She’s Gone off the Rails


Well I’ve done it again. My latest earth shattering discovery is that computers and Ambien don’t play well together. I woke up this morning, checked out the blog and lo and behold it was completely changed. **rips out hair** I was twiddling with the layout last night. Today I don’t like the new one at all.
