It’s 1am

Remind me to not upgrade WordPress on a school night.  At least I finally FINALLY fixed the broken photography link in the menu above. And to bed I go, battered and bruised by technology.

Giving Up on Blogrolling

I tried to be patient, but it’s just not worth it. They got massively hacked last fall, it took six months for them to rebuild their site, and then they launched it, sort of. Kind of. Not all functionality works. If you don’t pay twenty bucks, whenever one of your readers clicks a link, it […]

Wow, I Wonder What My Stats Will Look Like

Some hackers messed up my hosting company pretty good. As a result of their shenanigans, Google removed me from their listings. So now, even if you search for this site, you will not see any results from it. I have applied for faster reinstatement (they suspend the site for 30 days but if you fix […]

Where You Can Buy My Xmas Presents

Wowee! I’m in heaven! Okay, one of the Dump regulars is a certified USB genius. Without him, apparently, we would not be able to plug in and power up LED Christmas trees, which would make the world a much more horrible place. I post this link for him, as he mentioned wanting the coffee cup […]

I’m Here! I Swear!

Oh God I hate when I try to do something and it doesn’t work properly and that causes another problem and I don’t see it so I don’t know to fix it and I get news that some people think my site has been down since Saturday. It hasn’t been. That was operator error. I […]

Twitter Twitter, Tweet Tweet

I set up an account on Twitter a little while ago. I’ve not said very much over there, because I realized that nobody, not even Mr. Dump, had subscribed to my Tweets. I don’t feed too badly about it, because I can be frighteningly mundane. However, I have an application on my iPhone that makes […]

Hey, if you’re over on Facebook, feel free to join the Fans of the Big DumpTruck group (do a search people – I want you to put some effort into this, okay? That will prove your fan-dom.) I cannot pretend that we’ll end up with as many members as, say, the Fans of High School […]

The Champions

Yes, yes indeed, gas hit a new high today. Thank you CNN. Did you not hear what I said yesterday? Am I just whistling into the wind over here? Sheesh, it’s like a girl can’t change the world just by writing about it and posting it to her website. I have 60-100 hits a day, […]

Minimal? Well That’s Good News

I was on the Accuweather website just now, looking to see if rain is expected to mar Junior’s 2nd playoff baseball game tonight. I happened to scroll down past the important (to me) information and spotted the following table. What struck me as amusing is that they just aren’t completely ruling out any of the […]

Autographs, $5 Each

Okay, all the cool kids probably knew this, but I’m a Hall of Famer. I’m a rock star. I’m a goodness-to-gracious web celeb. CMonks added me to his Hall of Fame over at Utter Wonder today. This is the moment I’ve been dreaming of ever since I realized that you can’t be Miss America if […]
