AOL is cleaning house and the blogs are outta here! My dust bunnies, the Oompas, everyone, everything... POOF! Gone!
So tell me again, what does AOL stand for? I knew when I first signed up eons ago. It was 'America OnLine' or some such silliness like that. Well, they are systematically kicking America offline, whittling away at the services or products as they call them, until there will be nothing left but advertisements.
Oh, I get it... Advertisements On Line! That's what the acronym stands for! Well, that's about right because with the cut back on chat rooms and message boards and the pending deletion of Journals, Hometown and Pictures then all they have to offer is e-mail laced with tons of ads... and nobody to read them.
Pity. I shall miss those silly pop-ups.
I've already gone over to Blogger, clicked on the <forgot password> link because I don't think I ever knew it, and found a couple of blogs I forgot I even had. One was so old it even had dust bunnies so I already feel at home. Found a collection of my videos which was kind of cool so I'll be leaving that one alone. Unfortunately someone already has a blog called 'Letters To Gabe' so I had to get creative and find a new name. There is only one Dust Bunny Club Of North America though .
I shall miss this blog, but it's just a vessel. You can be sure the Oompas, Dickdidoo, the dust bunnies and I shall be raising a ruckus, fartin' up a storm and loving every minute of the time we spend tormenting each other in another corner of the blogisphere. I'll post our new address when we move in. Please stop by, we'll keep the light on.
BYOTP (bring your own toilet paper!)
And a box of chocolate truffles would make a nice blog-warming gift...
