Late posts today

Hey Peeps! I’ve been partyin’ it up in NYC, USA at the Webby Awards and it’s been a HOOT. I’ll be sure and post pics ASAP. Meanwhile, today and tomorrow’s posts are going to be short and sweet, People!
It doesn’t mean I love you any less.

Safari Issue – Follow Up

The Cute Labs have tested the new style sheet, and it appears to work in Safari now with the full three columns! If you’re using Safari, simply hit shift-[refresh button on browser] to see the amazing results!

SUPER HUGE PROPS to both Bunny Fiv3r and Mr. Nick O’ Neill (of Authentic Geek) for all their help making the three-column update happen.

What ARE they talking about?

GlossOK.  Hi.  This is Theo.  I seem to have been promoted.  W00T!!

So, here’s a sad truth:  While I am a geek, what I know about building web pages amounts to diddly x squat / bupkis (***ERROR: Division By Zero).  I’m hoping y’all will bear with me while I monkey around with TypePad’s “Compose a New Post” interface, here.  Anyhoo.

With the assistance of Meg and CuteOverload reader Anna Grace, I’ve compiled a rough table of the more common Cute-Isms that have cropped up in the posts & comments round these here parts.  I also threw in some less-common entries because, what the heck, sometimes you just gotta take liberties.  And it was a slow day at the office, and I was having fun.

Again: I’m not a WWWizard.  However, plenty of other folks here are, so the formatting just might improve quite a bit in the coming days.  But for now, without further ado, here they are, the fabulous entries of the shiny new CuteOverload Glossary! Yay!!!  [waves arms around a la Kermit the Frog as the curtain opens]

(I hope you’ve got a little reading time on your hands)

Please note that there should be a permanent link to the Glossary appearing soon in the left-hand margin, under “MORE! MORE! MORE!

Introducing: Caption Me!

At CuteLabs Headquarters, we have an overwhelming amount of fabulous photos. Some that simply scream for captions—captions only YOU can provide.

Introducing "Caption Me!" a sthilly new feature brought to you by the fine folks at Ning and CuteOverload. We’ve added it to our sidebar, and you can add it to the sidebar of your own page too, if you so desire. It’s free!

Holy crapulence! Sweet!

Question for you: the next T-Shirt

My co-worker almost always starts off talking to me by saying: "OK, question for you…" So I always have to get my hand on the buzzer to be ready to answer. Seriously, a question for you: the poll for the next T-shirt—what makes your top 5 list?

And, side note, there is only ONE WEEK LEFT to order the World Peace Hamster Shirt. and after that it will no longer be available! I’m like, totally not joking about this.

So, what’s your top five for the next T-shirt design? I’ll make a poll. I’m thinkin':

1. Chihuahua in a cup
2. Princess Pup
3. Pom Paws Up
4. Bunny in a dish (sans carrot)
5. Yin Yang kittens

and for old time’s sake, ’cause it rocks (but I know I’ll be outvoted)
1. "Get it on"

What do YOU want to see in the T-shirt vote?
