ICONS!

I have just renewed my account and also gained a heap of icon space.

I am going nuts with SPN icons, namely 7.17 ones I picked up recently.

Such as this one.


In other things, I R tired. Liek Whoa. I stayed up last night and did the shopping in the morning, and was hoping to catch Wrath of the Titans before it left the cinemas, but I started getting dizzy in the supermarket, so movie didn't happen. I will probably have to do a late viewing - the movie's only on at 6:30 PM for the next two nights, though I haven't looked at Monday's timetable. I'm not that patient though, I'd like to go see it tomorrow.

I did sleep after I got home today, but only for something like 4 hours and I'm still feeling the effects but I can't go back to sleep. I hope I'm better tomorrow afternoon.

Huh

They've changed the style of cut-tags.

In light of new features LJ has implemented (telling people what city a commenter is in, even to the extent of stating the comment was from [X location] but now they are at [X location]), I feel I need to inform everyone that I have IP tracking on, but have reset it only to track Anonymous users.

Also, I took a look and my journal didn't show the city info, but I changed the setting anyway.

Still, I am not leaving LJ as long as Fandom is not leaving LJ. I have tried to function other sites before but it's too irritating doing so.

Edit: They are removing the feature. I am leaving IP settings on just Anon anyway.

Finally got around to putting the damn thing in - icon is of my Sims 3 version of my Mimi sim. Hair is a custom style, and the game finally has decent fat, not like S2 whose fat sims are what I think of as still being fairly thin (hey, I'm fat, really fat, so fat I'm having surgery in two days to help with weight loss, so I know what is really fat and what is just a bit over "thin" and therefore irritating when girls who are like that complain about being "fat").

Also: I have World Adventures. And Riverview.

After a couple of false starts (the first one was a real irrit, since it was a whole night's play I lost), I tried downloading the game patches and got them through and loaded. I went to the Sims 3 site and tried downloading one of the free items and got it through, so I did something ridiculously ambitious, I started a download of a 95 MB file.

Riverview is a whole new town, downloadable on the website, presumably after one registers their copy of the base game. It also has at least one familiar character from S2 - Don Lothario. It's his house my Riverview savegame is set in, but I haven't done much because I was having a little problem with my mods not working.

Meanwhile I have started a new Sunset Valley game, starting out with settling in [livejournal.com profile] agiftedmind's pair of sisters (she remade her self-sim while over, doing some sewing, adding a sim of one of her pet OCs as the self-sim's sister). I want to use those two to check out the tourist areas.

New default icon - Mort and Bella, making out.

For those who don't know, there was a Mortimer and Bella Goth in both Sims 1 and Sims 2. I never really took to them in either game - too busy in S1 playing Silmarillion and Final Fantasy sims, and FF, KH and Transformers sims in S2 (though I did play Cassandra, Mort and Bella's adult daughter, a bit and had Jenova seduce old Morty before I lost my first game).

Like I have said previously, this game revealed that as teens, these two are quite good-looking, so it's safe to say they are officially my Sims OTP now.

Another remnant of Final Fantasy gone in favour of Transformers.

Well huh.

I got sent a virtual gift, over on [livejournal.com profile] majinbakahentai, and it's made me take a bit of a look at the stats between the two journals. By far, I have now used this journal more than I did that one. That is partly because I have now been using this one for longer than I did that one, but also this journal has my huge, messy fanfic memories collection, which is now at 2176 pages of TF fics (a lot of that is chapters, of course), as well as 1306 of Doctor Who and Torchwood, and 902 assorted Final Fantasy pages that haven't been sorted into archival posts.

Baseline stat comparision:

[livejournal.com profile] majinbakahentai: 707 journal entries
[livejournal.com profile] mimi_sardinia: 1067 journal entries

Majin Baka was started in Febuary of 2003 and I mostly discontinued using it in early 2005.

Mimi Sardinia was started in October 2004, didn't really start being used until early 2005, and is still in use.

Overall, that means this journal has roughly two years more usage than Majin Baka does. It probably helps that I keep this one a paid account, that alone is an incentive to keep using it, just to get my money's worth.

ARRGH!!!!

I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY!!!

Put through my LJ order to update my journal, but I didn't realise I didn't have enough until after I'd checked out the "shopping cart". That means I can't cancel it, but I can't pay it either.

