, I’m having problems with the plugin I use to post to this blog and, though I had posts scheduled for these last few weeks, they didn’t post. I hired someone to write me a new plugin that actually works consistently and it’s not going well. So I’m cranky because I wrote all these posts and scheduled them for you guys to read and here you are with nothing to read because they didn’t post.
I work too hard for there to ever be a week on this blog without a blog post, is all I’m sayin’.
Which brings me to the topic of today’s post which is related. I need to redesign my personal website. It’s not so much how it looks, I’m actually fine with that, but how it works on the back end because it’s been hacked together a billion different times by an idiot (read that as: me).

(My apologies for their not being a post last week. I wrote one. I scheduled it. It just didn’t post and I didn’t notice because I’m knee deep in NaNoWriMo. To make up for it, I’m writing you a shiny new post instead of giving you the one I originally scheduled.)
Last Friday, I went to see a local high school’s performance of my play. That is never not weird. The director had asked me to keep a low profile and not let any of the cast or crew know that I was there because she wanted me to be a surprise for after the show (so they wouldn’t be nervous during).
