Changes and Updates (from the Madness world)

Well I’ve not been updating this properly so I’m going to try and get back into this.

Firstly, I have turned off the Twitter feed into my blog. I thought it was alright to start off with but really it’s more or less just blog spam and I think it keeps me from posting properly in my blog so I apologize for that. I am trying to get back into a scheduled routine, Yoga, writing, baths, bed. Going to bed late is bad for me. T_T

Secondly, NaNo starts next month so get excited for more updates about my writing. I’m actually hoping to take this opportunity and write a full story and see if I can get it published. With how things are going in my life it actually seems like the best course of action and I’ve been world building an RPG that I will be using as the primary setting.

Thirdly I wanted to show everyone my awesome video! I am NO singer but I had fun and that’s all that counts so I will warn you now that any comments on how bad of a singer I am I will delete it immediately. It was done to have some fun. It is a Spoof of Amanda Palmer’s Leeds United song.

Lets see what else. My daughter is doing well in school although I’m having problems keeping my kids from fighting and keeping my sanity. I am easily frustrated and not having a significant other to share the responsibilities with makes my life really frustrating. I mean I have mum to help offset it (and she really does help and put up with my bratty kids)  but it’s really hard all around. Ijust need to work on breathing and patience. Hopefully Yoga will help, I need something to help center me and I think that it will help me with my patience issues. I hate being impatient but I’m having a hard time not being impatient.

In the coding world I’ve been developing a Character mod for IPB3. It’s working very well so far I’m adding and fixing things as I go. My current project is custom fields but I haven’t started working on it yet but I think it will be relatively easy, especially to override the UserInfoPane info.

——————————————————-

Today’s dilemma is something that I’m not sure should concern me. I’ve been wanting to create another character on my site which would make 10 (or 11 if you include DORIS) which would just solidify my role in having 10 out of the 20 characters on the site. Now while I don’t mind having a lot of characters (I’m active with each of them and none are in danger of anything) but I feel that it’s almost overkill to have so many characters. The problem is that I have so many ideas knocking around in my head and I want to play them out but I’m afraid that it would scare potential members that I am monopolizing the RP with my characters although it’s more because there are so few members that my characters aren’t offset by others’ characters. T_T It makes me feel bad because I have the most amount of characters but it also frustrates me because I want to make another character because I have a good idea and I think it should be my choice to make since it is my creative energy.

Now, I had decided last night to make the character and I’m back to being wishy washy on it. I think that it would be a great character to create but I think that I should hold off but that just artistically frustrates me and my muse. I think I will wait for a few more characters to show up before I make her and perhaps I will choose to write my NaNo story on the woman to put it out creatively.

Thanks for listening to my plight while I decided on this, although I still fight to not make the character I think that I will wait until the KoC story furthers and it has been around longer for her to step in or that we get 5-10 more characters on the site.

——————————————————-

Now the last thing I think of is site changes. I am going to change my layout here on Morrigan’s Madness. The colors should stay relatively the same as they are two of my favorites, it’s that or pink. I also am going to create a Listing and maybe start up a fanlisting or two. I will most likely begin to get my site linked at other places so look forward to seeing a lot of changes here on MM but they may be slow, my first priorities is scheduling my life, KoC and RPers Anon. I think that you will all enjoy the changes as I will be adding Twitter stuff, Facebook Stuff and more. ^_^

That’s it for now. Enjoy and thanks for reading.

Spam is funny sometimes

So i look through my spam, for this site for two reasons. the first to make sure that a valid comment isn’t sitting in the recesses of comment hell. The second reason is because the damn things are so funny. “You have such a great forum. My name is blah blah blah” or even better, I think the best one I saw in a while, “I tend to agree with the posts on this blog, but in this case I ought to say that I do not agree with this.” That one still makes me laugh after I’ve read it. That one is extra funny because it is an opinionated comment on a non-objective subject. The post was Not so interesting day which, for those that don’t want to go back and read it, was an entry about how the story I am trying to take off the hands of my brother is going to be difficult for me.

I mean really? How does that warrant a comment of:
“I tend to agree with the posts on this blog, but in this case I ought to say that I do not agree with this.”
It’s like it’s saying. “I agree with your opinions but this not opinion is not agreeable.” Or even better. “You’re WRONG! This is going to be easy as cake for you, you stupid whore!”

