News Whining Work

Wigglebutt, wigglebutt!

This post has little to nothing to do with wigglebutts, but that’s what we like to call my nephew sometimes, so it seemed like a nice random post title for today.

This “posting every day” thing really isn’t working out too well, is it? Well, the year is still young, hopefully my posting ethic will mature right along with it.

Today’s WW meeting was good, in that I lost about a pound and a half–that’s over five pounds lost now, woo! Five pounds in a month is a tad slower than I’d like, but every loss is a good loss, so whatevs. I really need to get me some mason jars, though, as I think this idea is awesome and would help to motivate me, especially now that I can immediately put five buttons/chips/marbles/etc. into the “Pounds Lost” jar. (I, too, originally saw this idea on Pinterest, but I’m too lazy to find the original source.)

My plan for the rest of today is to work on updating a client’s website, replacing most of the Flash objects with javascript/html5 scripts–yet more evidence that Flash is indeed on its way out. That makes me sad, ’cause I’m pretty good at hand-coding in Actionscript 3, and not so good at all at coding in javascript. Time to update that skill set, I guess.

And once that’s done (the client site, not the skill set upgrade), I have two eps of Lost Girl left, which is DEVASTATING to me, ’cause I can’t find the current season eps anywhere online–not Hulu, not Amazon, not even Syfy’s website. NO FAIRS! Not everyone has cable, Syfy! WTF?!

So, that’s my day. I’d hoped to work on my bear, but once again I forgot to print out any copies of the original, and my freehand bears really really suck, so, no bear for me.

Happy Saturday to y’all!


Sleepy Friday

Yeesh! All the late nights this week caught up to me today–slept until eleven, had breakfast, then took a nap before my 2pm appointment. I don’t think it was enough, ’cause it felt like the walk across the parking lot was 20 miles instead of, you know, a parking lot. Then the Coffee Bean gave me a regular latte instead of vanilla, so that happened. Blech.

But at least I got in some practice at the pool hall after my appointment, which was necessary since I’d missed league this week thanks to excessive working. I practiced draw shots and shots on balls frozen on the rail (which I used to be good at, but have been sucking mightily at lately).

Mostly I’m just happy to be home, chilling on the couch and watching more of Lost Girl. (Don’t judge me.)

Thank gawd it’s only Friday!
