Sticky Post of Super Stickyness!

I'm Izza, known on GOS, BPS, S2S and MTS as CuteLilDeadGirl.  Welcome to my simming journal!  If you like my stuff, please do comment.  I don't bite and I genuinely love hearing from my readers.

For those who are curious, I live in Australia, not too far from Melbourne.  I enjoy the company of four cats; Darcie, Alice, Alvin and Abby and a very hyperactive yellow labrador named Ziggy.  I also greatly enjoy the constant company of my best friend of 14 years and the official love of my life, Ben.  Though it may sometimes seem like simming is all I do, it's far from the truth.  I read constantly (and it's rarely pulp or anything seen on a bestseller list), I write almost as frequently (I've even been published in the past), I design and make accessories for myself and my friends and I love dancing, singing, movies, cooking and good conversation!  I hate television and almost never watch it.  I also hate talking on the phone.  Seriously.

Feel free to friend me if you like, but please don't be offended if I don't friend you back or failing that, later delete you if you never comment my journal.

Note on broken and missing pictures and images: Due to Imageshack now charging a fee for hosting more than 500 pictures, they are (or will be very soon) deleting all but 500 of my pictures.  I can't afford a paid picture hosting account and I'm not paying for something I've had for free until now.  There will be missing and broken images on this site until I can find alternative arrangements for the thousands of simming pictures I already have uploaded.  Please be patient.  All missing pictures will be re-uploaded in time.  Pictures attached to actual downloads will take priority.  If you notice an entry with missing pictures, please private message me with the URL of the entry and I will give replacement of those pictures a priority.

Note on anonymous comments and comment screening: Anonymous comments have been disabled due to increase in bots (again!)  I'm so very sorry to my readers who aren't registered LJ users, but it has become impossible to weed through the bot comments. Yup.  I don't like having to do it, but ridiculous bots are ridiculous and relentless.  Due to increasing spam I have also had to screen comments from unfriended LJ users.  If you're not spamming me, you have nothing to worry about and your questions/comments will be unscreened as soon as I log in/read them.

Note on contacting me outside of Livejournal: If you'd like to friend me on Facebook, be my guest.  However, I would recommend shooting me a message telling me who you are if you'd like to be added back.

Alive & Playing

I'm playing again, but unable to take more than one print screen per play session (my monitor blew up & the temporary replacement won't let me back in the game if I alt tab out ).  I have limited internet access on my phone, but no home internet.  I have creations both old and brand new waiting to be uploaded, but little opportunity to upload them.  Just wanted you all to know I miss you guys.  Being unable to access the community I love is the most frustrating thing of all...


I finished playing the Fennell boys through college today.  Here's a random screen of Geoff as an adult on his way to townie status...


Still Alive!

I know it's been too long... I can't afford home internet at this time and I don't foresee that changing anytime soon... However, I'm gonna throw up a random picspam from my game today via my phone.  Hope it works.  I'm trying to sort out a way to put up some of my creations ASAP too.  I miss you guys, and being a proper part of the community...


edit: App won't actually let me upload pictures.  Damn it!

Unavoidable Hiatus

Unfortunately, I have to take an unavoidable proper hiatus.  My simming computer's motherboard/CPU have been destroyed (thankyou very much to my boycat, Alvin, for pissing inside my computer's case....)  My graphics card and hard drives are unharmed, but I don't have a computer that I can plug any of those things in to and actually boot up.  So no simming.  Or even creating.  I currently have no financial ability to get this fixed and it's indeterminable how long it will take - I actually need to sell my car just to afford to fix the computer, which I'm hoping will be sold...

I'd also like to point out that I'm completely without internet access at home, as well as still having no real option to re-upload any previous dead links to simming pictures or medafire links if required (let alone the numerous, as yet to be uploaded creations I was hoping to share, which are all trapped on the hard drive I can't access until my computer is repaired)... Once again, even after getting my computer repaired, I'll have no way of uploading anything major until I can afford to sign up with a new ISP...

So... if a link to one of my downloads is missing and you have a copy and feel kind enough to re-upload on my behalf, feel free to post a link to any of that in the comments section of that download so everything is still as accessible as possible.

And finally.... it's been months since I had internet, and I've been avoiding simming altogether so you guys won't miss out on any of my storylines.  If I get my computer fixed, regardless of internet access, I will be playing my hoods again.  There might be updates, there might not.  Super important things like marriages, childbirth, etc will be documented and photographed, then uploaded later for sure.  But as with all legacies of a certain age, for the time being there's going to be lost information if I play/post until I actually have internet again at home...

I'm sorry to disappoint anybody.  I will be back and better than ever, but it's a financially difficult time for me right now and I simply can't keep this site regularly up and running until the computer and internet situation is all completely sorted out...

... the most annoying part of all this for me... I've spent the past three weeks rebuilding my townie name replacement mod.  It's not done yet (names lists ready, coding in progress), but it will be more than double the size of the current mod and I was very excited about it.  It will still be completed, but there... at least there is something for the simming future that I've been working on... I actually started work because due to lack of internet, I've missed out on signups for GOS Christmas In July... so yes, a bigger, better than ever name replacement mod is in the works and will eventually happen....

I miss simming!!  And you guys!!  Gah!!!  Feel free to contact me via Facebook.

Sadness in the community...

The passing of a friend is never easy.  Certainly I couldn't keep my eyes dry when I got up to read simsecret on Saturday morning and saw a message first up on my friends list (and with me, as probably with many of you who interacted with and cared about her, there was no interest on clicking on the simsecret link for this week). 

6akalaka1 aka Rosie was always lovely and kind to me, and to many of us in the simming community.  I would like to take a moment to say that she will be truly missed as a friend as well as a simmer.

My deepest condolences and sympathies to her family at this extremely difficult time.
