Back... again...?

So I'm sorry for not updating in a while. Maybe it was the fact that my three years of torture- excuse me, middle school finally ended and I was half celebrating, half freaking out about high school. Maybe it's the fact that my blind cat passed away. Maybe it's the fact I was on a five-week vacation with my cousins, came back for a week, and am currently on a two-week vacation. Or maybe it's the fact that I'm jsut a lazy teenager.

But you know whatever.

Let's see if I can explain everything in further detail...

Eighth grade ended almost two months ago, and it was one of the most heartbreaking days of my life. There are twelve high schools in my city, so many friend clusters were being split up. None of my friends are heading to the school I'm going to. I had to watch the most (arguably) popular couple in the school have to say goodbye for the last time, and that was almost enough to make my start bawling like a baby.

And then, I went to a horse camp for kids with... um... "disabilities..." I was worried I'd be lumped in with a bunch of severely affected kids who needed help just functioning, but turns out most of the kids had very mild problems, like ADHD.

Came home from horse camp one day, and found that my mom had decided to put our fifteen-year-old cat down. He'd been declining for a few days, and when she couldn't use his legs at all, she decided enough was enough and took him to the vet. He'd been fighting with hypertension and blindness for a while and at least he didn't have to suffer anymore...

Then we were headed off to Florida with my cousins in tow for a two week long trip to Walt Disney World and Tampa. I've been to Disney World more than enough times (21 times, I kid you not) but seeing them see the parks for the first time together was very fun. One of them was only five years old and was infatuated with princesses and the whatnot, so seeing her face light up when she saw Sleeping Beauty for the first time was priceless.

We were going to head back to our home, but my grandma said one of us could come to her house for two weeks. My thought process went something like two weeks - mother = sign me up. There was a flood in St. Louis, however, and my grandpa, who works on a farm, had to work even more to make sure none of the machinery and plants had been ruined in the water. So the trip was extended to three weeks. Not like I had a problem with that or anything...

And now we're in Dahlonega or however you spell the name of the town in Northern Georgia, heading up to North Carolina for two weeks to see some of my dad's old friends, then my uncle, and finally my old friend who moved away nearly two years ago. Happeh times.

Also, one of my mom's high school friends just won a 22K lottery. Hurrah and all that.

Idiots idiots everywhere

Not from the same member, this time the idioticy is from a too-dumb-to-live, apparent 20-year-old named "Jiggles." This is the most recent of just one more of her epic fails:

Jiggles: https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=a9a04c4ae0&view=att&th=12fd71d986cf3620&attid=0.1&disp=inline&zw

https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=a9a04c4ae0&view=att&th=12fd71dbf5bb2cdd&attid=0.1&disp=inline&zw

Don't bother clicking the links, they're useless...

Me: You realize that those are from your mail account and we can't view it, right?
Mod1: What were you trying to do?
Jiggles: I sent them to my sister's cell phone from my camera phone.
Me: One, that doesn't answer anything, and two, regardless of what you did, we can't see them. You log out of your mail account, then see if you can view them.
Jiggles: I just logged off of igoogle.com and they still show. And please try to stay on topic.

Remember how I'm a moderator on this forum? So she comes along and begins mini-modding me, and I'm not a fan of whatever inferiors I have thinking they're better than me.

Me: Real quick, who is the moderator here? Not you. Please don't mini-mod. And how do you expect us to stay on topic if we don't know what the topic is supposed to be? Your latest entry has us completely confused.
Mod2: I busted out laughing so hard, guys. No really I'm not sure where to even start here. Jiggles, those links don't work for anyone. Anyone. Except you. And then you provided us with absolutely no explanation. Get this through your head. And don't try to reprimand a moderator who is doing her job and doing it well.
Mod1: If you could kindly tell us what is in those links you posted, we will let it go. You're being really vague, and that's something I don't like.
Admin: ...What? xD
That's not how linking pictures works, if that's what you were trying to link. Also, don't mini-mod a moderator. What is this thread for again? *checks* Ah, for what kind of penguin the PoM penguins are. Well, since it's already been answered (they aren't a real breed) this thread really has no point in staying open. Feel free to lock this up when you guys figure out what the heck is going on.
Mod2: I don't want this locked until we get answers...
Mod1: And no one's gonna lock it until Jiggles replies.
Me: Five bucks says she'll never come back to this thread.

