alright so at the request of a certain fox (bandrik) i made my font white so it's a bit more legible. not sure i like it but...ah well, it'll do for now hehe.
for those of you who don't know, at home i don't have a computer. the way i'm hooked to the internet right now is two ways A) by way of public computers at the library and such. this sucks because anything i save i have to delete before i leave otherwise everyone can read/see it. this also means that any revisions to typed stories that i do i have to retype everything...and it sucks. therefore i do most of my work longhand. also B) through my phone. i can access AIM through there, which is how i'm always on, and surf the net, however posting to LJ isn't always possible. alot of times my phone will tell me "selected page too large to load" (softpaw, you have the same phone i do...do you ever get that message?) and forget replying to comments. i can usually get ryuukojin's and bandrik's LJ's to load onto my phone so i can keep up to date with them but they're about the only ones. and even the latter is sometimes testy...perhaps because of all the cute fox photos on it =-P
i mention this because my grandma's boyfriend is moving in with her and they've decided that they don't need two computers so i get one of them. i'm getting her's (not his) and i'm very glad. it comes with printer and all that stuff. every time i go out to her house i want to peck around on her computer...it's not anything fancy but i like it. course after i get it, it'll look completely different. she has different bible verses as her screen saver...yea i'm more likely to have some animal running across the screen. anyway bill (her boyfriend) moved a bunch of his stuff in the other day but i don't know when for sure i'll get the computer. i'm 99% sure that it'll be before the end of june. and for some reason i keep thinking within the next 7-8 days. i don't know why but yea...that's just what my gut is telling me, though it has been known to be wrong in the past (not much but occasionally). it's probably wrong this time...but a girl can hope right?
one other thing, i was browsing the CD rack at Barnes and Noble last week looking for a specific CD and while sampling it with their preview stations Cher's cd's caught my eye. i remembered seeing her on Oprah not long ago with tina turner and liking her. so i sampled one of her cd's (the very best of cher) and wound up liking every song. liking them all enough to buy the cd that is. whoever thought i'd be a cher fan...
Meet Cher ^_^
