Niggle niggle niggle.
First the wedding plans collapsed. Ms. Cheeky Bitch of reception venue called me last week to tell me she’d (oopsie) double booked us. Translation – a better deal came along?! Yeah so we cut the budget by half (a week in the sun is worth the sacrifice) and thwarted her menu ideas, but really. There’s no call for that, lads.
Much nail biting this weekend.
Then TAT and my parents and my best bud all began to place ideas in a bucket until they soon expanded like a volatile gas and exploded with a glorious sticky sugary goo all over normal wedding conceptions. And we still get to go to Thailand. Bonus.
Then there’s the blog. Yes boring subject I know, but in my defense, the theme that appeared for a day or two… while it was lovely, it was niggly. It niggled me for ages. The type was too small, the layout too white, the spacing too sporadic. It was a designer’s layout, not a hopeless hippie layabout’s.
It’s back to wood for me, so. Cozy and content, dark and slightly chilling. That’s me.
Besides, I’d written to yer man what designed it and he very kindly told me what nonsense I should be editing in the nonsense fields, so if he were to visit and find that I’d poopoo’d (sorry but that’s the best word I can think of) the theme completely, he may just order a hit on me. I can’t stand to hurt people’s feelings.
Besides, just look at the name of this theme… ABSYNTHE. Isn’t that the most un-niggliest of words you’ve ever known? I always like at least some aspect of this blog to be hallucinogenic in some way. That’s who I am.
