Its dark and rainy outside. The thunder rattles the monitor and the lightning flickrs (pun intended) through the window blinds.

I'm lamely posting about my laundry exploits, and Blogger just posts on its own. Three times. I didn't click anything, did nothing. In the middle of typing, just decided enough was enough and posted. I had to go in and delete two of the three posts.

Working on the remaining post, and the photos just vanish from the blog. Poof. Gone. I go back in and replace them, then the angry Blogger posts again on its own. Only twice this time.

I sprinkle holy water across the keyboard and fix it again.

"The power of blogs compels thee!! The power of blogs compels
thee!!"

The monitor turns completely around. Yahoo Messenger pops up and says horrible things about my mother. The computer desk shakes and violently jumps up and down.

Then, calm. The blog seems ok, is only listed once, and I think is grammatically correct (didn't push my luck spell-checking). Of course, this happens when I'm alone and its dark outside. I'll never fall asleep now.

Yeah, Blogger is getting to be real selective about which posts it thinks are worthy. I was subjected to the "boredom sensor" the other day. I went to post and it said "uh, I dont think so, too boring" and bam it disappeared. It also managed to wipe away any memory I had of said post just to make sure I couldnt attempt to re-post it.
and you sure know how to party like a rockstar,,,,, next time, come to my house and party with Kev. He only knows how to wash HIS clothes. Sounds like you had a full on "Free For All". You probably even mixed darks with whites just to be a rebel. I hope you dont have a headache from it all.

Hi Shaun. I loved your story about the mouse. It was hilarious. Except that I also feel sorry for the poor little thing. :( Your blog is funny. :)

I am convinced that Blogger is possessed. I have been able to post ALL DAY today with no problems. I heard on the nightly news that appox. 12,000 new bloggers enter the blog world PER day! These bitches are using up all our space. hehehe
