Bridging the Gap

This post
Has been deliberately inserted
To bridge the gap
Between Tuesday and Sunday inverted
Monday’s post was due to appear
But the stream of consciousness had other ideas
The time was right but the words were wrong
But that’s no need to burst into dance or song
The gap is bridged, so all is fine
Continuity goes on and so does time…

Reduced Power

Eagle-eyed visitors may have noticed something recently that isn’t that apparent to those who are less eagle-eyed. Although having said that, those with eagle-eyes could be excused for missing it, all things considered.

You may have noticed in the last few posts simply words, no pictures, no featured images.

You may not have noticed either, considering out of the last three posts, only two of them contained words, and one had merely a picture. And this post too, is rather text heavy and slightly light on the old picture side.

We’re running on reduced power here at Beyond the Sphere at present. And yes, I’m well aware that some people will quip that there really isn’t much change there then (thank you person at the back there!) but I wanted to post my exc reasons.

I’ve been kidnapped by aliens, you see, and infected with some alien lurgy… and have very patchy internet in the cargo hold of their ‘luxurious’ space cruiser. When Mars gets in Earth’s way, there is no signal strength at all.

The clock going back has affected my equal librarian sending me completely out of whack with my immediate surroundings. Not that I could argue I was totally in whack to begin with, but right now I’m here and my whack is waaay over there.

After the work on the Bathroom was finally completed, I had dozens of teeth extracted, and I’m now in the process of having thousands of feelings. Yes, I did type feelings there, and although I meant fillings feelings came out. As they do. And when having a filling, I feel you really don’t want to feel feelings. Apart from the numbness wearing off hours after the operation(s) it(them)sel(f/ves). See. Equal Librarian. Out of whack. I blame Mars.

Something’s in Retrograde. I can feel it. I don’t know what, but I can just tell. Maybe it’s ‘cos I is upside down.

I also have a sniffle. Some may describe it as Man-Flu, but not I. ‘Tis a sniffle and it only hurts when I blow my nose. Which seems to be like all of the time at the moment, and with my nose being just above my feeling-filled mouth, I have a lot of different feelings to deal with in that area.

And they say men don’t talk about their feelings. I’ve waffled on about them incessentantly during this pictureless waffle. Ah well. Sometimes no pictures can be a blessing. You should see the shade of red on my hooter.

Not as red as in Mars red, which to me has always been more of a brown but who am I to argue with science, but almost as red as the red squiggly lines which highlight the words which Spellchecker thinks I have spelled/spelt incorrectly. Obviosuly, I haven’t, but Spellchecker doesn’t know that.

So, there we have it.

My exc reasons for working on reduced power at present. Obviously (well not obviously, obviously), normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, and posts around here will return to their usual technicolour greatness.

Alien spaceship wifi and missing whack withstanding, I shall be replying to comments and visiting soon. I feel like I’m always saying that.

It’s true, you know. It’s good to talk about your feelings.

I shall see you in the next post / comment reply/ YOUR blog soon!

Feel Good now!

Spammerty Spam Spam

My Spam Folder has only recently been cleared out… but not before I made a note of all of the comments to use in a future post! And guess what? This is the said post!

Hermes Birkin started things off with…

Also, love the fan art. I’m tempted to give it a go myself some time once I have a working monitor on “MY” computer again. My monitor died so I’m using my husbands computer and he doesn’t have the same art programs that I do on mine.

I did feel for Hermes Birkin, I really did. The post she left the comment on had nothing to do with art whatsoever, but she may have scanned a few of my other posts before leaving this message about her and her husband’s computer issues. They are very clever these spammers.

Cartier Love had this to say…

Awesome information, thank you very much for simplifying my search for good butter.

Erm. Ah. Yes. I see. I haven’t yet done a post on good butter although anything is possible.

Another Cartier, Cartier Circe this time, was enthusiastic…

Hi, I check your new stuff on a regular basis. Your story-telling style is awesome, keep doing what you’re doing!

I don’t mind comments like this, but the post it was left on was a photo post so it didn’t exactly fit.

Brak Gold said…

Ah, gosh, yours look so perfect! I made regular and ichigo daifuku the other day… They tasted great, but the texture was off, and they were hideous. I mean, really, they were…super ugly. The next day I made dorayaki with the leftover anko and they were…

I hesitantly did a quick search for ‘ichigo daifuku’ and with a sigh of relief discovered it was food:

They actually look quite good as well, being honest. I can only presume they don’t look the same as Brak’s, reading his/her comment.

