Testing this crossposting business...

Many people seem to be migrating and since I already have a dw, I thought it might be time I test this thing out.

Not like I haven't been importing occasionally anyway. XD;;

Google-fu level up?

Well...[livejournal.com profile] baby_jeans was right. Found my answer regarding the late night helicopter.

It is late...

And there is a helicopter flying around my neighborhood. It just keeps circling around and making noise. Huh?

A small relief...

Got offered full-time position at current workplace. Had a 2nd interview for web coordinator a good month ago. Things went really, really fast when I told supervisor I had an 'interview' on Monday and needed to take the day off.

So I suppose I'll be sticking around the current place for at least another year or two and see where that takes me.

I know I'll be plenty busy either way. Lots of projects coming up. Urgh.

Haircuts and shiny things!

So I cut off like 4-6" of hair today. It doesn't even touch my shoulders when I'm sitting up straight. Ponyails are no longer possible I don't think I've had it this short since grade school. Hahaha...

Sister just went with me to trim her bangs. [livejournal.com profile] kdahlia met us at salon and we all meandered our way through Chinatown to Soho. Bought another button down because I like pintucks and a new dress. Don't think I can wear it yet though since it's rather light and airy. Way too cold right now. But soon!

The point of today's little trip was to visit Alice's Tea Cup on 64th Street, but it was so busy it was ridiculous. It was already past 2:30 and [livejournal.com profile] kdahlia was way past hungry and into completely not feeling her stomach. Found a diner around the corner and had a nice brunch.

Hopefully next time, we'll manage to make it to a table in Alice!

Baking escapades

Made red velvet mini cupcakes today. They don't seem to be very chocolatey though. We got a new stove in the kitchen so I thought I should christen the oven by baking something.

I probably should have stuck with egg tarts instead. Would have taken pictures but it was already pretty dark by the time [livejournal.com profile] kdahlia and I finished piping frosting onto them.

Was going to bring them into work to get rid of them all, but now I'm not too sure. The texture of the stuff in the beginning was kinda dubious. I also ran out of confectionary sugar for the frosting. Recipe called for 2 cups, I only had 1 3/4 left.

Blah. Maybe I'll make another attempt next weekend. I have most of the ingredients already. Just need to buy some more confectionary sugar.

On the verge of a cold

Ugh...I think this Airborne thing the sys admin gave me to prevent a possible oncoming cold is making me sick now.

I will really not look forward to this weekend if I do get sick. >_

Never again!!

I took apart my iPhone to replace the housing today.

Cut myself twice with the exacto blade I was using to pry open the screen and also destroyed a small screwdriver.

Everything seems to be working, though the power button seems to be a bit wonky. In order to fix that, I have to take it apart again.

Maybe over the weekend. =_=; I need to let these cuts heal first.

Ugh....Day 1 of Nanowrimo.

Somehow I managed to make it.



Sleeping now. Kthxbai.

That time of year again....

Nanowrimo starts tomorrow. And since I don't really have much besides 1 class and 3 days of work this year, I'm going to attempt to keep with it.

I should probably make one of those nifty top post entries so I don't spam everyone with a word count every day.

Wish me luck! I don't think I've ever written more than 15k for nano either before giving up so I think I'll need every bit.

Just amazing

So I'm doing the one thing I didn't think I'd ever do.

I'm playing World of Warcraft.

Please excuse me while I bang my head against the wall.

50% Power outage

Half my house has power. The other half does not. That includes my fridge, entertainment system and computers.

ARGH!!!

Used extension cable to connect router and computer to side of the house that does have power.

ETA from ConEd? Sunday 1AM.

Seriously...what?

[EDIT@3:36PM] Power's back Here's hoping it stays that way.

Anyone ever play this on a Windows 7 machine?

Anyone?

I'm not at the point where I'll install it on my virtual machine yet, but I might go ahead and do that.

Is this working properly?

So, in lieu of the spate of LJ problems, I finally made myself import all my LJ entries.

Problem would be reading my flist. Hahaha...We'll see if I can figure that out.

I'm not really moving to DW. I'm mostly just posting from DW because it'll automatically crosspost, which is pretty awesome.

Need to edit those San Fran pictures. Haven't even looked at them yet.

Also need to revise resumé and write that damn cover letter. I seriously need to leave current job before I get dragged into more 'voluntary' jobs I have no interest in. How standing on the pool deck handing out refreshments/towels is an IT related thing, I have no idea. Not like I have a choice in it either. They say it's voluntary, but there's a heavy suggestion of, "Go because your job depends on it." I need to finish up those forms, hand this crap in and mark my 'internship' finished so I can get the class over with. Urgh...seriously don't way to stay anymore. Sys admin is an ass and if I hear any more chauvanistic remarks from him, I'm liable to choke a bitch.

Half-tempted to get a paid DW account too so I can go with the custom moods. But most of the things I read are on LJ. Decisions, decisions.

Back from San Francisco!!

Well...have been back since Thursday night, but whatever. *koff* Pictures are still on camera...too lazy to properly unpack. Only really distributed souveniers to family members.

Still getting random people friending me. I have no idea what is up with that.

Hello San Francisco!!

In San Francisco now. Kinda cloudy. I'm hoping it won't be to bad tomorrow. Kinda want to rent a bike and ride around and all that.

Totally jetlagged. Trying to stay up but with [livejournal.com profile] kdahlia already passed out...it's a bit difficult.

Feel so touristy. XD Wish we had a local to show us around. We basically just stayed in the same general area. We bought a Muni pass to ride around as much as we can for the next few days so it should be worth it.

Here's hoping for picture taking.
