Tracie asked, not unreasonably, why I called it a nav bar when it didn’t navigate anywhere, and Mary Anne wanted to know why she couldn’t see any new elements. Um, well, I call it a nav bar because it’s graphics on the lefthand side of the page, and my brain thinks that’s where nav bars belong, even if it’s not really actually a nav bar. And Mary Anne probably couldn’t see the new elements because she was probably looking at the actual nav bar, not the lefthand sidebar graphics.
Either that or you’re having caching problems, Mary Anne. Try shift-reload. :)
I didn’t get anything done at all that I intended to today, not even going to the gym. That, because I was cold and tired, and really wanted to read a lot more than I wanted to go to the gym, but I didn’t get to the post office or balance the checkbook or order anything (okay, I can do that now, true enough) or anything. Ted says that when he’s back from martial arts we can at least go to the PO and send Geni’s box of books which has been languishing for MONTHS.
On the other hand, I *was* weak in the face of temptation.
Shaun seems to have sneakily brought some books home for me. :) The other day we were talking about Katherine Kurtz’s Deryni books — I own the Camber books but never got the Deryni trilogy — and this afternoon I finished reading my Anne Perry novel and was looking around for something else to read, and my eyes lighted on the Camber books, and after a moment or two I realized that High Deryni, Deryni Rising and Deryni Checkmate had suddenly and mysteriously appeared on the shelf (along with King Kelson’s Bride, which I have also not read). So when Shaun comes home I’ll have to make big eyes at him and hug him a lot. :)
We went to _A Beautiful Mind_ today, and wow, it was good. Really good. Go see it. Now.
There we go. Fifth (and sixth) elements up on the nav bar. That, I think, is enough. I shall have to swap them out in the future if I feel I need something new. :)
Rogue to Ruin is officially up and running on my subdomain. Now I am very tempted to create a similiar images site for Gambit … :)
Chipper Kit! Who is now going to go find out what it takes to upgrade from the standard hosting plan at 100megs to the, um, advanced plan. Just in case I decide I /do/ want to do the Gambit site. :)
Thinks to do tomorrow:
1. Sign up: for art class (woot! yay! beginning drawing class! happiness! Even if it *does* meet on Tuesday nights, which means tape-delayed Buffy! Wah! But that’s okay. I can live with these small sacrifices.)
2. Mail: Geni’s books, Deirdre’s present, Ted’s parents’ presents, Janne’s presents
3. Order: Ted’s other birthday gifts, now that it’s been determined I can’t find them in town
4. Drop by: Burger King and get the Rogue toy
5. Balance: the checkbook. Ok, it’s not fun, but it’s necessary.
6. Go: to the gym! I didn’t work out at all this weekend, and I ate LOTS today. oof!
Check back tomorrow for more exciting updates! See if Kit has accomplished her tasks! *toots a horn*
Ted cut off his hair! Aii!!! It’s —
— actually, it looks very good. It’s only marginally different than it was when we got married — I’ll get a photo tomorrow or later tonight and post it — and it’s possible I like him better with short hair. Or maybe I just like being able to see his face. :) But I like it, and he seems to like it, so all is well! (Trip said, “Kit is contagious!” Hee hee hee.)
We spent the entire day cooking, it seems like. Ted made dinner, the name of which I can’t spell, but it was very yummy, and I made a German chocolate cake which was also very yummy, and ate entirely too much (oof!), and Ted got Tron and Queen’s Greatest Hits V. 1 & 2 and a gift certificate to Bosco’s (the comic shop) and to Border’s, and tomorrow we’re going to go get him a set of golf clubs, ’cause, well, he likes golfing and he thought that might be a nifty present. And there’s a couple other things I’m going to get him, too. :)
