This journal is mostly friends only. However, all graphics entires will remain open, so don't worry...you can still see the icons ;)
Feel free to friend this journal for the graphics if you like, but I will probably not be friending anyone back unless you comment to this post, and we either know each other from somewhere (LJ, HIH/TG, or real life) or have at least a few things in common.

Thanks for visiting my journal!

Questions:

Okay so the new MacBook is affecting how my journal shows up. Anyone have any idea how/why the bars across the top of my journal (just below the header) now only show up as small boxes to the left side of the layout? I mean the boxes that say "truth is beauty" and the ones that show the title of each post....they used to be the width of the header, making the layout look all nice and uniform. Only on the Safari web browser, they only show up as smallish little boxes on the left, leaving the space they used to occupy as a pink gap that looks not quite right.


Also....does anyone know how to right-click, save-as in a Mac? I have tried right-clicking, but no save-as box appears. Nothing happens at all, actually, and I'm a little confused :/ Any tips? EDIT: The right-clicking has been solved! Apparently I just have to control-click, or I can drag & drop to my screen. Miraculous. Now if only I could solved the above problem.

So now I'm a criple.

This weekend, I decided moving my mini fridge from its place on the floor to the top of one of my dressers would be a good idea. I was wrong.
I dislocated my right shoulder.
Only, at the time, even though it hurt a lot, I thought I would just take some advil and a sleeping pill, and that when I woke up everything would be okay. I was so wrong. It was awful. I woke up at like 5 in so much pain I thought I might either just pass out or throw up just from turning over on my side. It was bad enough that I called my mom and asked her to take me to the ER, which she did. The doctor took one look at my oddly held arm and called for a bunch of X-rays, which showed my right arm to be very dislocated (it was hanging down in a forwards angle almost an inch or so away from the joint) and inflamed as well. He pushed and pulled it back into place (Holy Cow!!!!! Worst pain of my entire life!!!!!!), gave me a heavy dose + prescription of pain meds & anti-inflammatories, stuck it in a sling, and ordered me not to use it.
I am really good at the one handed peck method now.

Anyway that is all I can write for a while b/c I think I am getting carpal-tunnel (sp?) in my left arm. Ha. ttyl. ♥

Livejournal, thy name is so friggin' annoying you make me want to shoot myself in the face!

Anyone else having problems getting LJ to update, post comments, post in general, etc.....? Mine is acting like hell on a holiday. I was going to post these cute pictures from Thanksgiving but nooooo *imagine that was said very snottily* Scrapbook is in on making my life miserable as well. I keep getting an error message that says "database error" and has a bunch of numbers and crap. No idea what that means other than it annoys me :p *sigh* I temporarily am giving up. Blah.

Okay...evidently my ability to update is screwy too. Livejournal, you sketchy whore!!!! Give me my journal back!
"Error updating journal: Client error: This journal is temporarily in read-only mode. Try again in a couple minutes." ...oh, what does it mean?! *cries and bangs head against desk dramatically*

:p

Happy Thanksgiving!

I thought I would get my Thanksgiving post up now rather than tomorrow when I will probably be to busy to come online. (Watch - just because I said that and actually thought ahead for once, I'll have time. That's called irony.) Anyway, wishing all of you who are celebrating a happy day of eating turkey and relaxing with friends and family...and, if you're pokecharm, I wish you a day of good football games as well ;) *hugs flist*



Also, a few random icons of cities...mostly of my Chicago, but there are two from *pokes Mata* BERLIN! Because I'm taking German ♥ I wanted to do more but I got hungry thinking about tomorrow and ate my inspiration XD

Titles are overated.

I would kill for a good cup of coffee. Emphasis on the good part b/c I could care less if it tastes like tar. I want Starbucks. *sigh* I'm spoiled. And I should be working on my German homework, and an essay...and what am I doing? Posting graphics. In my defense, I made them last week :p So there. pokecharm's post earlier today just reminded me that they existed (thanks hon! *hugs*)....btw, she posted Hayden/Anakin icons so all the Star Wars fans who are lookin at this post going ^-^ ummm where is my Ani?!! Go see her. That is all. Thank you! *smooch*

...18 Natalie Potman/Padme Amidala icons

Inspired.

So I was listening to this really lovely song by Nicole Nordeman, "We Build", which talks about getting through the rough spots and painful days of relationships and coming out still knowing that they're the only person you want to be with despite everything (she wrote it to her husband), and I was inspired to take a break from my paper (I'm on page 2) and make this wall. Mostly just for myself, because I really love the lyrics of this song, but I thought I would share and also upload the song for anyone who wanted to hear it (she has one the lovliest voices ever, too, btw). of course, I realized too late that my widescreen is too big for the normal 1024x768 image...but oh well. I guess I'll share anyway!

A real entry.

Over the next few days I'm going to be doing some major flist cleaning-up. No worries: I am NOT de-friending anyone's normal journals unless they haven't updated in months or something XD Mainly, I am cleaning up all these extra communities that I used to belong to and such, and sorting out the RP-Journals from regular ones. If if friend-ed your RP journal, I would love to friend your regular journal instead, if you would like that too! Comment and let me know if thats the case ;)

In other news, I promised the lovely jennijube that I would actually post a picture that included my face, not just my back, lol. But before I do that, I wanted to do this meme that I've seen around LJ!
