Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey people of the internet (who probably aren't reading this… I doubt anyone read when I was relatively good about posting semi-frequently, so I really doubt anyone is going to read this now. Whatever. For the rest of this post, and for all future posts, I am going to pretend that I am a super-famous blogger who has bazillions of readers. Then in like ten years when I do become that, when people look at my old posts, they'll think I was an instant...read more

We all do it
Whenever you have to do something, there are always a million things that you'd rather be doing or think are more important. Then you realize that you barely have any time left to do whatever it is you had to do originally, and you do a cruddy job on it. You promise yourself that you will never procrastinate again, and then you still do it. Also, once you finish what you were procrastinating, those things suddenly seem less important. Take me for example:

Dear advertisers who send me coupons to buy your products,
Please stop sending me coupons that say "You can save 15% off of our latest product!" I know that I can't. I can either save 15%, get 15% off, or even save 15% ON your latest product; but I cannot save 15% off. It really annoys me when you say that, and I will not patronize your store if you continue this behavior.

I just received this email from that little box in the corner that says contact me (well the box didn't send it. Actually technically it did. Or at least it passed it on to the server monkeys who passed it on to me. I mean that the box didn't write it):
I noticed that you have not posted for a few days. Is this blog going to die like all of your other blogs?
OK. So actually I wrote it, but I really did use the contact form!

Computers always beep and make other noises, no matter what you are doing. Dragging the mouse across the screen always makes that "digital" noise (I couldn't think of a better word for it), and then it beeps when they click it! Even though this never happens in real life, it always makes the movie seem more lifelike. (which is apparently one word. You learn something new every day!) If my computer made all those noises all the time, I think I'd get pretty annoyed pretty quickly. And...read more

So you know that plan I had yesterday to do something more exciting? It didn't really happen. I spent another day on the computer the whole time. Luckily, I'm getting my leg massaged tomorrow which will hopefully take care of the knot.
(This seems like the place to put a picture. Well I'm not drawing me getting a massage. That would be a little weird.)
Anyway, I spent more time working on websites. In fact, I worked on this one. At the time of writing this, it's almost done! I'm...read more

Today was kind of boring. Actually, it was really boring. My leg is still healing (like it has been for the past week), so I wasn't very active. It doesn't hurt as much, but it still spasms randomly and my knee buckles so I look like I don't know how to walk.
OK. So no one actually saw my lack-of-the-ability-to-walk because I was at home all day in front of the computer. Although having a reason to code...read more
