random ranting

I’m such a noob with any kind of computer language. Why does it never look like I want it to?
And why the heck does that Goodreads widget doesn’t look like shown on Goodreads? I don’t mean the flash one, I know that doesn’t work on wordpress.com, but the other one, where it says it fits in anywhere. And fitting in it does, but it looks stupid. There’s too much space between the bookcovers. And I have no idea why it looks like it should on Goodreads but not on my blog. Argh, I think I will sign up for HTML and CSS classes at the local  adult education center.
And here I thought blogging was easy.
