WordPress upgrades

This weekend I’ll be installing the newest version of my beloved CMS, WordPress 2.5. Hopefully nothing will go wrong, but if it does, you’ll know why.

As always, thank you for taking time out of your life to read my ramblings, and welcome to the new visitors who’ve been trickling in!

Vegetables for the lazy!

So I’m on this “not-a-diet” wherein I’m not counting Weight Watcher points nor am I counting calories. I’m eating apples and 80cal snacks (ok, maybe I’m counting SOME calories) instead of Doritos and 3 Musketeer bars. I’m eating half of my usual gigantic dinner portions. And trying to move for 20 minutes a day straight. I’m not even weighing myself.

But you’ll be happy to know that I am still as lazy as ever.

Case in point…I need more vegetables in my life. But if I buy them fresh, they go bad. And canned veggies taste blah. And the huge frozen bags get freezer burned before we can eat all of it. And if I try to steam them myself, I end up with a screaming smoke alarm and a burned pot.

Which is why I’m in love with Birds Eye steamfresh veggies. They’re single portions of vegetables frozen in wee little plastic bags. You put one bag in the microwave for 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 minutes and you have perfectly steamed tasty veggies.

I found them at Wegmans. You can get sweet corn, sweet peas, or baby Brussels sprouts. Which I will never get because Brussels sprouts are just evil.

Man, that sounded like a commercial, didn’t it. But I’m not affiliated with Birds Eye. Or Wegmans. Or farms. So there.

By the way, this is day 14 without Mountain Dew.

Back to work with me!

Those lips! I’ve never had a dog with so much face before. He’s now 10 months old and is very happy, despite what his expression says.

Monday Monday

The Confirmation girl loved her gift card AND her necklace. So that’s a big “Yay!”

Hey! I finally updated the side graphics to match the butterflies. I re-installed the regular WordPress search, as the Google search really didn’t work for this site. Tweaked the sidebar a bit. I’m trying write my own WP template to display 2 left sidebars. The new hostess pic is actually being recycled from my World of Warcraft blog on the Courier-Post site. (WM got me the hat last Christmas – in WoW, if a character has a quest for you they have a big gold exclamation point above their heads.) Remember Freezerburned? I do too. Now that I’m eating Smart Ones on a daily basis again, I may dust it off. Time to make another push toward total web domination. (I kid.)

And I added my Twitters (I can’t call them Tweets) to the side. It took me over a year, but I’m really having fun with Twitter now.

Currently reading: The Faith Club. Books on deck are Reading Lolita in Tehran and Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Currently drinking: Arizona Diet Green Tea. It’s been 10 days since I’ve had “The Dew.”

Currently beading: Nothing. I’m toying with the idea of trying to create an illusion necklace. I have the clear transite cord, a ton of beads and a book with detailed instructions. No reason why I shouldn’t at least try.

Currently coding: At work, I’m going to be converting an 8 page sales flyer into a mini website. It’s exciting! I also did a very cool banner that I’ll show you once it starts running on the site. It even uses PHP!
