Computer problems galore!

Due to many many computer problems, I have not been updating my blog lately. Or my poor poor webcomic. There is also the problem of me not having any free time due to school and work. Do not worry readers, whoever you are, I will be back to updating my blog with nonsense soon.

She's gone?

Yesterday started out like any other day, heard Tara's alarm go off with the usual rumblings around the house and heard her dash out the door to work. Expected her home after work because she didn't tell me she was going anywhere. While taking the trash out, I saw a glint in the leaves and saw that it was her video camera. As I watched her last video, I became extremely concerned. This is the video.

~StormofStarzZ2 aka Tara's mommy.

The Tall Slender Man

It's short story Thursday again. I know I haven't posted a story in awhile. This is a story from when my brother and I were children. A true story, or the overactive imagination of two children? I'll leave that up to you.

My brother and I used to live in a small town in California. We used to play in an area we called the Canyons, a bunch of trails in the woods, all covered with what seemed to be a massive amount of red clay, which was always staining our clothes. We often played there into late in the night. It could be very scary, there was often prints in the mud from mountain lions. My brother and I were very brave, and even this couldn't scare us. This night, however, there was something that did scare us.

We were walking along one of the darker paths. The sun had already gone down and the only light was from the stars and the moon. It was then that it got deathly quiet, as if all the sound had been sucked out the air. I could swear that I couldn't even hear my own heartbeat. We then saw a shape emerging from the woods.

It was too dark to see well, but he appeared to be a man. An abnormally tall slender man, whose limbs seemed as if they were way too long. I couldn't see his face, it was too dark. My brother and I stood transfixed, afraid to move or run away. The man beckoned to my brother, and my brother started to move closer to him. As I was watching, the man seemed to grow even taller, his arms becoming too long to even be considered human. I grabbed my brothers arm and dragged him away from the man, whose arms seem to be getting closer and closer to us. As we ran, sound returned in a crashing boom.

That night I couldn't sleep. I kept thinking I could hear the sound of something tapping at my window, but I was too afraid to get up to look.

Later on, one of the other children in the neighborhood went missing. I'm not sure what happened to him, as we moved to Pennsylvania shortly afterward. I sometimes still think I can hear something tapping at my window. I'm still too scared to look.

Happy Birthday to me!

That's right, today, speak like a pirate day, is my 23rd birthday! I feel old now.

I'm gonna do something I don't normally do in this blog. Talk about my real life. I recently broke up with this guy. A guy I've loved for many years. The thing is, we are no good for each other, but we have a bad habit of hooking up every time we see each other. Now that I'm 23, I've decided to make a change. I'm going to do things differently now. I've deleted him from my Facebook, I've deleted his number from my phone, I'm deleting him out of my life. It hurts, but I can't continue to do this to myself. I need to be independent now. I need to start my life without him. Today, I begin my new life. This year is going to be better.

Worst Song Ever

It's random Youtube Monday again! This song is so awful you'll have no choice but to listen to it till the end.

Sunday, September 06, 2009

Customer is Not Always Right.

I've been reading a blog called Not Always Right. It's about how customers are not always right, even if they think they are. I've decided to write up some of my own. Note, I'm a manager at a Taco Bell

Customer: I want a Mango freezie thingy

Me: Ok one Strawberry Mango Frutista, that will be $2.00

Customer: Can you make it with more ice? It was too slushie last time

Me: I can't do that, it's a machine, it only has one setting

Customer: Can't you just add more ice?

Me: No...I can't really do that.

Customer: I really want it to not be as slushie, just add more ice, ok?

Me: *giving up* Sure thing

(I pour his frutista, it's the same consistency it always is)

Customer: Wow thank you! This is so much better than the last time!

Me:'re welcome.


Customer: I'd like some breadsticks.

Me: Uh, what?


Me: We don't sell breadsticks here

Customer: Yes you do! I got them here last time I was here!

Me: Uh, are you sure you are at the right place? We are Taco Bell. We've never sold breadsticks.

Customer: YES! I got them here last time! GIVE ME MY BREADSTICKS!

Me: Really, we don't have them. I'm not lying.

Customer: YES YOU DO...Oh yeah that was a different store. *drives off really fast*


Customer: I'd like a coffee.

Me: We don't serve coffee here, but there is a Tim Horton's right next door. Do you want anything else?

Customer: *getting angry*: How about a six piece crispy chicken?

Me: Umm...We don't have that here either. There is a KFC right next to the Tim Horton's though

Customer: *really angry* FINE JUST GIVE ME A SMALL FRY!

