Same old, same old

Filed under: General — site admin @ 8:47 am

Just another normal day in a somewhat less than normal world.

I’m wearing my new Christmas outfit today. I won’t go into detail here unless requested, I’m not feeling Mary Sueish enough to relate the details of my clothing. I’m not so sure about this button up skirt thing, but I have to admit that it doesn’t look at all bad.

And in other less fashion related news I was silly enough to leave the lights on yesterday and killed the battery. Yes AAA was just a phone call away, but true to form it took them an hour to get to me. That’s an hour in the dark parking lot out in the cold. Although once they did it was very fast to get a jump and get on my way and the man who came was very nice. Mind you he was in a terrible hurry, but so was I, so it all worked out in the end.

For anyone that cares I do have three or four wallpapers in the works and material for at least a dozen more it’s just sitting down to do them. It takes a good hour to do a wallpaper if I’ve got it planned out. I’ve had a few that have taken a record 20 minutes but needless to say that doesn’t happen often. There’s also plenty of material for icons and those do take less time to make but I don’t have much free time during the week anyway. Hopefully I’ll get something done and uploaded by the weekend, maybe even before that since I get out early New Years Eve.

I’m looking to get an update to the quotes page pretty soon. The person who has all the quotes right now is scheduled to give them to me soon. That’s a couple of hours typing and copy/pasting but considering the quotes page hasn’t seen an update in a couple of months I won’t mind taking the time.

I also need new Mediocre Magical Items. So if anyone has any ideas please send them to me or leave a comment. They don’t have to be great, that’s why they’re called mediocre!

Days off=Days Updating

Filed under: General — site admin @ 1:10 pm

I know you won’t believe this but I actually updated the wallpaper over at The SunTemple. It’s only one, but it means that I’ve managed to get back into the swing of making the damn things. It can be found in the Final Fantasy section. Other than that there are seven new life journal icons to be found, one in the Lord of the Rings section, three in the Final Fantasy section, and three in the general misc section.

Yes, Paine is my new favorite character and I will hopefully be making a whole bunch of Final Fantasy X2 wallpapers. I’m still unsure about the actual game but the artwork is very pretty and Paine is damn sexy.

Hot Soup Returns

Winter is back.
I missed it, when did that happen? Lethal Doses is still AWOL though…

Two day long update

Filed under: General — site admin @ 12:44 pm

I actually updated last night too, but I forgot to post about it.
At any rate, head on over to The SunTemple and check out a slightly new layout, a new fanfic page with six, count’em six fics up, and nine new live journal icons. Hopefully now the pages will load faster, although there will still be a long load time on some of the live journal pages. I may have to split those up again soon.

Oh, and in other good news, Giovanna over at Empty Movement has put up the old scripts from the Utena Encyclopedia. It’s nice that they’re finally back online since they’re such a great resource.

Although, the Image Cafe has closed its doors. It’s sad since that’s where I got a lot of my pictures that I used in my wallpapers. I intend to keep the link up on my page as long as there is a place holder for it on the web. Credit where credit is due, I say.

I’ve also managed to crash Thorongil twice already. Stable OS my bum. I maintain my belief that the only stable OS is Linux and I’m not l33t enough to use it.

But there is pie. Yum! And lots and lots of leftover ham. Mmmm Lunch.

mmmm food

Yes, a very Happy Yule to all. It wasn’t a big Christmas this year, but we all got everything we wanted. I got my Utena DVDs! YAY!
However, I don’t have any Utena icons to celebrate, instead I have four Lord of the Rings, and two angels over at The SunTemple.

Now, it’s nap time.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Eight new icons over at The SunTemple. Now go and enjoy your presents.

Ok, so I lied, no icons last night

Filed under: General — site admin @ 10:54 am

I had a rather bad night, but thanks to my dearheart I’m feeling much better today.
Needless to say I didn’t get around to any icon making or updating, or most anything else for that matter, although I did name my new computer.
Thorongil is now up and running. 100 points to anyone who can tell me what it means and 50 points of anyone can tell me where its from.

I discovered that I do get out early today, so I plan to go home and be creative.
Hopefully there will be new icons made, old icons uploaded, a fanfic page made, and 2 chapters of Utena fanfic, Shadowgate, and one old H.O.T fic uploaded for all to see. Of course, the fanfic page will have to contain a warning/splash page since a lot of my stuff could be rated R - NC 17 for sexual content. *evil grin*

Happy Holidays to all!

Return of the King

Filed under: General — site admin @ 8:45 am

That was a great movie! Of course there were bits missing and I’m wondering how many of those bits will show up in the extended version. There were several bits that were added but hey, all in all, great movie.
Great set of movies.
Makes me want to go back and read the book again.

I was very very happy about several things that survived. Including Eowyn’s line as she fought the Witch King of Angmar. Best line in the whole movie I think.

Of course these movies have already spawned hordes of bad fanfiction and I shudder to think how much more bad fanfiction is going to appear now that the third movie is out. I shudder to think about the things that the Mary Sues will do.

Luckily I watch some Mary Sue Lists so I’ll be able to keep updated on the latest from the Pit of Voles.

I’m rather inspired to write some really random fanfiction about the people who live in Minis Tirith, or some random elves who lived in Rivendell, or perhaps even some of the ordinary elves in Mirkwood.

Hmmmm. Could be fun.

Sushi good

Filed under: General — site admin @ 1:50 pm

I’ve been debating for a long time whether or not to get to Stop & Shop sushi. The desire won out today and I bought some on my lunch hour.
It’s not fantastic, but it’s pretty darn good.

It leads me to the following equation.

Sushi + Godiva Chocolate + Sobe: Zen = Yummy lunch for Shelly
