I've had a face lift. Well, the virtual "me" anyway. What say you to the new Fierce Beagle design? (If you're reading this on Facebook or in feed reader, click through to www.fiercebeagle.com to see the eye candy.)
Please be patient as we work out the kinks (and as I add content to my nav buttons), but I'd like to pause here for a quick ode.
Manning Leonard Krull. I discovered Manning through Stephanie Perkins, a YA writer whose blog template is amazing. Click here to check it out. It turns out the man behind the magic was Manning Leonard Krull, an American in Paris. For real. And as a pseudo francophile—did I mention that I minored in French?—I couldn't help but consider the fact that Manning lives in Paris evidence of good juju.
I don't want to sound infomercially—He has lots of skills! Watch how he animates AND writes code!—so instead I'll say that Manning is the kind of person I want to be friends with, and I hope one day to meet him. The fact that he put up with my highly unprofessional e-jokes (that's jokes through email, and yes I just made it up) and pretend-code jokes (such as [/singing]) without running for the hills is an added bonus.
Go on, patronize him. In the pecuniary sense, of course.
