Comments seem to be working again!!!

Before I get too cocky (about it being back in working order because of something I've done all by myself for a change, and not because of her or her or her web-wizardry), maybe I shouldn't speak prematurely. I mean, it could've been working due to the fact that I was commenting to my own site, no?

I did, however, delete some funny-looking things from my MT blacklist, and by saying 'funny-looking' you can imagine for yourselves HOW funny-looking it must've been amongst all the blacklisted items for things to enhance body parts which I don't possess and just all the nastiest things one couldn't possibly imagine on one's own, no matter how gutter-minded one thinks one is.

Maybe my unusually militant (these days, at least) spam police just took a brief doughnut break at the very moment that I decided to leave a comment, therefore allowing me to slip through.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

P.S. Thank you and you and you and you AND you AAAAAANNNND lastly, but not leastly, you very much for assuring me that you've been trying to comment and to tell me that I shouldn't have to rely on receiving comments to know that you still read. I know I've said this before, but part of getting your feedback is what thrills me the most about blogging!

I know one is supposed to blog for one's own pleasure/well-being/therapy/whatever (and I applaud those bloggers who do, honestly I do!), but I'd be lying shamelessly if I claimed that I don't write with all of you in mind. I know that goes against the grain of every single "how-to" writing book I have in my possession (and believe me, I have quite a collection!), but maybe it's because I was trained to write (and clearly my mind wandered a lot in class, because I still have a LOT to learn about writing) for a newspaper/magazine/television/radio audience all those eons ago when I was in journalism school.

Thank you all for sticking with me, through thick and not-thin-yet-but-dreaming-about-it-every-day; through broken comments and working comments; through my blogging dryspells and my blogging... well, I guess I've never really had a blogging downpour (or outpour, for that matter); through my gross over-use of parentheses and asterisks; through all my to-be-continued's, and then never continuing. (I promise, Kim, I'll get there yet!)

I ADORE you guys, even though I've never received a single hate-mail out of any one of you! (And in the rare, miraculous event that I have a new sucker reader: only popular bloggers seem to ever receive hate mail (you gotta admit, someone has to REALLY care to take all the time and energy to send you any kind of comment, but ESPECIALLY a hateful one!), and I've never received a SINGLE hate-mail, which is why I'm so obsessed about it. Oh, well...)

P.P.S. And on a different note. This totally deserves its own post, but since the back-corridors here at Redsaid's are already way too cluttered with half-written entries and my good intentions of getting them done and published, I'll just do it right now: Everyone, PLEASE go over to Annika's and say congrats? Just like so many other bloggers right now, the girl has a little something growing in her stomach! Man, and I have trouble merely keeping up this BLOG! Anyway, I would've left a comment myself on her site to offer my congrats, but unfortunately, she has turned off anonymous comments, so I can't creep her out by pretending to be a stalker anymore, and well, that just takes all the fun out of it, now doesn't it? Oh, and on a different note, Linda has already had her bundle of joy and future blogger! So congrats are due there as well.

I know all this testing is insanely boring, but because the home pc has been acting all mysterious.

But mind you, it doesn't take much for anything technological (or should I rather say technoILlogical. Okay, okay... terrible. I can't promise to stop though!) to appear all mysterious around me.

Anyway, again, here's hoping!

P.S. Didn't work... :-( I had to resort to the laptop once more.

Whoo-hoo! After being unable to upload my blog from the home pc, the boy went to see a man about a laptop and said mysterious and very clever man made the laptop internet worthy.

I'm holding my breath and hoping...

Still having trouble uploading my own site. So just a quick check after some tweaking to see if this will work!

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!)
