KrisDi and I went to the J. Paul Getty center yesterday (for fun). We even took some pictures. I also made an index for all the pictures I will someday put on the web. Obviously, most of the links are crap right now. This thing was probably the coolest thing there. I also liked this painting of Bacchante. It made me think of Andi. Looking at the encyclopedia entry for Bacchante, that still holds.
It was probably because of the severe urge to urinate, but I dreamed about jet skis. It seemed kind of like Lake Ashtabula, but I’m not sure any of you know what/where that is. Anyway, I think I was racing with some other jet skiers, and then we had to start dodging people who were floating around on inner tubes, and then I started going up a water slide (that’s when it got really hard to dodge other people). Anyway, the waterslide started getting really steep, and about the time the jet ski started sputtering because it couldn’t go up steep enough (not that going against the flow of water was hard, it was just going uphill), I woke up. And urinated for about ten minutes.
So, I know how to do all the basic stuff I want to do. I can make simple pages for you odd folks to download things like old videos of my robot and whatnot. I just have to get around to doing it. I will someday have a hai ku page, and a quote page (onto which Andi [who changes her alias too often for me to settle on one to use] has already made it, and Wilmbo assuredly will [if he ever talks to me again]).
Lately I’ve tried and failed miserably to do a 5 star (difficult) Sudoku puzzle, which my lovely girlfriend (whom I shall henceforth dub “KrisDi”) KrisDi conquered in about 45 minutes. After about an hour and a half, I had figured out less than a quarter of the puzzle. She’s obviously much smarter than me. USA Today also offers some free crossword puzzles which I frequently attempt, and occasionally finish without any help or cheating. Which makes me feel a little smarter. At least I beat her at Scrabble last night.
Sooner or later I’ll make a real index page, with links to friends’ blogs, and other links I find interesting. And I’ll create a downloads page for videos (especially since I have a video camera now — if only something video-worthy would happen). We have a hilarious video KrisDi took at a White Sox game where you get to listen to her yell at her mother for trying to tell her how and what to record. And I’ll put more pictures up. I’ll even have a very narcissistic photo of me up there somewhere. And for those of you interested, I might even try to set up some free hosting if you have things you want to share, since I’m 99% sure I’ll never use all the bandwidth I’m paying for.
So, in conclusion, comment on this post or others to keep me amused and make me think people are interested in my drivel. Or at least let me think someone reads it. Also, give me cool links to cool things on the interwebs, and I shall share them with the rest of the consequential world (ergo, the folks who view my innocuous site).
The majority of my posts for a while will be about trying to make this webpage work. Which means, of course, that it will mostly be bitching about not knowing what I’m doing. Anyway, today I tried to upload a directory of pictures (accessible from here somewhere), and as I mentioned , it sucked. So I don’t recommend that software.
I was experimenting with some picture gallery software, which I used to make the thing I uploaded. I’ll probably use that a lot more. Eventually I’ll have a download page, so I can put dirty videos and other strange things up. I may even play with flash.
Anyway, I’m glad I’m back from Japan. That was a long ass trip. Later folks.
