well after all that DDoS debacle.


ganked from Sarah who ganked it from Nena. )

So in other news the shop where I work at had a window smashed in last night at about 1am. It was closed for all of today. Idk when we'll be open again, I really need to check. But seriously, I've said to Amanda before that the crime rate's been getting worse and worse recently, ever since after the snow.

Ah well, time to hit the hay.
hellzabeth: (>Konata: ah well you see)
What has Pidge been doing? What Pidge always does when she's stressed!


This post was brought to you by the letter H, for Hetalia and Homestuck )
hellzabeth: (>Konata: Cry)
You turned your back on me and walked away
without saying a single word…
In my wavering heart, I screamed like a child
“Don’t go... don’t leave... hey...”

I swear that is all that is needed of that song to make me tear up.

So I was in a terrible upset mood and From Y to Y helped me cry it out. Then Cande posted more of her MM spin off fic. (Which you should all be reading go do it now.) And then Oz bought my fem!England a paid account. So I feel better and love the both of you. <3333

I slept for 15 hours last night holy shit, went to bed at 10 and only woke up at 1pm the next day. What is morning. That might have been why I was so easily upset yesterday, and why I was so snappish with everyone. Sorry Plurk buddies! My humor gets quite mean when I'm tired.

Managed to make it through Great Gran's birthday party without being clipped around the ear for anything too snappish, though! I do love my gran. 92 and she may yet outlive us all. The woman lives on her own despite having a replacement hip, beating cancer three times and raising four kids, ten grandkids and 15 great grandkids. INDESTRUCTIBLE.

Half an hour to go until I catch the bus to Nena's to give her her present (FINALLY).

Hopefully today won't be as bad.

Edit: In other news (heh), Himaruya remembered Mr Newspaper! My god he's the cutest thing. Little freckles and that hat... I want to cosplay him at a con so I'll have an excuse to take pictures of everyone. |D;; /priorities

Urgh I FINALLY finished writing my practice essay to standards I wanted myself to achieve. I hate doing things without a deadline, it just means I look at it and then go back and keep deleting it and starting again until it's "perfect" and it still isn't. Fml.

Oh well, moar meme time.

Regional Dialect Meme )
hellzabeth: (Default)
Twas the Night Before Christmas, and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, but the computer mouse

The stockings were hung by the fire with glee
In hopes there'd be presents they'd wake up to see
It was perfect, a postcard portrait, except
For the young girl upstairs, who still had not slept.

Many nights in a row, she'd retired at 5
That's morning, not evening, oh how'd she survive
her family's gathering, tomorrow at ten,
That's AM not PM, when she normally slept then.

The best answer, it seemed was to turn off the lappy,
try her best to shut down, so she wouldn't feel crappy.
But alas, it seeed her best efforts were naught,
And she knew there'd be trouble, if she were caught.

She sat up and waited, and moaned in despair,
For she could hear mother ascending the stair.
In a panic she rushed, and dived for her bed,
hoping dear mummy would check Fluff instead.

The footsteps walked past her, and she let out a sigh,
when heavier footfalls suddenly came by.
She froze in her bed, and squeezed shut her eyes
A burglar on Christmas? What a horrid surprise.

He wasn't that quiet, the intruder bloke,
He seemed to have something caught in his throat.
His coughs sounded like chuckles, but that can't be right
Surely this man was looking for a fight.

She picked up the broom lying on the floor,
Moving to stand just behind her door,
Calming her breathing, she tried to be zen,
Tried to imagine she was a slayer of men.

"Ho ho ho" said the burglar, his voice strangely kind,
The girl thought of ninjas, and with that in mind,
She opened her door, and crept down the hall,
To find the burglar and mum having a ball.

"Do stay for a cuppa, you work ever so hard."
said mother, handing the strange man a card.
The rotund man smiled, from ear to ear
"Worry not my dear woman, I'll see you next year."

