Black Bart obviously has much internal conflict and shifting personality since he frequently messes with avatar (at least he used to, I don't know how much of that he does now.)

I belive I have mentioned demon kitty on the epic roleplaying battle thread, but that was quite some time ago.
I think three different pictures went into creating this, it's blurry because one of those pictures was blurry and I had to make this stuff match.

Wll done, ADoS!

Just one minor criticism; The contrast between the red links and the blue background means that I cannot read what they say… :bummer:

What color stands out well on blue? Should I make them yellow? I'll try it.

What about white? I just tested my main page (not uploaded yet) with black text and white hyperlinks, and it seems easy enough to read.

It's not a white background with dark text, though. Its a mid-brightness background with black text and white hyperlinks. I just uploaded the new versions of my pages. How is it?

The following is a true story. I started working on this while I was walking my dog the other day. I may have to work on the rhythm of this, but here the first draft.


Ode To A Lonely Sandwich

While I was walking on the round
I did discover upon my way
A lonely sandwich on the ground
Looking as if it was dropped that day

Oh lonely sandwich on the ground
How did you wind up upon this place?
You surely were tasty before found
Did you get dropped in disgrace?

Days went by, two, three then four
And the sandwich did stay
How is it that you have been upon the floor
Yet still look like you were dropped yesterday?

Oh lonely sandwich on the ground
There must be something wrong
How is it that ants have not found
And gathered upon you in a throng

Weeks now stretched from one to two
And yet the sandwich did not move
Your salami looks as good as new
The preservatives have nothing more to prove

Oh lonely sandwich on the ground
It’s been over a month before
I’ve noticed you are no longer around
The lonely sandwich is no more
