[personal profile] olesia
Okay I pretty much never post here anymore because my life is never really interesting enough to warrant it, so instead this is just going to be more Internet Tutorials (mostly for people who role-play on Livejournal). Next time I'm going to try the megalith that is the Livejournal Addon, but today I'm going to introduce you to Cookie Swap.

This add-on, in its base design, is meant to allow multiple people to use the same computer without people having to constantly log one another in and out in order to access things like email or Amazon or what have you. For us, who are probably people who own our own computers and don't have to deal with concepts like sharing, this can also be a useful tool for any website where you might create multiple accounts -- livejournal, facebook, gmail, gaia, etc. The downside is the same as its main perk; the switch isn't localized to any one domain, so if you swap from "Profile 1" to "Profile 3," it changes all of your cookies simultaneously, which can be a little annoying if you, say, only have one email account and twenty profiles, and don't want to have to login anew every time you switch.

This is where I am coming in to help you!

You can pick it up here. Under the cut I'm going to show you the easy way to "clone" your initial file, so that when you go off to make your twenty profiles for your various RP journals, it won't log you out of gmail every goddamn time.

look I am so nice, I will even include pictures.Collapse )

And that's it! You are now ready to conquer your accounts.
If you run into any trouble, or something doesn't make sense to you (I'm writing this at two in the morning, I have no idea how much sense I'm making), go ahead and drop a comment and I will do my best to help you out!

For those of you still running versions of Firefox under 4.0Collapse )

Also today is my birthday :3 so if you'd like to show your appreciation you can flood my profile with spiders or something. You may also add whatever the fuck tags you would like to this entry.

My clothing has taken to encouraging speeches, and everything in my kitchen is infected with mangoes.

The life of an olesia.

So my mother has, in the recent year, been very taken with mango in her salsa. I don't eat salsa, so this is of no concern to me. Sometimes she buys us lunch from Qdoba, and during the summer they have a mango-something chicken salad—which is not bad, truth be told! But mango and I are not really the closest of friends, so in that situation I could really take it or leave it.

But now it has started getting into my other foods, in ways that make no sense. I had some cheese yesterday that proclaimed to have apricots in it. They were mangoes.

I had a goddamn sausage with secret mango in it. Why. Why would anyone ever do such a thing. It still had beef or whatever and yet, there, small clumps of mango, as big and as unwelcome as stray fingernail clippings.

For the other half of this, a hat I got at the convention had a slip of paper in the pocket (why this hat has a pocket is also a mystery) that wants me to know that "good people are guided by their honesty." (This same hat got me free coffee while at said convention, while I was being... honest? So maybe there's something to it.) The shirt I'm currently wearing, on the reverse side of the care/wash instructions, includes a bible verse about the strength of love and reiterates twice that Love NEVER gives up!

So my wardrobe might be conspiring to help me change my life for the better, as far as it can tell. When do I get my Disney musical number?

v's are where periods should be, and w's replace commas.
i will inevitably do an Eridan impression when i mean to ellipse.

Things that happen when olesia can't sleep:

all the contacts in her phone are now comic book characters or otherwise fictional. also in capslock. RP friends are their characters. Non-RP friends/family are completely random.

My dad is now Thor. Or, rather, THOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRR. I think my grandmother is going to wind up being Ganon.

Good morning flist-chan. How are you?

EDIT and then I started playing with scissors andCollapse )

The one-hour finale was tonight and it was beautiful from start to finish

if i think too long about how much i loved it -- and how much this series on the whole has meant to me -- i'm going to start crying and I don't know when i'll be able to stop


i'm going to go refresh the japanese sites and grab screencaps and maybe come back and talk about this later
If I had an icon of J. Jameson right now, I'd use it, because that is the kind of post this is.


... preferably pictures where said asses are displayed. Any sex/gender is fine, so long as the asses are fine.

Yes this is probably the weirdest post I will ever make.
No, I'm not explaining what this is for.

edit: yes there are now pictures of naked people in the comments so I guess this entry is not safe for looking at if you're at your grandmother's house.
Unless your grandmother is as cool as mine. Then you're fine.

So I'm chilling in my room, not doing much of anything.

Mom knocks on the door. Opens it. Walks in with a very serious expression on her face, and holds up an envelope.

"Is there something you need to tell me?"

I look at her face. Very serious; I am clearly in trouble of some kind. I look at the envelope, expecting any number of terrible things.

I read the envelope.

