Fine, dammit.

Even though I felt that my the dark background of my blog page was sexy as hell, I have changed it to gray and made the text black after the comments made on last night's blog posting

I figure, seeing as the whole point of a blog is for other people to read it, it's in my best interest not to have people crossing their eyes in an attempt to read what it is I'm bitching about today. 

Besides, Comrade PhysioProf has a persuasive way with words:

CPP: And yeah, the light on dark theme is a motherfucking nightmare!

Me: As far as the black background and light text, I really, really, really don't want to change the background. But I promise that if I keep writing really long blogs, I will change it so they're easier to read. :)

CPP: Why? It totally sucks shit. It is a physiological fact of human vision that light text on a dark background is much more difficult to read.

I can't argue with his science. Hopefully now Pieces of Me is easier to read, even if it is much less sexy.

True enough, Comrade. True enough.

Don't listen to PP - he's full of shit. [insert sarcastic tone] I, on the other hand, know everything about everything :)

The blog's much easier to read now btw.

I personally had no problem. But CPP wields quite the might around these parts.

Or so I hear.

Much easier to read and still sexy as hell.

And I'm totally taking your spinach dip to Thanksgiving w/ relatives-in-law-that-I-haven't-even-met-yet.

CPP was right.

Plus, I need more squint lines like a hole in the head.

Grey is better, thanks.
