I adore lazy Sundays. Adore them.

I've spent the last four hours or so changing my layout. And I've learned I really don't need help to change things; all I need is time to figure it out. CSS is a foreign language, and I speak JUST enough to get by.

That said, I found some really cool pictures that I didn't use for my header. And I'd appreciate a discerning eye or feedback on what I did choose. Or you could just drop by with a little love. That never hurt.

Pinup girls. )

Have a happy Sunday!

Three things.

1.) I just spent the last hour in the backyard playing catch with my nine year-old*. He's a pretty amazing athlete, especially considering his parents are not just liberal arts, but theatre performance majors. Ethan was catching the ball effortlessly, his feet unmoving, just snagging it backhanded from wherever I threw it. He even made a few jumping catches. Meanwhile, I'm huffing and puffing and flinching, sweating like a maniac an catching about a quarter of what he throws to me. It frustrated me because he was throwing short; the ball would hit the ground about a foot and a half before it got to me. So being the stupid girl I am, I say:

Carrie. Throw it harder, E. Come on, you can do it!

Ethan. (gives me a look) I know I can, Mom, but I don't want to hurt you.

Carrie.  (looks over the top of  sunglasses and glares at  progeny)  Just throw the darn** ball, Ethan."

He shrugs and fires a couple off, and I'm flinching like CRAZY now because I'm essentially afraid of the ball.(With good reason, as it turns out. I'm gonna have nasty bruises this afternoon.)

In short, my nine year-old owned me at catch. *sigh*

2.) I redid my livejournal layout! (All by myself! *puffs up*) Some of the pink is a little too Pepto Bismol, but I'll fix it. I saved my old one, too, 'cause I loved it. But I'd had it for about a year, so it was time for a change.

3.)  I got some mail this week that pissed me off and horrified me at the same time.  One of the funeral homes in town sent me a brochure soliciting my business for their services.  What the hell.  I'm thirty-six.  Do they know something I don't?  I do not want to go shopping for coffins,*** thankyouverymuch.   I digress; Schooler-Gordon funeral home; keep your glossy pictures of final resting places to YOURSELF.

*He's the kid in the icon
**Language censored for the ears of said kid.
***Or in my case, urns, because I've got this irrational fear of being buried alive.
I love the hug generator on my profile page.  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.  :)  Everyone should have one.

Hubs and I saw The Bourne Ultimatum last night.  Hubby was a aflutter at the car chases/action sequences/ass kickings.  I was mildly entertained.  That Jason Bourne can really take a beating, though.  He's a bit like the Energizer bunny.  Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.  Wait.  That's a Seiko.  Whatever.  It was alright.  It was shot in an interesting way, but parts of it made me a little dizzy.

I'll be gone Sunday through Thursday for a trip to NYC.  I have tickets to see David Hyde Pierce in Curtains and we'll probably see a couple of more shows while we're there.  I'll take lots of pictures and do a big picspam blog upon my return.  

I've realized that in my absence, I'll miss two events; the first is [profile] sue_bridehead's birthday.  So, Happy Birthday, Sue, I hope it's phenomenal and you get everything you want; my best wishes go with you for the upcoming year!  The second event is that Monday, August 6th is my one year anniversary of having this livejournal. *tear*  This makes me very happy!  My love for livejournal was almost instantaneous.  I found my way here originally through reading fan fiction at FIA.  While reading [personal profile] rainpuddle13's and [personal profile] dragonsangel68's stories, they mentioned LJ and once I finally wandered over to see what all the fuss was, I was hooked.  I've met truly fabulous people from all over the world.  There are people on my f-list not only from all over the continental United States, but also Austrailia, Canada, the UK, and Scandanavia, and my life is richer for having met you all.  My f-list has grown exponentially; sitting down with a cup of coffee and reading LJ is one of my favorite things to do in the morning.  I thank you all for blessing me, and I look forward to another fantastic year on livejournal!

Apologies for getting all sentimental.  *sniff*  See you Friday!
