Finally. A new layout. I think I’ve been using the previous layout since December 2009, so… this is long overdue! This one features Portal, which you can read about in the Site section. I also changed around the sections. Some have been rewritten/redone and some have been removed (though they might return later). I think I worked out all the kinks, but let me know if something doesn’t look right!
It’s Memorial Day weekend, and I’m so glad to have tomorrow off. We invited some friends over tomorrow for lunch. We’re going to be grilling burgers and bratwursts :) My fiance and I finally bought a grill (this one) a couple weeks ago. The sad thing is, when we moved into our new house last summer, I said, “the first thing we need to get is a grill”. Well, it took us a year to get around to it XD;; In addition to burgers and brats, we’ve also used it for steaks. We’d also like to try grilling vegetables and other meats like chicken, pork, and fish later on.
I’ve been keeping myself somewhat busy this weekend. Yesterday, I met with 2 more florists for our wedding. That’s still one of the major things I haven’t booked yet. Today, I helped my mom pick out a dress, also for our wedding. What’s annoying is that a lot of places with “mother of the bride” dresses… the styles look “too old” =/ She already looked at non-wedding dresses but didn’t really find one she liked. But! We picked one out today and ordered it, which is this one. I think it’s nice because it’s not “too young” and not “too old” either :3
And now, I need to go shopping for food for tomorrow XD I hope everyone is having a good weekend!
New layout! The previous layout was on here way too long, so I finally put a new layout together. (Yes, it’s again red and Asian-looking.) This layout features an image from the game, Okami. I also realize a lot of the content on this site hasn’t been updated in a while, which I’m going to try and work on during the holiday break!
I’m also happy to say that almost all of my Christmas shopping is done XD I started ordering gifts in November, and now I’m just waiting for some of the last items to arrive in the mail. Most of my online ordering has been done on Amazon, with a few things from ThinkGeek and ShanaLogic as well.
Something else that came in recently is the DSLR I mentioned in my previous post. Here it is! The Canon EOS 50D with a 28-135mm lens!
I spent today looking through its manual and trying it out on random things around the apartment. Like… toys!
Then my boyfriend and I took a walk at a trail near our place that runs along a creek, and took more pics there!
I still feel like there’s a lot more I can learn about this camera, and I want to use it more before deciding on what lens to buy next. Hopefully if I continue to experiment around with the settings, I’ll get the hang of it soon =)
It’s been a while since I last added any artwork or photos, so… here are a few! I finally got around to finishing that drawing I started of my cousin’s dog:
I also added a few photos of random finds. That’s why I believe in always carrying a camera on me. You never know what you’ll see that day.
In other news, I have Nine Inch Nails tickets! They’re going to be in San Antonio in a couple weeks, so my boyfriend, my friend Tina, and I decided to go. The tickets were $48 each. However, after tax, parking fees, processing fees, and for some reason, two facility fees, it ended up being $70 a ticket. Ugh, fees, they always get you with the extra fees.
Oh, and this is completely random and unrelated, but I’ve been playing Shadow Hearts Covenant lately and felt the need to add a caption to this scene.
I find Yuri’s sad emoticon way more amusing than I probably should.
