Blogspot! What's your damage, yo?

Last night, Blogspot seemed to have a systematic shudder that ate one of my entries, changed the formatting on an existing entry, and refused to let me post yet another entry. The one it refused to post, I admit wasn't very good, but still. It seems to have the post in some sort of suspended animation - it's there, but it's not publicly there. WTF?

I suppose, considering the vast number of blogs out here, it's pretty miraculous hiccups don't happen more often. If you build a free blog site, they will come. (Sorry, "Field of Dreams" was on AMC last night. Ray Liotta as Shoeless Joe Jackson - yeah! My favorite moment is when he says "Ty Cobb wanted to play, but none of us could stand the sonofabitch when we were alive, so we told him to stick it!" and then does his patented Ray Liotta Crazy MF'er laugh. Excellent.)

I don't understand the fakey business blogs that simply have entries that read "maternity-maternity wear-maternity supplies-maternity-baby clothes-babies-baby supplies" ad nauseum. What purpose do these things serve? Anyone have any input? (Anyone actually care?)

"Lost" season premiere tonight. I'm sure there will be more new questions than answers. I fear I'm going to have to start a big Lost flowchart, like we did in Moscow, to track "Twin Peaks." What's in that damn hatch?? Arrrrrg! ("Hey! Nice jacket! What's in the big pink box?" A prize to the first person who identifies the reference - Mr. Squatch is ineligible to play. He knows this far too well... Damn monkeyboy.)

Yeah, things have been hinky w/Blogspot of late. For no reason, my place just went blank. Couldn't figure out what was happening. Finally just republished my template and it came back (including a couple phantom posts I could see but no one else could). Maybe that'll work for you (assuming you haven't tried it already).

I am a random visitor who stumbled on your page by Googling "what's in the big pink box," which I of course know comes from The Adventures Of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension.

Please donate the prize to a deserving charity, or Red Lectroid, in your neighborhood.
