I fought the lawn… and the lawn won

We broke Blogger

Filed under: Geek Wannabe on Thursday, July 27, 2006

“We” being Bonnie Calhoun and Bonnie Wren, Blogger Breakers Extraordinaire.

As we’ve bumbled through template fixing, we did something that messed everything up, because Blogger definitely hasn’t been the same since we started.

And since I’m in a confessional state of mind, let’s talk about Google. I haven’t been able to access my Google mail, Google News or Google specialized searches since last night. I’d like to blame that one on Bonnie C., but I probably had something to do with it, too.

And it’s hot. And muggy. 87% humidity today, and I know, I know, IT’S NOT PHOENIX. Because if it were, I’d spontaneously ignite. Seeing as how it’s only San Diego heat and humidity and all, I’m remaining in a liquid state.

And it’s not… even… August.

  1. I’m reduced to primordial ooze – and this is Canada!

  2. Hi, Bonnie, I’m sneaking in under my penname. :) So…the Bonnie’s broke something, eh? I wasn’t around much lately to notice, but I catch anything else, I’ll be sure to let you know. :)

  3. I particularly like the “But-er-in-er” part. ;)

    Ciao bella…stay cool. Wait, you already are cooool. Okay, stay comfortable.

  5. Getting a few too many smart remarks from the folks in Phoenix? I confess, we do have a survivor mentality when it comes to the heat. But, we can’t complain this week. It’s been cloudy, rainy and in the 90s. Tomorrow the temperature will sink into the (gasp) mid 80s. Downright arctic for us.

    If Mojo needs a break from the heat, just send him on over!

  6. I declare…“Bonnie Wren is the bestest butt-er-inner I know.” Praise the Lord for her…and you, my dear Wren can butt in any time you wanna!

    We did not break Google…but we did invent the internet! Bwahahahaha!

  7. Arctic? It’s been humid as hell in Phoenix. I may as well be in Philadelphia.

  8. Hey, guys!

    All I can say is, IT’S COOLER TODAY. Hooray!

    M.G. and Elizabeth, I don’t know how you live in it through the summer. I feel bad about complaining, but dang, we don’t have air conditioning! And our California houses are notorious for their poor insulation.

    Bonnie, I’m so glad you didn’t mind me “helping”! But I am SURE it was YOU who broke Google! Yes! It was!

    Michelle, we couldn’t get into ANY Blogger accounts for at least a day. It was Bonnie Calhoun’s fault, mostly.

    ;-)

    Teri, I hope you stayed cool in the OC. Orange County is usually hotter than coastal San Diego.

    Savannah, long time, no hear! Congratulations on your book!

    Bernita, I was so hot, I absolutely lost most of my higher brain functions. I could barely walk in a straight line, much less drive.

    I hope it’s cooler for everyone this week.

  9. Ok… being a Texan all my life, I am going to give you my #1 tip to stay cool:

    STAY INSIDE.

    That’s it! If you MUST go outside, make it quick or be sure it involves being in a swimming pool.

    By the way: it was 103 here around 4pm yesterday! I don’t know how hot it was around noon or 1pm because I followed my #1 tip :)
