It seems that I have offended the blogging goddess by way of some mysterious (at least to me) and inappropriate application of widget code semantics.
That is to say, bloggy has a boo-boo.
Aww, my poor little blog. I sincerely hope that you will be well soon.
In the meantime, let me spend a grossly inordinate amount of time tediously re-typing sections of code and praying that a generous internet spirit somewhere will take pity on us and bring the Wild Sparrow blog back to good health.
Dear Mighty Blogging Diety,
Please let my widgets load;
My images appear; and
My background margins recover in all their glory.
