Looking Good In Black and Blue

by Venomous Kate

I’ve been banging my head against my desk for much of the past 12 hours thanks to all kinds of site weirdness. You probably think I’m exaggerating, but I’ve got a bruise on my forehead to prove otherwise.

It began when I installed the BadBehavior plug-in to stop some of the spam bots that swarm all of my sites. Not that I don’t find reading about naughty Asian girls, camel toes and naked grandmas fascinating, but I’d rather do it at some other website if you know what I mean.

If you were unable to leave a comment here or at any of my other blogs over the past day, I apologize. Things seem to be working well now, with the exception of ChubbyMommy.com. There, I’d been running the blog out of a subdirectory but wanted to move it to the /public_html/ location.

Let me just warn you: that’s not as easy as it sounds when you’ve been running your blog as an add-on domain sharing hosting space with your other blogs. Or maybe I shouldn’t have tried to do it after only 4 hours of sleep and a really, really crappy day.

Either way, 4 of the 5 blogs are working just hunky dory now. ChubbyMommy.com is up and running again, but at some point I’ll need to tinker with the templates (I restored them from an old version). But not tonight.

Tonight, VH and I get to go out for a Parents’ Night Out, something we haven’t had an opportunity to do since late October. That night only lasted a matter of minutes since I sprained my wrist by falling off my high heels.

Needless to say, I’m wearing flats tonight.

  1. Flats. Good.

    The second of five sprains of my left ankle happened wearing 3″ heels and trying (unsuccessfully) to walk across a graveled parking lot. This was during my martini drinking phase. It’s a large part of the reason I don’t drink martinis anymore. They are just like really good tasting water to me.

    Needless to say my left ankle is a mess…

    I really hope your wrist is better than my ankle.

    Have a good time!

  2. You keep chuggin’ VK. It could be worse. Really. We had a neighbor who thought it would be a good idea to take a Spring Break vacation some years ago. Her family booked a beach house down on the Gulf of Mexico. They trundled off. Of, did I mention that she was pregnant? Very pregnant. And she was/is of small stature, so her center of gravity was all off. You know that beach house’s are on stilts, right? As in staircase to get to the house part.

    Day one: she tumbles down the entire flight of steps and sprains one and ankle and breaks the other.
    Day two: doctors confirm that ankles are as good as they’re gonna be for a good while and that baby is just fine.
    Day three: back home

    Did I mention that she was a good mommy and gave up smoking, drinking, and caffeine during the pregnancy? Did I mention that she was a little bitter not being able to move around?

    Falling off your heels should be easy!

  4. I’ll bet you looked great for the six minutes before your tumble. That’s what counts.

    Hope y’all had a nice night out.

  5. I agree, they’re too much like good tasting water. One of these days I really will learn not to drink them outside the confines of my own home.

  6. I’m surprised her doctors let her travel when she was that pregnant! Then again, the last thing I wanted to do when I was that far along was to leave my house, much less take a trip anywhere.

  7. Traffic, traffic, traffic, Chilli.

  8. We had a blast, actually. Even if this time my flats weren’t nearly as fashionable as my Ferragamos.
