Either way, it's a long story as to how I got to the link below. And since this is a blog, I can tell you. Grin.

For the first time ever, I’ve started a forum. I kinda didn’t want to for a long time because, “Build it and they will come.” isn’t as true as they would have believe and I hate failing.
Either way, I did it now because of a light requirement. AFF currently doesn’t have a “reply” button for any reviews that I’m given to any of their stories. For those people who gave me an e-mail address I sent them an e-mail to thank them and answer their questions and such, but for those that didn’t give me a way to reach them, I left a comment on my review page for them and anyone who might have had the same impression or concern.
But yesterday, or was it the day before, I got a letter from AFF. They said that I couldn’t do that. Something about inflating my review count. So the question is how I talk back to my reviewers? The answer was a forum. So I got one.
As you can see, if you followed me around, I’m using the the same Avatar that I have over at FF.
Well I did and it’s nice on that side of the fence of AFF. There I saw that a post that changes were on their way to the story side and that AFF and FF aren’t related like I, and a lot of people, thought. AFF was made to have no restrictions. You can be as adult or G rated as you wanted. At FF you only get G – PG15 kinda. We still post what you would call NC-17 – XX. I heard that those that go caught go booted, but I never saw it happen.
Anyway, I have two threads now. If that is what you call them. One is the feedback of my on going story, and the other one is to promote one of my other stories that I have on there. I got a good amount of hits for it, but no reviews. None. Over 5000 hits and no reviews and votes. they have a voting system. So even if you don’t feel like talking, typing, you could give stars for how well you liked it. But none. I only have one to get it started. But it didn’t.
So I’m hoping this forum helps with that. If it does, then I’ll put one up for each of my others.
I feel tired now. I thought that I could make it until after I went for my doctor’s apartment.
Yes I’m going. I have an appointment with an allergy doctor today at 11am. I was told not to take any meds so that when they do tests on me they could find out what was setting me off.
Either way, I was able to stay up really long the other day so I thought I could today, but I feel like crashing. So wrong. When I need to be up I can’t.
Oh, did you hear? It’s 9 degrees outside right now. I’m not walking any further than I have to. Get to the doctor’s then come back home.
I’m going to eat and hope that helps.
I'm back with something from somewhere else. See what happens when I make new friends. :)
Either way, it's a long story as to how I got to the link below. And since this is a blog, I can tell you. *Grin*.
Well here is the story.
I have started to use the program Trillian again. If it wasn’t for a few bugs that I keep finding each time I use it, I would have it posted with my list of other ‘must have software’ that I have over there on the left hand side of this blog. But I think I did do a blog about it and and other web based IM combo service named Meebo this a month back I think.
Either way, I’ve been having issues with sending files over it to most of my friends. Not all, just a few and it doesn’t matter if they are on the same network or not. So I just went and used their messenger and it didn’t make a difference. So It has to be something up on MSN’s side or something.
So for days I haven’t been able to share files this way and it’s starting to really tick me off. So I was trying again today hoping that it would just start working like how it just stopped, after I messed with my firewall of course. But no luck. But the file that my friend was trying to send me had and interesting name, and I wanted to see what it looked like.
So he sent me the link that he got it from and I was left to wander to find this pic because the site doesn’t have a search. And it’s a big site.
So I’m slowly making my way through it and find some really funny stuff. I then finds myself looking at this one.

It looks like a carbon copy of a pic I took up the block from me on Easternparkway. And here it is.
Ok, maybe not carbon. I guess I just looked at that angle and didn’t take the shot.
But the bottom shot is to prove that there is a car under there. I like to think that, that other person got the shot two days before me.
Ok. I’ve messed up my sleeping pattern so I could go to sleep on time and stay asleep until morning, and it didn’t work. I woke up with all the bad feelings of my hives again. This is when I remembered that I was actually avoiding sleeping at normal times to odd cut back on how bad the hives attached me.
The joints in my fingers were really hurting me this time. At least my lips didn’t swell and I only had two itch hive spots this time. One on my upper thigh and one near the crook of my arm. And the sick inner feeling wasn’t so great also.
