As I settle in here, and tinker around with Blogger over there, things may or may not lag in the creativity department. I can get pretty obsessive/compulsive over technology when it gets funky with me.
Yet, it has recently been brought to my attention that life is, indeed, short. I shall endeavor to cease, or at least cut down on, sweating the small stuff.
Watching The Batman cartoon this morning with the kids was not small stuff.
As the wife prepared to go to work, I told her of my dream last night where I found a guy living in one of our closets, and while he threatened me with a fork and a butter knife, I held him at bay with my Spyderco while I frantically signalled her to bring me the nearest gun. She goofed around, pretending to not hear me and acting stupid, and finally my Dad brought me a pistol, and I held it on the loony fucker in my closet and then zip-tied him six ways from Sunday.
I was in an absolute rage at her. I bullied her into standing up straight and keeping her hands down, and I slapped her hard in the face, several times, all the while telling her what I would really do if she ever fucked up again like this. My Dad and my uncle were on the couch, nodding approvingly, saying that well, sometimes you just gotta discipline your woman.
I told her all this while she was putting on her make-up a bit ago, and she grounded me from watching TV anymore. Damn.
Well, this WordPress thingy has some bells and whistles I really like, better than Blogger. But mostly I feel like I’ve been dropped into a spaceship hurtling to it’s doom, with all of the controls unfamiliar to me, and all of the labels in Cryllic.
I did not really want to learn programming.
One thing that is driving me insane is the date/time is wrong for both posts and comments, and fixing it looks more arcane than I care to handle. Do any of you WordPress fans know a simple fix for the simple-minded?
