Mumbo Jumbo

:note: nothing, iTunes won’t open :(

I’m really, really considering upgrading to WordPress 2.0. Not so much because it’s supposed to be great and wonderful, but because it’ll give me an excuse to do a total re-vamp of this site. I’ve totally screwed up the normal WP template (viewable if you click on any of the categories links – I’ve somehow got two sidebars, and neither of them will float comfortably to the side) and I just feel like I need to start over. Chances are, I’m going to leave the site setup as it is, with the WP journal on the index page and have that be the only part that’s controlled by WP. However, I think I might do away with a lot of the extra fluff I have on this site and see if I can’t get a better system for controlling my photos. I took down my refrigerator labels section ages ago with the hope that I’d write a spiffy photo gallery script and put them back up within a few weeks. The script has been written for three months (though it’s not nearly as spiffy as it could be) but the labels have been missing for forever and I just haven’t gotten around to doing anything with them. I’ve got a few days free after I get home and before I have to go back to school, and I think I’ll upgrade and mess around with my site then. Be forewarned.

I had an interesting dream last night, and oddly, it’s easy to explain. I was pregnant, then I had the baby, and then I was going about my daily life with said baby. The only weird things I remember were that the birth didn’t hurt very much, and the baby was a girl with shoulder-length, blonde hair that I put into two braids. And we were in a bathroom stall at one point, and I was struggling to pull down the baby changing tray thing to put her on so that I could use the bathroom. I finally got it down but it was all wet like it had been splashed with water, so I held the baby up to the paper towels and she grabbed one, and I wiped it down. I think that’s when I woke up. Weird, no? The interpretation is pretty straightforward too, though I’m not sure what project it’s describing:

:arrow: To dream that you are pregnant symbolizes an aspect of yourself or some aspect of your personal life that is growing and developing. You may not be ready to talk about it or act on it. This may also represent the birth of a new idea, direction, project or goal.
:arrow: To dream of giving birth or see someone else giving birth suggests that you are giving birth to a new idea or project. It also represents a new attitude, fresh beginnings or a major upcoming event. Alternatively, the dream may be calling attention to your inner child and the potential for you to grow.
:arrow:To see a baby in your dream signifies innocence, warmth and new beginnings. Babies may symbolize something in your own inner nature which is pure, vulnerable, and/or uncorrupted.

I think today I’m going to order my stuff from Victoria’s Secret, and then start packing all of my Christmas presents into my little suitcase. I really don’t have any other plans. My brothers started school again today, so they’re not home; my mom worked night shift last night so she’s still sleeping; my dad is at work. I leave here tomorrow night, so I feel like I should be doing something useful but nothing’s coming to mind. Maybe I’ll sketch some new layout ideas or something.

    Ugh… I know how you feel about screwed up WP templates. It took me forever to cut down the default one to just what I wanted so it actually WORKED on all of the pages. I hate when things get all screwed up and then you feel like you have to completely reinstall to fix anything. Hmm..I still don’t know if I want to upgrade to 2.0, though. Can’t really be bothered to do it right now. Good luck with it whenever you go to do it.
