Holy Responsibility, Batman

I have spent a delightful almost-week suffering from the flu. I will never complain about being sick in winter again, because having the flu in 29 degree heat is miserable.

I also reached two milestones – I applied to two universities for next year (COFA and SCA – Bachelor of Visual Arts) because despite having my self-esteem regarding my drawing systemically beaten out of me during my last three years of high school, I’m not a bad illustrator and with a bit of training, might be able to do something with it. (High school also tried to squash my belief in my writing abilities. However, years of fan fiction writing has resulted in my writing-ego being of titantium strength. I can write rings around anyone. I blame all the adults praising my Buffy-writing 11 year old self. I was a precocious little scamp.)

I applied for a retail job I never ever thought I’d get… and I got an interview. On one hand, yay, job! Money! Independence! On the other hand, I hate stupid people, and someone who treated me pretty badly in the past works there.

But when I remember that, I also remember I’m an ironclad bitch these days, in comparison to five years ago, so I’ll be fine. Somehow I evolved from sad-kitten-person to honeybadger.

I just wish I had enough money to buy myself some ironclad-bitch shoes to wear to the interview. It would make me feel better.

I think maybe the cold is restricting oxygen to my brain. Just FYI.

Bits & Pieces

Well, I came back from Hawks Nest early because the place was boring and I needed an internet connection to do my homework. So, I’ve been on my own since Tuesday. And this house is quite scary when you’re alone. ::whimpers:: But Dad’s on the train home today, so it’s all good. I just need to clean up and get dressed and stuff before 3 p.m. ::glances uneasily at clock:: I can do it. Just need to make some updates and stuff.

I got a new fanlisting! Dark Angel episode 10 “Art Attack”. I’m calling it “Professionals.” I really must get that done today and update my fanlistings. Maybe I can apply for a Lizzie McGuire episode too. That would be cool.

Oh! Oh! I found the posters for The Matrix Revolutions! If you aren’t afraid of a little spoiler, click heres and begin your worship! Only… um, 27 days until it’s at the cinema! ::dances wildly:: Wow, that sounds dirty…

Well, I have absolutely nothing left to babble about. Well, actually, I leave my babbling for my livejournal. I’ve finishing thinking coherent thoughts.

October’s Here

I cannot believe it’s already October. Man, time flies when you’re buried under a pile of fanlistings. Hehe

Well, I’m going away tomorrow. I know, you’ll all miss me for the entire seven days I’m gone. But never fear! Mum rented me a laptop for a week – so I can do “school work” *giggle* Hell no. I’ve got some fic that badly need updating, and yeah, I will have to do some school work, I suppose. I mean, I had to get a new text book for my Geography assignment and it cost Mum almost $50, which means I’ll actually have to use it. Damnit.

Well, anyways, I went to Chatswood in Sydney on Wednesday and had my hair done. It actually looked good. Now, two days later? Not so great, but oh well. All good things come to an end, infinitely sooner than we’d like. Anyway, I went to Alannah Hill and got the most beautiful bracelet (also leading to my current state of broke-ness). It’s gold with little pink diamontes. And I got a new notebook. That’s it. Amellia got the Hilary Duff CD which rocks, but I’m broke, so I’ll have to wait till my birthday, damnit.

Okay, technical stuff. My fanlisting collective is up – presenting Wicked. And I have way too many fanlistings to get done this weekend *sigh*. I have to build Zane, Zane’s Garage, Art Attack and Jondy/Zack *moans pathetically* Fanlistings are more addictive than crack cocaine. Well, I’ve never had crack cocaine, but I bet it’s not as addictive as fanlistings.

Sick Days

Was up till midnight last night. Damn flu. I watched “Loser”. That is such an awesome movie. Love it to pieces.
Probably Jason Bigg’s best film.

Anyway, I had the worst night, got absolutely no sleep and I was back online at 8:30 a.m, which is obscenely early for me. Within half an hour, I’d read all new – and relevant – fic additions to FF.Net, checked my forums and my friends’ ljs and realised that I had nothing left to do. So I went fanlisting crazy!

The “Longer” by Delta Goodrem fanlisting is found here and called Maybe. And Sunk (the PotC Jack’s Sunken Boat fl) can be found here. And I’ll never apply for another fanlisting again, damnit. I like updating my fls by hand and it takes so long now because I have 14 finished and 4 on upcoming.

I’m feeling quite nasty and I should go and have a shower and make my bed. Mum’s in an absolutely foul mood, cutting me no slack whatsoever, which vexes me.

