Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Water for Dessert


At 16 minutes before 10 PM my wifey tells me, "If you hurry, you can make it to the grocery store and get us a creme cake!" Unplanned hurry at pre-10 dark 44 usually doesn't happen with this tired end of the day I-thought-this-wasn't-gonna-be-a-work-day-Sunday. After a collosal caloric consumption couple of blazed days, a cold bottle of water sounds like a good dessert right about now.

As I head off to sleep I see that the page reads for my blog are eleven away from 10,000. So I hope to wake up with the odometer in five figures.

zzzzzz zzz zzzzz zzzzzzz (get another dwink of water) zz zzzzz zzzz (dREaM) zzzzXzzzzzz (don't know what the deal was with that X interfering with my z's) zzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZzzzzz

I wake up to confusion from Google. Their normal simple report embedded in Blogger isn't working at first so it directs me to a different web site which shows the number of page views as 11,009 vs 9,990 AND my earnings aren't the same, with one report showing $1.94 and the other showing $1.55, so I have no idea which one is correct,

Then I realize that part of the problem is that its a complete report for my entire account, I have forgotten that I have made a few cents more from my cartoons, artwork, Kakuro game instructions, photography and my separate blog where I translate some of my writings to Portuguese. But there is still an extra 26 cents showing on their one report that I can't find elsewhere.
*slight un-sigh*

Ahhhhh, I finally discovered most of my lost coinage, I found 25 cents earnings from the Portuguese language blog, so perhaps I can afford that creme cake soon.
*complete un-sigh*

Update: I'm at 9,999 at 11:34 AM for my writings in the English language version of my blog!

Checking a few minutes later the page view counter reached 10,004 so someone from either France or the USofA was my 10,000TH page viewer!!!
*complete un-sigh accompanied by a smile*
