Let's start with Livejournal and their new release. Now don't get me wrong, there are things I like about this change! However, a few good changes (that are implemented fairly poorly) don't outweigh the plenty of bad changes that have been made.

Subject lines aren't frivolous trappings. They're at the heart of a lot of things in how LJ is used by a lot of people. Comment pages that are so clunky that some people can't even load pages to say anything!

The shortcut keys are nice. I like ctrl left and ctrl right to go through pages! It's handy! I like the icon browsing too, but it should be optional. Loading 100+ full sized icon is a killer for people with slower connections or older computers. Sure mine can handle it, but there are those that can't.

And to top it all off? Those stupid brothers of mine at all the frosted animal cookies that mum bought for me special, because we'd been talking about them the other day. :( Their excuse was the bag was "already half empty", but even little kids know those bags are always half full of air when you buy them!

Combine this with the fact that I could be stuck with this dying piece of junk laptop for several more months and I just want to break down and cry. I hate crying, but between my hormones and everything else it's so hard not to right now. :(

Oh right. Importing my personal stuff over to DW. I just want a backup if nothing else. http://uninvited.dreamwidth.org/

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.

Man I'm so tired right now it's not even funny. 4 hour or so of sleep and I apparently don't get along it would seem. Trying to stay up for at least a couple more hours because my sleep schedule's gotten all fucked up again.

What else...

My youngest sister has been in the hospital since about noon Tuesday, doctor's still aren't sure what's going on there but currently they're pretty sure it's rheumatic fever or something combined with like four other things. Poor baby. They're having a heck of a time keeping her temperature below 102 degrees right now, she's apparently requiring entirely too much medication for it to work properly. I wonder if maybe it's a genetic thing since I require a ton of meds too. Take that step-dad who wrote it off as me requiring more for body mass!

Other than that um... Got accepted at [livejournal.com profile] witchesreign. It's a little weird playing Original Universe Rinoa again, but so far I'm enjoying myself. We're ignoring the fact that the game only started this morning.

[livejournal.com profile] sanqtified is coming along nicely. Except... two weeks later and I still haven't done the settings page and I know damned well if I don't do it, it won't get done. Also our first batch of reserves expire at midnight tonight and I haven't even started my app. Which is pretty sad that the "main" mod (so to speak) for the damned game hasn't apped yet.

Also? That two dollars for a year small bundle for normal accounts? Is pretty amazing when you can resize it to lasting a smaller time with more icons. $2 to bump an account up to 30 icons. I can dig it, yes I can.

Also need to work on my app for [livejournal.com profile] asleeptodream since it's due... Thursday I think? Their app isn't too stressful though, so I'll just switch things over from Sanq Duo's app to fill it out.

Oh! I'm also working on an OC, possibly for Sanq though she could probably be for anywhere since she's just a high schooler currently.

I've only bothered to color two of them so far, but I've got a full set of black and white bases put up on photobucket. Do you think they're decent enough to post in an icon comm? I've debated with the idea since I made them and wanted an opinion.

I guess that's it for now. Until I think of something else.

I'm almost ashamed to admit what I'm actually watching this season: Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru, B Gata H Kei, and Hakuouki. Okay not ashamed of Hakuouki, but B Gata H Kei? I'm really liking Uraboku though, it's looking to be fluffy boys love but I like the art and the characters are pretty awesome too. Touko is especially cool!

Oh! I've also decided that Makoto from the new Street Fighter was pretty cool. I'm holding of on the urge to derp around on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun with her right now.

I've been struggling with a couple different cavities for a while now. One on each side.

Well, as I'm discovering, it seems one of my fillings is going bad. That or there's a cavity that's developed under it. (Pretty sure it's even discolored the tooth).

Between the original cavity and this new one, it literally felt like something was trying to eat the left side of my face earlier. I took 4 ibuprofen about 30 or so minutes ago and it's dulled somewhat but... not much. On the pain scale it went from about a 9 (I was fighting tears) down to about a 5/6. It's still throbbing, but my face doesn't feel like it's being eaten as much.

Still, if I'm to get any sleep I need something to dull this so I'm going to add a couple tylenol on top for now.  This is hell on your stomach lining though and since it was a while since I've eaten I have to eat again... at 4:47 in the morning. Joy and fun.

Hopefully this should knock it down to at least a 2.... please let this go back down to a 1/2.!

Not having insurance is for the birds. Please, Obama, don't let that health bill be over turned and let it fix some of the dental issues too. Lady knows how much longer I can handle living like this. (Mentally and physically.)

I'm sick and tired of people like you
You think you're clever but you haven't a clue
(what can you do?)

A two watt light bulb is brighter than you
I'm sick and tired of people like you

You want it, you got it
Come take it, it's over here
You want it, you got it
Come take it, is that not clear?
You want it, you got it
Come take it, I'll do it for you
You want it, you got it
Come take it, just cross the line

The moral of the adventure is this
Take me for granted you are taking the piss
(Who love is this?)

I'd rather wind up with nothing at all
Than take a loser like you through it all

You want it, you got it
Come take it, it's over here
You want it, you got it
Come take it, is that not clear?
You want it, you got it
Come take it, I'll do it for you
You want it, you got it
Come take it, just cross the line

Cross the line

Why loser, why?
Die Loser, die.
