Taking my mind off of things...


And how do I do that most effectively? A NEW TEMPLATE!. Surprise. I hope everyone had a nibble of that chocolate. Now on to a brighter and very large font template. Better to see me with then .. heh. I had a hard time with this bugger, the html was so evasive in the coding I couldn't figure out where in the hell to put my stuff on the side bar. I will finish it off tomorrow. I know, the template was free, but why oh why do they centre all everything? I like my lists to be aligned to the left, not centered, it looks stupid. Got any ideas how I can recode that?

I love reworking a template, and spent all afternoon trying to find the perfect one, but by that time it was almost 4:00 PM.. and I hadda hustle. I will pop it up a notch or two when I get time.

Gord just got home. He had his tests done today, except for one. He has to take a popsicle stick and and smear his own shit on it, and put it in a bag. A sealed bag, thank god. But, as fate would have it, he can't do it tonight, because we are having fish. He has to eat chicken, turkey or tuna before doing the dirty deed. Plus some veggies, that are not on my menu tonight. I will try to comply with the menu tomorrow. And I want to take pictures of him smearing the popcicle sticks with his own shit, and putting them in the bag provided without getting anything on him.

After we talked about it for awhile, we decided to put a smear of Penny's shit on it. And see if they know the difference.

Sometimes, a laugh takes away the "whatever."
PS: Much later in the evening:

I noticed that blogger just upgraded everything and finished the beta version...very cool. It's fast and really great. You can keep your old template, so don't worry like I did to start off with. When they ask you to choose a template you can do that, but later you can "choose to revert back to your old one". Let me know if you want to know how to do it, but it's very easy. If you keep your old html template, you will not get some of the features that they have, but the only one I liked was being able to to insert pictures in your sidebar without any hassle. The rest of it seems to work fine with a template not made by blogger. And if you have a blogger template, it's great, you will have it all, but you will be asked to choose from a new list. They are all pretty much the same old stuff. You would have thought they would have been a little more creative...but...

AHHHHHH The dreaded Shit stick. I just will NOT do that. Put me to sleep and stick the hose up there, but no poopsicle sticks

Brenda said...

Ha! I've never heard of the shitsicle sticks before. I think that may be a good thing?

I'm sending an email with something to try to align your sidebar stuff.

I love this new template Joan! Sending out good vibes to Gord. Interesting that he has to eat certain things before the test. Seems a little funny to me but what do I know, I'm not a doctor. :)

Medical tests can strip away all dignity and we just have to endure it. But we can laugh about it and make a joke of it. Still, ---no dignity. We have to get used to it, if we have any medical problems. Good luck to Gord.

I like this template, very wintry and cool.

Pictures of poop on a stick? Ew.

I just hope I don't have to stick out my hiney again at the doctor's tomorrow. I'm very bashful about stuff like that.

It's purty in here : ) I love how you like to change things around so much. Do you constantly re-arrange the living room too? I would if I could but our furniture is too heavy ('cause I'm only wee, ya know -- HA!).

I think I'd rather smear a poosicle stick than poo on one of those plastic dealies and pick up the whole thing. And while we're on the whole doing stuff for the doctor thing, can someone please invent a bigger cup for women to provide urine samples with? Sheesh.

I hope all will be well with your best mate, Joan.

This Okie will not comment on the 'sticks'. I do wish you and Gord a very merry Christmas and do hope all the tests come out okay!!!
Always a joy to come here and read and spend time..
Happy Holidays!!

Mary Lou...nuttin better than shit on a stick...they don't really stick the stick in, but you knew that ...but a hose Lordy! Well, maybe a everyone needs a flush job now and again.

....

Brenda, Got your email...tried it, didn't work, but there has to be other kind of workarounds, and I will find it. I have tried that with other templates and couldn't get it to work, but I will keep trying,...only because I like the challenge.

....

Andie, I guess the testers want you to eat certain stuff that will show up on a test. I'm givin him you vibes:)

Nancy, Hi!!..yes it all comes down to that one day in our life, when we have to put our feces on a popsicle stick.. and bring it into the doctors office without trying to laugh.

...

Ellen, if you have to do the dirty deed, try not to fart. Doctor's have enough on their hands without that:)

Leslie, In the olden days, (5 years ago) I used to rearrange my entire house every season. Poor Gordon never knew where things were after a week-end of moving crap. One day the TV would be here, the next..over there. Sofa here, sofa there. One thing I didn't move around as much was the bedroom furniture, because we have a waterbed, but I did do it 2 times!! But, now I'm pretty much over that.

....

Lu..thanks and the same to you sweetie.
