If you’re reading this in a reader, because you are a brilliant soul (Google Reader is not only my BFF but my lover and also, I would tongue kiss it if I could)(maybe some days I do)(shut UP), I’d ask you kindly to click through and see my fancy new design! It was done by the fabulous admin at Mommy Brained.

See, now, I know her REAL name, but unlike my stupid ass, she goes by “admin.” Intentional or not, I’m not positive. But she rules, and you really should check her out if you want a site design. And a laugh.

Along with my new design, I have decided that I am going to start my own (crappy) advice column, because the world needs to know more of my worthless opinions, right? (don’t answer that) On my sidebar, you will see a new page added “Go Ask Aunt Becky” and if you click on it, a page will open! Like delicious magic!

Your questions can be submitted directly through the site allowing for some degree of anonymity, because sometimes, shit the things I want to know aren’t really something I want attached to my good name.

The answers will air on Sundays (also known in my house as Post Secret Days) and any other time I feel the need to answer something rather than try and come up with a real, actual post.

(also, I’ve been trying to answer comments IN the comments. Because I win at LIFE.)

To answer the most burning and frequent questions that I will no doubt get, let me strike preemptively:

1) I’d guess that my sexy ass is a gift from God and genetics.

2) That rash on your crotch is scabies and no, I will not look at it.

You’re welcome.

  1. Awesome! I can’t wait to have a question to ask you, since you won’t look at my crotch rash, damns it!

    (Sunday is Post Secret Day at my house too!)

    Good luck with the scabies.

  2. Another great design! I love it. Also: you make me laugh so much! I almost don’t *need* vodka now that I’ve found your blog…

    Ha! There’s always room for vodkacuddly puppies.

  3. Love the new design, especially the subheading. Spelling is for nerds.

    Spelling is for pussies. Literally, I mean, like my cats.

  4. Great design! I live for Post Secret Day. Can’t wait to see the advice column. I’m sure I could use some Aunt Becky advice to make my life even more awesome.

    Awesome or awful, we’ll have to wait and see, right?

  5. Bunny!

    But seriously. The Alice in Wonderland Goes Goth is awesome. I shall have to stalk this new person admin. (While wearing my “Some call it stalking, I call it LOVE” t-shirt. Oh yeah.)

    I’m mad, you’re mad, we’re all mad down here.

  6. That Admin sure does make great designs, and yes, she is hilariously funny. Can’t wait to see what people ask!

    I’m alternating between being thrilled and slightly nervous. I’m not very smart and what if people ask GOOD questions. Not like, “where are my keys?”

  7. Sounds like lots of fun. Is there a limit to the advice or will it run the gamut from – Advice on how to get rid of the cranky mailman’s body TO Can I make gorgonzola cheese using yak’s milk? Or are we going stricltly affairs of the heart, in which case, the mailman would not count as I never liked him.

    Anything you want to ask. I cannot promise that the answer will help in any way, shape or form, but I’ll try.

  8. The catepillar makes me giggle. It reminds me of the old Disney movie… yay for blatant drug use by animated characters in a children’s film! Walt Disney was never the most subtle of men… that aside, awesome redesign and I can’t wait to read the new column!

    Did you see that Tim Burton is making a new crazy looking Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp? I cannot wait.

  9. Yeeeeeaaaaaaah BABY! You rock, Becks. Wait. Where the fuck are the nav buttons? What did I do wrong? SOS! Let me see if I can figure it out…


    Your parents must have hated you to name you “admin.”

  10. This design is HoT man! Love it!
    I am so waiting for the new column, its gonna be the new hit of internet reading for sure. And possibly material for a book? David Letterman made a really stupid worthless book of facts didn’t he? But yours, now yours, will be chock full a shit that everyone needs to know.

    I am certain that all of the questions will solve ALL of our burning questions. Or, like my friend said above “something.

  11. Love the new sight design.

    It may take me a little while to come up with a question worthy of your awesomeness (what if the rash is not on my crotch?)!

    Still scabies ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. nice new look lady! looking forward to reading your advice column – i am sure it will be informative and educational to all. or something.

    I’m going to guess that it will be “or something.” And that, my friend, is a-okay with me.

  13. Kinda…. black.

    In’ it?

    especialy around the edges…

    It is. Do you think another color would work better? (I am colorblind)(stop laughing)


    I can’t wait to send you questions. So far, I have not come up with any that are worthy of you reading, but trust me, I will.

    I will look forward to it.

  15. Love, Love, Love the new design! Alice in Wonderland after a few cups of the Mad Hatter’s tea-flavored vodka (they make tea flavored vodka – really!)

