How do you delay a chain of animations that happen on page load?

Hi guys,

I have this jquery code below, but whatever I do, it does not seem to stop the animation from happening until a certain time has passed after the page has loaded.

I thought that by adding the .delay(4000) in the script below, it would stop anything from happening until that time has passed, but when I load the page, part of the animation still runs first before the delay kicks in.....

Could someone be kind enough to show me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks so very much!


<script language=javascript type='text/javascript'>

$(function(){

$("#hot")
            .delay(4000)
            .addClass('changecolor')
         .animate({left: '+=50', top: '-=50',"height": "50px", "width": "50px"}, 1000)
           .animate({'margin-top': '-50px'}, "slow",
               function() {
 
    $("#hot").hide();
  }
               );
});


</script>

$(function(){

$("#hot").delay(4000)
	.queue(function(){
		$("#hot").addClass('changecolor').dequeue()
		.animate({left: '+=50', top: '-=50',"height": "50px", "width": "50px"}, 1000)
		.animate({'margin-top': '-50px'}, "slow",
		function() {
			$("#hot").hide();
		})
	});
})
