Sigh...

So...
I had this brilliantly written, fabulously constructed, highly entertaining, and completely hysterical post all ready for the publishing. I had it 2 minutes ago. It is now gone. I cannot get it back. Blogger, you and I are now at odds in a big way.

Please feel my pain. Please tell me this has happened to you before. Please accept the fact that I'm on the cusp of a massive headache and thisclose to a stuffy nose, therefore I'm unable to start all over again. I must convalesce. (Heather, I'm in need of a SS miracle. You know where I'm heading in just a few minutes. It's worked before--I'm holding out hope that it's not a one time deal.)

I'll try again tomorrow. Can you just bear with me 'til then?

Thanks ever so much.

And because I refuse to leave y'all hanging, I offer this...just for now:

An oldie but a goodie. It makes me happy.

That dude has MAD skillz!

And yes that has happened to me TWICE when I had my Mac blog. Made me so mad I wanted to throw something breakable. Haven't had it happen *yet* with blogger.

But I do feel your pain! And I wish I could read that highly entertaining and completely hysterical post!

Mrs. X said...

I've never had it happen to me, but then again I've only been using Blogger since July, so maybe it's just a matter of time. :)

That video was, at least, ten flavors of SWEET! Thanks for sharing it.

Julie said...

yes, that has happened to me... and I am sorry. I hadn't seen that video and I told my husband to look at it and he said "yeah I saw that a long time ago." I guess I have been loving under a rock. What show was that?

Amy said...

I'm going to feel sympathy and believe you, but are you sure you're not just racing back to FB? :)

heathersister said...

Sorry for your loss, but that was pretty flippin cool.

heathersister said...

BTW, 58 days, wooohooo!!!

Caroline said...

He TOTALLY got that from me.


(btw, i'm on pg. 136)

Heather said...

Oh, you poor thing. Hope the headache is better. Maybe that's what has been wrong with Caroline lately? Hard for a two year old to tell you she has a headache, ya know...

Blogger is a great invention, but sometimes they suck. Like today. Where is your peach blogicon? Where is Becky's camera blogicon? My bandaid is still showing up, but yours and hers are not. Whassup with that?!

sassy stephanie said...

Feel better girl.

That Joseph has mad skillz. First time I have seen it.

Brandy said...

I hope you feel better soon.

The beat boxer was good but YOU are better!

Roses are red

I appreciate your support
And your wearing a thong.

Roses are Red
Stickers leave Goo
Just want you to know
That I love you!!!

Heather W said...

All I have to say is WHAT!?!?! How does that guy do that with his mouth. Awesome.

Sorry about you losing your original post. Yes, that has happened to me and it really chaps my hide.

Heather said...

I've never lost a post before because I'm perfect.

That guy is CRAZY!! I've never seen that before and I made PB stop on his way to the coffee pot to watch it.

I'll send SS over straight away (get it?). tee hee hee

Rhea said...

I'm feelin' your pain. Losing a post sucks. :o(

I compulsively save.

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

Yes, it has happened to me. Well, actually, Safari has shut down right in the middle of a post and I've lost everything.

Or Blogger has refused ... I mean, just REFUSED to publish my uploaded videos ... sometimes taking me days on end to put up. Stupid Blogger! Why do you have to be so temperamental.

I have never seen this video. What the heck? How is he doing that? Freaky weird and entertaining. Thanks.

Pinky Roth said...

Sorry you are having a bad day...hope you feel better.

Mom

KimmyJ said...

Feel better, love muffin.

How does that guy do that? I've never seen that B4....What is SS? I need to know. :)

The Pink Potpourri said...

ugh. that's so aggrevating. i've had that happen before. but thanks for posting the video! it was good too!

Tony C said...

UUUUGGGHHHHH! I hate that! I'm new to Blogger, but it's happened to me already.

Love your blog, BTW. Good stuff.

angie said...

Blogger and I have had some creative differences. He thinks he has the right to trash what he doesn't like. I think he's sadistic. But that's just me.

Lauren W said...

