Went to work feeling rather horrid. Raining! Yay! Started working on some poster changes that Skunkie had left next to my comp. It took for-friggin-ever to load the poster in Photoshop (I'd taken it to school on my jump drive). Gak I hate working on slow comps. School should take all their computers out and shoot them. My big one was pretty good when it was new - what - 4 years ago? More? The small one should be taken aboard an airplane and dropped on the head of someone no one likes. That way at least it will've been useful in this millenium.
Vincent came speeding in at 12:20 and I told him he could do what he liked until his class started at 12:40. He told me it was a half-day. I never know anything. He found a dairy cow picture for the virtual world dasiry farm (we need fecal coliform). Halisa came in all ruppled looking and said, "It's not fair - I don't get to have art!" I therefore felt my life to be worthwhile. She worked on her drawing until they had to go to the school bus.
Then Mothra and I worked on our virtual world stuff - excellent! We decided on a million things and filled in and mailed the 447 billionth form Cornell has told usd to fill out. We worked on despite the fact that the electricity went out. Someone hit a pole? It came on and we finished up our online stuff. Tiff came in and hugged me and ran out.
I did the Firefox-speeding-up things recommended by this fellow by way of Pirate's blog. It works. I'd been crazed over Firefox's hang-up on Blogger, and this helped, but I should still look in the knowledge base and email Firefox and Blogger if it isn't a known issue, I reckon.
Dix IMed me and said my Easter egg was good - which was kind of him, and very much appreciated by me. I have been steadily improving in my building skills from my noobian efforts in Burning Life. It's difficult for me to build as my right hand doesn't work much, but there's no point in doing anything but ignoring it as much as I can.
Here's a view from inside Captnpower's Easter egg - a sit-inside-and-cogitate kind of egg.
