What's new, APL? Whoaaa, whoaaa, whoaaa*

Since my last post ...


  • I have switched to the new Blogger. Against my will, but whatever. Now I feel this tremendous pressure to come up with brilliant, funny tags. Meh.

  • We all went to see the Mouse on Ice. AB had a good time, and now he wants to see (Fucking) Aladdin.

  • I have slept maybe twelve hours.

  • I have switched my diet drink loyalties. Now instead of Diet Coke with Lime, I'm all about the Cherry Coke Zero.

  • I have been tagged by DaniGirl and will at some point tag some other bloggers.

  • I have canceled my Netflix subscription (sorry, Susan!) because I wasn't watching any movies.

  • AB's new thing is saying: "Guess what, Mom?" ("What?") "I loooooove you." He rules.

  • ALB's new thing is (almost) sitting up. He also loves rice cereal. (Interesting to me, because AB never got into cereal. He was more about the veggies.)

Welcome back, APL. You take your time settling back into the green, green grass of your blog home.

Who can do anything without sleep? You are brave, very brave, and I salute you!

You forgot to mention that all four human household members have been sick in the past three weeks.

My stomach hurts just thinking about it. Ulp.

I am so addicted to Diet Lime Coke....but I'll have to try Cherry Coke Zero.

Hope you get some more sleep soon.

Hello! How's about y'all come over next weekend and they can watch (fucking) Aladdin together?

We also now own Flushed Away (shhhh, don't tell MM yet).

Poor APL.

I suggest restarting Netflix and renting exceedingly boring films, preferably in foreign languagues.

Zzzzzz.

I'm tellin' ya, APL, go with WordPress. It is the sh*t. Far fewer service failures, far easier and more reliable operation and, for everyone I've heard from but me, painless and almost instantaneous import from Blogger accounts, comments and all.

(I've begun creating my own WordPress tags, too, but not so much shooting for funny but for originality as measured by the number Wordpress assigns a tag. For example, uncategorized = 1. Fun = 272. T-shirts I hope to sell someday = 686570.)

Welcome back!

We are hot and cold on Netflix too. But lately, to relieve stress, I've been watching whenever I can.

Why didn't you tell me Torts was so complicated? UGH! There are so many what ifs...but then my professor S-U-C-K-S.

I've missed you. I'm glad you're back. I love that #1 is telling you he loves you!

Yay! My day is always improved with bullets from APL!

Also, just don't do labels.

Yay! You're back!

(FWIW, I agree with Lex about the ease of importing Blogger into Wordpress. I did it as an experiment with my work blog, and it was super easy. I'm too afraid of change to commit my main blog yet, but am seriously toying with it. And if you change your mind, your Blogger blog is still intact.)

I am thinking of canceling Netflix, too, but not because I am not watching the films. It's because I heard Netflix is run like a sweatshop. That's how they get the movies out so quickly!

Delurking to say how much I LOVE Cherry Coke Zero too!

Hope you get some more sleep soon!

so I've lost my Netflix friend! But I'd rather read your blog :).

Hope sleep and good health become frequent guests at your home.

Welcome back! I keep thinking about signing up for netflix but then I think better of it because I'm not sure how many of the movies I'd get around to watching. I am a big cable junkie -- in addition to my extensive tv viewing, I have movies on HBO, IFC, Encore, etc. to keep me happy.

(although I will watch many of them again and again if they're on cable. Why do I watch "Shopgirl" every time it's on? LOL.)
