I should come join you sometime XD
My new fanfic got 4 reviews! Four reviews for one short chapter in a series I've never written for previously! I'm so happy I could SCREAM! And I would, but then my mom would want to know what was going on. So I'll settle for rejoicing through forum posts...

Strangely enough, though, fanfiction.net hasn't sent out any of the alert emails...They probably died again too. And is it just me, or is deviantart dying too? I can't seem to access much of anything on there...

Limewire officially sucks. I search for one song, And get like a whole bunch others from the same artist, But no the one im looking for . I tried looking for it on Soulseek, but Bupkis .... No results.... I want my KorN songs sad.gif .... Any one got ideas for a song search engine?

Finally back from Jersey...that was a nightmare. Apparently my aunt sent my dad money to give me, but he forgot to tell me...yet he told everyone else in the family that they got money so now i look like a liar. Great. dry.gif

And my sis is being stupid...first off she's whining about how sick she feels...and now she is going out and won't tell me where. Yet whenever i leave the house and not tell her where im going, i get yelled at by her and my dad. And we're the same age....why does she get exceptions huh.gif

-hmm...i kinda wish i had something to do tonite
-i guess i could catch up on all of the books i've been meaning to read...

dry.gif Why can't I ever get hit on by even mildly charming guys?

"I have, like, $200 worth of liquor in the back of my truck." isn't much of a turn-on.


(It's not as creepy as it sounds, considering I've known the guy for a few years. Had some classes with him/danced once with him at prom, etc. Still. Not charming.)

People are still referring to Tombow as 'he'? laugh.gif

Look under "other information"

And?

...It says Tombow is a male so people are right in referring to it as "he."

It says Ailuro and edsgirl are also male. That little box doesn't mean a whole lot.

Crap, I'm gonna have to rethink ordering powerdirector. The trial version is turning out to suck. I feel like I have no control over the tiny details of the video, and that's one thing I want.

What's the difference between Sony vegas Movie Studio and regular Vegas (+ 7.0). Aside from the insane price difference?

Just... proffessionalism?

Still, Vegas looks like the best deal out there, but it's rumored to be complicated and hard to figure out at first. I'm wary. Even photoshop confuses the heck out of me.

I am tired.

My parents were already home by the time my sister and I got back from the Post Office this morning, so we each grabbed a bun for breakfast and were off to San Diego soon after, just as my aunt and her family got here. So just as we got onto the freeway ramp, we saw an unmoving mass of cars up ahead and freaked out. My dad made my sister call our aunt (who was riding in cousin Kevin's car) to negotiate alternate routes. Kevin was ahead, so he chose to get off the freeway and take some side streets to get back on the freeway at a different point, hopefully past the locked section. All the while, my dad was like, "What is he doing? Why's he going back?! Just take the other freeway!!" And my mom was like, "Let him take whatever route he wants! There's no point in arguing about it while you're driving, since we don't have to follow him!"

My dad was so sure Kevin was wrong, it was quite funny to find that Kevin was actually right. tongue.gif

Though the ride was relatively traffic-free, I sat on the side where the sun was, and that made me cranky. sad.gif

So my cousin bought a house with his brother out in the middle of nowhere. It's part of a brand new community among brand new communities on some hills overlooking the ocean--and get this: the streets aren't on the maps yet. So all we have to go on are the directions that my cousin gave us. But lo and behold! A person in the corner waving a giant arrow with the name of my cousin's "community" on it! Funny thing is, no one noticed the giant blue arrow until my sister pointed at it, saying, "Look! Giant arrow!" Another ways, and another arrow! Mighty handy, that was. It helped us get to the house before Kevin did (who got lost among the nearly-identical houses on the winding streets), which granted my dad some bit of satisfaction, we (my sister and I, that is) think.

Does every new, unfurnished house feel like a maze? Because that's what it felt like. And yes, the house was unfurnished, but the parents checked and found that today was an auspicious/lucky/good day to celebrate the new-house purchase, so we partied (sort of) in a virtually empty house. It was fun exploring, though. Lots of windows. Lots of bathrooms. Found a gigantic (to the point that it feels like a waste of good space) bathroom, with a walk-in closet (another waste of space--it's about the size of the smallest bedroom). Actually, we walked outside and noticed a window and an attic-like space above the garage that seemingly cannot be accessed. So we did some investigating and found a little section of the wall in the walk-in closet that was nailed shut and can probably be open once the offending nail is removed, so...

We had no tools with us, so we couldn't do anything about it. sad.gif

My sister had brought her skateboard along, but while another cousin was on it, he fell off and skinned his elbow on his way down the hill. Ouch. The band-aids my mom brought for my sister came in handy.

I have so much more to tell, but I'm feeling lazy, so meh. More on it tomorrow, maybe.

Yeah, houses have a tendency to do that, but I think the primary reason is because it's your first time there, and it takes a little look-see to get used to the layout (then again, some houses have really bad layouts nowadays).

My sister's generally pretty cautious when it comes to skateboarding. (Probably even more so now, after what happened to my cousin XD) I don't think she's had a serious fall...then again, she's always just cruised around on flat ground.

