The Dreaded Word Verification
The dreaded word verification.
You know what I'm talking about. It's that little square that comes up after you have written a comment on someone's post. There is something about that, that drives me crazy-er. It's just a minor inconvenience. It's just the fact that sometimes they write it so blurry or "squiggally" (new word) that I end up having to type it in more than once.....sometimes more than twice. Once I think I had to write it in 3 times but I don't think I've ever had to do it four times. What is even worse is when you copy the word incorrectly and your comment erases. Remember, my attention span isn't quite what it should be. My first comment may be full of compliments or funny responses, then it erases when I mess up the word verification....by then not only have I forgotten what I wrote, but there is a good chance that I have even forgotten what I read! You know what happens then.....the notorious "Nice Post" comment. hhmmmm....that made me think of The Notorious Missionary in Spain. Notorious comment....Notorious Missionary..... I haven't visited her in a while. I think I'll pop over there after I'm done here.
Where was I? Monkeys are funny.
Oh yeah. Anyway, as much as I dislike the Word Verification, it looks like I am going to have to enable it on my blog for a while. It seems that I have a new "blogger buddy" straight from, um, straight from, er, straight from a county that doesn't speak English. China or Japan maybe? I don't know.
As much as I enjoy new readers, somehow, I don't think this individual is actually reading my posts. Granted, quite often many of you don't "get" my posts.... usually because they may not be "getable" (another new word). But a least you understand the words. (even when I use words like squigally and getable).
Also, there is something about this individuals comments that make me think that we really won't be following his/her blog either. Perhaps I get that feeling because of the fact that the comments usually read something like...
Chinese symbols for about one or 2 lines...then the word PARTY in English, followed by more chinese symbols.
Do you think....Is it possible...could it be....Canned Corn Beef? Or even worse....SPAM!!
ANYWAY, I will be adding the word verification to my blog for a week or so. Then I'll remove it and see if I was able to get my blog off of this individuals mailing list..... actually, CK, could you do it for me?
SO, bear with me....or monkey with me??
Chow! (as in Chow Mein)
