What a life, sitting in front of a computer making up words for the 'word verification' test. Have you ever really looked at the words? There is probably some disgruntled illegal alien from Pluto; who is mad because Earth downgraded Pluto from a planet to a star; typing up those seemingly meaningless words which are actually some kind of intergalactic communication that will bring on the 405th Galactic War of 2008. (Most attacks are mistaken as meteor showers or falling space trash and either burn up upon entry into the Earth's atmosphere or fall harmlessly into the ocean.)
But yeah, I want that job, just sitting in a little room, typing up nonsensical words and pretending that they have some intelligent meaning. And, sometimes when I'm feeling dangerous, I'll throw in an upper case... or maybe a number that looks like a letter, just to throw off those sneaky spammers, and really screw with those people who don't do well with tests and can never pass the word verification test the first time 'round. (like myself! grrrrrrrrrr!)
Yeah, I want that job!

Gone like yesterday.

True to their word, AOL pulled the plug on the Journals this morning. All links lead back to the People Connection Page, with is full of dead links that circle back by default. And my blogs, all safely transferred to Blogger, are full of little boxes with red X's where photos stored on my ftp once appeared. Fortunately I have all of the files on my hard drive and I can find out the name of the files by clicking on the X's but matching the files and uploading them to the corresponding posts will be mega-time consuming. Thanks AOL, thanks a whole fricken lot!
Oh well, at least the blogs themselves were saved without any problem. I still can't find myself feeling appreciative for AOL's assistance in making it all possible. Grrrrrrrrrr!

The Comment

I wait, I listen breathlessly.
I can almost hear the sound
Of someone reading.
Is it real or imagined,
The tentative tap, tap, tapping
Of somebody typing.
I pounce on the mouse
And it clicks in protest
But a page opens up.
I read and I smile.
Or I flush with rage.
Either way its addictive,
The rush that I get
From a comment.

What?  Forbidden?  Me?  What the frick do you mean I'm forbidden?  Thats MY blog, I'm already signed on to AOL, how can I be fricken forbidden?  Good golly, I pay you abso-fricken-lutely NOTHING for your lousy service and I expect to get my money's worth!

Forbidden my butt! 


Edit 03/08/07:  Apparently my screenshot of the forbidden error message is also forbidden and can no longer be accessed through AOL You've Got Pictures and therefore no longer appears on this entry.  Can you say 'Blogger Gate'?

MEEZ! (try it, its FUN!)

Lookie, its Dorn Meez, blogging away.  Hahaha!  I love these little animation generators.  Thanks Gifdude.  Make your own Meez by going here:  Meez: Home .  I'll warn you now though.. its real graphic intensive and it froze my computer up a couple times while I was working on it.  Probably not recommended for dial-up.  Have fun.

Okay, I suffered a momentary lapse of weakness and I clicked on the banner ad just to see what it was all about, and look what popped up.  I AM NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THIS OFFER!    Isn't that a hoot in the tooter!

Have you noticed the amount of spam that is getting through AOL now that they've gotten into the spam business?  The message boards and journals are full of it.  And, funny thing is, yesterday when I reset my daughter's password, the official notification from AOL was sent to the spam folder in her mailbox by... AOL's spam filters!
