I Really am Stupider than You Realize

Lindsay was on the Metro tonight and saw this in the free newspaper they hand out on the Metro:

So, last night, after spending the day Googling things like “blogger font change” or “changes at blogger,” I used my laptop and realized that Blogger looked normal. My first thought was that I had a cookie or something on my computer preventing Blogger from updating (I know, rational). But I went back downstairs to try to figure out why Blogger’s font was suddenly enormous in one place and normal in the other.

And I realized that I had hit a shortcut key that enlarged the screen by zooming in.

Ctrl+0 fixed the issues with Blogger.

Except that I forgot to write that today. So for all the people who were riding the Metro and saw that, there is nothing wrong with Blogger. There is just something wrong with me.

Um, of all the quotes they could have taken from your blog, THAT was it?

2 docgrumbles { 05.08.09 at 8:39 pm }

you never know what you’ll become famous for!

3 Kymberli { 05.08.09 at 8:43 pm }

Umm… hahaha???

4 JJ { 05.08.09 at 8:45 pm }

That is too funny…I can imagine Lindsay’s face when she saw it!

Sigh…sounds like you’re having a day like I’m having.

There’s no such thing as bad publicity, right?

Maybe you’ll get some people looking at the site because they’re curious about the name, and maybe some of them will be ALI-types who wouldn’t have found you otherwise.

I vote the more publicity the better.

8 CJ { 05.08.09 at 9:16 pm }

This made me laugh out loud. It’s an instant classic! 🙂 Anyone who reads your blog knows you are a genius, and maybe this will entice others to check you out.

How in the world do these things happen to you??

And how in the world did you figure out the fix??

10 N { 05.08.09 at 10:11 pm }

Heh! Go figure. Of all the days for J not to bring home the WPE…

11 Kristin { 05.08.09 at 10:11 pm }

Too funny

12 noswimmers { 05.08.09 at 10:18 pm }

You SO have to frame that. ROFL!

13 Beautiful Mess { 05.08.09 at 10:45 pm }

Hmmm interesting that they chose THAT statement…really?! Although, that is funny.

14 Mary { 05.08.09 at 11:05 pm }

That is absolutely hilarious!

15 Christy { 05.09.09 at 12:22 am }

Too funny! Maybe not what you want to be known for, but it must be nice to know that you’ve made a few people smile today.

It was such a great moment. I was riding back on Metro with Mr. Badger, and found a stray Express. I pick it up and read it and got to the blogs section where they have random quotes from blogs. I see the quote about blogger and say to Mr. Badger:
“Oh wow, Melissa said the same thing yeste….oh. It’s Melissa’s blog.” I then proceeded to laugh my ass off and take a picture for Mel, for taunting of course.

Love the media coverages of blogs… clever

18 "MissMelissa" { 05.09.09 at 10:12 am }

Sweetie… no worries!!!! I can’t believe they wrote that. Ugh. That wasn’t very nice, IMO, of them to do.

You are not stupid!!! Simple thing that any one of us could do at any moment. 🙂


Happy Mothers Day Weekend!!!


19 Jen { 05.09.09 at 10:21 am }

I like how in their commentary about your commentary, they assumed you were right.

20 Clare { 05.09.09 at 12:07 pm }

Ha ha ha! This is too funny. And hey we have all done stuff like that, more often than we like to admit 😉 Wait for the next edition of Metro, where they print this post 🙂

21 tj { 05.09.09 at 12:23 pm }

You’re famous!

22 Brenna { 05.09.09 at 12:33 pm }

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe THAT, of all quotes, landed in the paper. Bizarro!

23 Bernice { 05.09.09 at 2:13 pm }

Haha, that’s a stitch! =) I wish I’d taken a picture of the Metro from a few months back where they quoted your post about loving your local library!

24 Larisa { 05.09.09 at 4:04 pm }

I find that entirely hilarious!

25 Another Dreamer { 05.09.09 at 5:21 pm }


26 Cara { 05.10.09 at 6:25 am }

Woah – that really is funny…

27 Somewhat Ordinary { 05.11.09 at 9:27 am }

I’m with MrsSpock!

28 JamieD { 05.11.09 at 11:39 am }

I’m sorry but that makes me laugh! It sounds just like something that would happen to me.

29 Kathy { 05.11.09 at 12:11 pm }

I had the same reaction as MrsSpock too! Totally something I would do though… Thanks for sharing! 🙂

30 Natalie { 05.11.09 at 9:18 pm }

LMAO!!! Oh good grief.

31 Lorza { 05.12.09 at 7:45 am }

That is hilarious. I hope I don’t end up quoted one day b/c I am talking about my husband’s..um…you know. 🙂

32 DrSpouse { 05.12.09 at 10:11 am }

That made me laugh!
