Now that's more like it!

Let me know what you think about the new layout. MUCH more my style than that awful green thing; I just needed something that would work well in Firefox as well as IE, thus the switch.

As for how much of my 'today list' I got done... most of it. I didn't do the creative writing story, but that's not due for a very long time anyway. I did run, I did clean the bathrooms, and I did work on my thesis, even if it was mostly just reorganizing old information - at least I got my head back into it.

Things I did today which were not on the list:

- Got caught sneaking an extra kroket out of the dining hall. ("Hide it better next time!" the cashier yelled in Dutch at my retreating back.)

- Found this article, which everyone MUST read.

- Talked to my sister and helped her get set up on Blogger.

- Made a really cool discovery about Early Modern English (Shakespearian-time) verbs, the details of which I won't bore you with.

- Most obviously: redesigned my entire site.

My blog isn't posting (which I blame on maintenance, since I tried all the tricks their FAQ mentioned), but you can link me if you want.
Later I might ask you more questions about trying to put my Life List on the other side, I tried to add a table but it wasn't working right. Hmm.
