I am home... and I keep trying to type qwerty instead of azerty. Rarrr.

Anyway, home after a rather uneventful flight back. I came home, tried to watch some telly and promptly fell asleep for half an hour after which I felt just sick so I ended up sleeping through most of the day. Then had new year's dinner with my aunt, uncle and niece.

Colorado was pretty. Boulder is lovely. Getting there is a completely different story. )

On to Colorado )

Basically, it was just a great, but short, trip. It was great seeing my sister again and seeing where she lives. The Rockies are gorgeous and impressive. The weather was actually nice when we left. The wind was horrible for a day and the first two days was colder, but then it was just mild and warmer than it is here. I didn't really want to leave. Either New England is very different from the rest of the US or maybe Boulder is, but I seem to be enjoying the US more after each trip. There's a certain type of mentality that we could use over here.

It feels like a long time ago that I was just behind the computer. Not that Saturday is all that far away, so I'll blame it on my mind.

Sunday there was a family barbecue. The sister in the US is in Europe for a few weeks. I say Europe as she just took a plane to Italy. But yes, it'd been a while since we were all together so there was family time. Then yesterday I had lunch with said sister in Brussels (mmmm pancakes) and in the evening I went to The Dark Knight with the other sister.

While I'm on the topic, this Batman movie is heaps better than the previous one. But then I am the only person alive who didn't like the previous one much. Anyway, it was good. Despite the moment half way through where you're all "It's done now? Can we leave?" and then the movie picks up again.

So yes, I've been busy. Which works just fine with the whole theme at work where I'm busy busy busy too. Whether this will prove to be a good or a bad thing, we shall so. The headache I'm having right now is definitely bad, however.

Oh. Random question to the comic people as somehow this came up one the drive back from the cinema: Does Batman have a serious love interest? (I'm talking Superman and Lois Lane serious.) I could wiki, but I'm lazy.

I actually feel like I slept today. Went to bed an hour early and lay awake for a while, but I managed to sleep in which did me good. I was up early yesterday to do radio with [livejournal.com profile] anomilygrace. It was a whole lot of fun to do, but I'm glad I don't have to do this every week. *is in awe of radio people* It also helped distract me from the dream where I had chest hair. Pretty coarse chest hair too and strangely enough not curled. Dude, was I glad that was a dream because it would have been hell to wax.

Rambling, feel free to skip )

*eyes computer* Stop crashing!

This weekend was spend playing a 7 year old Cameron as the entire student population turned wee for the weekend. I had entirely too much fun with this. Cameron ended up fighting with Anakin, he played tag with principal Zoe Washburn and hugged her, he became Luke Danes' biggest fanboy and talked to Lorelai Gilmore about her baby and even felt her stomach and then he got pretend married to Molly Hayes. It took a while to get my head out of the wee!world and get to write teenage!Cam again yesterday which ended with Molly kissing him. Tex did not turn wee, but she did help out a wee!Veronica Mars to wash her hands and threw a wee!Kawalsky into the duck pond. Yay.

Wrote up an application letter for a job that I would really love to get, but I think I might be too late replying. Damnit.

I am not racist. I will never in my frelling life vote extreme right EVER and yet, yesterday was pushing it too far. Please tell me why we allow illegal immigrants to demonstrate for papers and benefits. Why? These people are here illegal, if they want rights they should go through the correct channel to get them. Our system owes them nothing. I'm all for sympathising with people who had a rough time. We're close friends with a family who lived through the genocide in Ruanda and have helped them in any way we could. This? No fucking way. You do not get to demonstrate when you're here illegally. And this right after two illegal immigrants killed that 16 year old kid for an mp3 players. Extreme right are going to have a ball next elections.

ETA: Oh and I went to see V for Vendetta. It was okay and now I got Overture 1812 stuck in my head. It's weird that Youri and I both liked it and my sis hated it, pretty much just like what happened with Sin City. I think my sis doesn't like movies based on comics.
