a second protestive acquiescence

I bet you're all relieved that I've moved on from the famous face recognition...

I've decided to submit to blogger's pestering and switch to the newer version. Stupid beta.

Not only has my internet been down for the past two days (apparently a wire was cut in Malibu, so even the campus was affected), which meant no blogging, no email and no phone (stupid Vonage); but also annoying was the last day it was working, blogger was freaking out on me. I couldn't post, I couldn't comment, etc. So frustrating. But those who had beta seemed to be fine. I guess it was just a problem with the old and obsolete version.

So I'm old now and I'm going to switch. I'm nervous, because I'm worried that it won't let me fiddle around with my site's html and junk and I'll be locked into a set template. I'm done protesting (for now). Now I go to acquiesce, as alluded to in my title. *sigh*

PS- speaking of being old, some guy stopped me at Costco and said, "You look too young to be that kid's mother. How old are you, 12?!" And just like everyone else who has said similar things, I'm sure it was just a compliment... like asking what year I was in school and when I said a senior, they automatically assumed it was high-school... or the one time a lady told me that I would appreciate in 20 years how young I look, when I was 15, to which I replied (in my head), "So what makes you think that a teenager right now, wants to be told how young she looks? Save your comment for twenty years and then we'll see how I feel about it!" But I am old, according to blogger. So I'm off to acquiesce in beta-land.


  1. you can still play with the html all you want in the beta. it's pretty fun...I'm sure you know.

  2. HA!!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one. For YEARS people have looked at me with "Shame, shame, shame" written all over their faces, for having had children at such a young age. People keep telling me it's a compliment, but I don't think so.

  3. Thank you for sharing my youthful looks. I am so pleased that I am not the only one that gets bombarded with comments referring to how young I must have been when I had my children. And I know that I should not be offended, but I am offended. *huff* I thought when I turned thirty that I would be grateful to look young, but I still feel like I am constantly having to prove how reputable I am now. Alas, I am doomed to look young until it no longer bothers me and then I am certain to look my (old) age.... I thought I already commented on this one, but apparently it's just out there floating in cyberspace for all to read. Oh wait, there it is, I see it right next to this one.

  4. Hey fellow mommy!

    Yeah, your comments don't publish until they've been sent to me to okay...

    You're a safe bet though! Usually...
    jk! ;)

  5. I'm thankful that I'm not the only one that has been awarded the "Youngest Mother in the World" award. Glad a few of you can relate.


You're currently in the process of making my day. So thanks for that! *B
