on the gay marriage amendment.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

I have had enough. The jokes, the comments, the bashing, and now the proposed marriage amendment? I do not understand the big deal…and I am tired of the christian right constantly trying to tell me how to live. Bush wants to “preserve marriage”, but he and his christian right friends do not get it…so let me put it in terms they might all understand: we want the right to divorce. Does that help W? Do you now understand? All the straight people have the opportunity to marry, screw up their marriage, screw up their kids, and then divorce. How is… Read More »

operation: republican in office

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I bet all Americans (well all Americans that do not want to see the same fiasco as “Operation Brother Jeb: 2000”) feel relieved to hear we now have a plan to hold elections, even if under attack, during the upcoming November election. Perhaps we were fooled by Operation Brother Jeb: 2000 in the 2000 election, but I bet you Bush and friends would love to get in office again with another shenanigan like “Operation No One Changes Presidents During War Times, So Bring it on Right Before the Elections.” A “conflict” or an “attack” right before the elections would likely… Read More »

mac desktops and icons.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Sometimes I cannot work until I am happy with my desktop picture and my icons. I am very picky with my desktops because they often serve as inspirations for new web designs (colors, contrasts, etc) In fact, when I present my web designs at big meetings, I take special care to choose a desktop that will make my design stand out against the background. Crazy? Maybe, but here is where I go to get the goods:Icons… xicons icons Iconfactory icons ResExcellence icons Desktop pictures… MacDesktops’ desktop pictures ResExcellence desktop pictures The Apple Collection desktop picures Spymac desktop picures Enjoy.

fisherman's dilemna, solved!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well, I have been fishing for the last few days, which I enjoy…but I do not enjoy the fishy smelling hands that I have after I get home. After 2 days of no solution…my not so in-law brother in law told me he finally figured out how to kill the smell: sun tan lotion. I had washed my hands 3 times at this point with no luck, so I tried it and it works great! No more fishy smell. Of course wash your hands first…but when the soap does not kill the smell, put some sun tan lotion on them… Read More »

frustration station.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Frustation lies everywhere, either you find it or you don’t…I seem to find it a lot, but finally I can laugh at most of it or at least brush it off. (How many years did that take?) First up…Metra. Boarding my express train is like a Rage Against the Machine video and Metra finally did something about it, they no longer open the first two cars for people at my stop. It finally came to that. I think the older you get, the more rage you have boarding trains, and then comment and waive your fingers at the “out of… Read More »

Great America, Great Commenting

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

This past Saturday I spent most of the day at Six Flags Great America, or I should say I spent most of the day waiting in lines to go on all the major rollercoasters. This was my first visit to Great America this year, and my first year that I bought…well Amy bought season passes for both of us. We are both rollercoaster fans so since the weather was nice we jumped in the car off we went. Since you are in line…yes, in line, not on line (where is the line you are on?) for an hour at a… Read More »

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

For all those people out there that find it acceptable to wear brown shoes with a black outift, or black shoes with a navy outift please do yourself a favor and stop the insanity! We should really have informercials on major fau pauxs (yeah maybe I cannot spell, but I know what shoes to wear with my outfits). Let me break it down for all of you: Black pants or black shirt=black shoes Navy pants or a navy shirt (with jeans/khakis, etc)=brown shoes The only exception…the airline workers. I feel for them and always pay close attention to what they… Read More »

Hiding From Google With robots.txt

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Over the years I have become more paranoid over who sees what on my web sites, and I have learned that one of the most important steps in creating/posting a web site on the web is the robots.txt file that goes with the site and the meta tags for each page. I will not go into how I learned the hard way, but do yourself a favor, check out: http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/robots.html. Know that you can control what search engines indexes.
