Et Tu?

I'm not sure what my thing is with Shakespeare lately. Hamlet really got me going, apparently. Or maybe I still can't shake the effects of sophomore English. Anyway, I really like this one. A lot.

At first, I thought the font choice might be too obvious--not subtle enough--but I went with it anyway. How could I not, considering its name? It's a free font, too, which is always nice.

By the way, I've just been wondering how long it normally takes for my blog to load for you guys. Is it annoyingly slow? I think the Twitter thing slows it down. That and the fact that I have like 500 billion posts on my home page. But I want people to be able to scroll down and see my stuff, instead of having to search deep within the archives for it, ya know?

I like it! I think the font is good too. Also, your page usually does take awhile to load for me, but I also don't have the best internet connection.

It loads pretty fast for me, but I do usually check it at work and BYU has pretty awesome internet.

I was wondering about the Shakespeare thing. And that font is gross. Just for the record. ;) I love this one, though, and I hate the play Julius Ceasar. (Quite frankly, I hate all Shakespearean tragedies, but that's a story for another day.)

I agree. It is a gross font. I don''t think I would ever use it for anything else!

(a) I love it. I loved it whenever we had to read Shakespeare in high school. I guess I was a geek.
(b) It only takes a few seconds to load... but we have really good internet service because Andy can't live without it.

I agree that it looks very cool. And I have to admit that I like the font. It's cool looking (the letters themselves, not necessarily the drops around them that I assume make it like it was written with blood or something). And the blog doesn't take long at all to load. At least not for me. The black background helps with that. I remember when you had a light background it always showed up first as black (and I always thought it looked cool with a black background), and then the background would kick in. Anyways. Super long comment. Sorry!

If I've cleared my cache,yes it's slow but that's because,my internet sucks.(Sleepy Weepy Perth!)

But I don't mind waiting for it to load. Your work is awesome and it's worth the wait :)
