When blogs crap out.

It wasn’t my fault. My blog host,, had a maintenance failure yesterday that took their site (and ten bazillion blogs worldwide) offline beginning at 2:30 p.m. During the evening — and for the following 18 hours — blogs like the Howdygram eventually began to reappear in fits and false starts. This morning I noticed that my two posts from May 12 had vanished. When they finally popped up half an hour ago both had TODAY’S DATE on them. This is not a huge deal, I suppose, but there’s no way to fix it and some bloggers are way more neurotic than I am. (Not very many, however.)

Hey! The Howdygram would like to wish a happy 50th birthday to Sam’s sister Tammy. We’re sorry we can’t be there to celebrate with you, Tam, so maybe you can just email a piece of cake. A corner piece with extra frosting and a flower would be great. And a napkin. Thank you.

In other news, I bought myself a new personal care product today from ... Veet wax strips. I’m excited about this! I can’t see well enough to tweeze my own eyebrows any more, and Veet is made especially for your face and eyebrows. So it sounds like I’ve got a new hobby and something constructive to do in my spare time. As a matter of fact, if I get good at this I might even open my own waxing studio. Please send me an email to request a wax job and a bran muffin. Thank you.

Before I forget, our Big Spring Giveaway ends on Sunday, May 15, which means you only have TWO DAYS LEFT to enter! We’ve got some excellent prizes. Don’t screw this up.
