Not that I've exactly been posting like a demented fiend lately, but I thought I should do the courteous thing and tell you that we'll be away this week. In point of fact, I've been posting so infrequently recently that you probably won't notice any difference. But when you've been blogging for more than five years, you do sometimes run out of steam. While there's an outside chance that I might shake up my gray matter enough to compose post while away, the internet is both slow and tenuous where we'll be staying, so don't hold your breath for my usual pearls of wis. Eh?
But I will take the time to tell you that Nikki Dee has rallied quite well and is almost back to her normal rambunctious self. Both she and Zach will be missed by the Buppa this week.
Meanwhile, permit me to leave you to contemplate this tiny little annoyance that I have with this wonderful service that we fondly refer to as Blogger.
By "tiny annoyance," I refer to the kind of comment box shown above. It appears on some of the newer blogs.
You see, when it pops up, there is no cursor in the word verification box. So, I am forced to reach for my mouse and click in the box before I am able type my comment. Why the cursor doesn't default to the box, I know not. Perhaps it would make life too easy for us?
Then, when I've finished composing my incredibly witty yet trenchant comment, I just want to hit the ENTER key but can't. No, I must relocate my mouse, grab it, point to the POST COMMENT box and click. Why can't I just press ENTER?
While I'm not losing sleep over this, I really do think that an application by the mighty Google leviathan should not be so cumbersome. Really, I do.
