So Iâ€™ve decided Iâ€™m sticking with the crappy BlogTastic beta, I think. Why? Well, I could go on about how it was fate that I picked this one, or about how the universe has directed me to a comment-free bugged beta bloghost for a cosmically salient reason – but the truth is, Iâ€™m too lazy to learn a new interface, plus I like the grass. So BlogTastic it is, my friends. Oops, I mean my imaginary readers. Because, see, with no comments function, I actually have very little clue as to how many of you there might be. Alas. I might have an e-ARMY! Hey if I ever decide to mobilize for a just cause, will yâ€™all join me? Iâ€™ll keep you posted. Anyway, itâ€™s probably better off that I canâ€™t get comments, because then Iâ€™d just be sad when no one actually wrote any comments – whereas now, I can imagine that thereâ€™s this mass of readers who are just DYING to tell me all about how great/funny/annoying/witty/embarrassing/boring/other I am, but they canâ€™t, for lack of a functional â€œcommentsâ€ section. See how easy that is?
On a completely unrelated subject, Iâ€™m reading The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell, and it made me start thinking — why is it that some trends stick in fashion, and not others? And don’t go telling me that some are cute and some not so much — because, can I just say, there are some ugly-ass trends out there these days. I’m not going to list them all, because, if nothing else, I’d probably offend some of my friends who read this, but I have to just complain about one trend here: capri pants with boots. NOT OKAY. Never gonna be okay. Boots are for cold weather, capris are for warm weather. Mixing them is like mixing, I dunno, piÃ±a coladas and apple cider, or chopped liver and maraschino cherries, or oil and water, or Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher. OK, I’m done for now.
