This is going to be pretty image-heavy, of course.

It took a day longer because of the whole ongoing mess with the ashes from Puyehue, but I'm finally back from Buenos Aires! I have long, actual posts prepared and I'll upload the photos, but I still need to type everything so that'll take a bit more.

Oh, and I read White Night on the trip. So that's another post.

Expect spam in the next few days. =D

I'm going on vacation tomorrow, so I'll disappear from the face of the internet until July.

See you later! :)

→ This video is gorgeous: Growing is Forever. TREES *__________*

→ I'm going back to Buenos Aires today, sooo I'll disappear until tomorrow afternoon at least. o/

Oddly enough, I don't have a lot of photos of actual birds. I used the binoculars a lot more than the camera, after all. :P But I still have stuff to show you!

Image heavy, of course )
laurus_nobilis: (Jane & nature)
I'm back from the Bird Fair! IT WAS AMAZING and you'll get a proper post about it later, when I decide which photos are interesting enough to upload.

For now let's just say that the icon is a perfect summary of the whole thing =DDD

And speaking of icons, [ profile] pellimusprime made my new default one! Which is kind of relevant too. :P

Aaaand I have to catch up with fandom stuff, now. Namely Transformers: Prime and the new FMA omake. Merlin can wait until the finale.

Today on Crazy Crossover Corner: Cosmos/TARDIS. Yeah. I don't even know. :P

Anyway, in more important, real life news: I'm going away until next Monday, to watch birds with other hippie nerds.

See you next week =DDD

So I spent most of yesterday wondering why on earth people were so upset about LJ adding a ticky-box they can just ignore if they don't want to crosspost, and then I read that other people can crosspost your stuff. Uh. Ooookay. Why are those things never clear?

You know the drill, don't crosspost without asking. I feel like I'm preaching to the choir here, though.

In completely unrelated news: it's raining, so my dog's inside the house. The plate with her food is still outside, somewhere dry. And a neighbour's cat keeps sneaking towards it, staring at me for a few seconds to see if I'll kick him out, and then sneaking away again with some food. Every five minutes or so. It's so ~careful~ and everything.

I'd love to share a photo but of course, every time I try to take one he runs away. Oh well.

En palabras de Fu: blog de pajaritos =D (Y algunas plantas)

Non-Spanish speakers can go look at the bird photos anyway. It's not like there's a lot of text.
laurus_nobilis: (Winter!)

In unrelated, fandom news:

There's comment fic going on here, or you can sign up for longer fic here.

And I signed up for Transformers, of all things. Because I already had a Sari-related idea I wanted to write, yes, but mostly because the TF attitude to female characters bothers me a lot. THERE ARE CANON FEMALE CHARACTERS. You don't have to like them, you don't have to write about them, but stop it with the "they're really all genderless so they're not really girls" thing when THERE ARE CANON FEMALE CHARACTERS. I don't care if it's "unrealistic" for robots to have gender, it a canon about giant transforming space robots. And that's what you focus on? Really?

... sooo I thought I'd be productive and channel my ranting impulse into fic. =D

ETA to avoid spam: New layout! =D Yes, those are lyrics from A Whole New World, shut up. It fits.
laurus_nobilis: (Music!)
I wasn't going to write anything about our Bicentennial, actually. Mostly because I don't have a lot to say. I'm not that great at history or politics.

... but then the internet at large reminded me of Geek Pride day, and everyone's talking about some fake revolution from a Pterry book, and it feels just wrong not to say anything about, you know. Our VERY REAL REVOLUTION. (Which isn't to say that people shouldn't post about that! It made me think about my own not posting, that's all.)

I'm still bad at history, though. I don't want to bore you all. Aaaand to be honest I'd rather think about the good things about my country instead of about politics.

So: have some music!

Videos in here! )

My brother linked me to this:

Child prodigy Adora Svitak says the world needs "childish" thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism. Kids' big dreams deserve high expectations, she says, starting with grownups' willingness to learn from children as much as to teach.

video under the cut )

I don't agree with everything she says and I had a couple of "yes, but you live in the USA" moments, but it's definitely worth listening to.

Me acabo de enterar por Nina que hubo un terremoto en Argentina también así que aviso que no fue por acá. (Y enseguida puse el noticiero y no estaban diciendo nada. Y en los diarios online está difícil de encontrar.)

Aparentemente fue en la zona de Salta-Jujuy-Tucumán. Acá en Buenos Aires no se sintió nada.

... y ya que estoy, [ profile] ilye_aru? [ profile] niconeko? ¿Alguien sabe algo?

ETA: SORRY I DIDN'T THINK TO SAY THIS IN ENGLISH. I was thinking of the Latin American part of my flist, but I just realized it's. probably scarier this way for non-Spanish speakers.

Anyway. It's an I'M OKAY post, and if you hear/read about an earthquake in Argentina, it was far from where I live.

Hi, everyone! I'm back, and I come with photos. =D It was a work trip, yes, but we used the weekends to go sight-seeing and travel around. So, here you go:

Pictures! )

ETA: My sister took all the photos. :P Just saying, because everyone is "ooooh, shiny photos" and they're not mine. |D

Going away!

Well, everyone, just wanted to let you know that I'll be away from tomorrow until the 25th - going to Mexico! :) I don't know much internet access and/or free time I'll have so consider me gone from LJ these two weeks.

Sooo... I leave you guys my Dragcave scroll, because there's this one hatchling that still hasn't grown. :/

Also! I never post these memes, but this time I actually replied to everyone else's, so:

Hey everyone! :D

I'm obviously back. I had a lot of fun, and I'll post a few photos when I organize them. And since I've been internet-less for over a week... I really don't think I'll catch up with aaaaall of my flist. So let me know if I've missed anything important!

Time to go and de-hiatus at the RPGs, now. /o/
laurus_nobilis: (Ace of Hearts)
Just a quick post to let you know I'll be at the beach and with no internet access until the 16th. See you all then! o/

Also: I did my best to get my last hatchling to grow before I left, but couldn't manage it. :/ Would someone please post it at the fansite ER while I'm gone so it won't die? It's got about a day and a half left.

Adopt one today! (It's the only non-adult dragon I've got, but here's the scroll just in case.)

Because I've said it everywhere except in my own LJ: I'm going to Bariloche tomorrow! :D
laurus_nobilis: (Books are love)
I know I haven't really mentioned this, being a fandom journal and everything, but:


The funny thing is, it feels as if I'd graduated ages ago...
