So I went to the world tour meat-up in NYC... It was super crowded. Central park is pretty awsome. Posting to DA journals from your phone is either extremely hard or I'm extremely dense.
Woot!I identified my "Darth Maul" spider! Yay! SHE is a Micrathena gracilis or "spined micranthena". Or, rather, all of them are, there's at least a dozen around my house... catching mosquitoes as fast as they can, I hope! (Go spidey, go!)
Anyway, I was able to identify her with the help of this site (you might not want to visit if you're scared of things with more then 4 legs): http://www.rochedalss.qld.edu.au/spiderphotos.htm Fortunately I didn't have to post because someone already had a spider just like mine. (Well good for me because I hate writing up posts like that.)
Anyway, yes, it's early, and I couldn't sleep... and now I have visions of creepie crawlies going through my head.
Sorry!...OK, sorry for spamming everyone again! I just want to get this done with and I took a couple of days off, so now I have to make up for it. I think I have about 6-10 pieces left to submit, and some of that will go in scraps.
Other then that, wow things have changed. I now go to school (good old community college, I signed up after classes had started and they still had to take me). My schedule looks like this:
Monday -- Computer Science (Java) - 5 PM - 9:30 PM
Tuesday/Thursday -- Calculus w/ Analytical Geometry - 7 PM - 9 PM
Not a heavy course load, by any means! I also have an on line/distance education class... Unix I. And I so almost had a Digital Photography class (that's what I was really signing up for!) but it turned out to be full, and there was no way to tell without signing up..so damn. http://www.toddmessegeephoto.com/ This guy would have been my teacher. Pretty wild, eh? The only silver lining I can find to that class being full is that it's an early morning class, so I woul
Steven F. Udvar-Hazy CenterOK, so today I went to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, which is part of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. For those of you who have been to the National Air and Space Museum on the Mall in Washington, D.C., it's part of that (no they're not closing the location on the mall)... but it's MUCH bigger, and it focuses more on exhibiting actual air- and space-craft, instead of exhibits that are just about air and space. All of the air- and space-craft on exhibit at the Udvar-Hazy Center is the real deal, there are no mock-ups or replicas. Almost all of it was actually in use for whatever it was ment for (commercial aircraft was in use carrying passengers, military aircraft was out in the feild, spacecraft was in space), although some of it (especially the space craft) is an actual craft that could have been used but wasn't, for whatever reason, or it was a training-only craft.
Here's a couple of highlights of what they have on display:
Omg wtf!OK so OMG! WTF! I'm going to actually upload stuff. Wow. And what I'd really like is if everyone would tell me which pictures look the best... It's all going to be photos, 23 or so in total although it's going to take me a couple of days to think of descriptions and upload them all (dial-up is painful). Anyway, I'd be especially happy if everyone could give me a list of their favourite three or something along those lines. And yes, this has a point, but I'm not telling.
(Also pardon any poor spelling, my spell checker died on me...probably from over-work.)
P.S. There were no misspellings, excepting "OMG" "WTF" and "favourite"... and Spellbound works again. Hallelujah.
Grrr. Beach, and other stuff.OK, I'm seriously stressed... Richy is supposed to be here in 2 hours, give or take... Which is A Good Thing, definitely. But everything else has gone wrong.
My dad (whom I hate) was here, and my grandfather (ditto) happened to say, loudly, "SO TELL US ABOUT RICHY"... now obviously I've not told my dad about Richy because dad will be a pain in the ass, and I didn't tell GP (grand-pa), either, except since I live here and he lives here it's a bit obvious when I'm not here for a week... And he knows better then to tell dad things like that. So I got this little lecture from dad about "here's my phone number, call if he gets wild or anything"... I mean, honestly, I trust Richy a -lot- more then I trust either dad or GP, for one thing if I say "don't tell so and so this" Richy won't tell them...!!! But anyway, yes, anything dealing with dad or GP tends to agitate me.
Also I was cleaning my room today... big huge mess... but at least it cleaned up fairly quickly, it could have been worse, a
A 'happy' journalOK, to counter the gloom-n-doom in the last one, here's a couple of things that have gone right lately!
