I could kill blogger right now.  I had just finished a well crafted, time consuming post and when I hit's gone.  

I'm so mad.  The day is not starting out well.  

Please, someone cheer me up now.  Something funny, a commiserating story, anything....excuse me while I go scream and punch the air.  



  1. That is so frustrating. I think you should go punch dance your rage out like Kevin Bacon in Footloose or better yet like Andy Samburg in Hot Rod Not the best quality but the Hot Rod scene always makes me laugh.

  2. (Cyber-hugs)

    All my love,

  3. That was great. I've never seen Hot Rod...I'm laughing so mission accomplished.

  4. Aww, thanks luv.

  5. Had the same thing happen on blogger last week editing beatrice's birth story. All the changes I made disappeared and I swear I almost cried. Wasted time is so frustrating so I'm here to grrrrrr right along with you.
    Hope your day only improves from here!

  6. Glad you enjoyed it! Hot Rod is a pretty funny movie if you like those kinds of silly, stupid movies which I enjoy every now and then. It's always good for a laugh though!

  7. 6-year-old Jimmy, a precocious kid, always told everyone he wanted to be a doctor when he grew up. One day as Jimmy was running through his house playing, he ran into the corner of a table and hurt his eye. Being a little kid, Jimmy cried for a while but also kept saying, "Oh no, now I can never be a doctor when I grow up."

    Jimmy’s mom trying to reassure him told Jimmy that he could still be a doctor but Jimmy kept insisting that he couldn't.

    Finally she asked, "Why can't you be a doctor, Jimmy?"

    Holding one hand over his injured eye, Jimmy said, "Because now I will have to be a pirate!"

    (and I haven't posted an update on Blogger in ages, because it ate my post twice. Enough is enough, I was too frustrated to try again!)

  8. When I was little, my parents had a "Safety Meeting" with my brothers and I to teach us about strangers. My dad pretended to be a stranger, and we all took turns roll playing as he offered us candy and we ran off yelling, "NO! You are not my daddy!"

    All was well until it came to my youngest brother. Granted, he was only about 3 or 4 years old, but when he was asked if he would like any candy, he always replied, "Yes!"

    My mom got frustrated and said, "No, S, he's a stranger. What do you say?"

    Confused, S replied, "Please?"


    Sorry about your post. I hate stuff like that. I'm in constant fear that someday blogger will eat my blog in its entirety. I think I would not stop crying.

  9. I'm SO sorry for you! (It makes me think I should save my entire blog to another source--I would "die" if I lost what I've written!) I'm also really mad at Blogger, because I LOVE reading your thoughts! I feel totally gypped!

    I hope you miraculously find your post somehow. I'll start praying right now :0]

  10. That's the worst.

    I don't know if it makes you feel better, this is also the worst: a guy just came to my place to buy a nice lamp I had posted on craigslist, and I turned my back for one second to open the door and knocked the lamp over and it's in a million pieces. Embarrassing and unsellable :(

    Let's have happy days starting right now!

  11. Do you remember a time way back when and you dressed up as a school... Now that ought to make you smile, a little

  12. Thanks everyone--I feel the love. Good stories that made me smile.

    Steph--Holy cow! I DO remember that...I got to dress up as our school, Centennial Elementary. That's hilarious that you remember!

  13. To all of you with losin-my-blog-fear, I print ours out each year using It gets kinda spendy but you can make a pdf backup of your blog for about $10! so worth it!

  14. I work in a 6th grade class with kids, most of them run of the mill but a few with challenges. One is a boy with autism (who has serious anger issues and as a result few friends, but very bright) and a student with a syndrome that results in deafness, a visual impairment bordering on legally blind, some facial abnormalities, awkward social skills and small stature (but also very bright). Sitting in class one day, discussing Greek gods and goddesses he says to her "...but YOU are the Goddess of Adorableness." Giggle, coy smile, friends for life. I love my job.

  15. Linda P.8:34 AM

    I am so sorry, Miggy. I don't have a blog, but I have lost carefully constructed forum posts and comments before. Very frustrating.

    Oh, and here's a little story to share. We have a border collie puppy, several weeks old, and for the SECOND time in 3 days he had a bathroom accident (But was it really? Pretty sure it was quite intentional!!)on my son's bed at bedtime--y'know right at the time you really want to rip all the bedding off and leave a bare mattress. The mess was not all in one spot either. *sigh* OK, enough of the details. There are more, but I will spare you! My sweet hubby took care of it for me both times.

    Today (Thursday) is a new day for us both! Here's hoping we have a day free of messes of the blogging AND puppy kind! : D

  16. I hate blogger, too. All my posts from last Wednesday disappeared. Awesome.

    Hopefully this question won't make you more frustrated, but I'm wondering if you ever completed Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and if you saw positive results? I just started it a couple days ago and it's kicking my trash. I'm just wondering if real people see real results! :)
