Netscape 6.1, Buba-chewed-layout

“How goes the new Netscape, version 6.1?” you ask. Or maybe not. :b

But anyway, yeah, so I’ve kinda got it figured out and fixed the way I want it … It’s so sloooooow! Okay, maybe not that slow. It’s the teensiest bit slower than IE 5.0 (the version I have now). But that’s slow to me! It’s like whoever makes Netscape was copying Microsoft (which is what I accuse them of doing) and thusly magnified the things I dearly dislike about that monopolizing browser. ¬_¬

Although … I can finally view frames and stuff correctly (I think), so I’m happy! :b If you’re wondering, I’m adding this entry with Netscape 4.5, don’t ask why.

Hey, I found out what layout I’m going to make to put up between the Padme and Michelle Branch one! It’s the cover of The Double Life of Pocahontas, illustration by … M-something Lynde … I think. Anyone want to open any bets as to how long it’ll take me to realize I can’t make this layout?

Ooh, ooh, guess what!! Okay, so Buba chewed the cover, I know that, and I cherish the teeth marks, I know that too, but I just found something out. I’m going to leave the teeth marks in on the layout and make a story! Or, at least I’m going to try to.

Obsessed? Yes, I love my piggums. I even love my scar on my right hand, although it was kind of scary when I first got it. I could see into my skin! Not that painful, though … or maybe it was, and my nice mind blocked out the memory. I do remember the horror of having to wash it out myself. I also remember making Buba fly across the room (umm, maybe a couple of feet) because he was latched onto me so hard. Hmm, personal experience if I ever wanted to report on how fiercely male guinea pigs can fight! haha.

Umm, what else? Oyeah, I downloaded that Netscape IM (which is AIM with a different name) because I didn’t want to stress myself out with the “custom download” so it’s just sitting pretty on my hard drive … *sigh* stupid thing. And there are “Free AOL and Unlimited Internet” links and icons and etc. all over. I can’t tell which is more rude, Microsoft or AOL.

that old Christmas feeling

“Yeesh, it feels like Christmas is coming. When I went outside to clean Amidala’s cage, it was sort of cloudy, and cool. Just what you’d feel when the holidays come.”
from JM’s diary, October 5th

^__^ Heehee! I had a feeling of Christmas too! A week ago, I think I was cleaning a pig cage then, too. I had to do Jayjo’s cage, on Monday or something. Spooky. O.o

So what’s the use of Halloween?

“In other words, the true value and importance of Halloween comes not from parading in costumes in front of close friends and family, but from this interchange with strangers, exorcising our fears of strangers, reaffirming our social bond with the people of the neighborhood who we rarely, if ever, see the rest of the year.”
Why bother to save Halloween? ( copy)

:D I wanna go trick-or-treating now. Or come up with a really cool costume and sit outside handing out candy. But … I don’t know, will I have enough courage? I don’t usually sit outside on my porch alone, especially when there are a lot of people out. ^.^; I don’t know why.

Mommy was cleaning out the closets earlier this year, during the summer? She took out the Halloween box, which usually comes out only a few weeks before Halloween, and tossed some stuff out of there. I found my cape Bachan made for me, and she gave me my black tights. Now what to do with these things? I was thinking of a gothic version of Melfina, haha. I don’t really know.

Halloween is on a Wednesday this year. :( Owell. I guess I’ve had enough of weekend Halloweens for a while.

PETA “eat the whales”

I was looking for something through a search engine and I got a lot of sites, none with the exact phrase I was looking for. One of them was Eat the Whales. I’ve never heard of PETA before (or at least I don’t remember hearing of them) so I guess it’s not too shocking, but still, to think that anyone would do that! Seriously, their only pro is that “we could spare more than 24 billion animals a miserable life and hideous death every single year!” Well no duh. one whale = 1200 pigs. O.o If we all started eating cows instead of pigs and chickens and fish even, there’d be less deaths. But that’s obvious! There’s more meat per cow than a fish or pig! These people must know how hard it is to keep the whales off the endangered list!

*mutters* bakas. Why don’t they try and stop those weird things at county fairs or whatever, catching greased pigs and hogtying. Isn’t that slightly torturous? Ooh, I forgot one thing! They’re not Christian, so of course they don’t understand that God gave us the animals for our own (heavily moderated) use. They think we should leave animals alone …

feel bad, layout, Netscape, cats

I don’t know what to say … I’m not feeling good. I was making the December layout for my site. ^.^ Well, it centers around Buba. *sigh* I miss Buba. Maybe that’s why I’m not feeling good. My hands feel dirty. And my face feels dirty.

I got mad at Netscape for the first time, can you believe that? I didn’t get mad when my Stop Pretending layout didn’t quite work. I didn’t get mad when it kept crashing and I had to restart or wait hours to use it again. I didn’t get mad when it wouldn’t load certain pages because it couldn’t load whatever. But when it messed up my Buba layout and wouldn’t compromise, I got pissed off!!!

*weeps* I don’t feel good. I want a new Netscape. But this computer sucks and couldn’t handle it because something is taking up too much space on the 1.8 gig C:drive [it’s over two years old]. I’d need … I forgot … 26 megs of space? Would all my bookmarks disappear? Yes, I’ve never updated anything on my computer, except for the instant messengers, which coincidentally I don’t use at all.

Ho hum, I don’t feel good. Well … I saved my bookmarks somewhere. I saved them months ago, so they’re probably not the same at all. ^.^ I wonder where that disk is. I wonder which disk it is. *goes off to wash hands*

Ahh, I feel much better. The curing abilities of washing one’s hands. o.O Hmm, guess what? I MISSED 08TH MS TEAM! Yuppers. I can’t believe it. I hope I won’t miss DBZ. But that depends on if I can stop writing in nine minutes.

Dusty and Shadow went to the vets today, and yes, Shadow is a boy. *sheepish* Well hey, the lady at the counter couldn’t tell either, and she has eight cats, so hah! We won’t get them back until after 6 tomorrow, or something like that.

I think I’m going to make another layout, to put up between the Padmé and Michelle Branch one, so that I put the Buba one up later, and get tired of it later, and take it down later, preferably sometime after the second week of January, when he died. It’s my dedication layout, or summin, I dunno. Five minutes. I wonder what I’m going to make. Maybe a Gundam Wing layout. ^u^ I dunno.

I guess I ran out of stuff to say … three minutes … I want to make a new layout.