At least I got some bread pudding after I got out of my 45 mins shower. It was half heat therapy for the hives, they seem to go away if all over me is the same temp, normally very hot. And two, I’m going to try and find a doctor that takes my health insurance and go see them. My cousin said that I should see a doctor that specializes in allergies. Great. Where am I going to find one of those? Yellow pages I guess.
I’m thinking of printing out the pics that I have of me from when I use to break out a lot, but I think that I’ll save the ink until they ask for the pics.
Ok, now I have to go work on my posting my next chapter. It was suppose to be posted before 3am. It’s now 5:18am. Today may just be a very bad day for me.
It’s a bit early, but this is my gift to me for my birthday.
I turn 34, may the world help me, on the 12th of this month. I was going to ask when the 12th is, but since no talks back to me, I went to check it out for myself. It’s this week. Wednesday. Closer than I thought. I’m still living in, “Oh, it’s the first week of the new year. The 1st was just the the other day.” Dumb.
So, *exhale* what do I have to say? I’m going to the movies. I’ll see if Hayden can come. He can buy me dinner.
I got my new one shot from my beta at the end of last week and I posted it the next day… so I got it Thursday I think, and posted it on Friday before my mom started to say stuff about the sun having already set.
Yes, that is still going on. I’m just happy she didn’t ask me about going to church with her yesterday. So the one shot was a HP (Harry Potter) slash (gay/yaoi) fanfic was posted at DA and FF.net. Firstly, I found out that you do put a ‘,’ before ‘and’. The the odd thing is that I use to do it, but when I first asked my beta to beta something for me, and she said it was not so. So I’ve spent so long taking out all of those ‘,’ that I almost think that I can’t stop, but I’m learning to let it to go now. But I think that I’m going to finish my other story with out fixing that.
Now as for the new story no one has said one word to me about the copy posted on DA. Not even a fave vote. As for FF.net, I got three faves there and one cute, little review.
What else? Oh, I’ve been playing with fractals for wallpapers. They can be found over at DA. One of them has gotten a hundred hits. For me that is a lot in less then a week.
I posted something of a journal over at DA also. I didn’t feel like I had much to say over there, so I just posted some interesting views on gay marriages that I found over at FF.net. And over at scribd, I’ve organized my stories a bit more. I now have a folder for original works, HP fanfics and my Inuyasha novel. Oh yeah, not all my HP fanfics are slash. Just two of the four. One is a very …. odd three some with Luna being the cause and another one that is mostly about Ron and Hermione with a bunch of different people learning about bits of it across three chapters. It started off as a one shot, but someone asked me to continue it. At first I just went with it, with out know what I could do, but I looking back, I’m glad I expanded on it.
Oh, that last story I talked about was done a while ago. It’s name is “Couple’s Conflict” and it can be found at FF and Scribd. What did I call the one with Luna? I have to look.. brb.
Found it. I thought I had it on FF or Scribd but I don’t. I moved it from FF to AFF (AdultFanFiction) to save my FF account since I consider it ..ohh.. strong maybe? But now I have to add it to my Scribd set. Might as well. I just have to add page numbers to it along with some colour and better subject line weight.
Ok, I’m about to go and something gay story related. Sorry, I have a very narrow sets of interests with a guy here to distract and school being out. Speaking of which, school that is, I don’t go back until the 14th of Feb.
Later people. Enjoy the rain, it’s better than the snow we got just after christmas.
If you some how missed it, Happy New Year! Yeah, the hype is all gone.
That issue with uploading pics to blogger is still there. I’m sure it’s an issue with AT&T. And if I learned anything from the last time I had this issue with them and uploading to blogger is that I don’t walk into a store and ask them what gives. They had no clue what I was talking about. They do not get this kind of training. So I’m going to have to call in and see if someone there can help me if not at least know what is going on.
In the rest of my world I got my health insurance card this week. Monday I think. No it was Friday. I took it with me to party. So next week I’ll be going to see a doc some where about these hives things. I just hope it doesn’t mean that I’m diabetic now.