Needless to say, she didn't.

5.07.2011

Well. Um. Okay.

Thanks to the lovely Mares, I was alerted of the following:
Someone didn't do their research...

But seriously guys, am I really that popular? I've only gotten about 3.5K posts, way less than some of my friends (or otherwise known members, hello Couriervaughn) online, and my blog only has a few followers. I haven't posted on the forum for nearly five months now, and yet I've got a troll willing to pretend to be me.

Wow, I feel special. In an odd, terrified, strangely intriguing way.

I should go tell the buck-toothed donkey and her sheeples about this. THEN VENGEANCE WILL BE HAD! ... you know what nevermind I'm good.

Oh, and Dolphinz2123... Just so you know, I'm brunette, my hair's wavy, and it is not down to my lower back held in place by a headband.
Thank you.

ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING.

my sims are installing

I've never been so proud (*w*)

TiK ToK ON DA CLoK

T-minus <+/- 2h until Sims~

you know if my evil plan goes planningly according to plan.

4.30.2011

um okay then.

I took a look at some of my blog stats, and they're... um... interesting?

What you see are the keywords that people have used to get to my blog. Some of them are kinda obvious, but it gets weirder as the list goes down. "Language you speak..." That's in the little introductory tagline thingamabob ("Whatever language you speak, I'm trying to say hi") but it seems like an awfully weird thing to be directed to- four times. And then there's jarsie9 and ruthless_kk, both of whom I have blogged about but only in one post. We've got 100percentdolphinzz (I admit to making that mistake last night, stupid typos >_<). Closing the thing off is... a bunch of question marks in squares? Huh?

And there are the countries people come from. Most of them are pretty common (US, UK, AU, Canada, etc.) but some are kind of weird. 83 hits from South Korea? 24 people from Luxembourg? Where the heck is Luxembourg?!

TEH FAIL IS OVAR 9000

On one of my other forums last night (you know ones that aren't completely cruddy) this conversation, around 5, this post appeared:

Her: OMG he's being sexy xD Movie Rico is a little hawt xD

Now, this particular person has a track record in fangirling over these particular cartoon penguis and doing some particular things to them, and trust me, you don't want to know. We mods (did I mention I'm a mod on that forum? Well, I am. I feel so proud :D) got on her case, saying "we told u no do dis." And then, in the "What Makes You Mad" forum, she posts this, a thinly-veiled show of her annoyance:

Her: Ugh, I hate it when people get on my back or tell me what to do or what not to do. Or people who don't tell me straight away.

So we kindly but firmly tell her how she's gone wrong (yet again):

Me: We don't want to have to tell you what not to do, but some things you do cross the line. Like, a lot. We have to have some rules in order here, otherwise the place would be crawling with trolls and really icky discussions. And we do try to tell you things as clearly as possible, sometimes we tell you these things many, many times.
Mod1: You'll be told what to do and what not to do all through your life, that's how it goes and how work gets done. Us mods tell everyone what they're allowed to do here, it's to keep this place orderly and neat and clean.

And let's watch the whole unfold:

Her: No sh*t. I just hate it when everyone sorta gets on my back like I've commited a crime.
Mod1: *cough*Breakingtherulesisacrimetechnically*Cough. Sorry, something stuck in my throat.
Her: Blah blah blah. Sure, I'm supoosed to follow rules here, I just never really read them.
Admin: *facepalm* Then read the rules. That post of yours right there just tells me I might as well go ahead and give you a temp-ban. :/
Her: Can we end this? Because I'm really mad now. I'm sure everyone hates me here because I'm such a jerk. D:
Me: Nobody hates you, you just have to follow the rules. You know, this forum is incredibly lenient, on any other forum you'd probably be perma-banned if you keep up your behavior.
Mod3: Oh my god. Okay, ban her. Temp ban her. Do anything. That is a massive amount of stupid right there. You are not exempt from the rules and you dang well better learn that. Insinuating that you're exempt from the rules pretty much DOES make you a jerk, and I'm not even going to argue it. I don't think anyone here HATES you but you DARN WELL are not earning any fans from the way you act. I'm tired of trying to reason with a brat.
Her: And you always get on my back about everything.
*runs away crying because of what [username] has done on the forum*
Me: Alex, can I have "completely missing the point" for 200, please?
Mod1: Alright "Missing the point" For 200. "A whiny, penguin-loving, hormonal girl"
Me: What is "Lady Gaga?"
Mod1: Ooh, that is incorrect. Minus over 9000 points.
Admin: Gave her a temp ban of three days. She needs to learn how to stop overreacting, and learn how to follow/read the rules and learn how to apologize. :/

