I’ve decided to give Blogger’s “Follower” feature another try, this time around by simply entering each website individually rather than importing from Google Reader. It still shows up on my reader but this could be because I imported earlier when I tried to use it. Wondering if anyone has experienced any problems when they’ve tried to give it a go? I’m not sure that I like the fact that the profile pages now list the blogs that I’m following but I’ll let that go for now. I give it a week. If things go super wonky (yes, that IS the technical term thank you very much), I’m ditching it again my friends.

The world is abuzz about this weekend’s SNL opening skit. In case you haven’t heard, it featured a nonpartisan press conference called by Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, played to perfection by Tina Fey. It was hilarious. Click on the picture below to watch the clip (if NBC hasn’t had it removed from YouTube for copyright infringement yet).

For those footie fans out there, feel free to sign up for Rogers Sportsnet Premiership Predictor. It’s a fantasy game where you predict the winners/losers/draws for each week of the English Premier League season and compete with your fellow fans for prizes. Alas, it’s only open to Canadian residents (except Quebec as usual). I’m currently in 5572 place but I just started this past week so give me a break. I managed to win 11 points though. That’s a good start! Otherwise the EPL also offers their own Fantasy League game online that you can play.

I’m a bit bummed today. This morning I put on my fabulous monkey socks…and discovered a giant hole in the bottom of one. The other day I had to throw out a pair of skull socks for the same reason. Darn it. This means I have to go shopping again tomorrow and get more. I don’t enjoy shopping but I can take solace in the fact that it’s not for a bathing suit.

I have had no trouble with the "Followers" thingy yet, but rest assured if I do then I'll toss it like yersteday leftovers.

I'm not sure about the follower feature yet, either. It seems redundant with the Google reader. I haven't had any problems with it so far.

NBC got here before I did. Tina Fey is pretty much a ringer for Sarah Palin. All she has to do is open her mouth and say something inflammatory and she has her nailed.

So far, I like the following feature. I like the fact that I can see new posts in my dashboard and not have to use a reader. I had been using bloglines, but I haven't gone there since I set up following. If you don't want it to show on profile pages, you can choose to follow anonymously. It still shows up in your dashboard, but not on the profile page of the blog you are following.

Maybe I will look into the follower feature after all. I feel so old school with my bookmarks. I like my bookmarks though!

Happy sock shopping.

Shopping for socks can be fun esp when shopping for little ones..
