(meh, terribly sorry for the delay on the rating)

Layout: Is it just me or has bright pink become a big trend lately? Well, everything matches quite well, and I love the flamingo images on the side. Your icon rather distracts me, I must note, nor does it really match anything. But I'll get back to that later. Hmm, the bottom scrollbar bothers me a bit, it doesn't seem necessary. But I must say that I like the thick dotted border. Such borders are often misused by people, but I think it fits in with your layout very well. Only thing is, you've got a paid account, and yet your layout is mainly very default-ish. While I do like it, I think you could make something even better with paid priveledges 7/10

Entries: Hmm, well I'm not on your friends list, so I suppose that I can't see your main entries. That leaves me with relatively little to grade. You're got quite a few surveys and quizzes, which always adds variety. And you make good use of lj cuts. Well, from what i can see though, your spelling and grammar looks fine. 4/10

Icons: Hmm, with a paid account you could have lots and lots of icons there. But then again, I wonder if people with tons of icons actually use them all... So four's quite enough. Anyway, your icons don't really match your layout at all. The closest would me the semiblonde one, and only due to its colour. Other than that, they're nice ones. I like your default one, and the nameless one of the purple-haired dude (sorry, i'm anime-illiterate). 6/10

User Info: More pink :) I like that you've got it in a nice table though, its boring seeing regular shapeless info pages... Well, what you've got there gives me a nice abstract picture of you. I think it could be more detailed though 7/10

Mood Theme: You don't have one. At least not in the entries you've left open. Sorry, I must grade accordingly. 0/10

Layout: Nice. Its simple, and clean. I think that the header scares me…7/10

Entries: I nearly cried in your latest entry. It was so sad! Sadly, I’m so pathetic that I hold onto my pillow and cry about someone I’ve never met and is dead, and a ship that I was never on. You don’t have my pathetic-ness. You are allowed to cry about a lost love.10/10

Icons: All spots filled, and what seems to be a general theme.10/10

User Info: Rather informative, very decorative. I love it.10/10

Mood Theme: It fits the layout. I like it. 9/10

(Terribly sorry that it's taken so long. I blame society ;)

Layout: There's a very light, airy feel to your layout. Err, no pun intended. Its mainly very simple and default, but looks generally nice. Everything matches well, except your icon rather stands out. Which, I must say, is a bit distracting. But I'll get back to that later. Anyhow, I love the image you've got on the side. The scribbly writing is very pretty, even though i have no idea what it says. The main thing that somewhat bothers me is that the entry boxes look a bit unbalanced and overpower the image. I think it'd look better if you were to make the box a bit smaller, and move it farther from the left edge, so that there'd be an equal amount of space from the edge to the entry box, as there is from the entry box to the edge of the image on the right. 7/10

Entries: I love the way you write. I found your entries quite interesting, and had a ton of fun reading them. lol, I think you won me over when you put Victor Hugo as one of the answers to a survey question "How often do you get so immersed in stories and reading that your emotions get meshed with that of the characters?" (heh, I'm a big Hugo fan...). Anyhow, I'm impressed. 10/10

Icons: Well, you've only used two slots, but I like the sketches. Well, personally I like the vega one better than your defaults. The only thing is, they don't match your layout in colour. As a matter of fact, the default is rather distracting amoung your layout. I think they'd look lovely if you tweaked the colours to match the layout. 5/10

User Info: Very poetic. Though I still think you could add a bit more to it. But the abstract descriptions are very creative, gives me a good idea of who you are. 6/10

Mood Theme: Hmm, to be honest, I don't like it. It doesn't match your layout much, other that by its simplicity. 5/10

(By the way, I looked at some of your drawings from the link in your info, and I must say they're quite spiffy :)

Layout: The repeating background is the first thing that I notice, and frankly its a bit appalling for a first impression. The picture's not bad, but it is just ruined by the fact that it repeats. Otherwise, the style is mainly a default disjointed, but looks nice and neat. The colours match very nicely. 6/10

Entries: Now your entries are really quite interesting. I enjoyed reading them, I admit. I see nothing wrong with your spelling and grammar. I salute the fact that you use so many lj cuts, they make stuff awfully convenient. And btw, I share a lot of those political beliefs. Go France! 10/10

Icons: Well you've used up all three slots, which is spiffy. And you've used yourself in all of those icons, that's good too. But really the pictures themselves aren't that eye-catching. They don't really match your layout either. Perhaps you should make them brighter or more contrasted or something. 6/10

User Info: Well there really isn't that much, yet it does say quite a bit. Sorta. Isn't it odd how sometimes people can write a whole lot and yet it still wouldn't be very informative at all, and some can do the opposite? You could always add more though. 5/10

Mood Theme: It actually fits very well. Matches all of the colours you've used almost perfectly. 7/10
