...in it's own way.
It's taking a lot of self-restraint,
but I'm resisting the urge to post a Youtube video of
Ray Stevens' old song by that name.
You can do it.
I got past it.
That was close.
Now I'm gonna get to the real reason for this post:
Did you see me reflected in
all my glory my red fleece bathrobe in the new header?
You have to scroll way to the right.
Yikes! Installing that new header has given me a headache!
It is not beautiful.
Maybe today I'll figure out how to make it smaller

So, even though I had the most fun I've ever had blogging

So much for my self-restraint.
