For the past week or so, we were informed that my Grandma, who's been in Hospice for a few years went into a coma. Last night at about 11:30 p.m. I got a call from my brother who said our family in San Antonio called and said our grandmother would not make it through the night.
I have been using Mozilla Firefox for about a week now. I definitely do not like it. Compared to Internet Explorer, however I still prefer it. My favorite browser is Mozilla. I guess they are calling it a suite now. It just has all the options I like and/or am used to. First I got to have autocomplete for text. I hate having to push the down arrow. That and I want it to only autocomplete addresses that I have manually typed. I prefer the way Mozilla downloads. There were also some other things I miss as well, but can not remember. And of course, I must have my LCARs star trek theme. Unfortunately, Mozilla is being a whore right now. On two computers, it will install sort of. The install seems to be at the end, then it will quit. In the add/remove panel, it says it is installed. However when clicking on it, nothing happens. It is like clicking on a shortcut that goes nowhere. So here I am stuck with Firefox. I need to download the latest beta or alpha. I have never had a problem with either type yet. Maybe that will fix the problem. On strong point of using Firefox is the one-click clear all for people who are concerned about history and such. This was pointed out to me by someone who needed the privacy. Fortunately, I don not; see earlier post.
Also last week when I was going through the computer mess, I managed to get my 2000 machine going with 640x480 16 color resolution so I could log into astrowars. During that short time without a firewall, I picked up a virus. Some kind of spybot, W32.spybot.worm. Some ass was randomly sending it out to IP addresses and got a hit on mine. Very annoying but I easily cleaned it out.
Both machines are working fine now. The documents folder was intact; the benefit from using a different user name each time. I need to download some Visual Basic library to make the astotoolpak work. Plus reinstall all my old programs. But on the plus side, because of this incident, I may get a new 64bit Athlon 64. Then of course I will move to Linux as my main computer. I could go with the 32bit sempron, but I do not really see the point. I would just as soon stay with what I got till the 64bit becomes cheaper.
Also noteworthy, I started back with the dumbbells, after about a week off. Feels great. I take about an hour to do my stuff. Now I need to get in about an hour of aerobic exercises. I was thinking of getting a dancepad for my playstation and working out to DDR, but my playstation is old.
Now that my computer is set up with secure internet and current virus protection, I will post this late. I tried earlier this week, but it did not make it through. Lucky for me I always Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C before I post. I also added a spell check and fixed it to my enforced style.
I kind of had a rough day because of little things. The motherboard in my parents computer is dead. Refer to an earlier post regarding that. So I decided to test out all the components to make sure. Everything but the motherboard was working. I tested everything for the tech support. What I unfortunately choose to do after deciding to fix it was swap out my motherboard with their broken one and put my old MSI k7t pro2-a in mine until the replacement showed up. This is bad because windows 2000 on xp are able to survive all kinds of upgrades except motherboards. When I had everything swapped around I had 2 computers of deadly blue screens. I fired up knoppix on the xp machine and burned the files from after the last backup and was set. Then I was going to reinstall windows XP, but I found a repair option that worked. Not the first one but the second. Unfortunately since I had no Internet, I could not access command line help. But eventually I got the xp up but slow and without internet. Later today I am going to reinstall instead of repairing. It will not be so bad since I downloaded the service pack at my brothers place. Later I did a new install of win2000 on my box on a different hard drive in order to for sure save my "My Documents." This reminds me of why I hate "My Documents." From now on I will have my own folder like it, but of my placement choosing like I used to do. I guess the stability of almost 2 years had to go some time, but I think if I had prepared I would not have had a problem. Luckily I found my hacked USB modem drivers and was able to get internet going. Maybe tomorrow, I will be able to get things going good.
Also my Asian Special Edition Star Trek Season 7 arrived. It is a ripoff. All of the last episodes on the disks cutoff. Kind of pissed about that. They say 100% refund, but I have to pay $10 to ship it back, and it was only worth that. And if I leave negative feedback, this guy leaves retaliatory feedback. Screwed either way. Plus my books are over a month overdue. Pissed about that too. Pissed at ebay right now. Fortunately only out $35.
Heh, and last night I drove over a raccoon. It was running across the 4 lane road and was into the second lane when it turned back towards me and I braked but to late. It went under both right wheels. It was a really big one too. It was like going over a speed bump. I felt a little bad, but it passed quickly.
And then there was the dentist. I lost my phone, and I feel like I have not met deep slept in a week.