The young girl woke up the next morning in bed
with images of the dream going round in her head
She rolled on her side, and was startled to see
The broom, in her bed, right next to her knee.

I was kind of going through a "dark" phase (that only lasted a couple of months) and needed a new username for LJ because my old one was cluttered and... old. The whole reason I got a new one was so I could see the locked post on the Hetalia comm... go figure...

Ho hum, what to have... )

Need to get England's paid account renewed before he bitches me out about being stuck on girl-only icons forever (since that's all they left him with lol). Also, consider looking in to apping bb!England elsewhere at some point because it's fun and I miss writing stuff like Vincere. But only after exams.

Snow scheduled for tomorrow, here's hoping. By which I mean the rest of the country has already had snow (Scotland's completely buried) and I feel cheated. Just because the valley I live in has it's own climate due to the South Downs...

My room keeps heating up too much so I have to open the windows for the -3 air to come in, but then it gets to cold and I close them. Rinse and repeat. First world problems.

Dear BitTorrent,
Why do you only ever download the files I'm NOT all antsy about getting?

Dear Pidge
Laughing at your pain,

Dear BitTorrent,
Don't be an ass, I asked you to download Zetsubou Sensei half a year ago and you only decide to start seeding now I want to watch Durarara all the way through again? How about fuck you too! I thought the whole point of having you was to get downloads easier than DL-ing them!
Pissed off,

Now I'm downloading the Professor Layton movie for you. Happy?
Letting up a bit,

I guess that's a little better. But I still wanted Durarara since streaming is being a bitch with my connection. But you still haven't even touched Miku's Giving Day 39 Live Concert.
Feeling forgiving,

Find torrents with more seeds, and we'll talk.

That's a lot harder than it sounds. It's getting more and more difficult to find Torrents that seed at all, with all of the crack downs on trusted sites going on. Back-door sites are dangerous and worrysome so I don't want to use those, and most of the things I'm downloading off you are impossible to get in my country. America locks me out of a lot of streaming sites now. It's very frustrating.
Getting desperate,

I don't have a solution. I'm a computer program. You've given me a voice because you're frustrated and to be honest, this is all getting a bit weird. And creepy.
Not going to reply to the next one,

Pay me a million pounds and we'll see. B|

And yes, I get withdrawal after a few days without internet. It sucks.

Anyway! I'm making Christmas presents for everyone in the form of friendship bracelets!

Here is a link to all the colours I have, so pick anywhere between 2 and 7, and I'll get cracking making them!

Put your picks of colours (from 2 and 7 please!) in the comments, and then PM/IM me your address and I'll send them! \o/ And it shall be a happy Christmas for all!

1. You can only say Innocent or Guilty for each question.

2. You are not allowed to explain anything unless someone messages you and asks! (So if you want an explanation, ask!)

3. You must be honest!

hellzabeth: (Vocaloid: Gumi 1)
Ahhh finally I found a Vocaloid with my voice range...

Though it seems that since she's new she doesn't have very many quality songs. Not sure I like the ones like 16 Bit Warz, but her cover of Romeo and Cinderella made me squee a little. The programmer got it spot on, perfect pitch.

But it seems like she's hard to handle; it's pretty hit or miss. Very. Very. Miss.

She seems to do a lot of duets with Gakupo. I have to admit his voice does work nicely with hers. orz but their signature colours clash horribly... orange and green with purple and black... Plus the Luka/Gakupo shippers hate them together... guys, they're computer programs, seriously. =___=;;; They don't even technically have personalities.

And as usual her version of "The Disappearence of... [Vocaloid name here]" did not fail to make me tear up a little. Noooo don't delete herrrrr ;A;

And even though it was Miku's involvement that got it noticed, no Gumi related post is complete without the glorious, the wonderful, the utterly mad Matryoshka.

Okay, coming clean; this post is basically me bookmarking GUMI songs (and of course advertising her pretty voice haha she doesn't get enough love). I have some sort of thing against cluttering up my bar with loads of bookmarks, because it means the ones I use regularly get pushed off screen or buried and I am just that level of lazy in that I can't be bothered to find them.

