Or click on the B...those are links...you know.
Ally called! ::dance:: I never get to talk to her anymore, we've had to restore to snail mail and I HATE IT! As any girl who's been seperated from her bestist friend on the whole wide planet can tell you, it sucks.
It sucks gravy.
I've been forced to deal with issues on my own. (::ignores the gasps from the audience::) I don't know what's up with her until five days after the fact, rain or snow my...
Anyway...I was glad she called, it gave us some time to catch up on all the latest news from both our sides of the glass.
She needs her `puter back...she needs to move here! ::pout::
Ok, done being a baby now. I'll go away.
What is a Drizzit?
A Drizzit is a falling peice of lit plastic that glows blue and makes a kewl sound.
What you need:
A metal coat hanger. DO NOT USE PLASTIC or paper lined hangers.
At least 300 plastic grocery/store bags.
A peice of cardboard twice as long and wide as the coat hanger.
Someplace to hang it in the open with lots of ventalation.
A dark, outside night type place.
Ok, what you do:
Knot the bags on the bottom of the coat hanger, from one side to the next, when you fill one row, overlap until all the bags are gone. Do lots of bags, and don't be afraid to squeeze `em on till they can't squeeze no more baby.
At night hang the coat hanger from something where it won't touch anything else. Tree, garage, ect.
Put the cardboard under the coat hanger. Make sure it's center.
Light one corner of the bags on fire, and sit back and watch.
When it's all done. (You won't regret it!) put it out with a hose, make sure it's cool, wrap the hanger in the cardboard and throw it all away.
DO NOT touch anything while it's lit...it'll cause major burns. Make sure you stay a good foot to two feet away from it. It won't fly, the drizzits just drip down, but still, you know?
Have fun. :) I promise you'll love them.
I'm not sure what kind of security system it should have yet. (Because, let's face it, you never know what the truth is, especally with the way rumors can start. Take me for example, there are currently four: I'm 11, I'm my mother, I'm a guy named Jim Thompson, and I'm a 70 year old black lesbian eskimo from Ohio. No offense to blacks, lesbians, eskimos or Ohioins. Yell at the people who make this stuff up.)
I was asked by my younger brother who's bored out of his gourd to find him a pen-pal. He's so wanting mail, he's getting MY mail. So, I think it would be a great idea to set up a inter-childcare, or a general pen-pal system for kids.
Hey...everyone loves mail.
Especally me...::puts on her Iwannapostcard face::
Can you believe it? Five! I hate it! I suppose it's what I get for being lazy and not unpacking my jewelry boxes (After living in my house for a year...) but...I'm lazy!
I've lost a frog enternity ring (One with tiny frogs that go all the way around), my peace frog choker (I love them), a Mickey Mouse pendant on a silver chain, (I'm not a fan of Mickey, but he's sitting on the moon with a little star dangle...I loved it.), a butterfly anklet, and a y-cross necklace and I'm bummed.
Damnit, I love my jewelry. I don't wear it often, but all of it means something to me, because most of it was gifts.
::cry, pout, whine:: and I lost it all someplace IN MY HOUSE! Which dosen't seem possibe, because my place isn't that big.
::sigh:: Oh well...oh a happy note! I got my frog charm bracelet all put together! (Yes, I love frogs, how ever did you guess?)
Six charms, and six gem spacers on a cute little silver chain. I love it. I took pictures! You know you want to see...Look!
Ok, sucky picture...I'll get a better one later.
Anyway...there's a frog on a rocking horse, frogs hugging, frogs playing leapfrog, a frog playing a fiddle, a frog on a lilly pad, and a frog on the moon.
It's cute...::hides:: Speaking of frogs! I drew a Nimmo last night.
Yeah yeah..it's not that good, but it was a total blast to draw.
Soooo...I get this phone call today from someone I promised I wouldn't tell anyone about, and he kind of accused me of telling people the thing I wasn't supposed to tell. But I'm not like that, I only told who he told me I could tell.
Make no sense? Don't worry, I can tell after Sunday, and then it'll all make sense. I promise.
So, today I've got web sites to work on. I've put them off for about a week now because of two or three other things I was doing. (One was the `Thon, which I'm STILL kind of tired from.) So, I've got to do them today.
Especally BB.com and Hot Lake, two I can't ignore the way I have...especally since the first is a site I'm kinda well..getting paid for?
Anyway...I'm going to go work. (Since it's nap time.) I'll probably be back to rant later about what didn't work out.
And...on another note...seems everyone likes the layout I have...::giggle:: Ooo..have fun at your concert!
I got her photo today. It looks great! She's going to love it! I'm going to have it framed before I send it. So much to do! I'm getting a head start though. I've got some other good gifts to send her. I hope she likes them! ::giggle::
Cassies bday is coming up, I've got a couple more things to grab for her and then she'll get her box. No, I won't tell you what it is, because she reads this. (Or, other people read this! And I know none of you would tell but...but...you know?)
She needs a great birthday, she's had a rough year.
Now, to think of some good stuff to get Robin before her birthday (Dec. 1st) and Christmas. She needs something WAY good, because she's had a rough year...and she's my mommy and I looove her.
