stuff

I did a minor redesign on cemurphy.net, and while I've always been happy with the design, I'm considerably happier with it now. There are some (generally minor) issues with it, particularly with IE, and I need to go through the quotes so I'm not spilling over on multi-lined ones, but it's a nice sleek 3 column layout now, and anybody who at one time had trouble with the navigational drop-downs should no longer have problems. I thought the dropdowns were very sexy, but oh well. The fluid 3 column thing is very sexy too. Anyway, there's still work to be done, pages to update and stuff, but overall it's tidier than it was, I think.

Can't afford the second inker I got in contact with, either. *Possibly* if I switched my page rate to euros I would be able to, but argh. Guess I'll keep trying, and go back to the expensive good guys if I can't get satisfaction elsewhere. This is making me pretty grumpy. :P

Actually, I'm feeling pretty crabby all around. Collapse )

In non-whinging stuff, I got paid, which is always not only pleasant, but exciting, because one never really knows when one will get paid, as a writer. :) This job is not for the faint-hearted. :) *eyes her whining* It is, however, for the melodramatic, apparently...

debela asked if I knew "To His Coy Mistress", to which I had to reply, indignantly, that I was an English major. *laugh* It hasn't got the raw breathtaking strength of Tennyson's "Ulysses" for me, but it does have one of the finest opening lines in poetry, I think. I need to read more poetry.

Mom & Dad's day of filming went well, and they're curious to see if they end up in the final cut for the scene. Collapse )

Not much else to mention here. We watched a bunch of La Femme Nikita last night, including a couple episodes that made us stab ourselves in the chests with the augh factor, so despite the rough start, we're enjoying the series very much. :) And once we're done with LFN there's more Alias to watch, so we will not be out of babealicious spy chix for a long time to come. Yay! :) (And ooh, hey, season 4 LFN out in June! Yay!)

'k. I'm going to go read a research novel and, er, well, probably watch some more LFN and call it a day.
