I. First of all, I want to give a shout-out to my boy, Chag at Cynical Dad, who masterminded the new GGC design. He has helped with all my tech endeavors and I am grateful for his kindness and genius and friendship. The man is high quality. Fist to the chest, duder.
II. Now for the boring stuff... Are any of you having any trouble with the new format? I have a Mac and Chag represents the PC with pride and we have both tested all browsers (Explorer, Firefox, Safari...) and it looks good on our systems BUT I've heard from certain readers (i.e. my parents) that the format is a little funky on their computers. Anyone else having trouble or have my parents just been smoking a little more of the crack than usual? Let me know.
III. If you are at all interested, I'll be posting links to my Straight From the Bottle posts every week in little tiny font at the bottom of my weekend post. This will make it seem less obvious that I am trying to push Babble.com like a street-pimp. If this is perceived as lame/tacky, please don't tell me. I prefer to be lied to. It makes me feel more secure.
Pacify Me: Sometimes a binky and a blankie are all it takes...
Viva Las Life Change: Shotgun weddings. Jesus broaches. Growing up.
Daycare Le Peu: Because you hate when your baby smells like another woman (especially one who wears cheap perfume).
