stupid blogger and nasty snakes

I refuse to blog about Aidan's first day of Kindergarten or Dani's hilarious entry into 10th grade until STUPID BLOGGER DECIDES TO LET ME POST PICTURES AGAIN GRRRRRR THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS AND I'M SERIOUSLY ABOUT TO DUMP THIS STUPID FREE BLOG AND MOVE EVERYTHING TO TYPEPAD OR SOMETHING IF IT DOESN'T GET BETTER SOON.

Oh. my. Sorry about that.

Last week, Samuel L Jackson called me on my cell phone!
It was hilarious. He called me by name. "Hey Stacy. This is Samuel L. Jackson." He started off by telling me to go see his new movie "Snakes on a Plane." And that I needed to stop doing my housewife stuff, stop driving around in my 'Suburban Utility Vehicle', stop getting pedicures and chatting online so much and to GO TO THE MOVIES. He said he was gonna kick my butt if I didn't. He got really snarly at the end of the call. I was CRACKING. UP!

Funny thing was, the call came from my friend's cell phone. So I called her back and said, "Jerica! Weird thing. Samuel L Jackson just called me from your cell phone."

She busted out laughing. "Was that HILARIOUS or WHAT??" she asked.

You can send a phone message too. Just go to

Clever marketing, but it ain't gonna work for me. I never saw Anaconda or Arachnophobia, and I SURE ain't gonna see Snakes on a Plane! Nasty.

Regarding pictures: have you tried using Mozilla Firefox? When I can't upload pics, I switch from Explorer to Firefox and they upload without a hiccup. Got that tip from some blogger help site.
Just thought I'd share it in case you hadn't heard about that way to get around the problem.

Ooooohhhhh... thanks for the snakes phonecall tip!

My hubby is so snakephobic (I know there's a real word for that.... I'm just too lazy to look it up... which is *really* lazy since I'm sittin' here on the laptop anyway... Buh.)

Every time that movie trailer comes on he flips the channel. Once he made me COME TO THE CAR in the DRIVEWAY to get the lunch he'd sweetly brought home for me and the kids 'cause there was a rat snake slithering in front of his truck. So I had to walk around the snake to get my Taco Salad. Wuss.

Oh yeah. He's gettin' a call from Samuel L. today.

Stacy: I stopped trying to upload photos directly to blogger and I load them to photobucket and then load the URL. Every once in a while it doesn't work but mostly it does. The other good thing is if its acting wonky, you can open an old post and copy the html code and just change the name of the photo in photobucket and it works!! Give it a try!

Yeah Stacy, I've been uploading my photos to Image Event and posting them that way (Sometimes that doesn't even work - so I copy the image code from another post and then change the actual image location to the new image I want to use...which is why it took me an hour to do my Colour post the other day :sigh:)

I always upload to IE too... but it won't even take THAT anymore. I'll try the old code trick like y'all suggested... and I'll look into using something besides Explorer, too. It's about time I came out of the dark ages, eh? :)

Thanks for the tips, friends!
