Kicking the furniture as I learn to make a website.

That's an exaggeration. I kick neither furniture, nor dogs, nor even cats.  However, I do squirt water on cats--our cats--if they climb onto our newly upholstered sofa, which is royal blue if you're wondering, which you're probably not.  "Kicking the furniture" is a metaphor for the expression of frustration. But you didn't need an explanation. Forgive me.
