This amuses me greatly.

Loafin’ about.

I went to work today, but they sent me home about three hours in because they had too many people and we weren’t getting many people in the store. So I sat around the house and played on my computer. I found a game called Rappelz. It’s an MMORPG. Does anyone play it? I’ve just started, and I’m only level 12, but it’s pretty neat so far. I’ll see how it goes.

My friends are getting annoyed. I haven’t posted in my forum in a few days. They’re telling me to stop blogging and playing games, and to get in there and post. Buuuut… I don’t feel like writing. It stinks. I don’t like that they are upset with me, but I really don’t want to force it, or my posts will end up really bad. *Siiiiigh.* Oh well, at least that’s my biggest dilemma of the day, haha.

I stumbled on this comic, Lackadaisy, and read the archives in one sitting. It’s based during the prohibition and the cast is cats. The main character, Rocky, is a violin player and moonlights as a gin and whiskey runner for an underground bar. He is a super upbeat character, even in the tightest situations. He is, however, incompetent in mostly everything except the violin, which doesn’t help when people are shooting at him. The comic is done in a sepia tone, and is very nicely drawn. The humor is great, and the characters well thought out. I’m not sure what the update schedule is. I’d recommend this comic as a good read.

Ooh. And to anyone who doesn’t know what prohibition is, it was a period of time where the US government outlawed alcohol. Of course, this just drove everything to the black market.

Hum hum, more later.

I made a cake. It’s a chocolate fudge cake with chocolate drizzle and candy pieces. Heh, really sugary. I’m going to serve it in tiny pieces, haha. My good camera is broken, so I had to use my old one…

Work today was… interesting. It was a lot busier than usual, and when I walked into the break room to put my lunch in the fridge that morning, one of my bosses came in ranting. “Aaaaaarrrrgh!” Was the first thing I heard that morning. Sheesh! Cool your jets, people.

It was freight day, and we had to put away merchandise, so it was fairly easy to keep busy. I was also on the register all day. We had a store meeting at the end of the day, so I got paid to sit for an hour and a half, eat pizza, and listen to the store manager talk. Not too bad of a deal.

Hum. I’m tired today. I have the day off tomorrow, so I can sleep in the morning at least. Maybe I’ll go to sleep in the morning.

I think I’m going to bake a cake tomorrow. I haven’t done any baking lately.

About to go to work

February 28th, 2008 by

Last minute entry before I head off to work in ohh…. five minutes. Haha. I don’t really want to go, but I know I have to. I’ll feel better about being there once I actually get there. I just want to sleep or sit in front of my computer right now. I’m so lazy, I have to force myself to do anything, haha. Oh well.

I’ll write that webcomic review tomorrow, which is my next day off. If anyone is reading, and wants me to review a certain comic, just drop me a comment and a link, and I’ll read it.

Oh. I made myself a little banner thing:

It isn’t the best one out there, but if anyone wants me to make one for you, I’ll give it a go. :] Hum hum, time to go to work. I’ll post something later, when I get home.

London, Paris, and Y-con.

Meh, I’ll write that webcomic review later. For now, I’ll just post some of the pictures I took with my friend, Nicole, on our trip. Most of our pictures I have were taken when we took the chunnel to Paris…

Nicole and I on the train:

At the Louve:



It was cold that day!

The Eiffel Tower:



Norte Dame:


Yeoman at the London Tower:

London Tower:



Tower Bridge:

I’ll put up more once I transfer them off my other computer, haha. I’ll finish this off with two pictures from Yaoi-Con. (Yes, I know, I’m bad.)

The Seifers. o:


Aww. Hughes has a Roy plushie. <3

So here I am again, and I don’t have much to write about. I’m going to try to get in the habit of posting at least once a day, but I’m going to do a little experiment once each week. I got the idea from Tomgeeks. I’m going to write a review about something, usually a webcomic (though I might throw a book or anime in there once in a while), and post it up here. I’m going to make my first one about Kukuburi which is a pretty awesome comic. I’ll post it tonight.

So anyways, I have the day off from work today, so my plans are pretty much housework, shopping, and if I have anytime left, I’m just going to loaf around the house. I personally like that plan.

Hum. I’m really hungry right now, but I am feeling much to lazy to get up and fix myself something to eat. I’ll get it later.

I have to post some more in the RP forum I made today. There aren’t a lot of people in it and I’m in almost every thread, so when I neglect it, my friends get mad at me. I have to post in about every thread I’m in too. Ah well, I’ll get around to doing it later as well. I’m such a procrastinator, haha.

The weather out here is kind of icky today. It’s cloudy, windy, cold and drizzling. Yuck.I don’t like the rain very much, but I can deal with it when it’s not cold. I can deal with the cold when it’s not raining, but I really can’t stand the two together.

I’m still looking for people to RP with. I’m always looking for someone to RP with.

Talk at you later.

Testing, Testing, One, Two Three.

Hello, hello. My name is Ashley, and I’m new here, obviously. I haven’t blogged in a while, so be gentle, hum?

Let’s start out with the basics. I’m 21. Yeah, I know, a little old to be on a site like this, but what can I say? I guess I’m still a kid at heart. I’m taking computer classes at a local college while working full time as a cashier at a local hardware store. I live in a small town in northern California. Have all my life. Hopefully I’ll move out of here soon; this town is dull. But at the same time, I am a little afraid to move away.

I like to read, RP, write, and mess around on my computer. I read mostly fantasy and Sci-fi, but when it comes down to it, I’ll read anything that seems interesting to me. I’m not much on fanfics however. Those things can be downright disturbing at times, so I tend to shy away from those. I haven’t written anything in some time, maybe I’ll get back into it soon. I’ve been having troubles getting into the groove.

I’m generally a pretty nice person, and pretty laid back, but I know I can be real mean sometimes. But, I guess that’s pretty typical of most people. Usually, I’m a little shy at first, but I’ll open up and become a hyper basket-case around my friends.

I like to travel, but I hardly ever do. Mostly because I have little money or time. I just took a week long trip to London in December, however. It was a blast. My friend and I went together. I had to save up for a good portion of a year before I had enough, but it was definitely worth every penny. I wish I could have stayed longer.

I game, but I’m no hardcore gamer. I don’t have the money for it. Games are waaaay to expensive! If I was rich, I would sit at home and play video games and surf the web all day. I’d probably weigh a ton too, so I guess that’s an upside to being broke.

What else, what else? I like the watch animes… The last series I watched was Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni. That was the strangest, creepiest show ever. And bloody too! Sheesh. But… I did like it, so what does that say about me? I must have issues or something. Whatever. I’ll deal with it. I’m heading over to Fanime again this year. Maybe if someone is actually reading this and heading that way, we can say hello.

Hum. Not much more I can think of to write today. I had a long day at work, and I’m tired. Probably not the best condition to be a conduit for creativity. And this did turn out to be a strange, rambling introduction didn’t it? Not sure if anyone will end up reading it, but we’ll see.

So, long story short- If anyone needs a RP partner, have your people call my people. Or leave me a comment. Either way.