... sometimes I wish I wasn't so shy about entering new fandoms. I mean, I lurked Hetalia for 2 years before writing fic or even commenting. I want to find more people who I can spaz about pretty songs with...

... /sigh

I guess in the end my social anxiety issues are always going to get in the way, even on the internet.

And suddenly it's 5C and I can see my breath and I forgot to leave the house with a coat on when Nena dragged me out. Fffffuuuuu--

On the other hand, Cande and I got to write epic fight scenes tonight in For There Is Nothing Lost, and that was fun if now bawwww worthy because ;A; poor England... and the Winter court are rather unsympathetic people. Cold shoulder and all that.

I swear to god as soon as I finish this post I am going to go write FT because this is getting silly, I've been putting it off long enough, this thing needs to end B|

And then after that I can focus on Monster Mash and FTINL and maybe do some more to Centre of the World because Nena has been giving me scary looks... and speaking of scary, Nena, we should finish more of Yours. Aside from that one scene we did where we were clearly both having bad days because that was brutal >>;;

So many projects on the go, so little time.

And in the end, I gave up on NaNo. There's just too much stuff going on, I can write for billy-o but it won't go anywhere. >>;; Oh well, maybe next year?

Oh! And I shall also mention that I am currently babysitting the most adorable little 1 year old in the whole world ;A; the babydere is off the charts.

College again, this time working on Personal Statement. It's a lot harder to sing one's own praises than it is to self-depreicate, oddly.

I reeeeeeeeeeeeally hate UCAS, I should have listened to Imi when she warned us two years prior that it was a bitch.... orz;;

On the bright side we've managed to tame the internet's fail down to a manageable turns-off-randomly-once-a-day, rather than doesn't-work-ever.

On the un-bright side I managed to forget that UCAS application work day is on Friday not Thursday, so I'm here for very little reason. I mean, I'll still work on my personal statement but... orz;; so much fail what is my life.

I think the worst thing about it might be trying to get it up to the 4000 character limit but not over it, if you see what I mean. The little bar at the bottom of the screen only tells you how many words you're writing, not characters. I keep getting 100 under or 50 over and it's frustrating trying to keep it coherent but within limits.

Also there are faeries all over my notes and I blame Cande.
hellzabeth: (>Konata: aa sou)
Le sigh. I have been soooo busy lately. Unsure whether to write another chapter of FT now or do it tomorrow. But tomorrow I'm running around sorting out UCAS stuff...

Blarg. orz;;;

At least I can cheer myself up watching the Commonwealth games. For all that India is kind of failing at hosting it, it doesn't mean I don't get to see some very nice eye candy.

Mmm... 100m sprinters... and swimmers... and wrestlers....

Also yay Dave's showed up again in Homestuck, that makes me happy. I sometimes forget he's my favourite out of the Kids. Terezi will forever be my favourite Troll. But Dave, oh Dave.

You now own all the stock markets.

All of them.

Alright meme time.

More Tales from Behind the Till )


It is absolutely tipping it down outside and I got very wet coming home because I was a stupid bint and wore my summer shoes. They are very un-waterproof and now my feet are wet and cold, but it's okay because I have the extra blanket on my duvet and Kumajiro sitting on my feet.

Please don't ask why I have a life-sized baby polar bear plushie.

That story is long and involves the shattering of childhood illusions of Santa being real.

My pirate hat for Iggy came today! I already have the feathers from Hobbycraft so it's going to look awesomesauce when I get around to attaching them properly.

I was looking at the miserable golfers on the front of the papers at work, standing under brollies because it's raining in Wales. All I can say to that is that they're morons for holding an outdoor event in the rainiest country that doesn't have a rainforest. It's Wales. It is always raining in Wales.

The world is full of silly people and I get to watch them on TV.
