marry'd! [03 Jul 2008|07:37pm]
So yeah. We got married about a month ago, we just got the professional photos back, and here are a bunch of our favourites mixed in with our favourites of the non-pros. Apologies if you've already seen this link somewhere else, but I do have friends whose only way of keeping up with me is livejournal, so... here.

Ok, everything's fixed now. You can stop panicking in the streets and looting and rioting. I mean, if you want to.

domain currently down [03 Jan 2007|09:01pm]
Just to let you know, my domain needs renewing but I'm not in the same time zone as the people I need to talk to to do it (it is surprisingly not easy), so if you're trying to go to my journal or email me, not that you are, you won't be able to, because right now that domain doesn't exist.

But it ought to be fixed by sometime tomorrow; I am confident of this because I have a day off and can devote the entire thing to wrangling with the domain people.

oh cat balls, it's another meme [07 Apr 2006|10:55pm]
i keep meaning to write. i do. i have the starts of things in my head. then i get embarrassed because everyone else is past that and i'll look like some high school level baby blurting out things with no substance or interest. i don't want to just become a meme person, but... well. this one wasn't too terrible, anyway, and i get to brag that i knew at least one of these things already. i know SO MANY useless facts! yes!

so i got this off thirtysilver: you go to wikipedia and search your birthday. then you pick 3 events, 2 births, and one death, and post them. so simple, a monkey could do it! i am like monkeys in many ways! here are my picks:

may 24 -
3 events:
1626 - Peter Minuit buys Manhattan. beads! trinkets! national mythology based on white people laughing at natives!
1899 - The first public parking garage in the United States is opened in Boston, Massachusetts. Boston, city of history
1968 - FLQ separatists bomb the U.S. consulate in Quebec City. oh yes, Canada can do the whole martial law "thing" too

2 births:
15 BC - Julius Caesar Germanicus, Roman commander snap! i bet you did not know THAT!
1819 - Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom thank you, victoria day, for giving me long weekends to have my birthday in

1 death:
1543 - Nicolaus Copernicus, astronomer what? i always just liked his name

again again! [27 Dec 2005|06:59pm]
ok, so since that book post went so swimmingly (and it did, i'm not being sarcastic, i'm going to go out and get several of the recommendations as soon as i can), i am going to ask for your help again. this time it's a little more specific and i don't expect all of you to contribute. but if you can, i hope you do. so what i am asking for this time is COVER SONGS. i am making a cd for a friend (who doesn't read this, ha ha ha sneaky) and i want some suggestions. the thing is that i have a bunch, and i'm prepared to run out partway through and put on songs that are not covers, but i don't feel that 7 is enough to run out after. 7 does not constitute a theme. i don't want to repeat artists (otherwise i'd be done already) and i kind of hoped she'd know the originals, or at least know things were covers, but if you have a really kickass suggestion that doesn't fit that bill i'd be happy to hear it anyway.

so let's go. give me what you've got.

recommend me [17 Dec 2005|07:12pm]
i desire and require that you give me book recommendations! i know that most of you read and i trust the taste of nearly all of you! everyone had better pony up at least one. i don't care what it's about as long as it's good, defined as "you enjoyed it."

thank you and goodnight!

ok, so the latest in the news of the world is that what had expired was NOT my hosting account (well, it had, but my quick work with a credit card soon remedied that), but my domain registration. now, i would like to say that my quick work with a credit card also remedied that, but that would be lying. you see, i couldn't do it the automated way at the people with whom my domain was registered, probably because i left it too late, and anyway i would have to know my CIRA user number and password, which of course i do not remember because the last time i had to use it was 2 years ago. there is supposed to be a failsafe for this known as "we will email it to you at the address which you provided to CIRA." except that was my mcgill email, which obviously is no longer working as i am no longer a student there, and there's for some reason NO WAY TO CHANGE IT. thanks CIRA you're awesome! anyway, i emailed the domain registration chappies and told them the status of the scenario, so hopefully things will be resolved, but it may be a little longer than expected. 'pologies.

psa [04 Jan 2005|05:39pm]
i thought i should let you know, if you read my real journal, you are probably having some trouble getting into it these days. that's normal, so am i. i also can't get any email on my account with my domain, and probably none of you to whom i've given email addresses can either.

this is because my hosting account expired. i have given it my new credit card number (the old one was expired, which is why the account didn't automatically re-start itself) and it says it's received it, but so far that hasn't changed anything. i'm sorry if this is causing your email account to be inaccessible.

so here's what's going to happen: i have a homie-g-mail account (see profile) if you want to email me, and if anything of note happens, i'll post it here. but it's going to have to be pretty damn "of note," because this journal is not for me to go on about my daily life.

um... that is all. thank you, drive thru.

the blue ogre! [21 Apr 2004|04:04pm]
yeah, so it's a doodle. sue me.

i drew it on the margin of a japanese story we had to read about the "blue ogre." this chappie is supposed to be some sort of blue ogre, then. and yes, i know his head is deformed... he's an ogre. and yes, he's supposed to be sad.

this is about the size it was originally, but the larger size it scanned to is also cool, if you can ignore the ears.

oh, and a question: [04 Oct 2003|08:52pm]
do most people put themselves on their friends lists?
and if so, why? it's not like you didn't see your entry when you wrote it your own self... there must be something i'm not getting here.n

another psa [12 Jun 2003|11:43am]
(i promise, i will get back to the poetry-content soon. when i write some.)

i got an email last night from some dude asking for a livejournal code. well mike, i haven't got one, and you're right, i don't know you. i'm not emailing you back in case this is some fucked up new email scam designed to find active addresses, but since i'm a nice person i'm letting you know here, which, if you wanted to email me and get a code off me, you will probably read. sorry, but i only had one, and i gave it to cheesyblob.

just a PSA [05 Jun 2003|02:27am]
ok, i wish i could tell this to the whole world, but i guess i'll settle for telling it to the people whose friends list i'm on, which is mostly reciprocal so i'll HOPEFULLY see the results i'm looking for anyway because you guys are the only ones i read.

when you are commenting, clicking "reply to this" replies to the person's comment directly above the link! not to the poster of the journal entry! stop replying to the wrong person! it's not just nonsensical to read, it's uncool because if the person's got email replies set, then the journaller doesn't get emailed about the reply, and the commenter, who may or may not even KNOW you, and to whose post your comment likely has no relevance, does get an email!

the correct link is the one that says "post a new comment." it's right under the original journal entry and at the very bottom of the whole list of comments.

you're all computery internet people, this should not be hard.

Bad Gina [28 Jan 2003|07:08pm]
