wasted time
layout Info

Again, a new layout. I'm getting to where I leave one up for about two months, then change it.. well, two months is a good amount of time.. anywho, on to layout info. The layout was made with DIV layers, as always, using an image drawn by the artist Yukirin, which I found at this website. The name of the layout, Look To The Sky, was inspired by the DDR song of the same name. Also, the font used in the name is "Vladmir Script". I really like this layout, even if it lacks the number of images that my previous layouts had. Also, its style is a bit different from my other layouts. Change is good.

Metallica is stupid.

Now remember kiddies, whenever you use the letters "a" and "e", my lawyers demand you give me 500 dollars.

EDIT: I've learned that this article was, in fact, a hoax. That darn Lars is so silly. :D Hee hee. *stabs Lars Voodoo doll*

Well, tomarrow is my first day of work. Hooray. ^^ I'm looking forward to it.. I'm pretty sure I'll have a good time.. I had tons of fun working during the Harry Potter thing, so yeah. XD

Also, in other news, I have an X-Box now. o.o; My grandmother randomly bought me and my brother an X-Box. o.0; I was all "Uh.. thanks?", cause I really didn't know how to react. ^^;;; Ah well... I'll be buying Halo or something as soon as I have some cash. :3 I need a good FPS.

.. I guess thats all. o.o; Short, I know.

Okay, my webspace appears to be down. To the few people that I'm hosting, sorry. I'm working on getting stuff back up. I really don't know what happened, so yah. ^^; I'll hopefully have it back up soon. Sorry for the trouble.

EDIT: Bahahaha. The site is back up. *flex pose*

Ha! Thats right, Jay now has a job. BooYAH. The funny thing is, I really didn't even have to look. I just got a call around 9:30 or 10 this morning, and it was Lynn from WaldenBooks. In case you didn't know, I worked there last year on the Christmas shift. Well, they needed another person, so they called me. Joy. Bliss. Hotcakes. So yeah. As of this Saturday, 3:00pm, I am officially on WaldenBook's payroll again. :D

In other news, tomarrow is the first prep band rehersal. I haven't played all summer.. well, Trumpet, at least.. I've been working with piano/guitar alittle here and there.. but yeah. I need the practice. It'll be good seeing all my friends again too. Too bad most of them are gone. ;-; S'sad. Anywho, yeah. Trent's coming over tomarrow night too, which should be cool. Rock on.

PS: Got my damned cable working again.. its been down for a week now. -_- Meh.
PPS: I'm working on a new mood theme. The subject of this theme, you ask? Nothing less than 50x50 images of cropped up hentai doujinshi pics. Yessss. I'm bored. Kekekekeke.

Alrighty. In case any of you people don't know, and you prolly don't, cept for a very few.. anyway, I've started writing again... therefore, my story is now being formatted for online viewing.. simply because I need feedback/critique.. anyway, if anyone on my friends list is feeling up to it, you can find the first four chapters of my story here. Thats about.. 32 pages. I've got roughly half of what I've written online.. more will trickle in slowly. Anyway.. yeah.. if you're interested, or you've already read it, post some comments about it or something. Tell me if its okay or not. I really need some feedback, as only... three or four people have ever read the whole thing.. so.. yeah. *kawaii*

Howdy all. As I'm sure you're expecting, not much is up in the life of Jay. *GASP* Yes. I know.

Anyway, a few things have happened that are worthy of mention. Most of all, I passed Round One of the PhotoShop Tennis contest on the HBF forums. Go me. Of course, my opponent had to forfiet, due to life getting in the way.. so yeah. S'understandable though, after I heard his reasons. Good luck on all that, Butah. In other news, I decided to make onna those thar Hot Or Not things.. surprisingly, I'm an 8.6. o.o I told Kristi I would be happy if I managed to maintain a five. Go me. o.0; I still think I'm fugly though, and nothing you people say will change that. *nods sagely* I'm also worth $2,502,260.00, at least according to the humanforsale.com thing.