I feel so unmotivated, whether it's at work or at home. Not sure why, think it's the stress from my job. Been feeling rather down of taking up those extra duties and not getting rewarded. I wonder, should I leave the company or should I continue with what I am doing and secretly pray that they will somehow notice my contribution and re-think about my remuneration package. Hai, am I being too calculative or am I just being greedy? Practical? Materialistic?
I hate to blog about my work, cos I find it uninterestingly boring. That's how much I hate my job. I HATE IT!!!!!
HATE IT like I hate......? shit, I don't hate anything?!??!?! *#$(#*&$()@
urgh. well....let's see, what have I been doing these few weeks?
PLAYING DAIBLO!!!!!! yeeeee..no life, some of you might say. But it is a rather addictive game and especially when you are playing in a team, everything seeemed more fun and enjoyable.
what else? rollerbladed on Sunday....was at Bishan Park, breezy late afternoon with pet lovers gathering around the Animal Park to let their pets mingle and run wild in the fields.
the pathways were rather badly littered with broken branches and stones, dangerous for rollerbladers. As well as many mini pot-holes, slopes and humps! Supa challenging Lor. Have to try to empower my blading strides with extra leg muscles, in order to keep moving as gracefully as possible.
One bad move and you will see me lying on all fours, like one of the golden retrievers from the park.
went to catch "ALFIE"...oooooo.. i love JUDE, he's so drooooolable, goodness...the way he smiles was so charrrmmmmmmiing. He plays this adorable smooth talker, with a way of getting women to surrender to him. I think he doesn't need to talk to me loh, he just smiles and I will come crawling to him.....*still drooooling* well, in the end he ended with nobody...
went to INTRO bar at the Swissotel, coool place with a nice ambience and soft music playing the background. All's well and nice till we changed seats and I was seated directly in front of this pair of extremely disgusting and pukable couple. VERY UGLY TOO.....*shivers*
Both were in late 30s, I think. Though I find the woman looks older than the guy. And all throughout the evening, they were all over each other. The woman was the horny one, everytime the guy turn to look at something else, she will make him turn his face towards her . Yeeee.....how to stare at such an ugly creature!!!!! pui pui pui.....And her dressing was oddly put together, with a black top with gold linings, BABY-BLUE, i repeat, BABY-BLUE MINI skirt and black stockings?!?!?!?!??! *faint*
*speechless* cos puking at the thought of it.
having a long weekend this week, but nothing to do leh, anyone has any plans???? ring me up!
I just saw Polar Express. It was actually really, really, really good! I, at first, didn't think I'd like it, because looked to cutesy for me, and it was. However, the 3-D was just too sweet!
Okay, enough of that. Another survey from Bzoink. Whoo! *SARCASMSARCASM* . . I've decided to stop with changing the color for survey and quiz results. It's just too distracting, not to mention it clashes like hell. Link are good in blue, whole sentences aren't.

Well today was kinda boring.. I had to go to school, and stuff. Then after school, I was supposed to have a friend over and then she didn't come to the bus stop like she was supposed to. So I got pissed off, and it was extremely cold so I walked home by myself and then I was just about to turn onto my street, and lo and behold... Her mom pulls over and she get's out, and is like "HILARY!" and I was like oh my god!!! I was so happy. And then we got to my house, and I couldn't feel my face because it was frozen from walking home.. and then we watched Billy Madison.. heh! "t t today juniour!" it was hilarious.. But then........... I broke my dads laptop.. Well, I accidently broke a key off the keyboard, and he cant get it back on and I feel soo bad... and I mean.. I feel bad! I didn't mean to.. I don't know what happened. I was just typing and I guess my fingernail got caught under the key and it popped out and I couldn't get it back in and neither can my dad.. I think it's one of those laptops when you take out one key you have to replace the whole keyboard.. I feel soo bad I can't get over it.. and I feel sick because I feel bad.. (Lol, ive used "I feel sooo bad" so many times in this blog.. but its true).. Ugh.. well that's all I really have to say..
Oooh! I have a new layout, my sexy buddy Adam made it for me. Thankyou Adam! <3 I love you.. soo much. I mean it.