Me: You're all kinds of confused, but if you want a french fry there is a McDonald's right across the street.

Customer: *storms out*


Customer: What comes on a cheese roll?

Employee: Ummm...cheese?

Customer: YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO BE RUDE ABOUT IT! *drives away*

Me: Did that really just happen?


Customer: I'd like a Volcano Taco

Employee: Sure, anything else?

Customer: Do you still have tacos?

Employee: What?

Customer: Tacos, do you still have them?

Employee: You...just ordered one?

Customer: Oh I thought maybe you stopped serving them.

(a little while later)

Different customer: Do you still have cheese?

Me: What is going on!?


Customer: (From outside the drive thru window) OH MY GOD! I WANT TO TALK TO YOUR MANAGER!

Me: I'm the manager how can I help you?


Me: Well, we can replace it for you. But didn't you buy those tacos 4 hours ago? (I have a good memory for customers)


Me: Maybe it came from your car?

Customer: NOOOOOOOOO! AHHH *screams incoherently in the parking lot about spiders for about a half an hour*

Another employee: Did she want a refund?

Me: I have no idea...


Customer: I'd like to talk to the manager

Me: Yes, I'm the manager.

Customer: NO! I want to talk to the other manager.

Me: I'm the only manager on duty right now.

Customer: What about that guy? *points at one of our older employees*

Me: No really I'm the only manager. He's not a manager.

Customer: You are too young to be a manager. (I look like I'm pretty young, but I'm 22 years old)

Me: *points at my nametag that says I'm a shift manager*

Customer: Hey you over there! Can you help me? I need a manager!

Employee: She's the manager.

Customer: WELL I DON'T HAVE TO TAKE THIS SHIT! *storms out*


Customer: I came here the other day, and they put cheese on my chicken tacos! I want chicken tacos with no cheese for free!

Me: No problem sir.

(I help the employees make the order, making sure there is no cheese on the tacos)

Customer: I am allergic to cheese, you sure there is no cheese on them?

Me: I made them myself. There is no cheese sir.

Customer: Ok.

(He leaves. The next day I hear a familiar voice over the headset)

Customer: I bought chicken tacos last night and they had cheese on them!

Me: Please pull up to them window.

Customer: THERE WAS CHEESE ON MY TACOS! I want them again for free.

Me: No, there was no cheese on them sir.

Customer: YES THERE WAS.

Me: No there wasn't. I made them last night. I didn't put cheese on them.

Customer: But there was cheese on them

Me: That's impossible. I made them and I know for a fact I put no cheese on them.

Customer: I thought there was cheese on them...

Me: Yeah, there wasn't cheese.

Customer: Well I won't be coming back here AGAIN!

Me: Yeah, that's probably for the best.

Tara Storm the Comic?

I have for long wanted to do a comic with my character Tara Storm. She's my second character I ever designed, the first being Angelic Wings, as seen in another one of my blogs. Tara Storm has gone through some redesigns over the years. The first comic she appeared in was this one:

Later she got a bigger comic, full color and all prettyfied

Click for full view

And then she had some pictures of her own, when I couldn't keep up with that comic...

Now I am thinking about another comic with dear Tara Storm in it, a more simplified comic, that I can keep up with. I redesigned her character again, almost back to the original Tara Storm.

I'm just wondering if I'll have enough time to do a comic, but I think it will help me. It won't have a regular schedule or anything, but I think it will help me when I'm stressed out...we'll see what happens from here.

My Top 5 Trippy Animes

Today I will be presenting to you the top 5 animes that make you feel like you are on a drug trip! These are animes that I have personally watched. If you have also seen an anime that you felt was trippy, let me know in the comments so I can watch it too!

5. Bakemonogatari

Literally meaning monstories {Mix of monsters and stories} This anime is new, but it already very strange. It's about a boy who was recently cured of being a vampire {although some effects still remain} and how he finds himself mixed up with all kinds of freaks and monsters.

4. Paranoia Agent

This anime focuses on a criminal named Lil Slugger, and his victims. Lil Slugger attacks each victim with a baseball bat, but there seems to be a strange connecting thread to all the victims. What is it? Well you'll have to watch to find out.

3.Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei

What would seem to be an ordinary school life anime, is actually much stranger. The title meaning "Goodbye Mr. Despair", this comedy anime is about a class full of students with strange quirks, and a teacher who always takes everything to the most negative extreme. Watch, laugh, enjoy.

