First I didn't want to go, then my mom said I have too and finally a guy who I haven't talked with in ages gave me a call and asked if we could meet at the Gamescom.
Who am I to turn this question down? And to be honest - I know it drives a lot of people insane, but I'm best if the planning is spontaneous. Surprisingly everything works best if I haven't had days or weeks before to plan every detail ahead.

DSC00122So at Friday morning I was on my way to Cologne (From my point of view it was an excellent choice that the Convention moved from Leipzig to North-Rhine-Westfalia - train tickets are cheaper.)
When I arrived, my first thought was: OMFGBBQ! Kabuki in heaven... Games, games and even more games. But I wasn't only there for personal entertainment.
Just had to find a way to combine pleasure and work.
Pleasure: Drooling over Games like Tekken 6, Diablo 3, Final Fantasy XIV ...
Work: Meeting people, exchanging business cards, drinking coffee ...

Things I've learned: I can drink coffee, exchange cards and drool at the same time, except it involves Final Fantasy VII.
The apprehension, that fulfilled itself: I was weeping about my PC's Benchmark. And it's more then 13 days till Christmas.

One of my personal highlights was of course the new Guild Wars 2-Trailer. And if I only need a new PC for this game.



A shiver ran down my spine when I watched it for the first time. Seriously.

♥ Although the biggest personal highlight was the cellphone incident ♥ - I'm still pouncing about it.
DSC00120After lots of coffees, a horrible Pizza and even more coffee (and some biz'-talk) I finally left the Gamescom around 7:30pm to meet up with Sphinxeofthenile, Ice_Lady and Naurring. Three absolutely lovely ladies - and I think some people were kind of shocked, when they heard what we were talking about the whole time. To sum it up: It was for fiction-research XD. And I need the song, Ladies!
In the end a rabid plotbunny jumped at me around 3 am in the morning while we we were waiting for my train and dug it's vicious teeth deep into my already fried brain.
A bunny that still causes a major headache. Reeve Tuesti and Lazard in a Bar ...

I would have loved to stay for the whole weekend in Cologne, but to quote my favorite Warcraft-Orcs: 'Work, work, work...'
So I missed the attempts of a lot of Cosplayers to break the world record and lots of other fun stuff. One day isn't for sure enough to see everything - alone the waiting time in front of Blizzard's Diablo 3-Presentation was more than four hours (and that at 2 pm.)
And it's a completely different feeling to attend such a huge Convention as fan or with serious biz in mind. It was the first time for me, so it was really good that I was on my own - but I know for sure that next year I have to go twice (or buy a ticket for the whole week ^.^) and have to drag my Dad with me.

I'm a fangirl - my friends know my quirks. And well, my mobile plays the Turk-Theme.
I never thought that would bring me in the situation I was in today. my little fangirl ♥ is still pouncing
One of my boys told me that Yoshinori Kitase is at the Convention. And of course Kabuki had to run for an autograph. Just when I asked if he could sign me a piece of paper my phone rang. Not that it wasn't obvious that I'm a fangirl before *cough*. To cut a long story short, I ended up showing some of my images to one of my personal heroes. And it seemed like he liked 'em.

Edit: corrected some misspellings - the longer version of Kabuki on the loose in Cologne will follow soon.
Edit 2: Never try to edit something, when you're still half asleep ...

Instead of hanging out at the Gamesconvention I have to move furniture. And of course it has to be the hottest day of the year so far....
But maybe it's good that I'm not in Cologne. I would probably cry and spent money I don't have on a new PC. I had to make the sad conclusion that upgrading my current machine doesn't make much sense. I need more RAM, a better processor, a new mainboard ... well, just do the math.
Once I have what I want, I have to get so many new games - the trailer for the new id-Game looks oh so tasty


And besides all complaining - the new office rocks. It's so beautiful. And I have a room for my own, I can decorate the way I want. My boss even allowed me to put some of my drawings at the walls.

Edit: My mom just called and asked if I will go to the Gamecon. And she's the opinion I really should. Anybody in the greater Bielefeld Area who wants to share a train-ticket on Saturday?

My neighbors hate me. They really do. After my pre-b-day depression yesterday, I'm in an awful good mood this morning.
☆☆☆Thanks to Noc and Arki for the lovely b-day wishes.☆☆☆

Getting ready for work and jamming to the new Alice Nine PV:



My neighbors hate me *trallala*

... the proof was given at the Train-station in Hamm on the way back from the animagic2009.

I had such a great weekend - maybe the make up for the whole last week. It started with more stress than necessary. And a major headache. First I had a car, then not, then my brother stepped in, then he decided that he felt uncomfortable with me driving the long distance to Bonn. So he gave me the train-ticket as early birthday present.
To cut a long story short - Sweet Gwen and I made it to the convention in the end ... nearly in time.

We found Noc pretty soon and started one of our favorite activities: trash-talking. Some of the cosplays were a pain in the eye not so good. But others were just breathtaking.
Hogwarts Fieldtrip
Although the stress of the week before took it's toll - I wasn't as talkative as usual and my neck was stiff and hurt like hell - it was so awesome to watch all the great costumes. The whole atmosphere was amazing.
Unfortunately I neither had a ticket for the con itself nor any money to spent on books, films or posters. (Birthday is 4 days too late. Or the con was too early ;_; ) And I could only stay for Saturday.

On the way back I met some more really nice people - including the smoking Genesis and a group of Visus'. And had a long debate with my inner-self. I will be at the Connichi for sure. And this time not as civilian. Maybe I even finish my Mononoke-Cos till then. (And then I have no reason to back up from LARP's anymore *sigh*- with some changes the outfit works also for my planned character. A 'medicine'-seller *cough* )

(Sorry, this seems to turn into a Socks Missing in Action-Post)

Today was the day, I was really afraid of. My Dad's fiftieth birthday.
omfgbbq - it's pink
And after all the screwed up stuff which happened the last weeks I was so horrified that I would mess things up.
But ... everything went completely smooth.
I managed to clean up my whole apartment. And my cake was a blast. Chemistry in its purest form. But it tasted good.
And the best: No arguments at all with my parents and grandparents.

For a change a really nice and relaxing weekend. ^_^
