despite my congestion, the blog must go on

My wretched cold has moved into my ears. Why my ears? Why not my lungs, like usual? I’m used to hacking stuff up from my lungs; the ear thing, though, that’s just unpleasant.

Not So was sick enough to stay home from work today. He’s losing his voice, so the two of us are an unintentional comedy routine today.

Him: Hey, (mumble mumble mumble mrf)
Me: What? What?
Him: I said (mumble mumble) the baby (mumble mumble mrf)
Me: What? What?
Him: Never mind.

In an effort to regain at least one of my senses, I took a homeopathic sinus pill. I had to melt it under my tongue, which is very unpleasant and made my mouth water like a sprinkler. It also made me really dizzy. Or maybe the congestion made me dizzy. Either way, my head goes SPIN! and I kind of want to lie down, only not, because, hello, congestion? So instead I’m online. Which is like sleep, only with more keystrokes.

In other news, I wrote an essay for the Weblog Tools Collection about my love affair with my blog. You should go voite for it, right now. Go. Do it.

And if you have any words about the new theme, use them in the comments. I will also use words to respond to you. Brilliant!

    Yes and no - I based it on this theme and changed all the images and the colors.

    I’ve been thinking about adding a 2nd level sidebar myself, but I’ve yet to make the jump. They’re real vertical space savers, but one has to be pretty careful of visual clutter.

    Rirath, definitely - on both counts. I like how slim these are, but the other side of that is that the blog feels somewhat claustrophobic now. And it’s not widgetized! I might mess around with some other ideas if I can’t make this work.

    I’m sure you’ll get it how you want it. It’s looking good as is. One thing I really like is the small yet readable font size. I have a thing for micro-fonts, I guess.

    You’ve probably noticed that I changed the whole thing. Heh. I totally agree about the micro-fonts, but I also want it to be easy for people to enlarge the font if they need to, and since that other theme had a fixed layout it wasn’t so good for that. The upside is I really dig it now.
