I have been putting some serious thought into changing my blog look. I've been to a few blogs lately that have inspired this idea: granni
, la diosa
, and allie
; just to name a few. I'm just ITCHING to change my look! But that means changing a whole lot of other stuff too. Do I want to take the time to do it? I think I'm ready for a change so I think the answer to that question is yes. It's worth the time. What inspires people to change the look of their site?? Maybe the same thing that inspires people to rearrange furniture in their homes? (I hope you stick around to see what I come up with.........it may be a while but I am working on it.) Meanwhile, all you bloggers out there; keep inspiring me!!!!
I got me a lil draggy........ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Maybe I should go to bed! Anyway, I found this place
thanks to grumbleeze
. I saw she had one on her site and I wanted one; so I got one. Aren't they cute? Oh, it's over there to the left in case you were wondering..........
WELL! Good news! My mood has changed already. I did some blog-surfing and look what I found! If you like cats, you just have to see this video
. I found it at Karen's blog
. Go take a look! Goodnight! (I always like to retire for the night in a GOOD mood.)
I just haven't felt like blogging today......don't know why really. I found out that my stepson is coming home tonight for the weekend and has to be back to North Carolina by Monday. I don't know how long he'll be there, but he's basically done; no more obligation to go overseas. The 'family' is having a big shindig for him; of course the big sister is involved in that one. She's the one making the phone calls (to everyone he's ever met once in his life) and even rented a sign to put out by the road; you know, one of those big signs that lights up? From what I understand, she's invited EVERYONE in the family. Oh, I think she forgot to include her little sister again; an oversight? I doubt it. (what a good subject for last week's photo friday
challenge: 'overlooked.') It's not that I wanted to drag my kid out there; it's just the point that her own sister can never include her in anything. THAT'S why my daughter did not invite her big "sister" to her graduation dinner. And it was from no influence on my part either. My kid has a mind of her own and the only sibling she wanted to invite to her graduation dinner can't make it because he'll be on his way back to North Carolina that day. Yeah, I know it's a step-family thing but these people are actually blood-related! I guess that brings a quote I blogged about a while ago to mind: "Treat your friends like family, and your family like friends." Some people don't even know what the true meaning of a friend is! (Well, I thought I didn't feel like blogging; I lied.) Anyway, I'm going to try to see my stepson this weekend at some point, at least so he can see his little sister. A lot of people have been getting on my nerves lately it seems. I guess the older I get, the more I see people for who they are. It's not always a pretty sight. I DO try to see the good in people; I really do. But when that good is buried so deep under the bad, I just don't feel like wasting my time searching for it. It's just sad that a young lady my daughter's age can't even look up to her older sister as a role model. That's ok too because she's got all kinds of role models on my side of the family. Enough, enough............on to some memes.

The rainforests are important to the earth's ecological balance. What are some things we can do to help preserve the rainforest?
The first thing that came to mind when I read this question was that I bought t-shirts from "Human-I-Tees" a few years ago. I guess a percentage of the profit from the t-shirt sales goes to helping save the rainforests. I'm not sure exactly what's all involved in preserving our rainforests, but I think recycling helps. I do recycle. So, please don't think I'm less than intelligent after reading my answer. Hey, at least I answered it!
1. What's your favourite animal?
I guess I would have to say cats. I have two and I enjoy it most of the time. They're cute and for the most part, low maintenance.
2. What's your favourite boy's name?
Hmmmm. Never really thought of it much. But I can tell you that if I would have had a boy, his name would have been Alexander. But we only picked that name after realizing that there was a possibility that I wouldn't have a girl and we better come up with a name just in case. And that takes me to the next question.
3. What's your favourite girl's name?
Enjoy your weekend! Travellers; travel safe!!

Todays idea comes from a calendar called "Bright Ideas, 365 Creative Thinking Activities"
We've all heard the saying, "You are what you eat." What if that saying suddenly came true! What possible problems might be created, or on another note, what might be some humorous changes that might occur?
I would be scaring people off the street! I can't decide if I would be a big dorito or a big ol' round bagel........actually I do eat salads on a regular basis so maybe I'd be a chef salad! Can you imagine a bunch of food items walking the streets? We sure wouldn't be able to lie about what we had for dinner.......hey, that would be kind of interesting; you change into whatever it is you ate last. I bet we'd be a bit more careful of what we put into our mouths! The problems that could occur? You would not know what you friiends would look like from day to day. But you sure would know what they ate!
