>I'm not sure when Google decided this would be a good idea, but I
discovered a couple of weeks ago when I tried to post from a computer
other than mine or Carin's that in order to sign into Blogger, I now had
to solve a damn CAPTCHA after entering my username and password. This,
of course, just will not do, and I politely suggest that whichever
Google employee made this call dig into an economy-sized bag of go fuck
So rather than spend time I don't have over the holidays trying to mess
with settings on other people's web browsers, I figured it would be a
lot easier to just set up Blogger By Email. So this is my test post, I
hope it works.
I'm heading out to do the family thing for the next…oh…probably week
or better, so I'm not sure how much you'll be hearing from me. I left a
comment on the birthday post wishing you all well, but now that I've got
a reason to post I'll do it again. All the best to everybody who takes
the time to read this crap every day or even now and then. I say it all
the time, but we honestly do appreciate all of you, even the ones we
have to yell at because you're dumb. You keep things interesting. that
doesn't mean continue being dumb, but you're probably not smart enough
to figure that part out. Oh man, this good tidings stuff is heading off
the rails fast…not what I'd intended…sorry about that, just still
don't entirely have the Christmas spirit.
Speaking of my lack of spirit, Carin and I have made up our minds that
next year things are going to be different. We're not sure what the
plan is going to be, but wherever we end up, we're spending Christmas
together. Somebody's probably going to be disappointed in one or both
of our families, but oh well, that's just how it's got to be. I wish
we'd decided that for this year, but it's too late now. Last Christmas
should have been the final straw, I feel like this would have been the
right time. when you're not looking forward to spending the holidays
with people you love something's gone wrong, and that's where I'm at. I
love my family, but I can still honestly say I don't want to make this
trip. The one thing I was looking forward to was spending Christmas day
with my immediate family without having to run around to anyplace else.
We hardly ever get to do that, but last year we did and it was an
amazing day. This year that's not going to happen, and in it's place I
get to go to a party I have absolutely no desire to attend. If only
we'd figured this stuff out earlier. Oh well, next year. But enough
whining. Things could be a lot worse.
Merry Everything to everybody, and I'll talk to you when I can. I'm
going to hit send now and see what happens.
