Resting-Up Day

Sunday evening was glorious. But if I'm going to hang out at parties and wander out to smoke and walk up and down along the walls looking at everyone else's art, I'm going to pay for it. Yesterday was pretty slow and painful, but I was still lucid enough to get very far with my SBI website.

I put in about fifteen hours working on it and finished most of the preliminaries. I'm now at exactly the stage of deciding the final version of the domain name -- the one thing that is a permanent decision. I'm thinking of variations and need to decide on a day when my head's not so foggy, because once I type in the domain name it's a whole new thing.

One that may get a lot more of my time as the door opens to my doing more writing and less number crunching. I do not enjoy keyword analysis. Trying to guess what ONE word or two-word combination sums up the topic before writing is tough.

But I have the site architecture outline done. I know what the home page will say and have written a rough draft that I edited down from about 1500 words (including descriptions of every section that gets a button on the nav bar) to under 600 words. That's making it clear and punchy.

I may wind up adding more nav bar buttons for new sections or rearranging that outline some, but this is the point where I can start actually doing pages.

Today was spent entirely curled up around myself in my chair passing out from pain. I had to nap in the middle of the day and woke up when my pill wore off. I'm still foggy to the extreme and can't remember if I took my latest pill or not. Counting my pills, I do need to take one. It's time.

I'm not going to get anything else done tonight. It's just that bad a day. I need to rest up and pay the price of going out and having a good time.

I hate it when there's a whole day that I don't accomplish anything.

The up side was that my Kenneth Leslie book, Oil Pastel, Materials and Techniques for Today's Artist arrived. The cover art is cool. I thought it was a photo of a lot of oil pastels scattered around in more or less chromatic order, but it's not -- it's a painting in oil pastel of a lot of oil pastels in chromatic order. Very very cool. I'm reading slowly because of the fog but enjoying it.

I will not be posting tomorrow because I'm supporting Day without a Gay protest about recent laws discriminating against gay marriage. Why people vote in discrimination deliberately scares the pants off me. It's like the Jim Crow laws. If you argue that something is "sacred" then you're talking about religion -- and it's sacred in relation to your religion, not to other religions necessarily or to the nonreligious. Let's finally have some separation of church and state and the government quit horning in on people's private lives.
