It's the New Me

Like the new look? A fabulous non-blogging friend of mine spiced it up for me, and I am in their debt forever. I'd give them my soul, but I promised that to Satan years ago in exchange for some cherry flavored pixie sticks.

Hindsight and all that.

We are getting ready for our barbeque here, and you wouldn't believe it-my uncle and one of my cousins, who are based in England (he is in the U.S. Army and so they are stationed over in England for another year) are coming today. I haven't seen them in ten years (my other cousin and my aunt can't make it today, but we plan on meeting up in a few weeks time).

Finally, some family that hasn't disowned me.

God, I really hope it goes well today. I hope lots of people turn up. I hope it doesn't rain. I hope people have fun. I hope they like my homemade apple pie.

Happy Birthday, America.

What to do Helen? I like ALL of your blog looks. Any way they can come up randomly?

Posted by: Roger at July 8, 2004 09:01 PM

holy crap.. very cool...

I'm a creature of habit; solely based on that fact, I like the old look. But Solomon can adapt. I do like the London Streets skin.

And I LOVE that we can now bold and italicize. Excellent!! I always wondered how people got their stuff to be bold or italicized when they posted, and now I see it's just an html command. Cool.

absofuckinlootley beautiful!!! Brava!!!

Well, I immediately switched to the London Street layout. I like a somewhat more muted design for reading stuff...

I'm getting use to the showers that seems to show up from nowhere...if nothing else they do tend to get things moving ;)
Hope your day went well :)

I love the redesign!

Posted by: Jennifer at July 4, 2004 06:18 PM

Hey, looks great! Yes, happy barbeque to you, and all that. I'm having trouble choosing between skins...do I want the street or the phone booth? The street or the phone booth? All too much pressure...

Posted by: cari at July 4, 2004 05:49 PM

...good luck with the party, Helen!

Posted by: Eric at July 4, 2004 05:13 PM

I think it looks great, Helen.

Happy Independence Day!

Posted by: Jim at July 4, 2004 04:46 PM

Have a great fourth, and send some pie my way...

Posted by: mitzi at July 4, 2004 03:40 PM

I like the new look overall.

I hope the BBQ goes well. Happy 4th!!!

Oh, and perhaps one more thing, maybe you should consider switching your photo from the current photo to one of the excellent snaps of you in your Ascot dress and hat. To go better with your new stylish blog design.

Looks very grown up and stylish. We are also having barbeque today at my parents' house. Big party, should be lots of fun.

Happy Independence Day!

Posted by: Random Penseur at July 4, 2004 12:12 PM

p. s. - the party started at 8 a.m. here, Greeks and Portuguese are going crazy... God I hope we win!
p. s. 2 -even the comments look good... great job.

It's looking pretty dark and grey here, Croxie. But we have gazebos that are going up, so a big two fingers to the weather :)

Posted by: Helen at July 4, 2004 11:43 AM

Ooooooo....looks great :)

And have a good BBQ as well :) Not sure what it's like in your end of the UK today, but we've got sunshine :)

Posted by: croxie at July 4, 2004 11:14 AM
