Hot damn! What a good day.

Ivywall
I just wanna plant a big smooch on the forehead of Wednesday, 26 October 2005. It’s been a great day. Although my brain started in neutral, I had that fat baby purring by midday. I tackled every CSS task thrown my way including a tricky horizontal dropdown menu job using graphics and no Javascript. (Well, almost no Javascript‚Äì farkin’ Internet Explorer still requires the csshover.htc file. So it goes…)
Anyway, so I gathered up all my keystrokes, gave them the skinny, synchronised watches, threw them at BBEdit and watched ’em make magic! I did some remote trouble shooting from over a barrier of monitors between the desks (seeing and understanding glitches, diagnosing and prescribing where and what to fix). I was giddy as a shaved monkey in a barrel of peanut butter! ADD was no enemy of mine today. RArrrr!

So my day of coding has wrapped and I’m changing gears to attack my next writing exercise. The Pixies are wailing and cooing from the speakers on my desk and I’ve changed my posture to a decidedly less professional slouch. Do you know what time I got up today? 6:30AM. That’s a good thing. It’s part of the get-up-earlier-yoga-work-write-bed routine I’m cultivating. I feel a sense of promise and accomplishment today and it has left me high.

There is hope.

  1. ” I was giddy as a shaved monkey in a barrel of peanut butter!”

    Pictures PLEASE!

    I have noticed that after having consuming your post, that their is much metaphor-gravy all over my plate that I can’ consume. Accordingly, as a well-bred chap, I must request some biscuits to mop it up.

  3. Heh heh… you get one extra biscuit for making your own corrections. Well done mate. 😉 (Of course, now in tune with ‘UK-speak’, I find it odd you’d want cookies with your gravy… perhaps we could settle on Yorkshires instead?)

    Would you believe that “metaphorical gravy” is a term that a dear friend and I cultivated over breakfast one year ago? I have the scrap of paper to prove it… Stumbler John, you’ve struck familiarity gold.

    Cheers!

  4. ‚Äö?Ñ?? I was giddy as a shaved monkey in a barrel of peanut butter!‚Äö?Ñ?? is truly an exercise simile rather than metaphor, but I’ll let it slide because I rather like gravy. 😉

    (To restructure the above quote in the form of metaphor: I was a shaved monkey in a barrel of peanut butter. OR In the barrel of peanut butter, I was a shaved monkey.) /* end impromptu grammar refresher */

  5. Judge Jen, we here at the hearing are quite smitten with all your verbal ballet, but please answer the original question: “where are the pictures?”

    I’m sorry, but your confirmation hearing will be simply pants without them.

    Pun intended.

  6. Keeping in the spirt of this issue I shall doubly post.

    Besides, truth be told, I like my Judge Jen with extra gravy.
