opalinesque: (STOMP STOMP STOMP)
Why do the buses on Sunday not start until it's too late for me to get into work in a timely manner :( I mean, I know why, but I reserve the right to whine about it even if mixing up the date in the trip planner and not realizing this until it was too late to change my work schedule was my fault SHUT UP ;;

Also, having bad eyesight combined with the microphone the drivers used to announce stops being filled with fail equals BAD. I missed my stop this morning because I couldn't read the sign until we were already going past it and ended up hyperventilating at the poor Starbucks employee who was getting me breakfast. STARBUCKS EMPLOYEE, IF YOU ARE SOMEHOW MAGICALLY READING THIS, you saved my butt and possibly my job by pointing me to the right bus.

In other news... does anyone know tips for faster threading? I can type at around 60-70 wpm, but stick me in a thread and I tag at the pace of a snail with ADHD :/ Part of it is overthinking my responses and hyperventilating way too much (I'M GETTING BETTER ABOUT THAT thank god) but there is also... Huh, actually I think that's it! Maybe I'm not beyond help \o/

AND NOW, a to-do list that everyone else can feel free to ignore/gaze upon in horror at my talent for procrastination.

...when I lay it out like this it my lazy is 20 times more obvious. )

OTAKON GET~!


YOU GUYS. YOU GUYS OH MY GOD IT WAS AMAZING. s-so many people what aaaaaah.

THE CON )

THE PEOPLE )

As fun as it was, I'm kind of glad to be home. I am sore all over from walking and my stupid sexy boots not being broken in all the way, and I am EXHAUSTED. Sleeping in a room with 5 other girls is not conductive to rest. I am sad I don't get to hang with everyone in person anymore, but hey... that's what next year is for >D

[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))

What is audiencing? )
The Three Commandments of Audiencing )
Other things to keep in mind )
Contacting the players )

To sum it up, I leave you with [livejournal.com profile] socchan's words of wisdom:

"As an audience member, my self-imposed guidelines are as follows:
* Offer advice/suggestions when I can
* Mock/heckle when I can't resist
* Don't take over threads/posts (for example, if I notice I'm being too active in a post and replying to just about everyone, I try to cut back)
* Stay out of locked threads/posts unless it's OOC or open to audience heckling; likewise, I am unable to lock posts myself (if a player does it it's okay, though I've yet to see "Locked to Audience" in any form)
* Don't give out spoilers unless a) the character(s) involved are okay with it, b) the character who wants to know can't find out any other way, or c) the character asks anyone who knows including audience/audience directly. Even then I try to avoid direct answers or only hint at them."

That's pretty much it! Remember to use common sense and your communication skills, and have a good time~ ♥

If you've got any suggestions, questions, or would like to point out how I terribly misworded/forgot things (which it is inevitable I have), just leave a comment and I'll make amendments wherever they're needed |D

HAY GUYS

IT TURNS OUT TWISTING YOUR ANKLE AND POSSIBLY SPRAINING/BREAKING IT? REALLY REALLY HURTS :D

but the DBZ cast at camp may be about to take a sudden leap in growth, if all goes well. Specifically, it may be growing in ways that are RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS which more than makes up for my fail ankle 8D 8D 8D 8D 8DDDDD! GUYS HOLD ME

I've been wanting to try using this thing more often for a while now, but... well, I'm lazy and my life is pretty boring (except for when I hit random emo moodswings. I SEE YOU THERE, ANNOYINGLY WHINY LAST POST.) |D;;

And then the friending meme over at [livejournal.com profile] campersfuckoff popped up and I went :( I'd been passive-aggressively whining about "bawwww no one wants to be my friend bawwww" on and off for a while like a champion (WHY DID I NOT GET HIT FOR THAT. I honestly don't realize I'm being irritating like that until like a week later unless someone points it out to me. orz) and came to the sudden realization that DUH. I DON'T USE THIS LJ FOR ANYTHING SINCE I DON'T AUDIENCE ANYMORE... and who wants to friend an unused journal. Hello there, added incentive to post! So... here goes? :D;;

I got my first "Wii is not reading any discs... because it is upside-down" call in forever yesterday! I love those calls; they're invariably older men or women with very good senses of humor ♥ ALL IS WELL IN JOBLAND /o/

I'm also currently on an indie game kick, thanks to someone mentioning the amazing Eversion in [livejournal.com profile] campfuckudie's IRC channel. I watched a few playthroughs of it before deciding I would try playing it myself (and probably run away screaming-- I am a serious wuss when it comes to creepy games), and then got distracted and downloaded about half of the website it was hosted at :D;; I'll probably do reviewish things for those over the next couple of days so that I'll have company while I shiver in the corner going D8 why did I only download the bizarre creepy ones WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.

And of course I was an idiot last night and played one of the creepier games, thinking it was going to be all zen like the other games this guy programmed. OH, WAS I EVER WRONG. Of course, I played this about 30 minutes before I was supposed to go to bed. GOOD JOB SELF. Cue staying up until 2 am and having to resort to extreme measures to get myself to sleep (i-i kept closing my eyes and seeing the terrifying BAD END screen the game had askldfjs). I AM V. V. TIRED so I'm going to go have lunch and take a nap so I don't die later today. WHOO /o/

UPDATE: We just had a meeting that involved playing Jeopardy with technical facts about Nintendo's various systems. I was on Team Spam vs... Team Swine Flu. MY WORKPLACE IS AWESOME YOU GUYS

We lost, btw. They should have listened when I suggested Team Madagascar.
