Every time a new banner goes up, the previous one will move to this page. This is a little feature I like to call totally pointless. But, you know, maybe someday this might end up being really interesting. Like ages and ages from now. (OH OF COURSE IT WON'T.)

And The Porcupine theme is born!! Like this was a good idea. OH WHATEVER. Good ideas are for scientists.
Then I added this fancy and complicated Polaroid picture effect. Because the Cast of Characters page has pictures in frames and see how it ties in and blah blah blah I AM A PROFESSIONAL BLOGGER. Obviously.
Because dressing up a porcupine like Santa is stupid FUNNY!
New Years 2009
That's right! Now he's a party porcupine! Celebrating one whole upcoming year of this crap. Awesome.
Because the Superbowl was approaching, and my readers love football!! And by my readers love football I mean I seriously do not get it. Go Dodgers!
Valentine's Day 2009
Love is in the air! And on my blog! And all over The Porcupine! And oh dear god somebody please shoot me.
Presidents Day 2009
(President's Day? Presidents' Day? OH SERIOUSLY NO ONE KNOWS.) Happy Barack Obama Day, Um What-ers! Yes we can dress up The Porcupine like Uncle Sam and then have a giggle fit to ourselves because we're totally five.
Because The Porcupine is FUNNY HAHA like a clown and no he is not like Carrot top.
This banner was only up for a week, because that's the kind of blogger I am: the kind who's so busy making new banner after new banner after new banner that she forgets to do that slightly more important aspect of blogging that is commonly referred to as actually blogging.
Because all that empty space on the left was just so...empty. And because this blog has grown to be about so much more than just The Porcupine. HAHA! Of course this blog hasn't grown. What do I look like? A student of blogging? Someone who waters their blog? I am BUSY.
Because this banner matched the current new post in which my friends are like a fine-tuned medical staff always curing whatever ails me and blah blah blah HELLO one more excuse to Photoshop hats onto people heads.
Oh, like I need an excuse.
(AND AGAIN) April 2009 - mid-May 2009
Jared takes over the blog! And then proceeds to stay there for weeks on end as Um...What?? comes to a screeching halt and hangs on for a while just this side of death. For those of you who inquired as to whether or not my blog's near-death experience was Jared's fault ("Is he a curse or something?"), I can assure you all that it absolutely wasn't his fault. Or, in other words, of course it was.
Mid-May through mid-June 2009
To coincide with the post on Moses's passing, though he actually left us on May 1st.
Memorial Day 2009
Some bloggers put up whole entire posts on Memorial Day. I simply put up a banner. Because I care about helping you manage your time. You're welcome.
Because sending a cow for charity is totally controversial, but wearing one on your head is fashion.
This went with the post I published on a dream I had about the Enterprise NCC 1701-D. (NEVER MIND.) And I did look hot. I mean it's really kind of hard to argue it.
Maureen's Birthday 2009
Happy birthday, girlie! This went with an accompanying birthday-themed post. This is now TWO years of crap birthday posts I've done for Maureen. I am totally like an Ambassador for Hallmark.
My lovely friend Lori makes her debut on the blog! She would have debuted way sooner except that it took me this long to get her illo like I wanted it. Because the only thing I'm worse at than blogging is using Adobe Illustrator. (Unrelated: Jared is a petite flower.)
