Stuff

<div class=\"pavatar\">Stuff</div>

I had planned on getting at least one new fic uploaded to the Pinkish Pages today. Then I discovered the site was broken. At some point, between the last addition and now, a Starscape theme upgrade made several of my widgets produce errors. I’m sure the theme’s designer will say that the problem is with the widgets because his code is flawless (he boasts this in his read me.txt files), but after testing the widgets out with a new theme, at the still under heavy construction Lavender Room, everything worked fine. He is also responsible for the original rating system I was using on the site. One which I had to tweak, one way or another, each time he updated it. Needless to say both have been replaced. The new theme is a flexible/variable width one, so I don’t have to really worry about line length. Visitors can just reduce the size of the window (and zoom in, if necessary) for optimum ease in reading. It was also created by someone who knows just about as much about style sheets as I do (which is just enough to get by), so it was fairly easy to change the color scheme. My only concern is those who still surf using the dreaded IE. You get a runtime error on every page if you view it in that browser. Luckily, most of my friends have the smarts to be using something else. Right?

Glenn is sitting on his ass, watching the Super Bowl. I had planned on recording it — if only to watch the commercials — but then remembered what happened I when I did this last year. For three months Glenn watched the stupid thing every night. He’d probably still be watching it if it hadn’t accidentally been deleted. Anyways, I figure they always have them available for viewing online and I’m sure someone on my f-list will be nice enough to share the link to the site, if I don’t find it first. I made chili for the event. It wasn’t the traditional vegetarian crock pot recipe that I always forget to write down. Everyone and their mother seems to have wanted the book it comes from as all five library copies were on hold. I managed to find a veggie-ful recipe in another crock pot book. It contains meat, including bacon, and takes forever to cook, but it came out yummy! I’ll see if I can get it uploaded to my cook book this week.

I’m now off to confiscate the bottle of vodka Glenn thinks he is hiding from me. I just need some Diet Dew.
