Due to popular demand, here’s another shot of Loyal Reader Number Twelve, looking a little tired at the end of a long Christmas day. I’m sure she’s not the only one who felt that way. She’s just the most expressive one. Photo courtesy of Loyal Reader Number Five.

Blogger seems to be working again! I had checked their Google “Help” group, and I was far from the only one who couldn’t post pictures and couldn’t post blog entries. Darn Blogger.

I took Loyal Reader Number Two’s online quiz this evening. I’m not sure where he got the idea, but it was twenty questions about LRN2, his life, and his likes and dislikes. I’m pleased to report that I got 70% right, giving me high score! It’s the only electronic game I’ve won in I don’t know how long.

I received What About Bob? for Christmas and finally got the chance to watch it the other day. I had been led by the advertising to believe it was going to be one of those Bill Murray movies where he overacts and ruins the show. Fortunately, I was totally wrong. It’s a cute movie with several very funny moments, and Murray comes off as human. I like him when he’s human, like in the not-very-well-liked-but-I-thought-it-was-okay Groundhog Day and the barely-noticed-by-anybody-but-I-really-enjoyed-it The Man Who Knew Too Little (which I believe I received last Christmas!). When he’s not human, as in the absolutely repulsive Caddyshack, he’s horrid.

Anyway. I recommend What About Bob?

I’m frustrated with my inability to come up with websites for the new and improved Gardenville Software (now containing actual software!) and the HRVA. I’m kind of paralyzed by not being able to figure out what I want to do on the technical end of things; chiefly which Content Management System to use. After doing a lot of research, I had decided on Drupal, which is very flexible, very powerful, and not too hard to customize. When I tried to implement it on Larry, though, I found that it doesn’t seem to work on 64-bit Linux installations. It gets about 75% installed and just quits. Now I’m back to square one.

And don’t even get me started on coming up with a cool design for either site. So far, I can’t even come up with a lousy one. I’m hoping Loyal Reader Number Two can give me some ideas, preferrably in the form of color sketches. I want them to look nice and clean and Web 2.0-ish. Soon. Very soon.

And it’s time for bed. Sorry about no post last night – those Wednesday church meetings take a lot of time.
