AAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!


Yesterday, I spent about 30 minutes putting together a mosaic meme that somebody had done on her blog....it looked very cool, so thought, "What the heck? I'm as cool as her! I can do this!!"
Obviously......and no thanks to whatever powers there are out there...I guess I'm not and I can't.
I was almost finished with the 'going through and finding pictures to match your answer' process...when...suddenly.......the screen went blank....the lights flickered...and it was quiet for about 3 seconds before the computer "peeped" and came back on.....all clean and ready to start over.
ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME?!?!?!
5.....4......3......2......1.........and breathe........
Okay....so fast forward to tonight....I've got some things on my mind...well...one thing mainly and it's causing me some stress. It's one of those things that you keep thinking about.....when really....you KNOW what the solution is....you just hate it don't like it very much.
So I thought that I would try the meme again (therapy, you know).....after going through and finding the 12 (yes...12!!) pictures to match my answers....I had the mosaic all ready....needed to do one more thing and it took me to a page to "register" my account....didn't want to do that....hit the "back" button.....and......yep...you guessed it....the page had expired.
frustrate: /prevent/ v to prevent the plans or efforts of (someone or something) being achieved
If I were to say, or type (as the case may be) that I was frustrated with my computer....and since this whole post is mainly in red.....really.....
are you feeling the anger at all????
Okay....so something to make me smile is definitely in order........here is something that my friend Misti sent the other day......I love this and it made me smile....and a little less frustrated!!!

video

I hope that the video works....if it doesn't....I'm sorry.......but...we could look at it this way....maybe you're a little frustrated you can't see it and well.....I hate having feelings like this alone.

**At least....it was a beautiful day today....almost perfect weather!

See.......I'm still finding the positive in things!!! (smiles) and to you all!!!!

I can understand your frustration. I never try stuff like that bc I KNOW I'll get frustrated. But, that video is adorable!

Hi! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I only saw it today otherwise I would have replied to you ages ago. Yes, I was in Nagasaki! Can't say that I saw you though.. but I did meet very friendly people there. Loved the harbour, the Peace Park, Glover Garden and that bar where anyone can come in do a bit of jammin' after work. I really liked your post about the slippers... made me laugh! Take care and keep blogging!

Little things like that make me crazy. I hate wasting time and to have spent the time with no end result, well, arrrggghhhh.

Your header pretty much sums it up. This usually happens to me when I've written a very long, in-depth comment. Blogger decides that I have been waaaaaay too verbose, and cuts me off. So that's why my comments are always short and, dare I say it, often meaningless. I daren't say anything important, because BLOGGER will cut me off.

Pressing Publish now and hoping for the best.

When I did mine I pasted each url to a Word doc and saved it as I went along--when I had an accidental "lose"--I think it happened to everyone who did this meme that was new to Flickr, I was not quite as sunk as you were.

Maybe try it again while drinking a margarita!

Ack, so so sorry. And I would really love to see your mosaic (no guilt or pressure...).

Good on you for taking a breath and finding something to smile about. And something wholesome instead of a hot young half-dressed man, like I would have resorted to.

Debbie, that's happened to me more times than I'd like to admit! Love the graphic, though, too cute!

I love the title and the woman shooting the dang computer. I totally get her (and you).

The video worked! Go You!

You know, while I was doing that mosaic meme, I had a feeling my computer would crash after putting ALL that effort into it. It didn't, thankfully, but I can understand your frustration. Where does that information GO and why can't we get it back?

Funny video.
