I thought it fit quite a bit ^^. LJ only, by the way.

I'm doing this on the supposition (to be proved) that I'll have seen a whole lot of old stuff - if I can recognise the English names, as most of this I would have seen when German TV only had three channels, at a time where we watched movies all the way through even if we didn't like them - as a family... hmm well, mostly with my Dad ^^. Mom reading or knitting something, my brother doing whatever.

huge list of movies )
Yes, I definitely can see two periods - films seen with my parents on the tv and then in the late 80s to the late 90s movies I actually watched in the cinema. I haven't gone in years - my tastes have changed and if I wanted to watch an English language movie I'd get a DVD these days, not go to the cinema where I get a German translation. But mostly when I watch something I watch anime, heh.

Also: I visited my mum yesterday, she's doing quite well and showed me her scar (which looks really good to me, but she does say that it's a total change not having the weight of her breast there - she really needs to do training to carry the weight equally and not get a krick in her neck).

If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Okay, I don't think all that many people expect a post from this LJ so I don't even know if I'll get any results, but I am curious (I found it interesting that there were anon/anonymous posters on the windows of the two mentioned LJ friends ^^)

Please tell me how I come across on the internet ^^

Not being a paid account I can't make a poll - not that many people read me anyway, heh, but I am quite proud to have read quite a lot of books and short stories this year, even though I have troubles with my right cornea. I loved it when meganbmoore did it last year, so this year I wanted to do it for myself (and see if I read much less... looking at the list I can't think I did, actually). Manga/manhwa are not included.

The overwhelming majority of these were new reads and ebooks. We have fantasy, science fiction, non-fiction, romance of various versions, erotic romances of the straight and m/m variety as well as menage.The books are listed according to grade, from best to worst (A+,A- to D and DNF):

Okay, most people won't recognise her of course, because most of my readers haven't met me on Dark Ages, but this is Estara Swanberg in her long-time favourite outfit, the Rucesion Elle (as can be seen here in the upper left corner). She should be smaller but they only have one female body type on offer. Heh ^^. Creation software link courtesy of telophase.

Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

"Es ist an der Zeit für mich, die Flügel weiterzureichen, auf dass Coll sie entgegennehme."

:P, that's what comes from saying it's supposed to be the nearest book. These three German scifi books will go into the students' library at the next convenient moment. So far there ought to be ONE of the people who friend me who can actually read this.


Oh right, it's by George R. Martin and Lisa Tuttle - Sturm über Windhaven, the German translation of course.
