Well, that was charming.
All of a sudden — for no reason that I could discern — Facebook decided I was not allowed in. My password did not work.
THREE TIMES did I jump through hoop after hoop to get their effing machine to send me a new temporary password. THREE TIMES the damn thing didn’t work, or when I did get in and attempted to create a new password for myself, it didn’t work.
So. I guess I’m permanently off of Facebook
That’s probably a good thing, actually. One fewer way to waste time.
And waste time I do: copiously. Mostly on this dayum computer. Really: I’ve blown the entire day sitting here in front of this thing. Watered a few plants, entered some data in Excel, and…and…that was it.
What else could I have done?
- It’s after 9 p.m. The sidewalks have no doubt cooled enough for Ruby to walk on them. She and I could have gone a mile by now. Or even two.
- It’s still plenty hot out there, though. I could have jumped in the pool and got this chunk of exercise by swimming.
- I could have written a blog post. 😀
- I could have started working on the proposed project to record my father’s family history.
How is this a disaster?
Not exactly a disaster, but a real inconvenience. The neighborhood organization has a Facebook page where they post frequently and cogently. Not being able to see and participate in that puts me on the outside. And that does pi$$ me off royally.
And I use(d) Facebook to plug new posts as they appear here at Funny. Anyone else who would like to do that now is welcome to do so!
So the Hell What?
Good question. I do have another computer and may be able to log in on that. Probably not, after the flap I’ve made trying to get in from the laptop. But it’s worth a try.
