Zurich 2011, part 1: Art on Ice!  
I've been dying to post about Zurich and Art on Ice for over a week now, but job stuff cockblocked me. Anyway, here we go with the Art on Ice section. Warning: photo-heavy and a couple of wobbly vids, plus overuse of the words 'amazing', 'favourite' and 'loved'. ;)

Sparkly, shiny things under the cut )

Black Swan  
People who have seen my icon and recognise the film it's from (The Red Shoes, 1948) will probably guess that I've been eager to see Black Swan for a while now. I couldn't wait for an official UK release, either... LOL.

Longish, rambling review; cut for spoilers )

World Cup Final  
Congratulations Spain!!! :D

I'm so glad they won; this Dutch team did not deserve it, sorry to say. They should have been down to 9 men at half-time. Their game plan was so cynical, Van Bommel especially. It would've been a travesty if they'd won since the teams of Cruyff and Van Basten didn't.

Poor Torres, though. :/

It's been a crazy World Cup, but I think the right team won in the end.

This is a sporty post  
How am I supposed to get this dissertation written with the football and tennis on?!

It's been a cray-cray World Cup, for sure. I can't believe the two finalists of 2006 are both out before the knockout stages. On a more familiar note, England are making me suffer and now we're playing Germany. [livejournal.com profile] charly2004 and I knew this would happen! Regardless of who wins out of Germany/England (and I think we all know it'll be Germany lol), the route to the final is most likely filled with Argentina, Spain and Brazil for the winner. Oh dear. Am very tempted to put money on Uruguay actually, because the other half of the draw looks easier. The South American teams have definitely been the most impressive so far.

Also, come on Switzerland! ;)

It looks like the weirdness of the WC has spread to Wimbledon. Epic game was epic. I feel like Isner should've been given a bye to the next round, since he played the equivalent of about 4 matches this round..

Rafa and Roger: get your acts together, tyvm.

England also winning 2 games to 0 against Australia in one day series (I'm now on to cricket, in case you're confused). Always good.

Ah, I love summers of sport. :)

Happy Valentines Day!  
Sending you all lots of love and hugs. :) Please help yourself to these delicious red velvet cupcakes made by my own fair hand this afternoon!

Mmm, so good. The cream cheese frosting is to die for. I even managed to avoid getting red food dye all over myself, haha.

And thank you [livejournal.com profile] elanna9 for the love and tasty virtual V-Day chocolates! You're the best. ♥

Today is one of those (many) days when I am in awe of my friends' talent. In one single day my flist has been blessed with two amazing fics by two amazing authors. After a crappy day, these were wonderful treats to come home to. ♥

>> First up, [livejournal.com profile] elanna9 has continued her 'Sleepless' series (LoTR, Aragorn/Legolas) : Fearless

This is one of my absolute favourite LoTR fics and I'm so happy she's still writing it! :)

>> And [livejournal.com profile] lady_razzle has written an absolutely beautiful wingfic (Merlin, Arthur/Merlin) :

Even if you're not usually a fan of wingfic, check this out. Actually, even if you're not in the FANDOM, check it out. I guarantee the awesome.

Because apparently when I have assignments due it becomes vitally important that I open Photoshop and procrastinate... :P Apologies for cross-posting.