MY DAD FIXED THE LAPTOP.. Oh my god.. I don't feel sick anymore. It was pure LUCK! Someone must really like him.. =D I am soo happy.. Thank god! *is now happy as can be*
|I had a great time . We did all sorts of great stuff. Like Mandy has a dvd video camera and we recorder fun stuff, like playing guesstures(just a round or two ). We did connfesionals were I told how Rites of Spring deserves a lot of the credit for the emo movement. And then we pulled name and talked about that person to the camera, then watched it. It was neat to have a record of all of that....cause were making a movie. Then we did some other games and crap...I can't really remember a big part of it...oh yeah. We looked at all the dresses at the Golden Globes....the people all looked so ugly! We wern't impressed with our so called trend setters and fashion gurus. Mandy liked her stuffed doggy thing I got her, it was so cute. We really jus messed around all night now that I think about it. Alyssa was surprised last night, I laughed instead of giggled. I giggle...not sure why...BUT I laughed! So we all ended up in one giant mess on the big couch and people ended up getting hurt and whatever happens in a giant tangle of teenagers. After that we kinda slept...woke up and ate chips and dip for breakfast. Then...I had to go to Jewel w/my mom and bough a tremendous amount of food. Now I'm here...rambling. I'll probably tell individual stories from the party post at a time...so much happens to tell about...eh....so fun.|
So, so bored ...like usual. Damn Mondays, they stink.
...Today I went to all my classes, got some of my dreaded work finished! Go me, or something. I came home to finding my mother had finished the ice cream she had bought for me ...and I was looking forward to it all day, so she's buying me more tomorrow after she gets off work ...or so she says. I guess she feels guilty.
Okay, now ...about a half hour ago, Zander said he had to switch computers, and he still isn't back! ARGH! The only other thing I was looking forward to ...gone. Pfft, what a dumb day it's been for me, nothing is working out. I even have a headache ...typical. Maybe tomorrow will be better. Let's all hope.
Life is beautiful, thank you ...my twilight. -The Pillows
I am in a very weird mood right now. I think it's because I'm so tired. Or maybe because Chibi keeps flooding screens (LOL!). I don't know. I think I just need to do something.
My Karasu plushie is never coming! **cries** Yukiko couldn't find one! They don't make them anymore because the show is so damn old! That means I have to make my own! Noo! I'm too . . . lazy to do that. I don't want to deal with cloth layer after cloth layer! *SIGH* Oh well. I hope my mom is as good at sewing as she says she is. At least she sews fast, not like Duck, who sews like a grannie. x_____x
Two more weeks until I get to go on an airplane to Los Angeles! Whoo! This week I have to buy my dress for the wedding. In case I didn't mention (I don't think I did), my cousin is getting married. Yay, Melissa! ^____^ I think my little brother might be the ring-bearer. O_O I'm glad I don't get to be the flower girl or anything this time. No one ain't filmin' my ugly face! *hides*
. . . . Okay, that's enough. I'll come back when I'm . . . as sane as I can get, and when I have something of worth to say, er, write.
I wanted to do something different, and not fill in the survey like a normal person does. You'll see . . .

So, last night was pretty okay. I went over to my friend, Kristie's house. We went and saw "Meet The Fockers." It wasn't nearly as good as the first one, and I wouldn't see it again. I wanted to go see "White Noise," but she had already seen it last weekend when she had a birthday party. So anyways ...we watched my Invader Zim DVDs, which was fun, and played Twisted Metal: Black and some Mortal Combat game. Though, we played Twisted Metal most of the night, that's pretty much the game series me and her play the most together. So ...I got home around five today and just took a shower and came on the computer, downloaded a few songs, and now, listening to music and waiting for Zander to come online. Hopefully school tomorrow will go by okay. I'm definitely not looking forward to waking up in the morning.
You're a little bit shy, a little too quiet. You're the mixed up girl that everybody leaves behind
|Well. In like 15 minutes I will go to Mandy's for her B-day party. It will be great...all 'The Nine' together. Guess what! I totally am manic right now...the great escape from deppresion. I'm in love. The girl....well, I've always loved her. Listen to First Day of my Life by Bright Eyes. Its somethin like that i think. No. Not really, but still listen to that song. But really, i don't even want to, and It's not that silly high school love....true love. haha. Nah. But there are feelings. Mutual or not...there are feelings...|
I just woke up an hour and a half ago, and im sooo tired.. Im talking to Adam and a few friends on my MSN and im some other sites, and listening to my stereo almost on full blast, and Im soo going to get a major headache in the next couple of minutes... Boring eh? Well atleast Adam isn't boring... But oh well.. I have a friend coming over today (the same guy who came over the other day) at 4:00.. And then my cousin is coming over and bringing her baby, so I cant wait. I <3 that baby sooo much. Her name is Hannah.. Well, Ill write in here later..
