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! ^_^

Almost Forgot

I was getting tired and I almost completely spaced posting my blog for the day. So updates…

Today was another day that I wasn’t feeling up to doing anything much. I had a headache most of the day and do not look forward to tomorrow. When I neglect cleaning I have to power clean more. Tomorrow is a power clean day because Fae’s Teacher will be here to teach her something new. I still need to clean my room from the things that I brought inside. It’s all crowded again. I need to get the clothes up, make my bed and go through the stuff that I brought in, most of which is craft stuff. It’s not hard but I’ve been working on Wootflakes mostly.

As for stuff that I got done today? Nothing out of the ordinary. Working with kids, working on website and trying not to pound my head on my keyboard. I feel that I got my main Wootflakes layout completed and so I have began to work on a red version of this layout and will push that momentum into creating a lot of colorful renditions of the box for any color lover. ^_^ I hope I tickle your fancy with them. Hopefully tomorrow I can get the Previous/Next links started and working. I added a link to the Archive since I forgot to put it there.

Tomorrow, remind me to post about the spam I get as it makes me lol. For now I’m going to sleep. Hope you’re having a good day.

PS. I changed Twitter updates to update once a week instead of once a day to cut down on the amount of twitter posts I have. ^_^

I’m insane… IPB Skins?

Okay! So first things first… the first thing on my brain. IPB SKINS! Okay! So I was in the bath, thinking and reading and doing that stuff that you do while you cook in water of your own roast beef filth and I had an epiphany. LETS MAKE IPB SKINS FOR PEOPLE TO DOWNLOAD!! Yeah! After that short psychotic episode I reconsidered that and how stupid it was.

What was I thinking? Not much really. I was thinking about making people poke me via Comments, Twitter Follows/comments, and having people join my site. No! Not stupid but also not something I’m willing to do. I doubt I’d ever complete a theme. I haven’t (technically) finished my Wootflakes theme. So what was I even thinking? Self promotion and themes. I probably COULD do it but I’d need more interest to even consider it.

That out of the way? My day has consisted of cleaning! Well technically it started out being woken up EARLY by my brother who works the graveyard. He woke me to get me to make breakfast, which was terrible because I didn’t make the pancakes right and the bacon was overcooked. After my family tortured themselves through breakfast I watched Zombieland! OMG! AWESOME MOVIE! I think it could have done with a little bit more of the theme park thing that it seemed to advertise but otherwise it was really awesome. I loved how they did the rules and they re-iterated them a lot throughout the movie. It was constantly inconspicuous but I loved the rules and the way they were implemented. <3 you Sparky! You are my Zombie Queen!

Other then a movie and being woken up before a zombie this morning I cleaned a lot. I’m trying to help keep my mum unstressed in her time of divorce. I guess my stepdad filed for divorce a few days ago. Total fail for him because he’s a total douche. I think that if douchebaggery came before him that he went back in time to create it. Stepdad=douche.

Last thing for today? I would like to mention that I fell in love <333 <3333 <333 with Goblins the webcomic when my brothers finally berated me enough to go and read it. NO it’s not bad I am just lazy. I’ve been reading the thing for a few months now and I still love it. Tarol the author is AWESOME!. I watched a live webcast tonight where he talks and draws. He answers questions and all that jazz. He’s really awesome. What else is there to say? He is an artist that I aspire to be like but will never attain because I don’t draw *well* and I am not so entertaining?

So what is my form of recourse? Well I will sit around, brood about it. Think that I suck a lot more. Continue writing my stupid webcomic and pretend that I am just as awesome. It’s about the same thing. The difference? I’m not as awesome. Small price to pay for blissful ignorance. ^_^

Not much else to say. Don’t forget to go look at the new Wootflakes comic and have a good day!

Bob Marley in Final Fantasy!!

So I’ve been having this problem the last few days where I have been ready for bed WAY earlier then normal. Oftentimes I am able to stay up until 1-4 in the morning and still be up early with my kids *around 7-10*. Lets be honest, it may not be good for me but it sure is fun!! So the past few nights I’ve been ready to sleep before 10PM even hits. Now I’m not young anymore but I’m not THAT old. I should still be able to stay up past a certain time and be able to function properly. I think it just sucks because I’m sure I know WHY I feel so tired this early but I have nothing to really fill the time to make me want to stay up. (Join Wootflakes or a baby elephant will die)

Onto another topic… Final Fantasy 13. You haven’t heard enough about it? Well AWESOME!!! I don’t have much to say. It’s pretty, like each Final Fantasy game in seasons passed have been, it’s got things that you summon (which appear to each be some sort of riding thing) and it has a Bob Marley guy named Sazh that has the goofiest little profile portrait in the world. Seriously look:

Sazh funny face

Bob Marley for Final Fantasy

Do you see what I mean? This guy has the funniest little portrait picture in the world.

The Cheesy grin, the little thumbs up. I seriously can’t help but laugh every time I see the bloody thing. Then as I laugh my brother CJ, who plays the game, laughs. It just entertains me.

