A Sunday to be Hailed!

Yehh.. cheeseball. But we did have a rather huge hailstorm for the area just an hour ago – looks like it snowed out there.

Also, it is a day to celebrate.

I have installed WP 2.5, and it’s lovely!!! **HUGS** for all the developers!

I got some wild colours in corduroy and velveteen for making handbags. Notions too, of course, to go with. I have a bunch of fabric for making things to sell, but my sewing machine is broken (something wrong with the tension mechanism inside.. no matter what I try, the thing still breaks its own thread) so the fabric just sits.
Mom decided to get a sewing machine for me!!! Happy Birthday & Easter to me! It’s a cheapish Singer – of course they’re all made of plastic these days. This one has 12 different stitches and a bunch of extra feet and stuff that I’m not likely to ever use. :} Shoot, I wonder how many bobbins it came with? Forgot to check that. Anyway, the next-highest-up machine was the all-electronic one, which I don’t trust. The memory can go so easily wonky in those things – and again, I will never use all that extra crap. My sewing involves straight lines and the occasional appliqué stitch.

So I have a design for this handbag floating around in my head, and I need to draw it out on paper and actually make a pattern out of the thought. Then, hopefully, it will sell. :}

On a side note, I’ve started delving into the world of MySQL and PHP. Sure, I can install scripts just fine, and even kind of see where I’ve accidentally missed a bracket or something. But I don’t know how to write anything other than an include in PHP, let alone connect it to a database. I have a friend who wants a very simple script written, and I am quite sure I can figure it out myself, perhaps with a little bit of security know-how from the gals at CodeGrrl. The book that I got is for PHP6, which isn’t even really in use yet, but I’m certain the simple thing I’m writing won’t use any features that have been added or changed since version 2. Heh.