Very interesting question today.
Yipppeeee! Templates are working! I was just about to post this and then decided to call my Mom
first cuz I was so excited. She told me she thought they were working earlier and changed something in her template and it never took. That was earlier in the afternoon.........I changed something just now and it published it. Now I feel obligated to make the changes I was wanting to make yesterday. (Do I have enough time?) Actually, this has inspired me to make some major changes in my blog..........THAT will require some time though, so I think I'll wait. In the meantime, I gotta answer some memes............
Treasure: Internet Explorer (can't live without this one.)
Try It: AOL (Just because I wanted to trash Netscape)
Trash: Netscape (From what I hear, this is trash!)

Do you garden? Why or why not? How do you feel about fresh grown vs. store bought fresh? Do you think there are advantages to growing your own veggies? What about flowers?
I don't garden anymore just because I don't really have the space to do it. Fresh grown stuff is DEFINITELY better! That is one advantage; the other is that you can go right outside your door and pick whatever it is you want to eat! Oh, plus it's WAY cheaper! Flowers? I DO plant flowers around here. They brighten up the yard and it makes me happy.
I hope granni
is right; about Blogger, that is. Well it's back to work today! I guess that's not all bad. I had a wonderful long weekend (5 days) but by yesterday I was a little fidgety. Guess what I did? I ironed all the clothes in my baskets; something I just 'never have the time' to do otherwise. Gotta go! I hope the templates are working by tonight!
Is anybody else having the same problem as I am with blogger? First, my template was blank when I went there and now it has all the old stuff on it. Two of my blog pages have this message: "Sorry, your template was not found on the server. If you just created this blog, click the "choose a new template" link above and select your template again. If you continue to recieve this message (or this is not a new blog), please try back later and/or contact firstname.lastname@example.org." Ain't that grand?!?!? So, this means I cannot change anything right now. I'm not real happy. You know, I've been thinking about changing blog places; maybe this is the time to do it? That would suck though, cuz I would have to change all my links, etc. Let me know if you're having the same problem.....
Got this from bryn
, who got it from shirl
...........just had to find out my 'color spectrum.'
||What is my spectrum?|
I am red: My main color is red. This means I am goal oriented. Success is important to me. Achievment is the marker of a great life.
|What is my spectrum?|
I participated in photo friday
yesterday, thanks to granni
, who decided to participate first. It was pretty interesting. I think I'll continue......didn't take MY photo until around midnight but it's there nonetheless. Oh, wanna know where you can find it? here
...........the rest of that blog so far is just my 'average day' for the MayDay Project. I decided (also with granni's help) that I will keep that blog for a 'photoblog.' Cool idea, eh? I'm using the new blogger layout/template thingy they're trying to go to; it takes some getting used to but I already learned a new thing. It's funny how you use the same codes a lot and when you run into something unfamiliar, it's a bit discouraging. But between my daughter
and me, we figured it out. Okay.......gotta go shopping for the kid soon. Tomorrow we will be in Muskegon for my nephew's recital. I'm looking forward to hearing him play the piano. He's GOOD!!! In the meantime, gotta get all my bloggin' done for the day! Later!
Please visit colleen's blog
and read her post for Friday, May 23rd. She asks a very good question. Why do some blogs (some of them even boring in my opinon) get so many comments and others don't? Is it who you know? Is it what you write about? Is it the length of your entry? She's got a link to someone's blog and this person gets anywhere from 30 to 100-something comments for every entry. YOU tell US why!?!!?? Leave a comment on her blog and maybe together we can figure this thing out........eh?
I thought this was quite interesting; taken from my horoscope calendar.......
