'Round Midnight – UPDATED

Miss Ella of a Blue Sunday Evening:

UPDATE: So, I get an email, “Anchoress, why you blue?”

Oh, baby’s blue for many reasons, but I’ll write about them tomorrow because I’m too wiped out just now. Why am I wiped out, now? Because the long-awaited blogroller redesign was an epic fail by my lights, and so I had to simply sit down tonight and force myself to reconstruct my entire blogroll.

Was Mama happy? Mama was not happy. Mama is no code warrior. When I finished the job only to see all of my listings gobbed together like fat ants on a drop of italian ice, I had to actually use my own brain to deduct the coding error (which, surprisingly enough, I did deduce – try saying “I did deduce”; it’s fun), and then I had to repair each and every line.

I think I’m going blind! Too much screentime. Everything is white!

Also, I think the blog is usable on your end, but I’m still struggling with a few difficulties over here (like having to clear my cache before I do anything, anywhere, over and over again) does this tickle me? It does not! But I do have enormous trust in the brilliant techie who has been helping me. We shall overcome even the most recalcitrant code bugs! Or, he shall, while I whimper and moan and say, “can I go play?”

Mostly I am a little blue because I had hoped to “hit the ground running” once we ported me over here, and instead of a nimble leap, I have gone splat. I feel like I’m staggering when I wanted to soar.

But it will get better. I know it will get better. I believe, O Lord, hep my unbelief. Hep me, Lord.

Hep me!

Fine time for Him to get distracted!

Ah, me darlin’s tomorrow is another day. Let us all have a better one.

But if I have left you too blue, here is something to pick you up – the elegant Joe Williams!
