Your Lightsaber is Blue

Blue is often associated with depth and stability.
It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom,
confidence, and truth.

What Colored Lightsaber Would You Have?

wow... Saskatoon was awesome!! The wedding was great, Lory even greater.. :) I'm too tired to continue now.


I've convinced myself that I need a new username.... think of it as spring cleaning in the winter.... I'm rather liking "teh_rubes"... anyone have anyother suggestions??

wee... updating time!

Life = teh psycho

yeah, that pretty much sums up my life... and my lack of updates :)

Erik has arrived from the frozen north of BC, and seems to fit right into our family. He has an awesome warped sense of humour.. it's alot of fun. (for those of you who don't know, we might be billeting a 10 year old boy named Erik, he's staying for a week to see if he likes it here, and will then decide whether he's staying or not :)

We're doing another drama for church now, it's pretty awesome. I get to be a flag waver, it's to the song "Jesus, be the Center". Very fun and exciting to see new stuff happening in the church!

Wow.. new contraption on my braces... so much fun.. I'll see if I can draw a pic...

Ah... I downloaded GIMP on Isaac's (my brother) computer (with his permission of course) and It's so nice to be reaquainted! :) Just need to dld my brushes now! :)

Anyways, on to the lovely drawing I did myself on the computer! :)

Read more...Collapse )

Anyways, I'd better get off here. I really need to transfer some files from computer to computer, because I'm going crazy from lack of resources on GIMP!

of DVD's and halloween

wow.. dad came home yesterday with a DVD player... how wacked is that?? lol Apparently it was only 30$... must be a new something or other coming out to be that cheap! We watched Hidalgo last night... Viggo didn't really wow me with his hottness or acting abilities... although he never does.. :) The fight scenes were extremly tacky too... I'd probably give it a 2.5 out of 5... wasn't that good. My parents also watched Laws of Attraction today.. but I wasn't really interested... Pierce Brosnan scares me a bit, and Gimp/new lj layouts was calling me. :)

Pretty New Layout at amiableicons.. took a good chunk of time to make and blend! Features Keira, Natalie and Kida.. the best of the best :)

Went to church this morning... it was Pastor Appreciation Sunday which was kinda neat to see cause Hugo and Connie are amazing with everything they do... they deserve to be recognized! They had 3 Huge cakes, I had 2 pieces, being the pig I am.

Also got a rocking new icon from duncatra. It's been a long time since I've used someone elses icon.. man... But PB and SW together.. ? It can't be resisted!

I can't really think of anything else to say... I'm gonna go read some more Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It's an AMAZING book/movie series.. I'd advise you to read/watch it. When I'm done, be sure to see some icons of it... I love Elizabeth character.. she's awesome!

Happy Halloween!

today is.... a day

Wow... I'm having a bit of a wacko day today! I haven't updated in so long.. sorry, but school's been crazy busy! Anyways, I'm sure you'll forgive me as I've got a couple pictures!! :)

Hmm.. where should I start?? Well for starters, we're having a 10 year old boy named Eric come and stay at our house until Christmas.. maybe longer, which is pretty cool.. I've never had a younger sibling before.. should be interesting! He lives very far north in BC and doesn't have a proper school to go to, so he's coming to get a good year of school in! I'm rather excited, although I have never met him before and it may be interesting to be on the other side of the younger sibling-pranks playing thing.. :)

ouch... I went to go and put The Bunners out (my rabbit for all you uneducated ones) and fell down the stairs because they were all icy... smashed my back up good... I'm going to have an awful bruise.. I can tell.. it already hurts like crazy!

Got Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin from the library.. and absoulutely everyone told me to watch the movie... but I had no idea where to get them. I talked to Mrs. Nicholson, the school librarian (who honestly feels like one of my grandparents.. lol) about the movies to see if I could find them... turns out the school owns them! I highly recommend them and the book.. fabulous so far and I can't wait to read more of it! :)

Very Hyped about Sasaktoon! Can't wait to see you all there!! Oo.. just for my own references... sign off (comment) if you're going!! :)

I dyed my hair black the week (photo under cut) supposedly for halloween, then decided I didn't want to be a Geisha but I still love my hair to pieces! Honestly.. I was meant to have black hair! Friday at school I wore a knitted lion hat with a viking hat on top.. the mane made it look like I had a red beard... so I was Eric the Red.. :) Our school mascot is the Vikings. lol Ended up winning best grade 10 costume for the girls too.. all because my beloved Band Geek buddies voted for me :) Band Geeks rule the World. anyways... back to the photos...

Black Haired Ruby and some Hot ShoesCollapse )

last thing.. new layout made from largely editing and varying one of ['s ] downloadable ones... It's awesome, you should check it out! It features the beautiful Natalie Portman!

:) Love Y'all Lots, comment of going to saskatoon,

    Computer Hum....

Just a regular old update...

woo! I'm so excited to go on the band trip next weekend! I'm told it's in 100 Mile House, which is, believe it or not, the real name of a town... dorky I know, although "The Pas" is no rave either :) Anyways, we drive down there, do sectionals for a bit, do a huge concert (for which I have the cutest new shoes and skirt, which I will be taking a picture of in the near future, when we get batteries for the camera ), then drive back home, and Sasha and Nikki are going, so that rocks!

I got a bunch of photo copies of a really awesome book of Sasha's that has all the typical pointers for drawing manga/anime faeries in it, and I absolutely love it! I've been experimenting tonight, so expect some cool scans in the near future! I also drew a pretty cool pic of Sasha, Nikki and I in anime-likeness, wearing school unforms, of course.. because what would anime be without them?? :)

Man, I've had so much homework lately, I've had no time for computer, which is very sad! I really miss fooling around with GIMP in my spare time, but now that spare time is non existant, that's a bit difficult!

Did some more pottery after school today, finished off my mug, and made some really neat, artsy-like coasters that I'm very proud of! I really love pottery, it's so relaxing and it unwinds you!

I'm SO excited about Saskatoon, holy moley, I get to see everyone! Isaac's coming from Ottawa, Cynthia and Lory and maybe Brenda, Matt and Jared from The Pas.. it's gonna so much fun!! We're getting a girls room for us psycho ones, so we can stay up all night!

Well, I'm running out of things to say, but I've decided today to let you all in on a little secret... wanna find out??

my little secretCollapse )

omigosh, I'm so jittery now! I just applied to takenote_icons and I really don't know if they'll accept me! Here's what I applied with...

I hope I get in!!Collapse )
Yuck, I seriously should learn how to calm down when doing this kindof stuff, honestly, when I go for my first job interview, I'll be a wreck! :)

Anyways, do tell what you think of them, and for those few who are wondering about #3 and #4, they're part of a full set of all the characters of LOST :) which will be out soon hopefully :)


PS: New LOST layout up too... I'm so in love with Claire.. she's the best :)