I also got some other of my Ebay things. A candyland trinket box. (Love candy land) and two more frog charms. I need to get them on my bracelet. I love frogs.
::sigh:: Anyway! Off to work on a site...I should be constructive. ::grin::
He not only kept me company ALL weekend, he archived my ENTIRE blogathon fiasco on HIS site.
Now you can read to your hearts content! It's also accessable through the 'Graveyard Boogie' link by clicking on "The Blog" in there.
Thank you James.
Thank you..thank you..thank you...
I like the webring.
Again thanks to my sponsors.
All the blogathon entries will be found by clicking on the 'graveyard boogie' link to the left as soon as I get them up.
All the graveyard stuff is there too.
For your convincence...I live to serve.
Looks like we did really really good. ::pats herself on the back:: I am so proud of you, you.
I agree with Wyndchild. It was kind of sad to watch it go. I got kind of attached to the friends I made.
You know, after talking for someone 24 hours straight, you kinda feel all loney when it's time to say bye. ::giggle::
Makes me want to do it again next year for sure.
I slept 18 hours! ::grin:: I didn't do anything at all yesterday but sleep, and start a reply letter to one Kins sent me.
And watch part of Murder In Small Town X...let me say now how dissapointed I am, and I had the first eps plot all figured out by the first 15 minutes.
Not ego, just good at it. It's why I want the job I want.
Anyway....SOME PEOPLE have already moved all their `Thon stuff to different pages. I'm still a bit groggy and lazy, and my archives don't work right, and I'm lazy. Did I mention that?
I'll have it done by this evening, so those of you who missed it can relive it post by glorious post until the wee-hour end.
At least, it felt like wee hours to me.
The time has come to say goodbye to the Blogathon and all you wonderful supporters and watchers! ::grin::
It's almost sort of sad...but 24 hours was deffinatly enough! ::grin:: I can't handle anymore.
Yeah..weird image? I drew it with chalk and peiced it together in PSP. ::giggle::
Thank you SO much to everyone who sponsored me, weeks ago AND at the last minute, you're all a bunch of
I'll be getting ahold of you with how much I'm stealing soon. After the nap. :) I love you guys!
Cat, for all her trouble, work, and bright ideas to make all this possible!
Thank you to Robin who tried her damnedes to the graveyard thing to work.
Thank you to Jackie for ALL her help, even if you are a wimp. ::Grin:: You can have your phone back.
Thank you SO much to EVERYONE who popped in and out during the 24 hours to say hi, see how I was, keep me company and generally cheer me up when things weren't looking hot. Liz, Cass, Kimmi, Mike, Mike (::giggle::), Persa (Sorry it didn't work hon!), Kis, Butter, Jerry...everyone else if I missed you I'm sorry, and THANK YOU!
A big great big thank you to James especally for keeping my no good, lazy self awake this whole time. Couldn't have done it without you and your 3 AM pokes to see if I was still breathing. I couldn't have, and that's the truth. I woulda thrown myself at the mercy of the Sleep Demons long ago. Blog Buddies right? ::grin:: Keep in touch, Ok?
Thank you for everyone who donated their time, energy and good thoughts into hoping this worked. Sorry it didn't, but I'll try again for you soon.
Although it didn't turn out like I wanted, I still had a damn hellofa fun time. ::grin:: I seriously hope to do it again, and I hope that all of the rest of the `Thonners had great success with your Blogs, and that you all stop by and keep in touch.
I very much enjoyed reading what you had to say.
::hugs ana cookie::
Take care everyone, ya hear? It's been a whole lot of fun. :) Thank you.
Here! A flower for everyone who's stuck by me this last 24 hours!
Wow, it's almost time for this to be all over! I can't say I'm not glad in some ways, I'm beat!
I need a nap something terrible.
But I've had a whole lot of fun, and made some new friends, and did a good deed.
Even if the graveyard thing didn't work out.
That's ok though, I'll try it again someday soon. And maybe if the `Thon comes back around next year, I'll try it again for it then.
I hope that those of you who've watched me during the `Thon will come back now and then to see what else I'm up to. Especally if you like the scary stuff, it's not a one time thing with me. :) It's a hobby!
After I get a nap, I've got a ton of stuff to get back to people and put away from the graveyard thing. Robin's car is still full of stuff (She's going to go get it soon.) and then I have to put THAT away too.
Another link for you before I go away for a bit...here. Enjoy!
I'll be back in a bit with the LAST POST!
Still some of you out there! ::Grin::
Rah to everyone who's made it! Only an hour left to go! ::beam::
::waves her pom poms around tiredly and stares at one as it falls to the ground::
Ahh...Can...uh..someone get that for me?
He's a meanie head.
"Animal Crackers, are they Crackers or Cookies?"
It's simple, they're a cookie.
Why cracker then?
They're named 'crackers' so Childcare providers can claim them on their USDA food program menus more then twice a month and won't get disallowed half their meals and all their snacks for feeding children "dessert" more then twice a week and then have to be visited by the evil Childcare Lunch Ladies.
"Thought you'd just slip that in with those extra hot dogs, didn't you, you bitch?"
I need a new job.
Check that out...first and only curse word in this entire thing.
