Shithouse rat

I'm a bipolar writer in the Naked City. I'm not playing with a full deck. I don't have all my dots on the dice. My cheese is sliding off my cracker. I don't have both oars in the water. I'm a bubble off plum. In other words, I'm crazier than a shithouse rat. These are my stories. Comments--short or long, nasty or nice--always welcome!

Just one more brief note about my list 'n' link obsession:

I just figured out that the best way to view the older posts is to click on the last (bottom) "Previous Posts" link list on this page. This will open a new page with all the links to the older posts. Perfect it's not--but it's the Blogger's way and I have to respect its idiosyncrancies for the time being.

Hey H and J:

Um, I'm glad you came to the blog, added a hit to my site meter, and posted a comment so my poor little piece has a Comments: 1 next to it. I don't have many guidelines for commenters, but here's some sternly worded suggestions for those who want to plug their blogs:

A comment should ideally be related in some conceivable way, shape, or form to the post at hand.

Try to make your comment a full sentence or longer. Acceptable examples include:

I agree that bipolars are people too. Thanks for making the world a more loving place. By the way, visit my blog. It's totally awesome.

You suck. Your writing is full of cliches and generalizations and lacks depth of any kind. My blog can kick your blog's ass. Go immediately to I'mthe bestbloggerever.

So nice...I ask for SO little....

How about "Blog-o-illogic"?

I have just discovered that I cannot use Blogger properly with IE 5.2 on Mac. I have been procrastinating on experimenting with Safari, but I have since discovered that I must now immediately switch to Safari.

The reasons are highly technical, but it's summed up by saying, "Thank you Bill Gates for fucking up my Macintosh computing experience, once again."

Blackie, I'm going to absorb some of this adventure in my normal head-scratching mode. New stuff always has an illuminating quality to it. I can't say I know all the jargon, but I never did mind just saying "I don't know". Still looking for the info-pipeline that signals a green light. BLLB

I am still having a lot of probs with Blogger. Just for instance: I was quite alarmed the first time I updated a previous post, and came back to the site to find it gone, gone, gone! I wailed and moaned and gnashed my teeth verily. But I soon learned that you just have to re-publish, rinse, and repeat until it reappears. Conversely, sometimes if you wait awhile your corrected post will come back--poof!

Dont' even get me started--that's just the tip of the iceberg. But I do love Blogger anyway--kind of a love/hate thing going on.

BLLB: Better a head-scratching mode than a head-shrinking one! You're talking to an expert here...been there, done that.

Wow Blackie, you sent a comment to my comment-neat! I'll stick to a head-scratching mode for now. Let's do this again sometime! BLLB
