Special Sauce

Ok. I have a few ranty things, and at least two ravey things to kick out to ya today.

1. Still no word from Boy-o. Maybe he really IS in the obits. I'm reserving judgement on the lad until I hear from him (if I hear from him) today.

1a. You guys rock. Massively. Thanks for cheering me up, and telling me your own stories. That made me feel a lot better, and MWN, I swear to Elvis I wasn't laughing when I read your story. Well, maybe a tiny bit, only because I can only imagine the flaming daggers of rage that had to have been shooting from your eyeballs the next day (and during). Egads, that's the worst. Birthday. Ever.

2. How 'bout them Steelers? Hee! Our JV crew beat Buffalo. I love it. Fifteen and One is a beautiful, beautiful thing.

3. Dannon Light and Fit Cherry Vanilla Yogurt is swell. It is, in fact, better than ice cream. (It's only minorly starchy, and doesn't taste like yogurt at all. Huzzah.)

4. As soon as I can figure out that whole "links in my side nav bar" and "button adding" I'm doing it. I'm working on being a smart little webmonkey. In the meantime, I do love Stitchy McYarnPants. Good stuff. (link will come tonight)

Until then... no news is good... news?

I haven't figured out the button thingy but let me know if you want my lameass attempt at a link tutorial.

Yeah, you're right about worst b'day ever. On the other hand, from what my friends tell me, it was the best party ever.

Still not bitter. Really.

Actually, to make it even worse, the following year I was still feeling a little bruised so I decided to keep it low-key and just make dinner plans with my ex-roommate. Yup, you guessed it: she stood me up for dinner on my birthday. That's two years in a row. Unbelievable. In retrospect, the ex-roomie and Scott are probably the two flakiest people I know, and I really knew better than to make important plans with them. On the other hand...nothing really needs to be said here, does it?

Bitter and rage filled, party of one, your table is waiting...

Aggh, that is the worst birthday ever.
Unless you're the Artist and your birthday usually falls on Thanksgiving...he never gets to party because he's stuck with his Nana.
Still not as bad as that, though.

I need lame-ass link tutorial too because I don't understand the blogger interface.

Okay, this might or might not make sense. I'm really bad at this and figured it out by trial and error. I'll explain it in simple enough terms that it would have made sense to me...pardon me if it's too basic. :-)

1. When you're looking at your blog, click on the blogger symbol at the top left corner of your page.
2. Log in, blah blah blah.
3. Near the top of the screen you'll see a tab that says "template". Click there.
4. It will take you to a bunch of scary looking HTML code.
5. Scroll about two-thirds of the way down the page.
6. The line you're looking for says "begin sidebar". There should be a second line that says something about (div id="sidebar") and some other code.
7. You want to begin typing on the line after the div id="sidebar" and other code. You want to type the following: (li)(a href="insert website address")(insert name of website)(/a)(/li)

Here's the only thing: every time I put a ( or a ), you actually need to put a < or a >. Blogger won't let me type actual HTML code into this post so I had to substitute. Does that make sense?

Anyway, once you have done this, just click save changes and you should be good to go. If this doesn't make sense, just email me and I'll explain it more clearly.
