…if this post seems a bit scattered today. you see, it’s a balmy -6 degrees out this morning (that’s 22 degrees if you live south of the border) and i’m not prepared. yes, i realize that i’ve lived in a cold climate for a LONG freakin’ time, but i still am never prepared when winter rears its ugly head.
I don’t have proper winter boots because
i’m vain i haven’t gotten around to it. my various hats and scarves and gloves from last year have all seemed to disappear. And i really need to get me a pair of these. (hee. they’re called earbags)
so…since my brain is still defrosting, this post may be all over the place.
our friends got themselves a brand-spanking new fancy-ass new car. but truth be told, i don’t even know what make of car it is (Lexus, perhaps?) because the only thing that i really care about is that their new car has a fart button. no, i’m not kidding. i’m sure it’s not the technical term, and it’s probably not what the button was specifically designed for.
but…you can fart, push the button, and the smell is gone! it’s like magic. and it’s, like, any wife’s dream.
i’ve felt of late that bloglines has really pissed me off. when i first heard about it a few months ago, i was on board instantly. a website that tells me when the blogs i read are updated??!!! could anything be better than that? no more constant refreshing of pages to see if someone has posted??!! can you imagine the convenience of this concept? wait…what’s that? i was the very last person to hear about this??
for a few months, it was bliss. but then, i would begin to wonder…it’s not like rsm to NOT update her blog daily. and miss zoot? she’s a sometimes thrice-daily updater! what’s going on? were they out of town? I don’t want to have to go hunting down the sites i read. that’s why i have a reader in the first place.
well…people everywhere have been telling me to switch to google reader. it’s better! it’s pretty! it’s user-friendly! it updates instantaneously! so, because over at Schnozzfest, i learned that i could import my bloglines into google reader, i figured i had nothing to lose. so, i switched over.
and it’s painfully slow. painful. but, people are right. it’s much, much better than bloglines. but i can’t take the delays. it takes so long to click on anything. to delete anything. and bloglines automatically marks the sites you’ve been to as read…on google you need to manually mark them as read. pain in the ass.
so…what’s better? who uses bloglines? who uses google reader? anyone have a strong preference either way? anything i can do about the sllllllllllllllloooooooooooowwwwwww-ness of the google reader? because i think if it was faster, i would totally break up with bloglines…like…yesterday. but i can’t make the committment until google gets a little faster. and i can’t go back to bloglines until they start updating their sites quicker. what to do? what to do? what to do?
okay, also, anyone else completely addicted to Heroes?!!
