I’m just herping and derping around. I’ve messing with my blog plugins. Wondering if I need to change the theme, considering learning how to write a wordpress theme. Except I really like the Steampunk feel to it.
I’m thinking about all the things I need to do around the house and how I just don’t have it in me tonight.
I’m trying VERY HARD not to be annoyed by my kidlet who decided that she needed to give herself a cough. Yes she was feeling a bit weird a couple of days ago so she made herself cough to get attention. She did it so much she now has a cough for real. It’s making me a bit nuts. Because it is and isn’t a real cough. I don’t know how to describe it.
It’s November we all have allergies. We’re all kinda grumpy and sick feeling.
I got sick enough from some things I ate at Thanksgiving that I’m on day 2 of eating salads for lunch. I will do that this week and probably next. I have my sugar free balsamic and oil dressing. Sugar Free…really, why does salad dressing need high fructose corn syrup?
Talking with some folks about doing our own Reverb 11. Not sure if there is enough time to put it together, but maybe there is. I liked it last year. It did help crystallize some things for me. I beileve it was an important part of me deciding to really really lose weight this time and change how I eat. I’ve done really well at it too—until the end of October and Fangsgiving that is.
I don’t really get what Gwen Bell (inventor of Reverb 10) is doing with her posting to inboxes instead of the web, but then that’s her process not mine. I know I do like the sense of community that started developing about a year ago here and on twitter.
I’m waiting to hear about something that could be quite a big change. When do you consider your options and then just jump? I guess I jumped off the low board already, I’ve come up for air, I’m looking around and seeing what I can see. Things will change—either the thing itself or how I deal with that type of thing. Still being cryptic yes…
And here’s the most random thing of all. I’m really starting to like the macbook I use at work. I use both a mac and a pc. PC’s because most teacher use them, macs because someone needs to be the one to call for all those questions. I’ve come a long way in a short while, especially considering my experience on a mac was with a IIci. I’m fine with the server end of things, because, well it’s a server and when in doubt you can use the console. But I’m not comfortable with how the mac just decides things for you –and good lord that downloads folder is going to make me insane. I’m getting better at it though. I do like how the programs just work and the apps are inexpensive, for the most part—for either the ipad or the macbook. And the interoperability is very cool. I’ve been building and using pc’s since they had green/amber screens and DOS. What the HECK is going on with me? It is because it is so pretty?
it’s too damn expensive that’s for sure.
A haiku for you however:
all browsers do suck
PC or Mac no matter
hourglass rainbow wheel
So there is my blather collection for today. Tomorrow I have to post early I think, because the cutoff is 2pm. So there will be a quick “I made it,” to make sure that I do in fact, cross the nablopomo finish line.
