«The $12,000 Balloon»

Red Balloon in LondonQuick tip: don't put a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon. One man in London figured that out the hard way. He wanted to "pop" the question; instead, the question floated away. Perhaps this was a blessing in disguise, however. She's refusing to talk to him until he gets a new ring. If that's all that matters to her, he's better off without a ring.

Those of you observant enough will notice minor changes in the blog's template. However, under the surface it was a rather large update. I've switched the blog over to the new CSS layout I've been working on. Just one step closer to the merging of Realm of Marf and Master Marf. I've got it set up so the blog and my additional webpages (when I add them) use the same CSS file, so I can make a tweak to the template in the one CSS file and have it apply everywhere.

I'm still open for suggestions for what games and such to add.


  1. This was stupid. And yes, your observation is right on, she won't talk to him until he gets another ring ?? Um, see ya !

    Sorry, I didn't catch the changes. I have a question though, what is Marf ? And as for requesting additions, whatcha got ??

  2. The visual changes were minor. There's a slight gradient behind the post titles and sidebar titles. I also adjusted a few font sizes, and the gray text is a little brighter (from #aaaaaa to #bbbbbb).

    Marf is a name I came up with during a 7th grade math project. We had a search and rescue team we were to layout a search pattern for, and Marf was one of the member's name.

    I've been thinking about doing a blog post about the name Marf, because you're not the first to ask about it.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
