Nothing like a random friend-remove notification to make you wonder where, how, or what you've done wrong/messed up. Especially when it's someone you thought you were on fairly decent terms with.

Should probably drop her a note, ask what's up, but I think I'll wait a little bit since there's a chance it might sound whiny, accusatory, or something. Because the only thing I can think I've done wrong lately is accidentally call someone else her name in a conversation, which is understandable as sleep deprived as I've been lately.

Ah well. Time to piddle around a bit more and then maybe try for some more sleep. 5 hours of sleep after being up 24 hours is kind of a sucky deal after all.

to get to know you meme;
With summer starting to end for most of us, maybe it's a good chance to give a little "refresher" course to those still lurking around on our LiveJournals. Or perhaps you've added a new gaggle of friends from a recent friending meme going around and you want to get them better or to break the ice? Only rule - answer truthfully, and there's no need to tag unless you want to.

A lot of random info that you probably didn't need to know. )

Anyone want some Jellybeans? I've still got 3 of them left.

Day 5 ~ Six Habits.

1. I bite my nails.
2. When I'm bored/thinking I tend to chew on my tongue
3. I pluck out hair constantly. Just lounging around with a pair of tweezers going away at my chin/face.
4. Not quite so bad now, but I used to do that annoying leg jiggling/toe tapping thing.
5. I tend to pick scabs, when I have them.
6. I tend to poke at sore things. If it stings to bend my finger a certain way, I tend to do it again out of spite just to see.

Same old story )

Oh! Meet my Dalish elf warden, Vel'ai. Who got an icon made just so I could derp around with [livejournal.com profile] obloguy on the dragon_age comm. She's kind of an arse, but I'm fond of her.

Okay, since I am an newb at this stuff and I know some of you are leet, awesome people with lots of real world experience.

How does shipping things work? Because everywhere I look at shipping things overseas it keeps trying to say that even the smallest of packages would cost over $70 to ship? WHAT AM I DONG WRONGGGG? ;A;

I'm asking because my mother got me to set up a "Box of Louisiana"
for the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan auctions, but she's confessed to being worried about international shipping charges. Since the current high bidder is from Malaysia I'm unsure as to how much a box of random junk would actually cost to ship.

PS: Current total of potential money earned for charity? $45. I know it's not much, but it still feels like I'm actually accomplishing something for once.

ICONS FOR JAPAN
my thread here


I'm also offering graphics and fanfiction at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan

Otherwise known a Colleen is going to have no life for the next few weeks what was she thinking?! That aid, it's a super good cause so if you have any cash to spare I'd strongly urge you to offer some support. If not from me then from someone. There' a lot of great people who've made offers at both places and the end results are totally worth the money. I wish I had some money to buy shiny stuff. :(

Look, I'm not sure if there's a nicer way to say this, but I'm just not interested in being your friend anymore.

We had our fun and our good times, but I'm honestly not interested in the same things anymore. Not to mention I'm fairly tired of how painfully one-sided it's felt for the last forever. Please don't contact me on lj or im. I have no intention of answering.

Let's just both move forward and get on with our lives, okay?

Yay meme spam! Sorry about that guys. I just didn't think putting both in the same post was bueno somehow.

I've actually gotten some sleep though. I feel much better and I'm ready to go be productive and climb my mountain of tags.

PS: Crit please? I'll take anything. Even if it's just "Watch your d's and r's!" or something. Just... something! Especially for Serah since she's still such a new muse for me. Advice! Advice! My kingdom for advice!

Day 02 - Your least favorite Final Fantasy game.



I actually like the characters in the game. I've just never really been able to get into the game for some reason. I've at least briefly tried my hand at most of the FF titles in existence and out of them all 7 is the one that I really have no desire to sit down and actually beat.

Give me a remake Square, with pretty new graphics and I'll try to slog my way through to see if the journey is really as awesome as everyone says it is.

First round of [livejournal.com profile] otp20in20 is over and boy was it amazing! So many gorgeous icons and awesome people were involved! With the advent of the second round coming in the near future I'm looking forward to seeing just what's in the future of such a great community!

Not only did I get an awesome participation banner, one of my icons placed second in it's theme catagory. I'm shocked and giddy and humbled not only at the people who voted for my icon, but for how awesome the mods are for making such great banners for each and every participant. You can really tell they put a lot of time and effort into their community and the userbase clearly loves them for it. :3 (I know I do.)

Anyways, here's my general participation banner isn't it awesome? Extra love to the mods for re-making it for me because I'm silly.


Star Driver + [livejournal.com profile] lumati = ♥


Isn't it awesome? I've already signed up for round two. General pairings from Nana so that should be interesting and fun.

