Let me out...

Ever eat some Wint-O-Green Life Savers one night and then wake up in the morning with a massive neck cramp? Well, lemme tell ya, it sucks. It sucks hardcore. That was a few days ago. Wednesday, actually. I couldn't look to the right without nearly crippling myself. I ended up having to skip my CS Lab. It's not that it was so unbearable that I had to skip, it was more the consequences of a stupid idea I had. I figured, since my neck was really hurting, I would just lay down and sleep...or at least rest my head for a while. Well, my bed is the second bunk. So...I had to climb a ladder and carefully crawl my way into a laying-down position. It's really not all too difficult to do, but it can be very frustrating when you neck is sending major pain throughout your body because of seemingly random movements. Anyway, I eventually laid down. I had about 45 minutes to lay there before I had to get up for lab. After laying there for about 15 minutes, I realized that my neck hurt no matter how I was positioned. I decided to get up and just bear the pain until I pass out or something. Well, getting up out of bed took me about three times as long as it did to get in. By the time I got out of bed, going to lab was right out. Instead, I sat at my chair in front of my computer.

At this point, I knew I was more or less stuck in one place. Moving in general was going to really really hurt. Sooooo, I figured I should do something. Thusly, I decided to finally work on those blasted websites of mine. The stuff for my church's website that I had been slowly putting off ended up taking me about an hour to finish. This was both cool and freaky. It was cool because I finished it. It was creepy because I know I couldn't do that stuff that quickly normally. Anyway, I moved onto the Shrubbery section of this very site. I ended up coding most of it in one sitting. That code, of course, didn't really work that well...or at all. So I had a lot to fix up. I also had to completely change the way the voting works (and I use the word 'works' loosely). It's still a little buggy, but it works. So, all you members out there (all 10 or so...), get your favorite shrubbery and enter it into the shrubbery contest. If you're not a member, go make an account and do stuff and whatnot.

Next on the agenda of site updates is the “music” section. No downloads or anything, but more of a music review/discussion dealy. Those of you who read the Sketchbook should remember the 'NoisE' section that I ran. It's gonna be like that. Very much like that. Only with some kind of discussion added in there. Whatever. It's not like anyone reads this site anyway.

After nagging me to get the Shrubbery section up and running, I, in turn, nagged shmike to update his friggen site. He did. There's a link button for it on the side. Go visit it and read it. I mean, it's not likely he'll update it at all, but at least there's something there for now. Meh. I'm gonna go get me some chocolate milk and chinese food...you only wish you were this lucky.
