BlogVoices are not going down and out. The kind people at Pyra have offered some spareroom for it :)

I do not like being in situations where it's absolutely best to be as clueless as possible. It makes my head start spinning and the thoughts racing here and there where they really shouldn't be. ANd yes I am talking about a specific situation here, but I cannot talk about it more than I have and probably shouldn't have said what I've said.

BadBlog is a new project a couple of online friends and I are trying to get going.

Looks like I have it fixed for now, but I'm far from satisfied so expect yet another remake as soon as my head works again and I've gotten some rest.

Darn it. This layout doesn't work with the archive date format. Looks like I have to figure out something else.

The more I look at and work with this version of Crunchblog, the more I'm getting to like it. Just isn't too sure about the colors yet.

Ack one of the cats just threw up their food (Yes I know you didn't need to know that). Makes me wonder how the heck I managed the work in kindergarden, changing diapers etc, when I can't even hold my own food down while cleaning up after that.

Think my body is finally demanding the sleep it has been lacking so much, the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately it is happening when I shouldn't be sleeping, but up and awake and do business around the house. I guess some day, some where I'll get my sleeping patterns turned around to where they oughta be.

Pristine is part of Mousies/Jemas presence on the web. A very good read and worth spending time looking through.

Welcome among the active bloggers Mousie :) Glad you found your way round ;P

I'm starting to have the feeling of cabin fever. I really want to get out, meet people, see and learn new things, make new experiences but unfortunately the fact is (For my area) that unless you have a car or other means of transportation you're stuck untill someone is willing to take you somewhere. I can't wait until the day I can make my own little trips and discoveries and in general be more independent. Bob knows all this. Thank god he is great at getting me out of the house when he senses that the cabin fever are getting too bad.

I have a wishlist.
Typed by Sara . on 1:17 PM - Link - Comments

Why do I get so many creative ideas just when I've gone to bed and am trying to get some sleep? Am I the only one? Mail Me and let me know. I had one idea tonight I just had to get out and down on the digital canvas. Nothing fancy or really great, just needed to get it out before I was thinking it to death (You'll see it later). There's another one but it's one which takes a little more work and planning. Anyway I'm going to try and see if I can get some sleep.

I'm subscribed to a news group for and about tutorials for Paint Shop Pro, where people also can post their results of working with different tutorials. However all people do is to pat eachother on the back for great work, even though it might be terrible looking. I have yet to see anyone giving any piece of constructive criticism such as "you should try a little soften here or there", "those colors doesn't work well together", "try using the smudge brush", "I see a couple of stray pixels", "you should try to cut down on the texturizing to give it a more natural look". I know what will happen if I started to give that kind of advice, I would be knocked up side down from left and right. It has happened before in regards to the copyright issue. People say they're just there to play, have fun and learn, but how can they learn if they don't get some feedback about how to improve their skills? I do not claim to be the best one at doing webgraphics, but I do hope that people would be honest enough to let me know if there is anthing that is totally out of whack. Maybe I should make my own "Top 10 Graphics Peeves" on my graphics site. I'm just afraid that it would be a lot longer than just 10 items.
Typed by Sara . on 9:09 PM - Link - Comments

I'm thinking of merging New Horizons into this page since Crunchblog seems to be the place where most things are happening besides the Graphics page and the Galleries. It would be one place less to maintain and doesn't take up much more than 4 or 5 MB of space which hardly would make a dent in the amount of space I have here at the CrunchBlog account. Hmm decisions, decisions.

This is good news (I think). Pyra got another Server in donation from Web Techinques Magazine.
Typed by Sara . on 1:01 PM - Link - Comments

Hmmm BlogVoices are going belly up, because Hostrocket have decided the service is a violation of terms. Hmm one could hope that the Pyra crew would include something similar in a Blogger Pro version.

I almost forgot to mention that I've got something coming in the mail and I can't wait. I managed to persuade Bob to order The Commitments which is a great movie with some really great music and with a good story too.

Just looked at the Amazon page and it looks like we got the very last copy (WOAH never been that lucky before :), so don't bother trying to order it from them.

From metafileter.com: Now this story about a Christian theme park is amusing. Would I visit? Probably not, but everyone their own taste I guess.

Ahhh danish meatballs in an insanely hot currysauce with rice. That's what I call a good dinner :) And the leftovers will be even better when the spices really have had time to blend in. Which reminds me.... Am I the only one who should cook the day before so spices have time to blend? It always ssems that whenever I'm cooking and we have for the second day, it tastes so much better than the day before.

Ok got a temp mail link up, rest must wait until later. Rare thing to get mail from this page anyway *hint given with a clue x 4*
Typed by Sara . on 11:56 PM - Link - Comments

Hmmm guess I should make a Mail Me link somewhere too, but it has to wait until later. Making dinner right now. Yes I know it's late at night but that's how our schedule are in this house.

Ok New design, but I have the feeling there will be another new one pretty soon. Somehow the colors doesn't fit together really well. Anyway be nice to this one while it's here.

Hmmm wonder if the socalled improvemts the blogger people supposedly have made in the last couple of days are for special bloggers only? Have had a hard time today.

There are days where I really could use a "write it all out" kind of place which not everyone has access to, because there are things I really could use letting off steam about. Things of a very personal nature to me. *sigh* If I had a mood indicator on my page if would change status faster than the wind blows. *curling up and hugging myself* :(
Typed by Sara . on 8:47 PM - Link - Comments

Maybe I should rename this to Heartache instead of Crunchblog. Seems to be better fitting of my mood and the content. Or maybe "Pit with a View".

Sometimes I think I'm being way too emotional about certain things, but how can I not be so, when something so very close to my heart (like having kids) is way out of my reach and always will be unless a couple of major miracles happens?
Typed by Sara . on 5:34 PM - Link - Comments

This story really makes my heart cry for various reasons which I will not describe here. Just wish I could curl up in a ball and let the world move on without me :(

At least they supposedly changed the rules now. Just a little late for a lot of people. Ahh well I've got better things to do in better places.

Sometimes when doing my round of reading blogs I feel like a peep who shouldn't be looking at or reading what I am looking at and reading. But there is something facinating about being allowed to get insight into certain parts of peoples lives. It's like reading a great book while the story is taking place, and you cannot get yourself to put the book down. But I still feel like I'm reading something I shouldn't be......

Anyone know if the numbers here are true?

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington study.
Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
