Presenting…… A Tomb With a View. I opened this site yesterday, after working on it for 3-and-a-bit weeks. It’s a dedication to Darla and Drusilla (from Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer). I’m pretty pleased with it. :-) So, the next thing for me to do is revamp Eternal…. Literally, I think. I can do most of the work on the UKBAWC in bits and pieces. And of course there is still the massive task of overhauling Spiked and Skewered. Maybe I should take some more time off work…… Heh.
*sniffle* No more comment count on Blogvoices. It’s speeded up performance no end, apparantly, so I can’t blame them for taking it out. But I liked it. I think there might be some way to install it locally – I’ll have to check it out. Or maybe I should be thinking about shifting to Greymatter. Megs, what d’you think? Is it easy to set up and use?
John of Site for Sore Eyes has been nice enough to link me from his blog. And his blog is a real, proper blog – unlike this one, which is much more of a journal, or perhaps a burblelog *g*. Also, he likes Buffy. :-) So anyway, if you want to see what a blog should really be like, go see John. I’ve actually been thinking about the distinct non-blog-ness of this …. er….. blog over the last few days. And I’ve come to the conclusion that I’d never be able to produce a site like John’s, because the vast majority of my time on the internet is invested (and it is an investment, honest! *g*) in working on my own sites, reading my vast amount of email, and chatting to my friends on ICQ or AIM. When I’m not doing that, I’ll really only be surfing Buffy-related sites, and other blogs. And since the other blogs are the only places I’ll come across current affairs type articles, there would be no point in then inserting that into *my* blog unless I have a comment to make about it. Still with me? (No? Oh well. *g*) Soooooo….. what I’m going to do, then, is blog about the sites I do visit – Buffy / Angel sites. Perhaps not everyday, I don’t know yet. I’ll still continue with the general rambling too. And that’s it, really. Bet you’re glad you read that lot, huh? *g*
My Dad told me that my aunt Mary went for a job interview the other day, and they didn’t believe her about her age, or something. Apparantly they were really rude, and she’s talking of sending my cousin Raymond round to sort ’em out. LOLOL. Thing is, she was applying for a job in an old people’s home. Mary is 77 years old. Raymond thinks she’s about 69. OK, so she doesn’t look her age, but I don’t think she’s going to be able to get away with pretending to be in her fifties any more. My Dad’s whole family is utterly barking, you know, and they’re not getting any better with age….. but at least they go on forever!
