You're In the Right Place

...
New blog look. I got crazy with the camera today. Do you like it? Or does it give you a headache and push you to the brink of a seizure? Is it too much? I can go back to the simple egg header.

One thing....I now know that we have a LOT of expired food items in our house!

UPDATE: AT the brilliant suggestion of musicmakermomma, I added a short survey to your right. Thanks!

Wow! I've missed a lot in the last 2 days. Love all your expired items, but I loved the plain carton of eggs too. maybe you should have a poll! Internet fun.

The irony of getting called for a different interview from the office where you have a job offer - wonder what will come of all that? I think you handled it perfectly, if you take the job you'll just call and cancel the interview then.

I hate the whole billing department concept. Although my clinic has the nicest girl in charge, at least she is pleasant to deal with even if we don't agree with all the charges. Hope you get your refund before you have to pay again, I bet they are hedging so they don't have to do the paperwork.

Hi Best When Used By - I really like the new look! Very colourful and it really draws you in. My only suggestion would be to maybe reduce the number of photos just so you get maximum impact - and I particularly like the ones where you show the expiry date. Very cool :-)

Ok, so I like the new look. It's cool and different. But I liked the old one too. It sort of spoke for itself.

Now for the job. Yes on the interview. You're right. You haven't accepted another job yet so I think you're in the clear there.

And the clinic billing. OMG...I went through the same thing. They charged my amex $10k then the cycle was cancelled. I called and asked for a refund. And I had to wait to speak with someone else only to find out they will not refund a credit card. I had to wait 10 days for a check. And yes, that's a helluva lotta money to let sit in someone ELSE's little bank account, thank you very much. Snakes.

I like the old one because it is so obviously the eggs which are "expired" ( sorry that sounds horrible) but I think you could use the new one as either a side bar further down or footer -because it is so cool too!
as for the jobs - aint it the truth - just like buses really - feast or famine! Good luck with the salary negotiations. Curious what kind of job, knowing you are a nurse and a lawyer, no?

I like the new look! I voted as such!

I voted for the eggs because I like the irony of that... but the new look is definitely eye-catching!

Way to go on the job front. Sort of gets the juices flowing again to be in demand, right? Good for you!

And I totally agree with you about the refund. If it was $100 or something like that, you might be OK to just let it ride, but $5,600??? I'd want that back in my account ASAP, too!

YOU DID THAT!!!!! Impressive!

I like them both, but the egg one seemed a bit more ....serious. This one seems more whimsical and makes the meaning of the blog seem less obvious. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. I like the new one!

The new looks is oh-so-cool but it pushes your awesome posts a little too below-the-fold. I voted for the eggs for that reason, but neato design!
