Master of My Domain

It's time to update your bookmarks, your sidebars, or any graffiti you may have scrawled on the walls of only the finest Exxon stations. After almost four years, The Typing... has gotten its Blogspot braces off and is now rocking a shiny new dot com.

While the old address should magically redirect, the new site is: Triple W dot thetypingmakesmesoundbusy dot com.

It's times like this that make me wish I had a job, if only so I could order new business cards. Instead, I'll be pulling the letters above out of my latest box of Alphabits cereal and quite possibly framing them. I also made this, which I think captures the quiet dignity of my blogging career.

TTMMSB

Since getting back from London, most of my days begin with changing out of my nighttime pajama pants into my daytime ones and end when I realize that I've somehow filled the hood of my sweatshirt with Cheeto dust. As a result, it doesn't always make for the most compelling reading. On the days that I haven't scribbled anything here, check my Tumblr, if only so I don't ever have to write the word Tumblr again. This site has become something of a journal and that...um...other thing is like the door to my fridge, a place to file all of the pictures, songs, and--lately--unending references to Robyn Hitchcock that may not fit here.

Also, I swear that this is the last time you'll ever see a butterfly flapping its gossamer wings anywhere near my face. I'm getting a rash just looking at that thing. Ew.

If that butterfly isn't sucking your brains out, it's pissin' in your hair. Yes! Bugs pee!

Updating my stuff now with the new .com business. Good for you!

Ooh, I've been meaning to do that myself for a while (losing the 'blogspot', I mean, not acquiring butterflies and a Tinkerbell)...this may be the push I need to get off my ass and do it. Or I may just keep drinking whisky and tell myself I'll do it tomorrow when I'm sober.

Mary Moore said...

Very impressive. Espesh the butterfly.

I'd love to lose the "blogspot" too, but alas, I have not the courage yet.

And by the way, you're hilarious.

Now all that's left to do is to get your favicon.

That would be the whole link. So sorry.

Essentially Me said...

Fuck! Still cutting off dammit!

I have day time pajamas too. And my daughter is still in her pjs from last night. I figure, once it's noon, of you're still in your pjs, you ought not waste an outfit causing yourself extra laundry...

Jaxie Fantastic said...

Congrats on your brand new shiny dot com! I'll be adding it! :)

Kate said...

Well, I'm glad I got to see the butterfly then! I have no idea how you did it, so I guess you must be magic -- and I love your blog!

KT said...

Love the new look!

I just had an episode of PTSD from my sophomore year of high school when my mid-life crisising mother came home one night after a drunken escapade with her coworkers (elementary school teachers, mind you) with a Tinkerbell/pixie/harpy tattoo next to her vadge. Yep, I just said that. I cringe and shudder.

Ooooh! Shiny!

I really, really, really hope someday you are paid to write for a sitcom (and if it stars Hugh Laurie - all the better for both of us).

Seriously, I'm like a stay-at-home Mum with 3 kids and a Cub Scout and Girl Scout troop to lead. And I think you're one of the funniest people I've ever read.

I'm sure I'm not the demographic you're going for, but you have widespread appeal - I'm on a one-woman mission to get my friends to read your blog.

akilah sakai: Thanks for giving me something new to fear.

imaginary reviewer: I tell myself I'm going to do a lot of things "tomorrow" because I don't think that day's ever going to get here, much like when I buy things at Rooms To Go because I won't pay until January. Hahaha! Foolish furniture retailers with their made up days in the future!

mary moore: DO IT! Break loose from the blogspot training wheels! If I can figure out how to do it, you'll be fine and will probably spend a lot less time sobbing.

essentially me: I DID IT! LOOK AT IT! I MADE A FAVICON AND NOW I AM SPENT!

mama simmons: EXACTLY. That's also why I won't be changing out of these underwear marked "Wednesday" until tomorrow morning. Otherwise, it would be false advertising.

jaxie fantastic: Sweet! Thanks for stopping by! Please come back! EXCLAMATION POINT!

kate: When's your birthday? I'll give you this butterfly, assuming its wings haven't fallen off, what with the constant flapping.

KT: Thanks! It only took me, like, 18 Diet Cokes to do it.

illbred: Oh wow. I wish I hadn't just eaten.

hot librarian: I KNOW! It's probably going to attract moths.

lone butterfly: That's the nicest thing I've heard all day. Thank you. And you're exactly the demographic I want because you sound pretty awesome. Please tell your friends that I think they would like me and that we could all possibly be friends in real life. Unless that's something they'd find creepy, in which case, don't say a word.

Whoa, that sure is a lot of sparkles there, lady. Congrats on the new look :)
