F-list, I need advice. Have any of you ever used while shopping online? I'm tempted to use them because they have this Doctor Who boxset that's reasonably priced and I've been making grabby-hands at the page for days. But I've never ordered from them before and googling them hasn't shown me any reviews so I'm pretty hesitant to give what could very well be some fly-by night operation my credit card number.

So if anyone knows anything or if any of you know anyone who's shopped from Cheqowt, I'd love to hear about it. (Guys, it's 98.85 for 5 box sets. You know how much five box sets would cost me on Amazon? ELEVENTY BILLION DOLLARS, THAT'S HOW MUCH.)

I couldn't sleep at all last night so I ended up marathoning the second season of Skins from Michelle's episode onward and dios mio I love those kids. Adore them. I love them so much that I really don't want to watch the third season with all the new characters.

I know I have some Skins fans on my f-list so tell me: are the second gen kids any good? I don't care about Effy a whole lot and Pandora gets on my nerves (not quite as bad as Anwar does, to be honest) so I'm not sure if I'm completely sold on a season where the only familiar characters make me go meh. Considering Effy's the lead, I thought maybe Tony might pop up from time to time but from research it looks like he doesn't. *emo tear* So anyway: should I pass or at least give it a try?

I just finished ripping the mix my boyfriend made me for our sixth month, so I can put it on my mp3 player. (My CD drive doesn't work anymore. Hence the ripping at home. It's funny because most of the track list is Bruce Springsteen and Melissa Etheridge. They're his faves! Then there are two songs from Avril Lavigne (*quiet gag*) and two from The Cranberries (*cheers*). What do you guys think of that? Multiple songs from certain artists on a mix? I try to go for variety on my mixes. I know he was going for the message of a song, regardless of who the artist is (plus his musical library is.... limited, to put it kindly) so I'm not knocking him for putting songs from the same artist.

What do you guys think?

Okay, anyone remember my Rayne fic with a slight Raynekid focus, Girl Anachronism? Well, I have a sequel idea.

Okay, I'm fed up. I want to Office up my journal for the fall and for the life of me I can't find any decent Office headers. They're all either Jim/Pam or people making Office icons but Harry Potter headers. Grrr.

So if anyone can direct me to a decent Office graphics maker (that includes headers) I would really, really appreciate it.

So I got a strange email today. It was from and they said they'd reviewed my journal here and gave me an 8.1. Which is weird since I never submitted this journal for judging. Huh. Anyone wanna step forward and do some splainin'? Because I'm confused.

Well, I've been really annoyingly prolific lately when it comes to writing because when I start school in the fall, my classes will be really intensive and I'll hardly have time or energy for writing so I'm getting out everything I can. So I have a question and poll for you guys.

Cut for zee poll )

Question: Do any of you go to an American university that runs on a semester system? Because I have a question: Does the first semester end before everyone leaves for winter break or do you come back from break for a few more weeks of school? I need to know for fic reasons and the sooner I know, the sooner I can get writing. :) Thanks!

ETA: Thanks, guys! Questions answered. \0/

For the last week or so, I've been trying to rip some of my mix cd's so I can get acess to the songs I really really like and really really want. I managed to rip two of them and now Windows Media Player is rolling over on me. I gave Real Player a shot and had the same non-response response. My computer just isn't reading any of the burned cd's I put in. I don't know how I managed to break it and don't know how to fix it. Thoughts?

Okay, okay, okay. Okay. So here's my idea: Since apparently Nancy Drew/John Casey isn't funny but actually something intriguing, here's my idea based on a suggestion from [ profile] a_cipher.

In the spirit of the multiple writers who make up "Carolyn Keene," I'll write a Nancy/Casey short story and then someone has to pick up the story from me. And it'll be like a Round-Robin almost with all of us popping in to write the next part if we want to. Would this be good? Any takers?

Here's something interesting we did in one of my classes on Friday. We had to read a story, respond to it individually, and then get together into a group and try to reach a consensus decision. I surprised myself by how much I defended my stance because usually I'm a pushover, introverted mouse who won't stand up for my opinions but this time I argued and actually did change some of the people's minds. (And had mine changed too in the process, I should add.) It was a bit rad, really.

So I want to copy the story here and see what you guys think.

Okay, I'm finally going to ask... WHAT THE HELL IS TWILIGHT? It has invaded my friends-list and yet there's no explanation for what the gorram thing is. Is it a book series? Comic? Tv show? Movie? Up-coming tv show/movie? What?

I only want to know because everyone seems to be having fun with it and I want in on that action.
