Wordy Wednesday. Because that's how I roll.

I haven't posted today because I've spent the last 24 hours or so trying to dress up my blog.  If you look very closely, you'll looks exactly the same.  Yeah.  Hey I'm not a graphic designer, ok?  And Photoshop was clearly designed by a sadist.  That's all I have to say about that.

There is one new feature:  an all-new About Me page!

My wonderful IT-dude husband* spent some time last night wrestling Blogger to the ground in an epic battle for the right to place a picture on that page without a border around it.  Victory!  I knew I kept him around for something.

Now I'm trying to customize my header a little, add a graphic, a little bling, you know.  For you.  To make your browsing experience more aesthetically pleasing.  I wouldn't hold my breath, though, if I were you.  Seriously.  That's dangerous, and it's not going to get you what you want.  I do not respond to emotional manipulation.

I have no transition for this so I'm just going to say it.  Last week somebody googled "harry potter overanalyzation" and Google sent them straight here!  How amazing is that?  I mean, that is one incredibly specific search.  And here I was, ready to meet needs.  You're welcome, random googler!

In other news:  Google Analytics is a very dangerous tool in the hands of somebody even slightly obsessive.  So if you know anybody like that, keep them away from it, ok?

Question: is Google always capitalized?  I mean, if I use it as a proper noun, as in "I used Google to find these 4,700 John Stamos photos for the shrine in my closet" (as a totally random, entirely fictional example, you guys), I obviously capitalize it.  But what about when it's a verb?  Do I Google myself, or do I google myself?

Answer:  I never Google myself or google myself.  That would be really self-absorbed of me.  I am a self-actualized individual far above such trivial matters as who is saying what about me on the Internet, ok?  I have faith in my flawless and upright behavior that my web presence reflects only a spotless reputation.  Just as a matter of interest, though, if I did G/google myself, Google would return 1,070 results, and approximately 1,065 of them would be directly related to my Pinterest addiction.  Fun fact!

*See, guys? I told you he had redeeming qualities.
