got around to messing with my journal layout. I found a nice one over at dreamwidthlayouts
, so here we are. There were a few problems with Photobucket, but I got it all figured out. I like it a lot, so yay.
Putting in the layout also gave me a chance to look into how Dreamwidth does their specific HTML tags; nice and easy to remember! I always get confused with LiveJournal's system, since I never remember which tag uses dashes or whatever (lj-user vs. lj user, for example).
Mother's Day came and went, and while I never did manage to make anything for my mom, I did find a few things at the store for her. I ended up buying her The Pursuit of Happyness, along with a movie theater-type bucket of pop-it-yourself popcorn and a pair of fuzzy aloe-infused socks. She liked it well enough, but I'm hoping to actually give her something handmade next year, though I honestly don't know what. Sigh.
This week has been pretty uneventful. My computer is partially borked due to something that managed to make it past my anti-virus, causing it to be unable to update and error randomly (which causes my browser to stop responding until I restart my PC). I also can't open my registry, and Google searches get randomly redirected to ad sites. It's a bit of a mess, but it'll hopefully get taken care of soon. As for now, my anti-virus is uninstalled and that's taken care of the issue temporarily. I can't say that I'm too comfortable with that, though. I feel like I'm running around naked on the internet.
Oh! I also picked up Grand Ages: Rome the other day. It's a pretty fun game, though definitely more of a city builder than RTS. The graphics are lovely, and I love being able to zoom right down to street level and watch my citizens go about their daily lives.
I'm also playing catch-up on Animal Crossing: City Folk. I barely played the second half of April and all of May due to the grass deteriorating so quickly. This week I caught myself up to May 1st by doing a log in/log out for a few game days, and then running around collecting fruit and stuff to sell for a game day (along with writing letters to everyone). I made sure to play around on the game's holidays; Bunny Day was a waste, but at least I made some extra cash by selling the furniture. I'll probably catch myself up the rest of the way this weekend.
