Call for Donuts

Well, thanks to Fairy Hedgehog and The Man With the Beard I now have donuts on my blog. Anyone out there having trouble reading it? It didn't seem to want to let me change the default colour of the text- the template wants it white, and while some templates let you change, this one didn't. So the background is Puce. We love puce, don't we? Yes, I can hear you nodding.

(ok, update: I did figure out how to change the text colour (why do they list that in a different place for every template? silly.) but I'm kind of getting used to the puce. But seriously, is anyone finding it hard on the eyes?)

Anyway, I was wondering if any of you out there have access to large numbers of beautifully decorated donuts and would be willing to take a photograph of them. I nicked this photograph from somewhere on the web as a temporary measure, and it will probably be autumn before I get to donut-land. Anybody good at photography?

Of course, if you'd just like to send me a couple dozen by express mail, I could take the pics myself, save you the trouble...

Oh wow, that's gorgeous! And I didn't do anything!

I prefer dark on white text, but this is some of the more readable white text I've seen.

I'm afraid I don't do donuts. Now if it was chocolate...

I'm good with the white. Puce? Much more eye relaxing than I would've thought.

Sorry - no donuts handy.

I shall gain a pound every time I visit, then hopefully challenge some heavyweight boxer to a contest.

PS I saw thisand thought of you!

Puce is pink? I always thought it was green! Well, sorta khaki with green tints.

I wish there were nice donuts in Spain. *sigh*

FHH- you did too do something. You planted the seed in the MWB's brain and IF it has anything to do with computers, he becomes a terrier after that plantation, and let's nothing go, and now I have my donuts, and I thank you :)

Sarah- Yeah, I kind of like the puce too, but I agree with FHH that dark on white is usually easier... next time I'm barking bored I'll fiddle with it. Please, everyone let me know if it gets annoying before that.

Whirlo- You could opt for more exercise; you could study karate and get better!

FHH again- yes, that's me. If DD would subsidise me I would let them.

Sylvia- It's a mystery, isn't it? I just think, what's not to like? How can Europe import effing McDonald's dead cow innard burger all over the effing place and not donuts? It makes no sense. Feel free to post conspiracy theories.
