Save Your Electronics! Save Yourself!

I had a scary moment yesterday. I was tinkering with the Romancing The Yarn blog, trying to tweak the colors, when I decided to flip over to this blog to steal one of the buttons. Imagine my surprise when I got here and discovered that all of the post titles had disappeared and taken the comments (including the option to leave comments) with it.

To be honest, I don't know what I've been thinking. I am the acknowledged Queen of Destruction when it comes to electronic equipment, software, email, TVs, VCRs, DVD players. You name it, I've wrecked it. And not in blazing rock star fashion either. All I have to do is press the ON button and the wrath of the gods rains down on the poor unsuspecting item. I had absolutely no business setting up a blog, tinkering with a blog, breathing on a blog, because sooner or later said blog is going to go belly-up on me.

I took a deep breath and decided to try a new template for this space. They warned me that I would lose all customizations so I copied it over and tucked it aside before I began. My hope was that the old blog format (dates back a few years which is eons in cyberspace) might have run its course and that a newer one would improve functionality.

So far, so good. Now if I could just get someone else to type in my posts, it might live to celebrate a birthday or two. (Don't laugh. I've actually asked my husband to type a note for me. Sometimes it's the only way I can communicate with the outside world!)

One day I'll take a photo of the corner of my office where Electronic Equipment Goes to Die. It's quite a sight.

And so is this. I thought you might need something cool and refreshing today. (Did I ever tell you that once upon a time my mother painted my bedroom to look like the inside of a watermelon? I loved it!)
