Ahhh, I feel justified

Left-justified, that is. I couldn't bear the sight of my centered-text site. That's why I haven't been around. It's not like I haven't been on the web, remember I've been to the end of the internet. I just have issues with the fact that I'm a designer and yet I haven't "designed" my own blog. I don't know how. There. I said it. I'm getting old in my field. I am a print designer and print is dying. I'm getting help, though. Not for my dying media, but for my blog. It will be a masterpiece. And I'll shout out my front door,"HEY ELDER UCHTDORF! LOOK WHAT I CREATED!!!"

(Today I ripped out all the dead stems out of my hostas and made a four foot tall ghost out of them. It is scary - but not in a Halloween way. I didn't even whisper to Elder U about that one.)

So while I haven't been on my blog, I have been ghost-writing a couple others as well as hitting "next blog" a few times just to see what the bloggods wanted me to see. I saw a blog about a guy in Argentina who has never been cared about and who was plotting his revenge. The Care Bear inside me forced me to write a comment about how I cared about him and maybe he could forgive and puppies and butterflies and hearts ... luckily, in the nick of time (what does that mean?) my inner-scrooge had concocted an entire scenario for me in which a bitter Argentinian followed my comment back to my left-justified blog and found a way to add me to his list. So I didn't post it. The next blog I saw was kept by a Japanese girl. She put "LOL" in between words, after all sentences and pretty much anywhere there was text. My first thought was that she didn't know what that TLA (three-letter acronym) meant only that it was "American" and maybe on her Hannah Montana notebook. Upon further investigation I noted the site was covered in pictures of the Jonas Brothers and using my time in Japan as a guide, she probably was LOLing the whole time - even if it was more like a tiny giggle with her hand over her mouth. That made me LOL in a similar fashion.



These girls look like they are on their way to Creative Escape 09.

I'm so glad the hens link is on your much-viewed blog. I feel safe now. Side note: methinks "methinks" is the strangest word in the scriptures.

methinks the chickens are feeling safer by the day as well. this is an issue that needs exposure. What better way to get it than to link it on my blog and share some of my five daily hits.

did you click on the "vegetarian starter kit"? it's all in the details.

methinks those girls in that picture look like they came straight out of a Cirque Du Soleil show.

Hi! I am a cancer survivor also. Lymphoma that went crazy in my neck and all the way down to my liver. I read your blog because my beautiful daughter sent it to me. I laughed and cried and thanked Heavenly Father for people who understand the whole gains and losses of Cancer. I am almost a year out and feeling great. Good days and Bad days, but loving the time. Every day is a great blessing and I learn new things constantly. Bless you for your honesty and sharing!
