Had a lovely birthday with me family. We'd planned an excursion, but niece is a bit ill, so we stayed at my brother's. Was very nice, and I got home at a humane hour, because I slept like crap last night. There was no real cake for obvious reasons - but my awesome sister-in-law created a "deconstructed" black forest cake with chocolate muffin (hers are the best!), cherries, cream and chocolate ice cream. Yum!

Time for music! 

Created my annual mix - 25 songs I heard first this year (not necessarily new), no artist more than once. This year new with Asian pop! :)
Spotify: open.spotify.com/playlist/1pcM (missing 4 songs)

I love pre-code movies! It Happened One Night, for example, is one of my all-time favourites, but just now I rewatched Design for Living, which is a delight. It's got a canon polyamorous triad at its centre - its ending would still be considered progressive today.

After losing my custom aro-ace ring during my summer vacation, I kept my eyes open for a replacement. Apparently, a black ring on your middle finger (albeit on the right hand but that doesn't really suit me) is a symbol for , and I figured I'd combine it with a green one for aromantic. They're stone & very comfy to wear. Gotta let my flag fly! 😎

Had a lovely (and yummy) afternoon taking High Tea with a friend - a birthday present from *last* year. β˜•

It's officially autumn - happiness!
(Seriously, I put on the tights-socks-skirt combo with glee.:bb8: )

Just spent the afternoon with my mom, doing a guided tour of a hydropower plant - organising these is actually my job, but this week one of the turbines is dry, so we got a special bts view...

I'm back in Switzerland - last week was a dream and I had no desire at all for anything internet. Didn't even post any photos to Instagram, only checked my email a couple of times. Felt good! Now I'm very happy to have the rest of the week off, too, since I don't feel like going back to work at all. :)

And how are things with you guys?

I... didn't know Wang Yibo looking rather fay with a blonde bob would be a Thing for me. But yes. Definitely a Thing, who'd have thunk. And boy, can he move!

It's so fucking hot, there are literally NO children on the playground. (I'm only outside bc I need to drop sth off for work.)

Verona yesterday was incredibly pretty (if touristy). Skipping the con was definitely a good idea. ;) Today we're back on our regularly scheduled fangirling, though, which will also be loads of fun, I'm sure.

Made it home at a humane time, considering I have to go to work tomorrow.

The wedding was great - saw some people again that I hadn't in years and years & met some new ones I got along with very well. Got a nice reaction to my speech & even lindy hopped with the groom.

Only wish I'd had more time with the bride, but yeah, it's been a lovely day, although unsurprisingly my social batteries are quite depleted. Now, sleep! :)

Went back to the con this morning, to see Seb's panel and catch some people I met yesterday. Now heading into Rome for a bit of a wander around, since the weather is beautiful, the con hotel has a free shuttle and I'm already here. :)

Got all my extras and caught a couple of panels (via screen, as access to panel room costs extra). Highlight was obviously the photo with SebStan, but I also fell a little in love with Ricky Whittle, who's a gorgeous goofball. And being one of only a handful of cosplayers I met so many people & never had to wait around alone. Might actually go back for a few hours tomorrow. No more extras though, need to be a responsible adult & remember that I'll have to pay for my laptop repair next week. :)

This con is so tiny, compared to what I'm used to, but hey, I found a Bucky (and apparently there's a Cap around somewhere)!

If anyone's into Lucifer or late Buffy - today at the con I got to enjoy a lovely laid-back meet & greet with D.B. Woodwise today! 🀩

Fellow fans, look what came in the mail today! I don't wear a lot of necklaces, but I love stealth fandom. 😍

Okay, so I think that's as close as I can get - I can report that he's tall (taller than his security) and that he definitely needs said security.
I also took advantage of local privilege and followed into the hotel, but was a sane human being and went to the loo instead after him up the stairs. :)

Show thread

Yeah, so the Chopard booth at Baselworld is by appointment only. There's a whole bunch of Chinese girls camped out in front of it.
