The Deed is Done

I have finally done it.

I've taken my destiny into my hands.

I've bitten the bullet.

I've done what needed to be done.

I've switched to the new version of Blogger - the one where your template is "click and drag" rather than "one hundred million lines of html code" - losing my whole blogroll on the way.*

So I bit the bullet again (hoping the damn thing wouldn't explode in my mouth), and re-entered my blogroll.

This is heavy duty stuff for a techno-challenged froggy Jazzer who doesn't even own a microwave. I faced technology. And won! Well, maybe not exactly won, but at least I prevailed. Had I won, all traces of technology, except those that benefit me directly, would have been wiped from the face of the earth. Exit cell phones, iPods and Blackberries. I'm evil that way.

All this because I wanted that damn thinking bloggy idiot thing in my sidebar. How fuckin' stupid is that? I'm that flattered to have been chosen. Someone shoot me now please. Anyone. Bang. It's easy. If you're arrested, say you had no choice, show them my blog and I guarantee they'll set you free.

More to the point however, I totally forgot what I was going to blog about.

I've conquered a phobia but lost my mind.

* If you can't find yourself in there anymore, please let me know. I think I got everyone back up, but maybe not.

Poor lil sister. Lost it huh? Oh well at least you now realize what the rest of us have realized for quite some time... ;o)
As for the transfer, do you mean that you hadn't changed yet. I bet google inc. was just sitting there desperately waiting for you, the last die hard, to move so that they could shut down the old system and stop losing money. ;o) Anyhow welcome to the 21st century.

Actually losing your mind is GOOD. We WANT to lose your minds. They get us in too much trouble!

You may have lost your mind, but you can always buy more marbles.

BB - well it's done now! I'm on my way to becoming the ubergeek.

Dan - A thinking blogger without a mind. Interesting thought

Ticknart - Where do I get those again?

Ah, you paint yourself as a Luddite, but honey, you'll notice there's no blogroll (or that award banner thingy, which I want on mine, too!) on my site. There's a reason for that.

You're my technological heroine.

Woohoo! Congratulations on the upgrade. I'm always the last to adopt any new technology too. Except for this one. I think you were the last.

Found my way here through Ian's blog. I've wretled repeatedly with Blogger and html. I went through a similar thing when I was trying to figure out how to escape the blogroll widget so I could make them all pop-out links. Why I feel that is so critical I just couldn't say, but it mattered, dammit!

Jazz said...

Jocelyn - Well that's the first time I've ever been anybody's heroine.

Toast - ood????

Jill - Yep the last... again.

CSL - Pop out links? OH my
