New Gallery!

January 29, 2005

Hello! I’m not dead! hehehe.

I really don’t blog half as often as I should… :S

Big news – I finally have a coppermine gallery! woohoo! here it is -> Lauren’s Gallery ! Since none of my 3 domains have php for some reason… (?) Lougan of imreallybored.com has been kind enough to set it up and host it for me! Go check out his site! It’s a really fun website – join the forums, and I’ll see you there! 🙂

In other news – I had my first day at the animal shelter today – OMG – it is so much fun (the animals are all so great and cute) but SO sad… to see all these beautiful, loving, wonderful dogs and cats locked in little cages. They get so depressed… If anyone wants to adopt a dog or cat in the Windsor/Detroit area – I’ll set you up with a great little friend!

I’ve added a couple of new links to the link section (or will be quite shortly)and the marquee! Go check out Jenna, Meli(Who’s layout is HOT!), and Yakdust!

I wanted to thank everyone who commented on my last blog entry for all your kind words of support and advice. It was a really scary thing to have someone invade my privacy like that – but I’ve taken a lot of precautions to make sure it doesn’t happen again, and I encourage you all to do the same! Make sure you’re firewall is turned on, and never accept weird files! I love you all!

Mmm… I went out for Sushi with Jen yesterday afternoon and I was craving more for the rest of the day! Troy says I’ve got “the bug”! And I do – it’s really really good- especially salmon and tuna… (sorry – I meant Sake and Maguro, for all you Japanese people out there). Check out this site – it was making my mouth water yesterday – and it’s really fun, and interesting too! Digital Sushi!.

I can’t wait to go to Japan someday… their cuisine is so delicious – or, should I say “Oiishi”! hehe – I’m learning Japanese… a little bit.

Now – I need to go eat some pizza pockets before I waste away – I am SO FUCKING HUNGRY!!!

Hackers Suck.

January 26, 2005

Okay – I’ve got some disturbing, albeit interesting, news.

Yesterday someone hacked into my computer, and was WATCHING me via my webcam – thank god I didn’t get changed or anything during the timespan my computer was in his control. Here’s the whole story:

Okay, so yesterday morning I got a couple of files sent to me by different people – some of which I didn’t know – I’m suspecting that it was one of these files that allowed the hacker to get access to my computer. note:yes, I have learned my lesson and will not accept strange files from people I don’t know anymore./note It also may have came through Limewire… read the articles below for more info on that.

Anyways – Yesterday afternoon I noticed that my computer was behaving really strangely – applications were opening up on their own (like ICQ and yahoo messenger) and closing on their own – Like Paint shop pro. So, I figured I had a weird virus and I ran spybot – which stalled and ended up “unexpectedly quitting” before it finished. Another, REALLY weird thing I noticed in the afternoon, when I wasn’t on the computer, was that the mouse was moving on it’s own and clicking things. That freaked me out so much that I didn’t even want to go near the computer – I thought that the virus was doing it… or a ghost… (me = naive idiot) it never really occured to me that someone could take control of my computer without a password or SOMETHING. Anyways I decided to do a complete system restore, but I figured that I had better get to class because, as usual, I was running late.

Now, this is the freaky part – when I got home I opened the door, unpacked my schoolbag, all the usual stuff, when all of the sudden the screensaver popped off on it’s own – usually I have to touch the computer for that to happen. I thought that maybe a vibration had done it or something.

Then I noticed that the red webcam light was on.

so I went right up to it, and mouthed “I know you’re there!” – and all of the sudden the red light turned off.

This freaked me out SO much that I locked the doors to my suite, and my room. What if this person has my address?

I am calling the police and letting them know about this and if it ever happens again – I know how to catch their IP. So, if you’re reading this you sick fuck – I hope you really got off on terrifying a young girl. Fuck you – I feel like I’ve been raped almost… a complete invasion of my privacy.

I guess there’s a trojan that can enable people to do this. Check out these articles for more info:

Worm uses webcam to spy on users

Trojan writer uses webcam to spy

Man arrested over spy trojan

Creepy, huh?

I’ll blog more tommorow – I don’t even feel like including anything else in this entry.

Thanks to Jenni-Raie for helping me try to catch this guy 🙂

coppermine!