How very bad of me. Bad Jamie...bad...bad...ba...zzzzz...
hey cinnie, i won the fight with my connection this morning! *woo me* too bad it's as unreliable as it is *pppffftttt* but i do have more time to fight with it on weekends.. 8) anyway, i saw this in one of my elists (a pagan one btw =P *hmph* sorry just still a bit bugged about the recent fiasco on the wars list lol *shrugs*) and thought ohhhh that's cinnie!! gotta send this to her.. you're famous!! lol
i'm glad you've been able to keep at it. woohoo! go cin go!
Just thought I would let you all know that if you are board tonight
(Saturday) there is a girl (Skyte?) whos spending the night in a
graveyard for charity. She doing it from home now because her
batteries went dead, but shes still doing some interesting stuff
(like asking questions of a pendulum and a Quija Board). I know its
not the most facinating thing in the world, but she was nice enough
to give it a try and it is for charity. So if your bored, head over
to : http://www.skyte.blogspot.com/ and post some questions for her
to ask. Good luck and blessings
I thought that was too dang kewl. Thank you all so much for your support and attention. We'll get it to work next year, I promise.
Robin's awake...grumpy grumpy! ::grin::
Was watching Porky pig in a loony toons...
Or maybe Porky wasn't in it...
But there was this lion that ate the ice cream man.
Looked exactly like my moms ex-husband.
I swear it.
4 hours...I can do 4 hours. ::grin::
I'm doing the blog rounds, see who's up...see who's gone...see who's angry. (Alot of angry people out there!)
That's pretty much it. It's hard enough for me to be clever when I'm fully rested. You can just forget about it now.
I love candyland.
I LOVE it! It's the best game they could have ever created. With the little cards and the little men and the cute little board.
I play full contact candy land...we cheat, we fight, we yell, we taunt...it's great fun.
And you thought it was a game for babies.
I've been surfing through blogs, alot have quit, but theres still a good number of us out there, tired, cranky, smelly (Sept for those ones who are doing the chronic shower things.) and sticking to our guns.
Next time you all do this...remember to get you someone to keep you awake!
Thank you James! ::grin::
It'll be interesting in the end, to see how many really made it.
Okies, going to post this sucker and go see if I can get some shots now.
Dang light...who said it could be too dim anyway?
I was kind of hoping Ally would be able to get a comp to sit up with me while doing this. But no such luck.
That's kewl though! I've made a few new friends! ::Grin:: And I've managed to still be awake.
For those of you who want a ghost in your house, but just don't have the heart to commit murder, this may be for you.
Some of it is so pretty.
Alot of people are still in it! It's great to see. Makes me bummed that I didn't do the whole graveyard thing, I was really looking forward to it.
But next year if Cat does this again, I WILL do it, and I'll do it all night. ::stares at the sky::
Added the board log.
Here's another story for ya....
(Borrowed from the Ghost_Tales list.)
I used to live in Israel up to last April when I moved to Canada,
one of my best friends (who is now also in Canada), used to live in a quite street right against a half-ruined abandoned house.
Every time I visited that friend and we were sitting in his room after darkness fell we noticed some rather strange lights coming out of a what was once a window of that house, naturally I assumed that the source of those lights were some homeless people who came to sleep there, but the lights was in such strange shades of blue and as I noticed later origined from a place too high for a human to be there.
The last scarry event happened on the night when they left their house for the last time to go to "Ben-Gurion" Airport in Tel-Aviv, since they had a pretty large ammount of cash on them, they ask my dad to bring our German Sheppard, Rex to scare awaysomeone who might tried to rob them (just in case) and I tagged along with them, anyway you have to walk by the abandoned house in order to enter theirs, Rex's fur gone straight up and he refused to go any further as soon as they reached that house.
But, if you have a serious question, I'll ask it for you...but here's what we got so far....

I've never been able to decide if I like this show, or if it frightens me.
I'm leaning toward frighten...I think it's that little dog with the glasses.
NO! Christmas cartoons! That hits too close to last nights dream. I'm not ready to think about Christmas.
Anyway...still working on getting the pictures up for you. They'll be up soon.
I've apologized haven't I?
Robin just brought this up, on one of the tapes, every few moments, there is a bump. It almost sound like...you know the ticking an electric fence makes? It kind of sounds like that.
I'm going to try to figure out if it could have been recorder caused, but if not, there wasn't anything out there that could have done it.
It'll be interesting to figure out what it is.
I've truly been terrified and I never did get to see a ghost.
But, since I couldn't see one tonight, I'll tell you guys a story about ones I have seen/experianced/ect!
Let's see, since I was at Millers, I'll give you a Millers story.
The last time we were there, we got there around 6 pm, and it was pretty nice. Sunny, and warm. Well, I being the geek I am, decided we had to make a potty run. (Ok, so I didn't know there was one out there ok? I thought it was a shed, I can't help it.)
So we ran into Silverton and into Safeway (For those of you who don't know, it's a large grocery chain) and used the potty.
The bathrooms were nasty, incase anyone cares.
We went through DQ that was there, and ran back out to the graveyard. (Sorry, paused there..Jackie called...Hi Jackie!)
