Today was the writer blog's turn where I talk about what the must wants me to do at 2 am

http://farseeingfairytales.blogspot....w-at-2-am.html

and I'm really proud I finally found a wordpress layout and template that lets me do what i want - I redesigned it and I may be cheating, but here is a link to yesterday's post....all pretty-like now

http://bettieleetwo.wordpress.com/20...nia-the-hours/

It now matches my twitter and blogger blog background.
