I like your new color scheme!

Thanks, it was the original color scheme, but I changed it to blue, then changed it back, because this is more energizing and feminine.

I answered the Meme but I was too stupid to figure out how to remove the blog at the top and move them all down. I also don't know 5 people with blogs. So I am a complete Meme failure.

Pinehurst in my Dreams said...

"Optional" was the optimum word. I could tell you how to cut, paste, delete and add to the lists & create a new list, but instead. . .you could say - well, that part was optional. . .

myrtle beached whale said...

So are some Memes not optional? if a Meme is not optional, it means we have to do it or what, we get whacked?

Pinehurst in my Dreams said...

Ok - everything is optional - the "free will" sort of thing. I suppose you are supposed to feel guilty and lie awake all night wondering what will happen if you don't complete the meme. Your name could be dropped from their blog lists (if it's on there),- people could leave your blog in droves (if there are any -note the ambiguity of "any"), and everyone who knows you read their blogs could move to a new URL address and not tell you where they have gone.

I don't think they could whack you unless they first caught you. Just surmising.

myrtle beached whale said...

the only person who reads my blogs consistently is you. I will take that chance.

Pinehurst in my Dreams said...

Well, no guilt or fear from me. . .I might hit you with my purse. . .

myrtle beached whale said...

or run over me with your Pink Caddy.

Wish I could. . .
