Blog City says my subscription is extended for 2 more weeks until the WordPress export is available, but because time was running out and I was getting nervous, I started manually exporting a few days ago. Exporting 250-something blog entries the old fashioned way is exactly as fun as it sounds, by the way.
However, waiting for pages to load just so you can copy/paste/get angry about dead links/finally figure out how to transfer videos after leaving a few of them blank is an excellent way to lose track of time. I just now realized that if I don’t get in the shower and shave my legs before Dave’s party tonight, I could go in costume as a college lesbian. A LUG, is it called?
Dave and I were supposed to go as the Keymaster and the Gatekeeper. You know. Vince Klortho? Zuul? Work for Gozer? Anyway. I tried finding a decent picture but none of them exist.
It’s an idea I had two days after Halloween last year and made Dave promise to remember. Everything was fine until some asshole showed him the Grapist video, so our possessed Dana Barrett-Louis Tully idea has been shelved in favor of what everyone is going to assume is a member of the Fruit of the Loom posse:
His excuse was that the Louis Tully/Keymaster costume was “too hard” to put together.
“Dave,” I said. “A flannel shirt, a pair of khakis, and ugly glasses are probably already in your house. How is that any harder than finding a giant bunch of grapes costume on the Internet, paying for it, and then waiting for it to be delivered to you?”
So now I’m stuck without a costume. It’s not a requirement for showing up at this party, but I was really proud of the costume idea in the first place and was a little excited to go natural and rock some 80s hair. But not like the normal idea of 80s hair. Dana Barrett was classy! She played the cello in the New York Philharmonic! She was chic, she didn’t need a crimping iron!
(except, you know, less slutty because I’m practically a kept woman)
Excuse me, but I have no interest in masquerading as an Angry Womyn. I have to get in the shower. And then export some more.
Try 950 entries, most with pictures and comments. I’ll be exporting til my subscription ends in May. 😦
That was an AWESOME costume idea! Screw the grapist!
The pictures copy by themselves, though I imagine they’ll be lost when Blog City shuts down for good (they were saved in my account). Most of mine have comments, too, and I’m not even bothering with those.
I FINALLY figured out how to easily transfer the videos. The earlier exports have big blank spots where they should have been. This is balls.
