Quick critic for typeface choices on simple blog!

Hello! I'm not a big fonthead, but I know enough to know that using more than a few fonts on a single web page is quite risky.

I did this design in one night with no particular idea in mind from the start, and I was quite satisfied with the result. However, I'm using a weird mix of fonts, so I'd like to know if anyone would have a strong opinion on my choices!

I'm using Lucida Sans Unicode uppercase for headers and logotype, Garamond for most content and navigation, and here is where I doubt my design skills: I'm mixing with small-caps Trebuchet MS (READ MORE links and search bar) and Georgia for the dates.

Although doing that is something I tend to avoid, I think the result is pretty OK... what do you think?