...is the third sign of the zodiac and governs, among other things, all forms of communication, social interactions, and self-expression. It is ruled by Mercury, and its element is air, demonstrated through the Gemini's intellect and powers of reasoning. Its quality is mutable, which signifies those who are malleable, amenable, or adaptable; in the yearly cycle, it indicates the shift between two seasons. When the Sun is in Gemini, spring becomes summer. As the Sun moves through Gemini, the following energies predominate, affecting the way people relate to one another:
Notable positive qualities associated with Gemini:
Versatile, curious, extremely clever, stimulating, inventive, articulate in both oral and written communication, dual personality
Notable not-so-positive qualities associated with Gemini:
Inconsistent, impatient, scattered, difficult to rein in, impractical, dual personality
(I think some of that is actually true. How very interesting!) AND one more thing I'd like to say: THANK YOU to everyone who sent birthday wishes my way on my special day!
Guess what I found at blograffiti
Made for me from my MOM
!!!! Thank you! (too bad more people don't draw cute stuff like that on that site; way to much "f" words on there....)

"Joy comes from within." Do you feel you are joyful, why or why not? Or, just comment on the quote.
I think for the most part I am joyful. I always try to think positive and when I think positive, positive things seem to happen. I try to look on the bright side of things; look at the good in people (don't get me wrong, it doesn't always work); you'd be amazed how one's attitude can change how we view the world and how we view our own lives.......therefore either bringing more joy to ourselves or less joy..........we have a choice.
I just check out the 'shout out' box at random questions; random days
cuz I participated and put my comment up; found someone else who participated as well and I always like to check out other people's answers so I clicked on her link. By the way, her name is annie
. I read through some of her posts and found out that she recently moved her whole blog to a different place. While I was there, I found some neat links; one of them being tilemachine
. You gotta check it out! You can draw little things pixel by pixel. It gives you all the colors to choose from and you click on a color and click on a pixel and it puts it there! It's really cool! I haven't saved mine yet, but it said you could save it for future use as a background, a wallpaper, etc. I'm going to add the link to my list of faves soon! Thanks annie
! Now, back to more fun!!
Guess what I did all weekend? Well, not ALL weekend, but SOME of it; I made some blog signs
and some blinkies
. I need a life! To be honest with you, it was fun. I did other things too. I mean, I didn't just sit here at the computer and create things all weekend. But I was kind of excited cuz I figured out how to make a new kind of blinkie. You can see it over there to the left; the 'blinkies and butterflies' one. Ain't it cool? (don't get your undies in a bunch all you English majors out there.) That's the way I talk sometimes........don't you? I was also excited because I checked out pariah's meme list
and saw that Random Questions; Random Days
is on there now! Yeah!!! I almost mispelled 'random' and made it 'ransom.' OOOPS!! "ransom questions".....not a very appealing name. BUT tha's not the name of it, so go check it out. There's a question almost every day to answer. It's fun! PLUS, you can find all kinds of ideas to blog about, links to 'blog extras' and even an interactive forum. AND you can add your site to their list! What better way to get your blog out there to be seen, eh???? I did it! Ok. Gotta go; almost midnight (which is early for me but I'm a bit tired) and tomorrow is Monday. Goodnight!
I just spent some time "surfin' blogs" and I found some very interesting sites. But two of them stand out above the rest. I love to see lots of links on people's blogs. The other thing I like to find is lots of useful code info. I was at bryn's
place and first of all, I saw that she added a link to my blinkies
site. Thanks so much! BUT, she has all kinds
of links on her page (matter of fact, that's how I found the second site I'm going to share with you.) You should go check out her site. It's really neat. The other site I found; mandarin design
; has lots of codes for bloggers. I LOVE to find cool codes! It has a bunch of other stuff I found interesting too. So go pay that place a visit if you're doing some 'blog surfing.' (I blogrolled them both so you can find them WAY down at the bottom of the left-hand column here.) I may write another tutorial this weekend. I have to have some hours to spare because I don't want to start it and not be able to finish it all in one sitting. It takes concentration. Until later..........have a great weekend!
I have TWO days of Random Questions; Random Days
to do.............(I'm in the process of moving all my blinkies to *~*blinkies*by*otto*~*
.) ANYWAY.......Here is yesterday's and today's questions:
Thursday, May 15: Do you bite your nails? Shake your leg? Or do you have any nervous habits? If so, what are they? Does it help? If not, how do you relieve stress?
I don't bite my nails; I don't shake my leg; I don't know if I have a nervous habit. None that I can think of. How do I relieve stress? I don't know.....(this is a hard question. wah, wah, wah.) I don't have any little 'wierd' habits but it's not to say I don't have any
habits. I do. I'm going to answer the question for today now, ok?
