Progress …

The rain continues to fall, and fall, and fall.

The Polaroids are up.

Brianna the work-a-holic, has gotten off the computer long enough to allow more work on the custom BLOG tool. This is my new project to increase the frequency of updates to this very site. The tool has users, passwords, sections, search and any other feature I can think to add. In its current state, it can output all the HTML that comprises this site. Unfortunately, it can’t do updates yet. I’m slowly working on fixing that. I have all the k-nowledge, I only need a little more time.

The sites I like to read in my spare time have all been redesigning lately. I like what I see. Most have harped on the importance of validation. I too think validation is important, so I have been making sure my day job’s intranet site validates (I have had an internal mirror on my own server for some time). It seems that I had gotten a little careless with the updates at work, but now everything is well and all my pages validate.

It's Prom Night

Enchantment Under the Sea

Remember your high school Prom? Wasn’t it the best time you ever had in you life? Well, come re-live those memories!!

Best time of my life? I don’t know, I didn’t go to my high school prom, but tonight Brianna and I are going to an “Enchantment Under the Sea” Prom party. It should be fun. Everyone is of legal drinking age so we don’t have to hide flasks in our jackets. It’s a fun humorous gig, not a serious one. The party’s host is wearing a powder blue tux complete with vintage 1970’s ruffles. The photos from this event should be hysterical. I will definitely be taking my camera.

Maybe I can make some extra money black-mailing the attendees.


Burning Orange

I spent a sun filled Saturday at DKR Stadium watching the Horns squeak by the OSU Cowboys. I moved from my usually scheduled section to sit with the students in section 24. The kids are loud and full of emotion and make the game much more bearable than the lax people that sit around me in the south end zone. I found the left side of my face burnt from the hours of constant easterly exposure.

Brianna couldn’t go to the game. She spent 3 of 5 working days at the [Doctor’s office][1] while Nurse Sanna was at a conference in Chicago. Brianna was told to take it easy. Baby Jones must have missed her mammy. Roscoe might have missed Nurse Sanna too. He is back in the hospital following foot surgery. This precautionary measure may help prevent a worsening of a probable infection. Get well soon, they don’t like hospital patients drinking beer in their rooms.

Sunday was home improvement time. Enter Exhibit A, the paint brush. Notice the handle? We bought a juvenile bookshelf for the baby’s room. I painted everything white and then went back and sprayed the letters on the side in primary colors. The paint brush handle was too long to fit in between the shelves, so I cut about two inches from the end.


At The Doctor's Office

Brianna spent 3 of 5 days visiting the lovely folks at ARC. She and the baby are OK. Here are some more sonograms of the every growing baby. I guess that’s not a pillow in there.