Ok.. Well here's what else happened. Me and my guy friend were watching a movie, he stayed for dinner, and then we were fooling around and he was poking me and stuff, and then he pulls me over to him and bites my neck! I was like.. 'bitings hot, but that hurt'.. and I had a major red mark. And then I went to my friend Julie's because we had to finish a project. My mom thought that I was lieing to her and I was like "Dude, im not lieing to you" and yeah.. I couldn't believe me that she let me out on a Sunday night, and then I got home at 10:30.. So thats all that really happened.. Fun fun.. *rolls eyes*
Didnt really need a quiz to know this, really i just wanted to test the quiz. I would have rated Hardcore much higher though, and the rest after indie rock be zero. I admit...some of the questions I just put an answer...explaining the industrial and stuff being that high. What a lousy quizz.
|Went to the chiropractor, bought a gift for mandy, bought some crap for my project, worked on it with my step-dad for 2 hours, sat on computer, ate pizza, sat on computer again. I hope my mom will just be nice and let me be on here just for the hell of it. She's been like..."Is that work...are you working on your eagle project???" She manages to sound snarky in my mind, whether she really is or not. But it's saturday freakin night, she can give me a break if her mind comprehends that I'm just having fun. What else would I do...read Harry Potter books?! I have some, they were a gift. Are they worth my while...let me know will ya. So I made a new buddy Icon, and background, toyed with my template. I'm still not happy with the icon. I'll get better at that. I think I will download some Blonde Redhead, I think I like them, a lot. It's neat to hear chick lyrics. Well, I might play monopoly with my step-dad, thats our game, it's fun. You might notice we have a good relationship. I think I met him when I was six? My parent divorced when I was four. So they got married and(or because of ) they had two babies. So my family is big. A big bro and sis. Both married. One has a baby, anopther on the way. And I have two little sisters. Yey. They try to make me angry...gah. Little twerps. Off to the Blonde Redhead.|
I just trimmed the dry ends of my hair off. I know a trick it cutting hair straight, too. All you have to do is twist your hair behind you, and then bring it over your shoulder. However, I would only try that for trimming. I've never actually done it while giving myself or anyone else a a totally-new look. I'm never cutting my hair short. Never.
Later on my mom is taking me to Barnes & Noble to use up my gift card. Yay! I love B&N. I could be there for hours, reading. I could live there!
. . . I wish I could drive. It seems everyone is taking or has taken Driver's Ed except for me. Poor, poor me. Cry for me, for I am immobile. XD
Absoloutley nothing happened today..
I got up, went to school, did my video project for English, came home, and learned some CSS... Absoloutley nothing, happened besides that. Except for the fact that my ex is STILL trying to get me back, and yeah.. let's not get into that.
Aint my days just great? I find that I write the same thing over and over again in this journal. And for that, I applogize..
Well ...today was pretty alright. In first period, there was a couple making out outside out portable when I had went in and then at the end of class ...they were still there! I can understand wanting to do that with your lover ...but ...at school??! Besides, it's the middle of winter and today was much colder than it has been lately ...I just don't understand some people.
But ...on to the good news. Me and Zander are getting along fantastically. He's been making me so happy today, my eyes have watered ...such a lovely feeling that I very rarely get. I might get to move into his house this summer, exciting! And with that being said ...I'd have to go to school if I did live there, and I'd want to, I'd get to go with my sweetie! Talk about a win/win situation. Life is going so nicely. I just hope that it doesn't change ..I hope Zander's parents let me live there! Wish me luck, everyone!

Hmm, wanted to make a normal gallery print. But to put it online and make it download easy enough I had to bump down the resolution a lil...hope it looks okay.
I found out what was wrong with my stomach, or, at least, the cause of the pain. I still don't know its origins or how I got to be as bad as I am.
. . . My ass is going to fucking explode. I'm scared. Does "colon-blow" seem fun to you? Funny, yes, of course. Hahaha. Not fun.
Anyway, I made it through the last day of first semester. I had to leave during 8th period because of my cramps, however. Bad cramps. Because of that, I still need to take my science final. I get to do it at home, though. Wow, Miss Murgel must really think I'm trust-worthy. I could easily use the internet for the answers. Heh. Well, I've never cheated, and I won't start. =D
Did I mention I was scared?