And that's not even the end of it. A few hours later, this post appears in the rule thread:

New member: Just read the rules. I am going to try and be more careful here now. Please let [username] get unbanned. PLEASE.
Mod3: ITBEGINS.jpg
Mod1: If she read the rules, she would have known that creating multiple accounts is against them.

So yeah. That's the most drama we've had all month, though. She only got a 72-hour temp ban, though.

A WILD DOLPHINZ APPEARS

WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN

...In other news, I may be buying TS2 this weekend. Yes, it won't be the same, you know, at all, but hey, at least I'll be able to call myself a simmer again. Right? And I won't have to wait for any new expansion packs, I'm happy with having Pets ans Seasons right there at my disposal. Anyone here on TS2 forums? Maybe that stuff won't be as cruddy.

Let's just hope.

TEH EBILS

A few examples of why people, as a whole, suck lollipops.

1) I had a brush, some people took it and stuck it in the toilet.
2) Some people *glares at buck-toothed donkey girl* like holding my every slip-up against me.
3) I buy a bracelet, it falls off my wrist, and when I find it three minutes later, somebody has cut it up.
4) I buy two rubber ducks with cool amazing seizure-inducing lights in them, and my sister takes then to school and brings them back deflated and the lights broken.
5) I say something, and then not five feet away from them can hear the girls laughing about how I said that. Loser girl has ears, yanno.
6) While talking to someone, you hear them say under their breath, "Please shut up now..."

Okay, so hate is when you apparently want to inflict pain on people, you wish them badly. Oh, I don't wish them badly. No, all I wish for is for them to get on a huge bus driving off on Mount Everest into the Marinas Trench with the entire zone being riddled with mines. It would be all over in a second... *mwhahahahahahahahah- cough coughity*

My sudden absence EXPLAINED

Alright, so you know these phases that all people go through? Certain obsessions that people grow out of? The Sims 3 forum was one of them. Don't get me wrong,Ii loved chatting and all, but once my game fried the computer's hard drive and I couldn't play it without a bazillion crashes (I mean the game would crash my whole computer) my love for the forum weaned. Sure, it was cool seeing the cool modeling pictures, or the rants and leaving-forever-goodbyes... excuse me, kindly reviews for the new patches, but me knowing that I couldn't be able to play that kinda set a damper on my mood. And once summer ended, I disappeared- but contrary to belief, it really wasn't school that made me leave. If anything, school just made me more bored. There was a variety of reasons:

1) My parents' on/off relationship (they almost divorced AGAIN)
2) My cat dying of cancer in March
3) Her brother going blind and needing round-the-clock care
4) Being grounded for "not applying myself in school" (it should be known I'm an honor student ._.)
5) And finally, my personality changing. I'm going to discuss this more in the next paragraph:

So everyone knew me as the quiet, shy, silly but nice peacemaker there. (not pacemaker, I didn't prevent heart attacks. I'm a teenager, not a doctor.) And while I still try my hardest to stay polite, I can be loud and often rude with my points. I'm incredibly sarcastic now, and I feel it wouldn't be tolerated well on the boards.

"But dolphinz, didn't you come back around the new year?" Yeah, but that was during winter break, when I was incredibly bored. The forum was a way to ease my boredom. Once school started back up, my activity died down. That does make sense, right?

And for you nutcases who didn't notice, I've got a new layout. I'm picky. LOVE ME.

4.26.2011

So yeah hai

Hey guys.
Remember this one chick?
I think her name was... Dolphinz or something like that?
I could be wrong though.

Happeh

So our beloved cat has hypertension. His blindness will be permanent, the only thing he can see is a bit of light, no shapes or colors. His blood pressure is skyrocketing: 204/185. However, the vet said he looks better than most 15-year-old cats, and he still has a few good years left in him. Taking this into consideration, she gave us medication to help him.

