Owning Up to Pink

No, you have not made a wrong turn, my friends.

This is still Gypsy's Haven...only pink!

A big "Thank You" to Aleks who helped me set this up! When I wandered over at Paolo's Blog some time back, he had all these different links to nice blog template designs and I found this template to be quite nice...and gypsy-ish....until it was set up. And Aleks, bless his soul, with his busy schedule and with blog celeb interviews, even walked the extra mile (and did a great job!) by tweaking the template design a wee bit to make the posts readable in this template.

I just didn't realize it was so...pink!

Life can be ironic. But, as we sometimes say, "C'est la vie!" Some of you might think just because I am a gypsy, I love change and spontaneity--well, not really, not all the time. I can be a really boring, cautious creature of habit. (For example, today is a sunny Saturday and instead of going out with friends to the city center, I opted to have a warm mug of tea, stay in my room and finish my readings and essays as the deadlines are about to break down my door!)

So this will take some getting used to, but I do feel it's high time I get out of the dark (blue), so to speak.

...I know my pink luggage will be happy.

What do you think?

I never expected you'd try pink for your background...remember you have a little of a hesitation over your pink luggage. :-) Pink is a color that makes me happy...does itmake u happy too? Nice background you've got.

the text isn't lining up in my firefox browser for some reason -- the text is in both the white and the pink backgrounds.

Pink it is!

It's like Victoria's Secret, ssssh. :)

And I thought you're turning your blog template into pink for some breast cancer awareness advocacy or what have you. After briefly knowing Gypsy, I just couldn't associate her with the color pink. But this change is welcome as always. Let's celebrate your pinkness. :)

freeze said...

I therefor conclude, you're beginning to embrace the irrisistible charm of pink. welcome, welcome... :D

Paolo Mendoza said...

vernaloo said...

Beng said...

Carlotta, I second the motion. I like the swirls of colors on the sides. It's nice, Gypsy. I agree with all the commenters here: Embrace your inner pinkness. :)

Gypsy said...

Snglguy, hehe..yes, I aim to please (my luggage).

Blogie, thanks for dropping by!!

Bebepink, thanks and its not the pink per se that makes me happy, its the whole design. :) Anyway, I read somewhere that pink is supposed to have a calming effect.

Wil, sorry to hear that! I am using Firefox, too but it came out okey...hope its just a temporary glitch!

Mitsuru, hmm...not sure how to respond to that..hehe.

Abaniko,am I THAT readable and predictable?! Oh well, at least this lets you see that I am not really that predictable. :)

Freeze, yes, you said it. Embrace..embrace.

Jap, you made me laugh out loud!! Oo nga no, I am now in touch with my inner pinkness. *grin*

Carlotta, yeah that was actually what caught me, the swirls of colors on the sides. Looked very gypsy-ish. :)

Paolo, cozy? Hmm...never thought of it that way, but now that you mentioned it...

Verns, I JUST KNEW you would! *wink*

Beng, yup yup, as Jap said, I have COME OUT OF THE CLOSET! Hehe.

I love PINK!!!

sillyserious said...

uh oh. i observed the same bug on my office comp as Will. i think it has to do with resolution. this template doesn't display properly on high-res monitors (the background is centered while the header and the body are leaning a bit to the left). tried to fix it with my meager css and skills, but to no avail. sorry, gypsy :( i'll keep trying though...

Gypsy said...

Kayni, me, too--I think! ;)

Aleks, oh really? I hope this wont take too much of your time, though..thanks gayuddd!!

lazarus said...

ipanema said...
