuff (Or: "Just ignore my ranting")
School, my stressy day. I skipped the first three lessons today to catch up on another subject. I managed to get started on the assignment, before i had to go to an exam in calculus. It was a twelve point multiple choice test, one hour long. I should have scored higher, but I think I passed. Amazing how the simple fact that its an exam rather than something less important screws me up so bad.
I remember back in highschool, when I smoked marijuana, I never got nervous. My test scores increased and I could study more easily without the constant angsting about it all. But that was not enough to make up for my loss of artistic ability... That is one thing I'll never jeopardize in that way again.

Anyways, after the exam we had some chemistry lessons, usual boring questions, I handed in last weeks assignment and got a bit happier, then I went with Stine to find the lab teacher to get my reports back, four in total, all four needed some minor fixing, Stine was nice enough to help me with the reports, I tend to be unable to do that kind of work on my own. I handed the assignments back to the teacher and hoped for the best, we'll see tomorrow if Its good.
She really made my day by helping out, the little thing of listening to my ideas for fixing the calculations and comparing it with her own.

I went home and continued the homework. I have to get everything approved by friday, but right now, I think I can handle it. I have everything done roughly, I just need to get a little help with the final report tomorrow after classes, then I just need to get the crap approved and fixed if it isn't.

I hope that by friday I'm home free in two out of three subjects.

bah, I should sleep. I'm still wondering if I should go to the party tomorrow...
I managed not to turn on the TV today, nor play computer, except for some minesweeper while my eggs were cooking. That sure helped me get stuff done.

Oh, and have a quizzz:

<td bgcolor="#000000">Name:</td><td bgcolor="#DDDDAA"></td></tr><td bgcolor="#000000">You will conquer:</td><td bgcolor="#DDDDAA">Antartica (but nobody noticed). France (but nobody noticed).</td></tr><td bgcolor="#000000">Your title will be:</td><td bgcolor="#DDDDAA">Overlord</td></tr><td bgcolor="#000000">You will succeed by:</td><td bgcolor="#DDDDAA">Seizing all copies of the next Lord of the Rings movie, and holding them hostage.</td></tr><td bgcolor="#000000">Your Enforcers will be:</td><td bgcolor="#DDDDAA">Jem Hadar (from Star Trek, Deep Space Nine).</td></tr><td bgcolor="#000000">Your first act as ruler:</td><td bgcolor="#DDDDAA">Create a population boom by offering $1 Million to the familly that produces the most children in the next ten years.</td></tr>

Very odd, I don't want to conquer France! I'd just nuke it from my Antarctic base... neither will I hire any star trek characters, they're all sucky. And the world is populated enough as it is... especially not more French people! Or maybe that applies to the natives of antarctica: Penguins...

Excuse my drunken spelling and ranting:

yet another party with the Tanja...
My day was quite nice, got up early enough to go to the shop for last minute groceries, do laundry and bake a bunch of buns, then Søren's (my flatmate) mom came over, they cooked dinner and I was invited to eat with them, free food is always good! Got to insult Søren at dinner in front of his mom. (He did the same to me, all in good spirits!) and then I went over to Tanja with some of my bakings. she and Rasmus went off to another party, while I talked to Frederik about stuff. I then went home and tried to get my bearings, when i got a message from Tanja and Rasmus, that they'd decided not to go to the party and came over to me instead, I hastily put up a leetle party and there was much rejoicing.
Well, the party was fun enough, but:

Today I learned that she's designating Random Hip Hop Guy as her boyfriend-
She was pissed at him for being too possesive and jealous at me, for having such a good friendship with her.... Can't help it.
The initial chance for romance is gone, I've now officially been called a really good friend, I just hope I can get it on from here.
Of course its her choice, but I'll be damned if I let her slip away...
Oh well, another night well spent in her company can't be completely wasted, though it ended as all the other nights, with me alone, pathetic and unhappy in my bed.

7:37 pm - What a day...
So, I skipped school today, as I always do on tuesdays... Spent most of the day wasting away in front of the computer, procrastinating.
Then an hour or two before sunset, I wandered off to the lake, to get myself woke up.
I enjoyed the warm fall and the scent of dry autumn nature, looking at the joggers and the sharp sun.
I ended up at the drainpipe leading rainwater out into the lake. I lay down on it and looked at the perfect mirror surface of the lake and let myself think.

After the walk I took a shower to wash the leftover laziness away. Then I began cleaning my room out of self-loathing, this was the quiet kind, not the raging heavymetal kind, but the slow, calm, angsty kind.
My room is now sparkly clean, never sheets on the bed, everything sorted and on its shelf.

I want to listen to loud, sad trance music.
I want to breathe smoke.
I want to fade away silently.
I want to be cold.
I want to hug someone.
I want to be balanced.
I want to be anyhere but here.
I want to feel complete.


But that'll all have to wait, first I'm going to go to the shop and then I'll be studying.
After that I might go up to Tanja and explain Fusion to her, if I feel that I've deserved that.

current mood: calm

7:23 am - A night for Hermes
Okay, just to recap: I planned to have a sloppy, geeky, weekend in my bed, alone.
But, alas, so is it not meant to be for me. I appear to have too many friends to be left alone in my chambers.

So, tonight I was invited to a host of different parties: First off was an afternoon of quiet geeky fun at Sofus' b-day party. I woke up to banging on the door, It was Tanja inviting me to a party later that evening. When I finally got out of bed and decided to head off to Sofus' place, I found my bike had been punctured on the rear tire... I finished fixing it, but too late for the b-day party, so I just decided to go to ther party at Tanja's place instead. I went in my vampire larp costume, since I also planned to go to a vampire party later. I dressed rather synthy, but not too bad. When I got to Tanja's flat it was just four people desperately trying to invent a card game to make the party more lively. Hung around for the party a while, playing their weird game (It involved garden gnomes, childrens rhymes and borrowing a cup of sugar!) It was good fun, I think I brainwaved pretty well with Tanja, we had a couple of personal jokes and whatnot. Around midnight we gathered up the peoples and headed down town. Tanja's flatmate Rasmus lead us to a gay bar (Pan) which was fine with me, since I only wanted to dance. When we were sitting at the table with our drinks, It was pretty clear who was straight and who was gay, I don't know where i fitted in, but I had a rather nice chat with Rasmus and a bisexual girl about the hot guys at the bar... we all agreed that most of the men were too pathetic and not worth much... hehe.
anyways, went on to dance with Rasmus, Carina (the bi girl) and Tanja to eighties songs (the best for dancing!) and freaking the heteros. :D
I had had a bit to drink, so I ended up giving and recieving a body tequila with Rasmus, much fun.
After that another of Tanja and Rasmus' flatmates, Sandra, showed up. I think she was turned on by my being a firefighter... I got two body tequilas off her..
We ended up at a random flat to a morning party that turned out to be rather dull, so we took a minicab home...
I hope to get a bit further with Tanja, she's a nice girl and I like her, but tonight she went home with "random hip hop guy."
I feel above that, I never saw the point in getting drunk to pick up girls. Its so fake, presenting yourself when you're changed with drugs (alcohol is still a drug, no matter the cultural acceptance.) So I'm biding my time and being myself, only getting drunk to amuse myself and feel like dancing.
Tanja will be mine! Unless we get to be friends first, which'll ruin everything... I chose to pursue her as a love interest, if I fail, I'll still be gaining a friend.

current mood: drunk
