He's going... he's really going.

About three weeks ago, Dad finally told Dave he wanted him to move out. Dave made a comment to the effect of, "You don't appreciate the work I do around here." Dad was about to say something, then Dave said, "Fine. I'll leave." And we hadn't seen him since.

This morning, Dave arrived with some friends, and began moving stuff out of the house, into his van.

Two thoughts:
  1. Wow.
  2. About four years too late.
I'm going to ask Dad if he'll make sure he has Dave's keys and garage door opener once he's removed all his stuff.

Not a Closet Nazi

To the mystery blog commenter (whose submission to the previous post has been deleted per his request):

Many thanks for your detective work. Though this template is already being used by Kallese, I plan on tweaking the colours to be sufficiently distinguishable from hers. Someday.

/me sips her vodka and wonders how he missed her secondary Strangelove reference....

Ah, yes, Steve and Rex. I'll give them your best.

Unfortunately for the mystery blog commenter, it seems that he is not so much a mystery, even with his post deleted.

Call for help

As you may have noticed from recent posts, I've been having a bit of a font problem whenever I blockquote something.

<blockquote>This is an example of something I might blockquote.</blockquote>

which then displays as:

This is an example of something I might blockquote.

So that was fine, but notice now this text. See how it's bigger than the text I entered above the blockquote? It's driving me nuts, frankly. And the good folks at Blogger can't figure it out, either. I e-mailed them, and this was their official response (three days later):

Thanks for writing in. Currently, Blogger Support does not support general CSS & HTML questions. Please see our Blogger Help article for details:


This problem may also be a problem specific to the Blogger template. Our engineers will look further into this problem and resolve it if it is a problem with Blogger.

I tried changing the font size after the blockquote to "2" (whatever that corresponds to), and the font itself is just about right, but the spacing between the lines is smaller, so it's not really a solution, as far as I'm concerned.

So if anyone out there can help me figure out what the problem is, I will be terribly grateful.
Thank you and goodnight.