2. Welcome to the NHK

An anime about a hikikomori {a shut-in} who mets a strange girl who tries to convince him to stop being a hikikomori. This anime has a lot more strange elements than you would think, watching it is a very strange experience at points.

1. Serial Experiments Lain

This anime is about a girl named Lain, and her discovering "The Wired" which is equivalent to the internet. When Lain recieves an e-mail from a classmate who had commited suicide, she delves deeper into the mysteries of the wired, and her own mysteries. It's well worth watching.

Other Trippy Animes!
In case you don't like my list, here are some more trippy animes.

Fooly Cooly.

A girl, a robot, and a boy. Will the Earth be destroyed? Watch this short anime to find out!
Neon Genesis Evangelion

Mechs! Fighting! A boy with some serious issues with his parents!

It's an anime movie, and you get to see inside dreams. Dreams can be scary D:

Excel Saga
World Domination! It's harder than it looks actually. They should just start small.

Disclaimer: These animes aren't really in order of trippiness. I suck at making lists.

Draw me a picture!

So I decided to try an experiment, and ask a couple people from different forums to draw me pictures. I simply wanted a cat and dog. First I went to 4chan, and asked /b/.

This is what I got.

Both are by anon. Presumably not the same anon, but we can't really know that for sure >.>

Then I went to Gaia Online.

by -iiBlooper-

by strawberry-xo

Lastly I went to the Adult Swim Message boards, to IB. They seemed the least willing to draw me a picture.

By gratejob

So did we learn anything here about how different forums have different types of people who draw differently? Maybe. Or maybe I just like looking a pictures of cats and dogs together. The world will never know.

The Story That IB wrote.

Today I decided to try an expirement, and write my latest short all live, on a message board called Incoherent Babbling, or IB for short. Here is that story, and the link to the thread is here.

"My only regret will be, knowing how happy we would've been." I say as I slide on my coat, grab my suitcase and head for the door.

You hold me back. I knew you would. This can't be easy for you, seeing me leave like this. This will be better for the both of us. We couldn't play house forever, now could we? I can't bare to tell you any of this, I know it would only make your heart break more. Instead I say nothing.

You beg me not to leave, but as I step out the door, you hold yourself back. You know this is the right thing. I stop, and almost turn back. No, I can't turn back now. If I do I'll never leave and nothing will ever change. We'll be stuck in these same routines forever. We'll never grow and we'll never change. I put my bag into the waiting taxi and tell him to take me to the airport.

....This is goodbye.

The tears began to silently slide down my face. I didn't want the taxi driver to see my pain, yet my pain was so real, so tangiable. I couldn't believe I had left my life behind me. I quickly drew out a tissue from my pocket and dried my tears. Now was not the time to cry. Tonight, alone in my hotel room, with a glass of fine bourbon, that would be the time to cry. Looking longingly over pictures of the past, then my tears would come.

I wondered about my decision to say goodbye to the one I loved. Even if I never saw him again in this lifetime, perhaps in the next life we would met again. Then I would say "Hello again," and hope to never say goodbye again, as long as I lived.

While we were stopped at a red light, my pain still pumping freshly through my vains, I saw him. The young man who I had admired and loved for years, without saying a word. I knew what I had to do. I paid the taxi driver, and jumped out of the car.

I walked up to him, trying to hide my pain, yet he saw it through my eyes. He kissed me deeply and said, "You and me darling, let's run away to Mexico." Not knowing if it was a mistake or not, I agreed with him. To Mexico we would go.

We stopped at a nearby cafe to eat a light lunch. I told him about how I had left my boyfriend of three years behind. He told me that he had just lost his job. It brought me back to the day we first met, right in this little cafe.

We were both there separately. I was sitting by the only outlet in the cafe, typing up my most recent story on my laptop. He needed to plug in his laptop for a story he was writing. I introduced myself as Jane, and I learned his name was Doug. We met at this cafe many times over the years, sharing our triumphs and woes with each other. And now, now we were going to be doing much more together. We were running away from our own lives together.

We soon got into Doug's car and left for our vacation to Mexico. I didn't know what was going to happen, and I felt very nervous. Although I had met with him many times, I still felt like we didn't know each other very well. We started to make small talk. I told Doug about how I liked to watch cats chasing birds around the neighborhood, and how it reminded me of the circle of life. We began to talk more about our childhoods, and the crazy things we had done as children. Doug told me about how he used to love strapping his action figures to rockets and lighting them off. He did this until one day he accidentally broke one of his neighbors windows. He worked all summer to repair that window, feeling so guilty for breaking it in the first place. I felt my heart stirring at Doug's kindness.

