i tried. i failed.

I tried, in vain, for hours to outfit my blog with a snazzy new layout. After all of the blood, sweat and tears (ok, not really), I am left with what I started with. My very rudimentary HTML skills could only bring me so far. And now all I have to show for that hard work is how pissed off I am. Anyway..

I'd like to think that I'm fairly intelligent. However, when ridiculous statements come out of my mouth, I sometimes question myself a bit. One particular story comes to mind. I was driving, chitchatting with Liz who was sitting in the front seat. I spotted a car with an Alaska license plate and this is the conversation that followed:

Me: Wow, it must be really expensive to get your car here from Alaska.
Liz: You mean because of all that gas you'd use?
Me: Oh you know, because you have to get it on the boat
Liz: Boat? Why a boat?
Me: Because Alaska's an island, right...?

Apparently I had been under the assumption that Alaska was an island. Until the age of 20. What can I say? Geography was never my thing. But I maintain that the maps make it seem as though Alaska is in fact an island.

You're a doll! I'm not entirely positive about what I want, but I think i'd like a paisley background. I was able to put that code in but I didn't know how to make a opaque box for the text to be in so it didn't blend into the background. Also, i'd love a simpler header. something relating to "kissing frogs" but not as much going on. Maybe having "kissing frogs." in a simple cursive-ish writing?

Aw, Jessie, don't feel bad. A good friend of mine, until she was also 20, thought there were 52 states. (Her reasoning? Well, there are 52 cards in a deck. Uh what..)
