(no subject)

New layout (again) which is actually an old layout I liked and so am reusing. Planning on slapping on a different background for some color though, I neeeeed color this time of year. 
On a slightly related note: Who can teach an idiot how to make pretty gifs? I mainly need to know for one specific gif, I found only one similar and it was way too huge and kind of crappy color-wise. I have some basic, half-forgotten knowledge of Photoshop 7 (yes, 7, I got a copy from a friend at mom's work when I was in my teens - bad Spuffy manips ensued!) and have recently started poking with GIMP (FREEEE!) and once upon a time I did even know how to make animations so I'm only almost a complete noob. 

Had a slight case of my entire bathroom being flooded tonight. The plug thingy in the sink had gotten knocked in by accident (or more likely cat-cident) and the washing machine dumps all the water in the sink instead of straight down a drain or something logical like that, because whoever put it in thought that was a good idea. IT WAS NOT A GOOD IDEA. Appearantly at some point some witch put a curse on me to have all my bathrooms flood on me - this keeps happening wherever I go. I suppose as far as curses go it could be worse, but it's hella annoying nonetheless. 

Still reeeeally enjoying The Secret World btw, the missions I found yesterday have this crazy Nightmare Before Christmas/Corpse Bride vibe so you know I'm all over that. They took place at a fairground, too, my number 1 favorite setting for any type of horror hijinks. There was this book I read when I was younger and entering into my horror-fascination-phase for the first time, what was it called... Tess something, IDK, it was based around an amusement park and I read it like 100 times, along with a couple of others book by (I think) the same author. Diane Hoh, that was the author's name, my weirdo IMBD-memory appearantly stretches to certain authors - I freaking adored her books. (PS Found it. Man, there were a LOT more books in that series than I knew about! Maybe I'll read them all, for the sake of my 12 year old self.)

TV review time, although it'll be an abbreviated version because I started on it earlier and then accidentally shut down the browser and I can't type it all again. It's not like it was good comments anyway, and most of the eps today were kind of disappointing. So, in short:
