Fx4: Confessions of a Google Junkie

Those of you who have grown used to Veggie Mom's prolific posting and commenting must have been sorely disappointed this week. She's been fighting with Google, and let's just say it hasn't been pretty.

Starting Monday night, the Search Engine That Owns Me started throwing hissy fits. First, I couldn't access Blogger, which of course, means no Eat Your Veggies! Then, I could get to Blogger, but I couldn't sign on. Then, I could get the EYV Home Page to load~well, half of it, anyway.

The long and the short of it is that I've felt a tad off-kilter all week long. At one point, I discovered that if I wanted to search for something, that was fine, but YouTube, Blogger, GMail and Picassa Web were all off-limits.

Google 's only been around for 10 years or so, but I'm feeling like Google Apps have been running things for centuries. When will the madness end?

Finally, last night, things started settling down. No more fragmented screens. No more odd dips and cyber-blips. I could open up Blogger, start a new post, and write something.

Only one problem. The program let me compose this post and post the graphic above. But posting photos seems to be out, for now. So I'm celebrating Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Fiesta with all that I've got. Words.

They have it out for us you know! Google and Blogger, they hate the world.

Adiel is moving to California. She got a job with Kaboodle and is leaving us! So happy and so sad!

Major Blogger-Google-Internet Explorer issues for moi, too, today! Actually these 3 Musketeers have been pretty goofy all week, come to think of it. And my Hotmail account won't open half the time! Do you think it's a conspiracy?

I hate it when Google gets all wonky. My hubby switched off of gmail for similar reasons.

I won't jinx it and says anything about Wordpress. Just glad you're back at it.

I'm thinking someone forgot to make the sacrifice at the altar of Google this week. For shame, for the wrath is great ;)
