Snapshot - March 2006

Listening to Train "For Me, It's You" and Emiliana Torrini "Love In The Time Of Science".  I have to be in the right mood for Emiliana, but she's written some beautiful mellow songs, definitely worth listening to.  The Train CD was a birthday gift from Hubby and I love it!  It's in the car, which is the highest honour I can bestow on a CD.  Also listening to Alanis Morissette's cover of Crazy.  I loved the original by Seal, and she did a great job of it.

Reading Crawford Killian Writing Science Fiction and Fantasy, P.G. Wodehouse Very Good Jeeves, and Anne Lamott Traveling Mercies.  I have an eight week sci-fi writing course starting at Writer's Village University on the 22nd, and Killian is the textbook.  I picked an eight week course to break me in gently for the six week journalling course I've failed to complete twice already.

Geeking out about a new WordPress theme, Painted Desert. I might try it if I can get all my headers and footers in order.  It's the first theme that's really caught my eye.  It's left-menu, not a right-menu like the rest of the site, but it'd be nice to have a change once in a while.  Also need to install the WordPress 2.0.2 upgrade. WordPress upgrades are painless providing you don't delete your config file in the process.  The coders have a sense of humour too.  You start the upgrade at a given URL on Step One, click the relevant link, wait a few seconds, and get a message saying "You're done, go play!".
