Friday Food Frank (and Dean)...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, March 20, 2009

Well, here it is 10:33pm and normally I would be lying on the bed, watching basketball, or if the games got boring, something on TiVo. My post would be done...I would be 'chillin''

HECK-A-DOODLE NO!!!!!! But you know what? I really can't be all upset, because I have been in front of the computer since I got home around 5:15pm (ain't it great to live like 5 minutes from work? Well that will change real soon and I can't wait!!! LOL)

Anyway, so, in front of the computer since I got home...right...working on the header for the new food blog.

I had it done with one template and the when I went and previewed, it did not rock me. And it was doing something funny with the code. Something I found a few times to be honest.

I finally found a clean template (because, you know, a food blog....kitchens....you have to be clean and all), and then I had to change the primary color of the header. which should have been a snap working with GIMP the freeware program (going to be getting my CS3 real soon. CS 4 just came out and CS3 is now a bargain!), so, sorry....drifting around here today...so it should have been easy, but - HECK-A-DOODLE NO - again, this time for real - when I saved I saved as a .png instead of as a native file so all the layers compressed!

SO I had to rebuild it...so at 9:15 my stomach yelled 'HEY BOZO REMEMBER ME? YOU KNOW....THE BODY PART THAT HAS BEEN GROWLING FRO THE LAST HOUR!!!', so luckily, the other night I whipped up some sausage and peppers and onions so I made a sandwich and came right back to the computer.

Finally finished it...I think - I always tinker - but if all is well, you will be introduced on Monday with it's first real post. I even got a real url for it - I am such a renaissance man, ain't I!

Thanks to TURNBABY of "And As The World Turns"for her constant nagging stalker-type emails, suggestions that I do this and also for what has become the tag line for the site.

IF YOU ARE REAL CLEVER YOU CAN EVEN FIND IT AS THERE IS A CLUE...

Other than that, I got nothing....I am exhausted and am actually surprised this was not a one line post and some music...Oh yeah...we will be doing music there also...and going to try and keep it food themed!

FOOD! MUSIC! TWO OF THE GREATS!

Have a great weekend....ENJOY...
