Where is everyone?
last modified: Tuesday, August 29, 2006 (10:58:50 PM)
It seems Beta and RS have been kind of dead lately. Where is everyone? What's everyone doing? I know people have lives which extend beyond cels and I'm curious to know what everyone has been up to lately. People don't seem to blog as often, even updates are slow.

Personally, I've been without a scanner due to the move. I now have scanner access but still too busy to sit down and take the time to scan cels for new updates. I'd like to get back into a regular updating routine but it won't be for some time.

School has started for some folks, which might explain the slow down. So, where have you been? What have you been up to? If you haven't been buying cels, what have you been spending your money on?

Lately I've been revisiting some neglected hobbies, such as video games and gashapon. I've also had to spend money on household items. We recently purchased a Dyson vacuum cleaner, which was $500+ for the basic model but it's well worth the investment. They work wonderfully and never need bags or filters. Fantastic machine!

I almost forgot! This weekend is Anime Fest, woooo! Anyone else going? =)

I hope this blog inspires others to get active again. http://welcomeconsumer.com

I''ve been off spending time living in the made-up world inside my head. (Otherwise known as "writing". >.<) I added a few Saiyuki things recently, and I have a couple of new NW cels on the way ... as well as a really pretty Orphen cel, thanks to DuoTrouble (hugs DT), and a few things from YJ -- although it''ll be a while before I see those in person. Mostly, though, I''ve been too broke to buy all that much. Oh! I''m redoing the gallery on my main website, though. Been working on that for a bit over a month now ... no end in sight any time soon. I hope the changes will be worth the effort, in the end. *sigh* Good to hear you''re doing well! *hugs*

I would guess that since the for sale / offers blogs are gone it just seems that the blogs have slowed down.

JWR might have a point .

And if the chaos at Staples today was any indication, there are a lot of borderline psychotic parents running around. Some of them must be in otaku-dom!

I don''t see much slow down in updating, though, although folks do seem to doing them in smaller increments. Since I''ve been doing my cels in "clumps", I get to see how fast my banner gets shoved off the main page. Doesn''t take too long at all!

You probably already know, I''m busy moving.
My Celga stuff came in finally, and my OMGNaked Ichigo from Crystal, but it''ll be a while before I get time to scan anything in. Soon, that scanner will be packed up. ><
My last bit of money went to the Ichigo doll and his adoreable accessories. XD
Anyway, I''m lurking, money''s going to the move, and I hope to be back in a month or so. ^_^

Well, I was in the world of the computerless for a few months when my computer decided to go haywire. Now that its back, I''m back in school.

I was wondering how many people are taking an end of summer vacation too.

i''ve been busy with classes, ''homework'', and working [in addtion to helping out around the house with my sis]. i visit RS; but, I usually don''t have time to visit the chatroom :( on the brighter side, i do have some new cels coming my way :D and I just have to arrange some time to prepare for an update. More importantly, I am glad your doing well and I hope I can see you soon :) *hugs*

I''ve been sick and also school started for me again. But I''m a lurker anyway so nothing new for me not being around. ^^;;

I just can''t find much that I want online anymore on cels or sketches. So I did buy more on clothing lately and pay college out of pocket myself.

I''m a nomad at the moment, wondering from house to house as I stay with family members, but whenever I get the chance to be online I''m stuck with slow dialup connection. So I never know when I''ll have a chance to get online.

I love ya Toni! XD

i''ve been looking for work, mending a broken heart, paying off my cc bills... i hope to do that soon. if i can control my sudden need for designer clothes. BAH!

I guess it has been fairly quiet but that''s good; We''ve had the opportunity to do other things without missing out on what''s happening in the cel world ^__^

I religiously check YJ/Mandarake cel listings for a couple of hours every day and visit Beta most days. It depends what mood I''m in.
I''ve been drained from work in recent months so it''s easy to sit in front of the computer and do little else; that includes chat and gallery updating.

Other hobbies are important to me- pornography, music and movies and I''ve been playing Guitar Hero on PS2 a lot too. This all eats up time and energy.

I''m around and always at the end of an email ;)

re: Where is everyone?Thursday, August 31, 2006 - 12:46:57 PM

It''s cool to know what other people are up to! Lots of gamers, I see.

Yay kittens and pornography! O.o; hehe :P

re: Where is everyone?Thursday, August 31, 2006 - 7:17:24 PM

School (stupid overpriced college books!) - lack of money - nothing has caught my eye lately ;)

re: Where is everyone?Friday, September 01, 2006 - 12:33:12 AM

Well, you commented to my thread on beta so I think you know what I''ve been up to. I just bought a car. I just sold a car. I just got a new bed. Yup! Real life stuff has taken over for a bit. Oh, and there''s that pesky bit about interviews at work wearing me down. Can''t wait until those are all over! >_< But I hope to find some time soon to update from my newest package. I should run to the post office for TC too. ~_^

Busy . . . busy . . . I guess is my answer. ^_^
