Well, not a complete blank, but I can’t quite get anything creative to gel in my mind. Bleagh. Maybe I’ll just start writing random things to get it all broken loose. Well, not here, but over in UltraEdit or something. Then again, this is pretty random and all it seems to be doing is make me think about the fact I can’t think about anything.
That’s it. My workday is officially over.
“For those of you who just tuned in, the Pinedale Shopping Mall has just been bombed with live turkeys. Film at eleven.” – Dr. Johnny Fever
Forgot this one I found over on IMDb:
Les Nessman: You know, if it wasn’t for my sense of humor, I would swear I was losing my mind.
There are just soooo many good quotes, I’ll let you browse by yourself.
“In a situation like this, I always ask myself, what would my hero Edward R. Murrow think? And I think that Ed would think that this was censorship. Then I think about what my other hero, General George Patton, would think, and I think George would think that radio and television ought to be cleaned up, and if he were alive today, he’d take two armored cavalry divisions into Hollywood and knock all those liberal pinheads into the Pacific! So as you can see, I’m a very confused man. And when I get confused, I watch TV. Television is never confusing. It’s all so simple somehow.” – Les Nessman, WKRP in Cincinnati
Now that I’m done with the main part of the coding, it’s time to go back to the fun. HHHiiiIIIIYYYYAAAA!!
Well, with any luck the weirdness with the site is over. All of my PHP stuff is going and I even added that “Change Styles” section thanks to this article over on A List Apart. Right now all I have is the default look and the results of a challenge from a friend to make my site look “more like Wired’s site.” Unfortunately, the designers over at Wired seem to have access to some sort of top-secret super colors, so this is as close as I could get. Grab some shades before you click.
Okay, so now it appears I’ve made the home page work with many little PHP thingies. Now we get to see if I can do the same to the rest of the site. SaWEET!
Oh, again you’ll probably be seeing some wackiness as I make the transition. Patience, my friend. The future is near!!
Now we get to see the other meaning of Semi-Weekly Word, the fact that I might not necessarily do one a week. But I promise I’ll do better, now that Moondoggie is nearing completion. For now, you can revel in this week’s word, belief.
In the meantime, you might see weird goings-on around the site. I’m going to try my hand at PHP today (maybe) and do a little restructuring. Heck, I might even try making the site look prettier with Chimera, seeing as how that’s what I’m using to browse with at home. It’s all about me, baby.
So I’m walking through the Government Center T stop and an MBTA cop passes me going the other way with a dog sniffing around. “Cute dog” is my first thought. “Cute bomb-sniffing dog” is my second. Uh oh. Now I’m wondering if I should be messing around with my Palm Pilot. Don’t want to look like I’m setting a timer or anything…
I know I should be writing. I want to write, I think I have things to write about, but nothing’s coming out of my fingers. Well, except for those words. And those. And those two right there. You get the picture.
I think the big thing that’s stoppering up my fingers right now is insight. I guess you could say I’ve had one of those breakthrough days today. You know, where you see a little deeper into yourself and figure out some little thing that makes you tick? It’s been one of those kinds of days. Well, maybe just the afternoon.