Anyway, we started driving, and I started feeling really ansy. It got worse the closer we got and by the time we got back it was full dark, and we pulled into the driveway at Millers it was so totally sufficating. It felt like there were people standing all around the car with their faces pressed against it.
I didn't even want to roll a window down, let alone open a door it was so intense.
We decided not to get out (Wimps? Yes! lol) and started home. The whole way home it felt like there was someone in the back seat with us.
I am SO sorry! I was looking forward to this too! It fried the car, and there was nothing left we could do.
I'll make it up though....don't know how yet, but I will!
Maybe I'll try another one someplace else sometime soon.
Bye Bye Robin's Alternator 2001 - 2001....::giggle:: RIP
Yep it's me! I'm back. Thank's Jackie for doing my posts for me. ::big hug:: I owe you. ::grin:: Wanna go to a graveyard? ::wiggles her eyebrows::
Welp, here's the story folks, the battery on the lap top died completely, then the car battery died completely. We shot the regulator all ta crap, no thanks to Radio Shack, and we had to abandon the car in Silverton and have a friend (Thank you Amy!) drive us home.
So, here I am, three hours later, back at my computer, tired, cold, frazzled and bummed.
But I didn't get eaten by a ghost.
One's new enough there isn't even a marker on it.
Question Number One:
Will Mike's Dad ever wear a Tux.
::stares at the sky::
Whoah, she just asked it if she was going to get activity tonight, and she says it went nuts.
Anyway...this question 1.
Answer: Says Yes.
Outhouses in graveyards are that much worse.
We're going to use a pendulum! ::laugh:: got our 2-ways, she's going out to the middle of the graveyard. If you have any questions, please post them to the comments!
Crosswise is no, straight is yes.
Ask yes or no questions. :)
Sooo...::think:: I've got a plan...but...I'm not sure if it'll work.
It's still in the planning stages.
So far, no cops, no more gawkers. Which is nice, I hate explaining myself.
"No, no no, a BLOG"
It's just a pain.
I can't believe it's already almost 7. Time sure does fly dosen't it? Especally when you've got a limit. By the time I'm done posting, it's almost time to do it again.
Seems a little sad...spent 280 bucks to get equipment to pull this off, and it still isn't working out right. But, I'm here and still online, so that in itself is a plus. Maybe I'll get lucky and get six more hours outta this thing. ::grin:: Nah? Oh well.
Ok, going to post this and then me and my lemon filled cookie are gonna grab a jacket...
That really did no good, so I'm here until this battery dies.
Sooo...::grin:: These big black clouds are moving in, they are like right over us, and all around it's blue sky. and if it dosen't rain (and this dosen't die) this'll make for great energy in the air. Which means we may get alot of action tonight.
Hours Till Dark: 2 1/2
I can't wait.
I'd take a picture, but you DON'T want to see that.
::grin:: Actually, she's putting batteries in the lanterns and flashlights.
Well...now she's making a phoooooooone call. ::grin:: Oh, isn't the play by play just killer?
I'll stop now.
I'm going to post this, and let this thing charge for a few minutes, then I'll be back. ::sigh:: ::Grin::
Until then, here's a picture of the doggy that was here earlier.
The kid is my little bro, he came to help me set up the first time.
There are some clouds out to my left that seem to be moving in, I'll keep you posted if we get wet or not.
Typing on the `Top'll take getting used too. I keep typoing.
Well, guess who is back at the graveyard! WOO!
So far things are all working great. This inverter works fine, I've got phone service, It's terribly sunny and warm, I've got company, I've got my comphy camping chair, I've got caffiene, I've got snacks, what more could a girl ask for?
How about some ghosts?
I added some ghost tips for you folks. If you can't find it later, it's in the "Other Stuff" section of the Graveyard Boogie.
I'll add some more in a bit, after I go back to the graveyard.
Yep, going back out! Leaving right after this post! Wish me luck ok?
And...go read James' Blog...it's good! And James is SUCH a sweetie. (And so is his wife...who I don't know but she said hi to me anyway!)
Got the cord from Radio Shack. 80 bucks. (EEEW!) We're heading back out there within the hour.
The weather is WONDERFUL! No rain, sunny, warm. It was perfect blogging weather out there.
And...there's a bathroom...
(Thanks for the comments...lol...you made my day...it's been BEYOND crazy.)
We ended up with clients, and they leave at three. I've got to go to Radio Shack, so, I'm going to RS, running back to my computer and logging, then, after the clients leave, I'm going to be back out here. So the next two times I babble, it'll be from muh computer.
Never fear however! The little ghostie girl'll be back soon. ::groan::
I love this anyway! ::grin::
Got a big problem, no power out here. It's been turned off and my lap top batery now reads 0...so unless I find something quick, you'll hear from me when I get back to the other computer.
Geees...this sucks...lemme grab some shots for you before this thing dies
This is the last post for today. I've got toooo much to do to be sitting here being a freak with REN! ::runs from Ren:: ::grin::
She's not even gonna watch! She's going bowling! BOWLING! Can you believe it? I've been abandoned for a game in which you wear smelly shoes that OTHER PEOPLE HAVE WORN!