Spam and it’s entertainment value.

In other news! I have joined a few more forums and am trying to stay active on them but I also got a few members on my site and got quite a few posts done today. I hit over 100 posts on my own forum. I believe my threats of elephant genocide is working. Remember… Join Wootflakes or the Elephant gets it!!

On the news of wootflakes! I have posted my fourth ever comic today! Yay for staying steady. Go check it out. Tell me what you think! On top of that I added a Wootflakes fan page! Become a fan of Wootflakes and it’s kidney failing goodness! Do it or the baby elephants die. Don’t kill any more baby elephants.

What else got done today?
Nothing.

I watched Xena. Tried to to die with headachishness and children running around like mad. I did do my Yoga again today and actually should go to bed so I have time to go to do Yoga before I take my daughter to her socialization. I don’t know if I should even bother but I guess a few minutes is better then no minutes with her friends right? I’, still frustrated over the vaccination thing. I kind of wish I can feign refusal and that I didn’t want her to get it and then she can go. Wishful thinking. We’ll see.

Well goodnight! Hope you’re having a good day! ^_^

Naughty Morr

Gah! I’m having naughty thoughts about not posting a blog tonight. I’ve been bad enough barely even posting a blog the past few days for lack of motivation (meaning I’ve been tired and not willing enough to push out a better post then what I did) and so I’ve been naughty. This is my outlet to try and keep me a little more sane then I normally am and to just have a place to vent a little.

So today’s adventures. My mum kept pushing and poking until I went to church with her. FAIL! I mean I am not an atheist by the furthest stretch of the imagination but I’m also not Mormon anymore, I haven’t been for almost a decade. Come to think of it I find that a lot of changes in my life happened when I was 17 because that was when I also lost faith in the Mormon church. Now my mum’s Mormon, which is good and well, they have been really awesome in helping her out in this hard time, but I’m not anymore. SO! I went to church with her today and I hated it, as I knew I would. It’s boring and short of learning more ammunition for why I am not Christian any longer I don’t learn anything of value. I only let my kids go because it’s like a free play group. <_< I know… I’m bad.

What else? Nothing really. Today has been a rather boring day. It was mostly because over half of it was wasted on the waste winds of Waste Church. Bleh. It sucks. I think I got one Smiley done today and the rest of the time I’ve been a little nostalgic and missing my old site but whatever. If they’d rather ban me then pretty much say, “Listen Bitch, do what we say or else” then that’s their perogative. I really didn’t even realize I had done anything wrong until the ban message. How sad is that? C’est La Vie I guess. Doesn’t make it any better or me any happier that my friends from there don’t talk to me so much or that I got mad at some of them and told them I didn’t want to talk to them anymore. T_T Whatever. I am past it and onto better things I hope. I know it’s for the better because I’m not consumed by the site like I used to be. I still miss the people though.

I did talk to Sparky a bit today but she seemed distracted so I left her alone and Arkasel always seems distracted and I don’t think Neph cares to talk to me at all anymore. Whatever I guess.

ON A BETTER NOTE!

I think I have a majority of my webcomic for this week planned out. I haven’t started working on it yet but I have considered what I am doing. It will be NEXT weeks webcomic that I will have to be worried about. Remember that wit and comedy that I told you that I don’t have? Well I really don’t have it and once I play out this weeks comic then I think I will be tapped dry. My brother suggested an idea but I am unsure if I want to use it right away, we will see, I might. It’s corny but funny and probably worth it just for the “facepalm lol” factor. We’ll see.

I NEED MORE MEMBERS! Go to WOOTFLAKES and join. It doesn’t matter who you are, if you want to make me to smile and keep writing comics then you should come and talk to me on my forum! Alright…. You don’t have to but you would certainly make me feel warm and fuzzy if you joined and helped me get the commiunity started off by posting in topics starting some, making suggestions. All that awesome forum stuff. ^_^

Alright. I think that’s it for the night. I’m going to probably shut down my depressing computer and watch Dr Who (which will probably just depress me further, BAARROOOWMAN!!! *shakes fist*)

<3333 you all and Hope you are having a good day!