Friday May 16! I found the following quote in my daily calendar. There is no author noted, but I thought it would be a good thought to comment on. So...
"Of all best things upon the earth, a faithful friend is the best." Write a bit about your best friend, how did you become friends, etc...
My best friend? I don't have too many "friends." I have lots of aquaintances, but few true friends. But I'm not complaining; just stating a fact. My best "friend" (not in the family) is a woman I met about 14 years ago. We went to the same church and the pastor 'stuck' us in the same faith-sharing group. She later told me that she did not want to be in the group with us because of some things she had heard about me. (my stepdaughter has a big mouth and she can be kind of a 'problem.') Well, we were put in the same faith-sharing group despite her feelings about it. We used to meet at her house (because her husband was disabled and it was easier to meet there so we could include him) once a month and talk about religious stuff. Some of her so-called friends abandoned her after her husband got hurt (didn't know how to "deal with it.") I never knew him before he got hurt and even if I did, I wouldn't have abandoned her and him. Ok, back to the faith-sharing group thing: Actually, it was kind of fun and interesting. We kept our group together until we got news that our church was going to merge with four other churches and become one parish. It was a difficult transition, but through it, we kept our faith and we got to be good friends. Her husband died a few years ago and she has since remarried and divorced. I am friends with her still today and probably always will be. We don't always agree on thigns; matter of fact we don't agree on a lot of things, but we support each other and respect each other. I guess the thing about friends is you should be able to tell them what you think without worrying if they are going to get mad and vice versa.
That was a good thought to blog about.
"A lecture is a process where information is passed from the notebook of the lecturer to the notebook of the student without necessarily passing through the minds of either."
Isn't THAT the truth!?!?! Of course this is unfortunate, but I think true. p.s. found this at blogger seeds
. Although I'm not a 'student' I can relate to that statement. As bookkeeper of the parish I work for, I am required to attend workshops, meetings, etc. periodically. In my case, I try to take it all in......but it's obvious to me during the meeting that several others have a different agenda: i.e. to just fulfill their obligation and get out! How do I know this? Because throughout the whole meeting, there are always people talking amongst themselves. I could never understand that; I'm there in hopes of actually learning something! This would not be under my 'useless meetings' category (you can find that under "pet peeves" on the left-hand side of my blog here.) AND I think this statement is referring to students (whose parents are probably paying for their education) sitting in class taking notes while the teacher lectures. Notes, notes, notes; it can get old awfully fast, but there's a reason for all this! I know! I've been there! Ok. Looking for a moral? (so am I.) LISTEN to your teachers! Don't just HEAR! LISTEN! gotta go! goodnight all!
Random Questions; Random Days
Today's question ... How do you like to spend your down time? What would your dream vacation be?
Lately I spend my down-time on the computer.....I love doing stuff on the computer. I'm actually working on a new project right now. I'll post it when I have enough done to post. My dream vacation? I haven't been anywhere 'exotic' so I couldn't even guess where I would think the "ideal" place would be, but it would definitely be somewhere by the water! I love the water; there's just something about it that is serene, especially at sunset. And of course it would have to be a place where I could relax if I wanted to, go site-seeing if I wanted to........
