The Dingo Ate My Baby! (And Blogger Ate My Comments)


5:00 AM. My bedroom. Me. Sound asleep. (A rare and precious thing)

Buddy Boy tiptoes in, climbs onto the bed and lets loose the song in his heart.

“D-I-N-G-O! D-I-N-G-O! D-I-N-G-O! And Dingo was his name-o!!”

Oh yeah! More obnoxious than any alarm clock I’ve ever heard. But something about the substitution of the D for the B made it all a little hysterical – even at that hour. And in that early morning fog, my response was, “But the dingo ate my baby!!” The reference was completely lost on Buddy Boy, but since I screamed it at the top of my lungs in my best Aussie accent, he busted up laughing. Not a bad way to wake up after all.

I got the kiddos ready and out the door early, I was pretty sure it was going to be a nice productive day…until I got home, checked the blog and realized that Blogger had eaten over a dozen of the comments on my giveaway post. And, since I’d already deleted the comment emails from my inbox, well, I was a little unhappy. How was I going to do my giveaway when the comments were…gone!?!? So, I wasted a few hours trying to figure that out and got nowhere. Fortunately, the comments reappeared yesterday. Now, if only I could get my kids to stop screaching, “The dingo ate my baby!!!”

Oh, and if you're wondering wtf I'm talking about, here you go (minute mark 3:39).

And if you haven't entered my giveaway - today's the last day.  So go here and tell me what's bugging you.

Only you would come back with "the dingo ate my baby". That's classic :) You have to know that DINGO is going to be playing over and over in my head all day now. Thanks for that :P

Blogger has been acting so weird the passed month or so, lots of people seem to be having trouble, I couldn't upload photos for days
:(

and a few have quit :(

You always make me giggle, Denise, I knew exactly what you meant it is one of my fun things to say (yep, I am going to be a crazy old lady who spouts ridiculous and inappropriate comments at random times, YAY! for CRAZY OLD LADY.

Have a wonderful weekend, :) T.
