Ankündigung: Feuersänger aus der Preisbindung!

Wir unterbrechen dieses Blog für einen Moment schamloser Eigenwerbung. "Feuersänger" hat die Fesseln der Preisbundung hinter sich gelassen und es gibt ihn jetzt bei mir für 17,95 statt für 24,95.
Ich verschicke portofrei. Zum Vorbestellen bitte eine Mail an tina(at)tina-alba.de schicken oder hier einen Kommentar fallen lassen, ich melde mich dann.

Zum Buch:

Der junge Nithyara Feuersänger hat alles verloren: seine Heimat, seine Familie und seinen besten Freund und Lehrer. Die Shir athana, Dämonen aus Schatten, Furcht und Finsternis, sind zurückgekehrt und trachten danach, das Volk der Nithyara ein für allemal auszurotten.
Auf sich allein gestellt findet Feuersänger neue Verbündete und seine große Liebe. Der Sieg scheint greifbar, doch der Kampf gegen die Shir athana hat erst begonnen. Uralte Geheimnisse, Kampf, Tod – allem muss sich Feuersänger stellen. Doch dann kommt die Aufgabe, die größer ist als alles, was er bisher zu meistern hatte.

Meet Starshimmer...

... one of my most-loved rpg characters. This picture is made by my friend Eva (some of them may know her as "Javid" or "Nireo" or just as "one of the most cruel game masters I ever met").

Turbo 'flu

Ack. WTF????
What the hell is that? I started off into the new day this morning feeling healthy and really good, started to sneeze in the afternoon and have my head stuffed up by now.
Must be a really fast working virus. I hope it leaves as fast as it came!
*achoo*

Tarot Card Meme

Nicked by... anyone else, last seen at filkerdave's.


You are The Empress


Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.


The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.


The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Hmph...

This again. I'm getting so bored at work I started to gnaw fingernails. That only means that the stressy time is about to threaten again. I so HATE it, I am so fed up with either complete boredom or so much work that I am literally drowning in it.
Yeah, and it's *this* time, too. Urgh.
Plus, having to arrange a meeting with four to six people whose schedules are even fuller than mine is no fun.
BLRGH.

Good thing: Day-off tomorrow. On Saturday, hubby is going to an aquarium fair in Wilhelmshaven and will be not back until the late afternoon, so maybe I can do some songwriting or work on my story again.

Ballast Water and Baby Fish

Yesterday we ran the first true, real ballast water analyse. We drowned in work, literally. I don't know how we shall analyse samples in a time window of 24 hours, when the samples arrive at noon in our lab and are then already about ten hours old. Two workers need about 8 hours to do 2/3 of all analyses. Huh. What to do with the last third without one of us being cloned? Meh. No fun, really not.
So folks, please have mercy on me when I am quiet and not as talkative as I use to be here on LJ - I simply have no time. And when I'm finally home, I'm too tired and headachy for phone calls. Sorrysorry!
*hugs to all of you*

Some nicer announcements: we have baby fish again, two of our mouth-breeding mommys-to-be set their fry free yesterday night. It's interesting to see how even mouth breeders have different strategies. My hubby's Malawi cichlids have many (up to 30) very small eggs from which relatively small young hatch. They keep them in their mouth until they are fully developed and then set them free - about 30 very small baby fish.
My Lake Tanganyika mouth breeding cichlid (a Cyprichromis) had less eggs, they were bigger and so are the young - abut 12 mm. Big babies compared to the tiny, 4-5 mm Malawi babies! :)

You Are A Chestnut Tree

You are a born diplomat with a well developed sense of justice.
And even though you're impressive and intimidating, you're also fun to be around.
You can be irritated easily, and you sometimes act superior.
Nevertheless, you are sensitive of others feelings and very loyal.
Sometimes you feel misunderstood and are fiercely close to those who know you best.


Mostly that's what and how I am, right, but... folks, am *I* intimidating? Huh... :)
