Yoohoo! It’s me! I’m still alive! I’ve just been busy futzing around with stuff on Benny’s Forums. Amazing how I can lose time when I’m playing around with script hacks. I added an event calendar and a new icon/link for people’s home pages and when you go into a user’s profile you get a link to their last post. There was another hack I added but I broke the admin so I had to back everything out. Actually, adding the hacks wasn’t all that hard, it was undoing the damage I’d done that took the work. Anyhoo….
I have to admit I got a little irritated when there was a push for a vote on boards for the Acmepet refugees. WTF? Why a vote? Why an “official” board? There was never an official board before, people just posted where they were comfortable. The point was made that people had said they wanted to be told where to go. I think that was extremely misread, I think what was meant was “just let me know where the majority of people will be”. And I think that would be pretty apparent by just visiting the various boards and seeing who was posting at each one. I know that I’ve offended a few folks in the past, I’m not one to mince words, but the webmaster of the other board, “Tigger’s” is not what I would consider an abrasive personality (unlike myself) and she’s put tons of work into her forum. Lots of people, though, are very resistant to change (a couple of women were heard to whine “but I’m too old, I can’t learn something new”; hey, if I ever get that bad, where I use my age as an excuse not to exercise my mind, I’ve asked Brian to take me out back and put a bullet in my head) and want to stay with that tired WWW bulletin board format, the kind offered at Boardhost. Different strokes for different folks. I mean, you’ll never hear me singing the praises of doo wop music or hip hop music. Give me light jazz or stuff from the Eagles era.
So, what’s new at the cathouse? Well, the furniture was delivered last Saturday, but the mattress wasn’t put on the bed until Tuesday night. Fresh mattress pad, fresh sheets, fresh bedspread and when we went to bed, what did I find? Yeah. You guessed it. Fresh pee. Somekitty sprayed the headboard and it dribbled onto Brian’s pillow, which would lead me to believe it was done by the penisless boy, Kirby. Too tired to do much about it, I pulled off the spread and put an afghan down, and switched my pillow with Brian’s and turned the pee spot down. Yeah, yeah, I can just see some of you gagging right now, but I guess you get hardened to cat piss. (What I’ll never get used to is the taste… :puke)
So far, though, it doesn’t seem to be really bad. I haven’t seen any puddles on the floor of cat pee like we saw in the family room. That’s nice. Mystie did jump onto the armoire last weekend and peed against the wall, but with the two coats of top coat Brian had put on, the urine came right off, cleaned up very nicely.
Annie finally seems to be getting over her recent episode. Brian foolishly decided to try to see if she’d go back into the bedroom and he picked her up from her spot on the scanner. He walked her in there and she started to freak. I was at the other end of the house and came running to see what was going on with her. Dang, I was upset. Just leave her be. If she wants to go into the bedroom, she’ll go into the bedroom. She found the office, she can find the bedroom.
Oh, for those of you on the mailing list who use AOL, the email address that turned me in started with mrs. I doubt it was anyone who is still reading the journal or checking up on my site.
I took this picture this morning. Richie was helping hubby with breakfast.
Well, I guess that's it. It would appear that I'm much yappier when I make entries more often. Hmmm... Well, now that I've done as much as I can at this time at the forums, I'll be posting here on a more timely basis.
Going to go check on laundry. Been married over 17 years now and I've only caught up with the laundry less than ten times. Go figure.