And I can't do anything either - I can't add anything to the order here on LJ because it's been checked out. Maybe something can be done on PayPal, but I don't want to beg for help on it. I'll just have to wait until tomorrow, after I've been to the hospital again, so I can put more money in Mum's account.

I could always hope the AUD goes back up a couple of points and bring the price back down, but that is a long shot.


ETA: I'm gonna go play DOOM.

MEMO!

I got an... interesting notice from LJ. [livejournal.com profile] admiralmemo, if you haven't noticed, I use this journal, not [livejournal.com profile] majinbakahentai! Don't go nudging that one because it's not gonna make me post on it! If you have a problem with it, defriend that journal!
mimi_sardinia: (CatEarth MoonMouse)
I am doing a major friends cut.

The main reason is that there are a number of people on my personal journal filter that I simply don't read anymore. Either they have wandered off into something other than what I'd find of any interest, or I have.

Not that it makes much difference for anyone reading my journal, I keep mostly everything public anyway.

I'm also clearing out some of the communities I have listed - I have a lot of comms that I just don't read anymore so I am pulling out of a lot of the fandom fic ones. Like I said, interests have wandered off into the big and metallic.

Yey Gip!

mimi_sardinia: (Everything I know I learned from FF)
After my recent icon thingies I went and did a bit of extra sorting (and am still not finished) to move some of my unused out and some new ones in, including quite a few FFIII and Transformers '07 ones.
mimi_sardinia: (*Squee!*)
My anonymous donor filled up my icons! Thankye Mousie!

With this, I may be able to delay paying my journal a week so I can do something about my chair - it'll probably only be a temporary solution (such as buying another cheap one from Ikea) but that would be better than what I have at the moment.

I'll have to see how my money scrapes up next week.



Oh, and pointless FFIII commentary: I am rather happy to know that Spoiler spoiler spoiler )

Why is it that plot goes by real fast? It's like I just got my pre-Dragon Mountain levelling done, a turn around twice (or to be exact, climbed the mountain, visited the Gnomes and the Vikings, got a ship and got into the inner sea and visited the accessible spots) and now I have to level again so I can buy better armour for my team (I also have access to gis - monk clothing - so I can consider training everyone up as monks.

Currently I have everyone trained up to at least Job Level 10 in Freelancer, Red Mage and Warrior with selective training per person in Black and White Mages - I'm currently working up Ingus's White Mage level, I didn't level him up in that before Dragon Mt. and since I found a gi I'm starting with Monk training, on Arc.

This time I'll push everyone up to 30 - because Luneth got up to 26 in Freelancer just in all the stuff before the first lot of job classes were made available, and the last time I looked at his level in Red Mage he was 16 and he's added another level or two since then and Ingus is a level or two behind him.

Icon Woe

Okay, so I have lost most of my icons.

I know I paid my journal early last year but I didn't recall that until I started getting the warning emails saying my user pics were wearing out. I can't do anything about it until next week at the earliest and as much as I'd welcome a gift I don't expect it, especially after all the Boldthrough crapola putting everyone off paying LJ for anything.

I think however I will pay up this journal again but the pick and miss way my icons have been deactivated is a little annoying.
mimi_sardinia: (This Is A Nose)
We have a serial adder folks! [livejournal.com profile] 0mghi2fatotaku - and their only post is insulting "fat" otaku.

I recognized a couple of people in their flist, [livejournal.com profile] ____ero__sennin, [livejournal.com profile] __fantine, [livejournal.com profile] alba_aulbath, [livejournal.com profile] cup_ramen_chaos, [livejournal.com profile] cygna_hime, [livejournal.com profile] darknessdivine, [livejournal.com profile] darknessneko, [livejournal.com profile] gay_vampire, [livejournal.com profile] i_got_spunk, [livejournal.com profile] jenova_synth, [livejournal.com profile] leikomgwtfbbq, [livejournal.com profile] lulu_nobody, [livejournal.com profile] luna_hoshino, [livejournal.com profile] midnight12181, [livejournal.com profile] misskalloway, [livejournal.com profile] powercorrupts, [livejournal.com profile] serinance and [livejournal.com profile] sixverstein - to pick out those I know from around the various comms.


I have to wonder if they're talking out of their ass - which wouldn't surpise me with a troll - but really, how many of the people they've added are fat? I mean the label fits for me, but I don't see why I should pretend any different anyway - hell, my Mimi sim is fat (not that I consider the figure fat sims have as really fat anyway)!


