Worst Decision Ever

As stated yesterday, my plans for tonight were to make cookies after washing the dishes. I even went so far as to have newspaper with wax paper on top laid out to put the cookies on, and checked more than once to make sure there was enough oatmeal before realizing we didn't have anywhere near enough sugar. Peanut butter too, at that, but I was able to find several peanut-free recipes that listed pudding mix instead. We did have some of it, but alas, there's not a whole lot that can be done without sugar. Maybe I'll still make them on Thursday, or one of those three nights I have off in a row coming up next week, but that left me with alot of free time tonight, so what did I decide to do? Reinstall XP so I could figure out exact directions for Manoah. Even better, all that required clarification was which program to run first. So yeah. I've been from about midnight to right now getting everything set up again, and I gave up on typing out specific directions for myself, because it came to a point where doing that was taking too much time.

Aside from the typing though, Firefox just would not cooperate, which was fun. Well, not Firefox, per se, but rather one of the extensions, being Personal Menu. For some reason, replacing that extension's files with the ones I had backed up on my USB stick (to add custom icons) didn't work, and after that it took me at least an hour to figure out how the CSS file was laid out. Since it's difficult to explain without said file, here's the relevant part of it:

/*set buttons' images */
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-menu{list-style-image:url(menu-small.png)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-menu[chromedir="rtl"]{list-style-image:url(menu-rtl-small.png)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-menu:hover {list-style-image:url(menu-small-hover.png)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-menu:hover:active {list-style-image:url(menu-small-hover-active.png)}

#cm-bookmarks{list-style-image:url(bookmarks.png)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-bookmarks{list-style-image:url(bookmarks-small.png)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-bookmarks:hover{list-style-image:url(bookmarks-small-hover)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-bookmarks:hover:active{list-style-image:url(bookmarks-small-hover-active.png)}

#cm-history{list-style-image:url(history.png)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-history{list-style-image:url(history-small.png)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-history:hover{list-style-image:url(history-small-hover.png)}
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #cm-history:hover:active{list-style-image:url(history-small-hover-active.png)}


Either I was getting the filenames wrong, leaving out the toolbar[iconsize="small"] bits where the icons were small, or using #cm-menu{...} for all of them instead of #cm-button name here, and just... I've had enough for tonight. There are still a few minor details that need to be tweaked, such as the focused tab's color, then other things in Windows itself as well, but I'm not going to so much as think about those until tomorrow. Possibly quite near the end of the day, at that, because Michele hasn't emailed me yet about coming in, so I sent her one before starting the dishes earlier today, then there's also work after that. Towards Heart and Stroke though, I suppose it's as good an indication as any that she doesn't need me this week if she hasn't emailed me yet, but all the same, there's a possibility that she's been so busy she hasn't had a chance, so I'm not going to get my hopes up. As for work, nothing out of the ordinary there. Manoah and I are closing, which will give me ample opportunity to ask if he needs anymore help with his computer, and otherwise, hopefully it won't be too busy.

After that, grocery shopping on Thursday, but the only thing I'm looking forward to about that at this point is seeing if they still have bags of Skittles on sale at 3 for $5. They did last time I went, so of course I bought one of each type, but they've been sitting on my bedside table since then, because I haven't wanted to eat them for hopes that I could still buy more at that price, and have them last even longer whenever I decide to open a bag. To go a completely different direction now, the other unfortunate thing about today was not being able to make much progress on Pic Pic. Finished two more mazes before going downstairs to wash the dishes, but I haven't touched it since then, outside of making sure desmume still works properly just now. I'll definitely finish the other three in that set of 5 tomorrow, but doing more after that remains to be seen.

In the interest of getting a decent sleep just in case I am needed at Heart and Stroke tomorrow though, I'm off to bed. Hopefully Michele responds before I wake up, because otherwise I'm going to assume I have this week off too~
