hyper about html

I've been sort of blogging along here, not really knowing what I am doing. I've been feeling a bit inadequate about my inability to write in italics and bold or do hyperlinks. Despite great advice from Lisa R and Matt, it's taken time and the fight is not over, but...

Hey, everybody,
look whose blogging now

I just want to thank Matt for saving my world and Lisa R because she rules. Thanks, you two!

I would also like to send a shout out to Rachel because I love her puddings.

I know there is so much more to learn about blogging and html. Like, what in the heck does html stand for? I am guessing that it isn't an abbreviation for hotmail.

Cheers Ian! Incidentally, I am a complete html numpty and I don't care ... ;-)

Figuring out the html, I feel like I have just climbed Mt. Fuji!

Thanks for your encouragement, ladies!

Lisa said...

where's my shout out?

Lisa Rullsenberg said...

I'm gonna be dead boring and say HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language.

But you didn't really need to know that did you.

Well done on the links though.

ian said...

lisa r, thanks for all of your help with the "hypertext markup language"! I feel like I have been freed!

lisa k, "shout out"? until you get your own blog (like you keep threatening to do) all I got for you is some "shouting at". Get a blog! If I can do it, surely you can.

Lisa said...

"shouting at"? You forgot my birthday you shit, I'll do the shouting thanks!!

ian said...

Lisa, no offence... I forget my own birthday. The world does not stop for anyone's b-day, babe, not even yours. A belated b-day kiss for you: x

So what did you turn, like 30? xxx

Lisa said...

Not everyone's as old as you baby.

As a matter of fact the world did stop on Sunday for my birthday. At least for a few hours. I got Matt to do karaoke.

Ah! If you got me drunk enough I'd do almost anything! Make me sound like a boring bastard at your peril! You didn't see me camping it for some barnstorming performances in The Caucasian Chalf Circle, and Calamity Jane.

Rachel said...

What do you mean, "almost". Do tell.

ian said...

Rachel, not to disappoint you, but I'm pretty sure Matt's "almost" includes getting drunk and doing stuff like handing out flyers for a political cause in the nude and breaking into a zoo to free the baby seals in the nude. Of course, once he got to prison, your guess is as good as mine. One thing is for sure, they don't have karaoke behind bars to help you pass the time...
