Shades of gray

Do you get it? Shades of gray!?

Okay, I got that out of my system. Sometimes my lack of cleverness knows no bounds.

Things are quiet this weekend. Even though the masthead tells other stories, the weather has been better than expected. Today is looking to clear up nicely as I stare at a beautifully cold blue sky. I woke up early after a dreadful headache day yesterday. Even after my magic pill, I spent yesterday sleeping and hiding under the covers until early evening. The dog park (combined with the magic pill kicking in) took me out of my funk late in the afternoon, and we managed to go to Indian food for dinner to pretend that we did not waste yet another Saturday.

I'm not sure what it is with Saturdays, but I've ruined too many of them with headaches. Maybe there's something in the air, or I feel that I can sleep late without paying the penalty. I quickly forget how much pain I was in the previous Saturday and justify sleeping in by thinking that since upon waking my head already hurts, there's no harm is staying asleep a few more hours.

My dreams of waking to a wonderful PHD (Post-Headache Day) today were dashed when my head still hurt this morning. I managed to drag myself out of bed (fool me twice in a weekend, shame on me), and I'm in the coffee shop typing away, having escaped the possible Sunday headache by the skin of my fingernails.

Not all is bad, of course. I'm still tweaking NAIS, but most of the big administrative functionality is done. I had hopes of using Javascript to make very user-friendly photo functions, but I decided to pare down my plans. I did manage to create a nifty Javascript box moving thing that allows me (and the Doolies) to choose the square thumbnail from the slide. When I get a chance to clean up the code and get it to work in Firefox, I'll share the code.

Speaking of sharing, I have written the past two days pieces of something that resembles a story (sans plot or action or anything that would be of much interest to readers). I won't make any promises, but I do hope to continue to work on it and eventually post it.

For now, I'll suffice with a Horribles post and call it something new.
