Who says that I don't manage my time productively?
Okay, so you all in this oft neglected community probably know that livejournal upped the amount of icons a paid user can upload, right? Which is all well and good, but I have found myself with zero icon inspiration, especially considering that my crashed hard drive contained the vast majority of my image galleries. (Grrr. Aargh.) Long story short, I tried making icons but ended up with a wallpaper tribute to Westwood Chateau. Go figure.
Ah, Westwood Chateau. I never lived there, but I might as well have given the amount of time I used to spend over bumming around Frances’ apartment. This wallpaper commemorates great times, great friends, and great Friday Night Dinners.
One click takes you to my scrapbook gallery, another to the fullsize wallpaper.
A while ago, I wanted to conceive an idea known as Jenn's Eleven. Due to drama and other things, it never came about. I was originally going to do a video, but I was thinking maybe I could make a poster. Anyway, I thought maybe I could do something fun like that just because. I would just have to collect photos and stuffs of people and try to put something together, maybe something like a fake ad campaign. Individual characters having separate posters and then have one with everyone altogether?
Jenn - The Planner
Jaclyn - The Wit
Patrick and Frances (Fratrick? lol) - (got an idea for a title, Frances?)
Jeff - The Muscle
So that's five of us. I have to think of more peoples. Very random, but I thought, "Why not just throw it out there randomly?"
Helena - The Artist
Ben - The Cat
Current Music: Ocean's Eleven Soundtrack
I promise to update about my travels (and travails) in Beijing, China. Later. With pics, I promise.
In addition, I fully admit to messing about with Photoshop in lieu of, you know, updating. Here are two pseudo-iPod ads. I wanted to use the same font, but Myriad is commercial. $21. Boo. (P.S. if any Mac friends happen to see this and accidentally send me the font files, I'd be ever so grateful.)( Without further ado...Collapse )
I know I said no memes...I lied. Deal.
1.) Copy and paste this into your journal:
<*font color="yourusername"> <*b>yourusername<*/b> <*/font>
2.) Eliminate the asterisks.
2 1/2.) Replace "yourusername" with your user name.
3.) See what color you are
I did it for all of us!
Grrr...We're such boring colors! Everybody else is ugly shades of putrid yellow or eyesore pink.

Considering the controversy this man raised in this very community, this made me laugh, so here is the GREATEST AMERICAN EVER: http://dsc.discovery.com/convergence/greatestamerican/greatestamerican.html

Um, yeah. I was researching online music priacy for the 10 page single-spaced paper I'm writing tonight and absolutely had to stop and share this little gem of a poster. It's the companion piece to the more popular, "If you pirate mp3s, you're downloading communism" poster we all know and love...

Assembly says shorter books would help kids |

While the sentiments are noble (but honestly, when are they not?), the implementation is nothing short of deranged. California students have such superior reading skills that we can permit them to bypass most of the textbook part of education in a misguided attempt to make them more computer savvy? Newsflash: your average 10-year-old already knows how to use the internet far better than you ever will. And how many remedial English classes are taught in college?
Kids need to know how to read effectively. How to glean relevant information from material that is less than succinct and to the point. LIKE I DO EVERY FREAKIN' DAY AT UCLA.
Sigh. Let's hope the California Senate is
less fucking retarded more reasonable than the Assembly was.
