A Little Redecorating

Check out my new blog header! Pretty freakin' awesome huh?

I'd like to give my heartfelt thanks to my dear blogging buddy Malicious Intent, the artist responsible for this lovely work. I opened an email over the weekend to discover that MI had been "playing in her coloring book" because, you know, she just doesn't have enough to do to keep her busy (wipe your feet - some of that sarcasm just dripped on'em) and low and behold she created a beautiful banner for my blog. Only it wasn't this one.

Seems I have some kind of weird matter-antimatter, electromagnetic field or something. Maybe it's superpowers that I haven't yet discovered, I don't know. Anyway, the predominant background color in the original was dark blue. After several attempts by me to upload, MI resending, me re-uploading, Blogger seemed to think that the picture should be RED. Go figure. MI solved the problem by designing and creating a completely new banner.

The new one is different from the first but every bit as beautiful and I love it and it uploaded without a hitch. It captures the very essence of that which is my Quixotic Hierophantness. Go forth to pay homage and to lavish worship upon MI (she likes that and it keeps her from getting cranky). I caution you however to not incur her wrath for though art soft and not chainsaw resistant.

Thank you MI!!!

Yay! Way to go Bruce. And way to go MI too! It's a fabulous header and seems very 'you'. I shall go over and pay homage to her soon - can't have her getting cranky ;-)

Finally! Sheesh...well at least this one worked. Goes well with the background too. Did you ever notice to, along with the other freaky things we have in common, we picked the same blogger style?

Anyway, I like it, looks good IMHO.
Most important, glad you like it. Sometimes I just need something to work on that has nothing to do with autism, or just because I have to do it. Doing something simply for the pleasure of doing it is really nice from time to time and even better if someone likes and uses it.

Thanks Kitty. MI can't fool me though. I think she did this as a way to get me to do a blog post. I don't know who she thinks she's dealing with. I would never fall for a trick like...hey...wait a minute...

MI, it looks great. Thanks again. And yes Leia, I did notice the Blogger theme. When are we having cheessteaks?

See, that why I abandoned blogger, good job MI!

Liza said...

Love the header Bruce. MI did a fabulous job!

Bruce, a work in progress said...

Wait a minute Mal, are you saying it's Blogger's fault? It isn't me? MI told me I was possessed.

Hi Liza. She did indeed. She's a talented lady.

De Pope wonders why your banner must be all hellfire, why not a nice image of young men worship the Jesus, yes, yes.

Hey Popey, thanks for text messaging from the middle of your mass in National's Stadium. I do however have a bone to pick with you about you messing up traffic in the Washington area this morning. It took forever to get to work. Next time you do that send me Moses's staff so I can part the traffic in front of me.

OMG, the new banner is awesome! I love it. I've seen the basic picture before, but what MI has done with it...yeah, she's freakin amazing. No wonder she will take over the world. :)

Let me know if you ever decide to change it. You know like bloggerbay or something. Okay, bad joke, I know. But really it's great.

Malicious Intent said...

Bruce you been over to Pre Po's site? She came back with a message explainingh her absense and it's not good. I really wanna crank out my new chain saw right now and I don't think even you would disagree with that.

Our poor poor pre-po. She does not deserve this!

Vicki, I'm glad you like it. I think if I were to change it I'd have to give it back to MI but I'll put in a good word for you.

MI. OH. MY. GOD. I cannot believe she's going through this. Thanks for giving me a heads up. I just mixed up a fresh batch of 2 stroke gas/oil yesterday in case you need more fuel for that saw.

Beautiful! It makes mine look like nothing.

Mike said...

Great job MI and nice present Bruce. Looks really good. It is really funny, but when I click on to anyone's blog that uses this particular template, it takes forever for it to load. Does anyone else have this problem with a template like Bruce's?

Malicious Intent said...

It think it is just blogger + the internet in general. I have the same template and no problems, but on other pages I own, I want to kill.

Watch Fox @ 1 pm today, prerace show. They will mention our walk with a few photos. I think my friends and neighbors made the cut.
My logo/art work for that event will be shown too, I think. lol
