howdy! [May. 12th, 2005|10:45 am]
[Current Mood |hopefuloptimistic!]
[Current Music |OutKast - "War"]

I'm back in the LJing mood, at least for now. I think that's a good thing!

Last night, I put up pictures from the showers last weekend. You may notice the google ads at the top of the page. I put them up on a whim, since it's so easy to sign up for. Just thought I'd see what it was like. I'll probably take them down in a week or so. But it is nice to have a sort of page counter...maybe I should just get a real page counter instead. :-)

wildrice13 came over last night and we watched some TV and then he and djedi played some FFX-2 while quijax alternately read, watched, and then played a few games of DVONN (although only the last one was played with the correct rules - my mistake!). It's a good abstract strategy game, if you like those sorts of things. Which I generally do.

Work's going pretty well, which is neat. I had my last robolab volunteering yesterday, and I had fun. And they gave me a nice card and gift card to Bookpeople, which was really nice. I was kinda hesitant about doing it next year, but now I kinda think I will. Especially that I'll be a little more comfortable with both the lego stuff and dealing with kids. And I could use more experience dealing with kids anyway - I'm really not very good at it.

I did the Set Daily Puzzle in 32 seconds today! I was (and am) a little wired from my morning tea. quijax and djedi and I did a few crossword puzzles yesterday, which was good fun.

And I'm under 3000 songs to rate on my iPod. So, all in all, a good day!

Man, it took me 2 minutes. I'm so anal that I can't do it without an exhaustive search in a nice pattern. Maybe I need some tea.

Over a minute for me. David and I just did a rather quick and dirty experiment to show that the clock starts as soon as the page loads, so you need to jump on it.

Ok, I'm embarassed, 4 minutes, 35 seconds.

But I think I lily-gaggled when I loaded it (Gary was in my cube). And this was the first I've done (Opera got upgraded and I can use it for this now!)

Yeah, I've been practicing for a week or two. And I was really in the zone today. :-)

Well, I'm too embarrassed. It apparently took yerfdogyrag more than 10 minutes. And I think I meant lolly-gaggled. But LJ's spell checker doesn't like either expression...
