LiveJournal Party Update

Yes, I know this is long overdue.  However, this update was hinging on a number of things... and I finally have all the details I need.  So... here's the official word on when and where.  There is a LiveJournal party today (Saturday, January 31, 2004)... but it will be starting early, at 2:00pm.  We'll be meeting by the Dance Dance Revolution EXTREME machine on the third floor of the Metreon.  There won't be any sort of silly lil' DDR tournament, as I have no money to give away... and invite codes are worthless as prizes now, too.  *grin*  Anyhow... we'll vote on a movie after waiting for people for a while, then go buy tickets, then get food.  The party will be ending early, at 7:00pm... why, you ask?  I have somewhere else I need to be, and I wanted to get people together anyway.  Yes, this means no Karaoke... at least officially.  I should be free around midnight for that, though... so give me a call if you're interested, and perhaps we can get a group together.  :)

Since this is kind'a not the way I wanted to throw a party, I'll be throwing another one on February 13th and 14th... and this one will be much larger, as well as longer.  (Larger?  Longer?  Wait, what am I talking about again?  *wink*)  I'm planning on taking that Friday off work, so that we can extend the party through Saturday... and I'll be allowing people to party and crash at my place that night.  Yup... singles unite!!!  I'll have Beatmania IIDX 6th Style (along with my official Konami IIDX controller), alcohol, and lots of other fun stuff.  You can all hopefully meet my cool new roommate, his kickass CD DJ system, and the three ferrets we live with too!  Details to follow, but at least you know what I've been planning... finally!  I understand if you guys don't feel like attending the party today, as it'll be small and informal... but if you're bored, call me up or drop by.  I'll bring snacks as usual.  We'll keep this one small, and brainstorm for the big one.  Cool?  Cool.  ^_^

By the way... what do you guys think of the new layout?  I've still got lots of tweaking to do on it, but I hope you enjoy it for now!

- Chris (cK1)

Of course, I can't come to the party, but say hello to everyone for me... including your roommate and the ferrets! Every time I think about the ferrets now, I think of Peach Fuzz... and vice versa. My friends bought the Rising Stars of Manga book, so I got to read Lindsey's comic. :)

Very nice layout, BTW. I like the different shades of gray, but you might want to do something about the text fields, as 128-gray makes the text cursor and placeholder basically disappear, as they're supposed to be colored inversely - and the inverse of 128-gray is itself. Maybe just keep the text fields white and black...

lol i concur, although the new one does have a slight appeal to it ^__^

I might be able to whisk her away some time in February... XD

I hope the tweaking includes the fact that comments appear in a very small margin, and when I comment your ENTRY appears in that same small margin of text. It's very odd. If it doesn't occur on your computer/browser, I can take a screenshot.

Oh, man.. I've committed an anime showing in Sacramento (I'm finding out about this LJ gathering in the wee hours, when I should be sleeping... heh) - In any case, I'll be looking forward to the gathering. I work until late on Friday the 13th (No, I'm not superstitious with 13, just with bad karma and computers.), but all day Saturday the 14th works, since that'll lead into a gathering at the Great Mall on Sunday the 15th... Things are going into high gear with the advent of a new con season.

I'll stay tuned, and try to rest in the meantime.

I like the new layout. Opal is a nice style. :]

Also, ferrets! Eee! :D

Can't do it. Waaaay too short notice, and I already made plans.

Your layout? Well, it's very....grey.
I like the boxy-ness though!
Jan. 31st, 2004 07:42 am (UTC)
^_^ Wow I'm going to actually be able to make this one! Although I can only stay an hour due to Aikido Class. :) Can't make it to the Valentine's Day one ^_^; am flying out to Seattle to be with my man that Friday.

Hey, the shades of grey look pretty good ^_^ I can't see the cursor when I'm writing this so it's kind of weird. Once again, jealous that I cannot make it to your parties ^^; Hope everything is well ::huggle:: ttyl
Jan. 31st, 2004 08:13 am (UTC)

Re: LiveJournal Party Update

I kept my datebook open for this just in case it was official. :) I'll be there. :)</font>
Jan. 31st, 2004 10:11 am (UTC)

E-mail me sometime!

I like your new layout better. Then again, I like darker colors. But it doesn't really matter what I think, does it?
Jan. 31st, 2004 10:35 am (UTC)
hey! Feb. 13's my birthday! :D
Jan. 31st, 2004 11:51 am (UTC)
The side bar to skip to an entry is cool :x
Feb. 1st, 2004 09:44 am (UTC)
I love the layout honey. I miss you deeply. I hope you are well. One day I hope to attend one of these parties of yours ;)
Feb. 1st, 2004 12:34 pm (UTC)
I like the new layout! I've always been a fan of grey/black for designs though... if people don't like the blase feel of this though.. I think a little orange on this grey might look good :P Ah don't listen to me. Anyway, sorry I missed the par-tay, I was out w/ Annie. Maybe I'll be able to come to the 13/14th one :) See ya 'round, Chris.

ps: Jeffrey is right about the cursor thing- when typing comments you can't really see it, so it's hard to edit things you've written w/out counting how many times you've pressed back :)
Feb. 1st, 2004 05:38 pm (UTC)
i guess i'll be there.
Thankyou chris....
Everytime i'm usually with other people i'm really not as happy as i am with the LJ group... I feel like i belong XP.
Anyways yeah i miss you guys too so most definately i'll come.

It's got a nice metallic feel, but it kind of clashes with my text highlight cursor. Oh well; I can get used to it.

Sorry I don't leave comments often. We each have our own styles, and my own is to be sort of quiet often. But I read most entries that I see my friends make, so don't think your posts are going unnoticed by one among a huge army of your friends. ;)
Feb. 1st, 2004 10:41 pm (UTC)
You know I'm gonna be there.

Re: Layout
Nice refreshing look. To tell you honestly, the blue background with the white text "hurted" my eyes from staring at it too long. That's why I prefer reading your entries from my Friends' list entries. :)
Feb. 2nd, 2004 11:06 am (UTC)
Yay! I wanna come! Can I crash at the crib? woohoo!
Feb. 2nd, 2004 03:39 pm (UTC)
Ooh! I really like the layout :) Very well organized and easy to read :) I really do like it a lot! :D
