Cruise, B Days, Gaming and stuff  
Thanks everyone for all the cool comments on my last photo dump. I just put the next batch into a folder and know now that there will be two more photo dumps then I will be done. I want to make a rant I keep putting off.

Yahoo email. They forced me to change from classic to the new one. I HATE it. I had to do it because I was doing some business on it and I HAD to get into it. But for a few days I did not log in because I did not want to push the button. It's got that infinite scroll crap that is plaguing all sites now. It's the "in" thing and it is garbage. I loathe it! When you put someone's address in the info, if they are in your address book it puts their name and you can't see the address. This is bad if I need to copy and paste it. You can't. You only see a mouse over box but you can't copy out of that. So inconvenient. Mail classic worked fine. And there's an annoying tab on the side that makes everything too skinny. You can stretch it but if you scroll it falls back in. WTF? I told you to stay open? Why would it close when I told it to stay open. F'n! Yahoo screwed up Flickr. I will never forgive or forget it and like comic book guy I will spread my disgust throughout the world about it forever. Now they went and did the same thing to mail. I have been a loyal user for over a decade I think. That's been bugging me for weeks now.

Ok, on to better news. The cruise is paid off as of today! Woo hoo! I'm so proud of myself. Now I just need to save up at least for the one shore excursion. I need to save up to pay for my website that expires in early Oct. Now I can register my passports on the website. I didn't want to pay for any shore excursions either until the whole trip was paid off in case something went wrong.

I ordered a few more hanging baskets too. This is the first time Novosel has been closed, but ordering online was still open. They say they'll process everything on the 5th. So my poor nepenthes have to sit in their bad soil just a bit longer.

actipton80, I just found out your B Day is in a few days. I sent you a gift. So watch your mail for something from Amazon. Oh and everyone loved Nigel. You should see all the comments on his pic in that last post I made.

I didn't sleep well last night and my side still hurts quite a bit. I started Red Dead Redemption. I will play again today. I hope I will stay focused enough to beat the game. I hope I have time to draw today too. I'm very happy with my drawing of George as a hybrid. I want to color some of those pics, and start to write up his bio. That means I need to do that on Nabyn. It's all I use that site for now. To make bios for DA. I'm in a good mood but just don't feel well because stuff hurts. But I still think today will be a good day. The annoying trucks are out there chopping trees, but it's a lovely day. I'll drown out the noise by shooting some cowboys.

Current mood: It hurts

That's annoying about Yahoo, especially since it messes up. I have a paid account there so I can bring in my email without having to visit the site. I use Thunderbird and get my mail in there for my main account but all others I go online for, though I don't check them often.

Glad the cruise is paid off!! I paid the deposit for my trip to Turkey in November with Mum. It'll be to the Lycean coast and Antalya, all inclusive, which will be interesting since I've never had a vacation like this before. Just applied to renew my passport too, so I'm waiting for that. I need a new suitcase as well. Mum's getting flustered but I know how all these things work. We've both done lots of travelling this year.

Thank you for the birthday gift btw! It was a nice surprise ^^ I'll buy something nice with it.

I didn't sleep well either and my back and feet ache from work. We were very busy, solidly, all day, putting out the back to school shoes. Heheh shooting games are always fun for blowing off steam.

I forgot there were yahoo paid emails.

Yeah, I was worried for a time but I got it paid a week before it was due. What kind of trip will that be? Some kind of guided tour? Those can be nice if you don't want to plan and just go with the flow. I did a big European bus tour back in 1991. I want a new suitcase too. Nothing wrong with mine but I don't like the color at all. A blue or pink one would be nice in the same size.

You're welcome. I wanted to buy you something during that month but I just didn't have any money and with all the travel money hasn't been good until now. I felt bad I didn't do anything but now I'm glad you can get something you want.

Taking a break from my game and came out to look online. Yeah it's back to school here too now that it's the end of Summer.

Yes I think it's a tour. We'll stay in either a 4 or 5 star hotel and the travel agency we're going with has good reviews. We'll be seeing the Lycean ruins and some sort of special chalk springs I forget the name of. My case was broken coming back from South Africa so I need a new one. I want a sturdy one though. Fabric ones rip and hard shell ones can split, so I'm not sure yet.

Kids here go back in September but they start back to school in shops early. They break up the end of July.

Oh I remember that now. Hard shell is better but more heavy. I'm not strong anymore so I need to have everything be light and easy.

Same here but supplies need to be out early so they can prepare. I never liked going back to school, but Halloween was always around the corner and that made it so nice.

I loathe infinite scroll. There is a website I sometimes surf that switched, and now I have to scroll through tons of stuff I've already looked at because there isn't a page jump at the bottom of each page any more.

I need to go to that entry and check out how much people like my big green bubba.

I'm watching my mail for it. Thanks in advance.

I'd like to punch the guy that invented it. I like having pages to click also.

Nigel is famous.

You're welcome.

Yay, I'm glad your trip is paid off! And hopefully you can save for at least one shore trip. And then you need to save for spending money!

Everything should clear at my bank on Monday so I will know how much I have left then and what I need to save for.
