The revamp is now complete. I added a graphic around the Nublog title to help distinguish between entries and such. I stuck to the classic Matrix theme, though the color scheme was definitely darker this time around, which is good news for Randy. I was partly inspired by the crispness of xxallenemiesxx's site, but as the template progressed I started making it more of my own. So ta-dah, tell me what you think.
The sister is back from Satanville, a.k.a. dance camp. I can only imagine what she must have been like at camp. She is particularly fond of adopting cutesy alter egos to blend better into her social groups. Her return has brought many great things to this household; the bathroom has transformed into the usual slobfest and my mother's stress levels have risen.
Jump rope has been occupying more of my summer than I'd anticipated. Not that I really had much else to occupy it with, but you get the idea. Today was a nice break in the cycle though; instead of driving 45 minutes up to Kirkland the practice came to me. I spent most of the morning teaching a teamate in my Worlds group whose been having a hard time grasping our 4 person routine. It's sad that nobody else even noticed or cared enough to help, and we're supposed to be teammates? I liked it on my old team, where drama was extinct and people were real to each others faces.
I found out that trials are in January...which means we only have about 4 and a half months to prepare 5 routines and get all of our speed scores up to par. And they're going to be held in Ohio...how random? Yay, more hot weather.
I'm sure everyone has these kinds of friends. Ones where you feel more obligated to be there friend than anything else? I have a particularly bad case...he's called me no less than 35 times in the past two weeks, and ever single time I've ignored it. This hasn't discouraged him in the least bit, as he just called me again...you'd think my subliminal messaging would've gotten through to him by now, but apparently my ignoring him has yet to speak for itself. I'm taking a little risk here since he knows about my Nutang...but perhaps discovering this will ease in the fact that I don't want to talk to you everyday.
Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
Ah yes, alter egos. Very useful things, those. :P

I made it, not Steve.
the "created by steve" thing is to remove the links on the bottom. See? On your site [& everyone elses], theres these whole buncha links. On mine, theres none & thats what its for.

Thanks btw =)

I'm not sure what the site looked like before, but it really looks slick now. I've been trying to figure out for a while how to make CSS text image replacements like your headings. How did you do it?
Thank you for commenting by my blog btw.

(wow, it's been a long time since I've actually said THAT... o_O)
I love the new color scheme. Especially the background and the nublog title image. =D
I still haven't decided on a new color scheme for mine yet. Eh...

I like it...and all the new graphics you added. ^-^ About that friend...I know the feeling. *sigh* And it's hard cuz you don't wanna hurt the kid's feelings, but...GO AWAY! Not you, of course. XD

Looks really good. I like it!!

I really like the new layout.
I'm thinking that since that person doesn't seem to be getting the hint by you ignoring him, maybe you should just tell him to his face that you don't want to talk. It might hurt him, but if there's no other way ...

Thanks for your comment. :) I had a lot of fun the only problem was that I had to be the DD so no drinking for me. :( Oh well I can live without a glass of wine.

Ouch. Maybe you should get that friend of yours a girlfriend or something so he can occupy his time some other way.
Or, you could beat him up.
