Mighty Big Change

You know, I didn't think web design could kill my soul.

But then today I clicked the TWOP button in my toolbar.

Now, I've been reading since it was I began reading for the Gilmore Girls recaps, and that show premiered in 2000, so we're going to assume that I started reading MBTV in early 2001. Back then, the site looked like this:Last Friday this is what the website looked like: Six years passed and very little changed. A lot has changed since I first started reading TWOP, but the website itself never changed. Always snarky, always funny, always great.

Earlier this year TWOP was bought by Bravo. At first I was a tad worried about it, but months later not much had changed about the website at all. The biggest change would be that some of the articles that would have normally been featured on were instead featured in Mondo Extras. That was it, the biggest difference. Then today I click the button...What. The. Fuck. !? This is so... weird. The thing I hate the most about the new layout is that instead of the little drawings associated with each show, there's a picture. How am I supposed to read Supernatural recaps without the Big Gay Dragon? This sucks. I hate so much about the things it chooses to be.

A big thanks to the way back machine for letting me time travel back to simpler times (like last week) in order to grab some screen caps.

Hawaii: The Adventure So Far

Today is my one month anniversary of arriving in Hawaii. Since I haven't really updated at all since I've been here, I figured I'd do a quick run-down of what I've been up to, as told by the pictures I've taken.

Before Hawaii: Hannah tried to sneak into my suitcase. As if I wouldn't notice!
Boo took the more subtle approach of sitting atop my suitcase and glaring at me with his evil little eyes.
Then I got to Hawaii. The view off our lanai:
There are oceans and sunsets in Hawaii.
There are also Germans in Hawaii. This one is named Judith, she likes alcohol and shopping.
Hawaii also has the Arizona Memorial. Despite what you may have heard, Josh Hartnett and Kate Beckinsale do not hang out at Pearl Harbor. Judith was disappointed.
But the most important thing they have in Hawaii? Shoe stores. I'm averaging one new pair a week.
These pictures and more can be seen over on flickr.

I'm Sorry

I know I haven't blogged at all since I've been in Hawaii. My apologies. I'll work on that. Tomorrow Erica, Judith, and I are going to Pearl Harbor, so I should have a good story to tell soon.

So, to catch you up, check out the pictures here!