I look back at her

back at the envelope


both of us start cracking up laughing


what the hell mailing list am I on??

✤ Sent a text to my dad, asked whether he wanted me to come over this weekend or not. Responded to my yes-or-no question with a "call you later." Did not call. TAKING THAT AS A NO.
✤ Apparently my brother gave me his PS2 ... ... and the cords for his Sega Dreamcast. ... °_o
✤ I am addicted to 【instant hot cocoa + instant coffee】. Our water heater is cranked up so high I don't even need to boil it or microwave it.
✤ Watched Toward the Terra the movie. It is so bad. But, as it turns out, I can totally Livestream things. Maybe this weekend I will play something for you guys. (Japanese Spiderman?)
✤ The Internet is a Madhouse, and I am wearing an elephant on my head.
✤ RP: *stares at tags. stares at FAQ. stares at calendar. cries inside. drinks more cocoaffee.*

Any plans for the weekend, flist? For me, if I get everything done (or if I'm shipped off for the weekend), I'm either going to replay 999, or actually go through and beat FFVI for the GBA (so many acronyms and abbreviations...) and do all the extra stuff for real this time!!

→ Take a screenshot of your desktop.
→ Take a screenshot your media player (if you have one up).
→ Take a screenshot of another program you have up.
→ Pick a tab you have up and take a screenshot of it.

so many thingsCollapse )

And as for state of the RP, this is pretty simple: but under a cut anywayCollapse )

As it turns out, I am not allowed to donate blood. Not because I have any medical conditions or illnesses or anything of the like -- nope! I just have ridiculously tiny veins, and basically the people who do the blood work looked at both of my arms and essentially threw their hands in the air, refusing to try to find my veins.

Hahahaha whoops? Now nobody gets my delicious blood.

Hm hm hm let's see. Life continues on as usual! I've avoided further Crazy People Flirting adventures, which is always a plus; adventures in house-sitting next week, another bonus. Need to sell some old games and stuff. Do de dum.
✤ I've been killing a lot of time in Corel Painter lately, coloring in other people's line-art for fun. I am secretly eight years old! But I'm getting a lot better, so I'm pleased. (example)
✤ RP: Finished an app for Route_29, submitting that later this week. Posted an open log for Ruka at C&C, posting main comm for her tomorrow. Need to work on getting Clover out there more. And Terra is still dead so that makes things easy on her front. Tag more on Splendorocity.
✤ Entertainment: Steal my brother's the Lord of the Rings dvd trilogy, because I have been wanting to rewatch this for aaages and I can't get my hands on it at all. Going to replay 【999】 yet again... shut up. Oh and watched the entirety of Baccano! a few days ago. Pretty good! I liked it better than Durarara!, at any rate.

Thaaaaaaaat is pretty much it! And this is why olesia never updates.

The How's My Driving? Meme

In which all my characters usually only go by their given name, all their canons contain a number, and twenty other similarities that don't matter.

But in other news: found my social security card (after ten months of having misplaced it, yay; now hopefully I can sell some stupid blood to pay for hunting for stupid jobs), I have more floor than I know what to do with, new sheets to roll all over and hopefully not get paint on, too many textbooks I really need to sell, and the realization that I am clearly not ~emotionally invested~ enough in the current arc of 5D's, because this Recent Betrayal of Friendship is totally supposed to be a big deal and I just do not give a shit. (Then again, I've had a hard time honestly liking the other character involved as portrayed in canon, so there's that, too! Sorry guys, popular male characters with varying shades and hues of blue hair just do not do anything for me.) /things nobody cares about.

I am also exceptionally bad at keeping this thing updated, but as I have had very few adventures in 'should I eat this crazy thing' lately, I guess this is to be expected! Hopefully I will have better things to post about by the end of the month.

Sure, why not? REWORDED SLIGHTLY...

Pick a character I play, and I will give/explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc that I believe are essential to an accurate depiction and must be kept in mind while writing. OH WELL I GUESS EVERYONE'S BEEN DONE NOW so just read the comments...

Happy New Year!

I'm going to ramble for a little while about 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors. If you've talked to me over AIM or on Plurk, you probably know I've been going gaga over this game.

So today I'm actually going to talk about it!

Our heroes and their frequently ridiculous fashions.

