When other little girls wanted to be princesses, I kinda wanted to be Indianna Jones XD

I totally blame my dad, he raised me on Harrison Ford and Sean Connery films. I can actually trace most of my geekish neediness back to my father, but my mother isn't guiltless. My mum loves British Crime Shows, and since I was a bright little bugger who started reading rather early, I started watching them with her when I was rather young. I have a Christmas Tradition with my parents where we sit down one afternoon, make cinnamon waffles with almonds(my mum's recipe, super yummy.... Great now I'm hungry*pouts*) and we watch the old 'Murder on The Orient Express'. We've done this for as long as I can remember. So I blame my dad for my love for sci-fi and action films, and I blame my mum for my addiction to Crime/Mystery/Thriller shows and films. I blame them, and I thank them.

I will freely admit to hating most newer comedy films, I find them stupid and absolutely pointless, and I hate wasting my time on them. But I still love many different films and shows from many different genres, and I like to think I'm rather well rounded in my cinematic education.

Oh Dear Mahal, I'm such a geek! But you cannot change a tiger's stripes, and I like being a geek.

... I never thought I would say this, but I have an old apron that works wonders for my self confidence. It was given to me by my mother a little over a year ago, and it's a very fugly old thing. My mother's aunt sewed it to my mother years ago(when my mother was like 16 or something), it's brown with ugly little orange and white flowers on, and the cut is something straight out of the forties.

I dug it out yesterday to bake, and when I put it on.... I cannot remember the last time my waist looked so tiny! I was seriously shocked when I saw how tiny my waist is. I'm naturally pear shaped, with very generous hips(it makes finding pants that fit an absolute nightmare. If they fit over my hips, they're usually somewhere between 10 to 15 cm too long, and if the length fits they don't fit over my hips*sighs*.), and I'm kind of short(168 cm or 5"5') therefore I have a tendency to look a little chubby. But when I tied that apron it was like a revelation. I suddenly looked so very slim and I gave the illusion of a hourglass figure, my usually large hips balanced out by my tiny waist and my boobs. I have a generous C cup, but I still feel that my hips are way too large compared to them and my waist. But that apron made me feel good about my figure, and I actually felt sexy in that fugly old apron!

Is there a point to all this? Not at all, not besides the fact that sometimes old school/retro fashions can be amazingly good for your self image.

.... I miss having a cat. I mean I adore my parents' cat, but she's not mine you know? I can't help but looking at the pages of the shelters online, cooing over their cats and kittens. But I can do nothing until I get my own place again, and even then it has to be a place that allows me to keep a cat. Sigh, why haven't I gotten a place of my own yet? Oh Yeah, because I'm on the waiting list to the apartments I can afford while studying.

The weather SUCKS!!! One moment it's so cold Satan's tits would freeze off and the next there's suddenly a warm front over DK, and the rapid changes makes my osteoarthritis act up. So right now I'm doped up on painkillers, bed bound and bored out of my skull.

But on the upside - DAY OF THE DOCTOR!!! The 50th anniversary Doctor Who Special had me gasping, giggling and tearing up, and I love it. One of my favourite scenes is the one with the frozen exploding Dalek and the three, yes THREE, Doctors standing in front. One word: AWESOMESAUCE!!!



I feel I should warn you that I'm going to be doing some very random posts for a while now, just to get back in the habit of keeping up with my online life.m

Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to those Who celebrate it
