I did it, I really did it. Some 100+ posts later I am finally caught up with everyone's blogs. I am never taking off 2 1/2 weeks from the blogosphere again!
I was told by a blond lawyer that were I to award a Bloggie this month (which I will) that in fairness I had to read every entry that I missed on everyone's blog. To that lawyer I now can say that not only have I read every entry, but that her blog took me over an hour to read. You really should write books girl!
Anyway, during the course of reading I posted an occasional comment here and there and many times came across the dreaded "Word Verification" functionality. I myself employ this functionality on my site thinking that it in some way it makes it more safe.
In fact, it can often times can be extremely frustrating and increasingly annoying. Is it just me or are there days when the words are absolutely in no way, shape, or form legible to the human eye? I found myself numerous times looking at the screen thinking, "maybe it's an L, could be a K......wait.....wait.....is that a lower case J? I think it just may be!" only to have my patience tested when the word is rejected upon submission.
I swear there are days one needs a Urim and Thummim to decipher the cryptic signs of Word Verification. And so today, I am setting this blog free....free from the ambiguity....free from the frustration....free from the need to enter random letters.
I feel like I need a video clip of Mel Gibson yelling "Freedom!" from Braveheart.
