Who. Knew!

June 30th, 2008 | Tags:

Well, besides people who LIVE in the UK… I mean, I just found out because I was reading on wiki about who different characters on Doctor Who are… is… whatever.

Anyone really REALLY love me and want to be Oh so kind and buy me this?? Yeah… I didn’t think so. *sigh*

The Purpose

June 30th, 2008 | Tags: ,

I didn’t realize that my purpose in life was to make other people feel better about themselves. I didn’t realize that my SOLE purpose in life was to run around kissing other people’s bums so that they could continue to skate through life on the curtails of those who actually use our intelligence and brains in an attempt to get somewhere in life. Whoops! I guess I missed that memo.

Sorry to interrupt your normally schedule program, but there’s a Newsflash!

Ooooohhhhh! That’s right. It’s not my purpose in life.

Some Changes

June 29th, 2008 | Tags:

As I play around with the site, layout-wise, anyone who tends to come here to read will see the slight changes. I guess I already wanted a change. Really, I wanted to have two sidebars. And the purple-y thing just wasn’t made that way. Sadly, cause I loved it. AND I’m far too lazy to try to modify it. At least right now.

So, this is it. I’m gonna fill that big X box up there with something soon. Probably tomorrow when I get home from work or something. But for now, it stays that ugly gaudy mess. Ha!

Tangents

June 24th, 2008 | Tags: , ,

I spent the better portion of the late night on the phone with the boy last night, and it was fun conversation. I keep expecting that day when we run out of things to talk about. I hope that it doesn’t happen, but there are few people in my life that I can talk to on a regular basis and not run out of things to talk about. I try hard not to mention the fact that I’ve heard people’s stories again and again (and sometimes again). I let them feel as though they have something important to say, because at times they really do. But the BFF and the boy seem to be a handful of the only people with whom I can talk to for hours and hours and never run out of things to talk about.

What I adore most about the boy is that he listens to me despite the fact that I go off on tangents about things that he not only has no knowledge of, but has no interest in. We don’t have to share all things, but we should be supportive of each other and our endeavors, right? I don’t always care about what he’s telling me, but I DO care about the fact that he is telling me.

The other night, when I met his family, I heard Elton John’s “Guess That’s Why They Call it the Blues” play in through the speakers of Black Angus. This is one of those songs I love. Not like… LOVE! Over the weekend, I went in search of a download for the song. Today, I decided to make a playlist, of just that song. And I danced around the storeroom at work mouthing the words and singing in my head.

I’ve heard the song a thousand times over the years, and the only part I ever knew was the title line. But the song, and it’s lyrics, are amazing.

“… But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

And I guess that’s why
They call it the blues
Time on my hands
Could be time spent with you
Laughing like children
Living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that’s why
They call it the blues”

After all is said and done…

June 23rd, 2008 | Tags: , ,

So… I’ve been doing a lot of reading on the net. All sorts of stuff. I mean, I want to make sure that if I use the other domain as a means to write fiction for things like nanowrimo, or just random ideas that come to mind, that it’s easy to use and will be effective for what I want. The problem I’m running into is kind of two-fold. I cannot for my life figure out how to get MT to play nicely. I’ve settled on the theme issue. Fine. I’ll take the pretty pink thing and be happy with it. I figured out how to fiddle with the widgets and to edit the pages so that it can look exactly the way I want it to, with what’s available. I cannot, however, figure out how to install new plugins. Or when I get them in the right folder and follow all instructions, it can’t be activated.

So, after reading some rather interesting discussion with regard to the ownership of blog comments, I think I’m going to go back to a purely WP blog for that website. Because there’s a plugin you can install that allows you to create a Comment License, which clearly explains what does and does not belong to me (the owner of the blog) and the commenter.

All of this being said, this ALSO made me think really hard with regard to publishing publically my fiction. In part or in whole. Will someone steal my idea and make money off the majority of my words? Well, that’s where Creative Commons Licenses come into play.

I’ve always had better luck finding the plugins I want through WP, and when I’ve asked a question, someone’s always kindly given me an answer (or pointed me in the right direction). MT just seems to frustrate me. Akismet is pretty good at catching almost all of the spammage that comes through (and you’d be surprised at how much actually comes through, given that I don’t really have the most popular blog around). I figure it’s mostly because I’ve owned the domain forever. Probably had it registered with some SOE crap things a long time ago. And well, I think it’s even listed on some pr0n link sites because of all the spam comments I used to get (but couldn’t deal with).

Yeah. I’ve decided. Now, do I implement this tonight, or play WoW… this is a pretty intense decision.

New camera

June 23rd, 2008 | Tags: ,

As much as I wanted a DSLR camera, the price is just so far out of my league that I know it’s going to be a very long time before I can afford one of those. So I opted for a decent point and shoot. One that has a slight optical zoom as well as a digital zoom. I chose this one over some others, because of the higher ISO rating on it. I hate blurry pictures. And I hate finding out that I took a bunch of blurry pictures AFTER I’ve paid to have them printed. The only downside to this camera?? It uses AA batteries. *sigh* Hopefully it’s not as picky as my last camera… cause if it is, it’s going back!

It should arrive on Friday, which might mean that I’ll start carrying it around with me, and snagging pictures of anything and everything I want. Mostly, there are some moments when I’m with the boy that I’d like to catch, because I have so few pictures of him… let alone him and I.

Turn Left

The newest Doctor Who episode, “Turn Left” was amazing. OMG! The next few episodes are going to be insane!

My wonderful future husband David Tennant had better not do the whole die/regenerate nonsense.

As though it weren’t bad enough that I installed a TwitterFox, I also installed Plurk Firefox Sidebar… because while I don’t always update, I check often. Man, oh man. It’s all about being a geek tonight!!
