Fluid Pudding was down yesterday, and when I say Fluid Pudding I mean this very website—not me. (I have been called “Pudding” before. A few people have asked, “Are you Fluid Pudding?” Honestly, I love when that happens because it makes me feel like Parker Posey.)
So, because the site was down, I wasn’t able to update, meaning I failed at my own personal NaBloPoMo. BUT, what if I update twice today? Would that make up for it? Here’s the beautiful thing: I didn’t give myself any rules. I rarely do, because I trust that I’ll do the right thing. Let’s see what happens.
Me: I’m trying to teach myself the marching band dance break.
Meredith: Why would you do that?
Me: Because I’m 48 and dependable and who knows when they might need me to step in?
Harper: Don’t ever do that again.
We’re not completely out of the woods with the site (or the use of clichés). I’ve been told I have to go into my site code and change some things.
Obstacle #1: Go into my site code. Obstacle #2: Change some things.
I’m giving myself three days.
Day One: Pretend I don’t have to figure out how to find my site code. Go to a marching band competition. Maybe eat a funnel cake.
Day Two: Make some hot tea and take some deep breaths and figure out how to go into my site code.
Day Three: Change some things.