The Beginning of My Successful Avoidance of All Compulsary Activities

Okay, does everyone know about Fame? My grade’s musical? The one I managed not to be involved in whatsoever? Hehe, I got photos! And they are up at T-L for a limited time! (Aka, I have better things to do with my site than give free publicity to a bunch of miscreants.)

School was crappy today, but when is it not? The gym was fun, Anita rocks. Um, I’ve become addicted to “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls … um, yeah. I’ll just be uploading a lot of graphics and stuff on my fansigns page, which is where all the graphics people send me go. Blah.

Working on a Faith fic, “Iris.” Well, I won’t call it “Iris.” But to the song, “Iris.” Why is the song even called “Iris,”? Anyone know? Anyone at all? Hehe, fun :D

I’m going back to Sydney tomorrow for the day! Mum wants to do some shopping, so I thought I’d tag along and get some more shoes to go with my jeans. Sportsgirl have some bitching pink ballet-slipper style flats I must have. And I’d like a copy of the Animatrix so I can make screencaps.

It was so annoying in the library today; I’d just pulled up the picture I needed to print off, and we lost power, the internet was screwed and I couldn’t even get the picture back because the school computers don’t save the history. I was so mad, almost an hour wasted tracking down a picture! And I didn’t even get to print it out!  :angry:

Okay, stuff to do, songs to sing and … ooh, a tim tam…

Bain of My Existence

I’m so not in the mood to discuss Sydney. Basically, we drove up late, I went and saw Reloaded for the third time, went to bed and on Sunday, we did copious amounts of shopping. And I came home sick. Other random facts about my trip to Sydney: we saw Maid in Manhatten, which is pretty good. Lunch and dinner at the hotel was revolting. Breakfast was quite good, at a French patisserie at Wooloomooloo. We saw Russell Crowe’s $12 million apartment, and I think it’s pretty overrated. Mosman is an excellent place to show. I got a new teddy bear named Cookie. I love bears. He’s so huggable!

I have to go back to school tomorrow. Does everyone know what that means? *g* Yeah, The Source Code will be getting some updates. Gah, I hate school. Or, I hate the people. The classes aren’t too bad. My art task this semester is excellent, because I can twist it around to be all about Trinity, Syl and Lara Croft. Gender and Identity. Basically, my piece is going to be one of two designs…

The first is a painting of a girl staring at something. Around her are pictures of female action heros. And over the top of her face, I’m printing off some lyrics onto clear plastic and sticking them on. I don’t know what song yet – any suggestions? But this idea is to focus that girls are getting more of a go as the action hero.

The second idea is to paint The Lady in Red leaning against the wall, and hand write the lyrics to “Fighter” onto it. This is the whole idea that even though there are a lot of successful women in the world, there are those that are struggling. (For those not in the know, the Lady in Red is sort of a blonde prostitute-ish figure… oh, go rent the Matrix.)

I went on a site-building bender today. Different Side of Me is an archive of my Buffy fic. I quite like this site, currently featuring Eliza Dushku.

Also added Wallpapers, Livejournal and Forum icons to the “You” section. I’ll make more icons soon (all icons can be used for the new version of MSN – Version 6) – if you have any requests, I’m more than happy to try and make you an icon. Just ask :)

Wow, longer update than planned…

Free As a Bird!

I’ve just realised I have a whole day at home and not a bloody thing to do. I’m feeling a lot better today and totally wired!

So, I’m chatting to mussed and Nicky. I’ll improve my site some more, and make some buttons for other people out of sheer boredom. And I’ll finish PissOff. Before some rabid Dark Angel fan cuts off my face with a cork-screw… I know, that was a revolting mental image and I apologise.

I’m going to Sydney! tomorrow for the night. Obviously not as much fun as it would be if I wasn’t sick, but I mean, Sydney for a whole night! Shopping and excitement! I’m hoping I can get a copy of the Animatrix, because I want to make more screencaps.

I’m just finishing my bit of the Mary Sue epilogue so I can send it to Ally. ::blushes:: totally my fault it isn’t posted by now, but I blame my muses. But it’s sent and I’m an almost free girl. Very chilly here. Cake would be nice. Or pizza. Huh, now Ally’s (who is Nicky) is going to bed, damnit :( I’ll talk to her tonight, I guess :D I’m going to make some more buttons and do some more work on this site.

Ou revoir.

More Drama

I got a nasty shock today when I went to The Hardline. The HLers are such a nice group of people. Really. Friendly, honest and just some of the nicest people I’ve had the privledge of knowing. And someone came and totally abused everyone’s trust. I definatly think some of the coppertops that join will be taken with a grain of salt. Danascully summed it up, “So goodnight, Hardliners… and remember, we’re still a family of sorts, even when one of us turns traitor. Especially then. Aww, sweet. But true.

