Long Time No Post

Well, I finally got rid of my old website. I just couldn't handle all the spam comments I got on a daily basis. I might have some of my posts saved to my computer. If so, then I will put them into this blog.

In the meantime, I am going to try to become active in blogging again. I can't promise anything. I had gotten so discouraged by the spam, that I had completely given up.

Last Post on Blogger

Ok. I have decided that I really don't like Blogger that much. You are really limited to what you can do with it. I have heard a lot of great things about WordPress. So I am heading over there. I already have a domain set up. I will be importing all of my previous posts so you won't miss anything. The only thing left to do over there is set up the way it looks. I don't have the time right now to do that since I have to leave for work. I will play with that once I get home.

The new domain is www.wakela.com. A nice easy one to remember. I hope you will all still read me over on that site.

Sleuth part duex

Woohoo!  I finally figured out my password for my old character.  Its not one I normally use.  At least I can get back in and play on Wakela again.  I also have the one I just created the other day.  Her name is Sankara.  So if anyone of you feel so inclined, feel free to message me in game.

Unfortunately, since I had been gone for several months, the agency I was in, Ona Mission, had to boot me out to make way for new people.  Agencies can only have so many people in them depending on their level.  I just sent a message to one of the officers.  Or so I thought.  I had noticed that Stooby had sent me a message.  I answered him back finally.  Well when I did a little snooping around, I found out that he and a few others from Ona are now in a new agency.  He is one of the directors.  I am not sure how or why this happened.  Oh well! 

I am sure that I will eventually join another agency.

An oldie from the past

I just came across an old game that I used to play ages ago.  It was a lot of fun.  However, with everything that was going on in my life, I didn't have time to play games.  So I had stopped playing it and forgot all about it.

The game is called Sleuth.  Its a free online game.  Its a basic murder mystery game.  You create a detective that you get to play through all of your cases.  While creating your detective, you get to choose your detective's background.  The background is what you were before you became a detective.  The game is set in the detective noir era.  It is all text based with a few pictures added for flavor. 

The game itself is free, however you can get a subscription to it.  I had one on my previous character.  I can't remember the password for that one though.  smile_embaressed  So I had to create a whole new character.  If you play for free, you get to play 4 cases per day and only stay in New York.  If you decide to get the subscription, then you get 12 cases per day and you can participate in special cases.  Plus you can travel to several other countries.  You can also join a detective agency.  They can help on cases that you are stuck on.

I did also find a great little helper for solving cases.  The cases in the first few tiers are relatively easy.  So I was able to solve them without much difficulty.  However, as you progress, the cases get increasingly difficult.  I found myself with scratch papers all over the place taking notes and trying to figure it out.  There is a website that makes life easier for the game.  Its called Doctor Watson.  If you decide to check out the game, I highly suggest using Doctor Watson too.

Well, I am off to solve a few cases. 

Payday Loans

Christmas is fast approaching.  I don't know about anyone else this year, but it just seems that money is tight.  I was thinking about ways to get some money to buy presents from Payday loans.

This site has intrigued me for awhile.  I am going to give it a try.  Basically it is a loan that gets paid back on your next payday.  They loan you anywhere from $100 to $1500.  On the day that the money is due to them, you have a few choices.

  • you can pay it back in full
  • renew the loan and pay interest and fees only
  • renew the loan, pay interest and fees, and pay part of the money back
  • do nothing and let it roll over until next pay period

The application process is really simple.  I completed it in just a few minutes.  The interest is 15%.   The money even gets direct deposited into your checking account the next business day.

I am giving it a try.  I need the extra cash.

Today wasn't too bad.  We could have gotten out at a great time, but MRI was pretty far behind.  She didn't take the 6:20pm patient back until 7:15pm.  So that didn't let us leave until shortly after 8pm. 

The patients were all rather nice today.  Usually we get at least a few crabby ones.  Not today though.  I am so glad, I was really not in the mood to deal with anything. 

Dr. H had made a point of coming up to the front desk to ask how I was feeling.  He had read my CT from the other day.  I told him that I was still hurting and feeling crappy.  I made a point of eating soup yesterday to help ease up on my intestines.  I figured that if I ate soup, it would be easier to digest.

