sivaroobini: (Dream)

I'm tired and just want to watch Justice League or something, but I've already put off posting about the outing with [livejournal.com profile] sunflower_mynah  aka Mysti on the 18th for a few days. XD Admittedly, I've had work.

On the 18th of May, for some youth animation festival thingy, they were showing Coraline in 3D, and there'd also be Making-Of scenes and talks by people who'd worked on it. I found out when they were selling tickets during the World Free Comic Book Day celebrations at work, called Mysti, invited her along, and bought two tickets.
Summary with photos! )


On to questions 11 to 15 of the book meme!

11. Do you own multiple copies of any book? What are they? Why do you have multiple copies? )

12. Book borrowing – do you use the library? Do you prefer to try before you buy? What about lending your books to friends? Are you a good borrower, do you remember to return books?  )


13. Do you reread a lot? Why (not)? Name a book you have reread many times. )


14. What is the best book you’ve read in the past year?  )


15.Do you recommend books to other people? If you could force everyone you know to read one book, what would it be?  )


See, this is why I cannot do all 30 questions at one go like [livejournal.com profile] sunflower_mynah  did; it'd be novel-length. XD I do have to work the early shift tomorrow though, it's now 12.20AM and I need to wake up by 6.40AM, so I need to post this and sleep!
sivaroobini: (Crowley inner turmoil)

Aargh. My A Levels were finished at the end of last November and I have a break until university starts much later this year. I'd been looking forward to this period SO MUCH last year, and planning what I'd do kept me going.

Now the months stretch ahead of me and I have so many things to do but just can't bring myself to finish them. Would the word ennui be appropriate? There are times when I just walk around the house, unable to motivate myself to finish any of my current projects or start a new one. None of them seem to appeal to me; sometimes they do but I don't feel like doing them anyway. When I'm on the computer, instead of writing or doing anything productive, I spend hours faffing about on Facebook or reading (in some cases, rereading) fanfiction.

Maybe a list will help. Things that are in progress will be italicised, things I've completed will be struck off.

*stares at list* This is going to end up like that post-O Level list of mine, isn't it? Lakshmi and I wrote up a nice long list and we only did a few things on it. Sigh.

So I've decided that whenever possible from now on I'm uploading a picture, with some relevance to whatever I think I'm going to talk about, before the actual wall of text post. I have so many cute or funny pictures and I might as well share them. ;)


I just want to bury myself like that fox and hibernate right now. @_@ There's this strange sort of lethargy or sluggishness in my bones.

Last night I was trying to catalogue some of my books at my LibraryThing account and now I just want to curl up with snacks and a hot drink and reread most of them, starting with Neil Gaiman's Odd and the Frost Giants. It may be just a really thin kids' book, but the storyline is awwww-worthy and the characters and the use of Norse myths are amazing and if I had kids I would so read it to them. That also goes for Sheila Banfield's Leif the Lucky. According to LibraryThing, only one other person on that website besides me owns it. Which is sad because for a simple-looking thin little kids' book, it combines an engaging plot and historical characters with lovely details of Viking history and art and culture and everday life, and shows how Christianity is just beginning to make itself felt alongside the old worship of Odin and Thor and so on. These books, to me, are amazing children's books, and I don't get how stuff like Captain Underpants is more popular. Sigh.

cut for ramblings about crystals, religion and cleaning )

Help wanted! Help me clean my room and move stuff, and I will cook for you and give you something from Dubai or Egypt. Even if it's just sand from Giza or Saqqara in a tiny bottle. :D
