Alcohol & Books!

Came to the realization that the peach bellinis I love aren't so much peach bellinis as they are peach sorbets with alcohol, lolol. Take frozen peach puree, peach schnapps and spumanti and you get something similar but not quite as fabulous as the bellinis at the Cheesecake Factory. Yes my favorite alcoholic drink is basically a variation of a peach smoothie.

Have been carting around Shadowfall by James Clemens for the past few weeks and have only read 180 pages. So far its actually a good read, which is why I have yet to return it to the library. Still, reading it while waiting in line etc. means I'm nowhere near finishing it anytime soon. BAH.

And yet I'm still tempted to buy New Tricks by John Levitt and Princeps' Fury by Jim Butcher even though I prob won't read them till next month any way.

Permanent sale starts today. Am getting one :) Then I'll stop thinking about it and *wondering* every time they do the sale.

Sale plus more...

[001] Highlight of the day: got a permanent account \o/ Transfered my remaining paid account time too :)

[002] LJ also has a new layout style called Minimalism. The nifty part of the design? Well the empasis on the comments:

I'm hoping that the css is decent for playing with, especially since its a new style.

[003] Out of all the things listed on the releases page, there were two main bits that made me squee:

"Title of post in Last Post, Friends Pages, Calendar view (every page where displayed multiple entries) now links to entry." - Mixit/Expressive has this already and I ADORE being able to click on titles to get to posts :)


Added 50 additional userpics to Permanent Accounts (so all Perm Accounts should have 195 userpics as of today) ⇒ \o\o/o/

[004] Why couldn't the Flexible Squares layouts have broken on LJ instead of Smooth Sailing?

Flexisquare might have been my first layout but smooth sailing was my first love D: Ok, so I might have moved onto a long term relationship with Mixit/Expressive and Bloggish (yay for threesomes) but STILL >_> Not cool LJ.

While smoothsailing layouts are broken, y'all might want to switch to other layouts for the time being (adding ?format=light is a bit of a hassle). Have a recent layout maker pimp post here.

Also, if anyone was using one of my smoothsailing layouts, I have a Bloggish alternative with a horizontal menu here.

Edit: Unfortunately, Bloggish's custom comment pages are also effected :( Luckily the other views are fine, as is Expressive/Mixit.

So you can still use Bloggish - just remember to set custom pages to the non-custom and default lj view instead I think.
