but he haaaaaaaates country music

so doke and I went to see invincible last night, and then by walmart (for a psp) afterwards.
I had a really good time, like I always do... seems odd that things went so sour btwn us.
I bought a psp, and omg ya'll... tekken is so awesome.
I can now gaze at devil jin whenever it suits me.

.oO(omg I'm such a fangirl)

sarah got me tekken 5:dr for my bday~

fubar ftw!

so wheeeee I got my header image up, and it was the wrong size, so I had irbyface add 7 pixels across that top.
looks like I should have gone for 8 or 9 pixels. maybe even 10.
with no photoshop this sucks. and I can't get my about page back up w/out dreamweaver.
oooor maybe I can make some wicked awesome change to my template to get it all worked out.
haha - I'm almost certain it'll be gross 'till I get copies of these apps.

so lus and I went to see little miss sunshine, 'cause his sis recommended it.
omg ya'll it was awesome.
I think... yeah... I think it's the best movie out since serenity.
I don't wanna spoil it for anyone, but I will say it made me laugh so hard I snorted. several times.

and omg!
an old friend of mine - someone I used to know in high school - totally found me on my space!
and omfg! he plays tekken!
his profile is all bryan'ed out (bryan's another tekken character) and I'm suddenly wondering where he's been my whole life

and speaking of where someone's been my whole life... BoB and I got into a bit of a spat yesterday... he seems to take it personally that I bring up his wife a lot.
I mean it as more of a reminder to me than to him.
and either way, he did marry her, and she is his wife.

oh and 'cause I said I would - drunk irby

still in limbo

ok so I promise I'm working on it, just I forgot to bring my external drive with me to work today.
but I did get the stuff for myspace set up again [again], and... well... I got my archives up again too. most of them, anyway.
and I resubscribed to my commenting system, so that should be up again soon too.

I had an awesome birthday weekend.
mcrough humored me so we played a capture the flag game on WoW for about 10 hours straight.
woke up yesterday afternoon to a couple of voicemails from BoB - one of them was him singing some song for a couple of minutes. that was nice of him, and when I actually talked to him we... well... lol... nvm. it's always good to hear from him.
lus and I went out last night, just to the pour house for dinner. irbyface happened to show up, and omg that boy got trashed.
the chick he was with, I believe her name is kat, well... she and I pretty much carried him home.
we got him up the stairs, into his apartment, and onto his couch. then he demanded we put him in bed.
so we did.
then he didn't want me & lus to leave.
so he tried to walk from his bedroom into his living room.
he fell over.
we took many pictures.
they'll be on the internet as soon as lus mails them to me.
it was hilarious, ya'll.

think lus & I are gonna go watch a movie tonight - little miss sunshine, I believe.
and I think doke & I are gonna go watch that football movie tomorrow night... invincible
so that'll be fun, hopefully.

thanks to all of you who called, mailed, or commented me wishing me a happy birthday

I know the header's not up, but I'm just not bothered enough to plug in my external drive right this moment.
I'm just stoked I don't hafta look at that orange yuck anymore.

everything's still broken, but I promise I'm working on it.

so this is... bad...
my /images/ folder is about half as full as it should be and the index is missing
my /photos/ folder has the index but all the galleries are gone
my /about/ is completely gone - thank gawd for google's cache
buuuut my main index page looks to be intact, though my /blog/ folder is empty
the blog thing isn't necessarily bad, since everything's stored on blogger & where ever I happen to be hosted at the time (these last few days it's been hopping around a bit), but I'll be quite upset if I lost the template I used to use.
*crossing fingers*

so here goes guys. see you on the other side.

on and haha - I uploaded the pics to get my myspace back to normal, and now I'm switching dns again so it'll be fubar'ed again.

::: posted by tinafish at 1:12 PM :::


I have no recent backups.
this sucks ~such~ ass.
and someone remind me to cancel with hfh, since they've been less than helpful this entire time.

so here's to switching dns again and seeing what exactly my year old backups look like
*crossing fingers*

shame on me

so... it's happened again...
roger's come and gone, and honestly I've been expecting it for the last few days.
and yet I'm still surprised.
that's how these things go, I guess.

you're gone

Diamond Rio - Unbelievable - You're Gone

I said hello I think I'm broken
And though I was only jokin'
It took me by surprise when you agreed
I was tryin' to be clever
For the life of me I never
Would have guessed how far the simple truth would lead
You knew all my lines
You knew all my tricks
You knew how to heal that pain
No medicine can fix

And I bless the day I met you
And I thank God that He let you
Lay beside me for a moment that lives on
And the good news is I'm better
For the time we spent together
And the bad news is you're gone

Lookin' back it's still surprisin'
I was sinking you were rising
With a look you caught me in mid-air
Now I know God has His reasons
But sometimes it's hard to see them
When I awake and find that you're not there
You found hope in hopeless
Your made crazy sane
You became the missing link
That helped me break my chains

And I bless the day I met you
And I thank God that He let you
Lay beside me for a moment that lives on
And the good news is I'm better
For the time we spent together
And the bad news is you're gone
The bad news is you're gone

le sigh

so it's all gone.
it's time for me to admit all of it is gone.

