LOL your too right :D


I have two "flashback" pictures and around 1/3 of the text done, so I'm around 1/2 there I would say content wise, but 1/3 in presentation (I'm a tweak-a-hollic with this stuff; I even get it pre-checked *I'm not that good at English * )

I think I'm gonna go edit crazy for the thumbs, and then add the originals as the full-sized ones. But I'll do that all in one go for uniformality


What's everyone else doing?!

well, i have to get a bit creative...i don't have internet on my sims laptop so i have to transfer the pics to our mac...plus i don't really want my parents knowing how crazy i am about sims so i have to do it all secret-like...in any case, i just did my app and round 1 in one sitting each...the round 1 was so much easier than the app cause at least i had my story hammered out...

edit: congrats on starting the chatter page :P

Lol, thanks :D


Actually, I am finding the app to be MUCH easier to do than the first round. I was able to just write.. Whereas now I have to make it ~flow~ :D

For Round 1 I just got my dad's photo album and surfed through it to get an idea of what I wanted for my pictures. That's where I found the swimming idea.

For one of my photos it's a prom picture - of Gabby. :]
I'm probably not going to link my photos - as most jugdes dislike it and get muddled up :/
haha - i'm going to go in-game now and i'll probably get one/two pictures done then i'll have to come off the pc - so much to do :[

Charley, based off of my judging experience I didn't really have a problem with linked photos. Except when I link to them and the photo is just terrible, that's when I get pissed, what's the point of clicking the photo when it sucks!

Opening lyrics:
*electro opening*
I walk along the avenue, Never thought I'd meet a girl like you (meet a girl like you)

"I Ran" (Flock of Seagulls cover) Hidden In Plain View

Useless chatter:
Dreamydre, You are a toadstool sandwitch on a snow day in the middle of summer!
:D
Petchy, ...You sniff lettuce leaves on your birthday!
:trix:

Round One Chatter:
School needs to go eat dog treats (they do taste gross, I would know).
I have a bagillion amount of homework and it's only our first week back.
So I had to spend like 15 minutes everyday (3 days) just to finish something that is so simple.
My idea of simple- CUTENESS! *press C button*...CUTENESS! *press C button* etc.
:D

Closing Lyrics:
The time that you danced whith no music playin', Do you remember those simple things? ....
He said his biggest regret, the one thing he will not forget is saying, 'Goodbye'

"Goodbye" Miley Cyrus
:tooth:

...I use an abundance (I used big word :P) of smilies....

So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I had some good ideas, maybe. I got one pic done, and then I got a migraine and just spent the last two days sleeping and heaving. Fun, fun, fun.
Then tonight when I woke up finally around midnight, do I work on this contest? Oh, hell, no. I play the orphanage challenge.

I pretty much slaved away at the "sitting together, looking at the photo album" shots.

I hate how I always go crazy decorating for a picture, and then only a small fraction of the room ends up in the shot. :[

And then I had tons of quality problems, because the size limit for inline pictures is 175kb, and one went over - but then looked bad when I decreased the quality! [I don't like linking based on quality, because most of my pictures are rather small-sized]

*sigh* I think I got them all sorted out, but now I'm too lazy to do the memory ones. ;D

My sims are having more fun than me as I re-create their lives. Last night, I told them to go up on the main deck and fight the pirates, instead, they take their sweet-arse time getting up there and then instead of doing what I said, they all go drink beer and get drunk with said pirates. Then they all go out and play with swords. Smart Sims, smart Sims. Morons.
Why is it I rarely took pics of anything before I discovered this site? I think I have a total of six old pics that might work for this round.

I'm terrified about mine to be true, I've had the tenses chef twice by two different people; I NEVER write in present, it's too odd for me, kinda like we are trying to keep up with the action, not see it unfold.. mmmm *shrug*


Aah well, all in all right?
