it’s kind of funny…

…this feeling inside. (I think if I’m gonna run my entry subjects into the entry itself then I should show the subject on the main page, shouldn’t I. ^^;; *doesn’t like showing that side of her weirdness so visibly*)

Hm. Stryker said “kind of Coldplay” about Snow Patrol. I never thought of that. But then again, I’ve only ever heard two of their songs. ^^; Run, which just played on the radio now (w00t, love new music, as long as it’s not Beastie Boys or … that other rap/rock group), and Spitting Games, of which the music video is on Launch.

I want Snow Patrol’s album, too. :b I want lots of music … and earlier this year, around January February, I was thinking that there was so little music that I wanted, and that it was sad, but I guess I’d just have to make do with the music I had … or go buy 60s music in CD form. (Mum has lots of 60s music, but it’s in vinyl form.)

*blink* Okay. The entry subject, right. This entry was gonna be about how while LJ was slow and all that last week, was always up whenever I wanted to access it. :b How weird. Today LJ was all nice (or, so far it has been), and today the first time I tried to go to I got a Cannot Find Server message. Ah well. I don’t know which one I’d rather have. I think LJ, but I’m kind of used to LJ being down. I don’t know why. I’ve never really had my website unaccessible for so long like this. Except when Endore went out of business. But whatever. I have a headache now. The kind that starts from my eyes. So now I’m done.

new project/site

Just because I like creating new projects online and never really getting anywhere with them:

LJ graphics shtuff, a page for all my (old) graphics I made for Livejournal

Only the index page works. I haven’t made the layouts page or credit page. I really don’t care all that much about credit. :b But I needed a third link for the lj layout, so yeah. It’s very very … incomplete. Haha.

See, I was bored a day or two ago because ev_icons and (especially) ev_layouts were running kind of slow, so I started making this header because I’d just saved a bunch of new Amy Lee images. I finished it tonight, but I’m not really one to post in communities, and I’d been thinking about making something for all the old stuff I make. I didn’t want a photobucket gallery ’cause I knew people could hotlink it and my allotted bandwidth would run out. :b So geocities came to mind and yeah. There ya go.

there’s got to be another way

Hah, I just realized there’s this option to have people registered before they can comment … and that I had it marked “yes” ^^;; I don’t really know how I’d have people register. How did I register in this thing? I forgot. Uhh … too lazy to go find out.

Yesterday I watched Mean Girls. Mum thinks it was a copy of some executive’s video, and not a pirate, ’cause it was bad quality, but in a good way. Meaning, it wasn’t slanted, and there weren’t shadows of people walking across. ^^;; (unlike Shrek, which we watched Saturday.) It was just fuzzzzy and there was an annoying crackle in the background, which I managed to partially get rid of (Mum: “There was background noise?” ^^;).

I liked Mean Girls, but it wasn’t as good as the commercials make it out to be … :/ I don’t know if I’d watch it again. But I’d tell people to go see it if they’re interested! (And … I’m not a hypocrite; I wouldn’t have paid theater admission to see it, I wouldn’t have rented it from Blockbuster, and if it weren’t on HBO later I’d go through my whole life without having seen it.)

Shrek was good. Not fantabulously amazing, but if anyone had a DVD or paid for my ticket, I’d see it again. >b

Most of my summer so far, my internet access has been subpar. :( Half the time it’s really really really really really slow and the other half it’s all right. One time when it was slow I tried running a speed test, and my browser sat there for about ten minutes (or more) before the site told me the id thingamabobber had timed out and I should check to make sure I met the requirements of the test (cable or DSL access). O_o

Earlier this year I finally managed to get Launch videos to work on my laptop, but now they don’t work because the internet speed is too slow and the video keeps “buffering” or my connection is broken and I have to click OK to restart the video, but that never works and the window just freezes and I can’t do anything with it.

Also, the host servers I use for (Host Affect) seem to be down quite a bit. I don’t know. They say they have 99.9% uptime (equalling 45 minutes per month of downtime), which means roughly 1.5 minutes downtime every day. A week or two ago I couldn’t get for an hour or so almost every day. I didn’t think the internet was that slow then, either. x_x I dunno.

I have 21 different nail polish colors. Blues, pinks, purples, reds, and shimmery colors. I also have four clear bottles (one’s this Sally Hansens diamond strength thing, one is a plain clear color, one is Cutex Strong Nail with glitter in it, and the last is a topcoat). Right now I like only two or three of the colors. I want new nail polish. ^^;;; Yeah, I’m horrible all right.

Books I want to reread: Sabriel and Lirael, Crown Duel, and the Ender series. I also want to reread The Sandman series. I also have By the River Piedra I Sat and Wept to read. I just have to finish reading Jo’s Boys. Blah. That one is so unlike Little Women … but I won’t get rid of it, because it’s part of the series. ^^;;; I also have to buy Abhorsen before I read Sabriel or Lirael. That came out … a looong time ago … but it didn’t go to paperback for a while, and by the time it did I’d stopped going to the young adult section. :(

I have ten dollars. I want anime posters, Yeah Yeah Yeahs album, Confidential Confessions 4, Abhorsen, and The Time Traveler’s Wife. ^^;; Good luck to me.

bury it

I don’t know what to say. I’m not really playing video games. The one I’m playing the most is The New Tetris, and I play that one about twice a week. I haven’t played OoT since … the last time I played, I dunno when that was, but I got about halfway through the forest temple. I’ve played Link to the Past twice since classes ended. I got through part of the second place … the place where I get the power glove. But then I kept getting hit and I lost the fairy I spent so much time looking for. >_> So I stopped playing.

I kinda sorta finished cleaning out my closet. I should really find another place to put my Barbies so I could put a box where they are, then I could move more stuff to the storage area above, and have more space for clothes.

I don’t have any other place for my Barbies though. I think Auntie G keeps her in the garage. ^^;; We don’t have any space in the garage. Mum just spent the longest time cleaning it out, and it’s still a tight fit. I guess it doesn’t help that one car in there is a van and the other is a car bigger than mine.

I think I want to sell my Dodgers Barbie. I don’t like the Dodgers that much. But I keep thinking, ‘Don’t make money! Give it away!’ Then I think, ‘But who would want to buy a collectible Dodgers Barbie from the Dorothy Brown School?’ Or wherever we donate stuff … I dunno. ^^;;

I want to get rid of some of my manga too. I don’t really feel like giving it away, ’cause I don’t know who really would want to read it, but then I feel bad making money off it when … I don’t know.

I owe Daddy $15 for the hosting I bought. Which really really seems to be down more often than Endore (when they were good), and Endore only guaranteed 99.5% uptime. But then again, I paid $100 for Endore. ^^;; Then $50. I also owe Mum $32. Plus a portion of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, for Daddy for Father’s Day. Then I need to save up $200 more dollars to deposit in my bank account. Then I can start spending again.

I really need a new CD player.

downtime, racing, and cuts

Oi. -.- I can’t stand not being able to see my site. *glares* I don’t know how often or for how long goes down, but it kind of seems like it’s more than the 45 or whatever minutes Host Affect says. :/

But anyway. I don’t know if I misheard W88 or if he was misinformed but Sterling Marlin was in the all-star race last night. I don’t think he finished though. :( Terry Labonte finished 14th. Pooh. I found out last night that he’s won the all-star race twice before, so that was cool. ^_^

Hm. Oh yeah. Here’s the screenshot I took of that lady. :) I’m thinking of watching parts of that movie and seeing if I couldn’t maybe make some mini movie LJ icons. XP
