I'm not sure how many of you know this... I'm kind of a nerd. In fact, I might actually be a geek. The highlight of my weekend? Finally getting my head wrapped around the html code of this blog. That pretty much qualifies me as a nerd, right?

I've taken two java programming classes, and I forgot how much fun it is until I started playing with html. I'm not great at java programming, but I can read it and can normally figure out what the program is supposed to do. I think I finally got there with html. If you click over to the blog, you'll see some subtle changes. I figured out how to underline the titles and change the font to a non-standard one. It took me a long time, but it was FUN.

I know... Rachel = NERD.

The biggest html miracle of all was worked at our design blog, RV Designs. It is still a work in progress, but it's pretty snazzy. I figured out all sorts of cool things--how to put links at the top of the posts and change all sorts of little details. Up until now, Victoria and I's blog design business has been based on our ability to use photoshop. But NOW, I feel like we are very legit. We can actually change things having to do with the code. I seriously was on a high for awhile because I was so excited about html. I know... I am not cool at all.

So, if you would, please go look at RV Designs? I promise, I won't ask you to go all the time. Just this once. Because I am so proud. So so proud. (Did I mention that I CAN WRITE HTML CODE KIND OF NOW???) Please go look. Please?

Also... we have paying customers! Victoria and I are actually making money, the kind that you can take to J. Crew and buy things! Eventually our business will be worth, like, a million doll hairs! (30 Rock, anyone?) But seriously, we are going to have some fun stuff posted periodically over there, so you might as well add us to your google reader.

Nerd out.

(Oh, and I'd like to thank everyone for being so supportive of my twittering. I AM HAVING FUN SO THERE.)


  1. I don't have much to say, I'm just surprised/proud that I beat Victoria to the first comment. But I can say this, I've know you were a nerd for years and years and years. Way to go becoming even nerdier.

  2. Way to go, Rach! I totally understand that exhilarating feeling when you've figured out some HTML code! :) That's right - we're both nerds (although you're a smarter, more HTML knowledgable nerd than I am). Seriously - can you please move to KC soon so we can be nerds together?! :)

  3. Court--bravo, I'm proud you beat Vic! Thanks for loving me through the nerd.

    Kristin--um, I'd love to be a nerd with you in KC. It does not look good, but maybe we could hang out this decade? At least once?


A comment? For me? You shouldn't have. But please do.
