My mom thinks I'm crazy, and she's probably right! I'm going to see Jennie this weekend, but I'm not leaving Dallas until Saturday afternoon. Jennie is in this drug study thing for Flonase to make some extra money for skool and she doesn't get out until Sunday morning around 7. I'm going to go pick her up at the study facility and we're going to get kolaches and donuts at Daylight Donuts! I miss her so much and I can't wait to see her. I'm glad she decided to do the study, because that extra money will be really good for her to have but I really hate not being able to see her on weekends. So this crazy trip that will have me in Austin for around 12 hours and driving about 8 hours round-trip is more than worth it for me. I need to see her!!!

Well, technically the Opera web browser works for editing blogs. Unfortunately that doesn't mean that its very good for that purpose, only technically viable. The text boxes the browser gives you for entering the information are extremely small and therefore very difficult to work with. As I write this, I'm looking at two lines of text (of about 4 words each) that I can actually fit inside the text box. Of course if I scroll up, the rest is still there, but it would be nice to be able to see more text...especially when editing the HTML/javascript in the template!!!!
Its just not fair!! I don't want to use Internet Explorer to edit my blog template, but I have to. Unfortunately, Mozilla likes to eat some of the template code so I am forced to use another browser for that purpose. Perhaps Netscape 6 or something else will work better in that regard, but I have yet to try it. On a happier note, I managed to get my blog looking like I want it to and still have room for the text in the right-hand column to stay on its own line. It turns out that I was making the area within the column bigger but not making the column itself bigger, and oddly enough that didn't work too well. :-P