Nothin’ to report

Okay, I really did lie about the whole “I won’t use lines from movies thing” I mean I’ve now brought in the Incredibles. I fail. #morrfail

ALRIGHT! Now time to give all you people something to stare at, go ‘WTF!?’ and move on.

First thing for today…. I GOT SOMETHING DONE! Oh yeah, that’s right! I created a replacement article for IPB to allow admins to replace non-existent profile pictures with avatars, as long as they have an avatar. I’m sure I didn’t find everywhere on the main board but I got most of the essential places for it and I will eventually add the Blogs and Galleries as well. It was a sense of accomplishment of getting it working and then to be promoted on Coder’s Refuge made be all the more happy! Why? Probably because I had this strong sense of accomplishment for the day.

After I succeeded in this adventure I felt the need to not do anything for hours but I was unable to. I simply moved on to attempting more dangerous feats. Next…. I looked at the code I need to change *ie the CSS for the) blogs and then said “Screw that” and went to do other things. Like chat with people for a few hours and help my daughter work on her homework.

Then, toward the end of my fantastically adventurous day I began to re-vamp Ebi1 R0ot! to be more scalable. This means that I adnventured into the dangerous land of Illustrator. It was scary. I had to keep my wits about me so I wouldn’t throw my poor, defenseless, innocent computer across the room in frustration. Luckily I was successful and even more so when I created the new Ebi1 R0ot! Why do you ask? Mostly because I’d rather revamp him now instead of in a year. Another reason is that my brother helped me and lastly? Because he looks so much cuter now. You can see him at his site, Wootflakes

WOW! Today really is a nothing to report sort of day. I haven’t really much else to talk about. Successful coding, successful coloring (I even stayed in the lines) and successful ignoring things that I probably should have been doing.

Kid stuff?
Day 1 with the potty, still no interest but he does know that the thing makes a sound, he just doesn’t know how yet.
My daughter still has a cold and is coughing up a storm. I hope she feels better soon.

You know, speaking of kids, I wish computers were cheaper and I had a bit extra money to buy two cheap laptops for my kids to use. They always want to play games on my laptop but I swear to god they are like master genius of messing up every setting known to man, even ones that haven’t been made yet. It’s like a black hole of settings and they know how to change every single one of them without a bat of an eyelash. At least on their own computers I wouldn’t care what they did and I can disable access to evil things like the Internet and porn and things. Well probably, more specifically, pictures of me and my own websites. This site is certainly not intended for children. If it is, or it seems that way… You were completely mislead.

OKAY! Now I think that’s really it. Mostly because I’m tired and falling asleep at the keyboard again. Also my brain has melted from a day of awesome!

Goodnight everyone. Hope you’re having a good day. ^_^

Strut

So today’s accomplishments!? NONE! Okay. I got one accomplishment, I got my forum/topic markers done today. I guess you can include that the members list looks better, I got the blog header working and I started work on the Profile. I’m a woman that loves a good profile and I HATE the default IPB one but I don’t know what to do with it. It’s like a necessary evil that I don’t know how to make a “nice” necessary evil. I mean, I used to have one of the best profiles (and from a few compliments that I’ve heard) THE best profile in the 2.3.x series. I completely re-vamped my profiles to look the way I wanted them… Now I don’t think I have the same amount of a reason for it because the new profiles look better but I don’t know what to do with them…. They offer a lot more sex appeal then the older ones but not enough for me to be satisfied with them.

So I didn’t get much else done, mostly because I’m pretty sure it’s that time of the month and my skin scrawls because I’m wearing clothes. I don’t understand it really, I feel like a big ball of sensitive skin. I’ll be glad when it’s all over. About this though, I have two kids and when they are asleep I like to take long, hot baths… you know the quiet, uninterrupted sort that is really….. quiet, and well, is it just me or as a parent of young children do you get paranoid when you want/do something for you yourself? I turn on the bath water and immediately have to stick my head out of the door because I think I hear my son crying. Of course he never really is but it still doesn’t make me any less paranoid.

