I'm doomed with a boring layout until the end of my LJ days....
Why? There are so many layouts floating around LJ that it shoudl be easy to find something that suits you.

Hey! Have temp layout. Think I'll keep it for a while. Thanks for all your help on where to look for themes and such....
Just go grab a banner from some fandom you're in and spend a bit of time bumming around the layout comms ^.^ Something will come up. Hell, some people even have complete layouts for others and you just have to input everything on your end.
Yeah, I've been meaning to make a banner for a while. Just ... I never can seem to settle on one fandom ::Thwak!::

I finally found a theme I like - for now at least. Thanks for your advice! Things are settling down--hopefully I'll actually write something soon?