We than began talking about our writing careers. I told Doug about my most recent manuscript, to which he replied, "It's no Stephen King, could work." We often bounced ideas off each other. It helped us grow as writers.

I thought back to the sudden kiss we had shared earlier. It had helped ease my pain of leaving my boyfriend. Running away had made me almost forgot entirely. It was almost as if we were just playing a game, running away to Mexico together. This was the kind of thing I had tried to run away from to begin with. I was done playing games, I was done pretending. I didn't say any of this to Doug, who was kindly taking me in his car. I trusted him, and I was going to stick this out. I wanted to know where our lives would go from here.

We stopped at a motel for the night. It was a dirty place, the kind of place you only go when you have nothing left to lose. I carried my bag into the dark room, hoping it had been properly cleaned. We both laid down on the only bed in the room. Doug put his arms around me and whispered into my ear "You know, I've been waiting for this moment for so long, when we could be together. I love you Jane."

"I love you too Doug." My heart instantly skipped a beat. I knew what I said wasn't true. I had yet again been caught up in a moment. I wasn't in love. I just wanted to get away from my life. I excused myself to the bathroom, to think for a moment. I missed him. I missed my boyfriend. I thought I was doing the right thing, but now I wasn't so sure. I was happy with him. I just thought that I'd be happier without him. I was wrong. Dead wrong.

I missed him. I missed my boyfriend. I thought I was doing the right thing, but now I wasn't so sure. I was happy with him. I just thought that I'd be happier without him. I was wrong. Dead wrong.

I walked calmly out of the bathroom. I grabbed my bag, explaining to Doug I was going to go buy something to drink. I walked out of the room closed the door behind me. I was going to run away again, but this time I was going to run back to what had always made me happy, the man that had always stood by my side. I just hoped he would take me back. I called a taxi, and took it to the nearest train station. I felt bad abandoning Doug, but I knew that the only thing that mattered at this point was my own happiness.

It took a long time for the train to reach my home town, but it gave me plenty of time to think. To think of Ken, the only man that had every really made me happy. I had felt like he was holding me down all this time, but in reality, it was only myself that was holding me down. I didn't call him, I decided it would be best to just show up at our house the house we had shared together for the past year. I realized a lot of things. It seemed that perhaps running away had done me more good than I had realized.

I gulped as I knocked on the door of my house, or what had been my house prior to yesterday when I had packed my bag and left. I was scared and nervous, to see his face again, to have him see my face again. I had been so sure I was doing the right thing the day before, but now I knew that I was just a scared little child. I was just trying to escape from some imaginary monster. There was no monster here, just a loving man. There was no pain, the only pain was that which I had created in my own head.

Ken opened the door. My heart was pounding in my chest. "Jane?" He said looking at me with intense eyes.

I didn't know what to say at first, so I said the only thing I could think of. An echo of the last thing I had said to him. "I couldn't leave with any regrets."

MyTouch Phone Review

The MyTouch phone is T-Mobile's answer to the Iphone. I had the unique opportunity to see one right out of box and play with it a bit, and here is my review.

Let's start off with the outside of the phone, which is fully customizable. You can select from different skins and cases to personalize your phone anyway you like it. It comes in a beautiful black case, with the charger/usb port to hook up to your computer to download things. It also has a micro SD slot. It also comes with headphones. But really, the case it comes in is really awesome, much better than the black box Iphones come in.

I may not be very tech savvy, but this phone is running the Android OS, which is one of the best. It has tons of apps, most of which are free. The one I'm interested in the most is one called the Sherpa app. According to the website "This amazing app actually gets to know you better as you use it. It learns your favorite coffee house, bank or pharmacy, and keeps track of your errands with built-in GPS. It even learns the types of restaurants you prefer, and when you search it gives you those options first." It also has widgets you can put on your screen for easy access to the things you use the most, like e-mail and music. It has a full touch screen with a soft keyboard. But what about when you are web browsing and you can't click the link? The MyTouch has an easy solution for that, the trackball, located on the front of the phone, for clicking on things when your fingers are unable to.

I see one big issue with this phone, and that's the battery life. With heavy use, I can easily see the battery dying within a couple hours, although it does look like the battery will be better than the G1 phone's batteries. It's also not the best texting phone, since it lacks a physical keyboard.

All and all, it's a really awesome new phone, and I think it's even better than an Iphone, but I may not be the best judge. Many thanks to the man at the T-Mobile store for letting me play with the MyTouch phone, YOU ROCK. Look for the MyTouch phone, coming to a T-Mobile store near you this August!

