SAME OLD CRAP, SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FONT

THE BLOGGING WORLD WAS OBLIVIOUS YESTERDAY WHEN MRS NOTWAVING, CEO OF PIFFLE SOLUTIONS PROVIDER NOT WAVING BUT IRONING, ANNOUNCED THE SITE’S RELAUNCH.
ADDRESSING THE ORNAMENTS IN HER LIVING ROOM, MRS NOTWAVING DECLARED HER INTENTION TO REVAMP THE SITE BY SUBSTITUTING HER USUAL UPPER AND LOWER-CASE FONT FOR THE PUNCHIER LOOK OF CAPITALS.
‘THIS TYPEFACE INTERCHANGE WILL INTRODUCE READERS TO A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF DRIVEL,’ SHE EXPLAINED. ‘EXCEPT THAT THIS TIME, THEY’LL BE ABLE TO SEE IT ALL IN BIG LETTERS.’
NWBI CEASED PUBLISHING IN NOVEMBER LAST YEAR AFTER INCREASED COMPETITION FROM DAYTIME SHOWINGS OF ‘BRITAIN’S NEXT TOP MODEL’. NONETHELESS, MRS NOTWAVING IS BULLISH ABOUT THE SITE’S RETURN.
‘IF YOU THINK IT WAS SHIT BEFORE, YOU HAVEN’T SEEN ANYTHING YET,’ SHE PROMISES.
‘CONTENT-WISE, I’M REALLY GOING TO BE REALLY PUSHING THE ENVELOPE. I’M ALSO GOING TO BE SHOVING THE ENVELOPE, WAVING THE ENVELOPE AROUND IN THE AIR, AND FANNYING AROUND WITH THE SELLOTAPE DISPENSER. IT’S AN EXCITING TIME.’

    You’re back! HOOOZAH! x

  2. NOW I CAN READ YOUR BLOG WITHOUT MY GLASSES. WELCOME HOME!

  3. notwavingbutironing

    Thank you, ladies! I’ve missed you x

  4. Welll where the hell have you been? (Say that like a mother to her recalcitrant offspring who has stayed out all night). So lovely to see you back again AND IN BIG LETTERS. You’ve missed all the hulabaloo on my blog so you won’t even know I now blog under a different name (but I’m the one that’s on top of your ‘Me Likey’ list.) Can’t wait to catch up on all your drivel x

  5. ARE YOU SHOUTING AT US? …… My eyes aren’t great but the ears are ok at the minute.
    WELCOME BACK!!!!!

  6. BUT WILL THERE BE ANY BLUE SKY THINKING? I’M NOT PREPARED TO REENGAGE WITH THE ENVELOPE PUSHING UNLESS I CAN BE ASSURED OF BLUE SKY THINKING. POSSIBLY I CAN BE PERSUADED IF YOU DABBLE IN THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. THE ENVELOPE BOX.

    Welcome back. Thank feck. Where the hell have you been? Taken hostage by a range of plastic, abused dolls?

  7. It’s a bloody wonder I didn’t take you off my google reader thingy some time ago but I just thought you’d probably come back, like a very hot vegetable curry.
    Your new font is cack, by the way.

  8. I don’t like it, NWBI – I always get a little bit offended by shouty capitals, like I’ve done something to warrant capitalisation…. I blame my parents, they were always talking to me in capitals – but a very BIG welcome back!

  9. Hurrah! Rejoicings in blog world! (OK my world which is admittedly limited)

  10. joe bloggs

    I for one LIKE the new font, as I am hard of hearing it really helps!

  11. Hurrah! Rejoicings in blog world! (Well in my blog world anyway which is admittedly limited).
    Hope you’re going to make us laugh. No pressure.

  12. HOORAY!!! Where the HELL have you been… for God’s sake, blogging isn’t just a HOBBY. It’s a RELIGION.
    Honestly.
    (pleased you’re back!!) xx

  13. Twosmallaubergines

    Ironing is back!
    And in SHOUTY CAPITALS
    I can read sans specs

    Huzzah!

  14. Woohoo!!!! (really great to see you back – you’ve been ever so unboldtypeface in my reader list)

  15. There was me worrying that I’d probably run you over in Tun Wells while I was changing a CD.

    Have you morphed into OWEN MEANY? Or DEATH? Or me when I see a mouse?

    You see you’re not the only one who can spill drivel without embarrassment.

    Thank you
    for such a warm welcome back! The full story of my ‘sabbatical’ will be revealed in my next post. You’re agog now, eh?
    Now I have seven months’ worth of blog-reading to catch up on. Britain’s Top Model will have to wait….
    xxx

  17. YEEEY. Work will be stashed in cupboards, irining will wait while we read IN BIG LETTERS

  18. I almost took you off my crowded google reader but decided to see if you came back as I’ve had one or two blogging breaks myself and would have sobbed into my keyboard if anyone had unfollowed me! I wondered if you had accidentally kept your capitals lock on and then decided to pretend that you had meant to type in capitals all along?! Still no need for reading glasses now! (for me or you)

  19. Blighty

    Oh my god you are BACK! This is BRILLIANT NEWS! Go steady with the sellotape dispenser xxx

  20. Hoorah indeed! I thought you’d been sectioned….

  21. Tattie weasle

    You’re back…thank heavens some sense to the blogging world!
