I give up

I totally just wrote a long post. It was all done, except for the pictures I was uploading. And then BOOM--bye, bye Explorer. It just disappeared. No error message or anything. GONE. I very calmly got up and walked into the next room just to give Explorer a chance to give me back my post and NOPE. Still gone. Thank you, IE. Thank you, Blogger. You suck.

It's 2:30 a.m. and I'm debating if I should recreate or just bag it and go to bed. It was basically me bitching, so you're not missing out on much, but there was a good story or two in there, too. CRAP! I hate when that happens.

OK. I can't. I have to try to go to bed, because I have to get up early so I can schlep to work in the ice and snow and try not to get myself killed in my very winter weather unfriendly car. But if I can't sleep, I will.

And that is why I don't have a cordless mouse or keyboard. They are fine for other people, but me?No, cause if I get frustrated and it is in my hand. I might as well yell FORE!!!!!. Cause that mouse will soon be a projectile object hurling through our computer room!

ARRRGGGGHHHH! That totally sucks!!! The world should not miss out on Swishytales, and Blogger needs to get a handle on the importance of your words to the rest of us!

BAD Blogger. BAD!

(Blogger has been sent to the naughty chair to think about what it did and prepare a suitable apology).

Hell, my IE did that, too! Thank God I wasn't really doing anything, just clicked on something, can't remember what.

But youre stories are always good, so maybe you can try again? And, how do you survive on so little sleep?

Awww, poor Swishy. How frustrating it is when one can't properly vent to one's fullest. We all feel your pain.

Swishy, anytime I start on a long post I immediately get out of blogger and start writing it in Word. I save the pictures for the last. Hope you can reinvent your vent! I love to hear it.

Okay- but now I want to know the story. Curses on you blogger.

We are alike ... in so many ways!That happens to me all the time. I just think I am electronically cursed.
That being said, now that I have read this, I feel like a real heel for tagging you - so, if you don't do it I'll understand. Frannie

When stuff like this happens to me, I sit there stunned, thinking, 'Surely, this didn't just happen'. But it does.

I think you made the smart choice. Start fresh tomorrow ;).

I HATE when that happens. It drives me nuts. Hope it works out better next time.

Hey, it's Beth's (blindasabat) B-day today, December 4th! Be sure to wish her a Happy Birthday!

What the fuck is this??? Swish posts ABOUT NOTHING and she gets 20 comments!?!?!? Is this the Blog version of Seinfeld??? LOLOLOL!

Manic: Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Bina, I'm crazy, that's how. It's 1:16 a.m. right now, and it's totally normal for me to be up this late. BAD!

Thank you, everyone. A lot of my pissed off-ness has faded, but I'm sure it'll be back before long and I can deliver a nice angst-ridden post for you all :)
