Out Playing

The country cousins are in town and we are off Wednesday, I got us all tickets to the Lego monuments exhibition at the National Building Museum (which is a cool place to visit in its own right.)    I can’t wait to see the Lego St. Louis Arch and the rest of it!

I am wearing a special scent right now, it’s called … here, let me look at the label … Icy Hot.  That would sound so much more chic in French.  What would that be?   Chaud glacé? Is that correct?   I actually love the smell of Icy Hot, although it pretty much eliminates the perfume option.  Don’t worry, just some minor soreness in one shoulder, the body’s still adjusting to the yoga.  Oh!  I went to class (for a change) at lunchtime today instead of the morning class.  The studio’s located right over a Chinese restaurant and my mouth was watering the whole time.  I restrained myself and did not run downstairs and order; I came home and had tomatoes from a friend’s garden along with some cheese and was just as happy.

In comments today – if you’ve been waiting for weeks or months for me to get back to you regarding an unanswered question, or an issue I said I was going to address, or there’s one you want to raise – here’s your chance! Regarding the site errors – the reason some of these things still aren’t fixed is I can’t find a person who’s a genius at WordPress to fix them.  I don’t know why the emoticons don’t work in your comments any more, and the nice guy who moved our site and set it back up can’t modify the template so that, for instance, our names appear at the top of each post.  This is supposed to be an automatic feature, but it doesn’t work when we add the plugin widget or whatever it’s called.  Shrug.  I know as much about open source coding as I do about Urdu and astrophysics, so until we find that Special Someone, it’s going to stay broken.  I miss your deployment of the emoticons!

    I envy you your Legos. I would give up emoticons forever, for a data-entry guy/gal who could encode all 1704 of these entries….


    okay, back to work.

    xo >-)

    Hey March,

    In defense of Lord Geek, he’s leaving on vacation today, and will be back after Labor Day. Hopefully, once he returns, he will be re-invigorated and up to tackling all the naughty gremlins.

      Hey, no criticism intended. :)>- He’s done everything he said he was going to do. He installed the plugin that is the correct one and it doesn’t work, which isn’t his fault.

    No emoticons?
    You mean I have to rely on…words and punctuation?
    It might be easier for me to construct the Angkor Wat out of Legos…

    As for your cute smokin’ avatar chick, she appears at the bottom on the regular page, but disappears when I click on comments. I can still see your fabulous prose, however.

    Urdu and astrophysics? The names of pets on animated television shows, right?

    Dang, girl, your French is rocking now-musta been our junket to Paris.. ; )

    Ooooh, have blast at the museum-and if allowed, take and share the pics. Buckethead will be in heaven!
