Freaking Blogger issues!

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone. Apparently, Blogger decided to commemorate the occasion a day early, by experiencing an epic FAIL all day yesterday and into today as well. Blogs disappeared, blogs came back. Blogs could be read but not commented to. Comments disappeared then came back. Blog came back but entries disappeared. And so on.

I was getting messages from concerned friends, wondering if my blog had been zapped. I assured them (once I figured out what was going on) that it was Blogger-wide and not just mine. It was unnerving at first, though. I mean, some of our fellow bloggers have been summarily dumped lately, so that was my first thought.

The story is, they were doing some routine maintenance on Wednesday and the system got corrupted somehow. So they were doing various tests and repairs yesterday. As it stands now, it seems all the blogs are back, but recent entries have gone missing. They say they're restoring them along with the comments. I won't hold my breath, but at least we're back.

Anyway... if you read my entry about my adventures in book cover creation, that is no longer an issue -- the lovely Zelle has offered to design my cover for me. Thank you to Stan/E. as well for making the same offer, and to others who sent me links to designers. I love how supportive our community is!

And thank you to Chross for putting my Spanking Court report on his list this week. :-)

I'm feeling quite peaceful today. My life, at this moment, is calm and drama-free, just the way I like it. My screwy brain tells me to look over my shoulder and anticipate what unpleasantness may be rolling my way, but I refuse to listen. Stinking thinking.

Regarding the black-and-white photoshoot from a couple of weeks ago, the photographer took some impromptu shots of me with my clothes on as well, just for the hell of it. Here's my favorite:




















"Hey, lookie -- it's me!" :-D  Yes, I know my computer monitor is an antique. I don't have a flat-screen TV, either. Sadly, I haven't got the $$$ to upgrade things when their old versions are still working perfectly well.

So, welcome back, Bloggers! I felt very disconnected from y'all yesterday. Have a great weekend.

  3. I'm sure Zelle will exceed your expectations, she is amazing.
    That is one of my all time favorite pictures of you, even if your lovely bottom isn't dispayed...;)

  5. Isn't technology a wonderful thing? I'm so glad that you worked things out with Zelle, since you are so compatible and of like mind.

    I'm experimenting with new technology (making the switch from PC to Mac). My brother gave me an incredible 50th birthday gift: a brand, spanking new iMac and iPad (along with a one-on-one technical support package). Is that wonderful, or what? Well, it's certainly bound to keep me occupied for a while and preventing me from spanking cravings. My big fear is that I'll never be spanked again, LOL.

    I'm so excited for you. There are so many good things happening in your sphere of the world, and I'm sure that you deserve them all!

  9. Erica,

    That is a wonderful picture of you. I love it. I am happy that you are relaxed and feeling better about things.

    I am relieved that the blog is back and working again at least for now and hopefully fixed so this doesn't happen again. Glitches happen. It is the "corrupted" part that gives me the hebbie gebbies, if you know what I mean. That can mean many things, like hacked. Then it could just have been some funny little glitch that messed things up.

    I am so happy that Zelle is going to help you with you book cover. That is really very nice of her and I can hardly wait for this to come out. You guys rock!

  10. Lea -- it seems the posts reappeared, but not their comments. Ah well...

    Poppy -- you know I hate change, but should it become necessary, I know who to contact! Thanks. :-)

    Bobbie Jo -- yeah, anything can happen. I don't think the whole system could get hacked, but what do I know. I'm just glad we're back! I felt like I was going through withdrawal.

  11. Erica,

    You probably WERE going though withdrawl.

    Does the beautiful bionic butt ever feel sore to sit on after a hard spanking? In other words, is your butt still vulnerable despite its famous tenacity about not showing its vulnerability? :)

  15. I'm plenty squirmy on the drive home after a weekend party, or after a shoot. But I've never reached a point where I can't sit. I tend to think that if I ever had that degree of discomfort, I'd have to have sustained a great deal of damage... which I don't want. :-)

    Indeed, "I Can't Sit Down" is most often a Kiss Me Kate protest of indignation than of actual inability to sit. I was merely inquiring if spankings do in fact get through to the bionic butt and evidently they do :)
