It Be The Little Things… And The Big Things, Too

After looking over a few of my old blogs I realized I should probably be blogging regularly still.  Years from now, I’d like to be able to look back at old entries like this one.  What was going on my life?  What have I experienced?  How did I react?  Who did I block on Facebook?  These are the things I’ll look back on.
So, what did vertigo do today?  That’s me, by the way.  vertigo.  No, I don’t capitalize the ‘v’.  Ever.  If you ever see it capitalized somewhere, such as on justin.tv/twitch.tv, then someone else made it that way.   I am vertigo with a lowercase ‘v’.  So… what did vertigo with a lowercase ‘v’ do today?  Find out in the following pair o’ graphs.

I woke up.  Several times.  I think I woke up more times than I fell asleep, which must mean something.  What did I have for breakfast?  Oh, I had nothing.  Eventually I ate some leftovers.  I didn’t get much work done until later in the afternoon.  Even then I didn’t get much done.  I’ll get more done tomorrow I hope.

Eh, I can’t say I did a lot today.  I began building a Portal 2 co-op map.  That’s… neat.

Y’know what, I don’t really have anything interesting to say right now.  Maybe it’s because I haven’t blogged in so long that I’m just not sure what to say any more.
Can anybody give me any ideas for things I could write about in my blog?

Does anyone care??

Haha, no, I’m not whining about getting attention this time.  I’m listening to the Cranberries and the last lines she sang as I started this blog were “Does anyone ca-aa-aarre?”

I’m really liking my new banner.  I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent fiddling with different ideas and designs, trying to come up with something clever or catchy that also says something about me or my personality.  Really.  I can’t tell you.  I have no idea.  I just know it was a long time.  I thought a picture of my face would be a nice touch… so I played with several ideas using pictures… but finally I decided that the title “Life” and the words “and then some” just really didn’t need to be there… so I took them out, and I think it was the best choice.  Of course, then I was just left with a picture of my face and nothing else… so I wanted to put some random things in there that had something to do with me or my life.  I first thought of pieces of photos, but that thought left in a hurry.  Words.  Had to be words.  Long story short… I used words.

It’s really humid again today… well, it’s rainy… so obviously it’s gonna be humid.  It’s not a cool rain, though.  Most of the morning it was nice and cool, but now it’s quite warm.  Y’know that feeling after you take a nice hot shower in an unventilated room, and all the steam makes it nearly impossible to dry off… not to mention the heat causing you to sweat, which just adds to the moisture…   well, it kinda feels like that, except that I’m dressed, and not in an unventilated room… and I didn’t just take a shower… and I’m not you.

I actually had a shower like that when we were up at June Lake during my camping trip.

 


Stuffs and Updates

As you can see my blog design is a little different.  I went ahead and paid for a custom CSS upgrade so  I can have the most flexibility with the design.  I’m not limited to the existing theme layouts.

I stayed home from work today so I don’t have to talk at all.  I am going to rest and not use my voice for anything, which means I won’t be doing a video log… well, maybe I will do one if I am feeling better tonight.  My coughing won’t go away unless I let my irritated throat heal, and the more I talk or use my voice, the longer that’s going to take.

I dunno what else to say at the moment.

Oh, yeah.  If you look on the side bar you’ll find a link to my old myspace blog archive.  The earliest is from Nov 10, 2005.  In 5 days that post will be exactly 4 years old.  I was thinking… it would be kind of cool to get those blogs transferred to WordPress so that they are in with the rest of my blog.  I think what I will do is copy each post’s content as a new post on the date that it was originally posted, but 4 years later.  In other words, in 5 days (november 10), I will copy the 2005 myspace blog and post it here.  One concern I have about that is that I would need a for-sure way to make it obvious that it’s an old post.  I’ll figure it out.  If you have any ideas, please share.
