Good Morning, Vietnam

Man, if there's one thing I don't like, it's waking up, seeing the clock say it's 6am, and not having any human reason for being up that early.

I discovered that the company that has STILL not paid me for my last graphic work (which was supposed to have paid me by the 5th of this month) supposedly cut the check yesterday (after getting word to me that it would be cut today), but I'm still not certain if they are gonna take a little responsibility and FedEx it to me, or just postal mail. So, basically, I STILL dunno when I'm getting that check. *sigh*

Finished "Enter The Matrix" yesterday...beautiful. Need to see the movie, now.

More Kid Humour

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face."

The class nodded in agreement.

"Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position, the blood doesn't run into my feet?" the teacher asked.

A little fellow shouted, "'Cause yer feet ain't empty."

A three-year-old went with his dad to see a litter of kittens. Upon returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother that there were two boy kittens and two girl kittens.

"How did you know?" his mother asked.

"Daddy picked them up and looked underneath," he replied. "I think it's printed on the bottom."

S2 Can Fuck Right Off

OK...if anyone out there in the Land of High Weirdness actually understands the new S2 style system, and wants to actually spend some time teaching me what the fuck I'm missing, that'd be cool. Unitl that time, though, S2 can bite my nuts...in fact, that'd be nice, because that would put its small sensitive dangly bits right by my feet, and I could deliver the whalloping blunt trauma to them that they so richly deserve.

At this point, the only thing that really attracted me to it anyway was the fact that i cold have my journal style on the page where you leave comments, and the fact that one style would work across all views, so I didn't have to code it four times...but when I spend 2 hours just attempting to get a background picture to show up, and STILL can't do it, I gotta say, it's time to pack it in.

S2 is supposed to have all this extra functionality, and it does, there's no denying. However, you gotta be a programmer to get it working...and you better be wanting to make your journal into a techie's portal/wet dream. As we all know, I'm no programmer. Fuck this, anything and everything that I really want to do with it, I can do under S1 in HTML, and I can have the whole damn thing done in the time it took me just to finally give up trying to put up a fucking background pic.