Angelic Wings Part 2

It's Short Story Thursday again! Here is the ending of Angelic Wings. You can find the first part here.

I had no idea at first where to start. Gloando had never been an ordinary villain. He had only ever wanted to destroy me. Yet he always let me live, which made me think more and more he must just want my power for some evil plot. He actually rarely ever hurt other people. He only ever used them as a way of getting my attention.

Getting my attention...the fire! Maybe Gloando had set it to see if I still had my powers or not. And maybe he was still there. It was the only clue I had, so I had to act on it.

I don't have a car. It didn't seem necessary to have a car when you can fly and you can hardly afford your apartment, never mind other expenses. But I sure wished I had one now. It seemed it would be such a long walk to the fire. I sighed thinking that Angelic Wings could have flown there in about 3 seconds.

As soon as I stepped outside my apartment, I heard the roar of thunder. A drop of rain fell on my head. "Great" I grumbled. I ran off to where the fire was.

All I could think about was Jake as I ran. My pain in my head had subsided, but the emptiness still remained. Maybe I shouldn't try and get my powers back. Maybe I should call Jake and tell him I'm not a super hero anymore. Let him fill this emptiness inside of me. I didn't stop running though. I just kept dashing through the increasing rain towards a rising tower of smoke.

I was almost at the fire when I looked up in the rain and maybe it was the rain, or because he was on my mind. I thought I saw Jake sitting on top of a telephone pole. Then I came to my senses and realized it was Gloando. I almost ran past him to see if I could help with the fire, but I saw a bunch of fire trucks over there already, and I didn't want to intrude. In any case, there wasn't anything I could do. At that moment Gloando shouted in my direction which made me stop dead in my tracks. "KAREN! So you did lose your powers."

"Yeah! Give them back or you'll pay!"

"Impossible" Gloando grinned.

"But..." I pondered for a moment what to do next when it really hit me. "Wait how'd you know my real name?"

"You haven't figured it out yet?" He grinned widely. I wished I could fly up there and kick him.

"Figured what out you DAMN BASTARD!?" I said, a rage flowing through my veins.

"Glow and don't die, my dear Karen."

My stomach dropped. My mind felt like an angry bee was buzzing around in it, not letting me think anything coherently. "Wha...Jake? No.."

"Oh yes." He waved a hand in front of his face, and it changed as he did so, from the hard evil face of Gloando to the softer kinder face that I knew to be Jake's. Jake jumped down from the telephone pole and somehow landed softly. he hugged me tightly, but I didn't hug him back. I balled my hands into fists. "I love you Karen"

"NO!" I shouted, pushing him away from me violently. "No...Jake? Gloando? I just don't understand. Who are you? Why this? WHY?"

"Karen?" Jake said in a hurt voice.

"Explain yourself! You didn't want me to be a superhero, but you did this? Why Jake Why? This doesn't make any sense at all!"

"I never wanted to hurt you or anyone else..." Jake said staring at his feet. It was like he'd never been Gloando at all. I was so confused.

"Tell me what's going on! I have all the time in the world now that you've taken my powers."

"Don't sound so angry." I glared at him, so he continued. "That day, that day you became Angelic Wings, my life changed as well. You see Dr. Devil was able to steal a part of my soul. I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. I was missing a part of my soul. You couldn't tell by looking at me, but I felt empty inside. Like a part of me was missing, because I guess it was.

"But that day you defeated Dr. Devil, the piece came back! You see I saw that fight, because my missing part of soul saw it from where it was stored with all the other souls. There was a flash of bright white light and you changed. You never told me about this part later on, so I don't think you know what really happened. You became some one who wasn't you or Angelic Wings anymore. It was a real angel. You had these huge wings and a real halo. In your hands you carried a huge sword. You swung the sword at Dr. Devil, but it didn't hurt him. I saw his soul shatter instead, breaking into pieces and most of it leaving my sight. Then all the spirits were freed and went back to their bodies. I stayed behind, I watched as you feel down, turned back to Angelic Wings, back to Karen. That was probably a mistake, me staying behind.

"Don't you see?" Jake started looking more like Gloando again. "Dr. Devil's soul became a part of mine! I never liked you being a super hero and now I finally had a way to stop you." Jake didn't even look at all like himself now. "I tried other ways to make you stop, but I had no choice. I HAD TO USE FORCE." Jake was Gloando again grinning evily. "I love you Karen. I'll keep you safe. I want to lie next to you at night and love you not have to worry about dying. I want you to be normal. Don't you want to be...NORMAL?" Gloando finished and stared at me.

