Umm... blank paper, blank paper... er- compose screen that is. What to write? Hmm... Random--
~After finishing a fairly large (for me, anyway) website design project, I seem to be avoiding my laptop. I just don't wanna look at a computer. Odd, considering my considerable addiction to this machine. Remarkable, really.
~It doesn't help that we close the office door to conserve heatable-space and the cold drives me away from my computer.
~Yes, I have a laptop, but it has issues and prefers to be conected to a bunch of wires on the desk.
~I'm kind of excited about learning to use StaticMatic and writing website code with HAML and SASS, which is automatically generated to HTML and CSS. I had a lesson in it the other night with a computer-guru friend and once I caught on, I realized I'm in love. Seriously, it's organized, concise, to-the-point, efficient. Everything that HTML and CSS are not. However, my friend still needs to find a way for me to use it on my machine as it resisted whatever-it-was that he tried to do to it. He said I just need a Mac. Cool, but yeahright.
~Every computer that comes into my possession seems to loose it's will to live.
~I'm planning Thanksgiving dinner! And Nathan's parents are intrepid enough to make the 13 (?) hour drive to share in it with us and some friends from Indiana. Am very excited!
~I have a freshly butchered, 24 pound turkey cooling it's heels in my extra refrigerator. Here's hoping I can stuff it in a roasting pan...
~I also have 26 turkey feet in ziploc bags in my freezer. When my husband brings me gifts, he does it with style.
~Also in my extra fridge: 10 pounds of beef suet to grind in with our venson and 8 pounds of pork fat to render into lard.
~(I was actually very happy! About the turkey feet. And the fat, too. I like fat.)
~I am a first-class nutcase.
~Nathan tried to slice off his left middle finger while quartering our deer. This wound began randombly spurting blood at odd intervals, necessitating a store-run for skin glue and butterfly bandages.
~The deer was resolutely frozen because it's been all of 15 degrees here.
~For Nathan's birthday tomorrow, we get enjoy some "fun" "family time" processing this deer.
Woo to the Hoo.
~Nathan always asks for yellow cake with chocolate frosting for his birthday. This year, he specified that ganache is not acceptable, that it must be "regular chocolate frosting." I said, "oh, you mean, cocoa-colored powdered sugar and butter?"
~I am wondering what illness he has.
~Scratch that. I don't want to know.
~I don't wanna know what I've got, either.
