I forgot how to change it back for a few weeks and now I have a myriad of rationalizations for the Ugly theme, including:

- It makes Hubski feel unique from other websites

- It is easier for me to read long paragraphs in this font (there is no proof of this)

- It exposes me as a web designer to different viable styles

- It humbles me as a web designer to the effect of getting used to things so I don't change shit all the time

- It makes me think I'm smarter because I associate mono-spaced fonts with coding which is still mystical to me because I don't code

- It feels delicious to be on the wrong side of history

- If you stare at the default sans-serif font for too long the default sans-serif font stares back at you

- Obviously someone who does Hubski has a sense of humor because they named it the Ugly style, I want them to know that I appreciate it and that their efforts didn't go unnoticed

- I just like it this way, gosh

All good reasons, but I have to ask, have you tried "Office?" It has beige. Beige.

I just switched to 'Office' from 'Dark' a couple of days ago. I have to say that I'm finding the beige to be vaguely comforting.

I just put on my logo'd polo shirt and khakis.

It does kinda look like you might be working on something.

I'll get back to you in a week about how I feel about this.