Oh, once again, this journal is full of things about "personal" matters, so if you have a sensitive conservative stomach, you might want to stop now. (Chicken! WUSS!)
http://www.thekeeper.com/ The Keeper is an amazing menstural sanitary product, that I've decided to encourage everyone (female) to look at. Obviously nothing is right for everyone, but this may be right for a lot more people then realize it. I've had mine for a full cycle now and I was simply amazed at how comfortable and secure it felt. I was also shocked at some of the things that go into pads and tampons, as more then one article says, "Tampons companies often brag that their tampons are bleached. It doesn't mean they're sterile, or more safe, or anything. It just means they're white." And then think about how your clothes smell and feel after you've had to bleach them heavily to remove a stain
Birth Control (sucks)NOTE: My journal is NOT rated "G" today, if you can't stand a bit of swearing don't read it.
Also don't read if you can't abide angsty teen rantings.
(For those who don't listen to angsty teen music, the song of the moment is the one that goes "well I guess this is growing up" repeatedly. Lyrics: http://www.thelyricarchive.com/lyrics/dammit.shtml )
Insurers Fall Short on Newer Contraceptive Options: Survey
By Amanda Gardner
FRIDAY, June 18 (HealthDayNews) -- Insurance plans fail to cover many newer reproductive health options such as contraceptive patches and rings, a new survey finds.
The survey, sponsored by the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals, the Black Women's Health Imperative, and Planned Parenthood Federation of America, canvassed 250 benefits managers at mid- to large-sized companies in the
***They need a "broke" mood icon, but I suppose I'll have to settle for Community Spirit instead... As everyone will notice I have a little * next to my name now.
Other then that.. blahblahblah, home again, back to forum slutting for a few weeks... More like a month and a half. Sigh. I have a huge ride on the 20th, which I'm completely unprepared for. (Yay...) Then Richy will hopefully have access to a phone sometime in early July, so I'll be talking to him for two-three days straight. (Long distance to England.) Then another tiny ride July 17th. (Why is the big one first, and then the little one? Why can't it be the logical way? Meh.) Then Richy gets home mid to late July, and I'll be back at the beach and glued to him again. Hence the song of the moment. And that's it.
Oh, except... I would post all these wonderful pictures of Tennessee (lots of cattle and corn and mountains), but this camera dislikes my computer. Perhaps tomorrow when mum brings the driver disk by? I can hear you all h
Beach, again!Something for me to remember: http://www.deviantart.com/view/7545170/
Well, I've been back for 2 weeks, actually. Just too lazy to update the journal. So I'm leaving again day after tomorrow... I'll be gone for a week or so again, lovely beach...
Then I'll be back for a day, gone again for another week! This time to Tennessee, to visit relatives. Oh well, not everywhere can be the beach.
After that, I'll be back, and very depressed with way too much time on my hands, so I'll be forum whoring as usual. (Since I don't care about page views/comments, perhaps it's actually forum slutting?)
Longest journal entry in a long time, I think I'll stop now.

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.
I was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.
Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality.
Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th

News and Updates (5/25/16)
EDIT 2: Curly tails are now added to the templates folder, most (excluding the normal dom curly tail and dominant longmane normal tails) were done by the awesome Issora - thank you!
In addition, the fangs are done and mane-specific physical traits are in progress.
Trait token explanations are added to the price sheet.
And if you see "can be turned in to TCArpg" just ignore that unless you want to wait. It is a side-ARPG in the works by Issora and sealle and may not be ready for awhile, so it is safe to redeem them.
EDIT: WF40 has been tamed by Ecanusiofiel! Congrats!
Hey guys. I've noticed there's been some confusion with the way Quests work so I have included a Quests Guidelines on the group's front page that answers some of the FAQs. If you have any others that are not answered there feel free to comment on the stash.

Dragon bust (3D)Hey everyone,

Well, my friend has rendered it out and here it is (no color) :
Looking good, no? The next step will be to have it printed and cast!
Do let us know what you think!

Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.

For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.
