Whines - I think iVillage is trying to drive members away! It took me to some newsletter sign up page twice today before I finally could sign in. And the only way I can have a siggie is by going through cgispy. IV won't ever let me make one through them, I guess. 

Whoo hoos - I finally, with dh's help, jumped through all the hoops it took to get my blu-ray player to work with Netflix and signed up for streaming only. I won't get new releases, but I'm amazed at how many full series I can get! Breaking Bad, Supernatural, and ALL the Star Trek series! ALL of them - ALL the years! Voyager and Deep Space Nine (which you never see on tv reruns)! I'm in Trekkie heaven, lol.  And there are movies I couldn't get on dvd that I can get on streaming content! I think I'll like this - as soon as I get used to it a bit more, lol. And, as for new releases, for the money I saved dropping the dvd service, I can get several movies from Redbox.

Suzan, CGIspy is a site that, among other things, lets you rotate your signatures. I used to have several I rotated through, but lately I just use one at a time.  It is kind of complicated to do (I had a whole, pages long print out tutorial to help me), but once it's set up, you just put photobucket siggies in the site and set your siggie in iV to use cgispy and cgispy does the rest.  Of course I set it up back when we could change our iV preferences and siggie html. Frankly, I'm a little surprised it still works, but glad, too, because it's the only way I can put in a new - or any - siggie.  If you're interested, I can try to find the tutorial and email it to you.

Whines...Let's get these pesky things out of the way first!!

I'm having to log in twice every time I come to IV.

Today we bought a new built in microwave, ours broke Christmas morning.
We also had to buy a new garbage disposal as ours is leaking.
Also finally bought a new kitchen faucet and spray thingie. We did not buy the kind with the spray thingie that pulls down out of the faucet. I don't like those.

So, with all of that plus the cost of installation, it cost us what we would have spent taking a nice weekend trip staying in a very nice hotel!! Dang!! Would rather take the trip!!

There's snow on the ground, grey colorless dismal looking snow.

WooHoos...So glad to have gotten the stuff bought and looking forward to installation!!

It's supposed to get up into the high 40's low 50's Friday and run for a week!!
There are 76 days until spring!!

I'm not having all the IV problems some of you are having..knock wood!!

I'm sitting here sipping a glass of vino and thankful for a cozy warm home!!

Hi everyone!

Haven't been back here in a long time, been enjoying Christmas in Boca Raton, haha! :)

Whine: Had to unbutton the jeans at the dinner table again last night. I've been overeating way too much over the holidays, and last night, New Year's leftovers were served. A monster-sized plate of pasta with collard greens and black eyed peas. Couldn't even finish half of the pasta before I had to unbutton (my stomach felt like it was going to burst), and didn't have any room for dessert. Felt so bloated. I'm just hoping that I can get my eating habits back in order when I'm back in NYC next week.

Wahoo: This whole holiday season down here in Florida was definitely one to remember. Fun times with family and friends. It's really nice to have downtime like this once in a while, especially when you're a grad student. Wink
