I HOPE YOU GUYS HAD A GOOD CHRISTMAS IF YOU CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAY. I would've updated sooner, but I literally only just managed to break away and get to my computer at 2:45 in the morning because we had a late Christmas since my Dad was working all day. We just finished playing really violent card game called Spoons, and to anyone who is familiar with the game will know how I came away with a bruised nail and a cut and how I also wrestled my sister to the floor for a spoon. It was pretty good to do a later Christmas though! It meant we weren't opening presents till like 10pm so it wasn't all over and done in the morning and it made the day seem a lot longer and relaxed.

I got a lot of nice things including the first Termeraire book which I've been wanting my own copy for a while, some textbooks for school, some shirts, and some cute boots! I also got Green Day Rock Band (which now makes me think of [livejournal.com profile] deltashade and [livejournal.com profile] artgasming WITHOUT FAIL because of that epic afternoon we had) but my mom didn't realise that you needed instruments BUT THAT'S COOL because I got a bit of money from some other relatives. Anyone know where I can get cheap ass rock band equipment in the UK? I looked on amazon but couldn't find anything under £140 HRRG

My mother got the best present from my grandmother. None of us understand it at all. It is a small piece of wood, with two frogs on it. One of them is licking a butterfly and the word ZAP! is pictured above them in glitter font. Here is a picture of it:

NONE OF US KNOW WHAT IS IS? It's like the size of a cup coaster, and doesn't have any hanging parts or anything and there is only one of it, and my mother sort of looked at it and was like UM...

I love my nan so much she is so random sometimes.

But yeah! It was a relaxed but nice Christmas.

I HOPE YOU GUYS HAD A GOOD ONE <3 I am going to pass out now.

Here's some photos from this years Halloween for people who wanted to see what I looked like :D


Overall it was a pretty kick ass Halloween, and there was more candy, merriment and fake blood than you can shake a stick at and one of our couches is now conspicuously covered in glitter. We're not sure how that happened.

man the world hates me right now.

The first bit of creative juices that I've gotten flowing in literally a month or two and my tablet just dies on me.

It has been acting up for the past couple times i've been using it, and today it just refused to do anything. The light was flashing saying that it was on, but the pen did not register when I touched the tablet. I thought the battery had run out so I changed it, and there was no difference. The wires are sort of frayed where they go into the actual tablet (its an Aiptek Slim 600U) so I figured that its just decided to die on me.

cut for parental/job hunting RAEG )

Anyways, now that raeg is off my chest, I do have an old wacom graphire but I think its broken as thats the reason I replaced it with the Aiptek so I'll probably never actually get to draw this picture tonight (and by draw I mean ink and colour on the computer. I actually drew it on paper first). I suppose if I use the money from the manga sales to pay for a new tablet I could get away with getting an A4 wacom bamboo, but I'm not sure since they are like £170. EDIT: Oh wait, the A5 ones are £170. My mistake. *sobs*

Does anyone want to recommend graphic tablets to me? I want an A4 sized one (normal printing paper size) and I'm on a tight budget, but suggestions would be nice.

I'm back from that mini holiday with the rents, and its only proved to me just how out of place I feel whenever I go online anymore. Its like I'm an outsider now, looking in on groups I used to be part of or watching old friends leaving for newer ones. I guess I didn't realize how much it was actually hurting me that it took four days of not speaking or seeing anyone to notice.

I just feel that don't fit in anywhere anymore.

ignore me, its probably just a PHASE or something 8|a BLEH. BUT YEAH. Holiday was okay! We went to the beach and I flew a kite and pretended to be an otter for two hours by smashing shells on stones. Hell yes. Other than that we didn't really do much. I started a new game on leafgreen (charmander starter named Axel) but I only got to viridian forest before my battery died 8( I was hunting pikachu too 8(

On a slightly lighter note, I made dinner for my parents tonight since my mom needed a break. I made sushi at my fathers request as well as ginger chicken udon and chicken yakitori. It was really tasty and my mom was all OMG I AM SO PROUD THAT YOU CAN COOK AND NOW I KNOW YOU WONT STARVE. It made me laugh.

The cherry blossom in the garden is just starting to bloom too.. but I'm going to miss it by days I think. It usually blooms around my birthday week which is next week, and I'll be at uni for that. 8(

ALSO: I've had this weird thing for a few days now. Its like a sore throat, except theres no pain. Its just swollen - to the point that it feels like its closing up - and its really hard to breathe. I don't have a fever, a headache or any other ailments, just a swollen throat. Halp? D:

Just a quick update to tell you all that I'm safely at home and not only did I play Mario Kart on the Wii with my mom till 11pm, but me and my rents just spent the last hour and a half singing really really badly to old 80's hits. Really badly. And really loudly. I have no longer got my voice.

Fuck yes we're so cool.

I definitely needed this break. Tomorrow I get to make a list of all my manga books and email them to a store in London who is going to buy them off of me. Yay \o\


(sob i hate using internet without firefox spellcheck ;;)
