Yes, I am loving this new WordPress site.
Except…for that one thing. Well, there are two. Maybe three things. But nothing that can’t be fixed. Here’s the first thing that causing me some blog-sog: I didn’t anticipate first that I would not be able to use Clustrmaps. It requires Java, which is a Plug-in, etc. I remember from my other blog, which is a cousin of WordPress, those things were easy as creampie. (DON’T LOOK THAT UP.) I know that if I get my own domain/website up and running, I’ll be able to do anything I like. Anything, yes, even become MASTER OF MY DOMAIN. The thing is about ClustrMaps is I knew where some of my very best Azerothian friends live, or relatively (I’m not a stalker peeps), and it was incredibly comforting to know that Chicago, Minneapolis, or Denver stopped by. WordPress shows me in broad geographical strokes who came knocking, and I feel oddly and forlornly disconnected. Yes, I realize that makes me a dork in the truest sense of the word. Those little dots on my map weretlike a little postcards of thought, like a Hershey’s Kiss. This writing thing – really – what good is it if I only write for myself?
Now, I need to make some analogies obvious: the reason why that image of the poor old lady up there looking frustrated at her computer is because she represents my inner oldy-ness. Years ago I would have handily figured out how to make my own domain/etc. But in a long marriage, one of the secrets to success is delegation. (You don’t think technology and marriage are related? You would be wrong.) Ergo, ipso facto, carpe diem – I have relegated all things tech to CD Rogue, who, coincidentally DID get a new job, and is in a jungle with one of our cubs on a trip far, far, away, and when he gets WiFi sends me sweet texts about monkeys stealing food from tourists and drinking cervezas. Wait, he’s drinking the cervezas, not the monkeys. Stupid monkeys. Anyway – the trip and the job also are complete non-sequiturs, so sue me. So while trying to find a funny meme to post for this week’s OLRG informational post, I came across some disturbing phrases that, of course, being of an inquisitive nature, researched. Now my word bank, albeit richer, is now much, much dirtier. I know Urban Dictionary provides more information than necessary, but et tu, Wikipedia? With the images? Dios mio! Oh well. All of this is a LONG way around to basically say – my friends– be patient with me. Please let me know you’re still there. Please. I have to wait until CD Rogue comes home and then about another week before he’ll be ready to give my website his technical attention. I cannot believe I can’t figure it out by myself, but I don’t want to. But when he does set it up, you’d better believe I’ll be watching over his shoulder.
So OLRG: this Saturday we’re starting a little earlier so PlaidElf has more time. Amerpriest wants to go to Naxx, was it? Ulduar?Anyway, still have some dangling achievements al over the place, which are a lot like dangling modifiers. Both of which still confuse the hell out of me.
3PM Pacfic/Firelands/Ulduar/something current?
Oh, and I bought this:
I don’t even like rum – but that name! Someone may be answering why is the rum always gone…cause a monkey took it.
