I warned you, didn’t I? I told you I had Rotary Layout Syndrome, and did anybody listen? No. And now it’s happened again! Well, you’ve got your comeuppance! Here it is, yet another new theme! last one too plain. I get the feeling I’ve seen this theme on somebody else’s site (or maybe tumblr), so wanted to clarify that I’m not meaning to copy (sorry!)- if anything, you’re a subliminal trend setter.

I’ve got out my duster, my hoover, my army of helpful woodland animals from a collection of Disney films I’ve never watched and done a clear out on this here Demented Squirrel. Same old story. I was getting tired of the old premade layout, so I changed it so it can rock a fresh new look for the rest of the summer. I need no excuses for a random theme change, right?
