Getting Behind the Wheel

New video. Song is "Drive" by Incubus. Edit May 23, 2012: I have one version that I uploaded on my YouTube channel back in December, but this is cleaned up and much smoother. :

"Whatever tomorrow brings, I will be there, with open arms and open eyes."

This comes from a personal place.

DAMN YOU AUTO CORRECT!!!

This was too insanely funny not to share. Background: Last night I had been texting with two friends and making the most insane typos. Much of what I wrote was gibberish. At the time, I blamed it on the 3 glasses of wine I had with my Dad (call it a pre-surgery "celebration") - even though I was simultaneously posting on Facebook from my laptop just fine. (Yeah, had some time on my hands last night...)

This morning I discovered the REAL reason why my iphone's autocorrect was acting so obnoxiously.

Notice anything unusual, here? (Hint: I speak ENGLISH)




That little globe thing next to the space (espacio) bar switches the keyboard to spanish. How I did not notice this last night, I do not know. So, basically, my iphone was autocorrecting my english as spanish. But remember, I did not know this at the time.


So, here we go! Text convo screenshots, and the corresponding FB posts! (All real names have been edited)

Here's convo #1. Immy thought I was hammered, and I couldn't explain I wasn't! My phone was outta control!














Here's the conversation going on over on Facebook at the same time as the texting. Immy thought I was just making typos because of the wine! Nooooooo...







Immy went to sleep because, at 22, he's apparently become "old and prudish". So my aussie "Female Friend" and I got vabbly. "Vabbling" is a term my forum members came up for my chatty moments. Val + babbling. Get it?

"Female Friend" and I decided to have some fun with it, and just let the auto-correct do its job, without us correcting it back. I still didn't realize mine was in Spanish. As should be expected by now (see VRevis: Pornographer), my entrance was a memorable one. Kramer the "Assman" ain't got nothin' on me! [/Seinfeld reference] (Ha - blogspot reads html ">" as actual html...really? Seinfeld reference is an html command??) So while I spoke spanish gibberish throughout the conversation, my "Female Friend" posted random whacked-out fortune-cookie-type stuff.




























(To explain that last bit with the picture of my sheet, I accidentally took a pic of my sheet, somehow got stuck in MMS mode, and couldn't get back to the regular conversation. The only way I could get back was to send her the pic, which was very random of me, yes?)

The Facebook threads follow us along.













"I meef a translatoe!"

THE END. (...or is it? )

Sooooo...

I finally start playing and working with TS3, and discover I need to upgrade my RAM, because of random crashes due to "insufficient memory". Jeez. Luckily it's cheap to do so, but still, the system requirements of this game are ridiculous! I'm almost tempted to reinstall it on OS X because Windows is teh suxxorz, but then I saw the problems people were having with a Mac install. I guess I'll stick with the lesser of two evils and go with the RAM upgrade. Either way, it's unavoidable. I need MORE POWER. Without it, future EPs and videos will probably fry my logicboard. Been there, done that... under warranty. Applecare has officially expired. You see why the panic? (Oh yeah, I'm panicking. And I forgot how to spell "panicking". Spellcheck got me the first time. Ha - apparently "spell check" is two words. Got me again!)

For those who ask (and I get this a lot), "Why oh whyyyyyyy do you use Windows on a Mac?!": SHUDDUP.

(Seriously, it's because buying all my software for Mac would be about as much as buying a brand new MBP. So bootcamp it is! I use OS X for my general cyber needs.)

Frustrated, just venting. Wanna play. Can't. Waah.

In other news, I'm a first time aunt! My brother's wife had a baby girl on May 9. My niece is adorable. I'd show you pics, but

Just imagine a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally cute baby with LOTS of black hair! <3

And Another One!

I did not plan to do another video so soon, but somehow did...

My first "full" Sims 3 machinima. Hope you enjoy!

I'm back!

Hey all! I finally bit the bullet and did my first video using TS3. Of course, there's a twist... isn't there always? :-)
