I just realized Photobucket deleted my awesome picture of Nakamura Miu, gravure pirate. Wtf, photobucket. Didn't even let me know.

They also deleted the one I uploaded after that, but I can't remember for the life of me who/what it was. You know, gravure pirate was relatively tame compared to Hara Mikie shoving her boobs into the camera lens or Kuroki Meisa licking her finger suggestively.

What bugs me more is that I can't remember what "04.jpg" might have been. Hmmmm. Anyone? I don't even remember where I posted it.

EDIT: Solved. It was one of Oshima Mai. Maybe the crotch-shot did it.

I have been without internet since Monday evening.

I don't know why it happened, but I was able to get it back this morning. I'm not exactly able to afford my own internet yet, so I've been hesitantly borrowing the one open connection around here. I'm kind of holding my breath now, but it seems to be okay. It kicked me off once a few minutes ago but miraculously came back.

I've been pretty bored without it. I've tried to keep busy by reading, watching movies, television (I marathoned S2 of Mad Men), dramas, cleaning...when you have no money, no cable, and no new things happening, I was surprised that even a recluse like me went stir-crazy. Sometimes I'd lie on my living room floor and stare at the ceiling. Pathetic.

I love my apartment still. I started work again too. Not too many hours this week, but we'll see how it goes when school actually starts. I want to get this coming weekend over with.

Pictures maybe later today, but my bathroom still isn't finished. =/ I still need a bathmat that either has strawberries or is red. A tissue box cover wouldn't hurt too, because the blue box I have really clashes.

I straightened my hair by myself for the first time Tuesday night. It took about two hours, and man, do I need a haircut. It's too long and fluffy. I think I'm going to shower before going out today in order to bring the curls back. Maybe after I can afford a haircut I'll start doing it again.

I posted back in May about my desktop sound card going out. Well, a day or two after that post it completely stopped working, which is quite inconvenient for me. The desktop is where I do most of my online work (this includes organizing my files), and I have to have music whenever I'm on the desktop. The last two summers consisted of me plugging the pikoPod in and having at it - organizing my idol folders, organizing my music, redesigning websites, you name it. I was on a roll.

When it stopped working, my productivity went down. Sure, I could just put my earbuds back in my iPod and listen that way, but my iPod is old and has mood swings (which means I can't listen to it at ease, without feeling like it might turn off on me which results in a very unpleasant, loud noise in my earbuds), and half of the time I don't know what I want to listen to. I can't just put it on "shuffle" and skip through the songs I don't want to listen to, because excessive skipping (and volume change) is how it poops out. Additionally, I've been trying to play or weed out the songs not listened to for a year, and the only way I can view the date is when I have iTunes open. What I did as a makeshift replacement was bring down some old, crappy speakers from an old computer and put them on the sides of my monitor and plug that into my iPod, but it's basically just functioning as earbuds then.

In summary, I am a big nerd with my iPod and need it connected to a computer to fully enjoy listening to it.

That said, I've used my laptop for a lot of things, but because I have countless needed files on the desktop (my website files, to name a big one) and no real mouse on the laptop, it becomes a hinderance and in the end, all I've done is watch dramas and go online with it. (I do all my TFL updates on it though, and listen to music then. <3) But I like listening to music best when I am being productive in the web-geek sense.

I've desperately wanted to get out of my design rut and put it on the To-Do list for today, that no matter what I would try to make something new. What I did was plug in the laptop nearby (on top of the barrel we keep the kitty food in actually), plug the iPod in that, and plug in the aforementioned speakers to the laptop, and I'm ready to go again!

I looked through some idol picture BBSs and found a great one of Ueto Aya I think I'll use. I'd wanted to use something from Fukakyon's "25sai" photobook or even Yossi's "Yossui." but...nothing was working. I'm just happy to have something in the works.

(On a side note, as I was going to upload the following screengrab at TinyPic, Sugaya Risako popped up as a recently uploaded one. xD

Now that I've customized my style, I like it much more. I always seem to go immediately to a pink theme. XD I think I'd like to change to some pastel blues or greens though, because that's what I think of when I think of summer.

I'm so, so unmotivated this week, which is not smart considering I have a big final tomorrow. Oops.

Thank you so much, [personal profile] sukoshi!

Agh, sometimes I really just want to take back my internet name for me. <33 Even after 7 years I still want to be Wapiko.
