Things that DON'T amuse me

1. Typing up an entire blog entry of things that amuse me, only to type “b” which for some :censor: makes my :censor: cursor jump, so when I hit the :censor: backspace key, I lost the whole :censor: thing.

2. Contemplating recreating the entire entry because things that DON’T amuse me aren’t nearly as funny as things that do.

3. An author who is viciously bashing a bestselling author along with her own peers under the veil of anonymous blogging. A very, very thin veil. As in…a shitload of people know who she is. (Absolutely no breadcrumbs. Sorry.)

4. “Lost”. They’ve totally wrecked this show. I personally think it jumped the shark when they blew the hatch, but this season is ridiculous. How do they expect their viewing audience to follow and care about 234,345 different castaways. It’s too scattered, now. Too fragmented and really ridiculous in parts. At least the polar bear’s back, and the black cloud.

OMG. It just happened again!

*rips :censor: “b” off :censor: keyboard*

I’m going to @ed. Starting tomorrow I’m going to try to refocus on writing here on the @log instead of ram@ling on like a crazy woman like I’ve @een doing.

    Hey, Microsoft actually has a program that’s not evil for blogging. You write on your desktop then upload to your blog. Never lose an entry again. I’ve lost many WordPress entries due to glitches (like hitting the button to post and having it time out…whole entry, gone forever). My dh has been using it and I’m about to switch over. Will send you the link to download if you’re interested.

    I don’t need breadcrumbs, thank you. I already know who you’re talking about. :devil:

    And I’m with you on LOST. I couldn’t even watch it last night. I’m disgusted.

    I’d like that link, Charli :)

    And I don’t need breadcrumbs either. You know I’m right there with you on that one.

    The rest of you should just give up on LOST and watch Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights instead. Or start watching Battlestar Galactica. Or Shark (oooh, it’s a good show!)

    It’s the :censor: b key? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH.

    Been there, done that, cursed like a bloody sailor only to have Jaci so nicely say… well, you should have typed it in word, then just copied and pasted. Then you’d still have it. (Like we wanna hear that when all our creativity just got flushed….)

    Oh, and must go see… I know where the invisible breadcrumbs lead.

    I haven’t been blog hopping so once again, invisible bread crumbs don’t work for me. :(

    I am sending you cyber hugs because it sounds like you need them.

    My guy said to me last night that we should just stop watching LOST and I smirked. We’re pissed at it, but we’ll still watch it cuz now I have to see if Jack trusts Julia. But yeah, did we really need all that about Echo? *sighs*

    Socking is bad enough… socking badly is just beyond wrong.

    Okay, is this bread-crumbless author (and you know this is driving me nuts, since I have no clue), also bashing her peers. or are her peers joining in on the bash-fest?

    Couldn’t quite tell. Not that it makes any difference. :cheesy:

    I did that a few days ago, but I couldn’t figure out what I’d done to kill most of the entry. At least now I know what causes it. Isn’t that so very annoying?
