3… 2… 1… LAUNCH!!

If you are reading this, it means you have successfully followed the intricate trail of clues I have left for you. You have traversed the labyrinth, stolen the golden chalice, and released the blind falcon. Or perhaps you clicked on that link back on Blogger. Either way, I say good show, old chap.
So… welcome to my new home! In keeping with this weekend’s Oscar theme, I need to rattle off a list of important people who came together to make this happen:
Where do I begin? Well, first of all, enormous thanks go to Kris Dresen for coming up with an amazing design concept, and making my dream of being a comic super hero finally come true. The girl has mad skillz, y’all, and she’s not afraid to use them, particularly when bribed with single malt scotch. And another big thanks to Haemi over at Web Divas for taking that design and giving it life. She’s like the Dr. Frankenstein of the blogosphere. It’s alive! Plus, neither rain, nor sleet, nor California mudslides could stop her from coding. Word.
Next, I’d like to thank my parents for giving birth to me, although if they had held off for a few years, I’d be younger now. But they were selfish, selfish people.
Uhh… who else? Who else? Oh – my agent for believing in me when no one else did. My trainer for helping me pack on 20 pounds of muscle for the role, which will soon turn to 30 pounds of fat. Howard Hughes, for being crazy. My friends, for letting me write down every conversation we have and change all the parts that make me look bad.
Wait! Don’t start the music yet! I’m not done!
And finally, I want to thank the folks who so kindly stop here for a visit every now and then, leave funny and interesting comments, and make this crazy blog worth blogging. Thanks for dropping by – I hope you come back soon! Artichoke dip is in the dining room!

    In the Oscar spirit, as if I were obnoxious hanger-on Joan-or-interchangable-daughter-Rivers, I’d like to thank Jen for moving her page and gush about the fabulousness of her work, then wait ’til she walks away and say something snarky because I’m such a small person.
    Or, I could just be boring like Star Jones-Marriedname.

  5. Dave Says:

    The new place looks fantastic! Almost as fantastic as you! (yeah, I’m a suck-up)
    Did you see page 21 of the Sun-Times today?
    Headline: “Falling in love on the CTA”
    Subhead: “Fleeting encounters on the L – sometimes they even work out”
    There’s hope for you and orangehat yet!

    Hey – thanks everyone! I’m glad you like it. And the bathroom is two doors past the artichoke dip.

    Man, looks sharp! My new digs are (so far) shaping up to be nothing anywhere this cool…really just a small step above my blogger home. But I really just need to get my content over and worry about jazzing up the rest later…
    Nice job, Jenny.!

    Yippee! I dig it…gorgeous picture of you, too!
    By the way, I swear I didn’t look at this post before I wrote my most recent. You can’t prove it, at least.

    More thanks everyone – I’m so glad you all found your way over here! And a word of warning: I have found that I really like messing with Dreamweaver and Movable Type, so there could be some scary things happening here. A little knowledge in the wrong hands? Could be dangerous. So if I accidentally hack into the CIA website, please post bail, won’t you?

    The new site looks great…colors, format, etc. I love the cartoon character interpretation!
