Did you know Pirates took my blog hostage?
Supposedly my blog was traveling around Africa sometime late last week and the Pirates captured, held my blog hostage, and demanded large amounts of chocolates before they would even talk about giving my blog back.
They were ruthless.
And, I was a mess because I threw out all the chocolates when I started my diet. Okay, that's a lie, I ATE all the chocolate before I started by diet...two hours before to be exact. So, I had nothing to offer the Pirates. So, my only option was to figure out how to take it back myself without any negotiating with the chocolate hungry Pirates!
When I first discovered my domain had expired without my knowledge I was totally bummed. Where was I going to talk about all my issues? The Park?
But, after a day or so I felt an overwhelming sense of relief. Relief that I no longer had to be witty or charming on a semi-regular basis which, let's be honest, is never a regular thing around here anyway but the pressure to be witty and charming is always there...looming in the dark corners.
After the relief wore off the panic set in. Day 3 of no blog. Epic panic. A panic so fierce the last time I remember this kind of panic I had just realized the only way out of my pregnant state was to let the alien out through a teeny tiny hole. The panic was intense and it crippled my ability to think clearly (as did the rum last night that I can still taste but that is neither here nor there).
After the panic wore off, determination set in. Come hell or high water I was getting my domain back and I was going to make my blog work even if it killed me and cost me a puppy or two.
The days wore on and I still couldn't get it to work. This morning I had all but given up and decided I was the Internet's bitch when I figured, what the heck, I'll give it one more go.
And hell if didn't work.
Apparently the only thing I needed to do was tell Blogger that I messed things up and then Blogger was all, Oh now I see your Domain.
