Blogs and Dogs are Gits

Fuckety Fuckety bloody knob rot with cherries on top. I hate you BLOGGER! I hate you more than anchovies and olives!

Grrrrr. Yesterday I decided to try and update my blog layout to make it all fresh and flowery like Spring. It was an innocuous task that I had performed many times without any problems.

But this time it was different. Once the new template was installed, the commenting system (Disqus) instantaneously disappeared. Bastard with bollocks on.

Which meant that people could only comment on my blog using the 'Blogger' commenting system. And intially I was happy with that (as an interim solution) .... except that after ten hours or so, I realised that blogger wasn't actually publishing people's comments on my blog. Bloody shitty piece of bloody shit.

So. Two defunct commenting systems. Bloody brilliant. It made me so properly mad, that I threw a chunk of mild cheddar angrily onto my driveway.

Tomorrow I will have to waste my time farting around trying to fix some trite error in the software, in order to get the comments working again. Wank.

As if that wasn't enough, my patience was again truly tried today. During my lunchbreak, I grilled some chicken breasts that I intended to use in subsequent salads. Once they were cooked, I wrapped them carefully in foil, and put them on the side to cool. And then I jumped into the car to pick Izzy up from school.

By the time I got back, Naughty George had lived up to his rapacious reputation. The total bloody git. 

Pic.No.1 Naughty George looked sheepishly upon the remains of the grilled chicked breast (yep the git had nicked them and eaten every single last morsel)

Pic.No.2 Then he figured that if he wasn't actually looking at the evidence, then he couldn't possibly be construed as guilty

Pic.No.3 But the penny dropped - he realised that I wasn't falling for his thinly veiled ruses ......

Pic.No.4 So he tried to slink away without me noticing

Pic.No.5 And he hid in his basket, studiously not looking in my general direction

Pic.No.6 As if nicking, and eating the chicken breasts wasn't enough. NG spent the remainder of the afternoon pumping out guff after guff. His gaseous activity made my eyes water. He is a Git squared

So as you can see ...... my day has been pants thanks to my sub-standard mutt. It has also been shite because of Blogger. However, if you do know how to fix my commenting systems, please do get in touch because I haven't got a bloody clue. 

P.S. have you had any dilemmas this week?

  1. I thought you were going to kick Blogger into touch and switch to Wordpress?

    As for naughty George, what can I say but he is a mega hero, he did not chicken out of nicking your food!!!

    I know terrible joke but there you are....

  2. I see you got Disqus back.   See, if you'd just take the chicken off the bone and boil it nicely for him, he wouldn't have to steal it and then gas you out of the house.  ;)

  3. I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but I'm afraid your troubles aren't over - just wait until he starts hacking up that foil!

  4. I read this post aloud to Hubs and DoodleBug. I have to say, we got quite the laugh out of it! Poor NG! Tucker suggests you just giving NG the chicken so he doesn't have to deal with the foil . LOL

  5. Hey, it looks like you have Disqus back.  As for the Blogger comments....It gave us the message that you made it appear as if the  setting was on that makes it neccessary to  moderate each comment before it would be posted.  

    As to Darling George.  I am sure he was just not thinking clearly due to his state of hunger.  Look at his sweet face.  Oh Darling George, give Anne a nice little lick and tell her you are sorry.

  6. He certainly does shame very well.

  7. I love Naughty George!

  8. Yes, I noticed things had gone awry. Better now, though you still have all the comments from your last post missing.

    How to fix Blogger: get yourself over to Wordpress. Didn't Bren set it all up for you, already?
    How to fix Naughty George: can't be done. The dog is a git of the highest order.

    It's great to see that a) another mum is occasionally reduced to using language that would make the Chief fish wife blush and b) you didn't waste a decent bit of vintage 'knock your f*ing socks off' cheddar!

  11. Sorry Annie I know it isn't the done thing to laugh at others misfortune, but this post really made me laugh. Naughty George is a git indeed, but he is well worth it for the entertainment value. Those photo's of him are a study in doggy acting skills.

  12. Oh NAUGHTY George !  Fuckity Fuckity Fuck... and there was me thinking that yesterday was the first bloody time in friggin ages I could leave a comment on your blog in under ten minutes !

    Naughty George & my cat Billy would get on - stealing food & farting for England.

  13. Oh dear..you do sound quite cross!! ( and you are much better than me at the naughty words when totally pissed off..can I have lessons please? )  Love the pics of NG, I just want to give him a hug ..my Dillon would have done just the same, except that he can no longer jump to the kitchen worktops, thank goodness!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I bet that was a littlel inconvenient! An understatement perhaps, but you must be over it by now?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Dogs can't ignore food can they?  I used to share my home with an Alsatian, that thing would eat absolutely anything and one day ate a whole chicken.  I was not impressed as you might imagine.

    ReplyDelete
  16. How could you be upset with George?  The chicken on the counter was just calling his name.  Quinn (our beagle) would try the same (although, he does get a raw chicken leg for dinner every day).

  17. cool dog takes after my old Diz, oh your language darling is fucking outrageous lol!!

  18. Piccie number 1 is a classic.....I just love it......I'm sure you'd be able to hire NG out to film companies and retire on the income.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Must be working now...so...I can't stop laughing at poor snookie wookie letting out the royal whiffs...so funny! PS...you must feel  helluva lot better now letting out all your expletives in one post...deep exhale!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Poor NG! What's a dog to do?! Look at that face (now ignore the subsequent farts!) how can one stay mad for long?!
    I see you have the commenting system back Annie......forget to click something on?
    I love your vocabulary in this post! Are you sure you didn't grow up with me in the north end of Halifax, N.S. lol

  21. Okay I know that I should not really laugh at all your drama and trauma, but holy heck this made me laugh, from the title right through... I so love your dog!!! GIT!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh wow, no eye contact?  Naughty George is so, so guilty and so very naughty.  You must have been peeved to launch a piece of perfectly good cheddar... 

