HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!
It's officially 2009 here in Hawaii. I just finished watching my whole neighborhood pop off all their fireworks, and now the air is so thick with smoke, it looks like fog. Seriously, I can barely see my neighbor's house across the street. My uncle is taking pictures, so I'll get some from him and show you guys.
Anyways, I hope you all had a great celebration. I didn't do much on New Year's Eve, except go to the market to buy some fresh sea food and veggies. I'm going to make a Chinese soup and stirfy for our New Years lunch. The soup required a base, which I made on New Year's Eve. Pretty easy, except for the whole plucking the chicken thing. You see, we have a lot of yard chickens we keep around the house, and apparently my neighbor accidently ran over one (crushed the poor thing's head). So instead of letting a perfectly good chicken go to waste, I ran home real quick and plucked it, then I had my dad show me how to properly gut it. >.< Kinda icky business, but now I know how to prepare a chicken!! (Sorry if I grossed anyone out. I've lived on a farm in Missouri for a few years, so that kinda thing doesn't bother me much.)
Anyway, I'm not sure if I'll get around to commenting later today. After I get a few hours of sleep, I'm fixing lunch then heading out to work with my brother. He needs help painting a roof, so I'm going to help him. That job will take a few hours, so I'm not sure how energetic I'll be tonight. Most likely you all won't hear from me until Friday.
Let's see...Oh! Before I go, I need help with one tiny thing. Sparkle-chan, I know you've given me the html code to make a post box go to the left. I tried it out on the post boxes and imeem playlist, but they won't move properly! More specifically, my intro box won't move to the left properly, and the rest just stubbornly refuses to move. T.T I spent so many hours working on this site, and I got so mad when nothing was working right. If anyone has any pointers, I'd appreciate it. I wanted a new layout for the New Year, but unfortunately, this was all I could do! [Originally, L was going to be the theme but I couldn't come up with any good ideas for a wallpaper. Alas!!]
All right. I'll shut up now.
Best wishes to you all on 2009!!
Edit: I just realized something. The links to the your backroom and stuff is in the introduction. You have to scroll down to see them. Bah! I'll fix that later. -____-
