heartbreak, old friend, goodbye it's me again [userpic]
I don't know what you do but you do it well, I'm under your spell

After meeting up with [info]bewarethesmirk for a lovely bit of coffee/tea and chatting this morning, I came home and curled up on the porch (well, until the frigid wind sent me scurrying back into my bedroom) and spent the afternoon/evening beating my Dreamwidth journal style into submission.

And what GLORIOUS fun it was. \0/ There is nothing better than wrangling with code until your eyes glaze over and you come out the other side having coerced a computer to do exactly what you want.

I used the not-so-pretty (well, okay, not-so-pretty to me) Transmogrified style and ripped apart the CSS, then stitched it back together until it turned into this.


Thank you, Tom Felton for the pretteh picture and [info]gossymer for the navigation strip CSS. *g*

That's still the bones of Transmogrified; it just has a brand new skin. I've only had a chance to test it in Safari and Firefox on a Mac so far, so it may still be buggy on a PC, but I'm pretty pleased with it at the moment. CSS is bloody brilliant.

And now, I collapse exhaustedly into bed and watch some Spooks before falling asleep. I've hit series three and I'm still crushing on Keeley Hawes.

Random thoughts on nothing in particular

1. My upstairs neighbours are playing seriously crap dance music very loudly. It's annoying, but I suppose it's better than listening to them fight. Or have sex. Still. :|

2. Now that my fest fics are done and I appear to have broken through my writer's block at least a little, I'm getting ready to tackle my next batch of fics. Coming up on the list are my Snarry Games fic (for which I am currently incubating what I hope is an awesome idea), [info]purelyironic's H/D musician AU, [info]gossymer's H/D fantasy AU, and [info]accioslash's Snarry. The latter three of which are extremely overdue. *facepalms* But they should fill my writing schedule up through Azkatraz.

3. Meryl Streep freaking creeps me out in The Manchurian Candidate.

4. Still very much enamoured with Dreamwidth. On [info]idlerat's recommendation, I snagged the username [info]femme which I've wanted on LJ for years, but it's been taken by someone from California since 2000, dammit. Anyway I'm thinking of using my Dreamwidth [info]femme as a fic archive journal. I've been considering setting up a fic website, but haven't wanted to use efiction. So this might be a good substitution. *ponders*

5. I started reading Douglas Rushkoff's Coercion: Why We Listen to What "They" Say today. It's an examination of media and marketing in the Internet age, and I may have more to say on it later. Lately I appear to be having a slight existential crisis in regards to my twelve-year-long career path in marketing/communications/graphic design.

6. There was a six, but I forgot it. So instead I think I'll curl up in bed now...good night, el jay, eye jay and dreamwidth. :)
