My New “Versatile” Blog-site.


I feel ridiculously pleased with my site’s new look. I should feel guilty about being so excited. I mean I  was pretty pleased with the way it used to look. Sorry ‘old look’ you’ve been replaced.

Like a child with a shiny new toy or a teenager with his first car, I can’t stop looking at it. I am sure that if I could, I’d figure out a way to take it to bed with me. I guess I could put my laptop on the other half of the bed…

Oddly enough, after I had changed my site’s appearance, I couldn’t use it.

I kept opening new posts and writing a title and then I would just set there looking at it. It sort of felt like a bad joke, you know the ones I mean.

“All dressed up and nowhere to go.”

“I can’t take you anywhere.”

“We bought you the best books, sent you to the best schools and whaddya do?”

All these flashed through my mind as I sat staring at the blank screen. Well that and, “Why’d ya change the damn thing if you’re not going to use it?”

did have lots to say. But every time I poised my fingers over the keyboard, every idea I had surged forward and got stuck in a bottle neck of jumbled thoughts.

I mean, here I had been nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award and I can’t get past the titles. Sheesh!

Versatile Blogger Award

I suppose that, just like getting a new car, I was afraid of metaphorically scratching it or denting it. The blogging version of backing into next door’s fence. Either that or I was so excited about the new look I couldn’t think past it.

Either way, I seem to be over that now as I can, at least, type some sort of drivel on the page.

Of course my problem could have nothing at all to do with the ‘new look’ it could just be because it’s bloody Monday.

  1. WHY didn’t you tell me I wrote MikeTalksFilm like three times in my award post even though the link was correct and even though the title had MikesFilmTalk. I was NOT doing that in retaliation for spot #4 on your list! I did it because I was madly tired when I typed it up and I didn’t bother to read it today…until just now. UGH! What an idiot I am. All is corrected. You are back to your old self!

    1. Funny, I thought you had put MFT in four times because of the #four slot. And there I was thinking how witty you were being! Do I have to go back to my ‘old’ self, I kind of liked the ‘new’ one! Like I always say (or at least posted on my blog) never go back and read your old posts, that way lies madness! 🙂

      1. Well, yes, I DID do it four times on purpose. You’ve found me out AGAIN! That’s two aces revealed! And now I’m mad that in my previous post to you I didn’t put a ? at the end of my rhetorical first question. Yes, we’ll stick with the new one and no, I’m not going to re-read this. Oof! Too late.

      1. I wonder what would happen if we completely ignored the bad stereotypes about Mondays and treated it like it was the most awesome day of the week. Do you think things would stay the same? We should try it out

      2. Hmmm. A glass half full approach? It could just work! Count me in. I do hereby declare Mondays to be known as Magnificent Mondays! All I favour say aye. 🙂