And I want to apologise about my rant last night. I was sick and feeling quite fragile, which probably wasn’t the best time to be checking flames. I know, my logic is flawed. But yeah. That fic was meant to be a parody, I’m sorry very few other people realised this, but yeah. I’m not getting back into it. Lexie + Fragile and Sick = Unneeded Rant.

Hiccups suck. Honest. I’ve had them for … 39 minutes. They are irritating me beyond belief.

I am making buttons. And lj icons. I just get sidetracked. Badly. Also, adding some fanart. And some more fic. And a ‘language’ section so that people can understand my specially designed brand of slang. Yeah, I’m bored out of my skull. I mean, I’ve almost finished “How To Piss Off An X5 In Eleven Easy Steps” which is a monument to how completely bored I am. It’s exciting that I’m finishing it though. I’ve been working on it for ages, and ages.

Twisted-Logic has a new affiliate! Alina from Kalime . Awesome site, I love it :D

I’m off to work on T-L and finish PissOff.

Colour Me Amused

I had the blood test done today and the results come back Friday. I hope I haven’t got glandular fever because that would be icky. Wow, that was eloquent. But it definately wouldn’t be a good thing.

I’ve watched all … four Aladdin videos we own and I wish wish wish I owned more. But Robin Williams didn’t do the voice for Genie in the short episodes, which is disappointing. But I totally get why he didn’t.

Hmm, what else? I’ve been kinda sick to do anything particularly spectacular. I read a little fic. I wrote a little. I’m split three ways right now – I’m writing a Trinity saga that sucks. I’m writing a Faith saga that sucks – with style. And I’m writing the final chapter of a Dark Angel. Pfft. A lot of the flames “Divinity” has gotten so far are really, really nasty. And I know that is the point of a flame, but if it was from someone really excellent at writing, I’d hang my head and understand that, yes I will never rock as much as they do. But some of these delinquents can’t string a sentence together which depresses me.

Now, I will pull rank. I am a good writer. Aren’t I a snobby vain little brat, telling everyone that? Well, it’s true. For a while there, I was single handedly keeping certain areas of Dark Angel fic alive (now Jacey’s joined me in the plight of a decent Jondy/Zack or Syl/Krit). Really, a mark of a good reader is to see past the Mary Sue and see if the writing is quality. I tried to make the story as insipid as possible. Oh well…

So, answers to questions I’ve been asked in my flames. Do I go by the nickname “Divinity”? No, I don’t. I wouldn’t ever. Why did I name my character Divinity? Because of two reasons – A) Divinity sounds similar to Trinity, which adds to the Mary-Sue-ess. And B) Divinity is my most hated class at school.

And, I think Keanu Reeves is hot. I think he’s great as Neo. But, as so eloquently put by Meg/Froggie, I don’t want to line myself up to bang Neo. As far as I’m concerned, that’s Trinity’s job. Because I hate Divinity with the fire of a thousand suns too! I don’t like the girl.

I’m just waiting for someone to burn-inate Divinity, Ariella and B’randii ;)

I’m Actually Watching Dust Settle

Went to the doctor’s today. Either I’ve got a virus or, possibly, glandular fever. Blah. But I get at least 2 more days off. Normally, a godsend. Now? Wonderful. More excrutiating boredom.

I attacked the Source Code some more and now, I’m kicking Twisted-Logic into shape. Working on a series of new buttons – so I can ditch the black and white Trinity one because I detest it. I’ve also made a couple of questionable Matrix lj icons, and some 64×64 forum buttons. I’ll post those up some time today, I hope.

You know what? I have absolutely nothing to say. I’m going to write fic instead.

Never Thought I’d Look Forward To School

What a day. Got up. Went online. Watched Aladdin. Got back online. Updated and re-layout-ed The Source Code (white is the new pink, lmao).

Started making the lj icons *winces* yes, well. The first one is just plain odd. Go here to witness something that’s amusing for less that 20 seconds. Ahh, I have a warped sense of humour. And I seriously hope these entries get more interesting when I go back to school… *sigh*.

New affiliate! Well, we lost an affiliate (Leila). But T-L’s newest affiliate is … Janet from FuzzyPinkSlippers.Com! Yay!

Damn School Semesters

Today was pretty dull. I slept, I got up and I watched Disney movies – Beauty and the Beast, Oliver and Company, Pooh’s Grand Adventure, and two videos of old Pooh episodes. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside, hehe.

But yeah. Disney is cool. I love Aladdin. To pieces. I think it’s my favourite Disney film. Jasmine rocked, Genie was hysterical and Iago was madness :D But yeah, Disney is just plain excellent.

