It's Gonna Take a lot to Drag Me Away From You

Am I the only person having troubles with blogger lately? (Oh my heavenly fuck, blogger now recognizes "blogger" as a word! AMAZING.)

I've been unable to post, leave comments and WE DON'T EVEN WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE FOUR HOURS I SPENT YESTERDAY TRYING TO UPLOAD MY NEW BANNER, which included lots of fists shaking in the air and proclamations of blogger being a cocksuckity cocksucker.

Ahem.

And bloglines doesn't seem to be working all that well for me either. Both of my feeds that I'm subscribed to haven't been showing my last two posts (yes, I'm subscribed to two of my feeds. What? You aren't subscribed to two of your feeds?). Which, of course, likely means it's not going to show this post and then I'm going to continue to suffer from High Comment Withdraw, side effects include less than 15 comments, constantly hitting the "refresh" button and feeling like a high school girl rejected for never being invited to a dance.

(And trust me, I know what that feels like. High school boys could never handle this.)

So, yeah. My life is exciting.

If you count cursing at the computer and wiping children's allergenic noses exciting. And watching tons of SpongeBob SquarePants. And drinking tea.

But hey! At least I finally scrapped yesterday after my six month sabbatical. So you all may very well be bored to death with oooohhhhing and aaahhhing over pages if my life doesn't get more exciting soon.

I'd ask you to dance :)
Me, I was always the last minute option. I actually had a guy show up at my house right before prom, in a tux, and ask me if I wanted to go.

Oh my goodness. Blogger sucks lately. I can't upload pix and I have to compose my post and slam it into the template via cut and paste or my "secret code" expires and won't refresh.

AAAAARGH!!!

Loving your every word, whether I comment or not!!

Blogger is the cocksuckityest cocksucker ever. But this post did appear on Bloglines, even though some of your other recent ones didn't (at least for me). Sigh.

But I am feeling liberated since the ILs left. Got any more sage...?

Emy said...

Bloglines didn't work for me yesterday... Turns out I had no internet connection.

If it makes you feel better I was cursing Microsoft Word 2007 yesterday. I don't know if I have ever felt so angry at a computer before...

beki said...

Well, if it makes you feel any better, this post showed up in my bloglines.

Stephanie said...

commenting to let you know that i would totally hang out with you at the dance..even if we didn't have dates! whatever...it's cool to go with friends! that way, we can dance with everyone! ;)
loves!!

You know me - I only lasted about 6 weeks with blogger before I switched to typepad. And it still gives me problems and won't link to me when I comment. Cocksuckity cocksuckers, indeed. (The next person who pisses me off in traffic is getting called that! :) )

And after the excitement of the greenhouse coming down, and with the anticipation of Saturday fun, no wonder today seems boring. But glad you got some srappin in.

LLA said...

Sorry that it was such an ordeal - but the results were worth it! I love the new banner!!!!!

And I've got a new favorite saying: cocksuckityest cocksucker. (I'm going to have to watch myself in traffic when Scheck's in the car, I can already tell...)

And just to emphasize the suckityness of Blogger? You would not believe how many tries it took before it would even let me see the "comments" window.

SF Blogger...

Love, love, love the banner.

It is even more wonderful to have the little pair of shoes in the corner.

Great job.

patrice said...

You installed your own Banner?! I'm impressed...I went groveling to Marsha (before she fell ill). I think it looks great! Colorful and exciting!!
Warmly,
Cocksuckityest cocksucker
(not a confession, mind you)

Ali said...

I'm kind of glad it isn't just me. I was beginning to get PPC (premenstrual persecution complex - you know, where everyone hates you and you have no real friends and they are all laughing about you behind your back).

Anyway, you showed up on my bloglines (but your last post didn't) and I love your banner.

And I finally got some photos to load via firefox. Yippee.

Angelina said...

OMG-you are sooo invited to the dance!

I feel like that all the time.

I don't even know what it feels like to routinely get fifteen comments.

Blogger sucks. It's been timing out on me as it has for BB.

oilclothjunkie said...

Lovin' the banner!

luckybeans said...

You get 15 comments in a day?

I hate you.


But I love the new banner.

What can I say? It's a toss-up.

lera said...

love your banner!

i've been having blogger woes this week, too! you are not alone.

heatherfeather said...

blogger vs. bloglines.

who sucks more? i dunno.

but their measure of suckiness is directly correlated to how much i can't live without them.

kirsty said...

Blogger and bloglines SUCK alright. I just got this post AND Mondays post for the first time. This seems to happen a lot. Bloglines posts these things a couple of days late :(

kirsty said...

BTW there is nothing cocksuckity about that cool banner.

Kathy said...

Your banner is freaking awesome! I'm jealous I didn't think of that first. :D

Dawn said...

Yeah I noticed. Your feed in bloglines has been sucky. I realized it hadn't updated in a month and finally just decided to go directly here. Love the new banner! And I'm not ignoring you... I got your email - I'll work on the directions for posting the pics tonight. :)

Chara Michele said...

I love the new banner!

I have still been getting your feed, although I don't use bloglines. I use Google Reader instead.

As far as blogger, I haven't been having any problems. Although I have read a lot of other people having issues with it. (Maybe I shouldn't say I am not having problems, I might jinx it!)

Cathy said...

The banner is terrific and blogger frequently sucks.

Chickenbells said...

I had to actually ask someone to take me to the prom because I figured no one else would, and I really wanted to go...sigh.

Be proud, at least you know how to customize your own banner, I can't for the life of me figure that one out!

Michelle said...

cocksuckity cocksucker - haven't used that one. I'll have to remember it.

And I totally screwed up some poor seniors prom when I was junior and went with him. I still feel guilt over it (and it's been a LOOONNGGG time since that dance - holy shit - 27 years!).

PamKittyMorning said...

Wow, 24 comments by the time I got here to say OHMYGOD THAT BANNER ROCKS. I totally love that. Very clever.

Happy Kleenex Season!

monica said...

holy moly... you should try some primrose oil. or Starflower oil which is the high strength stuff. It does make you calmer WITHOUT having to hit the pinot grigio at 3.30 in the afternoon!!

Love the banner. I still haven't worked out how to do it.

Liked the glasshouse action shot story!

Mia said...

"cocksuckity cocksucker" ???


::laughing my ass off::

Gina said...

15 comments, I would roll over and die if I got more than 15 comments (hell, 1 comment makes me blush!)

The banner is rockin. I caved for a typepad account so I could put a banner up without pulling a brain muscle.

I found you because I'm GF (Celiac) but stick around for your fabulous musical references and slapstick honesty. My blog is professional'ish so I can only be so honest... I also happen to have a ridiculous stash of scrapbooking product clogging my closet. I don't scrap. I worked at a scrap. manufacturer. If you leave me a comment (ah, bribery!) perhaps I'll send some loot your way. ;)

Mirre said...

You're not alone, baby!! I'm having the same problems with both Blogger and Bloglines!

Angel Jem said...

Toto; Africa! I did it, I finally recognised a song you used!! Oh my, I feel soooo proud! (and I am soooo sad!)

Bumbershootska said...

we're all arguing with Blogger these days... what a freakin' pain ;)
