site updates

well, per requests of some avid blob fans and recent journal posters, I have nixed the forum (because it was lame) and replaced it with a guestbook. go knock yourselves out! in fact, please do sign it, so I can delete the test messages and have it not look empty.

I also added a page of technical information because I keep getting e-mails about how I make a webpage and what I use and stuff. A lot of the questions are very valid and I don't mind getting them, there are only a few that are like, "Will you teach me HTML?". Hopefully this will help with both.

dang, it felt good to sleep in my own bed last night! and by myself! how do married people sleep with each other every night? I think I'm gonna have to have my own space if I ever go that route... boyfriends are way better than roommates, but they still get old after a while in the same way.

let's see... I've been home now for about 14 hours... anyone want to make a prediction about when I'm going to unpack? or better yet, when I'm going to get some homework done and quit sitting around? I feel so relaxed now after the vacation. Thinking about senior design just sounds painful, like a bad memory.

i'm gonna make some soup or something now... later!

good-night saturday!

I hate personality tests, but it's so fitting that I came across this one today. I'm only 17% Canadian, that's what it told me, basically a total foreigner (I won't post the image though, because as I said before, I hate personality tests). After spending a week in that crazy land, the test was hysterical.

Did you know the squirrels there are black? I've never seen a black squirrel before, kinda blew me away, ours are all brown. Sometimes you'll see one that's gray. That's it. Dave and I talked about putting one of the toronto ones in a sack and bringing it back to Kansas for our own squirrel desegregation program, but then we remembered that was what customs was for.

On to other things... today was beautiful out. It is currently 53°F where I am, 28°F in Toronto. Eat it, hippies! I'll repeat: love your city, hate your weather... I'm sticking with Kansas. So I spent the morning wasting time with web stuff then in the afternoon I went for a run outside in the sunshine wearing shorts and a long sleeved t-shirt. ahh. came back, stretched, thought about doing sit-ups but just couldn't bring myself to it. Showered. Went to Dave's and ate soup with him. Came back, watched my tape of "SURVIVOR" from this week... it was great, they voted off this annoying biznitch I'd hated from day 1.

happy :)

Spent a long time looking at my webstats today. I've had this one counter for almost three years now (!) on one site or another. There've been lots of times when it was off, but I put it on there again for fun a few months ago. It's counted 14470 unique visitors during its time "on". damn. and I've been doing very well lately, weird to say it, spacefem.com gets 100-200 unique hits a day now, I remember when I was thrilled to have that many in a week. I could never quit my internet activity. It makes me feel immortal somehow. Scary, I know... I love being Spacefem sometimes more than I like being the girl behind her. There was a time when I really was trying to make the two identities totally separate but then I realized that one would be too boring without the other. So Spacefem is a little tougher, a little harder, a lot smarter than the girl who invented her, but they're based on the same set of brain cells. A gift to one another. But now I'm thinking too much again.

End note: I posted this in #BeOS this morning because it came up in conversation, but I thought I'd add here that this is one of the funniest reasons I love jill sobule... you should just all read it, it kills me every time!
