RATS!!!! I ran out of time this morning, & won't get a webcam until tomorrow morning, if then. I have been so tired lately, it's just been really hard for me to get up early to get out & about. I went to bed WAY too late last night. But darnit, I am so addicted to talking to all my new friends on the net, LJ, etc....that I just didn't get to bed. I had intended to get in bed by 10-11. Riiiiight. It was more like 2AM again. **sigh** The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

To those who have requested the secret to my sassy sparkly thingy (that's the typing, not my dildo...that's a joke, I don't have a dildo): I will either post it later, when I get home from work, or you can find the first entry that awesome vixyash made using it (it shouldn't be THAT far back, it's only been in the last few days), & follow the comments links...she tells ME how to do it there.
It's easy, only a matter of copy & pasting. Just don't tell EVERYONE...we don't want EVERYONE to know the secret! Then it's not as cool! ;-�

I need to leave for work now, but I am waiting for a news report. Supposedly, a Britney Spears impersonator is responsible for the death of 2 teenage girls, & there is a multi-million dollar lawsuit now. Well, my friend---Robert---is a pretty well known Britney impersonator...he even has a movie out about it, that was shown at Sundance. So I am freaking out. I PRAY it's not him involved. SHOW THE DAMN STORY ALREADY. I HATE that they give news blurbs to hold you, & then don't show the damn story you want to see until the show is almost over. Bastards. I can't wait much longer or I will be late for work. Crap.

More later....gotta get going.

Got a cheap webcam today. Hope it works with XP. The guy there said it's been sold with new operating systems & has never been brought back. {{crossing fingers}} I will have to have izzicam help me with the set-up...cause I am a dummy when it comes to that stuff.

Wanted to edit some pics tonight. But I can't cause I am a dummy when it comes to stuff like that. I am so bitter right now. I had this awesome HP photo editing program....awesome!!! It was so easy...I loved it. Just the basics...but that's really all I need. Then I got a mother fucking virus & my pc crashed....and when I got a new one, with XP on it, I---for some reason---never got that program back. It MIGHT have been on the installation CD for Windows 98. So now I have Photoshop 5.0 & Corel 8, but I can't figure out how to edit in either one. I figured out how to re-size pics in Corel, but I want to just be able to crop pics! And I can't figure that out. Damnit. crankyangel said she'd teach me when I am over at her place someday. Woot-woot! I can't wait. I love learning new stuff, & generally, I learn fairly fast. I guess I shouldn't be too hard on myself...some people have an aptitude for this sort of stuff, & some people---like me---don't. But I can do other things really well! And everyone has to learn sometime, no one is born knowing photo editing or HTML, ya know. I am grateful for Kayla's help with everything. I think this is the beginning of a grand, fun new friendship! Thank you, Live Journal! :-)

Anyone know where I can get a really simple photo editing program? Either free or really cheap? Basically, all I want to be able to do is crop pics & then save as a JPEG, in XP.

I finally got my new camera case, for my Canon Digital ELPH S110. Woo-hoo! I've only been waiting forever. It's so tiny...just like the camera. I also got the adapter today, too. I had to order it from Circuit City, cause they don't carry it in the store. Otherwise, I would have had to use the battery every time I upload pics.

Was at my wit's end this afternoon. Has a good bit to do with being tired. I get cranky when I am tired. But I just felt like I encountered SO many dumbass people today. Maybe I will post the instances later...too tired tonight.

Crap...I keep forgetting I STILL have to do my taxes, & time is running out. I think I am scared to see how much they are gonna charge me, or how much I will owe.....and money is scarce for me right now.

All for now....

SMOOCH!!!!
