Well. I have been tussling with Blogger most of last night, trying to tweak things with partial success.
The header was giving me the most trouble, until I remembered AHA! I HAZ MAD CALLIGRAPHY SKILLZ!
So, the sepia-toned thingy up there is the first draft of something that will hopefully look much better once I practice said mad skillz.
Can't fix the problem? Do something completely different!...I'm brilliant, I really am...