Next thing to talk about? My recent Twitter conversation with Sparky, AKA LOL_J on Twitter, got me thinking about dancing in public. Now I have no problem with shaking my ass for anyone’s preview. I come from a family of very few reservations. We are all eccentric Addams family types in my household. But, as I talked with her I realized, as I always do, that I’m a woman that stands out in a crowd. I’m not necessarily skinny, actually probably not by a long-shot, but I still wear crop tops and things that show off my strangely colored legs. I wear medieval clothing in public, PJs. You name it and I’ve probably worn it in public, Yes…. even a bathing suit with nothing else. NO, I’ve never been nude in public. Off kilter there for a second, now I’m back on track.
SO! I’m a 6’2″, not so skinny “Amazon” woman that doesn’t really have a self conscious bone in her body…. or so it would appear by the way I dance, shake my ass and sing, and terribly massacre songs, while I’m out and about. Now I come to think of why this is. I mean I know I’m not attractive and what-ot. I think I might do it for the attention but it’s more likely I do it for the laughs.
Like yesterday! Most epic thing. We were checking out of Sam’s club, I do a deep hip shaking dip to “Fever” I think, and then there is this cheer from behind me. It’s like this 70 year old man cheering at me shaking my ass. I had a good lol before I went back to doing my shaking.
Why do I really do it? Because I enjoy, enjoying myself and really like to smile.

What else? What else? Oh yes! I keep getting random comments that seem like real people but I mean they are just off enough to make me think that they are spammers. Really I don’t understand why I have spammers on such a small site that no one really reads anyways. That being said I guess I will answer a few questions that I am unsure if bots are asking or real people. *I have approved most comments removing the bot-like link from their comment, sorry to anyone that is real that has had it removed.*
Question1: Yes I run this on the Application, WordPress. I designed *or mostly designed, the original coding was from a template* the layout for the site.
Question2: I try to update every day. Am I successful? Probably not but I do try. Two kids and looking for a job along with many other non-social activities and chores around the house=Not always the most successful at getting anything done.
Question3: I don’t care if you rate my site, bash my site, promote my site or whatever in your own blog. Please feel free! I just ask that you post a link to the source after you’re done with it so I can read it.
I’m fine with answering questions and whatnot so. 😀

I got my son a training toilet today. I hope that it will inspire him to start potty training. I’m so over diapers it’s not even funny. I don’t think he really understands, or cares to go potty yet so I don’t know how successful it will be. *crosses fingers* here’s hoping.

I was talking earlier with my friend, Neph, about how crazy my thoughts can get sometimes. I only knew this from my late night post yesterday with the Random thought about brain melting. It just seemed overly odd to me that I would come up with that while tired and not while awake. I guess when your brain as less “active” functions to do then it has more time to be creative or think of odd things. Maybe it’s what it’s supposed to do… to confuse us.

I think that’s it for the night though. I know this seems like I’m cutting this post short… I am! I’m falling asleep at the keyboard which is a surefire sign to just stop typing and go to bed.

Goodnight everyone. Hope you’re having a nice day!

Layouts and well just layouts I guess

I did a few things today, including spending more money then I could afford on pictures of my kids. Man I need a really awesome camera so I don’t need to get pro pictures anymore, and maybe a lot more experience in photoshop.

After the picture getting though I continued to vigorous work on my Wootflakes site layout and guess what? I currently believe I have one of the most epic layouts I have ever created. Go check it out:
http://wootflakes.com
It’s purdy to me at least and optimized for larger screens. Sorry to anyone that has something smaller then a 1024×768, I’m not hindering my web design for you guys anymore. Why apologize? Well I don’t need to, truly if you’re still one a computer that the largest size screen you can get on it is 800×600 then you need to throw it in the trash and go get a new one.

As for the layout itself, once I’m completely completed on it I will be making a few different renditions, mostly just changing the color of the box, probably a green, grey, pink, orange and maybe black. If you guys are lucky I’ll create a block one but that will require more image edits then the rest of them. ^_^

What else did I do today that would be interesting material to talk about with strangers?

OH! I watched Coraline and Whip It! Both fantastic movies, I suggest them highly. So far, I don’t think I’ve seen an Ellen Page movie that I haven’t liked. Not saying that I won’t but she seems to be really good in what I’ve seen her in.

Okay, not a long post today, not really anything done except my monumental success of a layout re-vamp! Totally stoked about all of this so yeah! <333 you all and Have a good day!
