yeah for bandwaggon jumping!
[profile] wildfae started it. :)

Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
• NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
• They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
• You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

10 pictures (one of which might be a little disturbing. you have been warned. :) ).
it was surprisingly hard to pic just 10.
and i actually should totally be going to bed rather then posting.

up till now, two good things have happend to me today. it's a little sad, that these things are just movie trialers and not for instance two bags of money or two loves of my life. but anyway. i'm not picky.

i can very much relate to that...

and this here looks promising (and quite sexy). although, i fear it's these kind of movies which only have the ability to be either fantastic or downright awful. well, until nothing is proven, in favour for the suspect.

(and i swear it's a absolut unintended coincidence, that both of them are staring robert pattinson. who could have guessed he makes interesting movies?!)

gonna, finally, get my hair cut now.
hopefully that will be the third good thing happening to me today. :)

thank god, it's saturday.
got to go to the lab tomorrow, but today is free. yippie! :D
hopefully i'll gonna get my hair cut. also, i will go outside to hang out in the sun. it looks like today gonna provide some good weather. and in two weeks, i'm already off for my holidays! double yippie! to imagine i gonna be in new zealand for a month feels a little surreal right now. surreal in a very positive way that is. :D

i'm watching all the old "star trek - next generation" episodes again. although i really loved the recent ST movie, tv series wise, i always favoured picard over kirk. no doubt. however, in one episode, the little science nerd in me, was a little confused.
usually, when it comes to science, they try not to give some far fetched explaination for things, but try to stick relatively much to known facts. i mean, of course concerning starship technology or something like that they can say whatever they want, but i mean things which are known or researched about right now, in our time. for example, DNA is still DNA in the ST universe. they just tried to think in how far the knowledge might have been expanded and add some details, but the basics are usually untouched. not in the case, which confused me so much. in this scene data stated that human memory is preserved in the human DNA. and that is pretty far fetched, which i found was unusual for ST-TNG. that episode was from the early 90's and i'm wondering now if maybe there was a similar theory about the human memory at that time. it would be pretty weird though. and didn't last exactly long.
well, yeah. that much about star trek.

but talking about science, talking about work. i'm sort of TAing atm. i'm a tutor in a seminar series and it's quite fun, i have to say. our boss picked some nice topics for the students presentations and it's really fun to discuss them.
i never in my life want to become a teacher, but to do some TAing stuff is cool. i hope my boss lets me do some more of that in the future.

so, enough about blabla from me now. gonna get my hair cut now. :)
have a great saturday you all!

oh...i almost forgot. i have a invite code for dreamwidth left over. anyone interested in it?

i haven't figured out how the dreamwidth version of LJ-cut works and i can't be bothered right now (2.15 a.m.) trying to find it out. but i'll try to keep the star trek spoilers to a minimum. if you want to watch this movie maximum un-spoiled, just stop from here.

according to wikipedia, the writing artform of "slash" first developed in the star trek fandom, in lack of decent female charakters to pair either kirk or spock with. and i'm pretty sure mr. j.j. abrahmas knew that, when he planned this movie out. at least my evil little slash-loving heart was quite satisfied. you can easily pair everyone with everyone!* mass orgy! free love! muahahahahaa! thank you mr. abrahmas!
*and i bet you everything that some twisted slashy mind will pair spock/spock sooner or later.

well, beside my obvious interest, the rest of the movie was pretty good too. i'm no star trek fan and the only expectation i had was to be well entertained and i was. our die-hard star trek nerd complained that it was too funny every now and then, but i quite enjoyed the jokes and slapsticks. the villian was somewhat weak and the plot had some flaws, but oh well, so what. but they did a great job on casting the actors. they fit perfectly.

so, if you're looking for some light entertainment and some sizzling-yet-to-be-writen-slash, go watch star trek. :)
