Generally speaking, a frustrated spin glass is a disordered magnet system with conflicting interactions between the spins. Diverse forces prevent the spin glass from reaching the energetic minimum (which is the longed-for destination of all systems) - thus, making the system frustrated.

Applying the phenomena to one certain [personal profile] lokuro-particle, one might observe a disturbing amount on fidgetiness. The inability to relax and therefor to function properly. When I'm at work, I keep on thinking about Tintin, comparing the Captain to Bertie Wooster and dream up some weird fanfiction plots.
When at home I'm unable to shoot the university stuff down (and thus, making my fandom-related posts absolutely unreadable).

The upcoming presentation I have to prepare for the next Friday isn't that comforting either. I still don't fully grasp the subject, which makes it a bit difficult to speak about it (in English!) for full 40 minutes. Plus, 20 minutes discussion afterwards.
"Most disturbing, Sir."

So, I'm trying to bring peace to my inner tumour by the good old methods... no, the 81% chocolate with chili isn't working anymore: it's the air-gun shooting :)

It's been years since I've been to my club (well, to be precise: half a year) and the established clientèle certainly isn't getting any younger (with an average member being about twice my age). But somehow I find all these nice grannies and respectable old-fashioned gents adorable.

As for the shooting itself. Gosh, I've been missing the soothing feeling

Don't get any wrong ideas but it's the most calming sport I know. And I've been into a lot of... well, martial arts :) Now, I'm almost ready for that nasty presentation next week. Almost.

_______________________________________________


Another way too calm the spirits down are fashion posts. It's raining, so I'll try to be as colourful as my camera and the GIMP program allowed. Welcome to the Haddock!ascot inspired neck porn session ;)

One take a normal navy-blue shirt. The sleeves rolled up, the neck exposed.
(Yes, it's supposed to be wrinkled. It's silk, okay? I just don't trust myself anywhere near it with an iron.)


Um. Perhaps not exactly my best shoot - the worn out home-wear trousers kind of destroys the whole atmosphere of deluxe and fashion.



Oh, that one is much nicer, thank you, dear cam.

Now for the different neck wear :)



(here is the larger version)

I especially like the third one - it's such a lovely contrast :)



And while we are at it - two more scarfs. This times it's no comic related whatsoever, I'm just a huge scarf-fan. The first one was a present from my Mum and the second is a self-made from my best friend.

                 

Do you have any fancy neck wear? Ties, scarfs, different patterns and styles? Feel free to pack it all in the comments ;)

Also, since it's summer and a part of my f-list is already posting amazing dresses... My tribute to the summer feeling. And in fact, the one and only dress which still fits me. Sadly :( Oh, and please, just ignore the mess in the background, the photo is from the last week and I was tiding up while the dress-topic arose in their comments :)



A colourful weekend, ahoy!



PS.: The Tintin-vid is now download-able (last entry) since it's blocked in Germany and I can't see it anymore, which is kind of annoying. I know it's not that good but I'd like to decide it myself and not via youtube jury.

Shooting IS relaxing. You wouldn't think it because of the noise, but the precision is very calming to a perfectionist. My liberal friends are appalled that I defend guns because they think guns = violence, but for me there is something so nice about moving a small object from point A to point B with great speed and accuracy. These days I like archery even better because it isn't as noisy as a firing range.

Your pictures are lovely! I adore the way a scarf can lead the eye into the opening of a shirt. It's very sexual, but without the vulgarity of showing skin.

I'll look for some pictures of some of my scarves when I get back from brunch. :)

Probably a fictional character doesn't count, but I don't know for sure. I keep my online fannish obsessions and my RL mostly separate, so it has never come up. (I LOVE Tintin's shooting stance where he braces his firing hand on his folded left arm! I've never seen anyone shoot like that, but when I mimic the position I find that it's actually very steady!)

This is the scarf I wore to brunch this morning:



It's from the 1939 New York World's Fair which is a historical event that I used to be obsessed with. It's hard to see in the picture, but the scarf says 1939 (backwards because of the mirror) and shows the Trylon and the Perisphere. Not pictured are my bright yellow heels which totally make the outfit.

I hope you are enjoying Science Slam!

I would feel uncomfortable if anyone from my RL saw my fanart or read my fanfiction. Other fannish people understand because they do the same things themselves, but I don't like having to explain or defend myself to people who think it's weird to be intensely interested in something fictional.

Also, I'm deeply in love with how focussed he looks in those moments. And let admit it - professionalism is sexy

Yes! Professionalism and competence is pretty much the sexiest thing there is.

you are very fashionable young lady!

It is nice of you to say so. I never used to care about clothes or fashion at all, so it always surprises me to hear myself described that way.
