Connichi 2013

Finally I find some minutes to put my thoughts about the Connichi 2013 (Kassel, Germany) down. Took a while, huh?

Well~ the train ride was not as exciting as people think… so Deutsche Bahn managed to drive out a 15 minute delay – as usual.
I wonder what for people pay that horrendous money for tickets. Anyways… the hotel was awesome. 4*, perfect nice room and some presents *_*

The weather for the con itself was a bit rubbish… windy, rain, sun, rain, sun…bleh.
Friday I met a few friends (most of them coincidentally), brought my bring and buy stuff away and wandered around the con. Nothing much to say. In the evening I enjoyed relaxing in the bath tube. As I do not have one at home, yay.

Saturday I wore my cosplay: Legretta the Quick / Regret (Tales of the Abyss) – pictures will follow later.
My hair was made by 2 friends of mine at the convention, that was quite fun 😀 Standing near the stairs to the garden and fumbling with my hair. Haha.
So… the weather condition was meh. It was horrible mud, my shoes were looking like I wandered through some deep sh**.
My shoes were the reason I went back to the hotel in the end. They killed me after wearing the cosplay for 6 hours… as I did not sit down somewhere (just walking/standing) my feet were hurting like hell, when I took them off they were swollen 😦 Not nice feeling at all. So the bath tube helped me relaxing. In the end I stayed some hours with friends in their hotel room talking about random stuff and eating pizza. Man, what did I wait to eat a good German pizza!

Sunday was our leaving day… I made my final round, had my first bubble tea ever and left the convention at 2pm. The train ride was okay until they managed to delay the whole thing again… In the end I was home at 10:45pm – in total 1hour and 15 minutes later than planned 😦 stupid Deutsche Bahn and their rail problems.

And I felt like rubbish the day after I got back… seriously. Am I getting too old for conventions?
Besides that I had a lot of fun~ 🙂 (although it might not sound like it from this short summary.

Meeting Neighbors In Unexpected Places (Or Websites)

What is the chance of meeting a neighbor on DeviantART through coincidence and just because of 2 pictures? Appearantly… really great – found my next door neighbor (never met personally) on DA because of these 2 pictures…

Mine and his picture – taken on same day, just with a difference of a few minutes and balconies (and cameras) rofl~

Sometimes I Wish I Could Kill With Eye Contact

… sometimes at work.

There is this one annoying colleague. Told him to leave me alone in June… since then he is trying by any means to get my attention, even goes that far that he tells other people I am ignoring him (which is true but why the hell is this interesting for anyone else?!) or asking them why I am not talking to him.

So after 2 months of trying to ignore that kind of kindergarden I sent him a mail to stop pretending we are friends, because we are not and I will not react on any of his “Hello~~~ how are you today, beautiful?!”-etc-bullshit.
He answered that I should not behave like this because he never did anything wrong… and that I am the one being mistaken here.

Wow, what an ego someone must have to actually bend the truth as pleased…
The only things I remember: He made a mistake, involved me, tried to save his ass and blame everything on me.
Which would be actually okay for me if he would not involve several other people in his issues with me.
Since I said I will not tolerate this kind of stuff he tries to simplify communication to “colleague”-like atmosphere… but do colleagues really beg for birthday congratulations or attention? I do not think so.

So in the end… as my 2 months of ignoring did not fruit (as seen today with the lovely answer I received) I will try to talk to someone who might be able to solve this issue for me as appearantly I am not able to solve it directly. *sighs*
Kindergarden, here I come~ I will be the squealer this time to hopefully feel good in my work atmosphere again soon.

Hungry Kiba

I finally found a shop in Haarlem that sells frozen mice. So finally I can feed Kiba again with correct sized mice (fed him 2 weeks ago with 2 baby mice provided by a worl colleague of mine who owns a corn snake as well and bought some for me at her store near her place but he looked so disappointed that he “only” got snacks).
I did not have time to check out the shop last week (or more likely I did not go out on my days off, they’re closed on Wednesday, Thursday I had training and Friday I didn’t go either… Saturday my work end was overlapping with their closing time, they’re closed on Sundays) so I went this morning…

I really like the shop and the staff is nice (even if they barely speak English and I barely speak Dutch) but at least I got some mice to feed Kiba the next weeks.
Bought a pack of 15x 15-25 gram mice for 18,95 EUR. Quite the decent price but easier than importing 100x mice from Germany (so importing would be probably cheaper than buying 15x each time but at least I do not need to wait for a delivery)

So I wanted to feed my hungry snake when I got home but despite him being hungry and going after the shadow of my hand in the terrarium he is quite well behaving as usual when outside of the terrarium (= his territory) so I thought to take some pictures on my floor… so it was not the best idea to lie down next to him as he smelled my warmth and rushed towards me 😀 So he did not reach or bite me but it was a weird feeling – so I got some nice pictures like this one:
