according to reference.com:


The verb to pwn (past tense: pwned, pwnd, pwn'd, pwnt, pooned) as used by the Internet gaming subculture, means to beat or dominate an opponent. While it probably originated as a typing error of the word own, it is now used intentionally by many members of the subculture. The term has become so ubiquitous in Internet circles that it is often used outside of gaming contexts; for example, "He just got pwned in that debate" or "The hunters pwned that bear."

..."the hunters pwned that bear"? i'd find it highly amusing if that was quoted from discovery channel.

ya i'm bored. ya wanna make something of it?

so i went to shibz today, to Bic Camera (a tech hardware store) and got a new computer tablet + pen. so exciting. i've tried experimenting with it and it's heaps of fun!! (i chucked my poor old mouse tho:( ) it takes a few tries getting used to... so for a while i was accidentally exiting from all my windows cuz i didn't know where the cursor was flying. now i've got the hang of it and i've used it on photoshop and it works wonders!!! xD
I uploaded one of the scanned pencil drawings i drew previously and tried adding shade and color to it.

[mood | drained]

so i was looking for free fonts to download to use for photoshop, and i ended up downloading over 20. (yes cuz i have nothing better to do with my time. no, i actually have heaps of things to do but the sloth in me conquered my conscience the moment summer began.)
anyway, i found this site full of free fonts. not only are there a variety of brilliant fonts, but the quotes that display them are frogglin hilarious. i just had to save a few of them. see them here.

[Harry says: cloudy days make me wanna pogo-stick]

so believe it or not, i actually believed that my livejournal days were over. i realize the last time i posted was what... january? *shame* i've been keeping up my myspace pretty much daily.
now i'm finally starting to realize what people mean by getting the blogging addiction. i think this summer, i've been on this computer for more than half the time... probably adds up to like two thirds or smtg. (regardless of the fact that i spent two weeks completely denied of any computer access)
anyway, since i've now got my photoshop *deep sigh of affection* and free summer time, i'll prbly be on lj more often. so heads up on that.

anyway, that's that for now.

[Harry says: Chambers is... well I won't say it out loud but you can probably guess with my expression]

So I apologize greatly for having not posted in decades. I don't believe anyone has missed me anyway. *schmoo* So I got something exciting for us today. I've finally snatched a candid picture of Mr. CHAMBERS!!! XD

Unfortunately, my cell phone wasn't on manner mode so when I took the picture, this huge clicking sound interrupted his speech and the photo shoot ended up not so discreet. But because Chambers is the all-mighty-Lord-of-all-mighty-awesomeness, instead of scolding me, he posed.

...in his Chambers-ish posture. And this one's for Jeannie: We're gonna make our Chambers Tees with this picture. I'll fix it so that he looks more serious. (I'll probably take another picture next class when he does that sober face)

Anyway, that's all for now.

[Harry says: long time no see

I am sooo behind.

So yeah, I can't find a point to trying to explain in detail of all the things that I've forgotten to mention. I find it difficult to sit by the computer screen and describe everything during the holiday season. Here's a little bit, tho:

So Christmas, my mother and I dug up all the cash in our wallets to buy our father/husband (... my mother's husband)(...in case you wanted to know)(...and MY father)(...enough) to buy the man of the house a movie ipod. omg, so spoiled. So he gets a 60 gig movie ipod. I'm satisfied with my presents too tho. Anna Sui wallet, and Y30,000 worth of sho-hin-ken to buy clothes and electronics and stuff with. I'm probably gonna get a scanner printer with that. whoa, gomen I g2g. brb. Curry time.