Over in Deviantart I’ve started to post fractals. A friend there, a very new one really, got me a link to this program Apophysis. Actually he just told me about it and I found it myself. It’s free and it wasn’t so hard for me to do something. Granted, off the bat I don’t have a clue of what I want to do, so I mess with a few thing that it gives me, then from there I use what I get to come up with something I like. It will be the day when I know how to show up to the program with something I know I want to make and know how to make it.
So I have a few of those fractals now. So I made a folder for them over in Deviantart and I’m quite happy with them. But then again, if I wasn’t I wouldn’t have posted them.
My story is coming along well. I’ve posted a chapter every day since I finished school, today at 12:30am I posted chapter 13. I post it in two places. DA (deviantart) and Adultfanfiction (aff). I’ve also started to do some work on my old Inuyasha story. If you think I’ve stopped you were so wrong. I’m posting it in three places now. Because of my posting over at aff, I realize that I have to do some html editing since I’m uploading my chapter in web page format so it can keep my formatting and they don’t accept doc or openoffice files. I forgot what their extension is at the moment.
So I’m up to chapter 22 in one place and I went through half of them and fixed the error. It’s not a mistake, it’s an error in how different things show the same thing differently. So I’ve had to strip out almost all the things that made my spaces between paragraphs twice as big. I’ll finish the other 12 a next day. That site doesn’t seem to get much traffic so I’m good for a day or so… and if someone does tell me something, that will be great. It will be my first comment. But I’m sure I won’t get one. I have one person that has faved it there so far. Oh, for the record I have posted up to chapter 73 I think of my Inuyasha slash fanfic. I’m working on chapter 81 now. Which is sad. But what can I say. I had school. Maybe if I wasn’t working on “Love’s Love” then “Daddy’s Acceptance” I would have been done by now. Oh well. There is always the summer time.
Providing I’m not doing some kind of work. I’m hopping to have some kind of out the house activity other then school starting sometime this year. I just wish that it was in a publishing house. But I will have to try my ‘field’ first. I’m not completely over being an architect, I just don’t think I’m capable of doing the full title of the job. I’m sure that math class which is really called “Strength of Materials” I what is throwing me. I joke that I can just pay and engineer to make sure that I come up with will stand, but I would like to know that I can do it. Also the test to become a licensed architect is very, very daunting. Maybe that is why they wait so long to give it you. Let you get some experience first.
Depending on how much schooling you have before going out into the work place or when you stopped your continuing education and the number of years you have spent in the 'field’ determines when you are allowed to take the test. If you want to open your own company then you need to take it and I’m sure it could help you ask for higher pay.
Over to something a little funny.
On new years I danced and sang and it was almost like how it use to be. I don’t know if I didn’t hurt my back because it was better, or because I wasn’t flinging my body all over the place. Either way, on the way to club I was complaining because my shoes hurt and I was cold and snow was in my none snow approved shoes. But when I got there and very carefully used the bathroom, I was fine. I should have kissed him then.
I forgot what I go getter I use to bed. I reminded myself a day later of course. I will go for it next time.
Anyway, I have to set up another date to hang out with Hayden. I think he saw my hair in curls for the first time Friday. He kept touching it. It was odd but I was happy to have someone’s attention. Not that I wasn’t friendly with most of the girls at the party once we found the place. I even had a nice chat with a few guys, but since most of them seem to know each other, I was a little left out, but they did try to include me and I did my best to get in there and talk to people also. I even sprayed silly string out of can. Something I can now say I have done.
I just think it I felt a bit on the outside because I turned down everything that had alcohol in it. I don’t want to drink, but there was champagne and rum spiked ice-cream and bottles of other stuff.
Hayden had fun. Just the ride home could have been better. We ended up on the same set of trains as these … I don’t even know what to call them. They were kids for sure. But rude, loud, disrespectful, annoying and in need of a back slap from who ever they live with. We had to transfer between three trains and they were there for each one and most of the time in the same car.
In the last one, I was sure someone was going to say something since it was on the shuttle there are only two cars and we were pretty packed in there. Even Hayden started to say something, but I tried to keep him quite. He doesn’t need anything ending up on record with him being a teacher and all.
I think that’s it. Oh, my mom, is still bugging me about going to church. That fight will rage on until I move out. There is now way to get around it.
Well there you go. My fist real blog for the year. Take care people.
