rendered silent by my dummy computer (don't repeat Aunt Sissy)

Just this week, I was leaving a pithy little comment on a blog when my computer froze. After I rebooted, I noticed that instead of my typical msn heading, I was suddenly in some google screen. But it looked a little funny.

I guess someone had 'hijacked my url'. I say that with some borrowed confidence. I really don't know much about phishing, but I do know to call my husband when the Computer Hates Me.

We thought it was resolved, and it is better. But some blogs seem to no longer exist according to the Laptop Formerly Adored by Me. I click to comment and Blogger says no no no.

I still think you exist, no matter what this screen tells me. And I think you are pretty. I will comment again when the Internet Gods deem me worthy.

(Summer is officially here. I started the longest day of the year sneezing at 4:30 when I heard Greg having an asthma attack on his way out the door. Pollen much? Still, I can't complain. The sun is back and we have painting plans for Sunday. We will be ushered into the good home owners' circle. I hear there are dancing unicorns within the circle. Maybe moonbeams and lollies too. I can almost hear the applause.)

*My two year old nephew, Caden, has taken to the word 'dummy'. It is a handy word afterall. Sweet sweet boy, I get to say it - it comes with my mortgage and is better than the other choice words that come to mind. But you. Don't say it. You'll get me busted with your Mama.

So sorry about the dummy computer. That is a little scary -that phishing thing.

Glad summer is there! We're in way over our heads...probably 108 or so today...

I said S.O.B. in its entirety once, just that single time as honey mustard colored baby waste shot out past diaper, onesie and Baby Bjorn and made a hot nasty trail down my leg. Briar retells the story with perfect inflection as she parrots my S.O.B. longform. Damnmit, there I go again.

Get well soon 'puter.

Oh yeurgh, how frustrating!

Of course, if you have less blogs to comment on, more time to enjoy life? Blessing in disguise?

well at least it's not "dumbass" right?

Stupid computer. I hope you get all the bugs resolved.

Good luck with the painting. I hope it's sunny and cool for you.

I love the book, Elbert's Bad Word, when it comes to this stuff. It's awesome.

I hope warm weather is now on it's way...

You will hear my primal scream if ever I lose computer access...

Glad you're back on track, bad words & all :)

May I gently suggest using Firefox instead of Explorer? When I switched to Firefox, all of my blog-related-crashes ceased.
