(insert pithy rejoinder here)

Gosh A Damn…

Against my better judgement, I had a conversation with my mother about my bright idea to help her start her own blog. That may sound like a good idea, until you discover that this all happened long distance over the phone. Since misery loves company, I had the presence of mind to put her on speaker phone and record it all for you to hear.

Sadly, WordPress does not allow me to upload wave files, so you all will be deprived of nearly ninety minutes of my aural torture. Below is a video that recreates the experience as closely as I’ve been able to find.

  1. Please post the link to her blog when it’s live.
    Just so we can read your (presumably) exasperated but supportive comments!

    • Haha! You have no idea what you’re in for. My mother is without a doubt the kindest, sweetest, most effervescent person on this planet. So yeah, total polar opposite of me.

    • I wonder what she’ll say too, actually. I am going to start adding links to her blogroll and then have her click on them until she gets her bearings and can figure out where to go on her own. Yours will be at the top of the list, Archon, and not just because you’re an A.

  7. Dammit, why do I keep not seeing my comments appear? This is kind of annoying. It makes me spam your blog, and people are already saying they’re finding my comments in their spam.

          • The only thing I can think of is that Askimet is run by preschool children. Aside from, the Notifications thingy allows me to post comments pretty quickly, but every time I do, it gets spammed. If I go to the blog, I can usually get one in. Also, you said snatch. And pissed.