I think I'm gonna just spend my birthday weekend trying to get stuff back up and running.
at the very least I'd like to get my blog back to looking like it did; this orange poo color scheme is disgusting.

looks promising

well, hopeful, anyway.
I'm able to log into my pepper email address... but so far I haven't received any email.
I'm gonna change my dns tonight, so this place'll be down again for a while.

except the way I feel about you

I've not been sleeping much; I mentioned earlier I've been kinda sad.
I feel a lot better now, though - I talked to BoB for 3 hours or so last night.
~and~ I've just eaten a spinach alfredo (with tomato on it for fun or something) pizza...
I think I'll be sleeping well tonight.
and with that said, I'm going home.

love knows neither envy nor jealousy

but I'm damned jealous of his new life.
the life he built w/out me.
because I chose someone else.

there's also a preorder up on itunes, but I can't seem to get the link to work...

hate is such a strong word

I think knowing my family knows about this place is... making me not really want to talk about anything.
I'm not sure why it matters, though. I'm all grown up.
but they're like strangers that I want to have a good impression of me.
does that even make sense?
and I ~really~ need to work on getting this place up and running again.
so it may go down for a while when I try to log into the server space the guys who bought my hosting company gave me.
except I don't think my login info works, so it'll probably be a bit longer than me just logging in to see if my stuff is still there.

as much as I loved waking up next to you

so I'm still here, and I know I've not been writing lately.
I told myself it was 'cause I hadn't watched the keynote yet, but I watched that yesterday and I still didn't want to write.
I guess the truth is that I'm sad. still sad.
and I don't know why.
I catch myself eyeing someone, with the intention of just dating someone for a few weeks.
and it's not right. and it's not fair.
and I don't know why I'm doing it.
so instead of dealing with how I feel, I play WoW all day.

speaking of, that's coming along nicely. my rogue is 48, my priest is 33, my mage is 26, and my hunter (she's new, and I think I love her) is 9.
I believe my priest is my favorite to play with, and it's almost a hassle to switch characters and get back into killing-stuff mode. I catch myself trying to heal myself, or mcrough, or even random people we don't know. and I'm comfy with her, and it's gotten to the point where I don't believe someone when they say I'm a bad healer. my rogue, I love too, but I'm not entirely sure I play her well. mcrough says I do, but I believe he'd say that whether I do or not. I still love my mage, and she's damn adorable, but I don't play with her enough so I never know exactly what I should be doing.
and I just made that hunter a few days ago, and I find playing with her is quite relaxing. mostly because she's such a low level that she hasn't left alliance territory, so there's no danger of ganking at all.
I want to hit 60. and though at this point my rogue isn't too much higher than my priest, I'd like to get there with her first.
finish what I start, ya know?

so I did watch the keynote, and time machine looks awesome, and I can't wait for the new ichat.
as soon as the new OS comes out I'll probably end up getting a new laptop... sarah said she'd buy this one off me if I do.
the new... uh... mac pros look soooo sexxxy.
lus, mcrough, and I went to ihop for dinner last night. I had a good time, and it was nice to get out for a bit.
it was such a pretty night, though, and I wanted to just sit out on my tailgate for a few hours.

I guess that's all for now; I'm gonna rush back to WoW now that I'm home.
on the super bright side - I've actually got money in my savings account for pretty much the first time in about 2 years.
I should write a self-help budgeting book: Start playing WoW.

::: posted by tinafish at 9:07 PM :::

Monday, August 07, 2006 :::

I was saving it

and I bet you thought I wasn't gonna post tonight.
oh I totally was (am?)
and the best part is - MILKDUD NEEDS A HOOKER
guess who hit 60 in WoW tonight....
not me (I seem to have become obsessed with my priest).

I'm so stoked for him ya'll.
like... I've totally been living vicariously through him.
he just got back from japan.
ate lots of weird food there.
hit 60 with his rogue.
he's my hero.
*sniff sniff*

mama's boys that can't make a stand

I turned in a time off request for my birthday... so I may go to dallas after all.
I think I'm still leaning towards just renting a hotel room and doing I-dunno-what for the weekend.
the big 2 4, eh? what am I gonna do.
I was thinking about getting a guy for the ocassion... always makes me feel better to have someone who thinks I'm awesome around. but I think it's about time I stopped leaning on others.
I will stand on my own.
and I'll be fine.

it's been burning longer

I finally heard from the guys who bought out my hosting company... all I'll say is that it does not look promising.

mcrough and I started a guild - we named it 'oi' and I like it a lot.
think we created it... friday? I'm not entirely sure.
but last night we took our elves and joined milkdud's guild.
I'm really scared of people I don't know, and I'm almost certain milkdud told these guys how shy I am.
honestly I think he tells everyone about how I didn't talk to anyone at the office for a few months after I started working here.
so my elf is almost 46, my priest is almost 27, and my mage is about 23.

I've been playing a lot with roger, that guy I mention on here every now and then.
he's so much fun, ya'll... I get a real kick out of him calling me teener... not sure why, lol
I've met some cool people through our guild, but I've also met some... not so cool people. I'm not sure if it's just me being antisocial or they just suck, but I really prefer doing groups with either mcrough or roger, or both... but not so much with anyone else.

oh and the new guy spent his first two paychecks building a computer. to play WoW.
it's a desktop and he brings it to work with him.
I'd never even thought about doing anything like that, but apparently it's quite common.
