Hehe, the battle between TrollDad and TrollSon is going to be fun... I recently read an article about a study that found out we're more likely to forget things when we walk through a door. Like, I want to get some tea, get up, walk into the kitchen and think "why did I come here again?". Seems doors act like "event boundaries" in your mind. *g* http://www.freakonomics.com/2011/11/23/does-walking-through-doorways-cause-forgetfulness/

Very nice giveaway. I think it's so much easier to be happy in life, if you're able to be inspired by the small things. The last thing that really inspired me was the Colette Valentine video (the beautiful pictures! the French song!) but any odd thing can inspire me. Books, music, videos, pictures, blogs the weather, sunlight through the leaves, a new yummy type of tea, a mood, a talk with a good friend... Alessa ♥ http://farben-freude.blogspot.com

Thanks for all your wonderful tutorials! I've only gotten back home from my 3-and-a-half month long trip around the world on Sunday and am still adjusting to being back home, but I'm going to start on my pants next week! Alessa <3 http://farben-freude.blogspot.com

Awesome! I've been planning to go to FedCon this year, and your appearance cements it. My first con, yeah! Now, how to incorporate the Atomic Dice T-shirt in my yet to be sewn awesome Star Trek Skant uniform... :D

Oh I'm sooo jealous, I really really want to come! You "and* a TNG reunion *and* Felicia Day! Sadly, hopping across the pond from Berlin, Germany isn't really in my student budget. But hey, why don't you come to FedCon 2011 in Bonn? Pretty please? With strawberries on top? ;-)

Having installed two Kubuntus and two WinXPs on different machines in the past four weeks (no macs for poor student me), I'm happy to report that Linux does indeed just work (I even had to use a Linux live CD to download network drivers for the Windows...) Oh, and: awesome photo. Awesome BBT-episodes, too. And I've been meaning to comment that I'm patiently (or not so patiently) waiting for the next installment of Radio Free Burrito - I'm an avid listener. :)

Yay! It's going to be awesome! Did I tell you that you were one of the two people who made me say "awesome" practically any time I speak or write English...? Must be that +5...

Umm, outing myself as a fanfic nerd: I'm pretty sure that by slash fic you mean there's sex going on but actually the term ist only used for homosexual pairings, even if there's no sex in there(although that would mostly be termed light slash)... Two women in a relationship is called femme slash (or femslash) and if there's actually the nasty going on, you'd call it a smut fic - or PWP (porn without plot).

Hehe, it got cold and windy just in time for Hallowe'en yesterday (before that it was kind of cool and wet. eugh.) and I bought a butternut squash and two hokkaido pumpkins. They're going to be turned into soup, cupcakes and the most delicious hokkaido risotto. Yum.

Awesome! My Memories of the Future (all three books) just arrived! Just in time for my friend's birthday this week, and just in time so I'll be able to read it before uni today...