I'm offended. ::grin::
Ok, I've got a special page I'm going to be using to post pictures, sounds and what not, so I've got to get that going...I've got to go get my stuff together....got to go beat some people into last minute sponsorship...got an interview at three...I'm still at work...oh yeah.
Hey `Thonners! Good luck with your last minute things! I'll catch you all tomorrow! Have a great evening, ya hear?
Yes, getting to do this has upped my mood alot. It takes a great deal of stress off. Especally since I've seen people are actually looking forward to something I'm doing for once! Wowee. ::giggle::
goofie237: So you don't have to go back to the laptop at the hotel or anything right?
Rhea Rhyolin: Nope
Rhea Rhyolin: yours truly will be sitting on her duff in the dirt the whole time
Rhea Rhyolin: lol
Rhea Rhyolin: I'm pschyed...even if it's posta rain
Rhea Rhyolin: lol
goofie237: Uh oh!
goofie237: I really hope it doesn't!
goofie237: Because what if things get REALLY scary
goofie237: and then
goofie237: it rain
goofie237: and you're STRANDED there with a bunch of GHOOOOOOOSTS?!?! ooooooohhhhohoh *spooky noises*
Rhea Rhyolin: ::laugh:: and...zombies start crawling out of the dirt! and EAT ME!
Rhea Rhyolin: lol
Rhea Rhyolin: rofl
Rhea Rhyolin: Ok ::grabs you:: I'm takin you, you can be my shield!
goofie237: hahhaha. very funny.
Rhea Rhyolin: ::grin::
Rhea Rhyolin: You know you wanna get eaten first
Rhea Rhyolin: "REN! Take REN! She tastes like CHICKEN!"
She knows she loves me. ::giggle::
Permission! SWEET! ::dances:: It's a go ladies and gentalmen! I've got the lap top right becide me, someone just went to go get me the cell connector phone. I'll get the phone tonight, pack my car up, go grab a digital camera and I'll be ready to fly tomorrow.
I can't wait! ::cackles::
Ok, going to go add myself to the web ring.
Got a letter from Kins yesterday, she's depressed. My phone has magicly lost service so I can't call her. (Plus the bill...can't forget that...) She needs to move here! Now!
I'm not sleeping well at night. I go to bed around 11 all tired, and I lay there and just can't get too sleep. I end up thinking myself exsausted. I should walk before I go to bed, get rid of all my excess energy. So I don't wiggle. (I do! lol...)
Off to call again. Keep those cyber-piggies crossed boys and girls.
I've missed phone calls, finally got ahold of someone and they directed me to the board of funeral directors, so now I'm waiting on ANOTHER phone call.
I haven't gotten the lap top yet, it looks like I won't be able to borrow a camera so I'll have to buy one, I have to buy I cord.
And I'm broke.
I haven't slept right in the last couple days and it's HOT!
I'm also at work, and NONE of them are behaving.
So I'm grumpy.
Keep your cyber-piggies crossed that something works out for me.
I'm going to go outside and stand in the sprinkler.
Oh yeah, did I mention it's supposed to rain this weekend?
So I just spent the last hour watermarking all my photographs of Hot Lake. Why you ask? Because they've turned up all over the place, used for all sorts of things, AND have been sent back to me by people saying 'Isn't this the kewlest?'.
Why yes, yes it is. Especally since I took that picture.
The site'll probably be up someday soon. Working 18 hour days kind of gets in the way of my HTMLing.
Aaaaahhh..speaking of sites. I actually HAVE new web sites for my design site, but lord knows when that'll be open. So no yelling, ok? Just...love me even if I'm a really bad procrastinator.
But..if you really need a set really bad, here's one of my stranger ones. Go ahead...take it away.
I got asked last night to design a set for a friend of mine. She wants me to draw dragonflies. I've never done dragonflies before, they look pretty easy though. I'll show ya what the end result looks like. This should be fun.
I don't do it by hand! ::grin:: You'd have to be NUTS! I love HTML, I don't love it that much.
I use a VERY awesome and simple program called Color Fazer.
Click on the link to get your own copy, and gradient to your little hearts content.
Make her stop! ::runs::
Still won't update my template. So just so you know, I'm talking to Kimmi, Liz, Mike and Butter (HI!) who was reading this a few minutes ago...donno if she still is ::grin:: She probably thinks I'm insane now.
and I am...and I'm staaalking yooooou....and I'm riiiiiight ouuuuuttsssiiiiide....
On another note, the guy about the Graveyard hasn't called me back. No permission, no graveyard for the Blog. No graveyard, mad people. Mad people, crying Jamie. Now, I know no one wants to see that.
What's with this permission thing? No one wants to give it to me. I must have the plague or something.
::does the happy postcard dance:: I LOVE POSTCARDS!
Got one from my friend Goofay ::duck:: down in FL! She saw my sad and pathetic plea for postcards and sent me one.
I still waiting for Mikes. ::growls at Mike:: I want my Italy post card man! ::grin::
Want to send me a postcard? You know you do...send me one ok? Please?
So I'm going to go tomorrow and do the last minute `Thon things. Um...call about permission. (I know!) check to see if I can get service out there, grab a data cable, get a laptop. You know...all the...important stuff. (Procrastinator extrodinare)
Today was the last day for sponsor sign ups, and to my knowledge I ended with 5. Not bad hu? I don't think so.
