 Looking back... (Permalink)
You know, sometimes when I look back over the ten+ years that I've been online, I can't help but think about the firsts... First chat I ever entered was chatting.com. First e-mail ever was hotmail. First website ever was on FortuneCity.

Right now, things seem to be changing and stumbling. I wonder what the norm will be ten years from now.

 Painted Wizard (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous

I was asked about the image I used as a card for the Yuku Blog Ring.

 

image

It's some sort of fabric-like thing glued to a cardboard. I can't remember who bought it for me but basically you dipped the paintbrush in some colored water and touch it to the fabric. The paint would spread. Sometimes if you put too much, the color would darken. Some of my 'darkening' attempts for shading caused it to spill over the lines so there's some goofs if you look hard.

 Happy Thanksgiving! (Permalink)
If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you enjoy your turkey or ham or whatever it is that y'all eat. ;)

 Writer's Block on LJ: ohrwurm (Permalink)
Topic: Videos
German has a word for everything, like ohrwurm. Translated literally as "earworm" in English, it's the word for songs that get stuck in your head and won't go away. What earworm of a song do you most dread burrowing into your head? (View Answers)

I like this question on LJ today. I'm gonna use this as an excuse to post another YouTube video... Let's see if I can post it without screwing this entry up! hehe.

 
 
I hate the singer's voice but the lyrics are catchy.

 Reincarnation (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
You know, this topic interests me a lot... I sometimes tinker around with the idea wondering what previous lives I lived if such a thing is true. Is it just endlessly reincarnating or is there some higher purpose such as learning lessons and then trascending to a higher place once you've learned everything here...

 Trying to remember a book... (Permalink)
Topic: Story
I remember reading a story where it was about this kid who had to only take one item with her. They were all getting in a spaceship and had to leave Earth. I think the Earth was about to explode so they all had to leave. The only thing I can remember about where they landed was that the grass was so tough that it cut through their shoes. I can't find it on Google either...

 Random memories... (Permalink)
I saw a picture recently of this red station wagon from my childhood. Before the old days when everyone had to be buckled in, I remember the backseat would be taken out and it would let my siblings and I just lay around and color or play games on long road trips. That was fun awesome times.

Of course, it led to the endless rants from my father because we always left our crayons in the back... You can imagine how fun it is to see the crayons melted into the mats. I remember being at July 4th fireworks and at nights, when we're heading home, my sister and I would lay in a certain position where we can see the moon through the side window and wonder how it could easily follow us anywhere...

It was sad that the station wagon was sold off. Trips were no longer fun when you're forced to sit up and be buckled in. *smirks*

Topic: Miscellaneous
It froze overnight,
It dropped to twenty seven.
Heater was turned on.

The weekend is here.
I plan to watch some movies.
Hope I enjoy them.

I dread Monday though.
It may be a day of pain
With a lot of blood.

I'll spare the details
but just saying I may not
post all days of month.

 Another prompt. (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Imagination Prompt Generator:
Name three people you last e-mailed, and why.

1. A stranger - For genealogy information.
2. A friend - For game information.
3. A friend - For movie information.

Pretty vague but nothing interesting about any of it.

 The Imagination Prompt Generator (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Imagination Prompt Generator:
Name three things you are grateful for.

1. Despite living on various military bases, I am thankful that my childhood was pretty much stable. My parents never had any nasty arguments or anything like that. I feel that I am extremely lucky in this area.

2. My closest friend. Even though I have found some old friends through the net, I found that we've changed way too much and I haven't kept in contact with a single one after finding them! My closest friend knows a lot about me that no one else does and I just don't see this friendship ending in any possible way except 'drifting apart' but we chat way too much for that to happen.

3. And of course, the obligatory food mentioning. French Fries. Whoever was the very first person to stare at a potato and said, "They should be cut into little sticks. I bet they'd taste good with some ketchup!" deserves a big gift basket.
