This is a fine mess ...

I was just sitting here, minding my own business, when I noticed that blogger was telling me to move.

"Go to Google. You'll like it there. It's nice. It's better over there."

"What? Google? Wha? Move. To. Google?"

"Oh, yeah," it cooed "it's still beta, but it's ooooh soooo much better."

So in my state of mindless anticipation, sitting here waiting for Ittybit to get out of bed and shuffle in to the warm cave of a livingroom, telling me one last time of monsters and bears gobbling up her cereal and forcing me to put her back to bed before I can make my way to my own, I toggled the necessary toggles and shipped this puppy on over to Google.

They said it would be more reliable.

The window that popped up told me it would take a few minutes.

"Go," it soothed. "We'll send you an e-mail when the move is completed."

"Don't worry," it whispered. "It will be better. You'll see."

Fuck all. Now Blogger is spamming my inbox with e-mails telling me I've moved.

So far, since I've been writting this little rant, I've gotten 15 ... no, make that 16.


I'm going to bed now before I find something else wrong with this picture. I hope when I wake up tomorrow things around here aren't so gloomy.

*** PS. Too late. Just found out the spell checker isn't working -- Gof held mu.

Ouch. Sorry it's such a pain in the butt. I vowed never to go beta when I heard of all the problems my friends were having, and I wonder if that's why my stupid template disappeared.

Good luck!

Good luck! If it doesn't work out the way you'd hoped, wordpress is pretty good. I haven't had any problems at all since switching from Blogger.

Of course, for your pictures and complete control over your template, you'd have to actually buy a domain name and subscription to a host for a wordpress blog.

Ooohh beta. Bad news. I refuse to make the move. I'm a chicken. *bawk bawk*

I don't even notice I'm in Beta anymore. Plus, they have made some things a heck of alot easier such as customizing your template.

ps: I love it when you swear :)

I see that Annabel is holding the paint brush with her left hand in the picture you linked to this post, is she leaning toward her right brain for creative activities?

I eat, draw and paint with my left hand than use my right for athletic activities. I’m not sure if I’m ambidextrous or just confused.

BTW... It is much harder for me to post a comment in Beta

Kcoz, I still don't know what Annabel is yet - lefty or righty. She's still exhibiting fairly divided ambidexterous behavior. Maybe with a touch more weight on the left... She also leads with her left a lot in kicking and other athletic activities.

And as for beta. I'm afraid to change my templates. (I'm soooo sick of the dots).