Someone with cancer.
I had Ally flashbacks. This story sounded ALMOST 100% accurate to what Ally told me was pulled on TONS of people in the cancer rooms on Prodigy years ago. The story finally died after almost a year with the 'death' of the child with cancer.
It's sad, very very sad. That people feel the need to do things like this to other people. Be it insecurity or fun.
I've been on the recieving end of this. For six years I was lied to (along with Hundreds of other people, dozens of them 'close friends' AND the people and relationships in his 'RL') by someone claiming to be something he wasn't.
I was his mistake, he let me in closer then he did anyone else, and after a long period of time putting the clues together I confronted him.
Unlike the people with 'Kaycee' I never got the truth from him. He cut me, and everyone else off. In fact, somehow with some people so bound to not believe it, I've become the subject of their anger.
I like the people in 'Kaycee's' story, knew they'd never hear from this person again.
His story mirrors 'Kaycees' with insane and scary lines. Lying to protect lying, making up other false people to replace people that have been questioned.
This is a disease. These people needing this validation by pretending to be others need help.
Was I angry? Sure, eight months ago when I finally decided what I knew was the truth, I was extremely angry. But my anger would solve nothing, I knew confronting him would cause more lies. He's not going to admit the truth, to me, or to anyone.
Did I feel stupid? For a while...yeah. Especally since I let it go on longer then I should have. I did that because I myself wasn't ready for the whole confronting thing...and...I'm very trusting, very willing to let peoples weird things slide, I'm a dork who believes the best in everyone. It got me fried. But that's kewl, I took away the things I need to learn, and I won't let anyone do that again. But that dosen't mean I won't trust people again. Trust and letting people poke sticks in your eye are two different, seperate things.
Remember this, if you're lying to people about who you are over the internet, don't be so foolish to believe they're just some nameless, faceless somebodies typing to you. We've all got feelings, we all worry, get attached, love, and none of us deseve to be manipulated like that, and if you aren't careful, some people aren't going to be as forgiving about it as the rest of us.
If you DON'T sponsor me it DOES NOT make you a bad person. I just mean that it's sad these days when people turn their backs to people who need help. Yet you know those people would demand help if they needed it. It's just a thing of giving what you can, if you can't, just you support of stopping by and saying 'howdy' during the Thon is enough.
Or...email...I love email. ::faints::
So, my neighbor, (the one who's planted plants in my yard) watered my poor dying misrable flowers on my front porch for me yesterday. Wasn't that just so sweet of her? I thought so!
I'm so terrible...I need to plant those. But..it's hot out...::runs::
Thank you so much to my fifth sponsor Cass. You're a sweetie! ::throws confetti in Cass' general direction::
Everyone tell Cass she's an angel. ::grin::
Someone on one of the lists we sent the letter to, a Ghost Hunting list, decided that I was a terrible person for asking for donations or support for this.
Another person accused me of being a 11 year old child, and I should be forgiven for my 'good cause'
Another said I should be drawn and quatered.
Another demanded my apologies
Only one person stood up for me, and I thank them very much for it. Thank you for seeing my side, and that I only wish to help.
As much faith as this has given me for the people who want to help, it hurts to see how many very angry and spiteful people there are out there who are more upset over the letter they got in the mailbox then the family starving just a house away.
I do not care if people don't donate, that's not why I wrote. Hell, I've got four people, more then I dreamed I would! I just thought people in those circles would like to see something that was along their alley. To attack me, belittle my cause, to try and wreck my spirit is wrong. I, and no one else in the world, deserves that from anyone.
I pray, that someday someone shows them as much kindness and love as the people doing the blogathon are showing.
So anyway, I ran over to help. (After a night of reliving my meals from the day before.) and this lady was interogating all the poor little kids. "What's your name? Are you SURE that's your name? What's your age?" She said it's just a way of 'cross checking' information.
That's just a nice way of saying 'Checking to see if your not corrupting the children by having them lie for you because we all know your imbezziling pennies from the USDA food program to feed your crack habbit, you child molester.'
I don't feel good.
So when Gretchen mentioned sponsoring her, I did. (The sad 'no one wants to sponsor me' post in her blog won me over...I sympathize! Oh yes I do!)
See, that's why I've been sick for the last 24 hours...pennants!
I'm forgiven now right? No more throwing up?
Oh please...I can't take it.
Now...let's see if I can keep this soup down. I'll keep you updated...because I know you want to know.
How stupid is that?
Unless of course your willing to forgo getting paid this month, and they'll switch you. Isn't that great? You don't get paid, don't eat, don't pay your bills or anything for one whole month, and you'll be lucky enough to get switch into another USDA BS program.
Oh, I'm just all aflutter.
It's bad if I want to go to the hospital.
I ended up standing under the hottest water I could do for an hour. It got a little better after that and I was tired enough that I just fell asleep.
But now I'm just sore.
Our fill in had a problem with a flat this morning, and I haven't had the chance to get away to get stuff in motion so I'm not breaking tresspassing laws when I do the blog thang.
