This post precedes the Great Decay of Modern Society (aka miley cyrus) only because i was thinking about some life changing changes.
So. . . . . . . a while ago, i got a complaint that reading white print on a black background was hurting the eyes of a person who shall not be named. Voldemort [gasp]. And by voldemort [gasp], i mean a courtney person. . . i think it was her. Maybe it was a brent person. Anyway, i reprimanded said person and told them to grow a pair of better eyes, then promptly forgot about it. That is until i was reading my own posts, laughing (yes, i do that. It makes me feel better), and could have sworn the text was moving around the page. it hurt my eyes.
So, the question i pose, if i changed the background to a white, with black text, would it lessen the negativity of the blog? I chose black because it's foreboding and a foreboding header because it's foreboding and because it was the most negative thing i could conjure up, but as i've aged, i feel like i can now be just as negative with a non-negative appearing blog. I'm not sure. I have thought about this for a while and changing it up would be a big change (obviously) and i'm just not sure i can do it. It's like, i need a haircut, but for some reason, i can't get one.
I'm thinking that maybe by changing it to white with black text, and changing up the header, it would make it more of an ironic juxtaposition. Like if i had a picture of unicorn as the header. . . . .Hmmmm. Tempting. Anyway, i'd like to hear some thoughts. I mean, it bothers me, but not enough to really make a change, sort of like one time, my hair bothered me, but i didn't cut it until it would always get in my mouth when i brushed my teeth. If it stops people from reading my opinion on everything, then i'd definitely be willing to make a compromise. Or, i'd just say eff you. One or the other.
I would legitimately like some input on this. Or not. I don't care. But maybe i kind of do, but not really.