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like your dog :) It is very cute !

  24. I was rather pleased  when  the comments were back to blogger rather than Disqus. I've not been commenting that often lately as Disqus pretty much blocks me out of your blog and refuses to work. So the first time I comment for ages and the sodding thing gets wiped. It was highly informative, and pant wettingly amusing. Obviously.

  25. Hello Naughty George here.
    I would like to thank all my fans at this difficult time.
    I thought the chicken has been left for me by my mistress Anne, how was I to know it was for her own consumption.
    I must admit I have had better chicken, that new microwave has a lot to answer for.
    Due to all your kind wishes and my new found fame I will be holding a paw signing session this coming Saturday at the lamp post outside the cottage here.
    Please bring gifts in return for my paw print, but I beg you no more bloody chicken, if I fart any more Izzy will be able to fly a kite in the gale.
    Woof Woof
    Naughty George.

  26. I can beat that. I had two big bags of earrings packaged up ready to deliver to shops in Austin. When I went in the other room Lazer apparently decided he needed to accessorize. He got the bags out of the container and ripped into the bags, strewing earrings all over the den in the process. Still I left the top off the container so he wasn't the only one at fault.

  27. Awww Man alive! What a git ;-) You are right ... that is well naughtier than Naughty George. x

  28. OMG! That is absolutely the funniest thing I have read in ages ...... someone with way tooo much time on their hands!!



    So, who are you? You can't keep me hanging on like this!! If you don't give your identity, I won't let NG attend the paw signing session next to the lamp post! ;-)

  29. Hiya, and thanks for stopping by. Aww, that is lovely that you like my dog and think he is cute. Normally people just call him 'irritating little bastard' and then ask me 'when is he going to die?'

  30. LOLOLOL!! I cannot believe I have only just spotted this comment. Man alive I laughed my head off!



    Someone obviously has too much time on the their hands ;-)



    Pray - unveil yourselves!

  31. I am getting really pissed off with Disqus. Loads of people have had problems with it. So this week, I am going to look into some alternatives.


    The problem with blogger comments is that you can't reply to someone's comment individually. They are all just in a long list. I don't suppose you know of any decent commenting software do ya?

  32. No eye contact ........... yep, my dog is a git!

  33. Oh Brahm, he truly is a git. I must have been bad in a former life or something!

  34. Poor NG - now don't go giving him sympathy after what he just did!



    I am having all manner of problems with my coments at the moment and it is pissing me off. I am going to see if there is a better system this week - do you know of any?

  35. Oh yes, NG definitely drove me to expletives. The git!

  36. I would, but he is probably too Naughty to do what the film companies want!

  37. Ooh hello Mike! Sorry about my outrageous language. We never did meet up so you could do them pics of NG!!

  38. UGH, your dog eats RAW chicken leg. That is completely minging!

  41. LOL, I was pretty cross. And how come everyone is feeling sympathy for Naughty George when he was the tealeaf?



    So Dillon was a git too eh?!

  42. He is a total bastard!



    Can you tell me what problems you encounter when you try and leave a comment? The reason being is that I am going to try and fix my commenting system this week.

  43. At least one good thing came out of his antics - he made people laugh. The git!

  44. Blimey, I have a mouth like a trooper when I annoyed. We can form a splinter group if you like!



    Now way would I waste that f**ing cheddar!

  47. Yeh, for a second you can almost believe he is genuinely sorry!

  48. I am still battling with bloody commenting. I need to try and get it sorted out this week, it's doing my head in!



    NG wasn't hungry. He is well fed that mutt. He is just a git!

  50. Oooh, that sounds interesting Jimski! I have got a bit of time off this week, so I shall have a squiz at it. Someone has also suggested moving my blog to Wordpress as an option.

  54. I don't know whether I am coming or going with bloody Disqus. Do you have any problems with yours?



    No way am I feeding Naughty George prime chicken. He's a mutt so he gets dog food!

  55. I was. And Bren kindly set me up a template to play with, but I didn't have a day spare to sit down and do it. This week is a different kettle of fish however. I am on holiday so might have a bit of time to 'play'! Huzzar

  56. Most of the time Disqus is fine. If you do a lot of changes to your blog, you may have to reload it. It's just like all tech. Tempermental.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Will do. But that is also interesting what you said about Blogger's new system. Can you reply to individual comments then?



    _____

    ReplyDelete
  58. *Oh yes, you van reply to each comment separately. Graphically Intense Debate is a little fancier than Blogger.......depends how 'fancy pants' you want it. lol Oh yes, unless you are a 'blogger' registered person, others can't reply like in your system.*
    *Check out Mark's blog, he uses Intense Debate : Mark's Blog *
    *Jim
    *

    ReplyDelete
  59. That's interesting - about the fact you have to be a blogger member. That is a bit off-putting. I am going drastic this week and I am gonna look at moving the whole thing to Wordpress!! I will also have a squiz at Intense Debate too! Chars ;-)

  60. Dogs are such amiable friends that have a very deep understanding of their owners... even if they don't always understand what they are saying.

  67. Another choice for sympathy gift baskets to help lighten a person's spirit and convey your sympathy is to give them a basket filled with comfort foods and sweets. These baskets include things such as assortments of cookies, chocolates, nuts, snack mixes, breads and more.
