Switching Website Servers. A Poem

Switching Servers

A beautiful poem, by Karen


Today there is no post,

Because I am switching hosts,

My server was slow

but now it’ll go,

Right now I am eating some toast.

I don’t know what the big deal with poetry is.  That piece of work must have taken 15 seconds tops.  I could fill an entire book in about half an hour.  Even less if you give me some Diet Coke and a chocolate bar.  Or some uppers.

So I had a highly entertaining, ridiculously informative post on Vertical Gardening scheduled for today, but I’ve scrapped it because the website is still iffy.  I hope for The Art of Doing Stuff to be moved from its old server to its new server sometime today.  Since I’m not sure when it’ll happen I didn’t want to schedule the super-fantastic Vertical Gardening post on the off chance it disappeared into cyberworld, never to be found again.

I will never be re-posting the Vertical Gardening post because I have OCD and am also a little bit superstitious and those two things combined, prevents me from scheduling it again.  So I’ve put it in the computer garbage.  Along with some farbrage. © Poetess Karen (I CAN’T even stop rhyming this poetry thing comes so easily to me)

Just kidding. The Vertical Gardening post will go up on Wednesday.  Not to be confused with Friendsday.  © Poetess with the best, Karen

For now I say bye, you should probably cry, because sometimes my toast I will fry.  Honest to God. It just pours out of me.

    I’m coming to this thread late because I’m traveling, instead of browsing, but Diet Coke and a chocolate bar ARE uppers.

    Karen, I want you to know that you’re my hero. I’ve never met a more entertaining post about server switching. If I ever grow up, I hope to become you!

    I look forward to the vertical gardening post! It might be a nice change from the usual lying-on-the-ground gardening I do (right before passing out with an empty liquor bottle in one paw.)

    Your poems rock!
    And so do your chocolate mug cakey things.
    Unfortunately for me.

    Yes Kerrie-lee I have wondered that myself!

    I think Karen is the funnier, prettier, skinnier, more talented version of me! Karen I think your next holiday should be here in Australia, but then again that cottage looks so appealing that I wouldn’t blame you if that was the only place you wanted to go!

    And can I just say that I feel all creeped out when people request another picture of the fella! Yuck!…..oh not him-he’s not yuck but can’t they just go and buy some porn of their own??

    You must cease work on the chicken poop, I mean coop, and embrace your true self, Poetess Karen.

    ZOMG, you are so funny!

  8. Pati says:

    I look forward to your blog like no other;
    Mostly since you look nothing like my brother.

    OMG ! You are SUCH an poetical inspiration !!!!!

    LMBO !

    you are hilarious, love a good sense of humour on a monday morning

    It must be hard to be so effortlessly talented. Everyone’s probably always asking you to write greeting cards and stuff.

  11. Emi says:

    Karen! I love you, but not in that way.
    I come to visit you everyday.
    You make me laugh, you make me think.
    I’ve never seen your nails painted pink.
    You educate and inspire and dare me to try,
    To make or do STUFF that I would normally buy.
    Your blog is really the best,
    A lot of the others ought to give it a rest.

    Could you be Australian and not know it? You are soooooo F#%cking funny!!!!
