I just deleted at LEAST 100 spam comments.

The comment spammers have launch a FULL-BLOWN attack on vibey.

The problem is I’m too scurred to upgrade my WordPress even though doing so would give me more control to FIGHT THE FUCK BACK!

So, instead, I waste a half-hour of my life DELETEING.



Have I been knitting? yes.

Have I things to tell you about? yes.

Have I pictures to share? yes.

Have I been MAD busy? yes.

Have I become THAT girl who totally neglects her blog and lets it get all dusty and INFESTED with crapalicious COMMENT SPAM?!?!?! yes.



Well, maybe you’ll forgive me if I post a cute baby pic?

Meet Alyssa Mae

One of my bestest friends had a baby!!!! Alyssa was born yesterday at 2:14pm and Momma and baby (and Daddy) are all doing FABULOUS! Ain’t she the CUTEST damn thing?

Speaking of which…

Tonight I’m gonna KNIT, and then I’mma take PICTURES and then HOPEFULLY, later in the week, I will have a real, PROPER knit blog post. ‘Aight?

    I was wondering what happened to you. Glad you’re doing all right. Spam blows, and I HATE that delete confirmation thing. That is, until I accidently delete something uber important… Alyssa is beautiful, great name too :)

    Awwww. Baby pictures *almost* makeup for your lack of blogging ;)

    Just kidding. I am super busy too and always promise I will get better. Then I don’t. I totally lack integrity sometimes.

    Spam sucks, indeed. I spent hours last week deleting Trackback spam. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. Jerks, all of them.

    I got hit REALLY hard with spam comments before I upgraded my blog version… I was getting hundreds a day. Good luck keeping those buggers out, Lara.

    Cute baby! :)

    so sorry about the spam. your blog cracks me — particularly the look of defeat in your eyes. funny!

  12. Jenny Says:

    You are too funny. Tell those WP losers to make you some kind of superspamblocker. ;-P

  13. MJ Says:

    I feel for you and I agree with Jenny: talk to WP about spam blockers! I know blocking IP addresses can help, but 100 spammers is crazy. Congrats to the new parents! And Laurent? Hilarious! Keep us updated.

    I had that DAMN SPAM. I used to get alot of online gambling spam. But when Carrie and I switch to the same server it went away. They either know that I A.)Do not have any money for gambling B.) Can’t get around the Moveable type upgrade. I’m leaning towrads A. And your friends little bubba is cute as a button. And teeny! And don’t worry about neglecting your blog aon occasion, JUST DON’T DO IT AGAIN.

  15. Carrie Says:

    What a freakin’ cute baby. A schmoo. Now, get us some knitting pictures, stat. :)

  16. Carrie Says:

    p.s. heehee, I think it’s funny that you called yourself vibey.

  17. Angie Says:

    I’m so glad you’re back. I was starting to think that Laurent REALLY kicked your ass. I was going to give it a few more days, and then put on my Search and Destroy pants…

    That baby makes me want to have a baby.
