This journal is mostly friends only. If you're really willing to end up on my friends list, please check my interests on the profile page and leave a comment on one of my public entries telling me a bit about you. We should at least have some things in common.


What is this journal about? Mainly fan stuff, bits and pieces from my daily life and whatever I consider worth writing about. I try to avoid drama, but sometimes life's a bitch, so a little whining here and there will most likely happen. But this is supposed to be fun, so I won't linger on those darker grounds for too long.

If you are here for the graphics resources I used to make, this entry will help you find what you're looking for. Enjoy your stay!

1Think about the year that has passed. All the memories, the entries and posts that made the year special. Think about all your past layouts, default icons, mood themes or whatever you consider worth remembering. The 2017 Scrapbook Post is a way to help you remember all of that, in a single post.

After two years of not even tackling my minimum of 15 books, I'm giving myelf another chance at the Goodreads challenge with 30 books. I just need to kick myself in the bum sometimes. Once I managed to get into a story, it's hard to make me stop. So let's give it a shot.

Last year was a disaster in many ways, including my poor reading mojo which died a painful death due to, uhm, complicated circumstances (and lots of Japanese films). So, new year, new beginnings and hopefully 35 books on my challenge shelf by the end of it.
Edit: I have to face it, my reading mojo is gone for now. No reason to violently force it back; that never works.

The image used in this year's banner (and that of the 2015 Scrapbook) are from Plumdog Blog by Emma Chichester Clark, featuring Plum, a whoosell (whippet, Jack Russell and poodle mix; she really exists), and many of her canine and human friends.

I challenged myself to read 42 books this year. Which means that, should I make it, I'll receive the answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. Now if that isn't worth reading every single book in this challenge, don't you think? ;o)
Edit: This wasn't a book year, so I gave up on my challenge and deleted it.

The images used in this year's banner (and that of the 2015 Scrapbook) are from the comic strip Drabble by Kevin Fagan, featuring dachshund Wally, duck parrot in disguise Bob and cat Oogie.

I thought I'd finally post the very few icons I made over the last roughly 2 years. If you don't like dogs, don't even bother - there's barely anything else. I think it's called 'obsession' or something like that. At least I have my priorities straight. ;o)

I'm still trying to read more (though I have to deal with the fact that I'll never become the avid reader I used to be again), and to encourage me in doing that, my books get another entry of their own instead of just being listed in my 2014 Scrapbook.

I challenged myself to read 40 books this year. I barely made my goal of 35 in 2013, but it's worth a shot. Let's be daring! By the way, here's the cute little cartoon the images are from. (© Leendert Jan Vis).

I challenged myself to read 35 books this year. Still not even remotely the amount I used to devour until roughly 10 years ago, but I'm making progress. I went for 30 in 2012, ended up with 38 (including 3 short stories), so that should be feasible. Wish me luck.

The image on my banner is from Mark O'Hare's comic strip Citizen Dog, one of my favourites. It shows cat Cuddles reading a newspaper. Because he's sophisticated like that. He loves Jane Austen, by the way. What a pur(r)ist!
