Yesterday, after I walked my feet off sightseeing, we went to the theater and saw the Dark Knight. It was great for a Batman movie. Heath was awesome in it. But in parts it was a bit shallow. And it could have been better if the other actors had tried a bit more IMO. Plus I was ridiculously scared most of the time the Joker was on. I was ducking and had goosebumps. I don't remember that happening ever before. Today I'm staying home after I worked an hour later than I should have, because nobody wanted to go for drinks and I didn't want to go sightseeing again, since it's cold and the only thing I still want to see are the Speaker's Corner and the Ripper museum thingy.
So we join forces as fans and try to raise money for IC. We would really love for it to be a substantial amount that we can donate come June 13th (just before the convention she will be attending in London, where we will present her with a donation receipt).
To achieve that, we could really use everybody's help!
( The how, the what and the why )
Why Invisible Children?
Invisible Children is a large international movement, which fits the international character of the fanbase. Moreover, Invisible Children is an organisation that really moves people. Giving children a way to get educated instead of kidnapped to join a child army - that is simply fantastic.
This is what Invisible Children says about our idea:
|“I wanted to follow-up on this exciting idea! Kristen is a wonderful supporter of ours, |
and I'm so glad she has inspired others to make a difference.
If you have any questions about Invisible Children or how to get the
donation to us, please don't hesitate to email.
Thanks so much!
Invisible Children, Inc.”
If you have any questions, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much everyone!

Even my boyfriend being totally sweet and calling even though it's early over there and sending me cake over facebook and hugs and stuff even though his internet isn't working so he had to go the lab super early didn't help much. Makes me feel guilty. It did help but just not a lot.
I started three weeks ago. :D Yes, I'm that efficient. Anyway, today I finally dragged myself to work again. (You can't think about things if you're working.)
And I found passports. That I made as a kid. Two of them. Complete with all the details and a drawn picture of myself, one of them is even in three languages (Slovak, French and Russian (It's even in cyrillic!)). The kicker though, both of them have official customs stamps in there. :D Apparently I was irresistible as a kid and all of the customs officers fell for my cute pout because they seriously treated my passport like an official one. One of them even has kids written in there (probably some of my toys), with names and birthdates. I just laughed for five minutes straight with my mum. If you could see the passports you'd know why. Hilarious. The pictures of myself are the most hilarious part. :D
On another note, I booked my flights for Breakout Beyond! Yay. The hotel is booked too so the only thing I need to check is the tube tickets. Other than that I'm set. :D
Here is the article and the video interview.
She says my name! Whooohooo!
Now I need to go and work on applications. *pouts* I'm lazy.
Sign-ups for the KB fanbook are now closed! For those of you taking part, here is some info on how you can submit your contributions to us.
( info & contact details )
Seperate from the book, we are also going to be making a donation to a charity that Kristen supports, which we will then inform her of at the convention. We would really love any and all contributions from you guys, whether you're participating in the book or not! The bigger the donation we can make, the better.

I ♥ JENSEN:
(1) Currently there is a 'scientific' research on the Sexness of Jensen.
(2) This investigation is, however, still on-going. We need your input!
(3) Follow this link and help us out! [http://agent-maxine.livejournal.com/
(Also, kindly leave the comments in that research post, not here.)
This year, we'll do it again for Breakout Beyond!
For the people who hadn't had a chance to contribute last year. Or just want to write him again, make him something else or give him another gift. Because why wouldn't you, right? Jason is the nicest and most humble person, who made us love characters we weren't originally supposed to love. That says something about his skills! Most of the planning and updates on the project will be in the thread over at Fan Forum.
If you're not on Fan Forum, read more about the project and sign up HERE at the Breakout Beyond LJ community.
Anyway, ever since then, every time we have nice weather those two are out and about the South Courts. Seriously they stroll on the grass or the paths and just look around. I need to take my camera to one of the lectures so I can film them. :D They are really adorable. Fell like flatmates (I see them more often than some of my flatmates LOL).
Meme posts tomorrow, hopefully. :)
I'm going to go and crawl back to bed. And maybe eat soup later on.
I finally got around to start watching Moonlight since I handed in my last essay today! YAY!
Anyway, five seconds into it and I'm bored. Five seconds into JD's scene and I'm so far away from bored it's not even the same galaxy. And now I'm imagining Logan as a vampire. *grins* Although so far I like Josef more than Logan. Don't know why.
Now I'm going to go back to watching. :D
