His bark is worse than his bite.

Well, the good news is I feel a bit better.  Not coughing as much.  No fevers, no chills.  Just sitting here chilling trying to learn CSS.  I didn’t sleep much last night cuz of coughing though.  And I failed miserably on first attempt at napping.  Then second attempt at napping was interrupted by Mojo going nuts cuz he heard something outside.  Mojo likes to bark, he’s not yippy like a lot of Chihuahuas, he barks a real bark considering he is only 7.5 lbs it’s pretty impressive.


Learning CSS isn’t going so well for me.  I watch the video, I try to follow along, my html and style sheets look just like the ones from the teacher.  Why in the hell won’t mine work?  I am not a complete neophyte to the web design world, this should come easy for me.  I’m too far out to blame it on chemo brain.  I blame it on sloppy coding on my part.  I have a tendency to miss a lot of > keys.  That means the thought doesn’t close and it screws everything after it up.  I’m sure if I take a short break I can go back and find my mistake and get it right.  UGH.  Should be easy.


The last thing on the video that the instructor said was “Get it, Got it, Good.  See you in JavaScript.”  Eek.  I am still back in CSS 101.  But it’s all good.  I am sure I know what I need in CSS for JavaScript, if I do need something.  Confused.  Teach me to try to learn from a series of videos.


Way back when, I had created  desert-rat <dot> net.  (that url goes to someplace I don’t have permission to see now) I did everything I wanted to do on that site purely in html (there was no CSS then).  The only resource I used was a 13 year old girls page where she explained it all for us older (I was 21ish) folks.  Now to make a good website you have to use HTML, CSS, and apparently JavaScript.  So, I breezed thru the html part of this video series.  Heh, CSS not so.


Glutton for punishment me signed up for next class in the series, ADVANCED WEB  DESIGN.  It said it was for intermediate web developers.  Well, after I finish the first class (got a lot to go) I should be able to handle the second one (HA HA HA).  The good news is, I have forever to take the 2nd class, so if I don’t feel I am ready I can’t just put it off.


I want to be outside, it’s a gorgeous day, but alas, I am sure the minute I go out the door <COUGH COUGH COUGH>.  I said I was feeling better.  Not well.  But better.  Mama Campbell didn’t raise any stupid children, I am not gonna try outside yet.


it’s 3 o’clock and I haven’t eaten anything except a couple handfuls of Gummi Peaches.  Well, I am not hungry.  I wonder what Teresa is going to bring home for dinner.  I hope we can agree on something we both like.  What I am really in the mood for is lasagna, not just any lasagna… the world’s greatest lasagna.  But it takes too long to make, so it can’t be done on a weekday.  Maybe I can convince Teresa to go to the store and get the stuff for it.  She still is a little on the sick side too, so she will probably say she isn’t up to going to the store and I totally understand.


It still feels kind of weird logging back into WoW.  I quit with zero intention of ever going back.  I guess I never should have said never.  A good portion of my characters were booted from their guilds which was not surprising.  All that guild rep down the drain.  Heh.  I deleted a few characters that I was never going to play last night, and I am probably going to delete more today/tonight.   Perhaps I will get to play Pugno with Teresa’s Death Knight tonight, if we are collectively feeling up to it.  She knows this new expansion fairly well.  I quit like 2 days after the expansion went live.  I still don’t like the Legion expansion, but I am gonna play it, cuz my wife asked me to… sorta.


OK, I couldn’t pick a single song to post today.  So here is WatchMojo’s worst cover songs.
