opalinesque: (I am considerably smart~)
I burned myself in a heated (HURR HURR) argument with the coffee maker at work today. ALL I WANTED WAS DELICIOUS CHAI TEA SO I WOULDN'T FALL ASLEEP why you gotta do this to me, baby :'( My hand stings like a motherfucker and apparently I have a mild addiction to the smell of... idk I think it's the numbing stuff in the spray? I'VE SMELLED IT BEFORE IN LIKE LIQUID BANDAGE AND WOUND CLEANER it's kind of sweet. Aloe, maybe? Whatever it is I have been huffing that hand on and off all day like the freak I am |D

In other news, I'm on a huge iconning spree. I feel ~*~ARTY~*~ although I can't really tell if most of them are good, since I generally icon plain, silly things and doing the fancypants ~*~LIGHTING EFFECTS~*~ and ~*~BLENDING LAYERS~*~ is completely foreign to me. As are picking which fonts to use and stuff for TEXT ON ICONS it is like a whole new wooooooorld. WE WILL SEE, I GUESS. damn you, vocaloids fandom! I NEVER WANTED TO ICON BEFORE I MET YOU but now I am lost :'( I'm also finally starting to be able to tell what makes a crop good or not! FUCK YEAH SKILLS THAT WILL ACTUALLY BE USEFUL FOR... iconning for CFUD. Oh, self.

Speaking of icons, TakoLuka is officially my soul animal and this is my soul icon. For the very first time, I feel a connection with my default :') THANK YOU, TAKOLUKA!

So I have discovered the easiest, most delicious cookie recipe ever. That recpie made for what is easily the prettiest and most delicious batch of cookies I have ever made. CAKE MIX IS A WONDERFUL THING, YOU GUYS.

Equally awesome, I have discovered a really neat painting application for the Nintendo DS! It even records the drawing so you can watch how other people paint 8D I wasted no time in getting it on mine and abusing the hell out of it inbetween calls. NO LONGER AM I FORCED TO USE RIDICULOUS AMOUNTS OF POST-IT NOTES FOR MY STUPID DOODLES! I can be productive... or I would be if I knew how to color using no layers or undo tool. I AM SLOWLY LEARNING, THOUGH \o/

...however, instead of using this program to draw something nice, I decided to draw the thing that is currently scaring me out of my wits. THANKS, YUME NIKKI. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I... think I'll upload and post that when it is not 1:30 am and dark and scary out alsdkjfas fffffff

PS MY REPLACEMENT REPLACEMENT HARDDRIVE IS WORKING AFTER A LOT OF SWEARING AND ABOUT 10 MILLION BACKUPS let's hope it doesn't die right outside the 14 day period that I can return it to the store like the other one did. gdit electronics

[livejournal.com profile] penumbrette GET!!1!


Holy shit, I've only been playing her for two days and I already love her to pieces. She's so much more social than 17, and I have a way easier time tossing her at random people than I do with Suki. gdit Suki ilu so much why you gotta be so difficult. ANYWAY here's to more threads with the shadowblob! And also getting the rest of the icons that I'm spawning for her drawn, too. I WANT MOAR ICONS and more importantly the edit and view icon thumbnail functions, but I'm not getting her a paid account until I have enough icons to justify it.

Man, I've been in kind of an artistic mood lately. First Vivian's ubergirly icons, and then I discovered custom lj headers AND NOW HER JOURNAL LOOKS BETTER THAN MINE DOES. Did... no it's still does. But yeah, that and figuring out how to do those little "I also play this character <icon>" boxes like the one that is now gracing all of my journals (except Suki, because I STILL haven't gotten hers in working order 8|) has made my week. It is also the reason I changed my layout IT CANNOT BE INFERIOR TO A RP JOURNAL LAYOUT that is dumb. So it gets to be chibideaths until I get enough time to draw custom graphics for it, too. It still looks better than the way it did, though.

In an related note, figuring out how to take the "powered by Livejournal" and the "designed by xxx" boxes offa these things made me feel badass. LOOK I AM A HACKER WANNABE

also guess how much sleep I've gotten in the past three days. HERE'S A HINT: if you guessed higher than 12 hours, you're wrong. ((spoilers: it's closer to 8. I think. SOMEWHERE AROUND 3-4 HOURS A NIGHT how am I even coherent oh wait I'm probably not. 8D))

Why is it that all my prank calls come one call before the end of the day. WHY. I got stuck with some kid who claimed he was getting his wireless from his uncle who lived next door. I called his bluff and asked to speak with the uncle and make sure we had permission to mess around in there because their router wasn't showing up on the wireless search. I got a very confused, slurring older man on the phone who kept repeating "You have permission" over and over, regardless of what I said. FOLLOW THIS WITH MAKING UP RANDOM NUMBERS FOR THE IP ADDRESS no seriously that conversation was amazing. I got him into ipconfig/all and asked him what his default gateway was... and he tells me that it's 400. Normal format is XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, usually around the range of 192.168.something.something. When I mentioned this, he went NO WAIT IT'S 400.600.200.800 which. just. NO. Does not work like that. I love my job, but those end-of-the-day calls make me want to strangle things... and of course then I have to calm down and be nice to the next person, who actually IS the last call of the day. orz

Even better is getting home to find my pigs had somehow managed to drag the PLASTIC BAG filled with hay partially into their cage and had been chewing on it all day. I'm going to spend the next 24 hours biting my nails and hoping nothing gets stuck on the way out 8( Of course, the little idiots are currently frolicing around in the fresh hay I just gave them. WHY YOU GOTTA DO THIS TO ME, KIDS

On a lighter note: I AM ARTING! /o/ I've been wanting to create a couple of accounts for two veeeeeery very old Pokemon OC's to toss into [livejournal.com profile] pokedressing  for a while, but lack of icons has prevented me from setting that up all the way. I worked on possible iconsets on and off before deciding I hated the way they looked... and then I got the brilliant idea of looking for well-cropped icons in a similar style and ganking the pose/crop for reference. I'm already partly done with that; now I just have to think up a good username for a loli Lugia :D Still need to figure out the not!PB I'll being using for my Mew... I was thinking Suzumiya Haruhi, but she's a little bit too >8D. Ah, well. I'll think of something, eventually.

Oh, right. NOTE TO SELF: GO TO BED EARLY TONIGHT SO YOU CAN PICK BACK UP IN CFUD damn it is hard to be IC when you can't even tell what you're thinking, let alone the character. hurf durf
