Bored, Bored, Bored

Posted 2008.12.26 1.00 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

I’m bored of the internet.

I look at my websites and they are old and boring and I don’t feel like updating anything and don’t have anything in mind to update anyways.

Don’t feel like surfing. Everything is boring or depressing.

What comes after the internet? What’s next?

Merry F’ing Xmas

Posted 2008.12.25 1.00 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

Yes, it’s ‘that’ time of the year again. The malls and shops are mobbed, people are actually wishing for snow, and the usual television schedule is continually being pre-empted for xmas holiday drivel.

Of all the television x-mas specials, there is only one which I think truly captures the spirit of xmas. In fact, Dennis Leary’s special doesn’t just capture the xmas spirit, it goes on to stuff the spirit of xmas into a small cage so we can poke at it with pointed sticks. “Jab! Jab!” “Ooo I got it in the eye!” “Ha ha! Take that xmas!”

Moving on, did you know that “Santa” is an anagram for “Satan”? That the former is also known as “Saint Nic” and the latter, “Old Nic”? Ever notice that they both wear red? One must wonder, what ‘Santa’ does the other 364 days of the year…

Happy holidays…

How Am I Supposed To Know

Posted 2008.12.17 1.00 in Life On Drugs by Stephanie

How am I supposed to know when this stuff works, anyways?

I’ve read all the literature I can find, and it’s really good about describing what the side effects are, but actually nowhere does it describe what the desired effect is.

Is it supposed to make me feel good? Or just make me feel less bad? How much less is enough? There ought to be a way to measure or meter it, so you know if it’s working or not.

Hmph.

In other news, I discovered there’s actually a WordPress for Dummies book, so I might pick that up to start figuring out this new fangled stuff.

A Week of Crypto-Spam

Posted 2008.12.11 1.00 in Life On Drugs by Stephanie

It’s been a full week now of cryptospam and I think the side-defects are starting to fade. Already it’s nearing noon and I don’t feel completely freaked out/jumpy/edgy/gritty. I don’t feel great either, but at least it has stopped feeling like the tail-end of an acid trip.

Still having trouble concentrating/focusing though, my productivity this week has been really low. Easily distracted too. And, as always, very, very tired.

Spoke Too Soon

Grumble grumble grumble, the heebie jeebies turned up around noon, they were just late today for some reason.

Drat buggely.

Wierd Stuff

Playing with graphics. Wireframe. Kind of funky.

Stuff and Such

Posted 2008.12.08 1.00 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

So I’m hearing things about wordpress, and maybe it’s better to use that since this bloggish software I wrote 2 years ago is ok but hasn’t got a lot of the features that a full featured blog program would, and it’s kind of dumb to reinvent the wheel when something better is out there for free. My sister is getting a wordpress site set up for her and I’m thinking that once hers is running I will look into how its done and see about converting this site to wordpress, but every time I start to think too hard about it I get overwhelmed with exhaustion and it seems like a lot of work. I’m wondering now if there’s like a book or something, sort of like WordPress for Tired, Distracted, Discombobulated Impatient Dummies With Short Attention Spans.

I’m also just anal enough that I would need to move all 227 posts from this software over into WordPress so that everything is neat and tidy and in one place. And that also seems like an exhausting ordeal.

Still, maybe I’ll do it one of these days. It might be a CFT(*) project.

(* CFT = Copious Free Time, a term coined by the scientist / musician / comedian Tom Lehrer which in my family has come to mean, “just before the end of creation” because nobody ever has any free time, and if they do get some free time, they sure as heck don’t want to waste it on a CFT project.)

Speaking of which, Tom Lehrer is very clever and funny. Go and buy some of his albums and listen to them.

(edit: that’s 228 posts, now.)
