GIP: new layout, old backgrounds

As the result of the many helpful hints and, in some cases, hands-on approach of my flist I received yesterday, my LJ now sports a brand spanking new and, dare I say it, utterly magnificent look, and I extend a heartfelt thankyou to everyone who's generously given of their time and expertise -- give yourselves a round of applause!

I feel it appropriate though to, for the moment, turn the attention to the backgrounds that have gone before, that after their spot in the limelight today will return to the anonymity of a space on my hard drive (which reminds me, perhaps I should burn them to cd sometime) - all are by bogwitch, btw.

First off, there was Drowning in Footwear, a gentle tease made up of my love of shoes and an appreciation for a certain blond vampire:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

which after some time was replaced by the more blatant tease of Naked!Spike:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

and finally, by the Common Rotation background that I'm retiring now:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I am so lucky in my flist!

In other news, I'm glad I decided not to fly out to the UK this weekend after all (even though it would have been fun to meet up again with some of you to go and see Beneva in concert) -- I don't believe the disruption at Heathrow and other airports will ease off soon. Though it had better be over with by the time the CoRo tour kicks off.

For now though, I'm off to the museum, in the pouring rain.

MWNN is flying to Dublin on Monday. He's not concerned, but I believe you're right in your caution.

The layout? It is looking rather nifty.

I just got an e-mail from Fly.be, to say that
"in light of today’s increased security alert across UK airports, if you are travelling today we ask for your patience while we try and get you to your destination. There are likely to be delays but we would ask that you please still check-in as normal.

Flybe, with immediate effect, will not charge passengers for hold baggage at airports, and will continue with this policy whilst Flybe deem the security risk to be heightened.

For those of you that may be travelling today, you can change the date of travel to another date within the next 14 days, subject to availability, at no charge. Online check-in is still available through flybe.com and is available within 24 hours of your departure." Very decent of them, I must say. Anyway, I hope MWNN will have an uneventful journey, without too many delays or upsets, on Monday.

I'm very pleased with the new layout. Are you through fiddling with the background now? Those swirls of colour are so pretty now.

Very Spiffy
Aug. 10th, 2006 03:03 pm (UTC)
Judging by today's reactions, I'm beginning to think it has universal appeal. ;-)

absobloominlutely lovely!!! congratulations on your spiffing new home!!

We didn't mention maybe.. because knew you weren't coming already .. but the concert was cancelled - as the venue closed down! So doubly good job you are not flying. It had definitely better be all clear by October - there's a lot of people needing a lot of flights to make it all work. Not least one from LA - ;)!!

enjoy the museum - perfect rainy day haunt x

the concert was cancelled

Cancelled? What will yous do for fun day after tomorrow, then? ;-)

Went to the Escher museum with Mum, a long-standing arrangement. Was good, enjoyable; though I got soaked on the way over...and on the way back again!

I really like the simplicity, the sleekness, of this, but the fact that the buttons are on top is a bit annoying, IMO.

I grant you it takes a bit of getting used to; I keep looking for them in the wrong place myself, but I expect I'll soon get the hang of it. ;-)
Aug. 10th, 2006 05:44 pm (UTC)
It's all shiny and sparkly!
Aug. 10th, 2006 06:21 pm (UTC)
It's the best I could do given that I'm totally clueless in matters of web page design, but...yeah, it's great! ;D

I really like this new look. And as for travel - if I were you I'd book the boat!
Aug. 10th, 2006 09:17 pm (UTC)
The new look seems to be getting the thumbs up from everyone -- it's a definite winner!

Before the discount airline carriers, I always used to take the ferry -- but I'm not good on a boat. It's not that I don't have any sea legs, because I do; but I bore easily if I'm in a confined space. Besides, I've already paid for my tickets! Oh well, I expect it'll all have blown over by October...

Just listening to the news in the background -- how can the current situation be described as 'the most devastating terrorist attack ever launched in Britain', if the whole point of today's operation has been that the police and security forces have preempted the plot?

I think I've improved.

You're not the only one who thinks you have.
