I just saw the e-mail today that the book I helped write is going to press on Monday!! It’s called Adapting to Web Standards: CSS and Ajax for Big Sites
, and I wrote a chapter about AOL.com
. It’s available for pre-order now, of course, and would make a great
Christmas gift for your favorite web nerd – they might even like two or three copies (really, they might).
Writing the book (well, my chapter) was… difficult. I don’t think I’ll write another one any time soon, at least while I have a full-time job. It was a great experience, don’t get me wrong, and Christopher
and Victor, our editor, handled all the hard bits. I’d always wanted to write a book, and am grateful that they gave me the opportunity to write a chapter for this one.
I can’t wait to hold a copy in my grubby mitts and hear from folks what they think of it (good or bad).
For those who don’t yet understand my many Flying Spaghetti Monster references, CNN has an article. For the record, I am not anti-religion; I am anti-“let’s teach ‘intelligent design’ in science classes.” Big difference.
My husband is home, yay!
The office now has closet doors (that match! Way to go above and beyond, contractor!) and it’s time to pick a paint color, yay!
I FINALLY saw some awesome tv tonight, yay!
Potty-training hasn’t been nearly as horrible as I remember, yay!
It’s Friday, yay!