The rest is under a cut, of course, and as spoiler-free as I can make it.Collapse )

So hey, belated Merry Christmas / Happy Extraordinarily Slow Saturday, everyone. My family's had a good time over the past couple days—went to my dad's Friday where gifts were given, a bar was visited, and olesia decided hanging out in the ear-assaulting bar was not her scene and instead spent that time downloading Hot Chicks for the Sims 2 onto her dad's computer (at his request, oi). And Friday was also the day that my brother and I did all our gift shopping in visiting all of three stores (one store for both the parents, one store where my brother picked out what he wanted me to get him (a dartboard) and one other store where I picked out what I wanted him to get me (999)). The only place that was busy was Gamestop. Everywhere else was like... general friday shopping traffic, it was great.

Saturday! Annual honor of "[So-and-so] has ruined [holiday]" goes to our local coffee shops, all of which were closed why. Gifts were exchanged, grandmothers called, A Christmas Story avoided. I have instead been playing 999 all day and it is great. I will probably talk about it in more detail when I get more endings than 'got ax'd because I suck at grief consoling.'

TOMORROW (SUNDAY) WE ARE GOING TO PORTLAND, OREGON FOR REASONS RELATED TO MY BROTHER so some of you will probably get whiny text messages from me cramped in the back seat with a dartboard and a bag of knives and ham.

End of entry bullet notes mostly dealing with entertainment and nothing of substance BECAUSE I CAN:

*The Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt ending wasn't nearly as 'what the fuck is this' as I was led to believe, and despite the ham-fisted fetch quest tacked to the end, I don't think it needs continuation or follow-up. Top notch trollin though.

*Saw Black Swan. It was good! The writing was weak in places, primarily in the dialog, in that it struggled in making the characters seem like actual humans as opposed to Bearers of Symbolism and Forced Establishment of Character Traits (this is mostly in Nina's Mom and also the one reoccurring dude whose name I never bothered to learn), but other than that I really liked it.

*999 (9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors) is really fun!! I've only put it down to do things like clean and eat today, and I have no idea how many hours I've dropped into this game yet, but it's really enjoyable to me. IT IS, HOWEVER, very very text-heavy so if visual novel games aren't your style, neither will be this. I think the Prince ("Snake") is my favorite.

*Shut up I am excited for 5D's this week.

New phone arrived today! It has no service until tomorrow, but I've been dicking around with the settings and stuff to pass the time

this phone has a button specifically for inserting emoticons/smileys into text messages (as this is a texting phone)

... all the faces have Osborn Hair.

09 December 2010 @ 08:29 pm
okay maybe I will actually update today. HELLO LIVEJOURNAL. This is one of those "I just did a friending meme, excuse me while I introduce myself to new people" posts. So it's another installment of page down theater if that has nothing to do with you.

Anyway hi, I'm olesia. My update schedule is pretty sporadic, as I don't talk too often about my real life goings-on (unless they involve creeps on buses, getting free stuff, or those people I'm related to doing crazy stuff.) And I don't talk too often about fandom or RP, really, aside from occasional dissertations on stuff regarding Card Games on Motorcycles, or to-do lists for RP. And so forth. And just in case that isn't enough 'there's an account but no one's home' internet presence, you can also find me on twitter, last.fm, and has-existed-for-like-sixteen-hours plurk (you will notice a theme here).

That is ... pretty much it so wow this was short and uninteresting. Whatever.

Also for the record: anyone can tag my entries and create tags in my journal, so feel free to troll to your heart's content.

IN OTHER NEWS: I'm supposedly getting my new phone tomorrow and you guys have no idea just how excited I am for this. For a better picture, let me describe my current phone: somewhere close to four years old, which isn't all that bad, except for the fact that the screen pixelates and garbles every time I open the phone, making it nigh unto impossible to do ... well, anything, without smacking it against my palm or holding it at this or that specific angle. Likewise, the ear-piece speaker garbles or does not work at all unless the phone is pinched to a certain angle that makes it... close to impossible to hold to a face for speaking. It's a very broken phone. So! New one, ~exciting.~

And now we see why I don't update often, hah.

Okay so I showed some of these to Elle and she demanded I had to post the list so we could share with other people who know Toward the Terra. Anyway. These are two years old and I have no idea who made them, but I was crying with laughter during some of them, so...

Basically, it's Toward the Terra as reenacted on livejournal. It only gets about as far as the clash between the Mu and station E-1077, but worth the read if you know the series. Includes Asshole Shiroe, Keith's adventures in sewing, D&D, Soldier Blue as a veritable fount of wisdom, and Jomy complaining that he is not a cow.

a million links.Collapse )