That said, Hillary and I had this awesome idea of moving her old tv into my room and the main tv into her room. The main room doesn't really have any heat so it's freezing to be out there which is why neither one of us has done any gaming lately.

So with the way it's set up now the PS3 is in my room and the 360 is in hers. So now I can get back to finishing Persona 3, something I've wanted to do for a while now. Cheers!

As the picture says, I'm going through and doing a friends cut.
Largely it's just to clean up inactive journals, deleted journals that  and journals have already de-friended me; however, I did go through and take off journals that I honestly couldn't recognize and a few people I feel that I have little to nothing in common with anymore.
If you feel that I managed to delete your journal from my f-list by mistake feel free to leave a comment here. I've tried to be careful and double check everything, but I'm only human.

Now to do the same thing with communities. Wish me luck!

[livejournal.com profile] otp20in20
I'll have a post ready soon, but for now I thought I'd go ahead and make a post for this. OTP 20 in 20 sounds pretty fun as far as I'm concerned and I'm even going to attempt to try my hand at it. Wit probably some rather wonky results since I haven't done anything that requires fancy textures and text in forever, but it could be fun.

My claim is for the overall pairings of Star Driver. So that'll be pretty interesting.

Took forever, but new mood theme is up. Still not 100% happy with it, but when am I ever?  I'll work on updating my icons and possibly yet another layout after I've had some sleep.

That's 5 episodes of Shiki I've sat through now Mia, don't think I'm letting you out on your promise. Man, this show totally isn't one of my preferred genres at all. It's not bad, just not the sort of thing I typically enjoy watching. The mystery to it's actually pretty cool so far. Guess that's to be expected from a Noitamina, right?

Goodnight livejournal.... zzzz

AKHJLFADSFJ [livejournal.com profile] chosondragon I totally don't deserve these icons. Not that I'd ever turn them down. I like free stuff, you know? So fussing over my icons shall commence shortly.

Anyone got tips on finding new mood themes? I lost all the ones I had when my hard drive melted.

Also, roomie bought Supernatural season 1 for like 10 bucks today. Rejoice Mia soon I won't be completely clueless when you mention the series anymore. Just... mostly clueless. How many seasons are there of this show? Fuck.

oo1. comment to this and I will give you 3 fictional fandom characters.
oo2. decide of the 3 whom you would marry, do, and dump.
oo3. post this meme to your journal with your answers (pictures optional).
This is so awkward )

I've had the same layout/icons for a while now and it really felt like it was time for a change.

My layout is all new and sparkly clean. I wanted something light/bright after how dark the last one was. It's a nice change of pace, you know?

I've... put off the meme for a while now, but I guess I should actually see something through for once. So I'll go ahead and at least attempt to get back on track. I'm not doing all 14 days at once though, that'd be silly. So I'll just do day 2 for now and call it good.

Day 2 - One of your Favorite anime you’ve watched so far

Favorite anime out of everything I've ever watched ever? You don't want much from me, do you meme?

See, I find it nearly impossible to answer this question because I'm really more of a "which genre am I in the mood for?" type person. So my favorite depends on my mood and which genre I want to watch at that moment in time.

So ultimately to answer this question I looked at my still rather incomplete MAL anime list and went "Which one of these series would I watch over every other series on that list?" and that's how I came up with the answer.




Record of Lodoss War OVA

This is probably one of the first if not the first anime that I ever watched in it's entirety. After all, back in the day my parents didn't approve of anything animated that came from Japan and since I was a youngester it was harder to get around them to watch things. (my internet access wasn't so great then. Young people these days have it so easy!)

Slight cut for my nostalgia and stories of my childhood )

Anyways, onto the anime itself now that my nostalgia is out of the way. Record of Lodoss War is, ironically, based off of someone's DnD (or a game like it) campaign. So it's actually got a pretty typical party set up. You've got the young adventurer Parn who's a total green horn but has a good heart. The old, grumpy dwarf axeman who's really a softy if you can find the right spot. The well meaning cleric, the wizard/sorcerer who wants to fully master his craft, and the hot elf chic who's good with a rapier and can summon nature spirits too. The characters are enjoyable, there's not a single one of them that I dislike. The minor characters can be pretty amazing as well even some of the villains aren't bad. The plot's pretty standard for a campaign I suppose. It's got evil kings trying to conquer and unify areas of land, secret sects who want to revive ancient goddesses of destruction, and a rogue witch from an ancient civilization who watches over everything and moves the characters around like their pawns on her cheeseboard.

Otherwise known as it's bloody fantastic and you should all watch it. Not Chronicles of the Heroic knight, that's a totally different series and mutilates some of the characters. Not Crystania either, that's another unfortunate spin off.

So now onto finding a new mood theme and updating my icons. :D
