  1. Welcome to the newest installment of TTTNE, a never ending series of threads to discuss everything under the sun as we roll past the holiday season and into the new year in the graceful, cinematic slo-mo of TTTNE present. What did have an ending, however, is Game of Thrones, stealing the Emmy for Best Drama just two nights ago as a final goodbye and (slightly controversial) end to an era. In honor of, our theme shall be: best dramas of past, that is, all the concluded series (drama or not) we loved, enjoyed and still revisit. Avatar renewals are welcome! PS: tell me if you dislike the theme or title, people, this is a democracy.

    I mean one depicts a rural autumn in sunny weather, the other a yucky urban rainy day. Hardly comparable Come on, you know I can’t be converted Not about autumn and Christmas, at least. (Don’t let my watching CXG fool you ) I do feel the dark, it kinda makes you feel like the day is over at 4:30.

    Pictionary 45: The Last Time I Went Camping

    I agree it’s much easier to reference drawings and sentences when the authors/artists are public, and it’s always fun to know who each solution belongs to as well. All I can say is to the creator of the Amazing snitch throwing tree picture, the adorable executive highlighter Character and stunning dark matter cloud. It is incredible to see the bullshit sentences I wrote turned into art, whoever drew them has some serious talent! also hats off to all who contributed to the chestnut - butterfly evolution, the executive highlighter - traffic cone evolution and the Harry Potter - Minnie Mouse metamorphoses Thanks for hosting, HC!

    Nobody knows. Not even the marketing manager of this much needed stationery item. Not even the product designer. but You clearly need a packet because it’s clearly superior to regular highlighters. You’re welcome, I know your life is much easier now and an aching customer need was finally satisfied... honestly I can’t believe the crap humanity produces these days.

    I can see that it was quite creepy, but for me it sort of added to its appeal. Oh I understand you so much. I didn’t leave the house all weekend except to go to corner shop to pick up some butter for the pancakes I’m making. I was just curled up at home allllll weekend and while I felt guilty about it yesterday, I’m kinda over it, because what the hell, every once in a while it’s acceptable and tolerable to just do nothing and not be productive. Ugh, that sounds awful! Ugh, I’m so sorry that was probably the last thing you needed maybe try cherry seed pillows? They are beatable and don’t leak for obvious reasons. Never had one but heard very good things about it.

    Congrats on being smokefree. Guys, I don’t understand this city’s food delivery market. We have Wolt, we have a competitor for Wolt, we have regular restaurant deliveries. The prices are pretty steep for what they used to be even a year ago. So how, HOW is it possible that my food delivery on a random Saturday evening is expected to arrive in 188 minutes, yes, ladies and gentlemen, you read right, 188 minutes. I could get dressed, go out, sit my arse down at a fully booked restaurant, order main course and dessert, pay and get back home in 188 minutes. Are. You. Freaking. Kidding. Me. I’m so sick of this city. I’m so sick of everything! Except for Kate Hudson romcoms. And heating pads. and chocolate.

    makes perfect sense. there’s a (slightly creepy) russian fairy tale, vasilisa the beauty, I’m sure Mrs Sith knows it too. I used to have a ridiculously beautifully illustrated book with fairy tales of various ethnicities, and Vasilisa the Beauty was my favorite of the collection. It was simultaneously magical and horrifying, and you couldn’t put it down no matter how creepy it got. Anyway, vasilisa is a pretty name

    I visited there for the first time when I was maybe 13ish? And then went back with school when I was 16 and loved it both times. Haven’t done any sightseeing in London since then, but I might check it out when I’m there next time. oh and good luck with Russian names, some of their girls’ names are absolutely beautiful! my personal favorite is Vasilisa.

    Glad you’re feeling okay and that mini sith 2 is all well! Don’t worry, still plenty of time to pick a name. Oh right! I remember that. Ah I should visit there again, it was my favorite sight when I first traveled to London.

    last year when I was ill, I binge watched those on Netflix. They were sooooo terrible. There was maybe one that was a pass, but most of them are unforgivably terrible. I can’t wait to see Last Christmas in the cinema, I have very low expectations, but Emilia Clarke will surely make it adorable. now I’m watching interior design masters on Netflix which is also a terribly edited reality show, but I really adore the contestant and I’m a sucker for interior design.

