Notice anything?

I got so freaking sick and tired of dealing with the stupid comments thing that I finally, FINALLY, booted the 7-year-old inscrutable template, replacing it with one of Blogger's 'out of the box' models, which I then promptly started messing with to 'personalize' this page a little.

Bonus - the posts now roll up by year, showing very very clearly just how much I used to post and how much I don't anymore. Ain't nobody got time for that!  OK, that's a lie - because what am I doing right now?  POSTING, that's what.  While being sick, again, and therefore bereft of energy to do anything creative or thinky.  Just trying to breathe here, and work up the energy to go buy some meth precursor to clear the concrete block that is my head.

Along the way I dropped the 'about me' and the blogroll, because nobody comes by here who 1) doesn't already know me and 2) doesn't already read the 2 other people that still post. HOWEVER, if you loved either one, please do let me know and I'll see about reinstating them just as soon as I figure out in Blogger where the 'design' function is so I can start popping in gadgets and widgets and thingies galore.  I could have this thing tarted up like a Fat Tuesday samba dancer in no time!

Also, 'word porn' went away.  *Sigh*  It was time.  Now, can anyone remember any of the words that were ON word porn?  Hmmm?  Abstemious was one.  Rodomontade another.  Pusillanimous should have been on there, but I'm not sure it was.

Next up in blog design - redoing the header image, because it's old, clunky, and doesn't really reflect who I am anymore.  Anyone want to take a shot at that?

Not to change - blog title.  Some things shouldn't ever change.

Is it working for you?  If not, what needs to change?  Because I spent a whopping 10 minutes making the changeover, there is obvious room for improvement.  Your ideas can now be put in the dang comments, so comments, dang it!

It's a brand new world over here!!! A word I became fond of while reading some MSDS is Carboxyhemoglobanimia... it just rolls of the tongue.

I like it! Clean. Simple. All you need, right there. I'll kinda miss the crazy hat-haired lady, though. ;-)

I like it. I wouldn't be in too big of a hurry to add things. When I changed my template, I decided that I liked having little extraneous material in the sidebar. You could always add more later, should you decide that the blog is too bare. There's always time. I mess around with color and type changes often. It's fun.
