Ch-Ch-Changes ... AGAIN?!

I woke up last week and realized I wasn't crazy about my blog name. Or the direction my blog was going.

The blog needed a facelift in more ways than one.
It needs to feel more ... "me". Because here's the honest truth: I'm not bright eyed and bushy tailed on a regularly basis. The blog name "A Cup of T" is cutesy.
It implies a lot of sunshine and daisies in my life. (Irony: gerber daisies are my favorite flower.)
I'll be the first to admit that it's not always the case. And when I started thinking about who I was: I always came back to the notion of strong when I need to be, and when I'm not? I self medicate with booze (usually Gabbiano Chianti).

Cool. So I had the mantra behind the blog, but what about the name?
And that's where fate stepped in.
I've been listening to a lot of the song "Flightless Bird" by Iron & Wine recently.
And I couldn't help but notice ... that the band name fit what I needed.
And then I thought: screw it. I'm rolling with it.

So no, perhaps I'm not original in terms of my blog name.
Perhaps this is some kind of copyright infringement. Or I'm violating some kind of Mark.
But it's pretty damn perfect ... so I'm rolling with it.


  1. Well... I LOVE the new design! The name is cool too~

  2. Love the new name. I think it "fits" you better :)

  3. I love the new design and I love Iron & wine.

  4. So are all your old posts gone now?

  5. The old posts should still be archived -- I'm not changing my URL or anything.
