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....

    On the movie front, I still have no clue if my scenes will end up in the movie. It was a good AND bad experience, & that's hard to explain. Of…

    I had a flu shot today. I figured it would be a good idea, since I have virtually no immune system to speak of. Boy, do I feel crummy, though. They…

    Still no clue what I'm going to do. No clue at all.
