Honey, I'm back!

Posted by Jerry Fri, Jun 24 '05

At this point of writing I could almost picture this cliched scene straight from some mediocre-budget Wild West movie: View panned in on a pair of old worn-out leather boots, going a 'thud. crack-thud’ on dry sand and scorched gravel, with nothing but a strong breeze grazing sand dunes seen for miles… (Oh wait, there aren’t any sand dunes in the American desert) desert wastelands and cacti and tumbleweeds seen for miles. And a crooken little wooden hut right in the middle of this desolated looking picture. And this, my dear reader/viewer, was once the home of our brave, and once young, male protagonist…

(cough) Sorry, got carried away abit, Literary Mind up there hasn’t had a chance to stretch and move around a bit for awhile it got too excited. :P

Sooo how should this go…

(thunder rolling on a dark night) And so I return to blog. ph34r! (lightning flash! thunder clap!)

Nah, too dramatic. Or shall I quote Jim Carrey in Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events? ... Nah, not that I have the movie script, or even the book, handy at this moment anyway. Perhaps I should just write it in honest, plain words then. Ah, that would be best for the occasion.

And so, dear readers, I have just decided to continue blogging once again.

(Phew. That wasn’t so hard.)

And I haven’t bothered to write for, what, a year or two? Not counting the filler posts of course. My tagboard has expired, the template looks off in Firefox, and the description in 'who am i’ is also terribly off (At times when I read it I simply can’t help chuckling to my own over-self-inflated internet ego, hah), I don’t even use ICQ any more, and worst, after all these years and lack of practice my writing style has all but deteriorated… /ohnoes!

But then, oh god, now that I think of it, I seriously need to brush up my rusty HTML skills. Not to mention ready my gut for the dreaded 5-step process to fixing the template:
1. Edit HTML. Save.
2. Click Refresh in Browser.
3. Gasp in horror as tables go insanely out of proportion.
4. Go to 1. Rinse and repeat.
That is just so turn-off.

In other news, I’m still waiting for Cyberlynx to give me a call on that darn university letter issue. It’s 3pm already for god’s sake…

3.10pm: At least template doesn’t look sandwhiched now. Yay. =)
3.20pm: Renewing blogrolls. Sorry guys. (eeyean, aewis, paul, teddybwear, lionel, celine, keep in touch! If you still remember me that is. =P)
3.30pm: New flooble. The new pop ups are just terrible. Time to reconsider a tagboard provider.
4.00pm: wbloggar working like a charm. Now that’s what I call out-of-the-box user-friendliness!
9.00pm Added quick-commenting in individual posts, reorganized here and there… and we’re done! The white-and-gray interface is kind of… odd now that I think of it, but meh, I’ll leave that for another day. Now… let’s see, what’s for dinner…
