The One With 3 More Skins
December 10, 2004 | Friday | 11:08 PM | Nikki | 11:08 PM | Comments (4)

Amazingly, I kept to my promise and managed to get 3 more skins up and running. The two "additional" layouts are a blue and yellow Brad Pitt layout (I know I've used that picture about 20 times in layouts, but it's simply the best one of him. And those colors are the colors to our rival school... but it's almost Notre Dame colors, so it evens out), and a tealish layout with my new tennis hunk Marat Safin. I found that picture at adidas.com, so credit to them. But don't worry, Andy still out does him in every category (and yes, including tennis. I was an idiot not to tape the Safin/Roddick match at the tmc this year). Speaking of which, the third one is a whole new layout with him. I couldn't help myself. In my head this layout looked awesome, but of course the longer i worked on it the crappier it started to turn out. The final product is not good. But, I was trying to find a nice big picture of Mardy Fish, but man, I can't find anything. I tried using the google search, and I get small pictures of him and then random pictures of federer and Andy. Weird. I did manage to find one usable picutre of him from a couple years ago, but someone had to write thier dumb logo all over it.

You know, we're supposed to get a lot of know sunday and monday, and maybe even a bit throughout the week. Maybe the next time I blog I'll be talking about how great my day off was! Or, I just totally jinxed it, and all the schools around us will get off but my school. Seems like that's what happens all the time anyway.

The One With Davis Cup
December 5, 2004 | Sunday | 9:56 PM | Nikki | 9:56 PM |

Well, the davis cup was this weekend. And even though the US didn't win, it wasn't a complete blowout, and the boys truly did try their hardest, they were just outplayed on the stupid clay. After watching fridays matches without knowing the results it was decided that I would just look at the scores when I woke up to protect my health and sanity. But you know, it's quite hard to sleep knowing your favorite player is playing, so I broke my promise of never watching the live scoring i made to myself after the Olympic match against Hass (that was absolutely horrible, and i could have swore i was starting to fell chest pains), and watched the last 2 sets of Andy's match tick away. Actually, after he lost the second, I had to leave and listen to some Enya to try and calm down a bit, but that worked like crap, so I actually tried Metallic, which seriously almost worked better then Enya, but neither helped so about 20 minutes later I was back looking at the scoreboard. Oh well, he still quite possibly played his best clay court matches ever, and hopefully that's what he'll remember when he starts the European clay court season next year.

Another thing, I've been playing around with some new layouts, well, one new layout and about 2 or 3 additional skins, so hopefully I'll get those up in a couple days. maybe. I also finally updated my desktop picture.
