    Yesterday I titled my post “shameless post thief” to acknowledge that I was stealing my friend Mare‘s idea and completing a reading meme.  I received 10 trackbacks on the article – all by content thieves who display the writings of others as content on their pages in order to display advertising.  I’ve long since given up begging them to remove my content from their sites.  It just continues to happen.  What’s amusing is that all 10 of them left my post title in place but cut out my cute explanation of just who’s post i was theiving and why.  Ah, the joys of the Interweebs…

    upgrades again?

    March 29th, 2008 she Posted in Cargo Hold No Comments »

    Sheesh! I just downloaded an upgraded version of WordPress a few short months (or was it weeks) ago and now I have to update it again? *sigh* Guess I know what I’m doing when I return home from the visit to my mom’s…

    is it that time already?

    I haven’t had time to upload the final colour scheme for the blog (thanks Luna) but I’m sure it’ll knock everyone’s socks off when I do have a chance to use it. In the meantime, I’m back in my basement – but sticking with the brown theme cause it’s just so darn shiny! – attempting to finish my paper before tomorrow. It’s 90% complete. I’m just struggling with establishing my own definition for personality and the subsequent justification for my interpretation. Bah!

    Last night I took the evening off in order to head to the bar and watch the Oiler’s pay-per-view. Having never seen a hockey game on PPV before I’m ashamed to admit that it took me an entire period to notice that there are no commercials shown during a PPV game. Not that the lack of commercials made the game any better. The Oil got their panties smacked and I have a feeling we won’t be repeating our dreamlike 2006 run for Sir Stanley’s Cup.

    I’ve also clued into the fact that I’m heading home to my mom’s in only a few short days. The trip has been planned for weeks but it’s easy to lose track of time when you’re madly typing away on papers and assignments. Mom got rid of her dsl connection years ago so I’ll be limited to dial-up access while I’m away. I’ll also be working on my final paper for my History class so I may not have a lot of opportunities to blog while I’m gone. We’ll have to play it by ear. If the news reports are correct you can expect to see me break out my blue theme while I’m away. Rumour has it there is still a tonne of snow out on the east coast!

    Upperdate: 9pm and the paper is finished. Can I have a cookie now?

    I’m back at work (and thus out of the basement) this week so I figured it would be a good time to change the colour scheme.  Since I spent some time last night moving over my old travel journal entries from the Philippines, I selected the browns.  I’ve big plans to move some of my old India travel records over to the blog at some time as well.  Not likely before the weekend…

    Perhaps I should set up a poll and allow readers to vote to determine if people want the ability to change the theme based on their own preferences… Nah!  That’s way too democratic for me.

    Of course, I have less than a week to finish my paper and no real idea what I’m going to say.  I guess I know what I’ll be doing each evening this week!

    locked in the basement

    Once again I am spending the weekend locked in my basement working on a paper. I expect most of my weekends over the next 3 years will likely be spent in the same manner.

    A few weeks back when I loaded the new design and joked that you’d be able to tell my moods based on the theme I’d chosen from my page someone asked (Wendy I think) how people would be able to determine what mood I was in. Since then I’ve had Luna put together a few new headers and colour schemes. I think it’ll be pretty obvious now 😉
