Sorry, Mom – I Tried

You guys are going to hate me.  Seriously.

I tried - for my Mom's sake I think more than anything.  No, no; that sounds like I'm putting it on her and it was fully my decision.  I was trying to "clean up" the blog - less cursing, more positive crap, and all of that (I thought) coincided with a more sophisticated and "pretty" blog layout and domain name/blog title.  I was wrong.  I have tried - oh gods I have tried - to fall in love with this layout and this name (La Vie Sans Limites); I cannot.

Don't get me wrong; this is a gorgeous layout; one of the prettiest I've ever seen or used.  And the name - which is French for "A Life Without Limits" - describes me and "works" in it's own way.  True, too, it got rid of that rather juvenile name "Sunshine and Farts" (which, in case you haven't figured out, my mother hated).  I was really trying to branch out and embrace a new, more positive, less cynical worldview and writing style.

Yet the more I looked at La Vie Sans Limites, the more I longed for Sunshine and Farts, and the more I gazed upon the lovely Forever Autumn layout theme, the more I pined for my carefully customized Sweetness theme.

When I bitch and gripe on the pretty blog with the sophisticated name, I feel...sort of malapropos.  It doesn't feel right.

Another point to bring up.  What's a more memorable blog title?  La Vie Sans Limites or Sunshine & Farts; come on, it's no contest.  My sister told me she has to keep laviesanslimites.com bookmarked to get to it - whereas she could always just type in sunshineandfarts.com; she remembered that.  And isn't that the goal of every blogger - to have a memorable name/domain name so that people can easily find and remember you?  Touche.

So here it is...I'm back.  I'm sorry, Mom; I did try.  But let's face it - I'm more a Sunshine and Farty kind of gal than a ooh-la-la Frenchy one.  To me, Sunshine & Farts sort of represtend my entire life - it's ups and downs, its stinky moments and its laughable ones; the joys and the sorrows, the highs and lows.  I realize that's a lot of emphasis to put on such a phrase, but there it is.

It's also a quote directly from one of the absolutely most amazing shows on television today; one that pinballs from being devishly cleverly cynical to embracing brilliantly hilarious buffoonery - Family Guy.  I'm not ashamed to admit I own every single season on DVD, as well as Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, and the special edition DVD-set of Blue Harvest.

The quote comes from Stewie Griffin in a scene where he is being interviewed by Bill Cosby for a spin-off on Kids Say the Darndest Things.

Bill Cosby: Stewie, what do you think candy is made out of?
Stewie Griffin: Sunshine and farts! What the hell kind of question is that?!

I laughed my ass off when I heard it and, later, thought it was just a hilarious and fun name that - as I said above - sort of represented me and this wild, wacky, often uconventional blog.

So there it is.  Hopefully this is the last change.  sunshineandfarts.com still works, always has - so you may resort back to that when ready.  The lavissanlimites.com will work 'til it expires sometime next year.

I apologize, but it had to be done.

My personal honest apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.

All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you possibly can repair in case you werent too busy searching for attention.

    Thanks for the interesting things you have unveiled in your blog post. One thing I'd prefer to comment on is that FSBO relationships are built eventually. By presenting yourself to the owners the first weekend break their FSBO is definitely announced, prior to a masses begin calling on Thursday, you develop a good relationship. By mailing them equipment, educational components, free reports, and forms, you become a great ally. By using a personal fascination with them and their predicament, you generate a solid connection that, oftentimes, pays off in the event the owners decide to go with an adviser they know in addition to trust -- preferably you actually.
