A list. O Beautiful list!
    THINGS! AMG!
  1. I enjoy weight training far, far more than running.
    • I have already added ten to fifteen pounds to most machines.
    • I'm ten pounds away from maxing out the thigh press machine. Which scares me a little.
  2. I am pretty much the same weight from last month, roughly 186.
  3. The weather is desperately beautiful.
  4. I'm over the stupid Winter/Spring change cold just in time for my allergies to explode.
    • What possible evolutionary advantage can allergies have.
  5. Deadline this Thursday. I think I'm ready for it.. I can't tell. Is that bad?
  6. Lots of very good things happening at work that I can't talk about yet. <twitch>
  7. Food:  Day 2
    • I was intending to do a funny nothing-but-crumbs set of photos for photog_xp but gave up for lack of proper lighting to get that close a macro shot regularly.
    • I need to make me a light box.
  8. Chuck Klosterman's fiction is excellent. He reminds me of Douglas Adams.
  9. Last night? lady_fox and I made Elvises.
    • Peanut butter, honey, banana, and bacon on wheat toasted in a pan with butter.
    • NOM
    • We had Banana Splits too!
  10. Nested tables FTW!

Now. What are you up to, people? And why haven't more of you done an ADIML or two yet?

I'm up to about 181. :D

Nested tables?? Depends how many layers deep. And whether they're HTML or not. Some of my co-workers still insist on using them for formatting (like making a table have a colored background/border effect) despite my teaching them how to do it with CSS...

I ate bacon yesterday as part of a salad. And I liked it. The world is ending!!

I saw your photo! You're getting gigantic!

I use tables for my navigation bars on websites. The native alignment in the tags tends to work better for me.

You don't normally like bacon?

Adding Chuck Klosterman to my library list. :) Any books in particular you'd like to recommend?

Tell me you've read Christopher Moore.

Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs is one of my favorite books ever. it's a study in pop culture from the late 90s, early 00s. I"m currently reading Downtown Owl which is just silly. It's a series of interwoven short stories written around three characters. It's about a very, very small town and the weird sorts of realities people build for themselves to survive boredom.

I have not read any Christopher Moore. :(

I've read about half of Christopher Moore's books, and they are all hilarious. Try The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, Fluke, or A Dirty Job. Also, Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett is pretty amusing. It's about how the angels that are supposed to bring about Armageddon don't particularly want to because they like it here. I laughed the whole way through.

I actually attempted ADIML yestereday. This lasted until around 10.30am when I went "ugh, this is driving me crazy." and I went and ate something without taking a picture of it. XD and then did not for the rest of the day.

Guess I'll try again later.

Re: nested tables. I use them for major design elements where some browsers behave slightly differently and I want to ensure it looks the same across resolutions and whatever. I'm sure it CAN be done with Divs and CSS, but I've always found the tables to be more rigid. (Though, to be fair, it's tables and CSS.)

I find your lack of follow-through disturbing.

I don't know why... it was just extremely bothersome to me.

This web-stuff talk made me just add some custom CSS to my LJ page to make links stand out more. :) Thanks for the indirect push.

I should play with my LJ settings. I should get it all ready to incorporate into my website. I lost steam after retooling the galleries.

A couple years ago I maxed out the thigh press in my college weight room (had to steal weights from other machines). It was fun. I ran my full set of reps at that weight and it felt fine. No one else in the group could do it, so I felt even better about it. :)

I'm working up a few projects to integrate my site with LJ, twitter, and possibly Facebook. We'll see how far it goes.

I'm going to start crushing watermelons next.

I did an ADIML the day you did one; I just haven't posted it yet. I want you to nervously anticipate my amazing-ness - I like that power. ;o)

Also, stop hating on Dallas so much. It's not that bad, you know? And if you didn't suck and were there two freakin' days before the 1st, it would be way more awesome for you because I would be there.

Oh well, you miss out. You were this close to awesomeness.

I have no control over when I travel! Sorry!

Oh I know. I was just joking around.