Anyway, on a different matter, got my games laybuy off a day early and went to watch Transformers again. It fun (in the sarcastic way) negotiating public holiday bus timetables, what with the Ekka being on (a fair run every year here in Brisbane). The games I got off laybuy are Phoenix Wright and Final Fantasy III.

Laybuy

Dec. 14th, 2006 01:10 pm
mimi_sardinia: (*Squee!*)
I have a new laybuy. A sizable one at that.

It includes:

* Tetris DS
* Nintendogs Dalmations
* 15 In 1 DS Lite Accesory Pack
* White Nintendo DS Lite

Yes, you read that last one right. I now have my DS Lite on laybuy.


As I said, it's not a small laybuy, even with a deposit of $50 I am still to pay $242.35 on it. The DS and the Nintendogs were on a deal for $189.95 (pretty good considering DS Lites are going for $188 at EB Games), and I wanted the accesory pack and Tetris simply because, well I love Tetris and I might as well get the accesories straight up.


Meanwhile, this new Update layout is going to take a bit to get used to!
mimi_sardinia: (Shota)
Just went over and took a look around the flist on my other journal... wow, reminder of old fandom stuff eh?

I don't think I'm ready to go back and read LotR stuff again (I have found that after some time away I am willing to go visit an old fandom - if only briefly), or at least not [livejournal.com profile] morgana_avalon's writing. Hell, if Orchyd Constyne was still writing LotR I don't think I'd go back at the moment for even her writing!

On the other hand, I may go poke around [livejournal.com profile] stubenfliege's journal and see what her latest fic is about. I know it's an Apocalyptica RPS and I am marginally interested. Took me half a second to remember who "Ansta" was though.

In things closer to home: I have to thank [livejournal.com profile] lazzchan for a new pairing-threesome-whateversome, post-KH2 Riku/Sora/Roxas, specifically with Sora and Roxas sharing the one body and implied Riku/Roxas from the pre-KH2 period.
It's like Riku gets two boyfriends in one. XD


Also, found another fandom that, at those point, will probably only rate as a minor one to distract me in times of low ficcage in FF - Homestar Runner. I have, after a couple of recent visits to the website, developed a fondness for Homsar. He's cute and he talks weird, and once he turned into a moderately hot girl in an imaginary senario. XDD


I also want shota. Someone write some FFXII creepy shota incest? Two guess who I want to see in it. *poings at icon*
mimi_sardinia: (Where will you be...)
So, there's a slightly worrying situation on [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants.

A self-confessed lurker, [livejournal.com profile] football_girl came on and posted a rant that escenially consisted of "Fanficrants is bad! People should be allowed to write fanon, OOC and general badfic if they want!".

Of course, predicably, the community gathered to comment with their objections and general comments.

Well now there's a new post - comment-locked (which is against comm rules) and full of "Ha ha! You did just what I thought you'd do!".

What's worrying however is the tone of "Now I have material, I'm going to do something really nasty!" going on in it - with lines like:

There was a reason I posted it, and you'll all find out soon enough why if you keep your eyes open on LJ.

and

I never approved of communities like this,

and

So, my job is done. Thank you for contributing. I enjoyed it. Keep your eyes open. I'm sure you're just going to love it. xD

Also, I apologise if this actually long-term hurt someone.




Somehow I think the comm has a brat with a grudge out to get it deleted by LJ Abuse - or something like that, but what worries me is that will LJ Abuse see that they deliberately triggered said "abuse" that was levelled at them?
mimi_sardinia: (Zexion pantsu)
With the phonebill paid in full as of yesterday I have taken the liberty of using most of the rest of this week's pay to pre-emptively deal with my journal. I have not only paid it up for a full year but I now have 108 icons! (I think the 8 are loyalty rewards - ones I get for maintaining a paid account.)

I won't do much at the moment in the way of uploads because I need a nap but I'm sure I'll be busy, once I'm home from work, going through my icon collection and picking out what I want to post.


Random thought: This icon makes me think of Zexion going lingerie shopping for Lexaeus. (And that is totally an allusion to another icon - one I'll post later!)

Icon...

I'm going to change my default icon.
mimi_sardinia: (More Fun Than A Hole In The Head)
Just had a bit of a rethink on one part of the hybrid mutant plotbunny I posted a few days ago... just what would someone get for deprevation of liberty? )


Meanwhile, random note: My journal layout is playing silly buggers. Seems to be acting normal again.
