H2G2 Best Bang Since the Big Baang!

(no subject)

After a bit of a great start, I noticed this isn't exactly a kicking community. I don't know if it is because I've been absent for long stretches of time (I am the creator of this particular community on LJ) or if it is just because people fell off of the bandwagon, or other reasons I couldn't fathom at the moment.

So, I'm curious -- what other Primal/Paleo/Caveman/Whatever forums or communities do you frequent? I like to read the forums on Mark's Daily Apple, when I remember to. I think that's about it.

I know I keep SAYING it, but I'm going to try to draft my "plan of attack" tonight/tomorrow. Both me and my husband would like to now tone/muscle up. We also want to get more strict with the way we've been eating as well as finally start using our gym membership.

How often do you work out? I couldn't do it on a "normal" weekly basis, since my work schedule rotates every 5 days as opposed to 7. I was thinking of going to the gym to use their free weights and I could possibly go 2 out of every 5 days if I wanted to stick to a more normal schedule. If I only did it once every five days that could possibly work...Meh.

I've been doing a lot lately...Mainly online. The reason I was neglecting this community is because I got back into making cartoon dolls; it's sort of like pixel art. It's a trend which started on The Palace Chat software servers, back in 1997 or thereabouts. I helped bring the trend over to the internet in general (I'm sort of known for it XD har har!). Anyhoo so I started creating a Palace chat server again (Palace is a 2-d graphical chat where you can wear avatars to represent you while chatting) as well as working on my old website (http://ver.rubberhouse.net). So...Yeah. Busy!

So on a whim I downloaded a new version of Palace software to check it out.  Oddly enough, I've done this every so often -- though this time around it looks as though some real developers got interested in it.  It's apparently not being developed commercially or anything, just by other people who like Palace.  The one thing that really strikes me is the fact that dolls/sk8er avs are no longer the normal avatar you see being worn at Avatar Palace.

And I'm going to guess the vast majority of you reading this won't understand this but I'll say it anyways.  Avatar Palace merged with Balamb Garden server and now it's just regular pictures being worn.  I don't understand!  Where did the doll/sk8er avatar makers go?  I mean I know Palace isn't mainstream at all or anything, but mainly people used it for the "dolls" and the creation of them.

Anyhoo, I did find a neat Palace named Darling Dollz (server is darlingdollz.epalaces.com:9998 if you want to connect via Palace chatting client) that does in fact have what you and I know as dolls.  In fact, I've even found some of mine mixed in the rooms :>

In fact I emailed the owner named Violablu, asking in general about Palace and dolls, and got a response from her the very next day.  It's nice because she remembered me because of my dolling website.  

Meh.  All the dolling forums and websites I knew and loved are gone, or haven't been updated in years (much like my site!).  Boo. Guess it's time to start touring around again.

Birthday :) 30 years old!

And truth be told, I don't feel like I'm 30.  Hell, I don't even feel like a fully-fledged adult yet.  But that's OK.  Had my birthday party(s) and it was good.  Wasn't great, considering I invited about 60 people in all (mostly Rocky Horror cast member/previous cast members) and I didn't have many people show up.  I think the "bummed" part mainly stems from the fact that I bought a massive amount of food and drink and now I still have some leftover.  I think there were maybe 10 people at my 4pm party and 15 at my after Rocky Horror party.

It was still good fun though.  We got a keg of Woodchuck hard cider in addition to a limited amount of spirits.  Mr. Ed Lipinski also brought over 4 other bottles of vodka lol barely anything was drunk.  Anyhoo it was nice that I didn't have to perform at Rocky.  There was a new guy that performed as Frank.  I did however do Trixie and that was an experience.  I was so nervous!  I never get nervous for Frank but then again I perform as Frank all the time.

Well.  I totally broke my diet and ate all sorts of crap -- tomorrow I'll be better :)
