Ch-ch-ch-changes...

After over a year using the default Blogger template, I decided to try my luck and installing a new template. I still haven't quite figure out how to post a photo on my profile, but since I didn't have one before I figure it's no great loss for the majority of the public. It was fun trying to figure out how to make the change just right. I have always felt like I should learn more about HTML and when I see how almost everyone I know is learning Moveable Type. All that is too much for me to learn all at once, but my just tapping out some HTML code in Word makes me feel like an Amish guy building a set of shelves by hand instead of heading over to IKEA for some BILLY.

This weekend should be beaucoups fun, as I am playing host to two old friends from college who also happen to be current (or former) blog folk - J.Po and Spice. I expect a weekend of Chicago adventures and reminiscing about long ago times. And Chicago Style pizza...mmm...pizza...

Tune in next Monday for the excitement. I'll be more careful abuot revolving doors this time, but I can't promise I won't find some new way to humiliate myself.

I like the purty colors, but I'm going to keep thinking of you as a morbidly obese, hairy woman whether you post a picture or not. I think www.imageshack.us is probably the best free picture host.

Change scares me. Although I do like the new look -- so very many stars.

And make sure you ask Spice to re-enact her jacket-less run through the cold for you. It amuses.

After all, Elmo seems equally disinterested in both...

I have a hard time believing that Elmo was traumatized by Katy Perry's decollatage after discovering that he had already "been arou...
