55 Love Hate Relationship

Delighted with my efforts, 
I placed the final period 
after typing my 55th word. 
Proud as a parent of a new child, 
I pulled my drop down menu 
to properly schedule my post 
for 5:02 PM 
just after the G-Man 
would open the gates 
to shepherd in his ardent followers. 
Then...
BOOM! 
Blogger Exploded. 
Shit!

Even though G called off the day's event, 
I still needed to vent. 
So why not do so in the form of a 55. 
Here's to Blogger. 
Thhpppppbb.

It was like the blogosphere's version of the August 2003 blackout (across much of North America - not sure where you're located). At first you think it's just you. Then that everything will be normal again in a half hour. Then you're out on the street with a candle partying with the neighbours, because hey, what else is there to do?

A casualty of Blogger. So sorry for your loss.

Some day, you'll be retelling to your grandkids where you were when Blogger went out for 24 hours! Hee hee

I love any post that uses "Thhpppppbb" as a word.

Thanks for visiting my Friday 55, even though G-Man cancelled the event for this week. (Sigh!)

If anyone else wants to visit, it's here. :)

Yeah, schools out with a Bomb Threat, and you still stay for extra credit!
What a trooper!
Thaqnks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

So what are you saying, MM? Was it YOU that broke Blogger?!? :)

Ha. I went to bed early last night cuz there was nothing else to do. You know you have a problem when...

Well, I did a 55 too, for what it's worth. Since G's not got a post to link up with, I'll tell you. Mine is Here.

Well, the blogger "boggle" helped you create a cute 55!

I will always remember where I was the day blogger was shot...

And how 'bout this as a few more words in the end: ...and then several thousand people switched to Wordpress...
You're very clever though! As always!
