*whomps bloglines*

What the heck? Why aren’t my feeds updating? Why am I not being notified of new posts? What’s going on?? I originally thought it was just blogger blogs, but it’s not really true… since that day blogger went down last week (or whatever.. I couldn’t log in or get to ANY blogger blogs) they haven’t been updating on bloglines. Well, except for two. And then I have one livejournal one that’s not updating either.

I cannot live like this you know. I need to know when people post things so I can look at them right away!!! It helps break up my day from all that work crap I am expected to do.

*kicks bloglines* Start updating already! I have already missed a weekend’s worth of posts on many blogs because I didn’t know they were updated!!! Grrrrr! Argh!

**EDIT** Good heavens!! I missed like a bajillion posts from monkey!! I thought she was rather quiet all weekend. GAH! Stupid bloglines!!!

busy busy busy

No time to really write anything… just popping in to make a few notes. Today started out with a bang at work and I have a ton of stuff to do. I didn’t sleep at all last night so it’s going to be a tough day… only right now I think I have my 2nd wind because I feel all bright eyed and awake. I’ll crash by lunch I am sure.

My darling hubbyHead got my bookmarks back. Luckily there were backup files and he just replaced the new files with the old. Stupid Firefox. *glare* Also all my plugins were screwey I couldn’t get anything to work. It told me Quicktime wasn’t installed.. um.. yes, yes it is. And my Bloglines notifyer wasn’t working and now it is. Yay.

Weird though because this didn’t happen to my FF at work. I’ll stay happy about that though.

It’s going to be another loooooong 4-day week. I’ll be happy next week when everyone gets back from vacation.

OK.. time to try and organize two very important meetings with a ton o’ people and get some expense reports reconciled. Later peeps!

well that sucks

So my father-in-law is changing a light in the bathroom and accidentally shut off the power to the computer.. when it came back on and I started up Firefox (after turning the computer back on) ALL my bookmarks are GONE. Nothing. No Bookmark toolbar, no Firefox links, none of the bookmarks I had saved. All gone. Poof. Firefox started up like I had just installed it for the first freaking time. Only none of the standard FF bookmarks were there. It’s totally empty.

So not only have I lost blog bookmarks and reference bookmarks and so on, I have lost eveything. Blood freaking hell.

who put the bop in the bop-shoo-bop-shoo-bop?

Wow did I have horrible dreams last night. And I mean horrible. Just awful. And I don’t think it was all night, I think it was just in the early morning part (6:00 am – on). But wow. I feel awful right now because of them. There were so many things involved… the home where I grew up and my bedroom there and the upstairs bathroom and our summer place and people from there and people from elementaryschool/high school and my mother and my dogs (but I don’t know if they were my dogs now or my dog when I was a kid) and my surgery and the wounds I still have and my corset thing and clothes and just… weird. The day outside went from warm and sunny to cold and storming as I went inside to find some clothes to change into. Oh! And Chelsea was in it too, sort of. She was in BC but emailed me, or wrote me a letter or phoned me or something. Or maybe we were conversing telephathically? Dunno. It was so weird and I just had this bad feeling all the way through that was getting worse as the dream kept going.

Obviously something is bothering me, but I really don’t know what. Until my subconcsious gets a little less vague I’m not going to know. A lot of the things in my dream are typical stress-related things. Stress dreams always involve my childhood home and bedroom. At least there weren’t a billion spiders in the curtains like there normally are in those dreams. In fact I haven’t had a spider nightmare in a long time. Now watch me have one this weekend now that I have said that. heh.

I was going to write something about the issue of Us Weekly I was reading the other day and now I can’t remember what I was going to comment on. Huh. I’m getting old, I only thought about it about a half hour ago when I got up. Or the nightmares I had just made me more scatterbrained than I normally am. 🙂 Wish I could remember what I was going to comment on though. Darn, this is bugging me.

Guess I’ll go start my day… find something for brekky and then consider taking a shower. I know I’m taking one today, I’m just feeling lazy about doing it. 🙂 And when Shawn ever wakes up it’s off to the stores for some chores (hee! that ryhmes!!) and to go look at our stupid apartment to see if anything has been done and if we can ever move home!

for meritt

My sister and I used to sing this on long car trips, we were good at the two part harmony. It’s one of my fave songs from Guides (Girl Scouts)

my eyes are dim I cannot see
I have not brought my specs with me
I have not brought my specticles with me

There were eggs, eggs
with little furry legs
In the store (in the store)
