This is a proud moment for me.
And for you, if we’re so close that you share my wishes and dreams and accomplishments and want to wear me as a skin suit.
Talking Shrimp is all new!
OK, not all new. I couldn’t change everything, on account of I hate change. Which makes me a web designer’s dream. (Dream being code for “nightmare.”)
Because every designer loves to hear, “Can you refresh the logo but keep it the same?”
This was going to be a small job.
But we all know, there’s no such thing as a small job.
It’s why “We’ll just paint the place and move in” turns into “Take down ten of these walls and make the bedroom a kitchen and the kitchen a media room and the living room a magical pleasure den with a touch-sensitive secret batman wall that’s books on one side and the Chronicles of Narnia on the other.”
It’s why “Can you just make my eyes look a little more awake and not like I’m looking at an eclipse” turns into “WTF HAPPENED TO RENEE ZELLWEGER?”
(Side note: Yes, we’re still talking about her and let’s be real — the reason her plastic surgery hits a nerve is not because it makes her less relatable; it’s because it confirms that no, you can’t just change a few things you don’t like and look just like yourself, but hotter and younger. It confirms that plastic surgery has a long way to go and will not be ready anytime soon for those of us who pull our face skin back in the mirror and think, “if they just sewed my face like this…perfection!”)
Where was I? Oh yeah. My new site.
1) It’s now “responsive,” or mobile-friendly. But I’d rather you viewed it on a full screen, or jumbotron if you have one. The homepage changes, and you can watch it for hours. Or minutes.
2) There might still be a few kinks. I’m tweaking it. But if you see anything embarrassing, like the wrong spelling of your/you’re, please let me know! That’s like walking around with my skirt tucked into my tights, which happened once at work in 1992 and it was like, 15 minutes before anyone told me. Be a pal.
3) My web designer/ developer, Michelle Martello of Minima Designs, is a genius. They call her “Smartello,” only because it has a nicer ring to it than “Geniustello.” Basically, she’s a unicorn: the rare, magical creature who can design AND code. I found her leaping happily in the woods and hired her. She’s not just a unicorn, but patient as Job. That’s someone in the bible, which I haven’t read in a long time so I forget whether Job was a web designer/developer. Probably.
OK, that’s enough for now. The mayor and townsfolk are waiting for me to officiate the Talking Shrimp ribbon cutting.
So welcome to the grand opening. Come on in!
Discuss this site, home renovations, Renee Zellweger’s face, or whatever exciting thing you’ve got going on.
