No soup for you

squirrel_1.jpgI finally got an answer from the uber-nerds at Squarespace (my host with the most). Here was their reply:

"We figured out the problem and you were right. Apparently we inadvertently blocked all blogspot.com domains! This has now been corrected."

Peachy. They can’t stop the spam for mail order Viagra, but they can block kindly folks like you from commenting. That’s the thing about technology. Looking for love in all the wrong places. And how was your day?

It was somewhat a human error, on this one. Blogspot accounts for approximately 30% of our spam, so it's always one step away from being totally blocked.

Unfortunately, we took that step by accident :( Sorry again about that.

Sniffs. And here I thought you didn't want me visiting any longer...

As long as you're not emailing me about Viagra it's all good.

Yea, Jamie...I thought you got a five book, seven figure book deal and left the rest of us in the dust...

Hugs on the tech problems, Jamie.

Trust me, if I had news like that I'd definitely share!

In reality, if I ever didn't respond online it's more likely that my dog chewed through a monitor cable or my son ralphed his SpaghettiOs on the keyboard.

*No actual squirrel was harmed in the making of this blog. (I used a stunt squirrel).

Ah! The light from yonder window doth shine... I've had a similar problem. Glad you got it solved though.

That explains everything. Here I was praying you'd gotten the 5 book, 7 figure deal.

Is that squirrel hopped-up on Viagra?

Rules of Nature

Dead squirrel + Viagra = funny.

OMG! I can post again.

I LOVED YOUR STORY. THIS POST IS FUNNY. ALL YOUR POSTS ARE FUNNY.

Sorry to be shouting, but I feel like I HAVE TO COMMENT IN ALL CAPS SO YOUR BLOG WILL HEAR ME AND LET THIS COMMENT GET POSTED.

I'm not paranoid. I didn't think that you'd suddenly decided you hated me and blocked me and my email and my URL and my grandma and...

sorry. I'm okay now.

And I'd typed up such a long, scary comment about my obsessions too. And obsessively tried to submit it maybe 5 times.
