Pictures Debuting to Your Right

I'm tinkering a bit with my template. You'll find that I've added some fun pics to the right-hand column. It helps add some personality to this otherwise quite minimal site . . . but I know it's still nowhere near the gorgeous design my good friend Kirsten's got going on her blog.

In related news, I'm thinking of changing the look here altogether. Those of you on Blogger know that after a while, you've seen all the templates there are to be seen on Blogger's template site . . . not to mention that everyone else already claimed the great designs and you don't want to be a copy-cat! However, I think we need some more color and variety over here. Agreed? Any suggestions?
