We're Back!

Jan 13, 02:10 AM · from the mouth of Jim

Well, bed time is going to be incredibly early tonight, but I figured I’d send out an “Ay ‘mon” to everyone. Yes, Jamaican’s really do say that, ‘mon. And after you say “thanks”, they really do say “no prob lem”. (Kinda hard to convey the Jamaican accent, but you can imagine it.)

Anywho, the bloggin’ situation from the ship was hard – I didn’t have a lappy of my own and the wireless on the ship required that I take Sarah’s lappy up to the ‘puter lab to xfer files, and we were busy, and the internet was uber expensive ($.40/minute) and I was lazy and so on – but!!! I was a good boy and took notes for every single day that I have not yet posted… so the weekend’s project is to write all the remaining entries. I’m also going to retrofit all of my entries with picatures.

To all the people using CSS aware browsers – I was horrified to open the Seminar section in Mozilla today. I used a prebuilt theme and never had the chance to view it in anything other than Internet Exploder. Anyway, so I’m sorry it looks like ass in Mozilla, and probably any other CSS strict browser. People should be shot for producing such specific code and then not specifying that it has only been tested in IE – especially textpattern people! I seriously thought that textpattern people strove for compliance…

Anymoo – so yeah, we’re back and tired and the return trip went fine and all that. My back is still healing well and it seems as though I gain a bit more strength or flexibility in it every day. I still have major numbness in my leg and foot, but who knows how that’ll all pan out – there’s always that tiny little chance that I’ll have it for the rest of my life. I have a followup with the surgeon’s office tomorrow afternoon, so it’ll be muy interesting to see what they say. I’ll keep ya’ll up to date.

So thar ye go. More to come…

    Yeah I was wondering about that. I got all kinds of crazy stuff whenever I wanted to view posts.

    It’s been pretty dead around here. But the only thing I’ve had to add is that I had a dream the other night, everyone was basically there. But then Tyler was driving a convertible and Andy was in the passenger seat. And I had a bird take a huge dump on me in the back seat. I wonder what those silly dream books would have to say about that?!?

    But we’re happy to have you back Yimmy.

    Welcome back Jimmy!

    I’m glad your back is doing better. If it means anything at all, I too had recent surgery on my backside, only a little further down… you might say they tore me a new one!

    Your blog looked fine on IE – I guess I’m not a great web sophisticate like Iak. But it was very dramatic, especially that stuff about the guy leaving the trip. It was written with such gut-wrenching realism! That episode would make a good story for Degrassi.

    Yeah… about that drama :o) My filters were turned off. You can tell that Chris got a little mad at me for posting it (though she did it in a girlie I’m-not-talking-to-you kinda way instead of just talking to me about it)... but oh well. They know I journal, they know I just write about what happened, and so I did ;o) Bah.
