Twin Peaks: Snoqualmie

LJ Styles

Meh. I think everyone who's ever designed a web site has felt the "I just can't get it the way I want it" sensation.

I was tired of my old chocolate mint chip look on my LJ and wanted something with a bit more energy, but didn't want to lose all the customization I've done on it, with my communities and so forth. Sure, it's nothing fancy, HTML-wise, but it's time consuming to redo.

I tried Opal, one of the new S2 styles available to paid users, but past a certain point, it is a real pain in the arse to tweak beyond the basics of color and perhaps font.

I know it's not life-threatening, but once I get something I like, I tend to stay with it a while, so I prefer to get it just right. We'll see.

I'm at a stopping point at the moment . . .we're meeting a friend's GF for the first time tonight, so I really ought to quit this and go prepare for that. I just hate leaving it when it's not "just so."

Yeah, perfectionist much? I know, I know.

Addendum to style editing

Okay, I think I'm reasonably pleased with the new layout and color scheme of my LJ. [sarcasm]A fashionably fresh look, just in time for spring![/sarcasm] ;)

Now I'd like to figure out some sort of new user icon, 'cause the Snoqualmie waterfall, my current default, is tired.

Addendum: Made one just for fun in honor of Television Without Pity. I doubt it'll stay as my default, but it'll be appropriate for posts related to, well, television.

Still need a new default, though. :/
