Guess what, we really liked our day off at the dutch beach in Scheveningen:
That's been ages! Yes, you're quite right. I've been extremely lazy... but there's some news that just had to go on this page:
Our birds have found a new home, as they were a bit too much for our little place. As we are now completely without pets, it's absolutely no surprise that after my parents called and told me that they found a little abandoned cat (well, to be honest, he found them) I was over at their place like a shot and spent ages cuddling and spoiling the little guy - not forgetting my older cats, Pinkas and Mücke, who I left with my parents when I moved into Düsseldorf. The older ones can't quite agree on whether they like the little one or not;
|Pinkas just hisses at the little black intruder and then runs away - yes, Pinkas is the one that runs... he's going to take a bit longer to get used to the new situation.|
|Mücke however finds the strange black furball quite interesting, provided he doesn't try to jump onto her and play, but she doesn't mind sharing my mom's lap with him!|
I'm back!!!!!!!!!! Had to take a break and there are some news now - unfortunately all our ratties are gone (sniff), but now we have two cute parakeets, Kiwi and Leeloo (I'll have to look up their exact species name, but they're kind of green, sound like little goats (when they're excited), ducks (when Kiwi is calling for Leeloo) and behave like chicken (they REALLY like to dig in flowerpots and food bowls...) and much fun to watch... I'll put pics on the site as soon as I've got a new scanner, the old one gave up a while ago...
Guess what, I've just received my first delivery from an online-supermarket... seems a bit strange, having somebody else lug up 4 flights of stairs with my shopping. As you can see, I've never had ANY "normal" shopping delivered - but I could get used to it if I really try ;-)
Well, it's been a while - but there were reasons... ... my car needed some repairs (just when I had NO idea what to do with my money - life is like that) - and unfortunately the rat-count in our house is down by one, as we lost our smallest rattie to an ear infection followed by a very bad cold. So we have said goodbye to Struppi, and now with only two of the little people left we're thinking about the problem of "do we want to get new ratties?" as apparently it's not such a good idea to wait until only one is left because she might be a bit stressed out if she's up against a few youngsters by herself. To be honest, I'm not quite convinced about getting little 'uns, as I've seen so much of our (very good) vet lately and I keep worrying about our Kiba (the beige one who unfortunately has a kind of tumor that can't be taken out)...
Enough whining, just to let you know I'm back on the track and will be putting some more time into this site again! Keep your fingers crossed that I can make sense of some new proggies I found!
and while I'm at it - here's some photos of Timothy Dalton
As it's nearly halloween I just remembered I wanted to show you something:
and because I've been lazy about answering a fellow fan's mail, I've finally scanned my photos of Michael Ironside!
More about me - now, what do I like?
Movies - I like Science Fiction (Star Trek is a favourite of mine, back in the 80s I also enjoyed Battlestar Galactica, V, Buck Rogers - will you PLEASE stop laughing???)
Reading - although I'll never understand why I have to go and buy the latest Stephen King novel - I always feel pretty bad when I've finished it. By the way, if you can get your hands on it, read Dean Koontz's latest "False Memory" - brilliant!
And once I get really interested in a topic, I get a bit compulsive about collecting... last year it was Beanie Babies, and lately I've given into my urge to buy Video tapes through Amazon Auctions - pretty much the only way to get at films starring Michael Ironside who is one of my favourite actors. I'm also in a mailing list with lots of other Ironside fans - a bit strange, I don't think I've ever heard anyone under 30 say they like him - or is it just that all of us wimmin' saw him as Ham Tyler and got addicted then and there??
I like writing, but it's been a while since I've seriously done anything. So far you'll also find one bit of fan fiction on Battlestar Galactica on my pages, but unfortunately I can't translate all that - it's killing me getting my old typewriter pages scanned in and explaining to word what it's supposed to read...
Old news, you've seen an up-to-date photo of me on my index page...
I'm 34, live in Duesseldorf, Germany, and I have quite a few interests:
My pet rats
Animals in general (so far I've lived with cats, a dog, a pony, goldfish, a hamster, the notorious "sea monkeys", chicken (can't remember the plural now...), geese, rabbits - not all at the same time though... and by now you might have guessed that I haven't always lived in a city like Duesseldorf