January 18, 2005

AHHH! HELP ME! I’m trying to install a coppermine gallery right now – it is SO confusing! I haven’t even installed coppermine yet – I’ve got it uploaded to my ftp server… I can’t figure out how the fuck to use apache! If anyone uses apache, or MySQL or coppermine – HELP! msn = crazy_is_cute@hotmail.com

*edit* I am usually really good with computers… but I don’t know why I can’t do this. I really want a coppermine gallery, but I don’t have time to do all this set up. I am offering 20$ US to the person who can set this up for me and show me how to use it. Yeah… I know it’s not a lot of money but fuck – I’m not that rich! hehehe – so… yes – if anyone’s good with this stuff and wants to make a little bit of extra cash in their spare time then please help me!*/edit

YO!

January 15, 2005

I really want to put up a new layout, but I just don’t have the time right now… I will in a couple of weeks I’m sure.

My new semester has started, and I’ve got one week down. It’s going to be a busy one – like, Really busy. I have SO much reading to do already… speaking of which – in ancient Rome, men liked to fuck little boys – a lot. Gross eh?

Thursday night we went to a strip club near campus – hahaha – it was so gross… but we had a good time, as we always do when we’re drinking. It was lesbian night and two strippers (nasty french ones) actually dyked it out on stage! I mean, the one chick put her tongue inside the other’s pussy – they were having sex on stage – they weren’t just stripping. It was crazy! I think I would have enjoyed it more if the strippers were hot, hahaha. Another stripper tried to get me to come up on stage with her! I gracefully declined, of course. That’s the last thing I want to do! The strippers were paying a lot of attention to me and Jackie though – probably because we were some of the only girls (aside from the dancers) there. They were really sweet though – most of them, anyways. I am thinking about taking pole dancing lessons from a girl at Wild Orchid! That would be so much fun!!!

Yes… anyhoo – Yesterday I went out for Sushi with Jenni-Raie! I’ve never had it before – and you know what? It was really good! Raw fish doesn’t taste like what you’d expect it too. It doesn’t taste fishy at all. I had Tuna and it tasted even milder than Tuna out of the can – it was just really soft. And it came with WASABI which is sooo good! HOT, but good! I also had some vegetable Tempura (SO good – it’s deep fried vegetables… mmmm) and this fish soup stuff, that I didn’t know what going to be soup – it was still good though – anything with noodles is fine by me. Anyhow – I highly reccomend trying sushi or sashimi – especially Tuna sushi.

Now – Just because I can, I’m going to post some pictures of my best little friends.

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! I miss them all SO much! Especially my baby Maggie! 😦

Ring

The ring…



Gorgeous, nes pas?

That is all.

Books are too expensive.

January 11, 2005

So, I have a livejournal now that I am reserving for times when I haven’t been taking my medicine right… if you want the link then just ask me. I don’t want everyone to have it… you know. Lovers and friends only! 😉

Troy is still sleeping – that sleepy head. Last night we watched some Seinfeld season 3 because Adam got the DVD set for Christmas – I didn’t realize that season 3 was so old! Haha – Jerry dressed SO bad back then… but there are some classics in that season – like the Limo, The parking space, etc.

I had class at 11:30 this morning – and I’m actually kind of excited about this class! I plan on attending EVERY single class and lab this semester in ALL Of my classes. I’ve realized that the difference, for me, between a B and an A is just showing up. If I had went to my Intro. to Comm. Labs and participated I would have had an A or A+ this semester — instead I got a B+ which sucks because I got 96% on the major term paper (I’m smart so STFU). The labs are worth 15% of our mark = and I decided that I want that 15% – more scholarships will come my way. I need to put the effort into going to class. Ugh – it’s so hard though, especially with early classes – I’d rather just be sleeping!

Speaking of classes – I have so many books to buy! I wish that they were cheap, but they aren’t. I was pleasantly surprised to see how much money I have in my savings account(ie; book/tuition account) though! Either my bank account had a little visit from the money fairy (aka My Parents) – or I just really didn’t spend much last semester. Either way – I’ll have enough left over after buying books to pay for my much needed vacation this spring. Then, it’s all work – all summer long. I’ve got to make dollars! 🙂 You know, to support my learning habit…

I’m going to buy some chanel earrings off of ebay. They’re knockoffs- I decided that I’m not going to drop $300 on real ones when I can get fakes for a lot less. There is so much more that I could buy with that money. I’m donating a little bit to the Red Cross for the Tsunami relief effort.

