free fringes is dead, long live free fringes
Well, enough waiting for freefringes.com to be brought miraculously back to life. This is it, people. The purple patch. My new blogging home.
Don’t get used to this template. It’s avant garde and fucking hard to read. But I do like that it treats my family photos and my friend Flood’s photo collection like we’re hanging in the Louvre. Each page (not post) even gets its own background image and that is badass. I’ll add more pages as I go along. For now, you get the about me page I last updated in the Cretaceous period and my music collection.
I wanna keep the theme, but I’ll need Q to take a break from bettering our lives so he can figure out how to change the background color. As I type, he’s sleeping after packing all day, then he’ll hit the road in the early in the morning for his move to the Washington, D.C., area. I would have killed a few puppies to have made the trip with him, but we love puppies, so I’ll have to wait until next month for a visit. This new job came almost out of the blue at a friend’s recommendation, and, wow, that company moved fast. One day, it was a possibility. The next day, he had an offer letter. Background check, apartment leasing office check, and the next thing I knew, I was on the phone with the cable installer selecting Q’s channel lineup.
Some of you know our history and, of those who know, most are aware Q and I haven’t lived together in three years. So, yeah, this is a bummer that he’s leaving Texas for the east coast, but it’s not like we had a shock-to-the-system, whatever-am-I-going-to-do-without-you going away party. That did happen the first time around and let me tell you: lefty loosey, righty tighty has saved my fixin’ stuff bacon many a day. Anyway, this time around, we spent our last weekend together fixing my dad’s computer and each avoiding getting kicked in the neck as baby Ehren slept between us. No one had time to cry.
So tonight my biggest issue is getting my tagline rotator to work with this theme. The plugin developer is a very nice guy, and life has moved on for him. I’m not sure if he’s available to address my compatibility issues. My second biggest issue will be to choose a featured image for this post. I’ve gotten so used to grabbing what I need from Flood’s Flickr page for my posts over at yeah write, but I’m thinking since this is my personal blog, I should use my own. Did I tell you I broke my DSLR? Talk about a shock-to-the-system, whatever-am-I-going-to-do-without-you going away party. I think Q cried himself to sleep.
I’ll figure something out.
