Wow... lots to update, but I'm lazy. :p

A) I had a BLAST in california with [livejournal.com profile] cynlee, [livejournal.com profile] hamatokameko, [livejournal.com profile] brinatello and Christine. However, I have pics for that, so hopefully I will post those later :D

B) Jenn's dad is prolly going to get heart surgery, so Jenn is leaving tomorrow (May 5th) and will be in Utah for THREE WEEKS! D: I am going to miss her SO much!! :(

C) Osama Bin Ladin is DEAD! O_O This quote from Mark Twain sums up my feelings on that quite eloquently "I have never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure." (quote stolen from [livejournal.com profile] neuronautica) hee hee. I hope this clears up all the annoying "birther" nonsense about our president. I SO want Obama to tell the public "Oh, sorry I couldn't get a copy of my birth certificate to you quicker, I was kinda busy tracking down and killing Osama Bin Laden. But next time I'm working on a important matter of national security which my predecessor ignored and you want to quibble with me over schematic details, I'll get right on that." I know he won't, but it would still be EPIC. ;D

D) Jenn & I picked up her xbox while we were in Utah. XD Feel free to add me if you feel so inclined! My Gamertag is "MicaTurtle" :D (Jenn's is "Soliloquy79") Does anyone on my Flist have an xbox? Nyar?
I've been having fun playing some games on the xbox. However, I'm wondering a few things:
1) Is there any cheaper way to buy/earn/get "Microsoft Points"? If you buy thru your xbox, it ends up being like $21.19 for 1600 points (which is roughly 1.4 cents per point, and since a rockband song "costs" 160 points, it's kinda a ripoff :p If I buy the prepaid cards is it a better deal?
2) Does anyone here have an xbox gold membership? Is it worth the price?
3) Does anyone know of any good free downloadable games on the xbox marketplace? Also, is there some secret way to sort by price?

Just so I don't lose my number crunching that I've done today:

stuff and number crunching about NYCC trip )
micaturtle: (Nyar?)
Well, for those of you who don't know, I got a Wacom tablet (this one in fact) around a week ago. I have played with it a little bit, and I am HIGHLY disappointed. The thing that really bothers me the most is this: in order to move the mouse around the screen, you need to hover the pen above the tablet surface! As you may or may not know, I have tremors in my hands, and holding the pen like that annoys the nyar outta me! I have searched a little bit, but I have not found a way to change this. *sigh* The other minor thing is, my eye-hand coordination is just not what it used to be. :p

In doing a little more research, I have found that the item I *REALLY* want is this:
A Touchscreen laptop *drools* I played with one of these a few years ago at an anime convention, and that's truly what I thought the wacom tablet would feel like/work like. The problem is, it's $979, and although it WILL go down in price, I will have to wait for a while (like prolly a whole year) until I can pay for it.

The question is, what should I do? Should I return the wacom tablet and save up for the touchscreen laptop? Or should I just keep the tablet and hope I will like it? I just worry if I keep the tablet, it will become a $70 dust catcher, because I will prefer drawing the old fashioned way because of the issues I have with it... hmmm

What do ya'll think I should do??

The first seven (7) people to respond to this post will get something made by me. You can tell me something you might like if you want to, but I may not give you that, sorry. I'm random!

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you. (altho I may share it in my LJ if its a ficlet or icon)
- It'll be done by the end of this year (2009).
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix CD, it may be a ficlet or an icon. It may be a poem. I may draw or make something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! [not me either]
- I reserve the right to do something completely weird (but I promise not to send you jello in the mail ;)

The catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you!

I may LJ-message you and ask fer your snail-mail addy if I want to send it to you.
