I finally got around to messing with my journal layout. I found a nice one over at [community profile] 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.

We ended up doing some grilling today since the weather was so nice. Ness manned the charcoal, but he made sure to step back when it came time to actually cook the food; I think he was afraid of killing us both via food poisoning or something.

Anyway, while I was making dinner (turkey burgers on toasted kaiser rolls - quick, simple, and yummy), he attempted to take a picture of a rabbit that hangs around the neighborhood. He didn't have much success.

After dinner, we decided to grab a couple of flurries from McDonald's and sit at the lake for awhile. It seemed like everyone had that idea, so we weren't there for very long. It was also starting to get a little chilly at that point, so we headed home to play a round of Battle for Middle Earth II. Fun times.

All in all, it was a pretty uneventful Sunday. We'll probably have more to do next weekend with Mother's Day and all that.

And speaking of Mother's Day, I still don't know what I'm going to do for my mom. I don't want to give her a flower since I gave her one for her birthday a couple weeks ago. I might do a crochet bag or something, but I'm not sure what yarns I have left in my stash. Perhaps sorting through that can be a chore for tomorrow, eh?