Cartier Ring (I’m attracting a lot of Cartiers at the moment, aren’t I?) had a pressing question…

Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

Sorry Car – I can’t help you there. Have you tried doing a web search for it?

Hermes Luck (ooh look – another Hermes) couldn’t quite find the words for their question…

?????? ????. ??????????, ??? ? ?????? ???????? ?? ??????? ? ????????? ??????? ?????? ???? ????? ???????????. ?????????.

My answer, Hermes is __________ ________ ______ _________ _______ _______ _____ ___________ __ ___ ___!

Anony Manus asked…

Good afternoon. Tell me, how in the Yandex browser on the android in the favorites to create a folder? I would be very grateful. Thank you.

Good afternoon, Anony. With the what in the where now? Ah. I see. You have to turn the dial until you see the Luna Setting VIII, and wait for the screen to turn gold. Then, rapidly shake the device to drain all of the water.

Bvlgari Black had a technical suggestion…

Wow, this is amazing, I thought that my laptop was just getting ruined (as I do let my daycare use it often). I never would have thought of the nUM lock key changing the FN keys, maybe I should have considering lots of them are numbers ! Thanks so much…

You’re welcome Bvlgari. Anything to help.

Tesi Casdye had medical matters in mind…

Hi I have recently suffered from sinusitis and otitis media. I got sick on the 21 I was running a fever and all. By the 25th my fever had went away but my hearing was muffled so I went to the doctors he prescribed antibiotics and told me to take Zyrtec…

I hope you’re feeling better now, Tesi.

Mens Mond had a technical question…

sir, i am an engineering student. i want to charge 12V 1.2Ah lead acid battery using a source which produce an output of 20V, and current in the range of 10mA, so can i charge the battery? if i can then provide me with required cicuitary please

Dear Mens, can’t you work this out for yourself? I only use 12V 1.4Ah lead acid batteries.

Lars Peelpaper wanted to know…

Good afternoon. The question interests. I want to paint the car completely. Color xeralik. What water is waiting for me. I’ll paint myself and the first time. Do I need to mum and primed cars. Tell me please what should be the consistency. Thank you in advance.

Dear Lars, I’m very pleased you asked. I have been wanting to share this information for a while now. And using the Galacian term ‘xeralik’, meaning ‘general’, was a masterstroke! Firstly, however, you need to actually decide on a colour. Once you’ve done that, make sure the paint is sticky enough to stick. You don’t want it coming off after all your hard work.

Bvlgari Knockoff (these names are very familiar, aren’t they?) was very complimentary…

I love the website layout ! How did you make it. Its so cool!

Thank you, Bvlgari. It was off the shelf.

And finally, L Diamond had this to say…

?Your Post are gorgeous and useful.Thanks for sharing your good experience with us.You is an amazing artist! ????

Why thank you, L.

But he/she went on…

nice and wonderful tips,i really like this,thank you so much dear for sharing very useful details,keep up dear….

I’m trying to keep up, L, I really am. I have spam to read, and comments to reply to, and blog posts to write, and pictures to create, and photographs to take, and work, and eat, and sleep, and… and… yes. I am keeping up. But thank you for saying so.

And there we have it. The latest round-up of spam that I left to fester in my Spam Folder until it was automatically deleted. In the midst of all that, there were some genuine comments from regular visitors, who I rescued without a quibble. I’m kind like that!

Spam – pointless, but funny… on occasion!

Have you had any fun spam lately?


Gremlins on the Eve of Vampyre’s Day

On the night before Vampyre’s Day
All was calm, and quiet, I was about to say
I opened Live Writer to write my post
And was slightly shocked, to say the most
(That should have been ‘least’ but it didn’t rhyme…)

For some reason, my Live Writer this evening showed:

Instead of:

Which was most peculiar to say the least. I’m at it again. I closed it down, and opened it up again – exactly the same. I closed it down and opened it up again, and it was back to normal.

The weird alien-looking text didn’t even fit into the box like it should have. One thing is for certain, it wasn’t Arial! Very perpendicular!

Gremlins.

Of all the times to appear, it would be tonight!

Ah well… happy Vampyre’s Day to all who celebrate it. Happy Wednesday to those who don’t. And for all, just keep an eye out for those pesky Vampyres… you never know when they may just nip out for a bite!
