Because any post in a blog

is better than no post at all, isn't it?

Still working my butt off - next on the BIG LIST is build a web site for uber-business.

To test myself on it, I played with my family's cattle website all day today. No, not going to link here, otherwise you might try to ring all my family members to find me. I prefer elusive as a tone in the blogworld.

Thats right. I played with html and css. All. Day.

Didn't even get my fix of Dr Phil. Actually, didn't get my fix of much as I tend to go for immersion when working in geekdom. So no lunch, no coffee, no leaving the frigging chair for a few hours.

Hnece I am cross-eyed and can't hold a conversation in human languages. A problem when a chatty 8 year old arrives home. I needed to access coffee (and a muesli bar) for that.

Have to right it before my mother comes to visit in a few hours half hour. Will try to do that by immersing myself in that few hours (eek) half hour of housework I have been threatening for weeks.

In other news. No - we haven't planned anything new for the wedding. No - we haven't got rid of lurgy, although it has moved from the sinuses (yay) to the chest (urgh).

Through doing some work for some friends, I have negotiated a "between visits to Granite Glen" horseriding opportunity for 'Salina. She is pleased with my efforts, and proudly sports a new helmet and riding boots (thanks to Grandpa Stjep's sending some money and some of the wages Pagi ruins enhances her economy with).

Tonight is taco night - yay!!

By the way - some time between now and Thursday I have to create an entertaining and insightful post for the blog that Aussie Bloggers Forum run - because they foolishly wisely have included me as part of their moderation team. Despite promises of hazing newbies, I haven't actually seen any moderating action. (because I am slow on the uptake, perhaps?)

Apparently you don't have to be an Aussie or even a Blogger to join, and there is heaps of blogging info over there - you should check it out! (But please don't test my hazing skills!)

Just don't become the Simon Cowel (probably spelled wrong, don't watch the show)of the blog world.

On a side note: NO COFFEE?!!!! Boy. I didn't know you were a masochist. *shudder*

I too am very busy and I too have content to write for my blog and Aussie bloggers (although the latter is nearly done).

You gotta take a break to drink, even just to watch a bit of Dr Phil.

Hope you enjoyed taco night! Yay!

My turn to make you a cuppa and let you take the weight of - even if it's just for a moment.

Take care :)

Debby - I would NEVER become Simon Cowell - possibly a bit Dicko-ish (the Aussie Idol version). I didn't mean to punish myself so.

Jen - at least yours is now there in draft...

Alison - thanks love.
