Midlife Makeover

Two very important facets of my life celebrate their birthday today. My one and only husband, and my one and only blog (Half a decade, gasp!).

I thought it was high time we gave one of them a face-lift and a makeover to make it svelte and sesky (the blog, not the bloke).

So ladies, and gentlemen, unveiling the new look, design, what have you.

Also Happy Birthday to S and Happy Birthday to Blog.

I wondered if I'd clicked on the wrong blog by mistake! I'd wanted to comment on your previous post but ...

Nice, cheery new look, hardly cynical. And happy birthday to S!

Shachii said...

In love with my life said...

Totally like the sesky look...*applause on half a decade*That's almost ancient!

If only there was an option of changing our skin like blog skins...what we would not be?
And "appy budday" to S.Are you cooking chicken?

Mumbai Diva said...

oooooh. half a decade!!! happy birdday to your blog...err and also to S.

Like the title font. very pretty.

Parul said...

Awesome all around! Happy happy to Blog and Mr Cyn!

Cynic in Wonderland said...

thankooo ideasmithy.

shub - thats my new passion no. the guitar. the fact that i still cant play a darn thing is a different story altogether.

sra- this is the wonderland bit of the look. wonder what is a cynical look tho. pls pls to comment on the earlier post

shachii that reminds me. if my failing memory serves me right after twenty years, wasnt your birthday in march sometime?

maidinmalaysia - :) thank you

meena - thank you very much. im feeling quite smug about it too. ( for today at any rate, by tomorrow i might hate it)

in love with my life, cooked chicken on the birthday eve, today is out. sesky it is no. i think i shall start volunteering my services for blog makeover. wonder whether anyone will pay me for it tho. hmmmm

mumbai diva - shush dont tell anyone, but that was made in powerpoint. you can take a person out of a presentation-writing job, but you cant take the presentation writing out of a person.

Parul - Mr Cyn will be henceforth called that wonly. Why did i never think of that. the remember the fgds intro spiel .." my mister has xyz bijness and i have two issues"

Nandini Vishwanath said...

litterateuse said...

Whoa, what just happened here?! Setski only, like the g-tarre!

Ok, so unless you know your husband for less than 5 years - 5 years ago you were busy starting a blog while he wondered about where the romantic date would be? :O

Arunima said...

very nice. I want to change my template too but don't know how. I am also turning 5 soon.

happy birthday to your hubby.

Cynic in Wonderland said...

thank you nandini, aniruddha, pinku, adi

g - er, i know the spouse for four years, married for two. i am not quite sure romantic dates have happened tho. our romantic conversations have this habit of getting derailed into conversations about sharks and other such stuff. sigh.

arunima - i will do it for you? ive been bitten by blog changing bug. im sorely tempted to change it again today

Reluctant Warrior said...

Hey!! You converted!! Finally! the geek barrier has been broken :).

sidebar: Most software applications come with a dozens of features which majority of people never use (Macros in Excel, Autoformatting in Word, dict-messaging in mobile-phones). However, when a certain feature starts getting used by a larger part of the population (especially non techy users), we say that it broke the geek barrier.

Congratulations!!

And all this while I kept thinking, that all those who matter (in the blogosphere) don't quite use all the stuff that exists in there!

Silvara said...

Very nice!! love the new template - great pressie for your birthday!

Happy birthday!

Cynic in Wonderland said...

thank you silvara

reluctant warrior, ahem i made the template in powerpoint. Not in geekese. I broke the marketing barrier i wonder?

Maddy said...

hey the look is good - and you are already lost swimming in a fish bowl? if you were lost in an ocean, OK...but in a fish bowl? hmm....

ah! I reread it - lost soul in the fishbowl...that's profound..

great blogs, keep going...

P said...