I used to want to be normal...more than anything. To go to school, to have a boyfriend, to go to college, get a job, get married...I wanted it, I wanted to be normal. But now, without my powers I realized what I really wanted. "NO!" I yelled. "This is normal for me. I am ANGELIC WINGS!"

Lightening flashed behind me and I saw my shadow in front of me. It was only for a brief moment, but the shadow wasn't me. It was an angel, with huge wings, a halo, and a sword. I looked at my hand and there was a sword there. It didn't feel heavy. It was unlike anything I had ever held before.

"If that's the way it must be" Gloando said waving his hands in front of his face and completing his transformation to Gloando from Jake. "If I can't have you no one will. GLOW AND DO DIE!"

I guess this was a bad time to figure out that his name was really just the begining of the phrase he used to say to me. "Glow and don't die" and Gloando. I don't know why I never figured it out before, but this was still a bad time to be dwelling on such a thought. Gloando was charging up his green orb again, and I realized what I had to do.

Gloando shot his orb at me, and I took flight. As I expected the orb followed me like it did last time. I wasn't going to fall for the same trick twice. I flew around in circles trying to avoid the orb at all costs. I thought I had almost escaped it when it hit me in the back. This time it had no effect on me at all. I didn't have time to be surprised by this.

I flew down at Gloando with my sword poised at his heart. I could see with what seemed to be new eyes his very soul. I knew what must be done. I struck him in the chest.

Gloando fell down to his knees. I knew he wasn't physically injured, but I had hit his soul. I tore my sword upwards and out of his heart. Gloando fell to the ground completely now, only it wasn't Gloando anymore.

I flew down to the ground, seeing my huge wings in my shadow again. I looked up for the first time to see my wings, but to my surprise, there were no wings. There was no halo either. And I was still wearing my normal clothes. Did that mean that the angel really was me? It was like I was Angelic Wings and Karen Dover at the same time, no transforming. Or maybe I was finally the person I was meant to be all along. I was me.

"Jake!" I said, picking him up from the ground. "Are you ok?"

"I'm...fine...?" He sounded slightly dazed. "What just happened?"

"I tore out Dr. Devil's soul from your soul. You are going to be ok now, you aren't going to be evil anymore. You are really my Jake again."

"I'm so sorry..."

"You don't have to be sorry, that wasn't you..."

Jake interrupted me, "No." He hung his head. "That wasn't all Dr. Devil. Some of what I said really came from me. I don't want you to be a super hero. It's too dangerous."

"Life is full of danger. We could die any moment, it doesn't matter if we are super heroes or not. Please accept me as who I am. This world needs me. They need a hero. And I should be thanking you. If you hadn't tried to steal my powers, I wouldn't have discovered that Angelic Wings was really me all along. I now know my true power."

Jake looked at me with tears in his eyes. He knew I was right. "I'm sorry I couldn't accept you as you were before. I can now. I'm sorry."

"Don't be." I said. "It's really ok. I have you back again now." I started to cry. "I really did always love you."

"I always loved you too. That must be why Dr. Devil used my soul to get revenge on you. Now we can finally be together. Jake and Angelic Wings."

"I'm not Angelic Wings anymore." I smiled through the gradually slowing rain and my tears. "Now I'm just Karen Dover, the person I've been all along. Me. I AM ME!" I shouted. I felt complete. I felt...normal. "Let's get out of this rain."

We walked back to my apartment together. We had a lot of catching up to do. For the first time since I got my powers I felt truly happy. I'm just had to figure out the real me.

It's random Youtube Video Monday again! Here is a video of a kid freaking out.

Sunday, June 28, 2009


So yesterday I went to the mall, with a mission. I was going to buy something expensive and awesome. I had $367. My journey began.

First I got a weird T-shirt

I don't know, I like vampires {not Twilight though, never read it}

Then I got a hoodie.
I like the strips on it. I have a thing for red an black together.

Then we went to the T-mobile kiosk and bugged the man about the new myTouch phone.

He wouldn't tell us anything. Not even how much it costs. Apparently no one knows. That's great T-Mobile! Don't tell us anything about your phone. See how many people will buy it. *angry face*

Then I finally went and got my big purchase for the day. Those of you following me on Twitter {all of you} already know what that purchase was!


Well not really, but a pony would be awesome. Really this is what I got.

A Lenovo Netbook! Costing me $299, I finished my day of extreme mall shopping. Hurray!
