Sorry for not having updated. I didn’t even realize it had been so long. I don’t have anything profound to say, so I will just give you some updates. :bubbles:
I spent every spare second yesterday trying to figure out how to skin my site, only to end up feeling like the biggest coding loser ever. OK, so I know it’s not THAT bad, and I think I may have even figured out the problem, and am waiting for an answer now, but it was still something to knock me on my ass and humble me after how proud I felt for adding the smilies. I even have two additional graphic schemes for the site all ready to go. Here are screenshots of them:

Anyway, my weekend was pretty ho-hum, went summer clothes shopping for the kiddos on Saturday, then I took them to see The Scorpion King. Lawd, The Rock is hot. I suppose it didn’t hurt that he ran around half-naked almost the entire movie. :LOL:
And actually, the movie wasn’t all that bad either. I am a huge fan of the Mummy movies, and I think they did a good job of fleshing out the story of the Scorpion King. Of course, I LOVE action/adventure movies, especially ones set in the past, and I also love movies with that slightly mysterious “B” quality, so this was just about perfect for me.
We felt an earthquake here on Saturday morning, too, or so I have been told. I slept right through it, but apparently in originated in upstate New York, and radiated all the way to Baltimore. Yikes. C said the whole building shook and creaked for about 15 seconds or so. Thank goodness it wasn’t stronger, because this building would probably fold like a deck of cards!
And what the heck is up with this weather?? Last Wednesday it was 95 degrees, and yesterday we had sleet and freezing rain??? I don’t even know WHAT to think about that one. I just hope it settles down a bit, and I am praying to every god I ever heard of that the summer won’t be too brutal this year, especially with all of the concerns about Gregory’s heart. (Speaking of that, we FINALLY got to return the stupid heart monitor, and he goes back to the cardiologist in early June. I am hoping he gets a clean bill of health.)
That’s about it for now, hopefully I will be back later, because I have been sufficiently inspired by the sublime Su(zi)e to ponder posting a book review.

Spread the love

I can’t figure out the skinning thing. I had Zal do it. Then I had to learn it after it was there. Talk about an experience. I think you need to be some kind of rocket scientist to code the skins. Zal won’t tell me what she does for a living, but I’m guessing it involves a space shuttle of some kind.
Can’t go wrong with Lara Croft…..purrrrrrrr……

LoL@you. But I am beginning to agree with you about the skinning thing. I swear I thought I was going to pull my hair out of my head. *sigh* BUT, I begged over at scriptygoddess, so I am hoping I might get some sympathy help soon :huh:

I like your new graphics. Good luck on the skinning.

Tricia you just convinced me to go see the Scorpion King with your line, “it didn’t hurt that he ran around half-naked almost the entire movie.” :LOL:

Hey, if you need more help with skinning, let me know – I’m gonna post the links to the tutorials I know of over at scripty goddess tonight, as soon as I can find them on my messy desktop :giggle:
Hey, what’s the trick to linking directly to your Daily Musing? I keep ending up at your main page!

Christy · April 25, 2002 at 12:21 am

Man I am with you on the skinning thing. I even bought a PHP book. Now just to actually finish reading the damn thing and code something! UGH! I am a housewife for bejesus sakes! lol. Self-taught webmistress and damn proud of it! Yeehaw!
