And if you all jumped off a cliff...

Yes. Yes, I would.

I am no HTMLer, so this is another blogger template. I know the stepped text on the masthead looks crappy, but I can't make it fit and I give up.

That photograph is actually the "view" off our back balcony, if you want to call a spiral stairway to the hell that is the recycling bins a balcony. We do, and we used to spend a lot of time waving from it back around Easter when the pope was in the news. What's a San Francisco apartment without a view?

The photo is the very first one my huz took after we were the last people ever to get a digital camera.

I don't know why the bicycle is on the pole. I don't even know why the pole is there, there are no obvious power lines. I do know that the ladder wasn't there because they were planning to do any paint touch-ups, though.

I apologize if the blog's aura is now a little depressing. If you find it so, I recommend doing what I do: remind yourself that the $800,000 loft across the alley has the same shitty view. Hahahaha! Suckahs!

Nice redesign. I like the new masthead pic--very SoVan.

It's totally postmodern! Totally deconstructionist!

I have no idea what those terms mean, but I really like the weird bicycle. Now Photoshop your adorable little DeBarge on top of it. That will be really trippy.

love that the background is now white.

how did you add that picture? it looks great. I spent three hours trying to figure out how to add a jpeg to ours that would come up as hypertext and gave up.

Love the new look.

Thx all.

Dutch, I don't know exactly what "hypertext" means, googled it and still don't understand.

But I made the masthead as a .gif in photoshop, uploaded it to flickr, and pasted the flickr-generated URL into the header of the template.

looks great. i'd rather have peeling paint than built-in swimming pools, any day.
i would rate it as 'very fancy'.