On the brighter side? I think that little Chocobo that he carries around with him makes him completely full of win. That and the fact that he shoots guns all wicked behind his back and above his head. That’s all the spoilers that you get because really? That’s all I’ve watched. <_<

What else to update on? OH! My brother finished playing God of War and I was asleep for it. Sad days but I will watch it eventually. I love the game enough to play it myself if I had the time, which I will make for myself in the future when things are more settled down in my life then it is right now.

Other things? Oh yes! I had meant to talk about this yesterday but I didn’t have the mind about me to remember to talk about it. So here goes:
So I have Twitter. Fantastic crowd follower right? Well anyways. I get email updates when people follow me. Why? Because I like to check out who is following me so if they interest me or are a friend I can follow them back. All stuff you know about Twitter you say? Well how about this?

I HATE PEOPLE THAT FOLLOW YOU TO UNFOLLOW YOU!

Good god! I sit here and I get these random people, random company type people and I get emails that say that they are following me. I go to check them out and they either just randomly followed me or they had already unfollowed me by the time I went to look them up. Worse still? It’s not like I hide my updates so it’s not like you need to follow me in order to see my posts.

Continuing on the Twitter follow tangent though, I’ve figured out why people (or assumed rather) do it. It’s because they want more followers and they assume if they mass follow then people will come check them out and then they’d get more followers. Or something like that. Pretty much it has to do with marketing their Twitter accounts in annoying ways.

Stupid heads!

Alright! What else is there to talk about today? OH YEAH!

NEW WOOTFLAKES WEBCOMIC!!!!

For shame on me. I haven’t been updating you guys on my writing and my world. Well I’ve not done much with it lately. Mostly because I’ve been focused on other tasks. Namely keeping other things in order and putting together my website. I am working on getting a few things done this week and hopefully this weekend I will be able to pick it back up again. I still have to figure out next weeks webcomic!! YAY!

I cleaned my stuff up in the garage so the Garage is clean, I was dirty until I took a shower, and cars can be parked in it. Now I just have to do all of the laundry that was brought in from the bags out there, clean up my room from the stuff that was brought inside, and make a secret device that automatically cleans everything as my kids make a mess.

Last thing for the night. I intend to start rollerskating for exercise, that or Yoga. I think Yoga might be more my thing but I’m going to start one of them here shortly. I really wish that I could just do more Wii Fit. I found it extremely relaxing to do. Well if I get a Yoga thing maybe I can just turn the sound off and follow the destructions without much of a problem. Once I get the technique down I’m sure that I could just turn on some relaxing ocean sounds and make up my own routine. I might also combine the yoga and the skating, the skating more for cardio.

You know? Now that I’m on the subject I want to complain about Cardio. I HATE working up a sweat I hate when my heart feels like it’s going to beat out of my chest and my lungs are going to explode. I know that’s partially from lack of exercise but I really HATE it. It is the worst form of staying in shape because I just hate doing it. I hate feeling icky just to be more healthy. That’s probably why I like Yoga more then other forms of fitness but skating might be an okay alternative. As long as I do it either early in the morning or after my kids go to bed in the evening. I live in AZ, I’m going to be realistic here, going outside when it’s hot SUCKS royally. So going out at cooler times when it’s summer (it will be around 90-110 no matter what) is a good plan.

Okay. I think that’s it for me tonight. Goodnight everyone! I hope you’re having a good day. ^_^

A whole lotta nothin’

I don’t think I got much of anything done today. Nothing particularly talk worthy at least.

Via sites I fixed a skin issue on Wootflakes and began work on forum and topic markers… OH! I also adequately changed a header elements to appear nicer looking then before. It’s much prettier now.

Tomorrow I will continue work on my forum/topic markers before I delve into the UCP, Profile, Blogs and the Gallery to make it look prettier. Most of those are just CSS edits that I know of, and mostly just color edits at that. I do have a few mods that I want to install, most of them to do with adding a little knick, knack here and there, like profile stats. I haven’t decided for sure if I want them though so I’m still looking. I think it would really help if more screenshots were provided, or in most cases, bigger screenshots.

Earlier I had an epiphany about IPB and them having a page in the ACP with all of the default style elements on one page to make it easy for a novice admin, like myself, figure out what has been changed and what still needs to be changed via CSS. Then I considered it for a few more minutes and realized how terribly awful that would be to compile and scraped the thought.

I also just had an epiphany on how to properly fix my Wootflakes layout. It involves changing a few image sizes and this will be good but a bit of work for me tomorrow. Just need to remind myself to align the image with the left of the box. It will all make sense when I have it all figured out.

Next thing of note for the day? I watched Inglorious Basterds and was supremely disappointed. I don’t know why I was disappointed… I mean there were good laughs and good parts but I don’t know, it just felt weird. Maybe it was because I didn’t recognize Tarantino as any of the characters and I’ve come to expect that? Or it was late in the evening and I didn’t expect to have to read so much? Whatever the case is, I didn’t like it very much except for the good actors parts and the few good laughs. Do I suggest it? Not really.

Okay, I think my brain just melted in my head. It’s really late and I ought to stop typing to the people of the world and off myself to bed. Goodnight everyone. Hope you are having a good 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!
