Damn, damn, damn! I have found myself in the clutches of yet another addiction. The sneakiest, most insidious one yet. Sob.
Yesterday was a bloody nightmare from about 11 am right through to 11 am this morning. There I was placidly munching my morning bran flakes like one of Carnation's contented cows and clicking on the Blogger Dashboard icon when, suddenly appears the ominous message....."Blogger is not Available". Gasp. Surely this cannot be. What can this mean? Seventy or eighty hysterical clicks later all achieving the same result and I had to face the fact that Blogger was not Available.
I refuse to confess all the things that went through my mind at that final moment of truth. Furthermore, I refuse to admit the things that went through my mind all day and evening and night as I futilely kept attempting to make the connection. By bedtime I had to accept the fact that my Bloggy addiction is nearly life- threatening.
With shaking fingers I tapped gingerly at the keyboard this morning with fear and apprehension clutching at my heart...........tenks gott it didn't tell me that Blogger Was Unavailable............24 hours of deprivation is over my limit I have found.........sigh. Now I must go lie down and put cold cloths on my forehead. I cannot blog today.