OH! Speaking of good deeds and stuff… I’m going to start volunteering at the OSPCA! I’ve been really down lately – feeling like I have no purpose. I don’t have any extra-curriculars or anything – I am on my computer WAY too much. I really love animals and I think that volunteering there would make me happy. However, it also might hurt. I love animals WAY too much you see, and to see an abused animal come in or get put down might be too much. I guess I’ll see what I can do! I’d like to volunteer in a communications related field also… I guess I’ll see what comes up!

I’ve also decided that I’m not posting any more skanky pictures. It’s making me feel bad about myself in a way that I didn’t even know was possible. Of course I’ll keep up with my cam – but you won’t be seeing my ass anymore… well – rarely, anyways.

Did you know that the people in livejournal communities are VERY exclusive and downright MEAN? I didn’t think it would be that way. A lot of them are really snotty towards new members and they think they’re very very special because of their livejournal expertise. It’s the fucking internet guys – get over yourselves.

In conclusion,

Books cost too much – I’m going to start attending classes this semester – livejournal communities suck.

I’m hungry.

Byebye!

bah bah bah.

January 8, 2005

First and Foremost – go visit Jenni-Raie’s new site! CRANBERRIED.NET!!!! I love it! 🙂

Secondly -Woo! I won 2nd place in the contest at camgurls.com – $50! Which is always nice! It will go into my ‘chanel earrings’ fund! 🙂 Thanks to everyone who voted for me! 🙂 I love you all!

I created a livejournal recently… and I’m debating whether or not I’ll use it. I might make it private so that only select people can read it. I think I’ll do that. There are just some things I shouldn’t talk about in this blog.

OH – and I’m going to finally decorate my “myspace” page. I’ll post the link when it’s finished! 🙂

I go back to school tommorow! Back to my computer and my cam and my FTP access… yay! 🙂 Where Troy and I can sleep in the same bed whenever we want to… I can’t wait! I know I’ll miss all the food here though… and my UBER comfortable bed. 😦 argh.

To all of the guys who have been contacting me through my yahoo group or emailing me lately (it seems, ever since I made the front page at camwhores): Thank you for your compliments, but I have a boyfriend and am not looking to fraternize with you. I don’t want to go on cam with you, or take pictures for you. I don’t like to be hit on, and I won’t be writing you back.

Oh man – I wish I could take my video camera around with me every where and just film the characters I’m exposed to. I would write fascinating stories based on the people I meet… if I weren’t too high to remember all the observations I make… bah. I love driving around and getting high. Fuck you if you think I’m any less cool for it. The best tonic is the CHRONIC! 🙂

Anyways – my hair is gross and I want to go shower. bye-bye!

Hungover

January 2, 2005

New Layout! woot woot! 🙂 hehehe. I’ve still got a few kinks to work out… but this is just a temporary layout so it really doesn’t matter anyways.

If you guys could vote for me at camgurls.com I would much appreciate it. It’s a lingerie contest! So come check out me, and the other contestants as well! 🙂

Um yeah – I’m REALLY hung over – still. A 2 day hangover from New Years eve. Ugh. It was a fun night – and I took lots of pictures- which I will post A.S.A.P. – UGH – I just hate this stupid shitty 1999 Imac so much! At one point it was a great computer… but now it just sucks ass. I can hardly do anything with it. I can’t wait to get back to my school so that I can work with my computer again…

Sorry for such a short blog – but I really do have to tweak this layout some more… and it’s Troy and I’s anniversarry today! 🙂 I’m getting a ring! (not an engagement ring- hehe don’t worry… we’re in love – but we are still only kids!) – I can’t wait to see it!!! I will be sure to post pics. Mmm… we’re going to the Cajun Pepper tonight – in my opinion, one of the best restaurants in Chatham. Their food is amazing… CHIMICHANGAS! 🙂 hehehe.

OH! and one more thing – I’m a REAL camwhore now! I finally made the front page! Thanks so much to everyone who helped me get there, especially Ken – I don’t know if I could have made it this month without your help! 🙂 Thanks again!

Ciao all… and Happy New Year!!!

-Lauren
