Badges, Facebook Integration and Tweaks

I really ought to be asleep at this time of night. But hey, what can I say? My insomnia has stuck yet again. I'm physically worn out but my mind's way too high on adrenaline, unceasingly rushing in its restless state. Oh brain, why won't you let me sleep?

Anyway, since I'm still up, I might as well go through the minor tweaks I've done on my blog.

Today, I've registered my blog on two blog directory sites, Blog Catalog and Top Blogs, and I'm still awaiting confirmation. Also, I've signed up for Nuffnang and am now being paid for every unique visitor I manage to get. I think. I don't really know how it works, to be honest. LOL. Well, that was a definite fail.

These registrations are the reason as to why I now have awesome badges up. I've always longed to get some and now that I have, you can only imagine how pleased I am with myself. Haha.

Besides the obvious loading panel thing I've set up, I had forced myself though the horrendously tedious process of integrating my blog with Facebook. Notice how I now have like buttons and Facebook comment plugins? I'll go over in detail what I did to accomplish this some other time.

I was at war with myself about the comments. Should I rely on the Facebook comment plugin entirely or should I utilize both the Facebook comment system and the Blogger comement system? What do you think?

Well, we'll have enough of that.

I chatted with Aaron earlier this evening and him worrying about looking good for prom motivated me enough to edit my face on my dream body. LOL. I did his too. I had them up but naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw. I quite frankly would rather not have anyone else see them. They're too ridiculous for the internet. Haha.

We're such bored people. Anyway, I should get going. Unlike my brother and all other fortunate highschool and gradeschool students of Ateneo, I have class later; all us college students do. Life's but fair, I say.

I've edited some of my scans last month and, even now, it still amazed me how lovely I think they turned out.

I'll be coloring Martin's drawing next.
I often wish my course was equally as fun as this.
Contrary to programming, I could actually stand to do this for a living.

I'm a Hufflepuff

I am AshHorn44 and I am a Hufflepuff.
You can't get any better than that.
No, actually, you most certainly can. Haha.
I should have been in Gryffindor.

Oh, sorting hat, dear sorting hat, you think you know everything.
I'm afraid you've made a grave mistake about this one; about me.

Aaron's in Gryffindor.
Daniella's in Gryffindor.
Mark's in Ravenclaw.
Jessie's in Ravenclaw.
Clydie is, most likely, in Ravenclaw as well.
And I'm in Hufflepuff. |:

In any bizarre case you're not a Harry Potter fan, for reasons I would never understand, please allow me to bore you as I rattle on about Hogwarts' business, you incompetent muggle.

Haha, only joking. Muggles are love. Sort of. LOL. Them ordinary folk, pshaw. Hahaha.

Hufflepuff is currently the house with the most number of members but even so, we remain to have the least amount of points.
And to think having the largest population amongst the other three should come as an advantage, but noooo. Hufflepuff houses people of too little care to even give the slightest snot about even winning this thing. Fishsticks. |:
We're done for, I tell you. DONEEEE FOR.

Anyway, moving on along now.
I've come to accept the inevitable; we positively won't be winning any house cups soon. Maybe when the Wizard's Duel feature is up and running again, things will get better.
There is hope for us yet. :D

Haha, look at me making such a fuss over Pottermore.
Quaintly endearing, isn't it? HAHAHA.

I'd brew potions to help earn house points but it just takes too long to make them; up to almost two, almost three hours even. I'm sorry Rowling, but I have my life to live. LOL.

I can't wait till they're done with the second book.
Take it from me, Pottermore is quite the experience. It's Harry Potter like you've never seen before.

If you have an early access account, I'm AshThorn44, let's be friends! :D
If not then, let's be friends all the same. Haha.

Pottermore will be taking in regular registrations some time in October.
For those who haven't accounts yet, see you then! :D
