December 29 2003 – morning

December 29, 2003

Much fun at the Blackwell’s the Blackwells’ John and Erin’s house yesterday. Had pizza, exchanged gifts (we got a mini air hockey table, a teeny apothecary for Thor, and some Chai Latte mix for me!), and laughed a lot.

I was *going* to update LadyGypsy.net last night, but to my horror I discovered that all my neato fonts were missing!! Most importantly, Bickley Script, which is what I use to craft the logo and the navigation buttons. (sigh) Once I reinstalled WorksSuite 2001 or whatever-its-called I got the fonts back. But it was too late for an update.

I’m jonesing to redesign again. This current version of LGN is over a year old, and now I want to see if I can do a site that uses mostly CSS formatting rather than tables. This is something that probably means nothing to 95% of the populace…but I think it’s pretty cool. It’s because of that darn CSS Zen Garden site. I’d try to work with their template, but they only want graphic designers to come out and play, so I’ll forge out on my own.

Tomorrow is my one-year “Blogiversary.” This is the longest that I’ve ever kept a diary.

Disney dreaming: MomJohnandI will be jetting off to WDW Friday afternoon 1/16 and coming back Monday night 1/19 for a whirlwind tour! Thor’s staying home — he couldn’t get the time off. We’ll be meeting John and Erin for breakfast Saturday Morning.

Wt: Horrors! I’m feeling rounder around the middle. Not good. Not good. Don’t want to weigh though — that’ll depress me muchly. Beets and water!
Mood: Fairly even-keeled. Much to do, and I’m still extremely anxious about this new position.
Work docket: Next week is end of month again. There’s a threatened conference call w/corporate again about a continuing Real Estate issue, and I HAVE to really get on the stick and hire someone new. I have most of the ad written, but need to know my next step. I also have to work on Ski contest stuff for the NJ group. Translation: I put the contest together and let the other 6 Gannett NJ papers know about it. Pretty cool…it’ll give me the chance to ‘debut’ statewide.
Lunch plans: Beets and water! (actually, a subway veggie delight sandwich)
Afternoon: Rousing walk with Max, plus a trip to the grocery store — we are out of everything! Oh, and the dry cleaners, too.
Evening: Clean bathroom and computer desk. Continue laundry. Drop into bed.
