When Will I Ever Learn

This blog is not a place for celebrating my personal good fortune. Every time I start braggity bragging about something or other, trouble looms just outside of my peripheral vision.

I knew the minute I typed last Friday’s entry about what a GREAT flippin’ week I had, things would go awry in the land of www.whoorl.com.

“It’s just a quick WordPress upgrade!” Famous last words.

With a click of a button, I demolished my entire website stylistically. Awesome.

I know a tiny percentage of you would like more details, and let me just say the upgrade wasn’t to blame. The upgrade rendered my theme a little psycho and when I upgraded my theme, I lost all of my CSS changes. ALL OF MY PAINSTAKINGLY DETAILED CSS CHANGES.

This leads me to explain to you just how picky and detailed I am regarding this website. I am constantly tweaking code. I obsess about pixels. ONE TEENY PIXEL can make the difference between happy and very angry. It’s a sickness. Right now, there are at least 15 changes I still need complete before entering Happy Pixel Land.

But that’s not even the worst part. The worst part is that I now want a completely different style and I’m determined to make it happen, even if it means drinking REAL caffeinated beverages. It will have to be perfect, which means more time.

No, wait. The WORST part is that 85% of you are sleeping right now. I have successfully bored you into slumber due to my highly-charged pixel rambles.

Why do I care so much? Because I’m crazy details girl. Little teeny-tiny details are going to take me from Beautiful Unique Snowflake Girl (Schnozz, you REALLY shouldn’t have called me that. My head, it grew.) to Crazy Muttering Woman In The Gutter.

That’s all for today. Please pardon the mess over here for the next couple of days/weeks.

    I don’t know my pixels from a hole in the ground, but I have been known to go back and correct typos in entries from TWO YEARS AGO.

    Oh yes.

    So I understand. I really do. And I’m glad you’re back!

    If anyone can do it, you can. Good luck on the tweaking :)

    This is why I have 30,000 versions of my CSS backed up and then when it blows out I can’t figure out which one is the right one, so what the hell good did it do me anyway???

    you shouldn’t have told me that, now i feel all twitchy about how easily that could happen to anyone, meaning ME. *twitch* dammit. i hate technology.

    but, on the up side, so far it’s looking lovely, and your banner is oh-so designy and colorful.

    (tap-tap: you’re on here right now, aren’t you? you’re tweaking right now, am i right?)

    I love how the site looks now, and I wish there was something we could all do to help. Unfortunately my talents lie only in making delicious brownies and raspberry coladas. Oh and browsing eBay but I imagine that won’t come in handy for this particular crisis. Best of luck!