I HAVE A LIVING KITTEH.

Love Will Find A Way

My love, in this case, is the Sims. And for the first time in about 6 months, I will have it reinstalled and play it again, no complications.

Bathtime is a great time to think.

And invent the stupidest, most absurd song in the world.

(Chorus)
(There's a hammer in my butt
There's a hammer in my butt
Hammer in my butt
Yeah, a hammer in my butt)(x2)

Hammer:
Hey hey girl, I appear to be stuck
I'm sorry about this, I really like ducks
That line was totally out of context
And now I'm sure you're completely vexed
Hey hey babe, this is just a glitch
Hopefully soon it gets fixed
But not by EA, three guesses why
And just so you know, I believe I can fly!

(Chorus)


Hahaha, don't ask.

On the subject of real life...

Many of my friends on various forums were chatting about this new game called Real Life. They'd talk about it all the time, like "I need to get a Life"If everyone's supposed to get one, I figured, hey, why be left out?

So I headed down to the local gaming store and asked for a copy of Real Life. They said it can be very challenging and some people play it wrong which ends up ruining them, so they simply gave me the trial version and told me to go nuts.

I threw the game away a week later, disappointed. While the graphics were amazing, there was only one land to explore, all the characters were pretty much the same (either preppy teens or overprotective parents) and it was loaded with extra work (this homework stuff takes forever to complete, and the reward is only satisfying after two months!) Plus, all the power-ups and extra features are terribly overpriced. i'm not paying that much for a shirt, no matter how cute it is!

However, people kept raving about Real Life, saying there are millions of lands to explore, and you can create your own future and become your own person. They said the game's an free-play, "sandbox mode" game, which I love. And the screenshots they provided me blew my mind. I had to have this.

Once again, I headed down to the game store, and begged them to let me buy the full copy of Real Life. I was denied this privilege, however, as apparently you have to out of high school to own a full copy of Real Life. I find this confusing and rude to minors, but they informed me of things in the game, things nobody should ever have to know of.

Horrible things.

So, I'll just have to wait out, oh, five more years to buy my copy of Real Life. But I've been told it's worth the wait, and every day I get closer!

Sleepy time

Dreaming about my blog. Is that supposed to be normal or something? O.o

1.17.2011

So... a little help, anyone?

I'm gonna be entering high school in less than six months, and I'm really wanting a laptop. Now, I realize it takes a lot of power to run the Sims, but I'm just looking for, at the least, the Sims 2 base game. So, what's the cheapest computer you know of that can play without (many) complications? I'm not looking to buy something that can play every game in the world at once with ease, but I don't want some piece of crap, either (I have over 300 bucks right now, and I intend on putting them to good use.)

Yet ANOTHER Helpful Hint

All that Nutella looks like a good idea on the sandwich, but not so much once it oozes out on your hand.

1.10.2011

Another Helpful Hint

If you're pouring a drink, always check to make sure the glass is right-side-up.

My input on the Ruthless_KK incident...

First off, the EA admins have got to be drunk. The equation h(p)+n=admin (in which h stands for maker of houses, p stands for prettiness. and n stands for general niceness) doesn't seem to hold up here.

And as for her using Mare's to patrol the forums... well, for starters, while a devoted simmer, she's also a mother and has a life to live. And she's rarely out of the Creative Corner, which, obviously, doesn't see quite as many troublemakers as our dear General Section.

While using a "gossip blog" (my apologies for using that term, Mare) isn't really the best idea if you plan on keeping a reputation high and mighty, she can't devote all her time to checking the forums. I'm not pleased with the situation, but I'm not planning on cussing her out any time soon, either.

BUT SHE HATES THE MARE?
OOH IM'A GET HER IM'A GET HER

It'd be nice to remember this later in life...

If you have a sudden urge to vomit, and you think you see a spider, don't turn your head to avoid it. One, vomit will be all over the place, and two, the spider will be a piece of fuzz.

Flu Season Affects Us All.

So it's flu season, and it's really affecting our family.

I got it.
Then my mom got it.
Then my sister got it.
Then my dad got some of it.
Then my cat got it.
Then my other cat got it.

Cat sneezes are funny things, though... they just go like "choo!" And you're like "aww did my poor wittle baby just make a wittle sneezie?" and they're all "Dude, fudge off."
