For Ariel

All my life
              I yearned
                            for a dog.
I wished on stars,
       birthday cakes
              eyelashes
                     pennies.
Now, the warm form
       of my complete life
              snores in her sleep
As her feet run
              after dreambunnies.

Happy BELATED anniversary!
I'm still working on the translation - that is the reason for my not posting. Bit I can't keep myself from going here, and there, and over there, too. To visit my virtual friends.
I used to have a dog and I like these dog evoked poems of yours.

I ahve just switched to the new version and my blog has disappeared - the old address does not seem to work, that is. I can manipulate it behind the scenes, but it is unavailable for the public, including me.
Any idea anyone?

I'm sorry for the whining, but it's either that my blog is not found or yours or some other people's, and my name is messed up again, due to some Hungarian characters of the alphabet and your (read: those who comment) names disappear in my comments... Now I don't know which comment came from where. Arrgh. I'm so fed up with it.
Sorry to let it out here...

You're right, it gives a really weird error... Look at how it puts your name on the third comment - that too is weird. Have the Blogger people gotten back to you yet?

Well, my name in the 3rd comment is due to my and myself alone :)
I changed it to see how it affects the Hungarian characters.
As in some of my earlier comments, they were turned into some horrid malformations.
It (my changing my name) had no effect of whatsoever on earlier comments so I changed it back.
I will whine about those horrible 'innovations' in a post I'm so pissed off. But it's still free-so what am I to expect?

Plus I can not comment on ANY site I want. I hope it's a temporary thing. I AM sorry, Anniina.

*cuddles* Send Google a really mean email, to make them fix it. Tell them your adoring public cannot be without your blog for an extended period of time!

Hey, my blog is on, the problem is that it is not as easy to use as before.
For example the program thinks I am not the same person as I've been 5 minutes ago so I have to sign in over and over again.
In the old system one check in made it for the whole day.

Is there maybe something in the "Options" where you can extend the length of time to remember you?
