First, I'm FURIOUS with LiveJournal! Absolutely furious. I used to use my work email for LJ. I use it for almost EVERYTHING else I do. But LJ has a 'reputation' that was causing me issues. So instead I changed to my Yahoo email.
Well, I've always had a paid Yahoo email (at least I have for many years). Somehow Yahoo quit informing me that it needed to be renewed. That also infuriates me, as I want the benefits I get from that. But I've always paid $20 a year (which seems reasonable), and the cost is now $50 a year -- which seems utterly ridiculous to me!!!
So LiveJournal tells me I need to VALIDATE MY EMAIL. What the HELL?????????? I've had my account since 2002! And LJ is telling me I need to VALIDATE MY EMAIL? Supposedly this is related to my email account, which was my Yahoo account. So I hit the link to validate and log in to my Yahoo account.
My Yahoo email is a huge MESS. I'm not kidding. It could take days to figure it out. Just awful. And there's NO SIGN of any validation email. None.
Say, just try to find any way to get HELP from Yahoo. Good luck with that! If your topic doesn't fit the things they list, you are sh*t out of luck.
So the only thing I can do is change my email at LiveJournal if I want to use my damn account. My damn PERMANENT account, mind you!!!!!!!!! So, yeah, I kind of DO want to use it! Considering I blog almost every day of my life and have been blogging here since 2002, YEAH, I want to use it.
I'm not even going to be able to write the entry I'd planned to write, because I'm just too angry and upset. And I need to wash my hair and head to bed, for crying out loud! I've got a really BUSY and big day tomorrow, which includes the start of training for a new staff member! Plus I have Donn coming in.
I'm so ANGRY with both LiveJournal and Yahoo that I don't know what to say!
On a happy note, Marilyn and I made it home safely from our lovely vacation to our beach house. There was some concern, as there was liquid falling from the sky and the temperatures were 30' most of the way home (and we'd heard ice warnings on TV). We got a late start home, so it was quite dark, too. (sigh) But the cats were really, really good during the drive!!!
We did get Thanksgiving put away at the beach house -- and Christmas up (mostly). Especially the tree! It made us both quite happy.
It's a bear sometimes to pack up to travel home. I was very tired tonight. Well, after wasting nearly an HOUR on all this online drama, I need to get my hair done and get to bed. (It's actually WELL PAST midnight now. Which also annoys me no end! But as this must be my Monday post, I've backdated.)
More tomorrow, I hope.
Sorry for the ranting, but this situation is horrible. I'm so tired of not being able to get help when you need it. What's that about???
