Fairytale Princess Amy

When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple with a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.*

Congratulations. You've broken the secret code. I am indeed wearing purple. Makes me wish I had a red hat. Lets give 'em something to talk about. I think the shock comes less from the purple and more from the fact that it's a complete outfit that matches. They probably think I have a job interview lined up. Let em. Edit Ah, an update on the purple front. Apparently it makes my hair scream "Look at me! I'm RED!" in a way that most colors don't. I don't see it.
I may have to sneak home at lunch. I see that MY KEYBOARD might be here, and I don't think I can wait until tonight if it is. We wants it.
Although I was thinking of going to Curves at lunch. Hrm. Debate.
Also, I have broken through the plateau. And I'm very happy about it.
GRUMP! I'm starting to hate 50bookchallenge. People need to stop telling me about books that aren't available in America. *burning the airwaves trying to get a copy of Eoin Colfer's "The Seventh Dwarf". One World, my fanny.

XML and keyboards!

So my replacement keyboard is here. It's a pretty bare bones package. Two keyboards with cases, each in their own plastic bags. Also two pieces of paper, one in with one of the keyboards providing information about where to download the doc and drivers for it, and the other the shipping invoice. I'm all good with it, because I still have my original box, manuals, CD etc. So I have a keyboard again. I shall swagger and act manly. Because I can. Because I should. Because I will.
I'm installing emacs, and badly, on my PC so I can start playing with XML and XSL(T). Any words of wisdom and/or encouragement are good. Wayne is helping me, bless his heart. I shall reward him by not sexually harassing him while he helps me...or is it that I'm supposed to sexually harass him as a reward? I can never remember which is which! I'd take the harassment quiz, but alas, the site is down. I'll just have to trust that I passed the test once, I can pass the real world too. Heh heh heh.
