Desktop PoniesAs some of you may know, there's an adorable little program called 'Desktop Ponies' which gives you the ability to have ponies running all over your screen on your computer....Some even make sounds and interact with other ponies! You can even add your OCs to it as well! I've already added one of my OCs and it's so awesome seeing him interact and follow around the other ponies.Desktop Ponies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT (5/11):: The site is back up and running! Download Desktop Ponies here: http://www.desktopponies.com/
EDIT (5/12):: I zipped my program files and uploaded them to Sendspace....so maybe you can try to see if these work for you until the other site gets back in working order. http://www.sendspace.com/file/m2jfic
I added Chrysalis and some voices for her, Fancy Pants, Rarity, Mrs. Cake, Fleur, Braeburn and more!

New Year's Resolution -- the Glutton's PledgeWhile others may be pledging to lose weight, let us try to rise from our couches and beds and table chairs each day and repeat....New Year's Resolution -- the Glutton's Pledge2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Glutton's Pledge
I, __________, promise to eat all I want, of whatever I want, whenever I want.
I will eat when I'm sad to cheer myself up.
I will eat when I'm happy for the sheer joy of it.
I will learn to enjoy eating even when I'm full.
My belly will grow and proudly proclaim my devotion.
My appetite will become greedier, allowing me to eat even more.
I will rejoice when people criticize my weight, for they confirm my progress.
I will rejoice when people criticize my appetite, for they confirm my confidence.
I will gain and not be ashamed; on the contrary, I will feast in celebration.
I will eat joyfully and bear my new pounds cheerfully, so as to be an inspiration to others.
I will eat.
(If you want to become a glutton, say this pledge daily, and repeat it whenever you have difficulties)
For 2013, let us

It's not a birthday without RAAAMBLES.Heeeey folks.It's not a birthday without RAAAMBLES.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, thanks for all the birthday well-wishing. Veritable.. mountains of well-wishing. Though I'd be just as content postponing my birthday until next year. And then maybe the year after that, and after that..
A year older and a year wiser. Well, the latter is debatable. But definitely a year older! This year has been a wild, satisfying, disappointing, exciting one. It marks my first total year as a freelancer, which has been simultaneously one of the most liberating and terrifying career leaps I've ever made. Thankfully, the studio I've ended up working with for the entire year has been a very welcoming one. The workload can be immense, but outside of being paid, there are few rewards greater than seeing your work animated in a game after toiling on it for hours. Getting to visit Barcelona was another fantastic perk.
I really can't complain at all about work, this year. I've worked with the guys from Wayforward, Vigil, did a bit of here-and-there for my old stu
Make love handles, not war!With the passage of another Memorial Day . . . let's honor those who serve.Make love handles, not war!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Make love handles, not war!!
What we can all do to end the war in Afghanistan -- and wars everywhere -- is support a soldier boy or girl in getting too plump to any longer be fit enough for the service.
If you know someone who is in the service, once they get back in the states, or before they get a chance to go overseas again, make it your private mission to cook for them and feed them, fatten them up a little. Our husbands, our wives, parents, kids, friends and lovers do not deserve to die in a meaningless war.
Let's help them get nice and plump, so they can stay safe here at home.
In the 60s, the flowerchildren said, "Make love, not war!"
Now, we will shout, "Make love handles, not war!"
Already, the armed forces are having a difficult time recruiting, but if we can fatten up those who might wish to sign up, we can put an end to this useless war... Or at least, we can end the war for those we love tho
WJP's Top Ten Reader-Insert TipsSo, I kinda noticed these popping up everywhere a while ago, and (the Slowpoke/Slowbro I am) just had to post one. Appreciate the two hours of my life that I put into this.WJP's Top Ten Reader-Insert Tips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. First of all, have an idea! There's no point in writing if you don't know what you're going to write about, whether it's fanfiction, original fiction, etc. Trust me, I've had my share of stories that crashed and burned because I didn't plan it out. Now I'm not saying you need to write an entire plot diagram illustrating every little thing that happens, just something simple: a beginning, middle, and end. Your beginning should introduce your characters, the setting, the main conflict.&
Gluttony is really not a sin!So in many of the stories I write, I make gluttony out to be more than a little sinful.Gluttony is really not a sin!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And isn't that part of the fun of all this -- to enjoy the good feelings of being so ba-a-a-a-a-ad!
Many Christians, though, look down upon us gluttons as some children of the devil or something just too horrible to contemplate. This is nothing more than fat hatred -- and an inability to have fun or let others have fun.
Many will recount that gluttony is considered one of the "Seven Deadly Sins". In reality, though, I think gluttony is not a sin at all. In fact, it may be a virtue.
A few excerpts from an old article on gluttony as a sin (I have put my comments in parentheses):
According to a 1998 Purdue University study, obesity is associated with higher levels of religious participation. Broken down by creed, Southern Baptists have the highest body-mass index on average, Catholics are in the middle, and Jews and other non-Christians are the lowest. When t

The catch? The ticket is one-way. Their goal is to establish a settlement, not a resort.
So, if you're bat-sh*t mental and want to take part in "Operation Space-Grave", contact Mars One. I and all the other sane people will wave you off and divvy up the Terran luxuries you'll no longer be using.
Happy ending for a straySo the stray cattle dog named Tasha (see previous 2 journals) went home today just before noon.Happy ending for a stray2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As the owner approached her she was as skittish as ever, but then she began to stare, and came up to the door of the kennel. He opened the kennel and sat down and the dog crawled over and put her head in his lap.
By the time they left she was calmly standing up on him seeking attention, her tail went from tucked to relaxed, and she jumped right into the car as if she had done so only yesterday.
After 2 years of being missing, likely running feral, she remembered him.
A phone call hours later brought more good news.
His wife cried upon seeing the dog, so grateful to have her back.
Their toy poodle, whom Tasha grew up with, at first did not seem to know her but then it's tail began to wag and the little dog got all happy... the poodle remembered her!
Their new dog, a cattle dog mix they rescued long after Tasha went missing, seems to be doing well, not exactly friends but not enemies, which in

Let me draw your OC - And the winner is...Update 2: The results are in!Let me draw your OC - And the winner is...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I checked out all your submissions and in the end I couldn't decide between two OCs that I really liked. So I asked RatofDrawn for his opinion (without telling him my choices) and he came up with the exact same result!
So this is why there will be two winners for this little competition (ladies first):
:iconTawnyFox6512: and :iconRayhiros:
SorbetBerry's OC Brushfire excited both RatofDrawn and me with the stunning and beautiful color scheme. I really love the soft coat color and the fiery mane. I'm usually not a big fan of accessories, but her hairbands really give the whole design a nice touch.
Rayhiros provided me with 3 OCs to choose from and while all his designs appeal to my taste, Banana Split amazed me the most. The whole character seems so fitting. Ponies in clothes and with contrasting hair colors are a tricky thing but the vest and shirt really suit him and the hair looks
