…for now. Like you give a rat’s ass. I swear, I’ve fucking had it with Blogger, computers, whatever the hell is causing all the damn problems. I know, rant, rant and rant some more! Maybe it will make me feel better? Maybe PA is starting to lose it?

I think I need to have some food and lay down for a bit. Or something. We’ve got a big night ahead and I’m still trying to do stuff around the house. Not that people are coming over–we’re going out–but everything still needs to get done around here (because we are going out so much and there’s just not enough time.

I’m not feeling social.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a little cranky. This is the second day of my vacation and I’ve been going non-stop from first thing in the morning until into the evening. I mean, I’ve been busier on vacation than I normally am when I’m working.

That’s nuts.

So I was walking home from a nearby radiology lab this morning after getting my tummy x-rayed. This woman was walking two Basset Hounds and she was positively screaming at one of them for admittedly, nothing that I could see the poor pup doing wrong. Lady, if you yelled at me like that, I wouldn’t listen to you either.

Now, I’ll admit that Bassets aren’t the smartest set of the canine species. We had one growing up and even though she was an absolute doll, she was dumb. But for goodness sake, don’t yell at your pets!

Granted, I’ve yelled at mine to try and teach them. To get them to stop doing something that they’re not supposed to be doing but I don’t absolutely shriek like a possessed demon! I do it to get their attention. But just yelling and screaming in an abusive manner? That drives me crazy. And I always follow it up with a little “chat” about behaviour and what’s acceptable and what’s not. Animals are smart and you do need to train them but yelling uncontrollably (and hitting–DO NOT get me started…) is terrorizing the furry one who should be your best friend.

Is It Blogger Or Me?

Ah yes, the eternal question. I’m at home now (so I don’t have the super duper fancy computing abilities of my workplace) and I also installed (well reinstalled) the newer version of Firefox (and yes I am on a PC)

*hangs head*–I want a Mac…

but oh, holy hell(!) I am again not able or barely able to connect with anything (including my own blog), replete with broken images, links, error messages…if I am persistent, things seem to work eventually but it only appears to be with blogs. And not only with Blogger blogs; it seems WordPress blogs aren’t accessible either. By any route. Manually typing urls, search engines…

All other websites seem fine.


It’s the same with IE. Up, down, up down.

Piss off.

Okay, because my posts have been really long (well, not really long) and sort of all over, I’m going to try something new today. Just writing short little posts about individual subjects. You can tell me if that’s any more annoying than trying to keep track of my posts that seem to veer hither and yon.
