ja mei!

That means something like "bloody hell" in Bavarian and I'm saying that because %+#%$ Blogger just ate my huge Oktoberfest post! I think I'm going to scream.

Must go do housework now. More Oktoberfest later. Stupid Blogger.

Just to make you scream a bit more...The correct Bavarian pronunciation is "Ja, mei". It is a misconception of a lot of non-Bavarian that it's pronounced 'jo'.

'Ja mei' doesn't really fit here, since 'Mei' is actually short for 'Mein Gott'...and 'Ja mei' is actually used in a defeated ne Art verbales Schulterzucken halt.

An expression that would actually fit here would be: 'Herrschaffdsdonna! SaggradĂ­ noch a mal!' ;)

That's why...I always write my posts in Word, and then copy/paste them into Blogger.

Fool me once,'t get fooled again.

I know, Sal, I know. I used to think Blogger was my friend, but I've sure learned my lesson now. In the future I'll be cozying up to Word.

ensurt - you have a blog! Excellent. I'm checking it out now.

Blogger is having some MAJOR issues today and it started last night (at least that's when I noticed). It won't allow any photos to be uploaded (the html code never appears after clicking the DONE button), and it's giving this wierd sign-on screen in the middle of a post. I had to try about 4 times to get a post up, because when you click "save as draft" it just wipes out all information. That sucks so much, to spend time writing a post and then lose it.

Bummer Christina! I hate that!

Crystal I was tearing my hair out Saturday night when Blogger kept eating my five picture post! What was I doing blogging on a Saturday night? Husband was at a party and I was home sick. So I was cranky enough without Blogger adding to my woes.
