I was really missing Luke Skywalker so I switched back to my old layout. I go through stages where I don't think about Star Wars, Mark Hamill or Luke Skywalker for a very long time. It is strange how I always seem to think more about SW during the winter time rather than any other season. It must be a hibernation tactic. Right now, I am getting ready to snuggle down with a warm Luke Skywalker in a Taun taun sleeping bag. Wishful thinking. Lately, I have been thinking about my SW book collection. Last year, I bought a Kindle. I love using it but I do not have any SW books on it. This is a struggle for me because all of my SW books are either paperback or hardcover. Do I really want to spend the extra money on the same book through Kindle? Does anyone else have the same problem as me? Before I bought my Kindle, if I really liked a book I would buy 2 copies of the paperback. One to read and one to keep in a collection. I would love to toss any old worn out paperbacks and just have these available to read on my Kindle. What should I do???
Still hot and steamy outside right now. I have the air conditioning on and the windows are fogging up. Maybe I need to adjust the temp in the house. It is crazy how the weather can change so dramatically around here.
This afternoon, I found a dead hawk lying in the middle of the road. It's had been beheaded. It was really disturbing and gross. I cannot imagine what kind of predator would do that. Maybe a coyote? Maybe it is a sign? The reason I ask this, is because this happened at work and last year, (around the same time ) my boss found a hawk that was killed. It had been placed on top of a large rock with it wings spread out. At the time we thought it meant something since it was obvious someone had placed the dead hawk on the rock. Maybe someone who works on the farm is targeting hawks? It is very strange. Makes me think of X-Files.
I switched back to the Component theme. I didn't like that temporary layout. it was really boring. I have always liked the Component style. There are so many more different ways to personalize a journal. The only thing I don't like about Component is how long it takes to redesign and customize a personal theme. I wish it was easier. I am not sure if I like the grassy background. I need to fix that also.
It has been over 3 years since I have changed the look of my LJ page I think it needs a fresh update. I still really love my Luke Skywalker/ Mark Hamill theme but, I have grown tired of looking at it. I want to try something new and different. While I am looking for a new theme, I have switched over to this boring/ temporary layout page.
Well I am back again. I just saw that ugly maggot on my page. Gross. I have to remove that.
Lately, I have been very busy, so of course my livejournal always gets neglected. I finally had my main computer fixed and upgraded to WIndows 7. I ended up losing all of my bookmarks from my previous explorer so now I am in the process of trying to remember some of my favorite sites. While I was waiting for my computer, I had been using an old laptop that my parent's let me borrow. I hated that machine! The battery was so old that it would shut off within 20 minutes, so I always had to keep the power cord plugged in.
I caught the flu bug that was floating through the air at work. This has been a horrible weekend for me. I started to have a small dry cough friday afternoon and by the time I got home I felt very drowsy and flushed. I had a temperature of 101.3 on Saturday and ended sleeping the whole day. I have taken multiple Tylenol and Mucinex and I cannot take anymore medications or I will start to get really ill.
I have been keeping up with liquids. Lots of water and hot black cherry tea. I am not sure if black cherry tea is good for the flu. I just really like the taste better then plain old tea. As you can tell I am starting to feel better otherwise, I wouldn't be typing. I am hoping that I will feel better by tomorrow morning. There is a mandatory meeting at work and I am just going to have to endure this and hopefully not spread my flu bug to anyone. I guess I could always wear a face mask but that might scare some people.
I have a glitch on my page. I keep seeing two mood settings with the same picture. I must have messed up my theme layer. I hate messing around with my page. I always end up making too many adjustments and then my layout goes haywire. Tomorrow, I will search through Component help maybe they have an easy fix for this. I also need to find some new userpics as well. I like the ones I have but , it is always fun to search for new ones.
