I feel rather deflated this evening. As a sort-of newbie to CSS and PHP, I feel like it’s an on-going battle trying to figure out the both of them so I can get cracking with my own WordPress theme. After copious amounts on Google, WPDesigner and other resource sites, I have decided to take a break and pick back up the fight when I have mentally prepared myself again. I get the basics and such but when I think I’ve finally got it, CSS bites me in the bum, laughs, points and says, “Haha, sucker!”. I’ve found really useful sites, I just feel very tired now and can’t be bothered at all.
Moving on. I like bubble baths which I know is a bit random to put but seeing as I just had one, it seems very fitting to write about. Yet, I don’t know what to write about bubbles baths. Moving on. Again.
My new book came yesterday and I finished it this morning. I was gonna read the Pimpernelles book which, of course, I had already started but Queen of Babble gets Hitched by Meg Cabot looked so sparkly and I love a good old love story too. I’ll only quote a bit of the blurb as it is rather long.
… the best man, with whom Lizzie might once accidentally have slept – no, really, just slept – announces his total lack of support for the couple, a sentiment the maid of honour happens to second; Lizzie’s Midwestern family can’t understand why she doesn’t want her wedding in the family backyard; and her future French in-laws seem to be trying to lure the groom away from medical school and back into investment banking.
Is Lizzie really ready to embrace her new role as wife and mistress of Chateau Mirac?…
Phew, that was a lot to type. I really recommend this book if you just want a light read. It’s just your typical chick-flick, so maybe if you’re a guy – you might not enjoy it.. haha. Also, the grandmother will crack you up.
Anyway, as I’ve finished that I’ve read a little more of Pimpernelles – the French Revolution is so brutal! From what I’ve read (because I can’t remember doing the French Revolution in History – and if we did, I probably wasn’t paying attention, hence why I failed History on multiple occasions. I may have to Google about the Revolution after this) the rich and poor are basically two different worlds, in which the poor have to pay taxes and the rich don’t. Which so, quite frankly, is fudging unfair. Unsurprisingly, the poor have started to revolt. As much as I’m in favour of the poor, I do not condone the violent actions they take in revolting. Pitchforks? Bit extreme, don’t you think? So, anyway this is where the story takes off and the main character, Eugenie, has just escaped from the convent she had been sent to by her guardian because the poor had ransacked it and were holding the people hostage. Have they no shame? Breaking into such a sacred place? Gosh. Also, there is the pale assassin. Turns out he is the richest man in Paris. That and he likes to wear black gloves all the time – even when he’s inside. Pfft.
It’s just gone quarter to 8 and I’ve a sudden craving for rice. Guess what, there’s no rice left. What a greedy father I have. I shall have to cook some more… I have no care for how late it is. I will have my rice.
Anyone notice the new plugin? It show what I’ve recently listened to (it tends to change constantly because I listen to a lot of music) courtesy of Last.fm. It’s called Scrobbling, I think. All I know is that my iTunes and my iPod Touch is linked up to my Last.fm account via a program I had to download from the site and then with the help of the plugin it shows the music I’ve recently listened to. You can get the plugin yourself here.
I just had a mini fit because Tom Felton showed up on my TV screen. I had no idea he got interviewed for the iTunes Festival programme. Ah, he is very gorgeous. Anyone see his recent twitter?
Can he be any more adorable? I am infatuated. It’s disgusting. 🙂
I have such good reception on my TV tonight. This is good, Big Brother time. So much drama. 😀