I'm happy to say that my friend is doing fine. Sorry about the whining. I am not the most patient person in the world (far from it really.) If you know that, you will appreciate this more......I got a call from my friend who lives 5 houses down the street last night saying, "It's happening again." I knew exactly what she was talking about because for the last three weeks they've been doing every allergy test they can think of to try and figure out what caused her allergic reaction three weeks ago. It wasn't just your average allergic reaction. The last time she had this happen, she was at work (at the hospital) and she got all red, puffy, itchy, and her blood pressure went all the way down to 50 over something. Kind of scary. So they have her one of those kits that she had to have with her at all times in case it happened again. She gave herself the shot and we SPED to the hospital. She says, "Now if I pass out....." I interrupted her, "Hey, before you pass out, tell me exactly what I have to do cuz I am useless otherwise." She said, "Just get me to the hospital." "I can do that," I said. The hospital is only five minutes away (given good conditions) thank God. We get there and they took all her vital signs, etc. You know the procedure. THEN put her on a bed and wheeled her into the hallway because they had no rooms available. We were out there for 2 hours. (A half hour after being there, she appeared to be doing fine.) They finally put her in a room and we waited another hour for the doctor to come and take a look at her. When they finally released her at 10:15 p.m. (remember I have NO patience!) they gave her a prescription for the same kit that she had to shoot herself with. We proceeded to go to the nearest drugstore and found out they didn't have any of what she needed. (oh, boy!) That drugstore called another drugstore and this one said they had them. Well, the only drugstore open at 10:30 at night is halfway across town. We stopped at my house so I could tell my kid to wait up for me; I'd be home in less than a half hour. We get to the drugstore and they tell us we have to WAIT 20 minutes! (By this time I'm really having fun!) Anyway, we finally got the stuff, I dropped her off and went home (11:35 p.m.) I was glad to help her out; no question about that. But I was a tad bit upset with the fact that it burned my whole evening and my kid was sitting home all evening by herself. She wasn't bothered by it as much as I was. So, I had to check out some blogs, email, etc.; finally got to bed at 2:00 a.m. Got up this morning bright and early (6:15 a.m.) and actually funtioned fine at work! My friend is doing fine and she thinks she knows now what caused the horrible allergic reaction that she had a few weeks ago. Maybe they'll let her go back to work this weekend.
I REALLY need to go to bed but I have to say something real quick.......I wasn't home all night because I took a friend to the hospital............4 HOURS!!!!!!!!! MY WHOLE EVENING!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll be back to blog in the afternoon; you can count on it.
otto's average day
....I participated in the MayDay Project
and it was fun; even though I had a VERY average day. I think I'd do it again when it comes up. Originally, I was trying to think of all these fun things we could do on that day, but I didn't come up with anything, and that's ok cuz that wouldn't have been an average day.

I found a new Wednesday meme that is supposed to start on May 14th. It should be interesting............It's called What's On ...... Right Now?"
I haven't liked the questions from the other Wednesday ones lately, so......we shall see.
Random Questions.......Random Days
Yeah! I'm glad this was picked to be a random day!
Do you like games? If so, what kind, video, board, online, online interactive? Why?
I LIKE games! There is only one video game that my daughter has that I've been able to get into and it's old now but I still like it. That's "Mario Party 3." We both play at the same time (well, take turns.) But I haveen't really tried any of her new games so I could be liking some of those too. The other kind I like is those hand-held games. I got hooked on "Yahtzee" once and challenged myself to beat my high score; I have others too. Too many to name, but those are fun too when you don't have someone to play a game with. As far as computer games go; I have this program that has about 200 solitaire games on it but I only usually play about 3 of them. Those are good to play for some 'down time.' Internet games? I used to go to pogo all the time and play "Sweet Tooth" and "Solitaire" but I don't go there much anymore. I blog and work on websites now. But I still enjoy them. I really like playing games with other people too. Games we like to play: "Uno" ~ "Cranium" ~ "Catch Phrase" ~ "Skip-Bo"; just to name a few. Games are a good way to spend time with your family/friends. Good question!
