I FRIEND AND KUDOS ACTUAL FRIENDS

Not to be rude, but I find the kudos-whores here to be really ...kind of creepy.

Not that they'll read this anyway either, I have an image of them in my head that they leap in, post and leap out getting ready for the next complete stranger to give them a "pat on the internet back".

Please stop spamming my profile page for kudos. I don't give out "hey, you're awesome" clicks to people that quite frankly don't deserve it. Stopping by, slapping a shitty glittery graphic on my page (that usually makes my artist sense wince in pain at its ugliness) and saying 'I gave you, now give me!' does not a kudos get you. I'm on Yuku for chatting - not for the race to see who can get the most clicks on their page. I don't care if I get them and I don't give them out unless like I said, you're a friend of mine and we actually speak to each other.

I also *gasp* don't friend people unless I know them from on my board or whatever, so if you do know me and request that we connect please let me know who you are. I'll refuse any other random 'HAY LETS BE FRIENDS" offers.

GAMING OMG

Fave games? I play mostly anything but war games (and even then I make an exception for the genius that is Metal Gear). Yep, I'm female and I play games. Sorry though. I'm already married. Plus you wouldn't want me anyway, I don't look like a Barbie doll. If you want gamer chicks, guys - keep that in mind. The ones that like what you like won't look like models. The ones that look like models like shoes, purses and makeup. See where I'm going with this...?

Fave game: Silent Hill 2
Current Obsession: Ghostbusters

xBox 360: airlobster
PSN: Elly-Sketchit

image I usually have the name "Elly Sketchit" in some form or another on gaming sites and such. If I didn't choose to have it or couldn't for some weird reason I chose "sanjisangel" or, more recently "airlobster".

80s Chick

That's right - I'm an 80's chick and proud. I am a child of the eighties. The nineties can do without me. Grunge isn't here to stay, fashion is fickle and "Generation X" is a myth created by some over-40 writer trying to figure out why people wear flannel in the summer.

When I got home from school, I played with my Atari 2600 (I actually had a Vic 20 before that)! I spent hours playing Pitfall or Pike's Peak or Omega Race (which I never beat but loved the music from). Then I watched "Scooby-Doo." I thought Shaggy was cute. I always wanted them to play the Three Stooges episode of "celebrity Scooby Doo". I hated Scrappy.

I got up on Saturday mornings at 6 a.m. to watch bad Hanna-Barbera cartoons like "Snorks," "Jabberjaw," "Captain Caveman," and "Space Ghost." In between I would watch "School House Rock." ("Conjunction junction, what's your function?")

Ronald Reagan was cool, I loved him. Gorbachev was the guy who built a McDonalds in Moscow. My family took summer vacations to the Gulf of Mexico and collected "The Great Muppet Caper" glasses along the way. (We had the whole set as well as the Peanuts ones).

I listened to John COUGAR Mellencamp sing about Little Pink Houses for Jack and Diane. I was bewildered by Boy George and the colors of his dreams, red, gold, and green. MTV played videos. Nickelodeon played "You Can't Do That on Television" and "Dangermouse."

I went to school and had recess. I went to the same classes everyday.

Recycling? What was that? We just threw everything out in the same trash can!

I watched Ghostbusters when it came out in theaters for the first time and was a fan from day one. I also saw E.T. and cried at the ending.

Field day was bigger than Christmas, but it always managed to rain just enough to make everybody miserable before they fell over in the three-legged race. Where did all those panty hose come from? "Deck the Halls with Gasoline, fa la la la la la la la la," was just a song.

The world stopped when the Challenger exploded. Did a teacher come in and tell your class?

Half of your friends' parents got divorced.

People did not just say no to drugs.

AIDS started, but you knew more people who had a grandparent die from cancer.

Somebody in your school died before they graduated.

When you put all this stuff together, you have my childhood. If this stuff sounds familiar, then I bet you are one, too.

Stupid Cat

Elly Sketchit is basically the dumb artist Michelle Taylor, sanjisangel on a few other forums, sometimes simply "stupid cat" to her husband. Elly's the name of a character from one of my novels, and I identify with her because she's been with me a great deal of my life and I've put a lot of effort into her existence.

I call my husband "Zoro", as in the ONE PIECE character of the same name (Roronoa Zoro). This started out because he doesn't like his real name to be spoken over the internet, his real name is as close to Zoro as you can get and also on the Anime Estrogen Brigade right here on Yuku we had too many guys with the same name he had. This all caused confusion until I started calling him "Zoro", so what the hell. He's also on Yuku but we don't give his handle out.

*shrugs*

I now have a lovely dash of menopause to spice up my life and make me snap more than ever. You might see me as a bitch. I'm not - but I won't think you are, either, if you snap at me or try and make me 'mad' for fun. Foolish, certainly, but after my anger is past I'm through with it. This is because hate is a sterile and ridiculous emotion. There's better things to waste our time on than "hate" someone on the internet.

I don't feed trolls and flamers. I ignore them, so don't waste time trying to provoke someone who doesn't give a shit. I'm housebound, I have low blood pressure disease, I faint up to 2 times a day and I've been through hell and back. A little rat trying to "hate" me because I like something they don't or draw better than them isn't going to cause me any pain. And shame on you for trying to hurt someone - anyone -- anyway.

Good Lord People!

Glitter graphics. No.

Please. I beg of you.

Don't jump in and spam my page here with a giant image of Ziggy or a fruit or some female silhouette or god knows what saying something oh-so-witty about Mondays sucking /Fridays being great or how you "just stopped by to say HI". You can type that, right? Also, I'm not a collector. I don't believe in getting all the "page hits" and "kudos" just because I can. I'm glad you found something you like to do, but I won't give you pagehits and kudos back if I have no idea who the bloody hell you are and you've just slapped me in the face with the most annoying graphic ever. As an artist I find those tacky glitter graphics make me want to throw up. I got over the sentiments around the time I left Elementary School and those awful posters they hung everywhere too.

I'm not such a bitch, really, but it's just worthless to try and get "free clicks" from me because unless you're my friend or you actually try to be by posting on my forums, I won't bother.
It's not me being a terrible meanie person, it's just that I'm here on Yuku to BE ON MY FORUMS. I am not here to collect clicks or fawn over strangers.
