Hello? Echo… echo… echo…

I was looking at my archives, and I realized that man, my blog posting habits have crashed and burned. I guess, to be fair, I’ve separated my content a little bit by opening a special craft blog over at katili*made and posting some old stories over at Names Changed*, but even if you add those posts, I’ve still been awfully quiet. I’ve gotten boring in my old age and spend a lot of time at home.

But, I do want to get my blog back to at least a fraction of it’s former glory! It’s requiring some back end effort and reorganization.

For starters, I’m in the process of switching the blog over to WordPress. I find that ExpressionEngine is now a bit overkill for this site, and I think I’d rather use it for my portfolio. WordPress is super easy to run a blog out of, and I’m looking forward to the final switch. I’ll let you know when it’s done, it’s still in a sandbox being configured and the such.

Obviously I need to post more. To help kick-start good blogging habits, I’ve decided to participate in NaBloPoMo.. we’ll see if I can post daily AND keep up with my NaNoWriMo novel. I might explode before December!

That’s all for today, but we’ll see what tomorrow brings. I need a nap, I had a busy weekend.

Everything Is A Little Buggy

Man. I don’t know what’s going on, but everything has been jussst a little bit odd this past week. My world has a bug! OH NOES!!! I’m a little bit delirious today and I’m not sure why.

Anyhow. KSF To-Go is not working right at the moment. So if anybody has visited in the past 2 weeks and noticed any anomolies with it, that’s why. The nice folks over at ExpressionEngine are trying to help me get it fixed though, so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

What else… I have terrible allergies and stuff this week. That’s no fun. I had to go home early yesterday cause I couldn’t shake the benedryll I had taken the night before to be able to breathe… luckily I had bonus time so it all worked out for me.

There were some other things buggy I was gonna talk about but my brain seems to be buggy too and now I don’t remember.

Really…… I just want to take a nap.

How’s everybody else?

My Head is All Over

No, I don’t mean that my head exploded. Geez. I mean that I have about a gazillion things to say and no real organization to how I want to say it. So now, you get Randumbness.

One: I’m getting a new cell phone. Mmmm hmm. I called T-Mobile (you remember Katie Vs T-Mobile I’m sure) and told them about losing my car insurance. I was very straight forward and said, “Look. My contract with you is up in a month. This is the first time I’ve ever had a problem with you guys.. it just happens to be a large one. Now, I have to go through the process of finding a new insurance company, I’d really rather not have to find a new cell phone provider as well. So here’s the deal: you make this right somehow, and I’ll stay.” So they transfered me to ADVANCED customer care, and the guy there offered to get me a killer deal on a phone. So I went to look at some, then called them again.. I am getting a Blackberry Pearl for super cheap. This phone is SO SWEET dude. I’m happy. Yes, they cost me a huge amount of chaos with one mistake, but they did a damn good job making it up to me. I also decided that me and this phone were destined to be together. Why? Well, look at the colors the skins for it come in. Do they look familiar? HELL YES IT’S MY BLOGS COLOR SCHEME!! Fate baby, fate.


Two: I got suckered into going camping this weekend. I’m really not into that whole nature thing. Bleh.


Three: I wrote up a why register? page that you all should read, then you should see the error of your non-registered way and then.. register.


Four: You should also sign up for the new feedburner smartfeed because my low readership according to their stats is making me sad. :(


Five: My mom’s friend from second life just started a comic called Ginger Dead and it’s really morbidly cute. Love You To Pieces is going to be my new gravatar when they re-enable logins.


Six: I had a lot more things to say earlier, but now I’ sleepy and must pack. And for some reason, using hr makes my layout go wonky. WTF?

Grand Reopening!

Huzzah!!

Now. Those of you that have been here before know that I’ve been saying that I’m going to redo this site for at least a year. And you also know that.. this is the same layout with a new row of options in it. BUT!! I switched over from Greymatter (…cgi, what was I thinking?!) to ExpressionEngine, which I must say I am very pleased with

Anyway, I know it doesn’t seem like a lot to you guys, but it’s a huge step, truly. I have 2 new layouts in the works as well as implementing some plug-ins and the such.

But for now, you guys can register to leave comments (and eventually there will be cool user stats posted somewhere, whee!) and you get a little avatar picture and so on and so forth.

BUGS:
Yes, I already know that the smilies aren’t working at the moment. I’m working on it, but it might take a bit because I know next to nothing about JavaScript. Everything else should be working. If anything looks wrong, please let me know.

That is all for now, I have some code to write.
