End of the year blah

Sorry, long time no post.

Update: Christmas was okay. I was at my parents' place on the 24th and 25th. My sister's boyfriend was there, too, for the first time. We played some board games. Very exciting : )

As presents, I got loads of DVDs. Most of them Clive Owen films, and of course the Prison Break Season 1 box. Yay. Love the audio commentaries. Unfortunately there's none by Wentworth Miller. I wonder why. Hm. Too bad. The specials on disc 6 are very interesting as well. They were the first thing I watched when I got home on the evening of the 25th.

On Wednesday I met up with a friend/former co-worker. We hadn't seen each other in over a year, I think, so we had a lot of catching up to do. So we sat in a Starbucks for hours and talked. The Creme Brulee Latte was too sweet for me, though. And the next day I went shopping with my sister and we also went to Starbucks cos I felt like I was still half asleep, but what did I do instead of ordering some "normal"-tasting coffee? I go for the Vanilla Latte. Too sweet as well. Yuck. The Christmas Blend they sell tastes good, though. Bought a bag cos I thought it had some spices in it (cinnamon etc.). That's not the case, though. Whatever.

Still haven't seen 3:10 to Yuma. Wanted to go tonight but I have a headache. Argh.

The usual blah

First of all, I'd like to reply to 2w10's comment to the post below: As I think I mentioned, I need to use the Germain railway next Saturday. As far as I know, the most recent news was that they wouldn't go on strike again until Dec 3. I really have no idea what I'm gonna do if they start striking again after that. Okay, I do have a car ... but I'm an awful driver. And I paid 50 bucks for the train ticket already.
Christmas ... I don't know. I'm not feeling christmassy yet. But I did bake cookies with my mum yesterday. And I just ordered some stuff from Amazon as presents for a couple of people. But as I'm not feeling good today I'm not in the mood for anything. Oh, but I put a kind of Adventskranz on my living room table. It's not really a Kranz, but a Gesteck with 4 candles that my mum made. It comes in the classic Christmas colours green, gold and red and smells good.

What else? 2 movies are coming up that I'm looking forward to: 3:10 to Yuma (Todeszug nach Yuma) starring Christian Bale. I had heard of it but had no idea it is a Western and starting so soon here! Love CB in turn-of-the-century type movies cos I just like the clothes and think he looks good in it. The other one is Elizabeth part 2 - The golden kingdom or whatever it's called. Saw a picture of Clive Owen as Sir Walter Raleigh in a magazine yesterday. Hot. Both films are opening on Dec 13 in Germany. Speaking of Clive Owen, I watched Derailed on DVD last weekend ... oh boy ... not very enjoyable. Owen plays a quite weak character - a man who is blackmailed by a guy who always wants more -
and that just doesn't go very well with my idea of Clive Owen who to me seems quite strong and masculine etc.
Hm, now I sound as if Clive is a bad actor. That was not my intention. I can't really explain it, it was just a strange film.

Need coffee. Only had decaf this morning. Am tired. Can't form complete sentences. Hehe.
