I have been blogging since the fall of 2002. That's three and a half years of musings, rants, and the occassional good post (because as a friend told me, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while....).
Last night, I decided to go with another template to integrate it with the look of our main website. The template was sort of a Dale Earnhardt, Sr. paint scheme, minus the big number. (If you didn't know there was a 'Sr', you are confessing you are a serious NASCAR Johnny Come Lately.) Anyway, I really dug the black background and white text. Then Kelsey saw it.
It's not so much what she said....at first. I just saw the raised eyebrow and heard the "Hmmm." So I pestered her for a reveiw and she finally said "It looks closed. Like, private. It's not open at all...". She was right...it made my blog look like some super secret spy stuff. Therefore, in the interests of glasnost, I changed it again. Frankly, I'd move the whole mess over to our website except that so many people are zeroed in on this URL.
In tech news, a few days ago, my mom ordered a new iBook. Well, new to her. It was a high end refurbished 14 inch. Imagine my shock today when Jackson told me "There's an iBook replacement out today....". I checked the website and there it was.
It has a wide screen, a ton of great features, a 60 gig HD and vastly improved keyboard (as Jackson says, "You can't get jelly under the keys..."). And it was only fifty bucks more....
One quick call to 1.800.I'mfreakingout.apple and they issued a return number and will pay the shipping (it hadn't even arrived yet.) Tonight Jackson and I made the pilgrimage and bought her the MacBook. It is a sweet little machine. Jackson said something to the effect of "I have an amazing Grandma. She iChats. She's got a Macbook. She's got a Razr." Amazing indeed.
