We've had rain for the past couple days or so. Which is why it's currently 70 degrees out instead of anywhere from the mid-90's to 103.
Hopefully, it'll stay low so I can mow the yard when it dries out enough, because the grass has finally started getting long enough to need it for the first time in a few weeks. It's also no longer brown.
Welp. I downloaded GIMP so I can learn to color icons I made by cropping/resizing from doujinshi.
My first attempt (which I showed caitycat) came out rather pathetic. Next time I try, I'll try to figure out layers and how they work so I won't cover the lines.
I recently hopped onto RuneScape to check something with my stats (high scores are no longer F2P) and got to talking to some clanmates. One of them was told over a game he was playing with another over xbox that I was on and hopped on to talk to me.
Between dreaming about playing and my brain working on ways to regain the stuff lost, I'm back to playing. As Caity knows, due to my starting up my RS babble at her again. XD;
...Well. Apparently, there used to be about two-three pounds of chocolate chips that my mother had been keeping in the dining room for some reason. The mice that we had that finally moved out? Found them long before Dad did while he was cleaning in there. What's left has been thrown out.
Also, she had been keeping a catbox in there that she filled with plastic bags of stuff. -_- Of course, the cats found it and peed in there. So whatever was in there are gone.
I got rid of some stuff from my room and broke down the boxes my computer came in and put those in Dad's car for him to stuff in the cardboard recycling... thing at work. I didn't do that much or was outside as much, yet I'm still hot and sweaty. @.@
I've hopped onto RuneScape for the first time in months. A couple of my clanmates were glad to see me.
I'm currently building up supplies. The missing stuff doesn't hurt as much. I'm able to think about replacing it instead of falling apart about it. So I'm working on what I can get in F2P. After that, we'll see.
Yesterday, I mowed my entire yard. Less than half an hour after I finished, it started sprinkling just enough to make everything damp. (It didn't really get going until later.) Obviously, I finished just in time.
I've started writing in my Envy/Ed universe again. Apparently using first one, then the other in RP has made them start getting noisy again. I've completed one fic so far and currently have another one open in anther tab. And ideas for a couple of others. Hopefully, I can start getting other stuff written again too.
I'm wondering if maybe I should start posting my Envy/Ed stuff finally. I've only posted it in my journals under flock so far, but not actually for people in general to see it.
Oh, things I forgot to talk about in the last entry. I tried adding Sims 1 to the computer. Managed to play it fine for awhile but later got told I added another extension pack between playings (I hadn't and there wasn't any more to add after Makin' Magic anyway) and that it wanted to update. Then it would only let me uninstall. It looks like it may be too old to work properly on Windows 7. Dammit. >_< And it worked great before that issue cropped up, too. Ran much faster than on the old computer.
After setting up my PS2 and tv, I did a quick bit of playing my games to make sure all of them got transferred to the new memory card okay. (They were on my sister's) I then played through the first FMA game from the point I had stopped at. Since it was my second play through, there were extras for me to grab to unlock. Movie clips and pictures. I got most of them. It would be easier to find them if they weren't in identical chests to normal in-game objects to get. The second game makes it easier to identify the bonus content to grab even if it makes it really hard to get to some of the purple crystals.
Anyway. This time I didn't bother healing in the fight with Roy and Armstrong since I'm not supposed to win it anyway and I'll need the healing stuff for my next play through, which will mainly be about trying to find all the things. Got to be really frustrated and had to take a break for the last two important fights, because they were right after each other with no save point between and I kept dying during the second fight. And the first one? Involved three really tough chimera and it typically takes me 30-40 minutes to get through that fight. I had to rage quit for awhile and do something else for a couple of hours, 'cause I was getting too pissed off. I did get through it eventually. As seen by the beginning of this paragraph.
Oh, and while I was internetless, I got tto phishing attempts to get my RuneScape info. Apparently just to rub salt into the wound. -_- You're too late, assholes.
Well, I got to have no internet for several days. My sister called Verizon several times but they didn't know what was wrong either and were 'working on it'.
On Friday, Mom and I finally put together the tv stand and set up the tv that used to belong to my grandmother and is now mine and my sister set up my PS2 for me. So I can now play video games in my room. So if I get bored of the internet, I can just go a little further away and play games and just have people on IRC stalkword me if they want to get my attention. :D
I've been reading a book my Uncle Manny's loaning me. It's called 'I Will Bear Witness'. It's actually two volumes. The first covers 1933-1941 and the other covers 1942-1945. The author is Victor Klemperer. It's his diary (well, part of it, just the part covering those years) and shows the day to day things of the Nazi regime.
