Technical Difficulties

The blog is under unstoppable spam attack. I can't ban the perps. The only thing I have the option to ban is because these NEW spam programs have somehow subverted THE BLACKLIST! I'm so lagged and tormented I don't know if this will post, and I am getting 30 - 40 e-mails an HOUR of love drug comments from PHARM 4 U and UR HARD DRUG CHEEP and many many other GREAT and TRUSTWORTHY sources for prescription medication. Because who wouldn't want to accept fistfuls of drugs from people who can't spell the pronoun "you?"

Filed under TMI, I would also like to say that if I am a man in my next life and MY genitals ever stop working properly, I think instead of, say, seeing a doctor and then going to the Kroger Pharmacy, I will IMMEDIATELY order some HOME MADE viagra-like substances from possible criminals I find via blog comments. Because in my next life, I plan to be that sort of devil may care rebel! Maybe the drugs will fix the problem, or MAYBE my reproductive equipage will explode and kill me! Heavens, now THAT sounds like an ADVENTURE. THANKS, DOCTOR Spam Spider!

Mr. Husband is working on it.
Supposedly updating to the newer version of MT will fix their little red flaccid wagons. SO we are backing up all the drives and backing up all the files and backing up this and that and the other thing and implementing and recogitating and reformatting and etc.

By "we" I of course mean "Mr. Husband."

This is why we love the Mr. Husband.
Why, Maisy said to him, just this morning, "Oh Daddy! I love you so! Even though you are hairy!"

Big of her, really.
ANYWAY. "We" are working on it.

Hopefully it will be fixed soon and I can tell you how FREAKIN'AMAZING it was to see the Indigo Girls after 15 years, and that the Decatur Book Fest blew the lid off the town, AND I met Tayari Jones.

All I can tell you right now is where to get Cialis soft tab-like objects for CHEEP! CHEEP! 4 U SO CHEEP!

OH I hate those spammers, yes I do. I hate them in a boat, I hate them on a plane, I hate them in the kitchen and I hate them in the rain.

Come to the dark side, Joshilyn. Wordpress... Wordpress... Wordpress... you are getting sleepy... you desire a better spam filter... Wordpress... Wordpress.... ;)

Isn't it nice to have someone immediately available just for situations like this? And reassuring too! I love my live-in geek.

You must, however, get it fixed because I can't wait to hear about how the 'Go Girls are doing! I love them!

And you! And of course you're much prettier!

It is largely annoying to be attached by spammers. At work I came back from a one week vaction to 2500+ spam; I'd deleted 3 or 400 from home. Thank heavens I do have a spam filter (that screws up everything else, but it does catch spam.

Thank heavens for Mr. Husband

drats, senseless me.

I've missed the Indigo Girls for the last two years. Bummer Dude! :(

If you buy some from them, will it make them go away?????

This is totally unrelated to your post, but I just wanted to say, I bought and read gods in Alabama last week and it's freakin' amazing. I mean, everyone said it was superfantabulous, but I never actually believe hype, ya know? You rock though, chicky.

I, too, am drowning in drug and stock offers from people who CANNOT spell. How are these people any different from those crazy Nigerians who want to give me $1 M?

Sad I missed Decatur. Did you talk to Michael Connelly?

The Indigo Girls will be in Asheville in a couple of weeks. I have tixs! Woo-hoo!

There is apparently a rule that all spammers and phishers and other internet parasites must not, under any circumstances, be able to spell. Or punctuate correctly. Or write anything at all with subjects and verbs that agree. I hope you get it fixed soon because I want to hear about the Indigo Girls!

Gosh, we all DO love Mr. Husband. It's good that you have a 'geek' around. I find mine faaaascinating, especially when he starts talking in other languages. Really, I think the man DREAMS in code.

Also, I think it's freakin' awesome that you can even mention Cialis and Viagra and make them seem so funny. Truly, I can't wait for your next book.

"little flaccid red wagons..." wasn't that a William Carlos Williams poem? With something about white chickens standing around, and being glazed with rainwater?

Oh, wait, I guess it was a wheelbarrow. HUGE relief!

I agree. And I will also get a bigger penis once I order the right stuff to make it work.
