How's it going my gumdrops? Once again, Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday blogs were backburned. No, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns was NOT being neglected over this past weekend.
If anything, I have revised the main page and added the same features from the main page onto the Horror page. Because the Horror page was a page I added to the site, it looked quite naked. Trying to find a way to add a comments feature for you all to use is the main problem.
Speaking of site problems, I REALLY need the tech support at Webs to fix the tabs and to restore the unicorn favicon. While I was in the middle of updating the main page on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns, the page began scrolling up.
A former Xangan friend/subscriber of mine alerted me about the tabs, when I had him give his opinion about the site's current layout. He approves, for the most part. Now, I need to have the tabs re-adjusted and possibly have the unicorn favicon restored.
Also, that same Xangan friend wanted a better explanation about why the Horror page is restricted. Recently, I published a blog explaining about my Horror page restrictions.
Hopefully, you can see the link. I'm sure many of you have been wondering, WHEN there will be more Horror-related content on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.
As long as nothing or NO ONE throws a monkey wrench into my plans on or offline, there will be more Horror and possibly Supernatural content. In fact, there will be more very soon.
Something you all must know about me is that I will ALWAYS be morbid. I was morbid growing up as a little girl and I still am morbid as a woman. There's a lot that friends from high school, college, and cyber space don't know about me. Here's the burning question:
How morbid am I really?
When I was a little girl growing up, during the 1980's and early '90s, I was always very morbid and had a Goth personality. I don't remember "Goth" even being a word back then.
At the time, I did NOT need to wear anything morbid, scary, or "Goth" to constantly prove a point about my indentity. This cannot be said about today's Hipster Goths, who shop at Abercrombie and listen to Skrillex.
Growing up decades ago, I was always a Horror fan and was born during the era, when the Slasher Horror sub-genre was notorious. You may also recall, that I still have my talking Beetlejuice doll, dressed up as Lydia Deetz for Halloween in 2nd grade, and wore a grim reaper costume 20 years ago for Halloween.
However, I do not remember telling you all about, when I held funerals for my Barbie dolls. You know how dolls are. Their necks break AND their heads pop off very easily. Growing up, I always used my imagination with dolls. They would go to school, home, parties, church, weddings, concerts, AND funerals.
Remember the days of having case holders for audio tapes? My youngest aunt had a pastel pink tape holder, that went to her radio. I took her holder and used it as a coffin, whenever I held funerals for my Barbies.
I never threw those broken dolls away. Usually, I glued and/taped their heads and necks back together. It didn't matter if they were broken, I still played with them regardless.
The fact that, Mattel launched Monster High dolls, after I grew up and became an adult makes me feel a little cheated.
There was no such thing as Monster High dolls growing up, during the '80s and '90s. Had they existed when I was a little girl, I would've made my mother buy them for every birthday and Christmas I had.
How's THAT for morbid?
