Comments for Mr. Bounce
-->Mr. Bounce: 01/05/07
Ian's parents have a large collection of Mr. Men books and when we visit, Sean likes to read them. Over the recent holiday I read three ones I've haven't read before: Mr. Bounce, Mr. Noisy, and Mr. Small.
Mr. Bounce as the cover art suggests is the size and color of a tennis ball. He also bounces like a tennis ball. In fact, he bounces so much that it's interfering with his quality of life. What does a little yellow man who is too bouncy do? He goes to his doctor of course.
Sean likes this particular Mr. Men story because Mr. Bounce is a ball and later he's a ball with big heavy shoes. Sean knows of another ball with shoes, namely, Kirby. When playing Melee and Air Ride, yellow is one of the options for Kirby. So it makes perfect sense to Sean that Mr. Bounce is actually a yellow Kirby.
I had really wanted to use my down time at work to read. Instead I foolishly decided to try again at adding a tag list to my livejournal. Unfortunately the documentation for the process (especially for the layout I chose to use) is minimal to just outright crap. A lovely LJ member has been helping me with the process but I think pretty soon my inability to figure this out will put me in the "idiots" corner with dunce hat.
Modifying code like this makes me frustrated to irate. I can do it eventually but I hate, loath, despise the process. It always leaves me bloodshot, angry and often times suffering from a migraine. I worked on it for 12 hours and only managed to get a place holder in my sidebar that says: "Someday my tags will go here."
