I'm outta here!

What are you still doing here? I have my new diggs, go on over and check it out. Update your bookmarks and RSS feed. It is still a bit threadbare, but the new site is up! www.lifenotforliving.com See you over there!

What a bargain!

Not quite. I know I said I was going to be busy getting the new site up, but there is nothing I can do until the switch over is complete. I am looking for some new shoes and I came across these lovelies!?!?!?! Emilio Pucci has done it again! I am speechless. I love Pucci prints, but this? I am speechless. I should add, for those who are reading this in RSS or just don't want to follow the link, these puppies retail for 1089.99 USD.

My web site is in stasis right now. I cannot EVEN begin to tell you of the ordeals I have been through getting this up. I am way to cheap to pay anyone to install the things I need, so I am doing it by myself. After all, I have a Ph.D. I should be able to get a web site up and running. Right. The web site is up ( I would say, up and crawling). It looks nice. I have my main page up (gorgeous), but my blog is not yet even up, let alone crawling. I decided to use WordPress as my blogging software. I wanted a powerful blogging software that would allow me to use my own template. I can do this with blogger, tis very true. I wanted to put in category support. No can do with blogger, not easily anyway. I also wanted some additional tabs for everything else, without having to make up separate blogs for my sewing, makeup, etc that I didn't want on my "main" blog. Wordpress seemed like the answer. The only problem is that I can't seem to get it working. I may have fixed the problem, but I have to wait for my hosting to update which can take up to 72 hours for me. The other problem is that while I am sure Wordpress has very good help and FAQs, they weren't really much help to me because the silly site works intermittently for me. So I wasn't able to access any of the forums. What I ended up doing was Google searches, then I would look at the cached page. A bit crude, but effective in the end. In the meantime I decided to come on over a give an update on what I have been doing. If anyone ever goes over to my other blog, you know that site has all but been abandoned. I was going to start posting some of my fiction over there, but I ain't writtin' no fiction in a lOOOOOOng time. I have a few scribbled notes but not much. I also bought a domain for that as well and when I finally get the kinks worked out of wordpress, I get that site up and running. Although to be honest I'll probably just keep blogger on that account. For now. Maybe. I'll see. Makes me tired just thinking of it. I just needed to take the time to sit down and DO this. I can't get it done at home because of the kids, and the fact that my battery died. Oh, don't even get me started on my battery, like where is it and will I ever see it again? Speaking of which I am calling those yahoo's right now. I hope to have a skeleton site up this weekend. OK. Let me put it this way, I'll move over to the new site regardless of what has happened this weekend.

Time is at a premium. I am in the process (of going mad, Martin is screaming his brains out, why why why? It is 1am for crying out loud, and he is still awake. Screaming. Incoherently. Why? I am going crazy) of moving to my new web site so expect some silence from me. Sorry, but wait till you see the new site, IT IS AWESOME!!! It is also (louder screaming now, why? What is wrong with him? I go in there, but he just keeps screaming. He does not want a drink, what does he want? What?) very pretty. I am in the process of getting everything uploaded and I still have some code to tweak. I also have a website to do for work, so I'll be busy over the next week or so. Watch this space for updates. Okay I must go and see Martin. Again. Always when Jason travels, always. *sigh*