So I'll sit here in EN (Which Jerry so kewley reopened.) wait...pardon me...the Mud Formally Known As Endless Nameless ::grin::
I'm such a lazy bum.
Since I'm going to be spending 24 hours in a graveyard. (Along with company, I'm not going alone...I'm not senile.) I'm going to eventually run out of questions to ask my trusty tools of the trade. (Recorders, Spirit Boards, Pendulums....::grin:: ) So! From now until the day I camp myself out in the cold, I'm taking suggestions of questions to ask the local haunt. (Pun? What pun?)
Just drop them in my comments, or send me an email. Keep it mature...I take this stuff seriously, so please don't ask me to ask really silly questions.
Elvis is dead....deal with it.
Oh yes...from a graveyard.
For 24 hours.
It's gonna be COLD! But fun...and...nifty. Going to see if I can borrow a digital cam, or get one. Do some sounds...all that fun stuff.
Now, my only problem is the phone thing. I have not a wireless modem, so I eaither...A) see if the church has a phone line or B) rent a hotel room to quickly drive there and back to upload. That'll be a pain in my behind if it's B...but hey. I kin do it. I'm superwoman.
Now, since I'm going to sit IN the COLD in the DARK (for a long period of time) in a GRAVEYARD the least you can do is SPONSOR me. I don't ask alot....really.
I can't seem to keep my horrible naughty self away from Ebay. I found two perfect gifts for Kins, one is a signed Bon Jovi poster with a horse. (She loves them both) another is a geetar (Don't hit me) signed by Bon Jovi, which I did bid on.
She'd faint...I mean fall down and DIE.
I'm going to write her boyfriend a note and direct him that way...maybe he'll think it's a good idea too and bid on it if I lose it. He'd win points....points are good.
Michael (::bug bug bug::) is being SO sweet and sending me Alice (Shhh....) and letting me bug him all at the same time. I'm still awaiting my postcard from Italy though. I love postcards.
SEND ME POSTCARDS! ::grin::
I'm hot. I want a nap. I'm whiny. ::sigh::
Spent like a ton of time on the phone with Kins last night...guess she's completely decided she's going to do the roomate thang in Feb. Which is great, I'll have my bestist friend AND I'll have someone to help with rent, since my landlady told me she's raising it 100 bucks yesterday. Yippy. It's worth it though, two bedroom, back yard, front yard, two car garage, walking distance to everything, nice neighboorhood and someday it'll have flowerbeds.
I don't wanna talk about the flowerbeds though.
I have to do something about my back yard, it's a mess. Hmm..guess I could this weekend...depends on how hot it gets.
It's hot right now! Hot hot hot hot hot. ::whine::
I went on an Ebay binge yesterday. Bid on a good 100 bucks worth of stuff. One was a haunted voodoo doll (would look great in a case in my house.) but NOOOo someone outbid me when I left.
The rest is like presents for people, and frog charms for my bracelet. I love charm bracelets. Love love love love love.
I looked ALOT at dollhouse stuff. Minitures are so amazing. I have two houses that need to be furnished. I can't wait to start doing it. It's like interior decorating cheaper. ::grin:: It's also a reason why I love the Sims...I can do whatever I want, and it dosen't cost me a cent. One day...I'll be rich...and then I'll play with big houses.
You just wait. ::grin::
I mentioned I was listening to the 7th Guest Soundtrack...which is probably one of my all time favorite games...of well...all time.
( ::cough:: What?)
For those of you who've never played it. (And what rock have YOU been hiding under?) It's deffinatly worth a pick up, even a kabigilian years after it was released. (Ok, not a kabigilian, it was made in `95. Made by Trilobyte released by Virgin with a wonderful sountrack by The Fat Man who's done tons of other game music. I'm terribly sad to say Trilobyte went buh bye a couple years ago...I LOVED THEM! ::sigh:: They released a few more games after T7G...which are good too. ) The soundtrack is NOT computer music, and even has speaking underlays. It's creepy and great.
The game starts with you watching a drifter named Stauf (Stauf, Henry Stauf...ok...wrong plot.) as he comes to realize by creating toys, and feeding the 'voices' in his head souls he can acheave the power promised to him..and the 'voices' (demons) will be set free. (Ever read the novel? It's good...what? No, I'm not obsessed...honest.) Sounds fair to me.
So Staf creates these toys, and the local children all start to die. During this time, he locks himself away, and invites six local people who are hard up for help to his house.
Shoot to the begining of the game, you wake up not knowing who you are, or where you are. Quickly you find out that your smack dab in the middle of the mans Foyer, in the mans house, with a bunch of ghosts.
You move through the house solving puzzles, watching movies and collecting bits and clues about whats going on. If you haven't played it, I won't ruin the plot for you. Trust me though...it's worth a good play or two. :)
Anyway! The point of this babble! If you loved the game, and lost the 2nd CD (Where the soundtrack is located.) I've got it...or if you just want to check it out, give me a yell and I'll send it your way. Be advised it's a 27 minute long MP3 ::giggle::
Give me a horror game...and I am one happy girl.