    Well, this is our shopping street. Well one of them. Nobody can say that I’m not obsessed with Christmas or don’t enjoy a bit of shopping, but I burst out laughing when I saw it. honestly, I’m not sure there are many ravens in Europe. The fields are most definitely covered in crows, I would say ravens most likely reside in... oh god my English sucks... arboretums? Does that word exist? Well parks and forests are considered national treasure and are under the protection of this or that organization. oh and somehow some way I ended up wearing men’s cologne today. Either I got the pour homme version or it just went bad, I have no clue how this happened but I feel unduly annoyed. I’m also on freshmen's ball duty tonight, and get to be sister’s one person glam squad. I think that’ll be fun, though who knows.

    Well sure, you enjoy them I don’t think Christmas drinks run by the name “Christmas drink”, it’s usually along the lines of Gingerbread Praline Eggnogg fluff hot chocolate and Nutmeg Toffee Cinnamon Orange Latte. I’ve been procrastinating getting a PO Box for ages. Then again, I’m 100% sure that a 12 year old with google could figure out where I live if he read twenty randomly selected posts of mine.

    Well I don’t remember attending 8am lectures either, so I’m rather apologetic about it. beverages with an obnoxious amount of sugar and artificial flavoring that our brains connect to christmas spirit thanks to decades of conditioning by society and hospitality industry? same here. I’m fine with it in November. But I agree that October is too early. Anyway, I just started getting into an autumnal mood now that it’s no longer 25C and my life isn’t 120% work as it was for the first 7 weeks for autumn. So I’m not actually ready to move onto the Christmas spirit yet.

    Well hello people! since we are past November 1st and All Saints’ Day, it’s officially Christmas in the retail industry. Sister (with whom I have already made peace) was disappointed to walk into Starbucks instead an 8am economics lecture today morning and find out that Pumpkin Spice Lattes are no longer available. And not only are Christmas drinks for sale at franchise coffee shops, there are actual Christmas trees raised in front of the malls she passed by, again instead of above mentioned economics lecture. I found approximately 8 promotional emails about Christmas deals and Christmas collections at homeware stores. One particular offer included two Microfibre pillow cases for approximately $20 - reduced from $40. Now, in this stamp sized corner of the post communist world, one can buy an entire king sized microfiber duvet set without any deal for 20 dollars. What’s more, one can buy an entire king sized COTTON duvet set without any deal for 40. I won’t deny that I’m easily bought with product design and marketing, but two basic, white, synthetic pillow cases for 20 dollars is no deal for any time of the year, let alone Christmas. How stupid do these retailers think people are? Of course, as the consumerist trash that I am, I will go to Starbucks to try the Christmas drinks in the afternoon. I suppose what I can do to ease my millennial guilt and global warming angst is not asking for my “coffee” drink to go but sitting my arse down and I slurp my way into early diabetes from a ceramic mug. Why am I so sardonic today? I’m actually in a good mood and I slept 8 hours.

    I think the best idea for me is to book a plane ticket, get out of my life and become and farmer in Australia. I do love animals, fresh air and lack of psychological damage, and I would have all the time to draw. Okay, I’ll stop being a drama queen and take a shower.

    I had a lovely two and a half days in the past three days as well, the weather was cold and crispy or rainy, but that’s okay. This is a lovely time of the year. Welcome! I agree that house was a lovely tv series. I adored the story, the character and the acting was ingenious as well. Sadly, I am now so pathetically hypochondriac and paranoid that I’m unable to watch any medicine themed television. Get well soon! I had the best family weekend in years on Friday and Saturday when I traveled home for All Saints‘ Day and then went to visit my aunt with my family. There was food and laughter and sugar and spice and everything nice. Like it wasn’t even my family. Today sister and I went to brunch which was all right and to an open zoo in one of the parks in the city which was lovely. Then I read a little, made dinner and we started watching Harry Potter 2. Which went great until she got the results of some half term exam which she failed and then she went ballistic. [insert rant] This girl will be the death of me, I swear.

    It’s almost 9pm over here and I’m drinking shit whiskey from the bottle to cope with this evening, so won’t be able to make the deadline, I’m terribly sorry. I will by all means send it in tomorrow, possibly in the morning, or - in the worst case - in the evening. Thank you for understanding and once again, sorry.
