Katie is going to hate what I’m about to say – I’m going to be moving this blog again soon.

There’s a good reason for this though – I’m in the process of learning more about WordPress and I want to integrate some of my individual blogs into blog with multiple areas of interest. OMSH has really stimulated my desire to learn more about this platform that I write on so that I can understand the technical side of it. If I can get my brain wrapped around Sharepoint, I can do this. I know the basics of good web design. Now it’s time to expand that knowledge with blog design.

There’s a couple of blogs – 70×7 Project and Pig E. Bank Adventures that won’t be integrated into the new site since they are more project driven than my other musings.

But I just wanted to let you know that this is in the works

Saturday I ended up playing a game of Scrabble backwards. It didn’t start at as a backwards scrabble game, but it ended up that way because of R.’s process-oriented thinking.

You see. I had this update planned for Pig’s Site of Pig playing scrabble with his family. I had a list of words that I wanted to use, and I’d pretty muched figured out the scrabble layout to use those words. Then I came up with a couple more words that I couldn’t work in. R took my word list, alphabetized it, and then started laying out the words in a grid. Once he got the grid working, he laid it out on the scrabble board. We got all the words on the board and then the backwards scrabble game commenced.

Here’s the final board that we used.
The starting point

The hard part of playing scrabble backwards is figuring out the order in which the words come off the board. A couple times I had to back up and replace words. I either took them off and left a part of the scrabble grid disconnected from the rest of the grid or it was just the wrong order so I had to back up and rethink what I needed to take off.

All in all I was pretty happy with the results and you can see the “game” here.

I just finished an update to Pig’s web site. I’ve got one more update to do for tomorrow. But I’m coming up with some good ideas.

When your boyfriend won’t come near you because you’ve got a good case of the creeping crud, what do you do with yourself??

In my case, I update my picture web site  (because I’ve been very lax with that website as of late) and I tinker with Microsoft Movie Maker and get some of the video R and I shot while we were on vacation edited and uploaded onto youtube for Pig E. Bank’s Blog.

I lead an exciting life, really I do.
