I've recently come across two interesting posts. First, the posts, then we'll see where my train of thought is going.
Courtesy of my LJ Friend Alby we have for you today a link to Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure.
And from C|net (yes, again - they just have cool news, IMO) we have the "granny who likes her controller" article - by the way, that's a game console controller. She's known as "Old Grandma Hardcore" to the gamer world. Read the blog her son keeps about her. He is *so* proud. It's fun to read.
Perhaps because I've been spending hours working on learning about CSS and playing around with the template on my old blog, trying to create new banners in PaintShopProX and doing animation in my little animation program, all sandwiched inbetween the two grandkitties - one who likes to walk on my keyboard and the other who likes to sleep behind me on my chair - that I related to the above articles, if just a teensy bit.
If you want to check my progress, my original blog is called Dawno's Complete Catalogue of Ephemeral Thoughts and Personal Trivia (my daughter wanted me to call it "Drive By Booking" after a practice she and her friends invented having to do with driving by someone and throwing a book at them, and she thinks I'm weird). So far I've changed the colors on a bunch of stuff and added a banner graphic that I put together as well.
I've been animation crazy today. First I made this really nifty little animated AV today, but it's too big (over 300kb) to use it anywhere and the optimization program to make it smaller just makes it very ugly and still doesn't get it down to where it needs to be. Back to the drawing board. *sigh* Then I decided to do the new banner. The little 'favicon' up there by my URL? Made that too. (and yes, it's a Star Trek icon. )
OK, time to get the laundry finshed off.
