Blogger is Mean

I've been trying to post for about a day and a half, but I keep getting error messages saying that Blogger is down from 4-4:30 PST. I think they may have a confused sense of a half hour. I know that other people weren't having all the same problems, because Gmail was notifying me of comments, but I couldn't read them on my site, or leave my own, or do a post. It has been frustrating.

I'm currently working on another site dedicated to my and DS's effort to visit all the zoos in the U.S. I like to make big projects for myself that I probably won't finish, so this one includes me going through the AZA database and logging the locations of all these zoos into a Google Earth map. I also have to back-post about the zoos we've already visited. This is proving difficult, as my initial excitement about them have vanished, and I only remember bits and pieces. When it's ready, I'll let you know (though you can probably find it through my profile).

It's also getting close to tax time for me, and I've remembered that I have to do taxes for two states. I wasn't overly concerned about this until my boss at work told me how confusing the partial-year residence forms for Wisconsin are. I assumed they would be like any other state tax forms. She needed a professional to help, but I'm hoping I can figure it out.

And lastly, I would like to mention that I'm reading a biography of the early years of Queen Elizabeth I. Things like this spark mini-obessions with me, so if anyone knows of any movies about her (excluding Elizabeth, starring Cate Blanchett, which I just rented), please share. I'm all about it.

Believe it or not, the blogger outage for me lasted only about 20 minutes! Can't wait to see your zoo blog. :-)

Sleepy! How's it!? Erm, I dunno when/if we can do the visit thing... with Beth coming and me going and a family vacation here or there and Tolbs wanting to have a booster draft at some point... I think that's like four weekends right there.

Let's start thinking end of February, hey? That's probably doable. Think about it, think about games you'd like to play, and get back to me. Oh, and thanks for the tag!

Oh yeah, I still have your ornaments up. I LOVE THEM! HEHEHEHEHE!


Later! Good luck with taxes! (Ugh!)

I've seen Elizabeth, with Cate Blanchette. I'd SO go gay for her in that movie. Oh the story was good too. I'm fascinated with that whole affair with Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley, myself.

See also 'Shakespeare in Love' for Dame Judi Dench as Elizabeth...full of awesome. And there is an older movie you should DEFINITELY check out Starring Bette Davis as an older Queen Elizabeth, I can't remember the name of it but It's about her and Sir Walter Raleigh. Bette Davis is incredible anyway.

There are times I could swear that I'm a gay man.

I hope you gave Blogger a good swift KICK!
