New layout

Yes, I know that I had new Friends and Calendar pages not long ago, but I was sorting out my computer last night, and these wolf photos were crying out to be made into layouts. So, here I am celebrating all that is wolfy! *g*

Am slightly bored, so am doing a Meme that [ profile] mental_midget did.

Oh, am also looking into getting a microphone for my laptop so I can join in the with reading of fic (and I can think of all sorts of other groovy stuff to do with a microphone). Now, I found this one here. Can anyone who knows anything about this stuff let me know if it's any good? *g* Thank you!

So, I've been a busy little bee. Just finished the second and third books of the Tamora Pierce series I've been reading. My rant over pairings was not completely justified. The reason being )

I spent all night reading them. They're so good that I actually didn't read DV14 last night! I know, shock, horror! I don't know what came over me!

Today, things did not go so well. My alarm didn't go off, so I missed my lecture in the morning. Then when I did get up, I managed to burn my first piece of toast and set off the smoke alarm, and nearly burnt the second - I had to cut a bit of it off to make it edible.

Then, I realised that I was going to make a manip for my Calendar's page. Fortunately, the screencap that I wanted didn't need much manipping, and it only took me about 15 mintues to do it. It's up. I also changed the colour code for my Friends page, (I changed it to a Web colour) but it doesn't seem to be working. However, [ profile] loriel_eris said it looks fine on another computer, so maybe it's these ones here.

Am sitting next to the charming and quite scrumptious Russell at the moment. Yumm!

Sorry for the random comment, but I don't actually want him to see it! *g* How embarrassing would that be! And don't say anything [ profile] kyizi!

Well, I've changed my Friends layout. I've been wanting to put this up for a while, but didn't want to get rid of Orli because I like it so much.

The only thing is, the colours don't exactly match up, so I'm going to have to go back on my computer and try to find the code again. I'm sure I got them the same, but maybe I didn't. If I did and it's because it's not a web colour or something, then I'm going to have to fiddle. Grr!

Still, it's pretty!

And, huzzah! Draco Veritas 14; Part 1is up. Hurrah!!! Guess what I'm going to be doing tonight!

And, what's more, my friend's lent me more Tamora Pierce books, so I'll be reading all night long! Hurray!

On another note, I'm rereading Order of the Pheonix. I don't know why, I guess I'm a glutton for punishment or something. But it's really annoying me, because I've got to the bit where Kreacher's gone missing and Hermione's a little worried, and so is Harry, because he says that house elves can leave their home if they really want (eg: Dobby), and even Sirius is a little worried, but they don't think much of it! Argh! It's *really* annoying! I'm not sure if I want to read more, because I'll just get so mad. The only good thing about OotP is that Ginny's much better in it - she's no longer a wimp drooling over Harry. And Gred and Forge are brill as well.


Blah again

Yes, I'm bored. I've just finished going over [ profile] loriel_eris's CV for her, and changing a few things, and now I have to hang around for an hour, doing nothing. Don't you hate it when you're on the Internet and you really can't be bothered doing anything, but as soon as you get home, you can think of all sorts of things you could have done.

What's more, I can't even go and download any fic, since I don't have Frankie with me. Grr!

Hmm, speaking of fic, I'm in the middle of reading Tamora Pierce books, so I might go and see if I can find any decent fanfic.

Am also hoping to have a new layout for my Friends page for tomorrow. I've got some ideas floating about in my head, I've just got to find time to do something about them tonight, in between doing the ironing and watching ER!

EDITTED: spoilers for Tamora Pierce books )

Well, I was in an Orli mood, and I was getting a little tired of the orange Gandalf, so here's a new layout for you all to enjoy! :)

I'm off shopping tomorrow, to see what exciting stuff I can get in the January sales! *g*

Yes, I managed to upload the right one, now!

And, I think it looks good, at least on 800x600, which is what these uni computers are. You'll have to let me know if it looks really stupid on 1024x768, and if so, how I can centre the stupid thing using over-rides!

[ profile] notasalmon couldn't show me how to use over-rides, I ended up sort of snitching the html from one of [ profile] ignited's livejournal layouts, and then changing it so it would fit into the over-ride thing!

Still, I'm learning how to change the colours now!

[ profile] kyizi and I went to the cinema last night and saw The Medallion and LXG. )

Today, I brought my laptop into uni, because I had the image of the tickets that we're selling for our ceilidh at the beginning of December on it. Also, I had it as layers in Photoshop, which was a good job, since I had to change stuff on it. I have to say, I felt really strange with my laptop out in the Common Room!

It also meant that I could upload my new layout, since I hadn't put it on Frankie (my USB drive).

I've also updated my website, which is now nearly working properly, I do believe. Basically, at the moment, it's just sitting there, looking pretty, but fingers crossed, soon there'll actually be stuff on it! :D

Well, in honour of the Two Towers coming out, I've changed the layout, except I'm a little annoyed, because I uploaded the wrong one! I've got a much better one.

I'll upload it later today, after my very useless supervision! :)

Okay, I bought a domain name from doteasy yesterday, and I managed to FTP an index page up, but the Internet is claiming that my website, which is, by the way, doesn't exist! I'm getting very peeved with it!

On another note (about which I'm annoyed), I can't find anywhere to download either the Troy trailer or the Extra interview with Daniel and Emma. These stupid uni computers don't have Real Player, and even if they did, they don't have sound cards!

On a slightly more cheerful note, I have plans for a new layout for livejournal. I don't know when it's going to go up, since I've already got another planned, which will probably be unveiled next week, but it's a Draco one. I know other people are doing Draco ones, which will probably lead me to delay putting mine up, once it's done. It does mean I get to do lots of screencaps, though!

I'd better go and do some work now. Grr!

So, I managed to see Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and I have to say, Johnny Depp is looking better and better each time I see him! And, I managed to do a half decent layout, hence the lovely picture above! [ profile] notasalmon was right, I do my best manipping early in the morning/very late at night. Of course, it meant that I didn't get enough sleep and had trouble in lectures today, but that's not the point!

And, it means that I haven't got any more report written, but hey, I'll blitz it tonight! And look at pretty pictures of Sark! Yumm!

Woohoo! I actually managed to understand how this works!

Obviously, I just got a photo from Alias-Media, and haven't actually done anything to it, since I'm at uni and can't manip anything here, but it was an experiment, that, after a few tries, worked! I'm so chuffed! The only thing is, now I'm going to go home and have to work, instead of working on a layout for this place! :(
