♔Grotesque Burlesque♔


Last weekend I went to Copenhagen Grotesque Burlesque: Opera of the Underworld, together with Damien. It's an awesome costume party, with amazing performers and beautifully dressed up people all over the place. Even the place was decorated for the occasion, with wicked mannequins, fog machines and the like. The atmosphere was truly wonderful and people really seemed to have fun and let loose. I was totally taken back by how creative people had been with their outfits. There were adventurers, a fantastic Jessica Rabbit, and one who was wearing nothing but a long wig! Oh, if I should go through all the stunning costumes people wore, it would take me several hours to write it all down I think. I can definitely recommend everyone to go next time Copenhagen Burlesque throws a party, I know I will!

I would like to welcome our newest family members! Me and my roommate Demi had been talking for ages about getting pet rats. This last month we have been running from place to place, picking up essential things for our soon-to-be pets (with essential stuff, of course I'm talking about baby pink bedding). 3 days ago, it was finally time to go pick them up. So here they are!

Tiny, tiny Yolandi. She's the cutest baby ever! So calm despite her new surroundings, and she loves to snuggle. She even fell asleep in my lap on the very first day♥

And not so tiny Tofu♥ She's no doubt the most talkative rat I've ever met. But she's a teenager, so I'm not surprised haha. She should have been born a parrot, I'm sure, 'cause she always sits on my shoulder and tweets.

I started school this Thursday at VUF. It's gonna be so weird studying again, but I'm looking forward to it none the less (except living off my SU for 2 years, when I'm used to waitress salary). I haven't had Japanese or Psychology yet, but they're definitely the subjects I think I will enjoy the most, so I'm excited about next week♥

Sweet dreams everyone!♥♥

I know it's old news, but I figured... who cares? I went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on the premiere night. Actually, I had bought tickets for a marathon that showed all the movies during 2 days, so I watched a lot more than just part 2! (Though I didn't watch all of them, after all I've watched them a bunch of times before). They had decorated the cinema really neatly, with dementors and brooms in the ceiling. And I've never been to a HP premiere where so many had dressed up for the occasion. It felt good, since it was the last HP premiere I would ever attend, so it was nice that people made it special. Actually, I also felt a bit sad, I almost didn't want to see the last movie because I didn't want it all to end haha xP Of course, I couldn't resist. As for the movie... of course it was amazing, I truly loved it♥♥

I also finally finished Final Fantasy X for PS2. It's weird, before playing it, I believed I would never come to like Japanese RPGs. I had tried playing another FF game briefly on PSP, but I just didn't like the combat system, which is turn-based. But what do you know... I really came to love the battle system and the game in general. I'm almost sad it's over, because it was very entertaining♥ I haven't even gotten around to playing another game since then, maybe because I miss playing FFX and don't wanna leave that universe just yet. I always feel like that when getting to the end of something, whether it's books, movies or games.

On another note, I tried a Japanese restaurant that I've wanted to try for ages. It's called Sukiyaki and last week I finally had a chance to go there. I had their tempura udon and gyoza, it was so very delicious. I'm surprised at how many different vegetables they had used, it was a very nice surprise. I wanna go there again to try some of their other dishes for sure!

Last Friday, Ane held her birthday party. We stayed at her place and got drinks before going to Club Celcius, where we danced our legs off! (almost). It was such a fun evening/ night, I think everyone there would agree ;D
Here's a video of us singing birthday songs for her and Thomas. Haha, it reminds me why I shouldn't drink .___.

Movie by Maria

Take care everyone♥♥
