If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed some recent funkiness with The Dungeon emoticons. img31
First they disappeared…then they came back but were too teeny-tiny to see…& now they’re back again, but work a bit differently than they did before. img18 Just so you know, this has to do with the WordPress plug-in that runs the smilies, which is a bit out of date. img43
Luckily, we have an awesome web gal (she knows who she is img32 ) behind the scenes, who has been working on the issue. She found a new plug-in to get our emoticons back up & running… But as I said, they work just a little bit differently now. img39
Knowing how smart my bright little Darlings are, you may have figured this out already, but just in case…
All the emoticons are there, just below the New Comment box, as usual, but you may not be able to see the all at one time. You’ll notice a small link that says, “more…” Click on that, & the entire collection of emoticons will appear. Click “less…” (which should be “fewer,” I know; the writer in me has a seizure every time I see it img28 ) & the majority of them go away again.
It’s a bit of a pain, & I did ask Web Goddess if she could find a way to change it so all of the smilies are there all the time, but until we (read: she img15 ) can work out all the bugs, we’ll just be grateful that we have workable emoticons, okay?
Part 2 of today’s Dungeon Service Announcement is something else you may have already noticed…
The WIPs and Chains sidebar has been updated!!! img26
This time, we’ve decorated for the July 4th holiday—also known as Independence Day, of which Mistress Heidi is a big fan. img24
As always, the new additions to the sidebar are funny, snarky, & maybe even a little thought-provoking. img44
I hope you enjoy everything & will even take a moment to let me know what you like best.
That should do it for today’s announcements, so now you’re all caught up. Feel free to stick around & enjoy our new toys, or leave a random comment about whatever the heck you’d like. After all, it’s Monday…nobody expects much from us on a Monday. img41
Happy Sunday, my Darlings!
How are you? How has the week treated you? Are you ready to share your good news & gratitudes with us today?
This week, I AM HAPPY that I’ve got ideas & am making progress on a situation (totally non-writing related, fyi) that’s been hanging over my head for a while now. Just one of those things you have to take step by step, even if some of the steps are loose & cracked & threaten to trip you. But it’s coming together (knock on wood!) & I’m beginning to be more excited than apprehensive over it now.
I AM HAPPY, too, that I’ve got some great people in my life. I’m not even sure they realize how much I appreciate them, but I shall endeavor to tell them the next time I see them. And I am just lucky that they have been there when I needed them, have been friendly & knowledgeable & willing to put up with me! And trust me, I can be quite a hassle to put up with.
I AM HAPPY that I’ve discovered BBC America’s Sherlock. Yes, I realize the series began in 2010, so I’m rather behind in jumping on the bandwagon. But better late than never, right? Ironically enough, I never really intended to start watching it. I’m a huge fan of the Robert Downey, Jr. Sherlock Holmes movies & CBS’s Elementary, but for some reason I never seem to catch anything on BBC. Then last weekend, I was flipping through the channel guide & just happened to notice that three episodes of Sherlock were going to be on BBCA in a row—& they were the very first three episodes. So I thought, “Hmm. Should I?” I even posed the question on my Facebook & Twitter pages. The answer from readers was a resounding YES!!!
Well, okay, then. Maybe I should give it a try. It took me a while to get around to actually watching any of it, but almost from the very beginning, I was riveted. My first solid thought about the show was, “Oooh, Sherlock is a smart-ass. I like him already.” And the longer I watched, the more I liked it. I love Watson! I love Sherlock’s snark & the way his brain works. And I love the mystery/crime drama aspects. So yeah, it was definitely a good choice.
And finally, I AM HAPPY (I guess ) that we had another free preview weekend of HBO & Cinemax last week!
I say “I guess” because I have almost no space left on my DVRs, yet I feel compelled to record movies I haven’t seen, so the “yay! free movies!” thing comes with a side order of eep! pressure & nervousness.
I’ve barely made a dent in the last batch of movies I recorded during a free preview weekend, but that didn’t keep me from recording even more viewing material for my time on the Torture Cycle: The Judge, The Other Woman, Ride Along, Gone Girl, Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones, Annabelle…
Have you seen any of these? What did you think? I have to admit, as much as I want to see Annabelle, the idea of it sort of freaks me out. I love horror, but possessed dolls scare the pee out of me.
So how about you guys? Let us know what kind of week you had & what you’re feeling thankful for at the moment. I hope there’s lots, & I hope you’ll take the time to share! img32
You’ve heard of “People of Walmart,” right? So please tell me what this is…
People of Walmart Bags???
Okay, this one just makes me chuckle.
“Madam, I need you to remain calm and trust me—I’m a professional. But beneath this pillow lies the key to my release.”
Of course, she misinterpreted my intention entirely.
