I know, I know — how crazy am I? It's not even Halloween yet and I'm already talking about snowmen and carols. What can I say? I'm like one of those department stores that puts up Independence Day decorations at Easter.
Yes, I'm talking about a new look for HorseFeathers.
It's snazzy, it's clean, it's fresh... it's been approved by a panel of judges I invited to see the test blog (thanks, judges!). And now I come to you with a very important question.
Personally I want to install it RIGHT NOW because it's so amazing, but I realize that we're a far cry from winter at the moment, however cold it is.
So here's what I thought. I'll give you guys two weeks to vote on the new poll to the side. Let me explain the choices:
1. Right After Thanksgiving.
For me, that marks the end of fall. So even though there's pumpkin pie left over in the fridge, winter hath come as soon as the relatives leave.
2. When the First Snow Falls.
What's more wintery than snow? Usually up here in the Land of Frigidness, we get snow quite early... but this has been a warm summer (global warming, hahah) so I doubt we'll get snow before Thanksgiving.
3. December 1st.
Simple enough: it's in between the Solstice and Thanksgiving, a median time.
4. Winter Solstice.
December 21st is this year's winter solstice. Gosh, that's almost Christmas... so late!
To me, winter solstice isn't the beginning of winter, it's the middle of winter. But you may have different opinions.
(Whispers: the new look is far too awesome to wait that long!)
Help me! Vote on the poll...
Oh, fine. The new look can't wait until then. Here's a teeny little sneak peek...
By the way: thank you all for your kind words yesterday. I'm so glad HorseFeathers means something to you all!
