LUE Blog Bits and Bobs

I will be writing a Sleeping with Bread post later tonight, but first I have a few odds and ends to tidy up.

I ran my first poll over the last week.  An astounding seven responses!  Who knew?  In answer to the question of how a blogger should respond to comments, it is a tie!  What a relief.  Since I get to be the tie breaker, I vote for replying in the comments.  Now I don't have to figure out how to get a skywriter to reply in all parts of the U.S. and some of Canada.  I don't think I have the budget for that.

Stay tuned for new, even more thrilling polls.

I am somewhat regretting my last post.  Do they have Blog Goggles?  Do you know that mail thing you can set up for gmail now?  When you try to send an email at times you designate, it gives you a sobriety test.  If you fail, it won't send the email.  I wasn't drunk when I wrote that post, but I should have known better than to post anything political so close to the election.  I had to delete one nasty, nasty anonymous comment... and well, it is just frustrating.  I wasn't trying to promote McCain or Obama and I don't want to have that conversation here... so I just should have said nothing.

I should have forced myself into that sensibility armor after all.

In completely unrelated news, all my word verifications that I have come across today are decodable.  By that, I mean I can "read" them. Granted, they are nonsense words, but still.  Isn't that wierd?  Here are the words:  Tableche, Evilis, Pesse, Polsan, Caila, Pines (that's an actual word!)  Is the universe sending me a message?  I don't know.

I think that is it.  I'm off to the real world now.  Like I said, I will be back late this evening with my bread post.  In the meantime, have a great day!

When it comes to politics, I curl up into the fetus position, plug my ears, and go "la, la, la, la, la, la..." (I've been in this position for a LONG time now!) I'll still vote, but that's the only involvement I ever want.

I was made to marry a politically-apathetic Canadian.

Late night posting can be v. dangerous. Because what I think of as funny at 1 AM -- NOT funny at 1 PM. Who knew?

OH! I'm referring to my OWN blog in the above comment! Now that I'm re-reading my words, I think it may come across as a criticism of your last post -- which is NOT the case. Not at all! Oh, dear! This is awkward. Is it possible that I'm drunk right now?! It would explain my overuse of commas and exclamation points!!!!!!!!!

SB, I knew exactly what you meant. Maybe we also need Comment Googles... and along with overuse of ellipses, I love a few (hundred) exclamation points, too!

Oh and I check my emails once in a blue moon....

Just sayin'......

<-- will look forward to the SWB posting! :-)

Oh your last post was FINE. That nasty comment just proves the point you made in it!
Pshaw! I get so impatient with people that I start sounding like I'm 86.
