Lessee... what has Kelsey been doin? Nothing worth posting, really. Not since the last time. Just everyday stuffs. Still looking for a job that doesn't make me hate all of humanity, still don't have a scanner... 
Oh. Bad news: the motherboard in my laptop went phtt for no apparent reason, and I have no USB ports. None. I can't sync my iPod, or use an actual mouse, or print any of my oodles of things on the damn thing. Also, it's running like a stoned sloth, both in performance and in speed, i.e., it's not doing a whole lot very fast. I'm typing this on the desktop, which is also running slowly, but it has USB ports and it runs at all. Ish. I hate the digital age, and it hates me.
Good  news: I got a new iPod. That's good news. It's a black 80G and it's very pretty, thank you Scott. Also, I'm still more or less full of inspiration, and am drawing and writing and it's not all total crap. Yay. Still have no scanner, but, hey, you can't have everything. Also, I got an art box (I think I mentioned) from my mother-in-law, and can now do things in color. Watercolor, to be exact. They're all pretty much bleh right now, so none shall be uploaded. But I'm having fun, and that's what counts. I finally got a library card, after almost six months of living here (had to find the library first). Next on the list is finding the used bookstore. Hmmm... Also good news is that I have my Nightwish tickets and my brother's coming, and, dammit, we're going to make it if we have to walk. ^^

So...yeah. I hate computers. They USED to like me, but now? I can't even get the damn thing to acknowlege that it's connected to the Internet half the time (it is I swear it is). Oh well. It's cyclical; it'll get better eventually. Toodles!

Well, bugger. It's November, isn't it? Tomorrow, I drive to Glenrock to leave my furrry nuisances with my in-laws, and then it's ROAD TRIP time! My friend Katie and I are goin to Albuquerque to see Nightwish (which I swear I mentioned before). I'd be more excited, but it's kinda 1 am. Or, as my body likes to tell me, 2 am. It always takes me awhile to get used to daylight savings time either way. The end result, as you can tell from me posting this at 1 am, is a hideous bout of insomnia. I'm going to have to take a nap tomorrow... 

Anyway.....well, the Rockies got flattened, which would have upset me more if they hadn't pitched like CRAP. 'Sides, the Red Sox are a pretty good team, so everyone was expecting this. Well, not for them to get swept, but for them to lose. Must have been the ridiculously long rest they got beforehand. 

I've been puttering around on Photoshop (I have Elements), and I'm up to...10 deviations and a scrap on DevArt. Most of it is Final Fantasy fanart, as I have no scanner...yet. Scott's in Alabama, doing officer training, and since he drove instead of flying, we get bonus moneys. First of all, bills. Second, maybe a desktop for me. I love this thing dearly, but it's getting full. Photoshop takes up a RIDICULOUS amount of space. On top of that, I'm a gamer, and games take up waaay more than anything else. Third, an HDTV for my whiny husband. ;) Then... maybe I can get a scanner. I need either that or Tablet, cuz I can't draw with a mouse for shit. I'm lazy, so I'd prefer Tablet, but a scanner would be nice for other reasons than my own drawings, so that's prolly what I'll get. We have a printer, but it's out of ink, and I need a cable for the laptop.

Speaking of my drawings...I have a print up on DeviantArt! ^^ Not like I'm pressuring anyone to buy it, I'm just happy I did something I'm wiling to sell to people. It's called "The Siren," and I only drew it... bugger...almost three years ago. But I colored it right before I put it up and I'm really happy about how it turned out. 

I meant to post for Halloween, but I had like 6 gazillion trick-or-treaters, and I were tired. I had a HUGE bowl of treats, and I still ran out before 8:30. Next year...keg. I'll go steal an oil drum, clean that puppy out, and use it for candies. And the kids were really polite, like I always was when I went...unless there was a creepy old guy involved. In that case, I took the candy and ran. Holly... I didn't get to go this year!! I was so sad... and I had a bitchin goth costume too. But the Air Force would prolly frown on a 23-year-old housewife without kids trick-or-treatin. Next year, I'll borrow someone's cute little kids. Or I'll drive to Casper specifically to go with you guys again. 

I think that's all for today. Except I'm a NERD, cuz I'm listening to the original SNES Zelda soundtrack...which is from, like, 1992 or something (A Link to the Past, and yes, it's from 1992). The nerd part is not only that I'm listening to video game's also that I haven't played the game for...fuck...ten, twelve years? And I still remember what all the music goes to... *stands up in NA* Hi. My name is Kelsey, and I'm a nerd..."