Thanks Jerry! Your so sweet! :) ::does a happy sponsor dance:: 18 days to go! You still have a chance to sponsor me, yes me! You know you wanna. ::bats her lashes::
Kins and I have talked alot about Ars, which has gotten me into a building mood. So I've been spending a little time developing the background and what not for it there.
I love the idea of having it totally full of culture and little doodads that make it fun. I'm a sucker for details.
I haven't reopened Hot Lake, I'm going to work on it today while it's still cool. (I'm currently deleting pages from the server, it bothers me that people surf my not open site because they know what pages to look for. So I'm a freak, so what? They write me and go: "This link dosen't work, this page has nothing on it" and I go...duh, the sites not open yet. Then I feel pressured, I hate pressure!)
I'm so proud of myself though, I installed a cgi-script and it actually works!
I also have a few other sites I've REALLY GOT TO WORK ON! Stop letting me be so durn lazy! I've got to design a half page ad for the Childcare too...I have until like Sept. but I'd like to get it done and out of my way so I'm not doing it at the last minute. (See: Lazy.)
I've ordered 9 CDs from Play...well...have them sitting in my shopping cart. I haven't hit order yet because I can't decide if I really want to buy them. I want them...I just don't want to pay.
Oh yeah, she works hard for her money. ::runs::
I really like "The American"...I only downloaded all the MP3's (Oh shush) I'm going to get the CD as soon as I get paid. It's really good...if you like...um ::thinks:: FFF or Vertical Horizon you'll like the CD. ::nods:: Me being the great music mestro I am. I know these things...go...buy...now!
I've got a bunch of stuff to do today. I need to get a card for a certain someone and work on....Oooo..I almost said! It's a secret! (Especally if this person is reading this ::grin:: No! Nothing for you! SHOO!)
I should charge my phone...anyone seen my charger?
The building aspect, I don't RP. I'm a builder/programmer at heart. (Not hard code...no way, confuses me to no end. That's why I'm going to bribe someone to do it for me.)
I hate being in there alone though.
I borrowed Kins GS account so I could 'gather' object ideas from the players and some game ideas from the BB system there.
Now, In my own little opinion this is great, I can get player feedback and what they want, without having to do the footwork.
See, I'm a perfect American. Success off the backs of my fellow hard working `zens.
Ally called me on the way home, she was like "I'm past that firework stage."
HOW CAN YOU BE PAST THAT? I LOVE fireworks! The lights, the smoke, the FIRE...the...the fire!
Maybe it's just my pyromaniac tendincies showing, but it upset me.
Spent the day at the river, at Mark & Donna's house. (They have such a great spot...it's not FAIR! ;) ) It was so lovely, and I made it through the entire day without getting burnt. How ever did I get so lucky?
Bud's birthday was yesterday too, and he seems pretty happy with what he got. He's packing around a little TV he got. It's got a radio built into it too. What's worse then Judge Judy? Judge Judy in black and white.
I'm spamming for sponsors again. If you're interested, the buttons right over there. ;)
It's not that I wasn't mature enough, at 17 I was going on 49. It's just that...hell, I'm not ready to get married NOW (Not that I'm in a relationship. I'm single single YAY!) it's just that.
Now, other people do it, and are happy. Dang, most of my childhood friends and 90% of my other friends now are eaither engaged or married. (Or have KIDS! We're not going there...oh no.)
Scares me...scary scary scary.
Moonie got married Tuesday. And GIRL I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU! ::beams:: ::grin:: She's happy, and that's great. They even bought a house. ::grin::
I'm gonna pass. I've got my own place...I don't want to share!
Kim (Wova Woo Kimminie! ::giggle:: ) is getting married soon (I gotta get her a present...whatcha want Kim?) and her sweetie's just plain ole sweet. (I approve, aren't you thrilled?)
I'll probably never get married. (I'm high matinance and hard to put up with...ask anyone I know. Oh, and I'm selfish and manipulating...and I don't wanna share my house...see selfish.)
I'll just get a couple more cats. ::grins:: (Glad Ally dosen't have netsess, she'd be kicking me and setting me up. ::grins:: )
I don't want blind dates eaither.
Just a shower buddy that looks good in tight jeans. ;)
Ever notice how they watch you watching them and crawl up the wall? You know what their thinking don't you? "How high do I have to go before I can leap down on her and giggle as she squeals".
I don't squeal anymore. (Ha ha to you spiders!)
I used to, and I am so ashamed of it. They're still icky. And gulldummit They MERIT squealing!
My flowers are dying. (No thanks to the spiders I'm sure.) It's a crime, I should be arrested. Flower abuse, I should be locked away. I should turn myself in. I haven't planted them yet....I haven't even finished the flower beds to plant them in yet. It's been too hot.
That's my exscuse.
Someone's house caught on fire last night. (Ok, this is an uninformed opition based on the fact that I wandered around in my P.J's last night in a neighborhood full of smoke. I'm ASSUMING from the lovely fire trucks and all that, that it was a house. Might have been something else...who knows.) It wasn't MY house, which is good, but it was someones house, which isn't good at all. I'm willing to bet my left arm that it was fireworks. See! That's why you don't let stu..er...common sense challeneged people have matches.
Got home and Boots was outside. Who let Boots outside? That's the 64,000,000,000,000,000 dollar question.
