You may have noticed that in lieu of my avatar, a white mouse has started to appear all over the internet. Don’t stop drinking now, it’s not you, it’s me. I grew bored with looking at my head anytime I go online and see my unsightly self in my avatar picture. So I discarded myself and introduced the White Mouse, if only just to annoy my cat.
In related news, I recently became a doctor. Since I’m not a real doctor (as I’m repeatedly told) but a PhD, I don’t venture to operate on live subjects yet. For starters, I doctored my blog because it annoyed me how hyper-organised, super-streamlined and impeccably neat it was. So I broke it for the kick out of it.
I certainly hope you don’t hate the face of my broken blog, on the other hand, it looks now more or less as I intended. I wanted bright reds and blues (same as the colours of my national flag and about a gazillion other national flags) and greys and whites for balance (same as the colour of my face, especially the healthy-looking grey). It’s not like I gave it a thought.
As further proof that I haven’t been giving my blog a thought for the last week, I attach a gallery of runners for my blog header. My favourite tenement, booze and cigarette shots didn’t quite work out, so I settled on the current messy splashes of colour. With the header, you might see I changed my tagline too, which calls for a disclaimer: if I had a unicorn, I assure you I wouldn’t eat it. (I’d sell it on eBay.)
Besides documenting social housing life and not lunching on unicorns, I gave up on my blogging schedule. *gasp and dramatic pause* I put down my meticulously alliterative categories mostly because I no longer want to be limited to posting cat pictures only when it’s the day of Caturday Cuteness. Now I have just a few simple, generic categories, and I’ll be posting in them as I choose. In your face.
I can’t claim that a scheduless schedule will sit better with my life, as I of course don’t have one, but it will definitely work better with my work. Speaking of what works, I’ll be happy to hear your thoughts on my new blog look and functionality, especially when you discover that something isn’t working. Such as me, I should be working now.
