When all else fails...

...post a pic of one of the cats. Here is Syd looking quite fuzzy and, dare I say, leonine. Huh?


Sorry, but this time of the year my thoughts are all about the Yankees and March Madness/April Anxiety NCAA hoops. It's the "guy gene". I haven't found a way to suppress it yet, but there are a shitload of doctors working on a cure. I am getting a little better. I've made it almost a week without staying up for Baseball Tonight on ESPN

Thank God(dess) Gia is a Yankee fan too! Otherwise we might not speak for a weeks at a time at the beginning of baseball season. Phew!

BLOGGER.COM NOTES
  • I see that they are working on another upgrade for Blogger. This one has scheduled post posting, new blogroll featuring Google Reader, Google gadget support and a bunch of other things. It's about time they upgraded around here. I was going to pick up my shit and move elsewhere. Not really...too lazy.
  • I don't see it in the new features, but they really should make the comment editor/interface more user friendly. We've talked about this before...so let's move on.
  • Maybe I am just stupid, but whenever I upload a picture to a post in the post editor Blogger always puts it at the top of the post and then I have to move it to where I want the picture to be. Why can't I just go to the spot in the post where I want the pic to be and drop it there? This annoys me. Either I'm doing something wrong or Blogger is just plain clunky with this feature. Aaarghhh.
That is all. Have a nice weekend! - Earl

It is spring...I don't follow over-paid 30 year old boys who are paid to play with balls. My thoughts turn to over seeding the winter rye grass with Bermuda....hot damn, can't wait.

i'm so with you on the "insert photo" function with Blogger. Not only does it stick the photo at the top, but it usually adds an extra line of space bewteen all my paragraphs. frustration!!!! GRRR

Paige Stanton said...

I also agree about the photo thing. It annoys me!

B.E. Earl said...

Lotus - No one can talk me down off of my "baseball" tower. I love the game.

Diva - I KNOW! The added lines suck, and sometimes when you delete them it deletes both lines and you can't ever fix it. Aaarrrggghh!!!

Paige - Good to know I'm not alone.

this is the part of my post where i plead with you for the millionth time to get the Hell off of blogger and code your own damn site...

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - That's just crazy talk. The issues it has, and it has issues, are not enough to make me want to deal with creating my own web-page. Get real.

Ginormous Boobs said...

That's great - right after I spend 10 years adding my blogroll to my reader feed, they are going to merge the two.

Figures.

Poppy Cede said...

I would like to smooch Syd on his little tiny head. and his nose. and his ear.

That is all. Carry on!

B.E. Earl said...

G-Boobs - That's, um, why I never bothered with a reader feed. Yeah...that's the reason. Not laziness, no, never that.

Poppy - There is nothing tiny about Syd. He is Massive Cat. 25 pounds to him. When he wakes us up with a head butt to the face, it's like getting punched by Mike Tyson. Back in the early days.

white rabbit said...

I know the problem - some days the blog just doesn't come - so I raid YouTube and stick up a bit of music - but a pic of cat works too :D

Don't cats just have a way of looking at you as if to say 'you so piss me off you miserable excuse for a mammal'?

Poppy Cede said...

The logical retort: At least he doesn't bite your ear off.

25 lbs is tiny. I weigh waaaaaaaay more than that!

B.E. Earl said...

White Rabbit - Yeah, cats can look you into the grave if they want.

Poppy - Of course, Syd is much less of an animal than Tyson. ;)

With you on the photo one!!! Grrrr.

Baseball - at least the Jay's won.

But HOCKEY??? Playoffs. Try it.
