Caught Up Again

In addition to feverishly working out with college students half my age in a dilapidated but charming campus gym, I've decided to try the Wally Szczerbiak Diet. Smaller logs on a continuous fire. Sounds like good advice to me. As long as it doesn't give me way-oversized eyebrows. Wait, I already have oversized eyebrows.

By popular demand, I've changed my blog name back to its original meaningless Steely Dan-influenced name, thus no longer invoking images of children's birthday parties. In a clever twist, I've entirely removed the color "blueprint blue" from my blog. I'm in the process of freshening up my links.

The original name was Frontispiece. I know this is LA, but what's with the constant reinvention? Why don't you just call the blog Xtina and be done with it? Or Thin White Blog? Or how about "I'm Not A Blog, Not Yet A Woman"?

Oh, and not to quibble, but the text on the side is blue. Although, that is quibbling, and I apologize.

To answer your question, "what's with the constant reinvention?" I say, "Dude, it's only a blog. It's free, like the weather. Would you say to the weather 'Weather, why do you change every day?'?"

I love it! You're great! It's great. Although I don't remember "A Lion In My Own Garden."
