Kind of over it

Not really in a blogging mood. Go read my 3295737926t572456734903490 comments complaining about my new look and maybe you'll see why. But while I'm on the subject of comments, Hulk and Jan share the Commet of the Week honors. Go click on This Week's Special, there.

Until I once again wish to indulge in this sometimes thankless hobby, here are pictures of Henry the Great Orange and White Hunter, a naughty Winston, and also an autumnal Tallulah.

  1. I just got home from a dinner with many North Carolina bloggers, and I will blop about it tomorrow but Carpool Queen touched my bra, so you have that to hear about. But the POINT of my comment is that I came home and read all these comments and I was hoping someone would explain why the Wheezer comment was funny.
    It’s from Steel Magnolias. Sally Field is despondent because her daughter Julia Roberts is dead–an emotion I would not share because y’all know how I feel about Julia Roberts–and she is getting really emotional and Olympia Dukakis pushes Shirley MacClaine (who plays Wheezer) up to Sally Field and says, “HIT WHEEZ-A! It’ll make you feel bett-a!”
    So there it is. There was a lot of name dropping in that paragraph.

  2. So lovely to meet you IRL….wow, I should have asked for your autograph on my take out box. What I REALLY wanted was a bite of your cheesecake, but I’m not too picky. And I like the new look.

  3. Alright…give it up about your thing against Jules. I don’t have time to read through your archives (not that I could find them with this mess of a blog design you’ve got).
    BTW, just FYI, my grandmother is a long-standing member of the First Presbyterian Church of Monroe, same as Owen Jenkins—longtime admirer of Ouisa.

  5. Whew, for a little while there I thought you said, “Hit Wheezer” and that would be ME. I had to wheeze down the hallway leaving a trail of snotty tissues while hacking and barking as I traveled to the computer to get my daily fix of sweet little Junie. But now that I know that y’all are talking about hitting Weezer…well that is ok! But if’n I get any sicker, I’ll be the one falling off the tombstone.

    The Bye Bye Pie blog is just fine. People don’t deal with change well evidently.
    Folks are coming to read up on your daily happenings and not to look at the blog header for cryin out loud. If they are, then they are missing the point. Really.
    Well, missing the point, AND Hulk.
    Bah. Blog on baby.

  7. Forget the haters! Haters get a kick out of making people feel like crap. So, don’t’ let them get their kicks off of you! Your new look is faboosh! Got inspiration for that made up word from your awesome background. Loved Vern in his Speedo and loafers and i especially love Vern and Norma welcoming us to your blog. It makes me smile every time I click on your blog and they’re up there looking all hospitable and such.
    Faboosh work!

  8. Junebug, you know I adore you and would defend you to the death, but you *did* ask people what they though of the new design. The saying “Don’t ask the question if you don’t want to know the answer.” is still around for a good reason.
    That being said, I’m also a pretty big proponent of if-you-can’t-say-something-nice… and I’m sorry that your feelings were hurt by those who may not have been familiar with that concept.
    That also being said, I feel like Vern is looking into my very soul and hypnotizing me with his eyes every time I see your masthead. I feel the urge to confess my sins, without the trouble of putting on shoes or a bra and going to church. How convenient!
    And also too as well, the “ba, be, bi, bo, bu” bit always reminds me of the Three Stooges and makes me grin!


    And I count the blackbirds in the pie every time I visit, just in case there are indeed four and twenty one of these days! So your new design is like a giant, interactive, Where’s Waldo type funhouse for me. Thanks!!

    Anywho, I love your the new look of your blog, Junie. Poop on the haters.

  10. I don’t know if my 2 cents will matter that much, but I really like your new design. It represents things you like and that have meaning to you–and it’s all vintage-y, which is cool.
    Don’t let the naysayers bring you down.
    Love the photo of Tallulah in the leaves–she should send out Christmas cards. Henry is growing up too fast!

  11. No, actually, I didn’t ask people what they thought of my new blog design, and I very specifically didn’t ask because I didn’t want to hear it.

  12. Hey! What do you say we all go to North Carolina and cheer June up? We’ll carpool to save gas, the car is leaving Napa in one hour. Who wants me to pick them up?

  13. Your design reminds me of “Carnivale,” and since that was my favorite HBO series (which is why it was cancelled), I love it. Convoluted, but there you have it.

  15. On the way down to Houston to pick up Sugar Mommy, swing out west here and pick up the Garden Hat lady, who does not know how to spell Ouisa but is practically perfect in every other way.

  17. June,
    You spelled my name with a y instead of an e but hey, you have 2 followers named Bronwen/Bronwyn. How weird is that? Growing up, I thought I was the only one but I guess not. I think I will change it when I comment to my blog name- Funny in my Mind or FIMM for short to alleviate confusion.
    I adore the new blog look with all your fave things and who has the right to criticize other peoples taste?

  18. I’m a couple days late but I just wanted to throw in another positive comment.. I adore your new blog design! That style is just what I always wanted for the blog that I still haven’t started.. so now I can just live vicariously through your vintagey header! 🙂

  19. Oops, my bad! I apologize, I should have re-read the previous post to confirm (or in this case disnonunconfirm) my mistaken memory of you asking what folks thought of the redesign. I think I was thinking of the title. Sorry about that!!
