Why yes, I may be just a *tad* addicted.....

Considering I really didn't have anything to post (and still don't - what can I say, I lead a pretty boring life) I was utterly crushed when I woke up yesterday morning to discover that Blogger wasn't working.  Despite my desperate tweets -


And just went about my business until evening.  As you can see from that last tweet, I came home to find Blogger still broken.....then things began to spiral out of control.  As witnessed by the next set of tweets....



















By then, I began to lose it - just a little.

Then when I woke up and discovered that it was STILL down.






I began to grieve.  And plan Blogger's funeral.  And tried to decide what dish I should have Hubby make for the wake.

And? Despite myself, I began to think that maybe....just maybe.....I should create a FaceBook page just for my blogging friends.  (I know, I lost my mind for a bit there - but the thought is still there in the back of my head.....you know, as a "just in case" scenario).

Then, lo and behold, I saw THIS tweet this afternoon....


And all was right with my world again.

  1. t's scary how addicted we all are to blogger. I could not BELIEVE it when I got up this morning to find it was still down. Thank God it's back up...

  2. I daresay that if it had went on until tomorrow we would have been seeing live footage of you on CNN...and not in a good way!

  4. It's still not completely fixed, but at least it's working. Everyone's posts are out of order, comments still missing, and I've still had some trouble leaving comments.

  5. I was on vacation, so it was only your tweets coming across my phone to let me know that my favorite addiction was down. By the time I got home, all was well/

  6. I was going insane Thursday night and Friday. My page came back up (though missing posts and formatted funky) and I ended up redoing a ton of stuff. I felt helpless because I didn't have access to my dashboard and everyone else's blogs though. It was as bad as being cut off from facebook--maybe worse.

    Cheers!

  7. As we've already talked about, it WAS SO ME that mended it, with my 'look'. You know the one only us Mums can give and voila, 7 mins later it came back. I'm scary me!

  8. I love that you thanked Blogger for giving you murderous thoughts. I am not on Blogger and I have those same thoughts. I wish I had a platform to blame. :)

  16. OMG Gigi,and I thought I was an addict! I'm laughing hysterically, you are too cute! BTW, that whole crash made me turn to Wordpress. I should be going through "The Change" by weekend! I honestly don't think I could survive another experience like that one.

  17. I don't know. I was thrilled to find Blogger down. It even said it was down, so I knew this time it wasn't me. I can't change a pixel on my template without the whole thing blowing up (audibly, and from across town) but this time, this one precious time, I knew it was nothing I did, nothing I said. And I relaxed and waited for it to come back to me, all sniveling and apologetic.

I generally respond to comments via email...if your blog/id is not tied to your email, I will attempt to respond here...but I would strongly suggest that you make your email available if you want to continue the conversation.

Unfortunately, for some reason people with Yahoo emails are receiving bounce-backs. Your comment will be published but I won't be notified; but I will respond once I realize you've left a comment.
