Grrr....

Oh, hell's no!

This "new" Blogger format can kiss my fat white ass! I just spent over an hour writing a post (about time, and how I don't have any), and it just up and disappeared. No warning or anything. Fckrs.
Ooh! There's a little gear thingy over on the right that allows me to go back to the old interface. Woohoo! Still...I wish it hadn't eaten my other post.


So... instead of getting to read me waxing poetic (and it really was a good post), you'll get the Reader's Digest version.

Big concert next weekend. Four hundred musicians. Eight hour days at the symphony office (after my day job). But I'm prepared, and thanking the good Lord I work with inanimate objects, and not the flaky musicians that others get to deal with. On top of this, I'm also the project manager for the big summer concert. So I'm working on two huge concerts at the same time (and trying to keep them straight...). Which means more 8 hour days in the office. Through mid-July. But I'll quote one of the college's administrator's comment to the symphony staff about the summer concert:
"We had a great meeting with Scott yesterday. In all the years that we have been doing this, Scott has done more by April 30 than most of his predecessors have done by June 30. We are pleased to work with him. He is doing a great job."
It's the little things like that which will keep me going in.

Sorry you don't get to see the original post. No time to rewrite it. Might touch on some of it when I do get the time. In the meantime, Happy Star Wars Day!

Either I am an idiot, or not very observant. I've heard several people curse the "new blogger interface" and I haven't noticed any difference.

Oh! And break a leg! Not literally ... I know how you can be with these things!

I too have lost posts but they seem to turn up where your list of your own posts are. All I know is that if I so much as blow on my laptop, something weird always happens.
OMG! I just re-read that.

Sending you lots of good thoughts for next weekend. I'm sure the concert will be a smash hit!

As for that new Blogger interface, I had a little look and decided to abort before my head exploded! (Why mess with something if it ain't broke?!) I'm hanging on to the old version until the dreaded day it's no longer an option. But one sure way not to lose a post is to write in TextEdit. I'm not so trusting...

New format?? Uh oh. Do I need to sign on with my computer to see what you're talking about?

The new format irritates me so much. But I hate the way wordpress is set up and changing over is just too much work so I'm sure I'll get used to it and hate it a little less eventually lol.
