opalinesque: (orz my liiiiiiiife)
Forgot to bring money to work, haven't had anything to eat today except a small bowl of instant oatmeal at 9 am this morning. It is now 1 pm and I am getting very dizzy. THREE MORE HOURS TO GO i hope call flow is light today

...maybe I should try making some of my instant breakfast mix with water, at least it would have stuff in it.

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))

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

Is there anything we can do, doctor?
Jason has never spoken a word.

There is an experimental treatment which
can be used to treat autistic children.

It is, however, very dangerous
and it might not help your son at all.
I'm willing to try it
if it's the only way to get my son cured.
Your son's brain will be hooked
to a helmet which uses electric shocks
to stimulate the brain.

It gives your son an impression of virtual reality
which will hopefully help him.
...Okay.
Hook him in.


THIS GAME IS SO CREEPY D: )

That's all of my flailing for now. I hope you enjoyed it :)

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.
