My Web Host Sucks

Well, I guess I'll be posting here for awhile until I get moved back to town and set up my own server. Those dorks that hosted my site are moving their operations to new Linux servers and can't get my stuff to copy over (file names too long, they say). Marcus wants to sever ties with those guys, and since I refuse to pay them for this ineptness, I'm going to have to post here. I am so irked about this. I can't even ftp in to make sure I have all my files backed up and I can't export the MovableType entries because the jerk disabled Perl. He's supposed to enable everything tomorrow so I can get my site off of their server, but geez, what an unprofessional way to run a business. When is my life going to fall into place? I'm so tired of everything being up in the air. If something doesn't resolve itself soon, school is going to start suffering. The stress is starting to make my stomach hurt, and I didn't even want to go to school today. While I was there, my mind was so preoccupied that I couldn't concentrate on anything. I REALLY hate it when life gets like this.

Friday Five

Friday Five

1. What shampoo do you use?
Infusium 23 Maximum Body for Fine/Limp Hair

2. Do you use conditioner? What kind?
I have to or my hair won't behave at all! I also use Infusium 23 conditioner. When it's really dry, like it has been lately, I also use the Infusium leave-in treatment to help control it.

3. When was the last time you got your hair cut?
Many, many months ago, and that was just a trim that I made Marcus give me to even up the length. I don't see the point of spending money to have my hair done when it's up inside a hat at work all day, six days a week.

4. What styling products do you use?
For a special occasion, I'll put styling gel in it and use a little hair spray. Other than that, not a thing (see above).

5. What's your worst hair-related experience?
Back in the day when I used to party and drink alot, I tried to light a cigarette on a gas stove and burned my bangs off. Boy, did that stink up the place! The second worst experience was when my sister was giving me a haircut and I made some smart-assed remark about something and she took it out on my hair. I ended up looking like a boy the whole summer. I hated it!

But My Horoscope Said…

Dear LaDonna, here is your Horoscope for May 17, 2002

Though you've been feeling especially strong physically over the past few days, Ladonna, today you might suddenly feel a little under the weather. You might even experience a little giddiness. This is nothing to worry about, but you do need to relax a little and take it easy. Don't try to exercise if you aren't feeling up to it. Get some rest. Even if you have to postpone some chores, you'll be better off in the long run.

Best wishes for today, from the Astrologers of
Sounds like a great plan to me. I need a nap.

License Plate Tags - How Hard Can It Be?

Am I the only one noticing that more and more people can't figure out how to put their license plate tags (the month/year expiration ones) on correctly? I don't know how it works in other states, but in Colorado they even give you a little picture on the envelope of how they're supposed to go. I've seen them on the wrong corners, opposite from they way they're supposed to be, and even TWO YEAR stickers and no expiration month. Dumbasses. I know it's my Virgo perfectionism that makes this bug me, but I see it more and more. I was at a stop light the other day and there were 3 cars in front of me with incorrect tags. It's pathetic.

I'm really close to launching my Movabletype weblog. I did something that totally screwed it up, but I think I've got it fixed now. As soon as I finish tweaking my template, it'll go live. Yay! I'm over my total Sims obsession (for now--wait until Hot Date is released for Mac at the end of the month), so I'm actually getting some other things done.

April Z, a co-anchor of the 850 koa morning news, annoys the crap out of me. She's a smart-ass who is always dogging on people . Yesterday, the new Rockies manager was a guest and he told the news crew right off the bat he was there to talk about the team. She wouldn't let go of the humidified balls thing that all the media have been harping on recently. He went off on her. It totally cracked me up. Now I know why they're doing better as a team. This is a no-nonsense guy who doesn't take crap from people.

Oprah is doing a show right now about girls' aggression and how they are mean to other girls. They make it sound like it's been a big secret that girls are horrible to each other. I learned that lesson a long time ago. That's why most of my good friends have been guys or tomboyish girls. I can't stand most women. Look at the way some of the women in the blog world treat each other. It's scary. My sister is a typical woman. Maybe that's why I can't stand her, either. I find most women to be petty, superficial, phony, two-faced, etc. I don't play like that.

Sims Junkie

Sorry about the lack of interest I've had in posting. I'm so sick of the same stuff day after day after day . . . .

Just as I feared, I became totally addicted to "The Sims." I've been so caught up in my Sims' lives, that I've been neglecting my own. *Tsk, Tsk* I was a little disturbed yesterday by a page I found with ways to kill off your Sims. Some of the objects available for download for your game are a little bizarre, too. People scare me.

Marcus and I finally got to sleep in our bed last night after two nights on the sofa bed (nothing like sleeping with a metal bar in your back!). Our bed has these two purple foam pads in it that cover the water tubes. They soaked up the majority of the water. Imagine trying to dry a king-sized 5-inch sponge. It took three days of being outside for those to dry out. They can't be damp when they go in the bed or they will mildew. Yuck. But it's all back together now and I had such a nice sleep last night. The bed is calling me again, but I'm resisting the urge to nap. I've got so much stuff to do.

It was soooo freaking cold this morning. Of course, the idiot manager at work left the swamp cooler on all night. It was so cold that I couldn't hardly move. The weather person said it was a record-breaking 23 degrees this morning when I went to work. Brrrr.
