another long story

Squee!!! *hugs blog* Ahh, it’s so good to be back. Again. 😀

The reason for the downtime is another loooong and decidedly frustrating story. Let me just say that Brianne and Becca are AWESOME. I’m hosted on their server now and things seem to be looking up.

I still have tons of sites to upload but I couldn’t resist a quick update. Seeing my pretty blue Greymatter makes me all giddy.

Hee! 😉

moving… again

I’m moving back to my old semi-dedicated server. It’s not a particularly interesting story — I’ll just say that all the effort I put into changing hosting companies was pretty much useless because my domains take up more space, bandwidth and server resources than a normal shared hosting plan can offer.

Oh well, at least it’s a 3 day weekend so I’ll have time to take care of this move and work out all the kinks.


So anyway, that’s what’s going on — hopefully the domain will be up and running on the old server in the next 24 hours…

and we’re back… again

Ahhhh… my blog is back. YIPPEE. 🙂

To make a long story short…

My former host frustrated me. They had to reinstall the server I was hosted on because of “issues.” What those issues are, I have no idea. All I know was that they didn’t provide me with satisfactory explanations AND it was causing me downtime, which did not make me happy. I’m with a new host now so I’m crossing my fingers that I won’t have to move… ever again. It’s such a pain — I mean, I still have lots of sites to upload! My head hurts just thinking about it.

Oh! I have 3 Gmail accounts to give away — anyone interested? Just comment with your first name, last name and current email address and I’ll send one as soon as I can. So far, I think GMail is really great. The pages load quickly, emails are grouped together, and the interface is clean and simple. I’ve never used Hotmail or Yahoo so I can’t compare — but so far, so good!

the non-blog

Holy moly — I can’t believe it’s already July! Where did the year go?!?

Why is it that when I actually sit down at my computer to blog, I can’t think of a single thing to blog about? But when I’m sitting on the train or out and about, blog ideas pop into my head and I think “You must remember this!” And of course, I don’t. Sucks to be me. Or maybe it sucks to be you because you’re reading my mindless drivel. Hee. 😉

Anyway, I have a new shopping addiction: buying make-up. Specifically MAC makeup. Gah. It’s so girly and crazy and damn expensive but it’s just so much fun. I love experimenting with the eyeshadow colors and I’m such a sucker for lip gloss. Someone seriously needs to take away my credit card because it’s just way too easy for me to stop by a nearby department store during lunch to buy more. It’s a sickness, I tell you.

Hmm… I just realized that tomorrow is pay day. I *must* resist all temptation to go spending all my money immediately. I mean, I need groceries! Apparently, I also need priorities.

For even more randomness, This or That Tuesday:

1. Lemonade or Ice Cold Beer? Lemonade. I don’t drink alcohol — it makes me giggly and silly and just, ugh.
2. Swimming pool or beach? Beach. I love the whole feeling of going to the beach — getting sand all over your stuff, lying on a beach towel getting some sun and hanging out with lots of people.
3. Long weekends here & there, or a 2-week vacation? 2-week vacation. It gives you the chance to relax and explore, which isn’t something you can really do with just a few days.
4. Destination: Acapulco or Hawaii? Hawaii. I am in love with Hawaii.
5. Destination: Mountains or Beach? Beach.
6. Hotel/motel/B&B or camping? Hotel. I need running water. This girl doesn’t do “roughing it.” 😛
7. Carefully planned vacation, or play it by ear? Carefully planned vacation. I’m not much of a risk-taker when it comes to vacations. I need to plan everything in advance and make sure I get good deals and such.
8. Sneakers or sandals? Sandals
9. Air-conditioning or fans? Air conditioning
10. Concerts in the park or baseball games? Concerts in the park. I’m sorry to say that baseball can just get way too long for me to sit through.

Oh! A question — I was wondering if anyone knows of any sites like Angelfire where you can upload videos with huge file sizes (like 8mb)? I’m trying to alleviate some of the bandwidth strain here at Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

evil greymatter

Freaking greymatter.

The damn thing just crapped out on me last night. I discovered that one of my entry files from early last year was corrupted somehow. I didn’t have time to fix it so I left it the way it was — sorry if anyone was trying to comment and it wouldn’t work! As soon as I got home from work today, though, I put on Kelly Clarkson’s new CD (which is amazing, btw) and proceeded to spend the next 3 hours reinstalling greymatter, deleting the corrupted files, editing every single entry file and renaming every single entry file. What a pain in the ass. I mean, I have over 200 entries! I even taped all my Tuesday night TV because I wanted to get it fixed so badly. Gah, must watch Buffy — I want to see Faith! Anyway, I think (I hope!) the blog is fully functional again. I lost my 2 most recent entries but that’s okay, I just didn’t want to lose over a year’s worth of my ranting and raving. 😀

my bloggity blog

Ummm, so I hope everyone is having a spectacular Valentine’s Day. 🙂 I’m just killing some time — Rob is watching the Laker game and then we’re going to go see Daredevil! Very excited — I love Ben and Jen(nifer Garner, not J.Lo). Will do the Friday Five:

Explain why you started to journal/blog. No particular reason — I just wanted to have a place to write down all my random thoughts.

Do people you interact with day to day or family members know about your journal/blog? Why or why not? Less than 10 people in my “real” life know about my site… my boyfriend, my best friends, my cousin and a few others. And I’d like to keep it that way — I haven’t really had to “rant” about anything but if there ever comes a time, I like to think that my blog is the place where I can be completely honest about anything.

Do you have a theme for your journal/blog? Nope — I write about anything and everything that comes to my head. I do tend to write about television quite a bit though. What can I say? I’m a TV whore. 😛

What direction would you like to have your journal/blog go in over the next year? Eh… my blog has no focus.

Pimp five of your favorite journals/blogs. I can’t choose! All my dailies are my favorites. 🙂

delusional shipper

Oh hell. Let me just say that I am officially putting on my delusional Pacey/Joey shipper hat and throwing a party. Yes, even with the completely snooze-worthy episode tonight, I am optimistic that February sweeps will be fun, fun, fun.

I forgot to mention that celebrated its one year anniversary last Thursday! Woohoo! Just a little shameless celebration for my domain. 🙂

version 10

I guess my unemployment is not in vain because I finally had the time to create another layout. So here it is — Version 10: The Girls of the WB. 🙂 I’m not too sure if I like it yet but whatever… I spent time on it so it’s going up. 😛

Speaking of new layouts, visit Cat and Marianne. Their new layouts rock. Yes they do.
