Looks like I'll be moving completely over to dreamwidth soon. I need to start finding out where my friends are now, actually start following people again... But I'm here.

Today's mild scare about the entirety of LJ returning a 404 was a stark reminder that I need to start moving my ass when that website finally goes offline. It probably won't be for years down the road, but it's slowly dying due to mismanagement. It's really sad to see a site that I spent a good part of my "online life" slowly die.

In other news, I've imported all my stuff for my main journal now. Icons, posts, everything. If you've claimed your open ID, or have added me earlier, you've already got access. I need to do the same for this account and for others.

I'll try to start paying more attention to this journal. I might even give it a layout again.

Man, it's been forever. HI GUYS!

Apologies to the F-list for posting a seemingly random Generator Rex essay on my personal account, but I didn't have anywhere else to put it. And a lot of this has already been said by wildhybrid @ tumblr, but she and I have a lot of the same mindset regarding canon. Something about playing the brothers together--I'm not sure! Some of it is built off of her stuff and some of it we came up with independently.

It's big. It's under a cut. It also contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Season 3. )

A Sasuke-Naruto-Iruka drabble. Possibly AU. Supposedly happens after the series. I'll look over it/title it later.

The drabble. )

I'm sad to say that Donatello didn't make it.

The fin rot on his anal fin was mostly gone, but during a water change, I broke his tank. I stuck him in a slightly over one gallon hospital tank, and he seemed to not quite enjoy it, but was doing otherwise fine. Two days later, I finally had time to get him a new tank, and brought it home. But it was too late...

That same day, something really upset him and he shredded his tail. Except shredded doesn't quite describe it--it was literally the third of the length it was previously, with much of that length dead, and shredded bits of fin were everywhere. The bits of fin caused a bacterial bloom that was too much for his always been weak immune system, and by the time I got home....

He had full blown dropsy, pineconing, gasping for breath, the works, and it was obvious he'd be dead by morning. After finally finding the clove oil at GNC, I was able to put him asleep. He fought the clove oil for a moment, but settled when I placed his stuffed fox plush next to him. Don was still laying there calmly when I finally dosed him with vodka.

Thank you everyone for the help (especially to [livejournal.com profile] kittencuffs for answering my frantic PMs). The treatments I was told to give him really helped improve his last few weeks of life. It really sucks that he had to go that way, but at least he didn't suffer for that long.

I asked for rain/a thunderstorm for my birthday, and I got it! ♥♥♥!

Also, LJ fixed the "invalid submission form" message so that it pops up your post under it instead of forcing you to hit the back button and having to completely redo it. Awesome!

FUCK

D: Why did the internet have to go down the shitter at my hotel the very night the Visitors poll was posted? I gave up on doing anything RPG related during the week until I came home due to it, since I could only really do AIM, and no one told me about the poll, so...

FUCK.

My position on that whole health care reform thing:

In under two months from now, without a job that isn't retail, I will no longer have insurance. I cannot collect unemployment because I left my last job to go back to college. I am likely not eligible for Medicaid. With this economy, even applying to at least ten jobs a week, I am not likely to get an entry level position when more experienced workers apply for it.

So I'm all for a government run alternative for those who don't have insurance if it's done right.

argh

Didn't get that job, either. That's 0/3 in terms of interviews.

I've been out of school for too long, so now I'm forgetting stuff and messing up questions every time.

Maybe I'm just not cut out for this field after all. Or maybe I need to fuck what Mom says about a constant job search and restudy my entire curriculum instead before searching some more.

Edit: Mom says the problem is that all the entry level positions are being taken up by those that are experienced. And because of the economy, employers are posting entry level positions that aren't actually entry level positions. Makes me feel a little better.

But I'm still jobless. And I doubt I can get a retail job, either. They're probably looking for perfection there, too.

Great, I think I just fucked up that interview, too.

I really suck at remembering anything.

I need a picture of Yondaime/Namikaze Minato that shows surprise for a userpict. It's impossible to find, though, and I'm getting extremely frustrated.

Does anyone have a Doujinshi with an expression like surprise/shock?

Update: Hostage situation is over and everything is back to normal~

Free Anime Studio 5! They're not kidding, either! FREE. And you don't have to give them credit card info, either.

XD; No idea how good it is, though. People will just have to play with it.

Arrrgghh

Dear Flist,

How can I convince my mother that calling the first day after the 4th of July weekend to ask about my resume is a VERY BAD IDEA? Because it is. I'm going to annoy the fuck out of people who just got back from vacation.

Auuuuuuugh.

Love,

Jenn

Edit: Okay, did as she told me to. =P I got two personnel voice mails (one called back.. only to say that they had no openings for entry level, which website confirms, bleck), one just said "please wait"/rang forever, and the last company not only didn't answer their phone, but their general mailbox was already full. WTF.

Now I'm applying to more places to make Mom happy. Ugh. I found one place that seems to have entry level positions, if you ignore the "1-2 years experience" thing.

Hmm...

The longer I listen to music on my computer, the longer I find myself turning the volume down and down. Winamp is at 19% volume and my master volume is at a comparable percentage. I bet my dad can't even hear this.

ALSO! My new camera arrived in the mail. Haven't had a chance to start playing with it.

And still looking for a job. Ugh. I just started to get calls about applications/letters I sent out about a month ago. People really aren't hiring right now, are they?

Edit: Also, there is an asdf.com. Similar to fearthedonut.com, but less obscure. I know of both simply because I randomly typed them into the address bar.

... Yeaaaaah, you read that right. I actually typed fearthedonut.com into the address bar many years back and laughed and laughed when I actually got a website. I was bored, in my defense.

IF YOU READ THE SLEEPYFANS TRANSLATION OF THE CHAPTER:

ON PAGE 16, SASUKE DID NOT SAY KAGES. HE SAID HOKAGE.

CAN THEY EVEN READ FUCKING RIGHT? IT SAYS HOKAGE. HOKAGE. AS IN THERE IS A "HO" KANJI BEFORE THE "KAGE" KANJI.

WTF SLEEPYFANS. THAT IS A BEGINNERS' MISTAKE. COMPLETELY CHANGES WHAT SASUKE WAS SAYING!

:| Tried to avoid spoilers. Can't say the same for the comments.

eEEE~

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] mewchangeling!

I can't take it anymore. I love my old camera, but these nice new shiny cameras actually have things like image stabilization. It takes great pictures--as long as I use flash or hold perfectly still, which I can't do with my ADHD!

So I'm looking for a new digital camera. One that can take nice close-up shots of things such as insects but is good at things like faces in somewhat dark restaurants! Probably looking to spend about $200, max.

Any suggestions?

Edit: Got a camera! It's the Canon PowerShot A2000 IS, and I got the combo for the case/4 GB SD card (free!), and then the 10% off coupon code EMCDC10. So $160 or so with shipping for everything. SWEET.

Michael Jackson died.

Say what you will about him, but it's weird to have him gone.

Edit: Farrah Fawcett, too. Man...
