Oh, She's Blond, too.

Just now, our daughter walked over to the sliding glass door and looked out. I asked her what she was doing. She said, "I heard something cracking." I replied, "That was your sanity." In all seriousness, she looked back at me and said, "No, it was outside."

Uh ha, Uh ha.

From Rants and Raves to Highlights!

So we got hacked - irrevocably hacked - early in April. The hackers got me through my Facebook account and from there took my Gmail accounts and Yahoo accounts, sending out emails to everyone on my contact list and then cleaning out my lists. What a pain! We thought we had cleaned it up and fixed everything when we found that our old gmail account had somehow been directed to a porn chat site. The avatars were disgusting and graphic. Right at that moment, we decided to completely ditch the gmail account. We had to! I mean, we were so glad that Sweet Girl wasn't the one who found it.

Right away, I created a new gmail account and it has not been accessed on the home computer yet. Only the laptop. Next up, we have to wipe the home computer and re-install everything. Then I realized that I would be losing my blog. I've tried to think of any way to avoid losing it, but I realized that as soon as I disable our old gmail account, I would lose "Rants, Raves and Revelations of the Blond Girl". While the loss is lamentable, I am ready for a bit of a change. So I have a new gmail account, and a new blog. Welcome to "Highlights of The Blond Girl"!

I went through my old blog and from 434 posts, I retained 167, moving them to this blog. Now I have a new canvas upon which to create - and that is what I am hoping to do... create again.

My dearest friend, Geekwif, is making a new template for me. And whooo boy, am I looking forward to it! Soon, Blond Girl, soon...

A Total Rant

just want to go on record as saying that today totally sucked.


1. Back injury. Physical Therapy. Pain. 'Nuff said.
2. My FB account got hacked.
3. Then they hacked my Yahoo account.
4. And erased all my contacts.
5. THEN they hacked my Gmail account.
6. AND erased all the contacts, there, too.
7. My husband worked for hours to get them back. During this time we got about 30 calls and emails from friendly folks whose computers were under attack from our computer because we got hacked.
8. Then our daughter came home in pain
9. So we took her to the doctor. Ear Infection.
10. We came home and my family tried the chocolate creme brulee that I made for the first time. I did it right. They didn't like it.
11. THEN Facebook disabled my account for the whole hacking episode and I didn't even do anything wrong!

Uh huh. SUCKED!!!! I'm going to bed. Let's see how I can mess that up.
