I posted this last night, but it seems to have disappeared by this morning! Perhaps the Blogger gods are censoring anti-Blogger posts?
Thanks for the birthday greetings, everyone!! I really appreciate you all stopping by, and especially you lurkers for coming out of the closet and wishing me a happy day.
This was Blogger's fine birthday present to me:
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to process your request at this time. Our engineers have been notified of this problem and will work to resolve it.
I couldn't leave comments on my own damn blog!!! Did I ever happen to mention that Blogger sucks?
Anyway, I had a lovely day. Went out for a 2 1/2-hour bike ride (so I rode 49 kilometers and then some), took a nice long afternoon nap, and (thanks to our Most Excellent childminder) had a wonderful dinner out with my husband at the local French bistro!
Tomorrow we're going flying. Yes, all of us. It should be exciting - if Blogger permits, I'll post photos. (It sounds like I'm entreating favors from a vengeful, capricious god, doesn't it?) Maybe I'll run 49 * 100 meters or swim 49 laps tomorrow, if there's time. Or both.