    Anyway, I can’t wait to read your advice…and think of some questions to ask. If I had all the answers I wouldn’t have anxiety attacks (or need vodka on occasion)! ๐Ÿ™‚

    They really make tea-flavored vodka? That’s WILD. I’ve heard–but never tried–that someone makes bacon-flavored vodka. Which. EW.

    And I DO like bacon.

  16. Kick ass design! She did a GREAT job! I wish I could do cool shit like that. No…wait, I don’t. Then I’d have to share my talent with the world and I’m WAY too lazy to do that.

    Scattered Mom is doin the biz card thing too?! Well shit! I’m gonna have to hurry up and break out the construction paper and glitter and make mine!

    I think this is a contest for winning business cards themselves. Either way, get crack-a-lacking, yo.

  17. Love your new design ~ it really “fits” you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    And cannot WAIT to read next Sunday’s advice! You are going to kick butt, I’m quite certain.

    I sure hope that you’re right. It should be fun. Although not as much fun as a barrel of monkeys. Whatever THAT means.

  18. Aaaw, you put an alice theme up on my twentyfifth birthday, how kind! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ first question for your collumn then- does being twenty five mean I am no longer a young mum and go I have to start behaving like a grownup? ๐Ÿ™ lol

    Wait, you have to act like a grown-up after 25? Hm. I missed that memo.

  19. love the new look, but miss the archives option. I am new to your blog and would much rather read old posts and belly laugh than fold the mountain of laundry in my living room. HELP!

  20. I love this design! I’m embarrassed to ask, but how did you do it? I just used one of the pre-fabed ones from Blogger.

    Cannot wait to see your advice column!

    I could never do this. It’s custom from a good friend. She does good work, eh?

  21. This is absolutely fantastic. I love how you managed to still incorporate the notebook design…nothing similar about our sites anymore (what, me, jealous? naw…).

    I hear they’re doing another design upgrade for the notepad chaos. Maybe it will be easier to work with. That’s my complaint with that design. It was clunky. But shit, it was FREE. Which is ALWAYS better than paying.

  22. I love post secret too! Your advice + Post Secret= a little slice of internet heaven.

    Oh, Post Secret is the best. I got one of their books for Christmas and as soon as I can have a coffee table without a puppy laying atop it, I’m putting it out. It’s amazing.

  23. p.s. I’ve submitted to post secret. it’s SUCH a thrill to see your secret!

    You know what is depressing? I don’t have a single titillating secret to tell them.

  24. The RSS feed button in the Drink Me bottle? Effing genius. Love it!

    Isn’t she amazing? I about died with glee when I saw that.

  25. “Do you think another color would work better?”

    Heavens no… I was just used to the other color. When my screen went black in the beginning, I got nervous.

    What was the other color?
    (ok…so I’m old…)(What?)

    (I am too) It was kind of a teal color. Very pretty, but I don’t think it would go with this design.

  26. FYI: in-line linking works on page (here) but in my feed reader (Google Reader) the redirect 404s. This applies to in-site and off-site linking. (If you don’t understand what I’m saying, copy and paste this comment to your admin.

    Copy, paste, sent to The Daver. Thank you.

  27. I love the new design! When I first saw it, I just got an impression of overall, graphic awesomeness. Then I caught on to the “Drink Me,” and I adore it! Years ago, I heard Sara Vowell describe how, in the course of trying hang out with a group of hard-core goths, she realized that she was the rare “pink goth.” Perhaps this is a well-known concept, but she’s the first person I ever heard of articulate it. That’s what your layout makes me think of! The cutesiness and the creepiness of everything at once. Does that not sound like a compliment? It’s supposed to!

    That’s a total compliment, yo. I love the RSS button!

  28. I am loving the new site design. I will be submitting very important questions for you to answer soon. Great job! (And I just adore my google reader as well. I pretty much adore all things google. Except Blogger. I really miss WordPress.

    I cannot wait to get your questions (although I will not know it is you unless you say so). You like WordPress better? Why? Blogger seems so…easy to use!

  29. Very nice… I wish I had even a modicum of design talent…ah well…can’t have everything!

    Exactly! You cannot be both. This is what I reassure myself with when I am achingly jealous of other people’s talent where I have none.

  30. You are totally my hero.

    LOVE the new design, especially since now it won’t throw me off when I find other blogs that have your old one. This is so incredibly you!

    I know! Every time I clicked on a blog with this template I was shocked to NOT see my name on it.

  31. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
