I’m working on adding a third column to my blog, where I hope to feature a reading list. I’ve spent several hours already buried in HTML code, attempting to make some sense out of its (to me) foreignness. I’m close (I can get a third column to show up) but still without the proverbial cigar (with that third column in place, I can’t yet get all the pretty dots to line up; plus, I get a weird dotted line all the way across my screen; it’s not awful, but I’m more than a bit picky about such things). If anyone has a good grip on HTML and can tell me what to do, let me know! Until I sort things out, you may see a right-hand column popping in and out with various configurations. You’re not going crazy; I am.
In the meantime, entertain yourselves by brainstorming names for our new chipmunk friend. A few weeks after the sad disappearance of Thelonius, a smaller and so far less mischievous chipmunk moved into the vicinity of our patio. We’ve thought of possible names like Francis, Aloysius, etc. – playing more on the monastery monk kind of theme, but we’re not stuck on that. Leave your votes and suggestions in the comments to help us find a moniker for our neighborly chipmunk!
(UPDATE 10/7/07) Great galloping gargoyles, I think I figured out the whole 3-column thing! Let me know if it looks funny on your screen, but it’s all aligned pretty well on mine.
