Change is good?

Any of you who were viewing my Blog tonight, will have probably noticed that the style has changed a few times. That's because I was trying to change the template. I do like the look of the current template, but I've been considering switching the background to gray so that he photos will be easier to view. The bright white background tends to make the b&w photos appear more contrasty than they are meant to be.

So I tried a few different templates out, and did some tweaking to them, but I just couldn't find anything that really impressed me. Blogger has a few nice templates, but there aren't enough styles to choose from I think. I've considered switching to something like Movable Type, an excellent publishing tool for blogs, but I would have to pay for a hosting service, and it's difficult to get it set up.

So yeah, after battling with CSS code all evening, without much success, I've decided to switch back to the original. Maybe I'll do some tweaking and make some changes to it.

Sorry, whew!!Crazy flight in. So this is a very nice site, huh? Pretty girl in the picture, she must go out with one of the Yankees. Richard, were you watching spanktravision??

West Side Locust said...

Yeah, I was checkin' back with the sentenced site when this Canadian guy pops his head in. I thought cool, looks like it won't be famine for us after all. Everything is (crunch, crunch, crunch) plentiful in the Great White North. I'll say one thing though, it's freakin freezin up here. So I thought I'd pull up next to a warm blog, sip on some General Foods International Cafe French Vanilla Coffee and eat like a freakin' pig.

West Side Locust said...

Yeah Lil C you gotta stay out of that Jet Stream. You go a lot faster but it's a real pain gettin out of it.

West Side Locust said...

I have the General Foods International Coffee. I realize it's not Starbucks but it was all I could carry. Did anyone bring the brandy?

West Side Locust said...

West Side Locust and Dirty South Locust were desperate for work, and a family friend offered West Side Locust work for him. Dirty South Locust did not find out for a while what exactly West Side Locust was doing for a living, but he would bring Dirty South Locust presents home, always avoiding telling her where they had come from. But you don't argue with a diamond bracelet...or at least Dirty South Locust didn't.West Side Locust and Dirty South Locust were desperate for work, and a family friend offered West Side Locust work for him.

West Side Locust said...

Hell, I didn't even spill my coffee (crunch, crunch, dip, crunch, gulp).

Lil C and the East Side Locusts said...

Hey West, did you happen to be filming a Monistat commercial while you were drinking your International Foods Freanch Vanilla girl caffe? Ha ha! I noticed how you tried to plug Rock Bottom Java, and I brought some Brandy, but I drank it all on the way here, thats why I got lost.OOOPs. Brandy, yer a fine girl....I think anonymous is the locanator, or the exterminator, who ever...Hes so clever....

Lil C and the East Side Locusts said...

DELETED!!!!!

West Side Locust said...

It wasn't a monistat commercial. It was one of those times when I wasn't feeling.... you know....fresh. After I was fresh again, I sat next to the fire in my wing back chair with my feet curled up, wrapped in my favorite Precious Moments throw blanket and sipped my General Foods International French Vanilla Coffee while thinking dreamy, happy thoughts. Then someone bitch-slapped me and I came back to reality. Whoever that was, thanks.

I think anonymous is just a poser. Although I do have to give him his props, he's a little more threatening and imaginative than the Exterminator ever was. The exterminator was chasing us down for about 1 field. He was a flash in the pan. This guy tried to set a trap. I even told DSL that I thought he wanted it too badly. Guess next time I should go with my gut but everything looked so fresh and tasty over here. I couldn't resist. He managed to take a few of us out but fortunately he was one blog post over. So we had to go underground. You got any more ammo clips. I unloaded quite a few bustin' some caps in his a$$.

That's okay about the brandy. I'd hate to think what might have happened if we'd all been high on Rock Bottom Java when the Canucks struck.

In shaving the fire-hair they ( the The Locusts of Bloggsville )must make an offering for the spirit of the place according to custom. The hair that is shaved of is placed in a banana-leaf container with a Caladium or lotus (Locust Lotus same thing!) leaf laid in the bottom; sometimes flowers ( sometimes nails) are mixed in. In cases where things are done well, the whole is placed in turn on a stand. Then it is taken and floated on low used gum, or is taken away (by crows) and thrown whichever is convenient. The Locust who takes it and floats it must say, "We ask for a life of Koolness and happiness like the sacred Robert Persig," or something else (" I love cage fighting" ) of this sort. In the Grhyasutra text of India it is prescribed that the hair that is cut or shaved is to be hidden is a cowshed or in a pool or in a place near water or a gas station (shell). Floating the hair on the water is probably derived from this last Indian custom ( becoming ones own dentist ) ; it was probably inconvenient for people to put the hair in a cowshed as in the first custom.

Dirty South Locust said...

I knew this guy was setting us up! Damn! DAMN!! Oh well, it was (CRUNCH) tasty while it lasted, but I'm spun. How 'bout a change of scenery??

bingo and betty said...

baby!

West Side Locust said...

Don't let the threat of death deter you. He thinks he's caught us but (crunch, munch, munch, munch) I don't see any pink or green locusts in that picture. Besides, I'm still packin' if he gets too close.

Dirty South Locust said...

I totally forgot that I'm a pink locust! Must be all the binging and purging that's making me so pale...(CRUNCH MUNCH...HICCUP!) I am stuffed...OH wait...Never mind!

West Side Locust said...

Ohhhhhhhh! That'll take a while to clean. Nice shot! HaHaHaHa.

Lil C and the East Side Locusts said...

And I leaned over the balcony and I made a sound like this, Whooagghhh! ..Whoooagghh. Hey you guys!
Baby Ruth?
Fity dolla bill!

West Side Locust said...

You got me on that reference Lil C.

Dirty South Locust said...

We could be outside catchin' some waves, jammin' to tunes but Noooooooooo! One older brother had to go and screw it up! That would be "The Goonies" for $1000, bitches.

Lil C and the East Side Locusts said...

Tell her what shes won, Merv!!! Why, its an autographed picture of Corey Haim and Jonathan Brandis!! YAAAAAAAAY!!

West Side Locust said...

I'm sorry but that wasn't in the form of a question. Besides, you'd only get the $1000 if you answered the "Cowboy" question correctly.

Dirty South Locust said...

Westie, I will take my thousand dollars and your momma's thousand dollars too. Screw you, Trebek! Screw you and your "answer in the form of a question"!!
