I recently decided that the blog needed a little face lift.
But in keeping with my broader feelings about plastic surgery, I’m pretty terrified of surgical change. I didn’t want anything that was drastic or involved pain. Or an unrecognizable result. I guess what I wanted was just a little makeover — a fresher and better looking version of what I already had.
So here we are. What do you think? It’s a subtle change but it’s more me. Bravo to Cynthia at NW Designs for understanding what I wanted.
I have a few other random nuggets for you, since my brain is awash in holiday weekend wine.
- Since the whole of humanity — except for my family — seems to have a vacationy destination for Memorial Day, it seems that television programmers have saved all of their worst possible options for this weekend. I mean, if you want to watch Throw Momma From the Train or Leprechaun 2, your time has come. Or, you could watch Super Shark. Not sold? Have a look at the compelling description below.
- I doubt that I’m the first one to bring it to your attention, but this marriage proposal is all over the Internet this week. If you thought you had a great “how I got engaged story,” I hate to tell you: This guy one-upped you. Big time. If you need your faith in humanity restored, have a look. And don’t even think about saying it’s cheesy — I call your bluff and know that you’re really grinning quietly in a corner while nobody is looking. Or maybe I’m just projecting.
- I also have a far less widely circulated video to show you. Consider it an exclusive preview before it breaks worldwide. If you’ve been here before, you know that I am not a “look at my cute kids on video” person. I’m really not. In fact, this might be a Fordeville first, so just indulge me in this isolated incident. I know it’s 27 seconds of your life that you can’t get back, but it’s a holiday — and Moves Like Jagger: Pre-School Dance Mix, is great for the beach.
You have to respect how he really tries for those high notes.
Now that they have sealed the talent competition, we’re going to slather up in sunscream and conquer the bathing suit portion of the weekend. In a pirate ship, naturally.
And tonight, if Super Shark does not have an encore presentation, I can only hope that Sharktopus will be on again.
