Whoopdi do!

At home 12:30 am working on logos for my website.
At some point in the near future (in the next few weeks/months) I plan to redo this site. I may also scrap the use of blogger. I may just switch to movabletype. Yes I am that fucking crazy…woooooooo

I also have about 10 sites that I want to develop, plus one for my dad that I have to. I assume by the end of these I will be a low end CSS (cascading style sheet) bad ass.

Today I was at a client meeting and got excited that I will have access to their log files. What the fuck is wrong with me? Oh yeah…thats right, I am hooked on this search engine marketing thing.

On that note I will leave you with Today In History Tuesday, August 19, 2003.
