No Comment

| | Comments (4)

Two of my three readers (the only two, actually, who aren't imaginary! Isn't that lucky?) kindly informed me via e-mail that my comments seem to be broken.

I'm glad they told me, otherwise I probably NEVER would have known.

My uneducated guess is that the broken comments is in some way related to the fact that the entire blog was recently broken.

I suppose my brilliant web mechanics had to sacrifice something in order to get the blog to appear again.

If so, they shouldn't worry, I totally relate. According to Ikea's furniture building instructions, one always had to have NO EXTRA parts or screws leftover when one had finished assembling whatever it was that one had put (or tried putting... remember this?) together.

And of course, without fail, I always had a whole toolbox worth of miniature screws, nuts, bolts and brackets leftover when I was done assembling an Ikea desk, chair, bed or bookshelf. It was enough to drive me so nuts until I finally felt as if I was the one who had a screw loose. But since the furniture always ended up looking more or less like it did on the picture - even though mine DID look and feel a bit more wobbly and skew - I finally figured that those unused screws, nuts, bolts and brackets were obviously just there for show, only serving to make an amateur furniture builder like myself feel Important.

In the same way, my web mechanics probably figured that the unused comments section on this blog was only here for show, only serving to make an obscure blogger like myself feel Important.

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
