I mean, last week I felt very blah and icky most of the day and this week I was cranky and tired (I even told my boss to kiss my ass; don’t worry, it was in fun and everyone laughed… Mom was so proud, she even said so, without being sarcastic!). It got better both days, and I managed to write some kick-ass (if I do say so myself) articles both times (yes, that includes today, even though I had little hope of accomplishment I think I pulled out a rather witty and actionable 805 words and a spinoff idea for another month!). What gives?
I’m exhausted now mostly because I spent the last almost-hour deleting spam users from the RA forums (I need to clean out the Barony one as well… eek!). I’ve now banned anyone using a .ru or .cn email address because that’s what most of the spam comes from and I don’t have a clue what gawab is but they’re banned, too! I’m trying a little experiment, however, to see if the email verification stops the spammers (since I doubt these email addys are real to begin with) without me having to manually delete each one. If it seems to work I may switch over the Barony to that and at least take some of the scut-work off of my shoulders.
Happy thought: tomorrow I’m wearing my new shoes 🙂 Palmie told me they were still selling at Zappos for $100 and I got mine for $35. Score on top of score!!!