- I want to bring some books to read, but I have no room!

Gaaaahhh!!! D:

I am tired. [Part 2]

So yesterday. After we've thoroughly explored the house and grounds, we lounged on the floor of the "family room" and realized we had come unprepared. My cousin (the one with the new house) had his girlfriend's (the one whom no one likes) TV (the one that's probably going into her room, since she'll probably be living in the house even though she backed out of buying it with my cousin) in his truck, so we were hoping to watch some basic television, but alas! No reception. This wouldn't have been a problem if someone had brought a Playstation, but who would've guessed that there'd be a TV? We didn't even have a deck of cards~

While we were wallowing in our boredom, I desperately pleaded with my sister to play rock-paper-scissors with me, but she wouldn't, saying something about how desperate that would make us look. >_> Anywho, we were all pretty much ready to leave when another cousin suggested that we open the gift that the new-house cousin got from his friends. He unwrapped it, and behold! A poker set. With cards.

-__-

Well. My brother tried to cartwheel in the family room, while Kevin (remember him? a cousin) coached him. It was hilarious. laugh.gif

And my sister thought playing rock-paper-scissors was desperate. laugh.gif

As my dad was driving, he suggested that we drop by Vietnam Town along the way, mostly so that the elderly aunt that rode with us would get to see it. It was a situation that cannot be protested, as much as I wanted to. Anyway. We ended up in the parking lot of a supermarket that had statues of Confucious and his disciples arrayed around some sort of mini-shrine. It was pretty neat, actually, except that all the statues had all their weak points (fingers/hands, beards, etc) broken off. That disgusted me and made me even crankier. and I just wanted to go hooooome~

We did eventually get home. I was starving. There was no food. We had to wait until my dad finished watching his TV program before we drove to this local noodle place and had pho.

So that was yesterday.

No plans for today, except to go grocery shopping with my parents at some supermarket that my mom's discovered and I've never visited. My sister's still not awake yet, so we'll probably ditch her. tongue.gif

Sooo, we're going to a waterpark/hotel for new years. Me, the siblings and the cousin-trio.

I'd really like to wear this swimsuit that I haven't had a chance to properly use in the year and a half I've had it. (I've done water activities, but mostly in the muddy river where I wore an old crappy suit and trunks) However, it's a two-piece and Big Sis has it in her head that I'll flash everyone when I go down the waterslide. (That it'll come off or something) I get the feeling this is just a way she has of making me feel like a whore for not wearing clothes that are properly modest. (Like her ever-so subtle tactic of referring to my tank top as "an undershirt- I mean, lingerie.") dry.gif

I've already spent the past few years getting over the guilt-tactics of mormon sunday school and realizing that I'm not a dirty slut because of the things they told me were unnatural and unholy. I'd rather not have them re-pounded into me by a newly zealous sister who's just looking for an excuse to control me like she's always liked to do.

*sigh*

I had a really fun happy New Year. The water park was awesome, even when I had to hobble on my massively painful toe (ingrown nail.) Of course as with all events, my younger sister had to become difficult and decide to not enjoy it and be crabby for no reason about twenty minutes into it, maintaining this for the rest of the night up until midnight when she finally snapped out of it and all she wanted to do was get out and 'party', while I became crabby and just wanted to sleep.

They had a slide called the hurricane, which we named the 'toilet bowl', because that's pretty much what it shoots you into; a gigantic swirling bowl, that finally dumps you down the bottom hole into a small pool. Fun stuff, though I almost came out head first a few times. I did wipe out on the tube slide; started going backwards, then fell off my tube completely.



I'm still upset right now, for separate reasons entirely, and I kind of wish I wasn't, since I had a great time and I'm grateful to bro and sis for planning this for all of us.


So, for my graduation/birthday, big sister and brother got me a really great digital camera. It was one of the best things ever, and as you all know, I got pretty good use out of it. Less than a month after I got it, sis called me and told me they had the same model, but upgraded, right after they'd gotten the camera for me. And since costco has such a great return policy, I could just return it and trade for the new camera, which was 'exactly the same, but with better resolution'.

They were the ones who bought it, so I waited for them to get back, right now which is a half a year later, and true to their word, costco does have a great return policy. They were able to return the old camera with no hassle, and buy the new one, which also happened to be on sale, so they even made money off the deal.

Except this 'new' camera which is 'exactly the same' sucks. I don't want to be ungateful, still, because... it's still a gift and it's a valuable camera. It looks different; the screen is bigger, which should be a plus, except there's no room for buttons, most of them that I learned to use are gone altogether, and the ones they still do have are smaller, and feel cheaper, like they'd fall off. The picture quality, may just be my negative perception, seems to suck too; it won't take clear pictures unless there's flash on, and flash always makes photos look ugly. And I can't take videos or audio, and I can't switch the camera mode with outer buttons anymore; it all has to be done through some onscreen menu. It won't even play the videos that are already on the memory card. My little sister needs those for a school project. It may be stupid of me, but I just want my old camera back. I loved that thing. Except that's impossible because they stopped making them six months ago.

Am I just a brat for wanting my camera that works back?