I went job hunting yesterday, but I had to come home, as mom called me and stuff. Kip got home yesterday, finally.. he went to the beach with dad(he was supposed to be back LAST weekend), and came home red as a lobster. o.o; It was awful. I played some games an stuff with him, and I'm proud to say that he's beginning to get into RPGs. Of course, he has no idea whats going on, story-wise.. but still.. its a good sign. :D

Ah.. thanks to Kat for the anime. ^^; I forgot to mention it in my last entry, so yah. She got me fansubs of the following: Wolf's Rain, E's Otherwise, Get Backers, and D.N.Angel. Joy and bliss. I've been watching them in what little spare time I have, and yeah.. Wolf's Rain is only getting better. Haven't really gotten into Get Backers yet, but it seems fun.

Well.. I suppose thats all. Later, people.

There really hasn't been much to say about my life for the past few days. S'sad. x.x The most interesting thing thats happened is that I heard a song on the radio that I really liked, but I don't know the name of the band/song. The singer's voice is painfully familair, and I think I'll kick myself in the ass when I find out. e.e; Anywho, here are some of the lyrics that I remember:

".. Then will come meteor showers and tidal waves.
Then will come fault lines, that cannot sit still..."

Bwah. S'driving my crazy. x.x Like I said, I'mma kick myself in the ass when I figure it out. Anyone out there in LJ Land know the song? If so, please let me know.

I've been job-hunting too. Again, no openings.. the economy here is in such a slump that there are hardly any jobs, even for the people who actually HAVE jobs. It pissed me off, because when I worked at Walden's for the Harry Potter thing last Sunday, everyone was like "You're such a good guy! So helpful! You should work here!" Yes. Kick me in the ass. Please. I like it. e.e;;; Anywho... maybe I'll find something soon.. its getting to the point where I'll take almost anything too.. I'm not picky, and I can do just about anything. I'm a jack-of-all-trades, yo.

.. Bah. Dinner. ^^; Later peoples.

First off, welcome b00kw02m to my journal. :D Hi hi Laura.

Well, I've managed to get a decent number of people on my cam page. 12 people. Whoo. Most are friends of mine, or are from the HBF forums. Speaking of forums, I've gotten back into them lately. Its nice to actually be back on the forum-whoring mode. ^^;

In other news... Drew said he's gonna be visiting Thursday. XD Hooray. Weither he actually makes it, I'm not gonna say.. but yeah. I'm looking forward to it. XD Its been monthes since I last saw that bastard.

Anywho, lunch is ready, so I've gotta take off. Update more later maybe.

Okay, first off, welcome xecchixshmeffx, 1onestar, and starsandspikesx to my journal. ^^ *gives map and tourist info*

Well, today has been kinda fun actually. ^^ I went to work at the bookstore this morning, cause of the new Harry Potter realease. I worked up on a stage and annouced stuff. There was a costume contest, jelly bean taste test(I actually liked the Black Pepper flavour.. ^^;), a trivia contest, and an art contest. I wanted to start a karioke(sp?) contest though.. ^^; I still had lotsa fun though. XD I was on TV and junk. Whooo. :P But yeah, one little girl did a really good job on the art contest. o.o; I mean, it was on par with someone three times her age. She's got some serious talent, and I hope she uses it for something. XD So yeah. I got new manga today, and a limited edition Harry Potter hat. ^^; Joy. The hat was free, so yah. :3

I finally signed up on the HBF forums.. seems like a pretty cool place.. problem is, I'm out of the forum-whore-mode.. and I have to get back into that.. till then, I'll just look like a dumbass. ^^; Ah well.. anyways, I have to get back to drawing my avatar... I almost finished it last night, but mom made me go to bed. e.e;

new manga!Collapse )

Not a real update

Yeah, like the subject says, this isn't a real update. I'm wondering if anyone out there in LJ-Land has a webcam page they'd like to submit to my cam page. If you have a cam and you're feeling nice, just post a comment with your cam address, a link addy(email or website), and a name you want on the page. If you don't give me a name, I'll default to your LJ name. Thanks bunches to anyone who helps out. ^^

Yeah, this is pathetic, but I need cams for my measly little portal. I only have four so far, counting mine. ^^;
