Is this thing working?
1, 2, 3...
I thought something would explode. So far, this seems to be working alright. (However, most of the links on the left don't work right now. I didn't bother with them because I was completely immersed in the task of making this stupid thing work.) The template tags in Movable Type make me want to...not use Movable Type. But I used it anyhoo. Otherwise you may not get to see this BEAUTIFUL display of webdesign I lay before you!
...sarcasm, yes. I'm not colorblind, so the muticolored sunshine palette I based this page on was done on purpose. BWAHAHA! I mean, I designed this page before deciding that the easiest way to implement a blog would be to stick an unsightly iframe in the middle, and at that time, it looked somewhat acceptable. Kind of like if you drop a piece of food on the floor but pick it up a second later, dust it off, and deem it still safe for human consumption. It would have been better if you didn't drop it on a germ-infested floor in the first place, but hey, what can you do about gravity? Maybe I would be better off if I were colorblind...
So what happened to this site? Well, it went on a little vacation for a while ...in website heaven. Whatever happened to the Web Hosting Factory, I have no idea, but I hope lightning strikes it and fries its organs nice 'n crispy. So I've moved to EHost Pros and so far it's the most amazing thing in the world. It's kind of like that time I won the $100,000 prize in a fly-fishing contest, except I didn't win anything and I don't fish, so...this is in a league of its own. Because of the mind-boggling features that come with a reseller package, I developed the desire to scoop up domain names by the truckload (or scoopload) and take over the world. That plan didn't work, so I just bought two new domain names; beckbeckbeck.net and evenmagnet.net. For less than $10 a year, you can own a name! Not just a name, a name-dot-something!
Yup, I'm easily gratified by buying domain names. And the "dot-something" is, in my case, always ".net," which gets boring after a while. But that lovely ".nu" costs a bundle that I'd rather spend on something else, like underwear.
...are you still reading this? Holy crap, you are! Hm. I guess I will continue blabbing on.
So Robyn, what have you been up to lately? Poking mud with sticks?
Maybe I have, maybe I haven't. Okay, I haven't. I've been writing in my livejournal as a way to cope with being blog-less, but not I am un-blog-less, which makes me...blog? I'm BLOG! Other things I've been doing are getting loads of junk for college, wondering how to sell some poofies, ridding myself of mucoid plaque, and working on other websites (as you can see, I haven't gotten very far). Today actually ended the question of banishing my mucoid plaue to septic tank hell, woohoo! I wasn't supposed to eat any solid food today (was just supposed to drink juice and take my herbal tablets and junk four times a day) but I cheated and took my tablets and junk three times while eating a substantial amount of food. It wasn't like I was even hungry, but that feeling of eating is just so gratifying. And that's the weird thing about this past week of not really eating anything; I didn't feel hungry. I felt the same as I would have on a regular day, except I had a few more hours that I would have spent eating to do something else. Like poking mud with sticks!
You know what fruit is really good? Figs. FIGS! I didn't even like them before, but I've been eating a lot of them lately because my mum really likes them. And now I do too, mmm. They're not very sweet, but when you bite into one, it just tastes fresh. I don't get that feeling a lot from other fruits...I mainly get it from other vegetables, like some fresh greens or peas. If you've never had fresh figs before, try em!
