Down Time

I’m still struggling with my depression and OCD. I think I’m going to try and stay offline on Saturday, and try and relax as much as possible.

Well, relax as much as one call while running errands and doing laundry and such.

So amuse yourselves while I’m gone, just don’t eat ALL the chocolate, or I will be Very Put Out.

Friday Cat Blogging

It’s back to all Kat all the time apparently.



For someone who hates water, he’s pretty obsessed with the tub.

100% Heathen

Your morality is 0% in line with that of the bible.


Damn you heathen! Your book learnin’ has done warped your mind. You shall not be invited next time I sacrifice a goat.

Do You Have Biblical Morals?
Take More Quizzes

That’s right. I’m 100% heathen and proud of it!

Time for Another Game of Word Association

I got nothing. So that means you get a game of word association.

Today’s word is…

Not Just New to Me, But New New!

This weekend Michael and I both got new monitors for our desktop computers!

Best Buy has 18 months same as cash is you spent $500, and we both needed new monitors and I also needed an external hard drive, so, YAY!

New Monitor!

I got a 22″ monitor. Michael got a 20″ monitor. Why, you’re asking, did I get a larger monitor? Because I use my desktop computer on a regular basis. Michael rarely uses his. Though he swears that now he has a new monitor he’ll use his desktop more often.

Yes dear.

As far as details in the picture, I’d like to point out the two best fortunes *ever* that are taped to the desk.

The first says, “The skills you have gathered will one day come in handy.”

The second (which is my favorite) says, “There is no substitute for good manners except maybe fast reflexes.”

Any questions about the crap on my desk, just ask. You should be able to just see three references to DS9 on my computer desk, two obvious, one not.

Still Writing!

But still not, like, fiction writing.

// function to add/update reviews

function update_reviews($book_ID, $Review)
$query_review = “UPDATE books
SET Review = ‘$Review’, Status = ‘$Status’
WHERE book_ID = ‘$book_ID'”;
$result_review = mysql_query($query_review);

// create the query to add the review web address

$a = 1;
WHILE ($a <= $r) { $book_ID = $_POST['book_ID'.$a]; $Review = $_POST['Review'.$a]; $Status = $_POST['Status'.$a]; $Review_updated = update_reviews($book_ID, $Review, $Status); $a++; } $a = $a - 1;

Of course after two days of fighting with it, Michael fixed my concatenation: $book_ID = $_POST[‘book_ID’.$a];. I tried everything under the sun but that.

However, it all works now, which is all that’s important.

And of course this is all for the back end/management of my book database. You all don’t get to play around in the back end–no offense, but I don’t need anyone else adding or editing books.

Tasty Tuesday: Oreos

Homemade Oreos

Homemade Oreos

Think they look good? They are!

The recipe can be found at Smitten Kitchen, and is very very easy. I use a ziploc freezer bag with a corner cut off to disperse the filling.

Almost forgot…


And a very very happy belated birthday to Erin! (Where are those baby pictures?!!)

Apropos of nothing…

Was staring at my keyboard, and noticed that I have worn off about a quarter of the C sticker on the C key.

Nothing else is worn away on this keyboard, but the A S E R T N and spacebar keys are shinier than the other keys.

Looking at my laptop, which ancient in technology terms, I’ve worn away the C and S and C stickers, and the A E R T H I L N and spacebar keys are very shiny.

So I’m curious, is this wear normal on all keyboards, or is it a function of how I type (which is NOT to touch type, as I never learned.)

Deep Breath

Y’know, I’m getting really tired of this current bout of depression/anxiety.

I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing–exercise, getting enough sleep–but I don’t feel like I’m getting much better.

One clue is that when I can play endless games of solitaire on the computer, my head isn’t all it should be. I’m trying to do things I like, such as baking, but even that seems kinda futile right now. I’ve got projects I want to do, I just can’t get up the oomph to do them.

So here’s your task for today: Amuse me. Make me laugh. Tell me really stupid jokes–the dumber the better, and I love bad puns.

Laughing makes me feel better, so I challenge you to give me something to laugh about.

Meanwhile, I’m going to try to keep busy, to see if that helps.
