Seething Cakes of Hatred

Making pancakes, as I learned at AP's birthday bash at the beach this weekend, is an unbelievably tedious chore. I don't know why I...

The Harbinger

Things aren't looking good for Hot Toddy's Toaster Oven.

For some reason, Blogger is unable to switch this blog to the new version. But accessing the old login page is becoming more and more difficult. Today I spent 20 minutes trying to bypass the invitations to switch to the new blogger, but I couldn't get to the login. I read the Help articles and forums. I used the links that Blogger claimed would take me to the old login screen, but I just kept getting a message asking me to switch to the new version. So I gave in and tried to switch again today, even though I knew it wouldn't work. After attempting the switch, I just received a message letting me know I couldn't switch at this time, and I'd be notified when I should try again. But every time I tried to access the old login, I was taken to a message inviting me to switch.

And on and on...

It makes me wonder if I really want to blog badly enough to go through this.

Starting over with a new blog host seems overwhelming and tedious.

I feel like giving up, and I don't even feel despair or frustration about it. It is like, in some ways, life would be easier if I no longer had a blog to maintain.

Then again, I've done this for years and have met some great people (and a couple complete jerks) through this blog. At home I have a multitude of half-empty journals that I've abandoned, but I've managed to keep up with the Toaster Oven for years.

I want to quit. But I also don't want to be a quitter. I'm not sure I can have both.

I just found you through Scott-O-Rama. You can't quit on my first day of reading you. Give it another year or two and then rethink it.
