Positive Entry??

For once, I'm feeling in a decent mood this morning, so I figured I'd better write an entry here that is positive for a change! *lol* I don't have much to write about - as nothing much has happened since last night! - but I've gathered a bit of fun trivia, links etc and I thought this would be a good entry to post that!

First off, I actually found a German translation of my blog! (done through Google, I think) It feels very strange to read everything in German, but it really looks cool! I did take German for six years in school, but I have more or less forgotten everything I have ever learned - but I still think it's cool to check it out!

You Are an Alien

You're so strange, people occasionally wonder if you're from another world.
You don't try to be different, but you see most things from a very unique, very offbeat perspective.
Brilliant to the point of genius, you definitely have some advanced intelligence going on.
No matter what circles you travel in, you always feel like a stranger. And it's a feeling you've learned to like.

Your greatest power: Your superhuman brain

Your greatest weakness: Your lack of empathy - you just don't get humans

You play well with: Zombies
What Kind of Monster Are You?

So ... what is you Harry Potter Name?!

My Harry Potter Name is : Lavender Bladvak

My Elf Name is: Nessa Vardamir
And My Hobbit Name is: Ruby Moss of Lake-by-Downs

I've been convinced to join Facebook although I wasn't too keen on the idea! I'm not constantly active there, I tend to be very active for a day or so, then I hardly log in at all ... but if you like you can "check me out"!

Oooh, and finishing off with some positive personal news!
I finally got the money back from Paypal!!! YAY!! YAY!! YAY!! They let me know about a week ago that I had won our "dispute" (since the seller didn't even respond *stupid guy!*), but I wouldn't get all my money back! I had payed US$215 (1410 SEK), and Paypal has a money-back-guarantee of $200, minus a fee of $25, so I did get $175 back, which turned out to be 1100 SEK! Not that bad ... even though I had rather wanted the DVD box of course!
Still, with those money and some selling at Tradera in January when I get back after the holidays, I'm hoping to get the Stargate SG-1 Box Set maybe sometime around my birthday! *fingers crossed*

I hope you enjoyed this a bit more up-beat blog entry this morning!
Also a small reminder to those of you that haven't participated in my labels-vote (in the right column), to please place your vote! It only takes a second and is completely anonymous. You have until the end of the months, and the way things are looking now, I will start 2008 (when I get home) by trying to label all my previous posts! :) :)

Take care, guys!

Hey ! great to read a happy blog entry :) :)

That harry potter name thing was cool... i found it interesting how your name totally changes depending on how many "middle-names" you put in...'lol*

cool graphic btw !! I really have to make some graphics too..i never seem to have the time...'sigh*

and wonderful that you finally got your money back YAY!!!!!

Jessica said...

Yeah, I thought I'd better get a happy entry in while I could ... haven't been many of those around lately!

I hadn't thought of entering other than your first and last name, but you're right, I tried it, it really changed a lot!

Glad you like the graphic - still totally obsessed with Stargate, now that I got my money back, buying the box will be top priority when I get back after the holidays!! (They will also release two feature films, one next year already *yay*)

Dakota said...

Yay! You got your money back! :-)
That's great!! :-)

Jessica said...

Dakota: Yeah, even though I didn't get all of the money back, at least I got most of it ... yay!!! And I TOTALLY know what my first major purchase of 2008 will be!!! *lol*

The Darkest Night said...

yeah that was cool! What was really funny was that i always got pretty long names, except when I used my first name, one middle name, and last name..then I only got one :)

Jessica said...

I wonder how they create something like that ...:) But it sure is cool! :D
