Ahead of the game

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

I'm going to push myself ahead a bit of the whole Best of 2009 Blog Challenge since tomorrow's challenge will be quite easy for me to do, and I know the closer I get to Christmas day the less time I'll actually have. Hopefully this is within the "rules" -- but we've already seen that I don't quite adhere to them anyway.

Day 15: Best Packaging
This doesn't actually exist (I don't think), but I definitely believe it should.

Smoking is perhaps one of my biggest pet-peeves and my biggest turn-off. I have legitimately turned down men and dates on the basis that they smoke, no matter how intelligent or good looking or appealing he is. I just can't stand it. There is no point to smoking; all it does is lead to terrible smelling fingers and breath, addiction, and an early death. Honestly, if you're stressed, go to the gym or something. No one finds your smoker's cough attractive.

Day 16: Tea of the Year
Easy: I have none. I don't drink tea. How is this possible, you ask? I just don't. Every tea I have tried (and believe me, that is many; I was born in England, after all) I do not like. Green tea? Food-coloured water with an aftertaste. Chai tea? Weird spiced water. Milk tea? Dairy water. Earl Grey? Dirty water. Blackberry tea? Weird tasting liquid with a hint of dark, somehow. I just...can't. Ick. It goes along with the fact that I am the pickiest eater in the world. Sorry, tea-lovers. Please don't hate me. I'm open to suggestions.

Also - for those that see my blog rather than just through Google Reader - you may notice the change in layout (again). I'm still tweaking trying to find the best colour combinations and how I want to set it. I also became annoyed with how wide my page was, so I reverted back to a minimal column width. I'm hoping this also helps me keep pictures smaller, since larger ones are obnoxious and distracting.

If it existed, it would be a wonderfully snide packaging!

And you know you can adjust the size of your photos, right? That why if you click the ones I didn't pilfer off Google they turn out massive. And I spent a good half hour looking at blogger templates until I found the right one. Gosh.

About Me

My photo
I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
