Woah, long time and no update, sorry but I was busy.

Anyway, I was randomly inspired to avatar myself today, so after Googling I came across this post, and decided to try a few of the services. Continue reading

How Not to Fail at Life

So I'm a 9

Found this on Facebook today. Apparently I’m a 9. Here’s what it means…

9’s are natural entertainers. They are very caring and generous, giving away their last dollar to help. With their charm they have no problem making friends and nobody is a stranger to them. They have so many different personalities that people around them have a hard time understanding them. They are like chameleons, ever changing and blending in. They have tremendous luck, but also can suffer from extremes in fortune and mood. To be successful they need to build a loving foundation.

Interesting. I laughed when it said ‘no problem making friends,’ but as I read, it made sense, and actually was more accurate. Interesting…food for thought for the night I guess. Not like my mind needs stimulus form this and bittersweet Coldplay at the same time. Ooh, double-teamed by sorrow! Double-sorrow’d. …Watched Season 2 of The Guild today, and half of Season 1 as a recap and to show the roommate. Laughed pretty good at both. Yea.

During my redesign (which has actually been tweaked again since the last announcement, I discovered a funky glitch in either my own code – though I’ve never, ever seen this before – or the WordPress functionality itself – which would also be strange, but I can’t really think of what else it could be.

Blog Design Update

Well, as you no doubt noticed by now, the blog has been redesigned. Again. Well…sort of. There were a bunch of things that were bugging me about the other design: it was getting too small for the kinds of content I was posting (images and videos didn’t fit that well in the roughly 375 pixel wide content area); it was really dark, really contrasty; the image was bulky and took up a lot of space; the sidebar didn’t exist anywhere but the main page (which is weird in itself, but I just messed up the original coding and couldn’t figure it out so I gave up and made it my design’s ‘style’ at the time, heh, yea I know, cheap, but what’re you gonna do); lots of little design things, plus a bunch of stuff about the way I’d coded it to begin with was weird.
