all of the sudden..

you hate blogger. you're *this* close to using your segpub mysql db to create your own customisable weblog that isn't controlled by blogger. updating the db is easy, but you're intimidated by not only letting others post, but also how you are ever going to figure out how to archive items. your day was terrible. scanning photos for your boss made your scanner break (!?) and you got in a spat with your darling wife and neither of you is comfortable enough to talk. and it's 11.30pm. you just remembered that next saturday you've been asked to speak at fanshawe college to a class on web design and you whipped up a presentation that you hope they will like, but don't really care whether they will or not. you released your students' final project notes to them today. you charged your ipod. you watched your isight order say "we will ship the camera you bought on or before the 26th" and notice that there is no "it's been shipped, sucka" message anywhere. you have eaten a small bowl of popcorn all day, about 5 minutes ago because you felt like you were going to be sick. you bought and broke a replacement windshield wiper blade because you've never installed them before and the hyundai accent instruction manual does not tell you how to replace them. your cats started (and somehow resolved) world war 3. you finally got around to ripping rancid: out come the wolves. you wrote a php script that takes info from a form and updates the sql table it's connected to. you've not chatted with anyone all weekend and realised that outside of the internet, you've no really "close, bestest friends". you're posting mopey blog entries, cleaning your desk, lamenting the return of the new digital camera you borrowed for the weekend, wish you had your isight, hope that your presentation on the weekend will go well, and figured out how to control every button your presentation from the actions layer so that you don't have to put on(release){_root.clipName_mc.gotoAndStop(5);} for every item - you can now just put trans_btn.onRelease=function(){gotoAndStop._currentFrame+1;} instead. or something like that. it's late and you're tired. and hungry. and a jerk. hopefully tomorrow will go better?
