hey all. first off.. thanks for participating in this month’s free for all friday. i’ll actually be leaving my FFAF open until tomorrow morning.. since i got a bit of a late start.. so feel free to post if you want. but i wanted to take the ’sticky’ post off, so i could post this week’s photo hunters pic a bit early. this week the theme is ‘water’… so i had a hard time narrowing this down.. but i decided on using a picture that i took for my photography class when i was in college. this was taken in an abandoned warehouse in the fifth ward of milwaukee.

“I’m calling to urge President Bush to implement “Plan B” to help bring an end to the genocide in Darfur. Specifically, I am asking him to:
Enforce tough sanctions against Sudan;
Work with the UN to authorize and enforce a no-fly zone over Darfur to protect civilians from Sudanese bombers; and
Press the UN for faster deployment of UN peacekeepers to protect civilians in Darfur. “

Hi everyone, yoshi here! I’ve come over from Pandora’s to participate in FFAF! I’ve also got FFAF open on my site as well, so feel free to run on over there and make a post.

So, I didn’t have any ideas. I mean it’s tough to come up with unique posts on FFAF I think. So I had to take the wikipedia birthday route. Here’s some interesting things that happened on my birthday. (November 12):

1980 – The NASA space probe Voyager I makes its closest approach to Saturn and takes first images of its rings.
1993 – The first Ultimate Fighting Championship is held in Denver, Colorado. (this is pretty interesting)
2001 – In New York City, American Airlines Flight 587, an Airbus A300 on its way to the Dominican Republic, crashes minutes after takeoff from John F. Kennedy International Airport, killing all 260 on board and five on the ground. (this is just gruesome.)

Some interesting folks who share the same birthday:

1929 – Grace Kelly, Princess Grace of Monaco, American actress (I totally didn’t know this.)
1934 – Charles Manson, American cult leader and mass murderer (ugh)
1945 – Neil Young, Canadian singer, songwriter, and musician (cool!)
1958 – Megan Mullally, American actress
1968 – Sammy Sosa, Dominican Major League Baseball player (dude, how cool is this? we have the same exact birthday! Go Sammy!)

And to top it all off, November 12th, 1955 is the very day the lightning strikes the clocktower in Back to the Future. Now how cool is that?

Don’t forget to head on over to my site to participate in the FFAF there as well!

Hello there, lovely people! This is Pandora, coming to you from Pandora’s Box! Tracy popped into my blog for FFAF, so I had to return the favor!

So, here’s what I’m thinking. It’s an absolutely gorgeous day over in Pandora land. The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, and it’s just perfect to be outside in jeans with a light jacket. How I adore this kind of weather! It makes me want an egg salad sandwich and a cup of hot chocolate. (=

I sometimes don’t know what to write when I visit other people’s blogs. Tracy gave some great suggestions, though. I have to say I am passionate about writing. I love to write and I wish I would do it more. I’ve been told I’m actually rather *good* at it, so – I need to do it some more. (; I am going to go back to NaNoWriMo novel very soon and get some more of it done. I feel awlful I didn’t finish the 50000 words this past November. I’m also passionate about old school NES video games. (If you’ve been to my blog, that’s no shock. XD ) The Legend of Zelda is my absolute FAVORITE of all time. BEAUTIFUL.

Anyway! You can visit me at the Box and tell me your life story too! XD

Thanks for having me, Tracy! (=

hey look.. it’s friday. but not just friday.. it’s a FREE FOR ALL FRIDAY!

it’s been SO long since i’ve participated in a free for all friday (FFAF) … so i’ll refresh everyone’s memory.

this is the day when YOU post on my blog (everymoment.org.. for those of you who are reading my cross posted entries on lj, xanga or myspace).

instructions are as follows:

1) if you have a login name and password for em.org, log-in with that information. if you don’t remember it, there’s a way to retrieve/change your password on that page. once you are logged in… click on “write” and write an entry.

or 2) if you don’t have a login name here on everymoment.org, i have set up a ‘guest’ user for today only. go log-in with:
username: guest
pass: ffafriday
then click on “write” and write a journal entry.

as for a topic to write about… it doesn’t matter. if you are really stumped and need a suggestion.. take one of these ideas:
a) update everyone on a strange/interesting/crazy/shocking/(etc.) current event in your “home town”
b) what are you passionate about?
c) go to wikipedia and type in your name or birthday and share some of the results you get.
d) music or bands that you think we should know about.

alright… everyone understand? good. now i expect lots of people to post entries. ready. set. GO!

yesterday i was close to having a breakdown. why? code. actionScript to be exact. i was trying to do one of these they are interactive floor plans. we do them here for work.. and our programmers have developed a nice template… with instructions.. that i spent hours trying to decipher and put into practice… but then my brain exploded and leaked out of my head…

today a coworker helped me with the project.. and *poof* success -) so i’m proud of myself.

code still makes my brain hurt though.
