Central Snark

May I interrupt? Another quick template discussion if you please. by Snuppy

Hi, its Laura, sneaking into the Hot Puppy suit.  πŸ™‚

I guess my Template OCD problem is rising its head again.  I find this picture too eerie (like fog in trees) and would like to get a more green, park like photo for our header photo.  If any one has a picture they'd like to put up there, please send it to me at Kyahgirl2003@yahoo.ca

I'll upload some candidates next week and you guys can choose.

 The only limitation is that this version of wordpres.com doesn't give us much flexibility so the picture has to be 730 pixels wide by 140 pixels high. If it can be cropped or sized to that without distorting it, great! 

As a reward for turning some of your brain energy to this difficult task, I'm going to give you a laugh.

 My friend Jill has been battling cancer for several years.  She is one of the most positive, optimist people I know and she shared this cute saying with me yesterday at work. I hope you like it:

I'd like to be a Glow worm, a glow worm's never glum.

For how can you be grumpy when the sun shines out your bum?

Well, how about a picture of some animals hanging around a cafe? Or maybe someone could write an offical poem, or theme song.

Comment by Gone to the Dogs ate my Bunny

hiya girlfriend! i am so HAPPY to see you!!! and may i say, my dear, you wear this “suit” looks fabulous on youl!

i’m all for a different picture… tho’, i will say i’m not creeped out by this one… i actually find it kind of peaceful. but this isn’t supposed to be a peaceful place, is it? no… it’s supposed to be playful! and Snarky! so let’s find something playful and/or Snarky! or, at least green! can’t wait to see what the choices are! xoxox πŸ˜€

Hi sophie, nice to see you too πŸ™‚

I’m glad you open to trying something different. This one isn’t really bad, I just like a sunier feeling. Comes of living in the land of the really, really big sky!

Comment by kyahgirl

Hi all! I’ve romped elsewhere, now I’m back to the park. Have we changed lines, or topic?

Comment by I'm Feline Frisky

Oh sorry Brian, I didn’t answer your comment. would you like to volunteer to strike up a comittee to write an official theme song or poem? You’re such a poet you could probably whip one off in no time so I’d like to give you the extra challenge of adding snippets from the other lazy so and so’s hanging around here πŸ™‚
Just a thought!
And I like the idea of animals at a cafe. Miz B says she’s pretty good with photos and stuff so I’ll ask her if she wants to try her hand at it.

Hi FF πŸ™‚ You can still comment on the other topic too, I just wanted to get a template side conversation going πŸ™‚

Comment by kyahgirl

The perfect image would be of a dog and his relationship with a fire hydrant.

Ok, maybe some people won’t see the humor in that. But I think it is perfect. πŸ˜‰

Comment by Ride'Em Cowgirl

Ride’Em Cowgirl: i like that! tho’ i think there should also be a group of dogs (and/or other animals) standing around critiquing his performance!

Kyahgirl: change is good. we do not fear change. as Emerson said, “a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.” considering that golden slide rule, not to mention the various times you’ve been awarded the beanie and/or pocket protector, i think it’s fair to say yours is anything *but* a small mind (which explains your need to change!) … you know, this was supposed to be deep and funny. after reading back through it, however, i think i’ve failed tragically on both fronts! sigh. anyway. change? good. new pictures?? gooood. πŸ™‚

Comment by snuppytoes

(((sophie))) I like the intent, πŸ™‚ I get you.

You do know that ((( )))) around a person’s name indicates a hug, right?

cowgirl-you are too funny. I like it. It would have to be tasteful though. We’re relaxied but still gracious and refined her, right? πŸ™‚

Comment by kyahgirl

gasp…I did not see this. *squeezes eyes tightly shut*

No. No procrastinating allowed to find pictures. No, no, no.

Deadlines, Jenna…Deadlines.

*covers eyes, slowly backs out of this comment section*

Comment by Little Blue Pill

sophie, could I just bother you to check your mail box please ?? πŸ™‚

Jenna, get outta here. We love you but I, for one, do not want to see you with whip marks. πŸ™‚

Comment by kyahgirl

checked it and sent a reply, girlfriend! πŸ˜€

Jenna! get back to work so we can all revel in your success!!! (those of us who are living vicariously through you, that is!!) πŸ˜€

Comment by snuppytoes

oooh, kyahgirl, make that (((girlfriend))) πŸ™‚

Comment by snuppytoes

Hey everyone – how’s it going? Just back from the first of Julian’s graduations. It was beautfiul, adorbale, incredible. The kids were so excited and performed so nicely – it’s quite a crew to whip into shape and they did beautifully.

Template: the picture is nice, but now that you mention, slightly Blair Witch Projectish. I have a headache, did not drink enough water today.

Going to watch a video with my graduate.

Talk to you all late – did I mean, late, latte, later – my head is dead.

Comment by lady of the lampshade

Hi g. glad to hear its going well with the little star. I loved your post about him

Comment by kyahgirl

Lady Lampshade: are you gonna watch an actual video? or the graduation video? (see your little cutie pie make out with Tianna, again…) glad everything went so well… happyhappy you’re back… LOVED your post!! πŸ˜€

Comment by snuppytoes

Ok, my first draft.

Dogs that bark,
an Amoeba that groans,
a horse hit the mark,
a bunny hops home,
felines chase lark,
and a little blue pill,
come here to snark,
and give us a thrill.
lamp shines bright,
into the dark,
for some a late night,
here in the park.

Y’all have a great night. Sestina Friday tomorrow.

kyahgirl: pick up the phone! πŸ™‚

Comment by snuppytoes

I wrote this for Cowgirl’s newest post today.

β€œJust A Horse”

Four hooves that prance,
beautiful eyes that dance,
soft nicker in greeting,
anticipation in meeting,
skin warm to the touch,
my friends I love much,
to saddle up and ride,
sheer joy I can’t hide,
warm wind blows my hair,
creates feeling so rare,
strong bond between two,
something I always knew,
you may say but of course,
he’s more than just a horse.

There is no time when I am happier than when writing poems for others.

Comment by Gone to the Dogs ate my Bunny

Forgive my super short comment! I have been reading up off and on but alas, no time to really say a full hello! And here we are, past midnight and it has been crazy so I am off to bed! Just popping in to send you many kisses and Kyahgirl, thank you for your sweet, sweet email! I will write back as soon as I humanly can (and to your question… YES!!!!!)… Hi Neva! I miss you too! so big besos to y’all and I hope, OH SO MUCH, to join back in to the thick of things tomorrow!

So, ya’ll actually like my picture idea? Coolness. People who appreciate my weirdness.

Comment by Ride'Em Cowgirl

You’re living vicariously…

through ME?!?!

Man…that’s a lot of pressure.

Comment by Little Blue Pill

Yay I wanna see what you come up with cowgirl! πŸ™‚

Comment by cj / romance enhancer

on the subject of a poem or song for the blog….sophie and casper discussed it, (you know *woof, woof*?
*arf, arf*? )
and decided to just stick with modifying the header picture and shortening up the ‘snark’ description.

Comment by kyahgirl

This weekend I am going to take my Aussie and see if I can snap a tasteful picture…we’ll have to see.

Thanks for everyone’s comments on my post/quasi-rant today.

The audacity of some people. *throws hands in the air* I more than officially hate stupid people.

Comment by Ride'Em Cowgirl

We actually watched a video and then after our pizza party, the family watched the makeout video. Julian loves kissing.