So much blogging to do; SO late at night (actually it's morning). AND that brings me to another point. I've already started my 'MayDay Project.' See, it's really Saturday, May 10th right now. I did notice my camera is off by about a half hour. Don't know how THAT happened. ANYWAY, I'm excited! I'm excited for more reasons than one. First of all, I wrote my first tutorial today on my bravenet site
. I did it all this afternoon (and it was NOT easy either!) and I did it in Microsoft Word. Well, I wasn't quite sure how I was going to transfer the tutorial from Word to my website (outside of copying and pasting all the text and adding bold
tags, etc.) so I tried something. I figured, "Hey, what do I have to lose?" Of course I saved it as a word doc first but I then saved it as a web page. Then I clicked on 'view as html' (or something similar to that) and it showed me the html code for the page! I don't own my domain space so I had to upload all images to my free server
and change the name to all of them but it was really quite simple. (I do have one image at the bottom that won't show; don't know why.) All I am asking is if anyone is looking for a blinkie tutorial, to go to my site
and try it. I need to know if it's easy to follow. Please let me know if you've tried it and what you think. Second, I'm excited about the MayDay Project. BUT, my life is pretty ho-hum, boring, so I am trying to think of things we can do tomorrow that won't give that away. I guess we're supposed to just be 'normal' and take pics every hour no matter what we are doing. I just charged up my camera batteries and formatted a memory stick so I have plenty of space to take pics on. I'm READY! It'll be interesting to see what other people took pics of. I highly doubt I will take a picture of me waking up in the morning. eeeewwwww! That could scare you away! I just went to read my seeester's blog
and couldn't believe how many entries I've missed. Whether she knows it or not, she has a knack for writing. Gotta go to bed if I want to get up and start my 'ho-hum, boring' day! I like boring though. I'm pretty much a 'home-body.' Does that mean I'm old???? happy saturday...........happy blogging
If we do this right, a whole lot of people will get 'plugged' and it could be very interesting how many different blogs we'll eventually reach. I got this
. I found it to be, if nothing else, interesting.....true? I have to think about it. A couple things I don't agree with; but for the most part, very interesting.......................(p.s. if you do this, please do as I did and leave my link on your site and ask the next person to leave your link on their site and so on and so on.............ok?) I LOVE interaction! Ok. here is the results of what I've been rambling about for the past ??? minutes....(p.s. again......I am also copying her in that I will be 'exing' out the rest of my middle and last name......good idea I thought.)

*Random Question: Random Day
Who is the oldest person you can remember... and what do you remember about that person? How old was he/she?
The oldest person that I know that is still alive is my grandmother (on my Mom's side.) She's (I think) 87. And she's quite active. But I know this question implies it's someone that has passed because it is in the past tense. BUT I wanted to answer it this way too. So, there's my answer.
Click on the link above to see a different question posted every day (well, mostly every day). That's why it's called "Random Question: Random Day." Hey, I think it's a great idea! Plus, I've been looking for a new Wednesday meme to participate in! This is just perfect! Do it! Just do it! *good day*
I have to *plug* blogger seeds
again! AND pleeeeze visit the second page, more blogger seeds
too!! There is quite a list of cool places to visit! What kind of links can you find there, you ask? LOTSA neat stuff to add to your blog; LOTSA topics to blog about; LOTSA cool stuff! There's even an interactive comment board and a place where YOU can add your OWN blog link! What better way to get your name out there? SHARE!!! We LUV people who SHARE! Ok. I'm done. Anyway; I LUV the site myself.......(could ya tell?)
I've started a new website. It's in the very
beginning stage but if you want to check it out, go to: ~*~blinkies by otto~*~
. I'm going to use this to add more blinkies and I'll start a new page with links to sites I like to visit. Of course I'll link it to my other site but I won't be editing the other site anymore. It's a bit different from what I've become accustomed to as far as editing but it's easy now that I've figured it out. If you're looking for a free service to host your site, go to Bravenet
. Next Saturday I'll be participating in the MayDay Project
. It should be pretty fun. Most of my days seem quite uneventful but I think it'll be interesting to look back on a day in my life. Actually, today I had some fun. I went shopping with one of my sisters. We bought some CM stuff, then went to two of my favorite stores: Best Buy and Circuit City. I didn't buy anything but it was fun. I didn't really do much after that; just some grocery shopping, me and Alex went to the mall (again, didn't buy anything) and later went to borrow a video from a friend and visited with her and her granddaughter for a bit. We both fell asleep watching the movie but will pick up where we left off tomorrow..............
I was getting a little worried..............I wanted to blog last night and all I got was 'this page cannot be displayed.' Whoo! Thank goodness it's back! Of course now I don't feel like blogging..............no; I have to be somewhere.................is there such a thing as "typing dyslexia?" (sp?) I tend to turn two letters around a lot when I type too fast. I'm excited because I figured out how to do something that I tried a while ago and this time it worked. What am I talking aobut? A blinkie.............it's really quite cool. Go to otto's blinkies
. After several tries (and much thinking) I figured out how to make my blinkie letters not only hop on the blocks, but slowly roll into the blocks and disappear. Yeah!! Oh, the power of PSP!! Anyway, gotta go! *smile*
quick note to self: add another idea to blogger seeds
. THIS ($) will remind me of what I want to add.........................goodnight!
