[100 things about me]

<< current

[all content copyright 2007 by tequila mockingbird. seriously.]


learning a lesson the hard way
so, i go away for two and a half weeks, and...

1. my template is now invisible. this means it is also uneditable. which means you guys think that i've been listening to the same songs and reading the same two books for what, like a month now? it also means i can't get rid of that damn broken image link, which really gets on my nerves. i hate broken links.

[update: template is now visible. however, the template displayed in edit mode is not the actual template being used in current blog. no, it's actually my template from about, oh, three months ago. additionally, changes to pseudotemplate have zero impact on appearance of current blog, thereby calling into question status as legitamate template. which, of course, is an interesting quandry. i mean, if that "template" isn't really affecting the appearance of my blog, then what is? where is the real template? this is all a bit...irritating? and, of course, i see no current discussion of this issue on blogger status. and yet, do i consider moving to movable type? no. no, i do not. why? because i am lazy. and i'm comfortable with that.]

2. vector girl = vector gone

red synapse = not firing anymore

sour bob = so long

me = dazed and confused

if greg had disappeared, i might have actually given up blogging altogether, gone back to miami and started working as a cigar girl on ocean drive. hey...now that i see that idea written down, it doesn't seem as horrifying. hmmm.

3. it took me about 15 minutes to remember how to code a simple href tag.

this is the last time i go away for two and a half weeks and leave cw in charge of the blog world.
