Computers Are Our Friends And Other Stuff

So I go to log on and post to the blog when what appears? Blogger forces me to use the "new blogger" whether I want to or not. Fine. I switch to the new blogger. Then I can't post. Of course not! have a Mac and apparently that's almost outlawed. To post on my own blog, I have to download something, connect the dots and cross my cyber t's. I am SO NOT A COMPUTER person, but I download what I need and after an hour I try to post again. Nothing. Lots of colorful phrases fell off my tongue as I walked away from the computer before I hurled it out the window. After a couple of hours of watching taped shows form earlier this week, I felt pretty invincible and I decided to try again. After all, I don't want to post to the blog from work every single day. Obviously it worked this time. YAY! I guess I'm not a technology idiot like I thought. Well, not as much of one.

Work is work. 3 weeks until spring break, but who's counting? The middle schoolers had their Valentine's Dance last night. Oh what fun! My friend (another teacher who chaperoned) and I went out for margaritas after. Now that was worth it.

Still plugging away on the 100 words a day. Although I have a LOT of day job work to do that keeps haunting me (because I keep putting it off). Still, I've been ignoring it and playing. Tomorrow I'll do some work. Honest, boss.

Still no word from Romancing the Tome. The coordinator stated (when someone else asked) she's waiting on one judge. So it'll happen when it happens.

I'm starting to think Blogger is Evil!

Amen to that, Tori!

I was nervous about switching to the new blogger too. So far I haven't run into any problems, but we'll see.

Crossing my fingers for you re: the contest!

I didn't want to switch over to "the New Blogger" either. I have a couple Gmail accounts and I actually don't like them for various reasons (yeah, I know, everyone else in the world just LOOOOVES Gmail). But they forced me, just like everyone else, to switch over. Now I have to check my Gmail account occasionally. Grr.