I’ve just downloaded MSN Plus for MSN Version 6. YAY! Except, I think it has ads, which bites. Wait… looking … hmm… Well, if you’ve got MSN 6, and really loved MSN Plus, get it. Otherwise, don’t bother. But I plan to spend the next 30 minutes thinking up witty auto-messages. Oooh, and more MSN 6 icons.

Which brings me to the coming-soon-to-TL part of this update. Livejournal and MSN 6 icons. I’ll do a couple of Matrix ones, some Dark Angel ones, some Avril Lavigne ones… any requests? Just drop me a line somewhere and I’ll see what I can do. I’m pretty flexible. Anyways, let me know. Anything I make will be uploaded here and will be free to take (but labeled “t-l”). But icons are coming!

Nothing else is happening, except I go back to school on Tuesday, damnit. Oh well, the term can’t be that long, can it?

Praise Ye, Panadol!

Gah! I’m trying to update T-L’s fanlistings, and I keep uploading the pages to the wrong site. *Tears* God, today is sucking already and I just got up. Luckily, the fanlistings mistake can be fixed. It’s the principle of the thing!

I went bowling yesterday – the power of Panadol still exists! It was kinda cool. There was the jukebox thing, which played the song and the video clip on the TVs that were around. We played heaps, except my sister kept choosing really old songs – Like “Drop The Pilot” and “Senses Working Overtime.” It was very evil of her. Anyways, my cousin Amanda won the first game, and I won the second. It was fun.

What else? Absolutely nothing. Being sick is the horrible-est thing in the world, and I’m stuck at home, cleaning. Because Mum and Amellia left at the crack of dawn, I’m meant to clean up after them. AGH! How irritating.

I really need to write another Matrix fic. I’ve started The Sweetest Thing, which I’m beginning to hate passionately, but meh. It’s seven pages I’ve already written. I like writing Trinity but I’m not very good at it. Maybe I should become a professional Mary-Sue writer, I seem to be good at that *hl*

I should really get offline so Mum can ring – I seem to have misplaced my mobile phone, hmph. I was going to do the Friday Five now, but the new set isn’t up yet. Damn timezones!

Busy, busy, busy

I went and saw “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” for the third time today. I think Hilary Duff is such an awesome singer. And I bought the movie’s soundtrack, which rocks. Volare is one of my favourite songs now – it means “to fly” in Italian, I looked it up (I know, I’m such a geek.)

And now I have plans! *Gasp* Tomorrow I’m going to see my Grandmother. Wednesday, I’m going to Sydney and hopefully be near a Reloaded-showing cinema, Thursday, I’m going bowling with my cousins and Friday, we’re going to go and see my other grandparents. And then I go back to school on Tuesday, I have FAME rehearsals till Thursday. We preform it Thursday and next Friday night Mum is taking Amellia and I to Sydney because Dad is flying back in. Busy, busy busy.

And in 7 weeks I have final exams *moans* Ugh. Someone has a serious lack of organizing skills, at school. Grr.

And I’m starting Maths tutoring and extra Art this semester. And piano lessons, and singing and cello lessons. And I’ve joined the gym, and I have to go a minimum of 3 times a week to keep my membership. Ugh. Busy-ness is so overrated.

Lol, my feet are cold, so I’m going to go to bed now :D

Bits and Pieces

Okay, so I thought I better explain Mr. Cuddles – he’s a blue and white squeaky rubber blow fish toy. Our art mascot. He’s very cool. Though Leila doesn’t like him very much. He belongs to a girl called Zoe who has a mad site but I can’t remember the URL.

Dawson’s Creek was really good tonight – Audrey and Pacey finally got together! Yayness! And Jacey was online but I missed her ’cause dad was really late home from work, which majorly sucked. And I’m totally dying to talk to Shannon and Ashley and Jacey on MSN. Ugh.

My exams start in 14 days and I’ve done studying. No distractions this time. :D. I’m also adding reviews of CDs, Movies and books to this site, rants and wonderful fun stuff! Anyways…whoa, I just watched the Tali “Whatever” video clip – MAD-ASS!

Happy Days

I am renaming this blog. Any ideas? Two of my ideas so far are ‘digital diva’ or ‘dream’. Any suggestions or comments on either of these names – tag me!

I got my braces off! How very extremely COOL! Well, only the top ones so far, but all is well! Ceramics was totally cool, we met a really sweet grade 8 girl (really cool, too) named Olivia. And there’s a new section of T-L.Com going up called “Dee’s World.” Dee is one of my 3 minions…more content up tonight, I swear!

Um, what else?…Sixteen days til exams! Eeep!