Time to head home.  I can't wait!  I got the invite to beta Pirates of the Burning Sea finally.  Now I have to patch it.  I had played a bit during the server load test.  However, I really couldn't stay connected because of the lag.  Hopefully, it will be better now since it is open beta.  I just wished I could have gotten in on the closed beta.  Oh well!  There are still more games out there to apply for.

Dear Demon Barber Confessional

visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site

When I first heard months ago that they were remaking Sweeney Todd I was excited. Once I found out that it was being done by Tim Burton, I was in awe. I can't wait for this movie to be released.

For those of you who don't know the history of this movie, it was first released in theaters in 1936. Yes, you read that right. However, that was not the first appearance of Sweeney Todd. There were stories written about him in the late 1800s. There are some arguments as to whether or not Sweeney Todd actually existed. In the late 70s and early 80s, Sweeney Todd was released as a musical starring Angela Lansbury.

First off, the movie stars Johnny Depp. Can we say yummy? He is a great actor and really gets into character. I can't wait to see him as the great Demon Barber himself!

Then we have Mrs. Lovett being portrayed by Helena Bonham Carter. She is a pretty good actress. I just keep picturing her as Bellatrix Lestrange though.

Finally, we have Alan Rickman as Judge Turpin. He is an awesome actor. I know he is going to totally rock that part.

They have even created a MySpace for the movie. If you have MySpace head on over and visit Sweeney Todd on MySpace.

In addition to that, they have a website has a Demon Barber Confessional going on. You can head on over to the site to confess your dastardly deeds or you can go ahead and start confessing right here.

I guess I will start with a dastardly dead that I had done. When I was in 5th grade, all the kids on the block used to hang out together outside. There was a little 4 year old girl who kept trying to hang out with us. I still remember her name, Lisa. We used to get really annoyed. We didn't want a little kid hanging out with us. We used to taunt her horrendously. One day, she kept following us around. A bunch of us ran over to a lemon tree at a neighbor's house. We picked lemons and started throwing them at her. Even though I normally have extremely bad aim, I managed to hit her in an eye with a lemon that was split open. I still feel bad to this day about it. I didn't want to hurt her, I just didn't want her following us around.

Ok, what do you have to confess to?

I do have to admit that even though this ended up being a PayPerPost, I had still planned on blogging about this movie. I just came upon the opportunity to get paid for it before I had the chance to finish the post.

Another day, another dollar (or is that penny?)

It's almost time for me to go to work.  I am really not looking forward to going.  Thankfully, this week has been really slow.  Hopefully, today won't be any different.  I just can't wait for the weekend.  I am feeling crappy still and I just want to chill at home.

I ended up going to the doctor yesterday.  He sent me to have a stat CT of the abdomen and pelvis.  He thought that it might be appendicitis.  Thankfully, it wasn't!!  It looks  like I just have some sort of stomach virus that is affecting me worse because of my IBS.



I had signed up for this ages ago. Since I didn't get approved within the first day, my airheadedness took over and I forgot to check back. Gmail had eaten my approval email.

So I wandered over to Gellianne's blog today and noticed that she had signed up and was accepted. Woohoo! I was very happy for her. Then I remembered that I had signed up some time ago. I decided to wander over to see if I had been accepted. I was accepted ages ago.

They have tons of wonderful offers that you can blog about. I was saddened that the one I would have really been great on was already full. Oh well! I will definitely keep checking back to see what wonderful offers they have.

I know that we could all use a little extra money. So why not earn it while doing something that you love. I know I could use it to pay some bills or to buy some more computer games.

One of the things that I like is the fact that they have this whole section that they label "The Lab" (makes it sound like mad scientists)! At the lab, you can find all different types of things that are in development. There are even widgets and plug-ins that users have created.

Also in The Lab is a listing of affiliate sites that they run. They have this interesting affiliate named Blog in Space. This site actually beams your blog feed into space. Definitely strange.

I highly suggest checking PayPerPost out.
