Let’s pretend for a moment that making a new layout for Rachel.nu was the best use of my time today. It’s not like I have a Japanese test tomorrow, or anything. Oh, wait.
I just couldn’t take that orange monstrosity anymore, alright? I was proud of it at the time, but I think I was more proud of the fact that I finally got it done after having the header image sitting around for two weeks than I was proud of how it actually looked. I became disillusioned with it rather quickly. That, about a month, was the shortest time I’ve had a layout up in a long time, actually. Probably since at least a couple years ago.
Anyway, please let me know what you think of this one. You might need to execute a hard refresh if things don’t seem to be showing up correctly for you.
I think it’s getting to the point where I should make a “past layouts” page. I’ll get on that.
On Friday night, there were some guys playing with a ball in the hall at a right-angle to mine. I was in the bathroom in that hall when suddenly I heard the deafening roar of water rushing through the pipes. The ball had hit and broken a sprinkler head, so all three of the sprinklers at the far end of the hall were spraying, putting out some imaginary fire. It was pretty intense:
The bathroom on the right is the one I had been in–look how close the water is getting! Thankfully my hallway was untouched… the people living in the flooded hallway were not allowed back in their rooms until this evening (Sunday). I doubt the people responsible will come forward, but I hope they have at least learned their lesson and won’t play ball in the hallway again. The resident advisors DID warn us that something like this could happen.
Maybe the sprinklers were putting out the fires of their egos, eh? Apparently one of the guys ran back into the hall to get his ball, but left before he could be identified. I get that he was probably scared of being caught, but it’s annoying. I feel so bad for the people who were affected.
