Happy Earth Day Tidings. I know it is also election day in the state of Pa. But Sarcamo's Corner chooses not to be political. It chooses to be green. The corner did it's bit for energy conservation last week. Due to the crash of the server that hosts this site we were not a blip on anyone's aggregator for three whole days. We went dark. It was a little scary. Because even though the nice people who answered the phone for technical support assured me that ALL my information was safe, and that my blog would be restored SHORTLY (three days ! three days!) I was pretty much resigned to the fact that the powers that be had singled me out for being a slothful blogger and were cutting me off.
And then it came back up.
Sarcasmo's Corner would like to say thank you to Chris, who emailed to see if everything was okay. And to PTBvisiongrrl who was concerned about our sudden "web page cannot be displayed status", but who was reassured by her level headed hubby who surmised that it was probably just a server thing. And so it was.
But just so you know. When I panic, and I did, I really want other people to panic with me. Not tell me that all is well, or the situation will be resolved shortly. I want PANIC! Heart thumping sweaty palm PANIC. Because misery loves company.
Did I mention it is Earth Day? Good. Whenever Earth Day approaches Sarcasdad & I cannot help but remember that Sarcasmo had an Earth Day decal on her bedroom door for years. She picked it up when the Philadelphia Earth Day celebration was just a small expo at Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park. She was a young teenager. The sticker was still there when she was away at college. I am not sure exactly when we finally scraped it off.
I looked back through the archives for an Original Sarcamo that was about Earth Day. I didn't find one. But I did come across this one. The famous Sarcasmo versus the Squirrel Post. If you are interested there are several posts afterwards that continue the squirrel saga. No squirrels were physically harmed during the writing of these posts. There may ,however, have been some mental trauma. Enjoy!
As always, Sarcasmo's Corner is hoping you will participate in this blog by sending links Sarcasmo would have posted, stories, commentary, or whatever you feel appropriate to firstname.lastname@example.org
Sarcasmo would love this guy! He has an acronym and everything. And T-shirts. You know, she always wanted a cool super power. Maybe she had one after all. Armed with a felt tipped marker and a keen eye for grammatical atrocities, she too could have made America a better place, one apostrophe at a time.
