Feeling a Bit Inadequate

First of all, if ever you considered the following equation, I caution you not to. Obviously, Grandy was NOT thinking when she did so.







Shaving...







Beautiful and nice smelling salt scrub
Stupid pain





I do the dumbest things sometimes.


I know...we all do...or at least some of us are big enough to admit it. But sometimes even I tire of my own inabilities to function like a normal human being.


Now you know why I call this place Functional Shmunctional.


Here's a quick example.


You all can tell Grandy has been working on trying to get this place looking top rate. Goofy Girl Design did an awesome job with the new digs, and I'm trying to clean some other things up. I even put an RSS Feed link on the site. I stumbled across a wonderfully talented girl, Emila Yusof, who makes these great dollies for your RSS Feed.

It only cost a few hundred Entrecard Credits, and my RSS Feed link will look like this...

How awesome is that? She's got my curly hair...my glasses... and even my baseball cap. It's GRANDY!! This girl has got some cute Illustration skillz.

The problem?

Grandy can't make the darn thing work on her page. She gave me the code, and I can't make it work. I can only ask so many stupid questions, before I sink away with my tail between my legs, humbled that I'm an idiot.

If you like this dolly, she can customize one for you too. Emila Yusof has made many many for others, and don't worry, they work just fine for them.

It's just Grandy that can't make it happen.

UGH!!

Thanks Emila!!

Mama said there’d be daze like this … I feel your pain … seriously! Dad reminded me that all things pass away … and ‘the Beatles’ that we all get by with a bit of help from our friends.
Hugs and blessings,

Umm I can confess.. I too have done the shaving + salt scrub. Umm didn't even think twice about doing it. I know there are many others "out there" that did the same. You make me laugh (out loud). Thanks.

At the moment I cannot think of a good example, but oh lordy do I pull some good ones too! Wait, there was one time when I wanted to smell something and for some reason I still cannot fathom, I *licked* it instead! Cannot remember what it was, but the worst part was that there were witnesses!! Ack.

You shaved with salt scrub? May I ask why?

I saw your post on Derfwad Manor......great blog. I am originally from Placerville, CA - Not too far away from you!

Can't say that I have had the pleasure of that type of shaving accident but I am always cuting myself........I hate shaving.

Thanks for sharing and saving me some "stupid pain." The best kind of PSA. I have considered this combo, but typically run out of time when I shave.

Janet said...

Isn't Heather wonderful!!! Your site looks great :-)

Lisa P said...

Oh ouch! Sounds like a Fear Factor dare.

I hate those salt scrubs anyway. The oil they come in makes my shower a mess to clean.

Followed your blog over from Shout!, by the way.

Grandy said...

phd~ glad I could be of assistance. ;)

Janet~ YES!! HEATHER ROCKS!!

Lisa~ Thanks for stopping by!!
