Tis the Season … to Grumble 7


I’ve been playing with my blog listing because I’d received a complaint that my page was loading slowly while blogger went out to get YOUR posts for MY list. Yeah, so not going to lose my 2 faithful readers because of that. Do you guys use that bloglist anyway? Does it need to be there for anyone else? Tell me. Please! *Edited* Okay, BlueSue pointed out I can limit the number of blogs it shows, so I’ve set it to 25 instead of the 41 I had on there. Want to make it on my list? Update your blog!

(And if you have problems loading either my blog or my webpage, let me know – send an email to Leah AT LeahBraemel DOT com although no caps are necessary.)

No, I haven’t sent my Christmas cards out yet – all three of them. Wait, I’m sending FOUR out this year, the rest I hand deliver. No, I’ve not started my Christmas baking. No, I haven’t got my vacuum fixed. And no, I haven’t done any more Christmas shopping this week. Though my shopping for Curly is just about complete, I haven’t got anything for either Guitar Hero or Gizmo Guy yet. GH is taken care of with a trip over to GP Bikes for a special item for his motorcycle. (He knows about it, so I’m not giving away any secrets here.) But GG. OMG. GG is the hardest man in the world to shop for because he already owns every gadget imaginable and if he sees one in the store he wants, he impulse buys it instead of coming home and telling me about it so I can buy it as a present. Plus I just got through finding something for his birthday so the idea pot is dry.

If you’re having problems figuring out gifts, or perhaps you’re already done your Christmas shopping and want to reward yourself with a little something extra, head on over to Angela’s Nice Mommy-Evil Editor blog again for today’s Holiday Hell Day 3 Contest.

    It doesn’t load slow for me. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Now the new EC site, that’s another story. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ve done nothing about Christmas and I refuse to feel a shred of panic. I don’t want to get old before my time!

    It doesn’t load slow for me either, and it’s raining here – which usually means a halt in electricity, traffic, web browsing capability and sanity. LOL! But nope, your loading a-ok. ^_^

    Doesn’t load slow for me… and yes, I’ve used it, plenty! Even found some new blogs to browse.

    Me. Christmas. Mess.

    Okay, that probably wasn’t aimed at me but should have been – I’ve updated my blog after a month away at the job from hell.

    I’m honored too, considering.

    Does everyone have a high speed connection -i.e., cable or dsl? It didn’t use to load slow for me but has since you started using that list updated. I have satellite though which isn’t as fast as dsl or cable by any means.
