Look at what I did!
Okay, it’s probably not NEARLY as exciting to you as it is to me, but I installed a theme!Â By myself!Â And tweaked it!!
Now, granted, it’s far from perfect.Â I’m having trouble with my Flickr plugin, and I can’t get things to line up right, my “Asides” are all scrunched up,Â but I think I did pretty well, considering that I’m a techological idiot.
I realized last night that I really am a wannabe programmer, and I had the realization in the most unlikely of places: Chuck E. Cheese’s.Â I know, I know.
Okay, sidenote.. have you BEEN to Chuck E. Cheese’s lately?Â I know that I personally have not paid the mouse a visit since I was young enough to actually have a birthday party there in my honor.Â IT IS DIFFERENT.Â Sadly, for the worse.. it’s sterile.
The ball pit?Â Gone.Â The tubular climbing device that takes up half the establishment?Â Gone.Â The normal sized air-hockey table?Â GONE.Â Yes, there’s a row of skeeball, but you can find more arcade goodness at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in Gatlinburg.
But what caused me to have this realization was watching the “floor show”.Â You know I have a slight obsession with puppets (I LOVE PUPPETS!), and the floor show always constituted (to me) as a puppet show. (Except when they were immobile.. then it REALLY freaked me out.) Last night, the bird-girl (Birdie?Â Maybe?) had a twitch in one of her pigtails.Â It was driving me batty.Â And I actually thought, “Some code needs to be fixed.”Â I’m not naive enough to think that it’s actually that simple, but the sheer fact that I wandered to lines of code in a Chuck E. Cheese startled me.
Anyway, enough of me blabbering.Â So, to sum up: I installed my first theme all by myself, and I did some tweaking.Â I still need to tweak some more.Â But look at what I can do!Â And Chuck E. Cheese is sad now. (But they do serve wine.)
