blogging gobbledygook and such


In the midst of fretting about self’s progressing procrastination as deadline for assignments loom ominously, this came in the inbox:

Dear sulz,

Mark has given you 15 credits as a gift.
Visit to buy something nice.

A message from Mark
For helping so much and so nicely in the forums.
And for having the best avatar ever in the history of blogging πŸ™‚

–The Team

This is self’s reply:



you serious?!


THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!

ps. why why why? don’t leave me in the dark!

And the second reply because am such a doofus for not reading the entire message the first time around:


i didn’t read your message properly.

i didn’t know having a nice avatar would get me anywhere!

and sometimes i don’t offer very good advice in the forums.

oh whatever, i love you! i love wordpress!!!


Had fallen in love with the Bus Full of Hippies skin from Sunburntkamel for the Sandbox theme, but so many others skins to explore!

Everybody, this is Mark.


He’s English, he is absolutely fabulous, and this is what his wife should get him.

(Do you think he’s already wearing it, actually, because in the picture above the thong he looks rather… uncomfortable.)

Thank you thank you thank you, Mark!

  1. heh, i wonder if those are the credits wank and i sent him as leftovers from the ‘sale’ in january.
    anyway, awesome, it’s nice to see this in use!

    sulz: why didn’t you and wank keep the leftovers? thanks to your lovely sandbox skin, it looks fantastic!

  2. the blog looks WONDERFUL!!!!

    sulz: she knows, she knows; the wonders of css!

  3. child,

    what have i told you about using expletive equivalents on the blog? Tsk tsk

    you also need some spiritual help, suggesting *gasp* undergarments for an elder person. what is this world coming to.

    Word press rocks, and is hands down the best frigging damned best platform because

    i use it

    keep up the good work sulz.


    sulz: ah, you’re not that much older than self! speaking to elders like one does with peers helps make them feel young-at-heart, no?

    thanks. πŸ™‚ looks like won’t be using your headers anytime soon! (will be using them though, for sure, there are some really really nice ones personally love.)

  4. yay for you! I think u deserve it!

    sulz: am not sure if deserve it, but am certainly very grateful for it!

  5. p.s i love your current theme.

    sulz: thank you. πŸ™‚ am nuts over nice floral designs on clothes, and themes or skins are like clothes for the blog, yeah?

    Great news sulz and a beautiful blog it is too. πŸ™‚

    sulz: thank you for the compliment. am very pleased with blog. *silly grin on face cannot be represented by symbols on the keyboard*

  7. yeah, I must admit a get a little girly when it comes to outstanding floral designs, which is exactly what this theme is. I wish I had an upgrade to get it. πŸ˜€

    i was wondering why you had a skin… thats different from the free one.. you got an upgrade that’s why! hehe..

    Congrats!!!! πŸ™‚ lovely look.

    sulz: thank you. πŸ˜€ am loving blog very very much at the moment.

  9. That photo is about 7 years old now I think. I look similar, just more aged πŸ™‚

    Love the theme πŸ™‚

    sulz: aged is good, especially when done gracefully.

    all thanks to you! *hugs*

  10. WordPress rocks because the themes are better of those of say, Pitas or Blogger πŸ˜›

    sulz: too right! err, pitas?

  11. […] CSS upgrade this time is thanks to Juan (previously Mark gave me the upgrade), who’s also ported the skin to Sandbox for me. He was awesome in […]
