I’m an eejit!

You know what an ‘eejit’ is, don’t you?  It’s Scottish slang for ‘idiot.’  Look it up in a dictionary and you’ll see my face next to the definition…

I was less than thrilled when facebook changed our profiles over to the timeline format;  I personally resisted until the last possible minute.  (I still don’t think I know my way around it yet, not fully.)   So you can imagine how I felt when they informed me that my *page* would soon be converted as well!  Super.

With a deep cleansing breath of resignation to the inevitable, I decided to make the best of it & have some fun at the same time…

And that’s when I posted on other Outlander bloggers’ facebook pages asking for help in choosing between two cover photos for the new timeline format on my facebook page www.facebook.com/OutlanderFan.  So many of you responded, I was so pleased and I’m happy to report that as of March 10th, 2012 ‘Scottish Thistle’ has the lead over ‘Dragonfly’ by almost 2 to 1!

There’s just a wee problem (Heh-heh, you’re going to love this part, this is great):  In my eagerness to share the pics that I presented to be voted on, I failed to take notice of their size.  When I went to preview the cover photos, I was informed by the facebook gods that the pics were “too small.”  Och, I thought (because it’s fun pretending to think with Jamie’s accent- you know you do it too) that’s no problem- I’ll just go back to the site where I made them & edit their size.  Too easy.  Well, guess what?  The pics enlarged alright, but were blurry.  Verra blurry, indeed…  I feel like such an EEJIT!

And so, I formally apologize to everyone who kindly took time out of their day to aid me in my quest for the perfect cover photo.  Because I have to scrap the ‘Highland Thistle’ & ‘Dragonfly’ pics and start from scratch with a new one.  I willna ask for help this time, dinna be worrit.  Heed my mistake Outlander fans & spare yerself the embarrassment!  Aye, I’ve learned my lesson…
