Pre-vacation bonus Blog!

I just saw these two headlines on the Yahoo! homepage.

Well, duh.

Aging Octopus Finds Mate At Last In Alaska

That's Internet dating for you. Hasn't this octopus guy watched any hockey? I can hear his new girlfriend when they meet in "person" for the first time--"Hey, nice to meet you...say, watch out for that iceberg!" "Too late, lady--you're gonna need a zamboni, or at least a putty knife, to get him unstuck now. Ugh, he's gettin' ink everywhere."

* How about a digression that doesn't digress from anywhere? I just wanted to register my disappointment at the general broke-ass-ness of the new Blogger interface. The login is dodgy, the new features are pretty useless if you know basic HTML, and the bolding feature doesn't work right. I hope they get themselves sorted out over the next 10 days or so.

OK, so this is worse than I thought. First, I thought Blogger was so broken that I couldn't post anymore. Then it turned out to be worse than that--I have to post to the fucking thing with Explorer. Fucking Explorer! What a bunch of retards. I logged in with Explorer, and discover that all my attempts to post with the far-superior Opera browser were actually successful, it's just that Blogger's now too buggered up to reply properly. So I went in to edit my posts and remove the four excess postings, and what do I discover? Ta-daaaa! The "edit posts" window doesn't work right, even in Exploder. I managed to get it to work, but barely. I tell you, if this interface doesn't work with at least SOME other non-Microsoft browser, Blogger and I may be finished. Blogger will be like an aging octopus stuck to an iceberg, and I'll have to decide to scrape it up or split on the check.
