Eventually, I Will Get This Blog Format Sorted Out

For the 19 years that we were married, my ex-wife ordered the ham and cheese omelet. Every time we ate breakfast out. Without fail.

Oh let me guess, I would say....

And then I met Ross a couple of years ago. Everywhere we go, every time breakfast is still available... Ross orders the ham and cheese omelet. I picture Ross and my ex-wife together. Eating omelets until they puke.

Me, I'm a change guy. I have eaten every item on the menu. I will order some shit just to say I've eaten it. I will re-arrange furniture, clothes, anything. Unfortunately, every once in awhile I screw things up by changing them. That's why Ross and my ex ate the same thing every miserable day. Because one day they knew, if they ordered something different, they were gonna hate it. It had happened to them. Maybe in a previous life.

That's fear baby. These people live rigid and structured lives and they don't want someone screwing that up.

So a few weeks ago, I screwed with the format of this blog. That was a dumb thing to do. I liked the old blog format. So I keep trying to get the format back to something aesthetically pleasing and colorful. Only it's not letting me. I have lost the original template. I keep thinking I will get this sorted out but now I am beginning to wonder.

So forgive me while I try to find something I like. Right now, my ex and Ross are looking pretty smart.

After you started off my day with a hearty chuckle, I had to come check out your blog. I'm glad I did! I'm adding you to my feed reader. I'm also going to look at changing the format of my place because you've inspired me. I'm a try everything once kind of person, too, although I do frequently return to favorite things.

This format works good on a mobil device like I-phone. Loads fast as do the comments. You are right that it is a bit stark on a computer screen but maybe a add a few pictures if possible? I noticed sometimes in order to post a comment one needs to do a preview and then publish. That said regardless of appearance I come for content. This ain't no strip joint.

Someday, I will reveal all; however, for now, it's the vaguely anonymous 1/8th pic. You're fun, Brian. I look forward to reading more.

This format is WAYYYYYYY better. Leave it alone.

I think - this format sucks - pretty ugly. But should it matter? We're here for content.

The format is fine...and you can select from a menu of 7 different "formats" at the top of the blog. Classic works for me. Ditto on the content.
