What with the weirdness that is Wacko Jacko

I had a strange experience last night on chat. There are some ladies out there, who shall remain nameless, who are so besotted of a fanged fictitional character that they 'adopted' me as their Mum. It seems I am one of the few Spike-loving-Mums to have come out publicly and declared their devotion. A few happy moments spent with the new family suddenly turned into the wee small hours of the morning, with no MWNN to restrain me.

So I paid for it severely by being very hung-over through lack of sleep. I have to get down to the serious business of some design work for MWNN's birthday present. The silk is giving me real problems as it is so difficult to keep taught and prevent puckering. I'm pleased with the design and love the colours I'm working with but the old eyes are suffering in the gloomy light we have here at the moment. Must make the best of MWNN's absence to work in daylight.

And Tubbyk - start that story - I'm relying on you to take the kick-off. Chapter 1 by the time you get back from Germany! (Oh and rapiers on the lawn about how it will end.)

No season 6 Buffy last night - the Beeb, in its wisdom, showed snooker instead!

I don't see how he can complain. He has been in the public eye long enough to know how the media works. I don't believe he was THAT naive.

Nor do I. The man is seriously sick. Reality/fantasy? Does he know the difference?

Helen, help me out a little here. Two tech. questions

Do I have to use HTML to format my fonts when I post replies in other people's journals - or even my own, like this comment? If I want to reduce the size of the font or strike it through or anything like that - are they HTML commands?

Second question. I have some webspace - courtesy of NTL. I have written some HTML for a page on that space and saved it as txt in wordpad. How do I gain access to the space and how do I upload the code? I have a 30 day trial of a program called Terrapin ftp but can't work out how to get the bloody thing to DO anything.

Yes, font is html.

As for the ftp - I'm not familiar with Terrapin. The info you will need from NTL is the ftp address, then you should just use that with your username and password.
10th-Feb-2003 09:32 am (UTC) - the ftp address
Of my webspace?

Ta ever so. Still haven't worked out precisely where my webspace is or how to access it. But, I will, one day, I will.

This is the info from the ntl website.

Customer homepage URL format = homepage.ntlworld.com/user.name
FTP Server = upload.ntlworld.com
User Name = your username
Password = your password

You are an ANGEL

haven't a clue what to do next - but when I've the time, and the energy, I'll work it out.

How's the submission going?

I believe you've already adopted Buffyx. Is there room in the family for me too. I have a wonderfully cool mom, but her lack of the Spike luv is her only fault.

halo (I've added you to my friends on my livejournal page!)

Oh what the hell - there's always room for one more. Unlike RL where the bedroom/bathroom/kitchen facilities can be severely strained with so many females in the same household. Welcome to the safe-house for all lovers of the daylight-challenged souled-one.

you've already adopted Buffyx Oh . My . God . Have I really? When did I do that? The wee small hours last night in Chat? Perhaps the paperwork has been delayed or something 'cos I can't find her in the family records.
7th-Feb-2003 08:34 am (UTC) - hey there
I have added you too, to my livejournal friends list, hesadevil!
And halo, I adopted hesadevil as my SLM yesterday, we could be sisters!
woohooooooooo! I just hope "SLMom" wont forget all our birthdays! ;)

It would be of great help if I knew when they were. Of course, this would not be a problem if you were my biological daughters 'cos I think I would have been there at the time.
