Winter is Coming

The tricky thing about this blog post title is that you can’t tell if I’m being literal, as in, it’s November, and obviously, winter is coming, or if I’m alluding to Game of Thrones. I’ll never tell.

Anyway, what do you think of this new header design? I’m really conflicted about it for a number of reasons:

1) Alignment. You see how I tab over on the list of what this blog is about? Well, you have to be really careful about creating different vertical alignments, because it could look disorganized. For the most part, you want text to line up on the page in their appropriate visual columns. What I’m doing here is bold and potentially stylistically devastating. Or it’s okay. I think it’s okay.

2) Font. You see how I use one font for the header, the text, and then a different font for the text in the bubbles? Well, you have to be really careful about using different fonts, because it could look like you don’t know how to highlight things and select the same font for them. For the most part, I do not know how to do this. What I’m doing here is not deliberate and potentially stylistically devastating. Or it’s okay. I think it’s okay.

3) Comic. You see how I combine stick figure drawings and a predisposition to megalomaniacal thoughts? Well, you have to be really careful about suggesting you have G-d-like abilities, because it could look like you are crazy. For the most part, this is a blog, so people should not judge. What I’m doing here is dry and thought-provoking. Or it’s brilliant. I think it’s brilliant.

Week 8

It’s no secret that David and I love a good meal. And while we can navigate a restaurant menu with the dexterity of a seasoned pilot, our skills in the kitchen are a different story. Thus, every evening we struggle with the same dilemma:

Me: David I’m home!
David: Hello!
Me: I’m so hungry.
David: No, I am hungry!
Me: I haven’t eaten all day.
David: I ate a banana.
Me: What are we going to eat?
David: ….

And thus our nightly adventures begin. We spend the following hour debating different restaurants and weighing the merits of going to the grocery store. This exercise is actually very useful because during this hour, time passes, as it is wont to do, and restaurants and grocery stores close, thereby eliminating themselves as options.

Long post short: I’ve managed to lose a few pounds.
