More reworking, more insomnia

After yet more complaints from network and dsl users, I've done a little reworking on the code for Let me know if the site loads a little more quickly now. I might move the site altogether to a new server, perhaps to the same company which now hosts

Speaking of, I'm pleased to say that it seems to be a hit among Jon's fans. I've gotten many wonderful comments and well-wishes from people all around the globe, and as I type this I have a mailbox full of more content donations. Thanks to everyone who supported this effort (and to Teta Micika who dutifully reads my web-blabbing with love).

My winter vacation is almost over, and I have yet to get my big Croatian booty on a regular sleeping schedule. Even though my first day back at work is less than a week away, I find myself feeling awake and energized at 3:30 in the a.m., and dreadfully sleepy at noon. Monday is going to be painful... I feel some major work blunders coming on. I hate mornings.

But I love my rats. And I miss my job.... Monday.


AND IIIIIIIIEEEEEEIIIIIII will always love you!!!!!!!

Hi Drina and everyone,

The "Critic's Choice Awards" show is on tonight (Saturday, January 10), on E! cable channel, at 8 pm (east coast usa time). Am not getting my hopes up that they'll have Jon in their memorial section (not even sure if their show has a memorial section). But I'll be watching, just in case.

Sure hope your sleeping schedule gets back on track Drina!

Klara, stop singing to me. Your voice sucks!

Fingers crossed Judy B!

The video will be set for 1.0 a.m. here in the UK.

Did anyone see the Critics Choice Awards? I fell asleep during it. :( Um, apparently my dreams were better than the show, 'cause I stayed asleep. :)) But I don't know if they had Jon or not. Did anyone watch the full show?

Also, the TV Zone (issue number 171) which John H told us about (thanks again John!!!), the issue that has a pic and obit on Jon is in the US now. I found some at Dalton's Bookstore.

It's cool to see that other people know what great pets rats can make. I still miss Benny & Joon terribly. They rest side by side in my parent's yard (well I think THEY are actually in heaven waiting for me). I want to get another rat someday , but this time I think I might go to the SPCA for one - believe it or not, they always have them there. Kinda sad...
