Laurie’s Prize

Since we were caught off-guard with our little Personal Ad contest today, we didn’t have the prize quite ready yet for LaurieS when she won, like, 20 milliseconds after we posted the contest. But behold, the glory of our prize!

Marchioness Hottepantes

Each winner every week will have the honor of receving a different one of these puppies. That’s right: different title, different O-face, different schmancy font, different background colors (probably) and if we feel really sassy, we’ll start adding even more PhotoShop effects! Shit, we might even add a lens flare, or one of those twinkly-star effects. There’s no limit to how tacky this can become. And if you win multiple times—why, think of the glorious collection you can amass. It’ll be like Pokemon, only with bigger, bouncier knockers!

Only the winner has the right to display this on her webpage. Any pretenders to the title will be set upon by vicious attack ferrets. Special requests (such as making a button that’ll fit on a sidebar, or there’s an O-face you really, REALLY love that you want us to use) will be happilly accomodated.

I know, y’all are just wetting your pants in anticipation for next week’s contest, aren’t you?

EDIT: OK, including the HTML code for the picture just completely breaks the CSS layout for some reason. I’m not sure if there’s a flaw in our template, or if it’s some kind of browser bug. Anyway, it’s really annoying. LaurieS, check the comments for the contest, I’ll post the code there instead.


General Bitching...

    Dear Smarties

    This isn’t about the actual topic, but I just wanted to direct you to a cover that’s absolutely priceless! If you have the April 2005 edition of RT Bookclub, go to page 7 and you’ll know exactly which one I mean… ;-)

    ps. I just adore this blog!!!!

    Candy – did you try putting it in a blockquote? Or creating a “code” style in the stylesheet?

    Hey Sarah,

    There’s already a code style in the stylesheet. If you look at the entry I made about codpieces (tastefully entitled “Ballsac: My Favorite Author”) I used it there. I noticed that the exact same kind of CSS breakage happened to Maili’s blog when she posted some code to help someone who had a question about uploading pictures.

    OK, confirmed: It’s an Internet Explorer 6 bug. If you view Maili’s entry in IE the CSS layout is fugged, but if you view it in Opera it’s not fugged. Stupid fucking Internet Explorer.

    Wendy: I don’t subscribe to any magazines, waah! DO tell us which book caught your eye… by e-mail, if necessary. We have this week’s hapless victim lined up, but fresh cannon-fodder is, of course, always welcome.

    Christ. I just had a look at the page through IE [I’m *mmrrowwl* Firefox]. It really looks AWFUL! Why didn’t you say? Why didn’t anyone tell me? *gibberish* It’s just as bad as leaving the Ladies, not realising that the back of my skirt is accidentally stuck in back of my knickers and no one in the restaurant says anything. Instead, they stare.

    Eeek, I’m sorry, Maili! I totally should’ve dropped you a line to let you know the CSS layout was messed up. To tell you the truth, I noticed it was weird the first time I saw the page, but didn’t really think too much of it since I go to your site to read what you have to say, not look at the design—until the same damn thing happened to me. Then of course it bugged me all to shit, and I remembered I’d seen something similar happen to you.

    I don’t know if there’s a workaround for it. I haven’t bothered to look, but I seriously doubt it, given how spottily IE conforms to web standards.
