website / first red bra & fury at VicSecret / phone crap / last.fm

I'm really looking forward to having some 'extra' money... as soon as I can afford it, I'm going to buy a new webhost (probably with www.dreamhost.com) and transfer both my jewelry and personal websites to it... which will mean it's impossible to hotlink and I'll be able to set up my photography portfolio again, and I'll probably get inspired to actually work on my website. I need more bandwidth than I currently have, because my site's getting a lot of hits lately -- over 400 unique hits in 3 weeks! LJ has kinda taken the place of coding lately, but I really miss it. It's one of my favorite creative outlets. And I really want to work on the Egypt part... but I need to organize exactly what I want to do first. I'll be really happy to be able to set up my portfolio again -- once I took it down I realized how much I missed it. I love that part of me... especially with my growing love for my body. I ♥ curvygirls.

I just bought my first red bra! and officially boycotted 'Victoria's Secret' (read that in a snotty tone) because of their emaciated mannequins. It's not enough that they have mannequins that are far, far thinner than the average woman, no, they have to add protruding bones! BONES on a fucking MANNEQUIN. I was FURIOUS. I looked around for a helpless employee on whom to vent my wrath, but got too fed up and ended up marching out of the store. I went to Fredricks of Hollywood (who have a much wider range of colors anyway, VS only carries my size in black and nude), who will be getting my business from now on. And I plan to bad-mouth VS to anyone who will listen. Fuckers.

Phone is still off, after talking to three different people. I'm (possibly) going into an official store tomorrow. We're definitely switching phone companies, unless they do back flips to make up for all this. Maybe even then. grrr. I was missing aubkabob's voice so much that I listened to her songs a few times. Weird since we've only talked once, but still true.

I have so much I want to post about... I might just break my personal rule and post several in a row. But they won't all be as complainy as this!

And omg, I LOVE this thing that jamina1 introduced me to -- http://www.last.fm/user/belenen/ It shows everything you listen to on the computer and keeps stats! So very cool! I'm excited.
