I'm sure Tim Berners Lee is glad you like the "<ol>" tag :-).

Happy Thanksgiving! *hug*

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

And I honestly have been meaning to comment more. I've just been working my whiskers off. (LIterally! I shaved today!)

I did have a great thanksgiving, thanks! I hope you did as well?

Sorry to hear about the whiskers. But don't worry: they'll probably grow back... (:

They already have. Although my dad thought I cut my hair too short. I wanted it cut before the holiday (and when it gets too long it afros out...)...

Speaking of cuddly cats, which were on your list, I saw some cute stuffed cats at Meijer today when I went to pick up some new CD's (new releases are ten bucks there)...with stuffed animals there's no mess or litter box to clean...:)

making it back to css (no not the stylesheets)