Oh Honey... :(
Go find yourself some chocolate (you know, dark chocolate often helps headaches. I'm just sayin'), put on some fabulous tunes, and go have a happy day.

Veggie Mom said...

Blogger has messed me up before, bigtime, too. AnyWho, I have something for you at my place that'll make you feel better! Just a little ol' somethin'-somethin' for all you do. Please drop on by and pick it up when ya get a chance!

Me said...

That happened to me once, but then I realized it was sitting in drafts.

Did you check there?

Mama's Losin' It said...

I'm perfect too. And might I suggest typing your material out on Word first.

And I'm not a fan of the inside jokes on the blog. It's not fair. Now you have to tell us ALL what SS is.

Elena said...

ARggghhhh...BLOGGER! It did that to me last week. So frustrating. I finally got it to keep some of my post but it had weird huge spaces and I couldn't edit it or it would erase. So sorry it ate up your post. I always look forward to the good laugh I get while reading your blog. And HOLY WHAT???? How does a person do that with their mouth? I'm good to get the words I mean to say, out in one piece.

CaraBee said...

I have had that happen before. It sucks. Also when Blogger eats my perfectly written comments just before I hit publish. Hate. It. That video is awesome. How do so many noises come out of one mouth at the same time?

Insane Mama said...

blogger gobbled up mine also, not too long ago. I feel your pain.

Nik said...

OH NO!!! I hate when a post gets chewed up.

That guy is amazing!

Ronnica said...

Okay, I added Hunger Games to my TBR list. I'll let you know once Dorian Gray gets read/reviewed.

Live.Love.Eat said...

Yikes, I sorry. What's a SS miracle? And can I have one? Ha. Or we can talk about vampire sex, that makes me happy :) Hope you get to feeling better. I just got over something nasty!

Oreste said...

Hello Lula, a salute from Rome. Ciao

KJ Schiffman said...

I've had that happen before! I would get so frustrated which is now why everything I write for the blog gets done in Word of a writing program like that and then pasted into blogger.

Otherwise that pan you saw raised in that photo on my blog today...it was going to attack the computer! lol.

Angie's Spot said...

I SOOOOOOO feel your pain. Blogger has eaten more entries in the last 2 weeks than I care to count. ARGH!!!

And that video was AMAZING. That guy is seriously talented. Thanks for the peek!

Kathi said...

Oh, I am soooo sorry! How dare Blogger do that to you!!!

Jyl @ MommyGossip said...

OK... that was hilarious! I think you lost that post just so I could see this :).

I was going to write a sentimental post about my gram last night. Had it all written, and was totally not in the mood for sentimental. I ended up posting a vid too. I'll write it tomorrow. I just needed more time to think about it.

Can't wait to read your post tomorrow.

Thanks for your comment yesterday. I thought you may want to drop by since you love all things Twilight. :)

Karen said...

That guy has talent!!!

And yes, blogger has done nasty things to me as well. Like last Wednesday night when I was going to be one of the spotlighted blogs on BATW that Thursday. I had to post at 9pm my time, to match Debbie's midnight post. I'd actually written my post the day before to ensure thatI had it ready in time.

About 4 hours before lift off time, I opened the post up to give it a final once over, made one correction and Blogger deleteted all of the post from the point at where I'd added one word. That amounted to 3/4's of my post!!!

I ended up rewriting that post about 4 times before I was finally able to post it.

Debbie suggested that I copy what I had remaining of the original post into a new post and go from there. That finally worked, but it was extremely infuriating!!!

I feel your pain!!

Teri said...

Oh, that guy is actually kinda cool.

And I always type my stuff on Word before I let Blogger get a hold of it. I don't trust it. You just confirmed my fears.

Kat said...

I ususally write in word and then cut and paste into blogger. Because this has happened to me. And it happens all the time with my comments. Either it eats them. Or publishes 37 of them. Blogger and I are at odds, too. Get in line :-)

(Hope you are feeling better!)

Debbie said...

Oh yes the blogger gremlin got me last week as well. I panicked...and re-wrote. Now I copy everything into a word document before I hit publish so that it doesn't disappear on me. I hope you are having a better day!
