and i kinda want to throw something through a wall! clint & i both agree that somehow the guys @ blogger conspire with all the tech-y people & make you THINK you can diy all these things with your blog - oh, it's soooo simple, just follow these steps... 2 hours later, you're throwing things & thinking, "FINE! i'll pay those crazy prices for some tech-y person to design my blog!!!".
ps: to any tech-y person that may be reading - i know doing websites take lots of time & your prices are probably fair & reflect your time + skills. i'm just majorly ANNOYED :)
pps: though it's not @ all what i was going for, i do like this new pattern & i guess it goes with all the food i've been cooking (& consuming) these days, so i'm making peace with it for now.
