Star Wars parody videos

So, everyone has *got* to watch these. They are absolutely hilarious!:







and this one:

This is the worst part of having a pet!

This has been such a hard day for my family! We had to put our 13-year old black lab mix to sleep. We had raised her from a 6-month old puppy. We had decided to take her in for a check-up. We never thought it would end up this way! We thought we would have a little more time with her (at the most a year). I mean, she had been having her good days and bad days, but today would have been a good day. She was wagging her tail and eating treats when we went to say goodbye. What makes it so much harder is that we don't have any other dogs at home for company. With the other dogs we've had to put down, we always had another dog. Sue (the dog we just put down) may have driven us crazy, but we love her & miss her already! It's already so hard not seeing her at home. R.I.P. Sue! We love you & miss you! Thank you for being such a sweet dog!

Must-see Robin Williams tribute

I was so shocked to hear about Robin Williams' death! I grew up watching/ listening to him in Aladdin & to quote one of his sons: "the world just got a little grayer". Whenever he was on the late night shows, he always cracked to me up to the point of crying. He was a comic genius & will be forever missed. Anyway, if anyone hasn't watched this yet, you need to see this, I know it's a bit late, but what the heck:

Update on life

So, I know this is pretty late, but just wanted to talk about a huge event that happened back in May.
My family moved out of our house! I am still very unhappy about it, but I knew it was inevitable. I was just so hoping it wouldn't happen as quickly as it did. It would have been 20 years in that house next year, so I was really hoping it wouldn't happen until then. I was absolutely dreading it. This was the house I pretty much grew up in! I have so many memories in that house & it will be extremely difficult seeing someone else live there, since we'll be living nearby. We're still trying to sell the house though. So, yeah, that's what's happening in my life right now.
I'm sorry, but I'm not much of a writer, so this is all for now.

Who else hates the new LJ look?

I know I haven't posted anything, but I was just wondering: am I the only one who absolutely HATES the new LJ layout & finds it absolutely hideous? I'm just asking.
Because of certain circumstances, I am now limiting this journal to the Star Wars fandom (and corresponding fandoms (e.g., Life as a house, Higher Ground, etc)) & will eventually be creating a separate journal for Lord of the Rings (and corresponding fandoms (e.g., Pirates of the Caribbean, Troy, etc.)). I can not afford to have a Paid account. In addition, when I have the money, I will be changing my username for this journal. I will let you all know when these things happen! Thank you.

To those authors/ artists who were offended

Hi everyone I know that a lot of authors have either received or heard about me sending messages to them regarding their art and fanfiction stories & I wanted to say I am so so so sorry. I understand that you were offended by the questions I asked, so I wanted to apologize. It was never my intention to offend any of you. It's just that I find I don't get the chance to read so many amazing fics when people leave LJ (especially if their fics aren't on other sites) & it get's very frustrating sometimes (again please don't get at me- I'm just explaining my reason). This was the reason I asked the questions. I now understand that there is not a good enough excuse for what I did & I now understand that I handled this horribly & I sincerely wish I could turn back time so that I hadn't sent the messages in the first place. So, once again I apologize that I offended you & I hope that given time, you will forgive me & not hold my stupidness against me & that we may be able to become friends in the future. Please please please forgive me. I am so so sincerely incredibly sorry. Thank you.

First post

Hi everyone! Welcome to my journal related to the Star Wars fandom (both FPF & RPS). The first thing I want to say is that I don't write fanfiction and I'm not an artist. Sadly, I was never blessed with gifts for creative writing of creating art. What I do is read. And I DO comment on fics and art. I love Star Wars & Lord of the Rings fanfiction & fanart (both real-person and fake person fics & art). So, yeah, I won't be writing very much in this journal, just a warning. My OTPs are Anakin/ Obi-wan, Ewan/ Hayden & Aragorn/ Legolas & Orlando Bloom/ Viggo. Though, I do enjoy reading other pairings (especially Anakin/ Padme) as well! That's all for now. Later!

Edit: because of certain circumstances, my current plant is to limit this journal to the Star Wars fandom (and corresponding fandoms (e.g., Life as a house, Higher ground, etc)) & will eventually be creating a separate journal for Lord of the Rings (and corresponding fandoms (e.g., Pirates of the Caribbean, Troy, etc.)). Those this plan might change. I can not afford to have a Paid account. Also, when I have the money, I will be changing my username for this journal. I will let you all know when these things happen! Thank you.
