Three Beautiful Things 04/15/07: Zone, Heller, HTML Playpen

1. I went to the laundromat this evening and was in a zone. I felt like the Eddie Van Halen of clothes washing and drying mastery. I was like Eddie on his best night pouring out "Eruption", so good that I turned my back to onlookers so they wouldn't steal my cleaning, drying, folding techniques.

2. I'm starting to see Catch-22 in everything around me. I think that's Joseph Heller's point.

3. I opened my HTML playpen today. You can type messages in this box! The box I made!

I don't know if you can see what others type in the box, so I'm retyping it here:
cool, typing in the box, thinking outside the box, be the box, see the box, jump out of the box!!
Pretty good HTML!

Marmitetoasty: Thanks for the compliment on my lines. I tried using a US President's ruler as a straight edge, but the HTML people did it better!

Jennifer: No, I don't see your message and now I know how that part of it works. It's a message all for yourself, in the box!

Okay, I just made a comment on your file - Real Kellogg, and it said I was anonymous. I hate that. I didn't want to be anonymous, but just not obvious.

Good job on the html! Good to keep up your brain cells by learning new things.

Call me: Pinehurst in my Dreams

Cool playpen, but didn't save my post... so I put it here.

Pinehurst in my Dreams: YOu've dropped some clues about your identity that I can't quite put together. Do you want to remain unidentified, except your new wonderful nickname? If you'd like me to know who you are, please email me at billy1227@gmail.com

Either way, keep commenting. I sure enjoy reading what you have to say.

Crazy - I can't get this to print my blog - unless I preview it first! (So if you get several posts - you know why)!

Thanks for the compliments. I think sometimes guessing is more fun than knowing. . . Since you are a thinking blogger, I will allow you the priviledge.

I attended Silver King for 3 years, Pinehurst for 6 (including Jr. High) and graduated from KHS in 1972.

I do enjoy reading your blogs and reminiscing about the growing up years.

Half the time, I still dream I live in Pinehurst.
