Merci, Heidi!

Tuesday, January 17, 2006

My very kind and considerate friend, Heidi
sent me a package from the recent United Nations Conference on Climate Change, held in Montreal. Among the items were a nice canvas bag, hat and scarf, pin and many useful work related items. Thank You!
I have known for months now just how important this blog is to me and how important my friendships are. That was even more apparent this morning, when my blog had disappeared from the internet. Poof. Gone. I freaked out. Would you have done the same? I won't ask you if you think I'm crazy, because frankly, it doesn't matter. If this is crazy, then that's just fine with me :)

    None of my blogger pals ever send me presents; they must like you more.

    Oh, don't be so hard on yourself. (well, on second though, yeah... you're right.)

  1. Blogger angel, jr. said:

    I'm glad you found your blog!

    Those are some awesome prizes, I have a black ski cap but it's not that cool. The only trick is does is spring off my head, bong! There it goes again! Good thing I'm not a bank robber this cap would totally foil the heist!

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Angel;
    Me too!

    SkyeBlue;
    I was thinking I looked like a bank robber!:)

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    Your very welcome and you look great! :)

    I would have reacted the same way..My computer is acting strange these days...I'm starting to write down everyones blog addresses incase my comp crashes. Just a bad computer vibe I'm getting.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Heidi;
    Thank you again. You are so very sweet. I will think positive computer thoughts for you. Good idea to write down URLs, though. The first thing I thought about when mine wasn't working was potentially losing the links to the blogs I read.

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

    Oh I wouldn't freak out if my blog dissappeared - it'd create it again in the next instant ;)
    This is one hell of a hobbie!

  1. Blogger DayByDay4-2Day said:

    I have mistakenly deleted all my blog links and that was a feeling of craziness.

    So yes I think I would go insane if it went poof!

  1. Blogger Will D said:

    That is strange that it "disapeared", glad the David Copperfield wasn't perminent!

  1. Blogger Aly said:

    I have made lots of friends over blogs and various other things. Most of the time they are there for me more than my everyday friends. and exchanging gifts is always awesome.

    I'm glad you still have your blog, otherwise I wouldn't have met you!

    -Alysa

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Devil Mood;
    I would re-create mine as well. I would mourn the loss of all my posts, however. And it would be difficult to find all of you again!

    DaybyDay;
    That must have been terrible and hard to find them all again.

    Will;
    And I am also glad!

    Alysa;
    Why is it that we are able to be more open in this way of communcation that with some of our friends we interact with face to face? It is a shame that we are all there for one another more than the people we see and talk to in person. But we are and it is such a great thing.

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    great gifts!
    you are not crazy. if this happened to me, i think i'd be emailing the people at blogger like mad.
    come to think of it, are you saving your posts in html form? I am not, but i will.

  1. Blogger Michelle said:

    Nooooooooo your not crazy, Blogger gets gremlins ...more often than not sadly :(
    Love that hat, i wish it were cold enough for me to wear one!
    You lucky duck..pressies. Heidi is one sweet girl :)

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Love your pressies, lucky girl. I don't think you're crazy, cause I was freaking out when all that came up when I clicked on your blog was a white blank page. I thought you'd left us, and didn't want to play anymore. I'm relieved that all is ok in the world again.
    Take care,
    Meow

    Cool goodies! Packages rock.

    Blogger freaks me out when it does that. I HIGHLY recommend ecto blog software. You can write and post directly from the program which looks and feels very word processor-ish, or if you prefer to use Blogger's post editor, you can use the ecto to back-up all your posts. Heaven forbid they disappear, they can be reposted if you wish. It's cheap...I think like $20.

    Why does your blog keep disappearing?

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Chloe;
    It is on my to-do list. I will be backing things up soon!

    Michelle;
    She sure is, and so are you:)

    Meow;
    I was freaking out beacuse that's all I saw as well. I would never leave without saying goodbye so if something like this ever ever happens again, blame it on blogger. I am here for awhile.

    MissB;
    I will have to look into that, thanks.

  1. Blogger Neo said:

    Cathy -Hmmmm, what do you mean it disappeared? As in you went to get into it and it wasn't here?

    I'm confused....

    Peace & Hugs,

    - Neo

  1. Blogger Anhoni Patel said:

    Can I just say that you have THE best friends ever! They are always sending you gifts and packages and treats. I;m jealous.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Neo;
    When I typed in the URL or tried to access my blog in any way, the screen just showed up in white and it said "Done" in the lower left corner. At least three of my blogger friends saw the same thing when they came over. It was annoying and worrisome. But now that's over! Phew.

    Anhoni;
    My blog friends are the best, and you are in their company.
    Would you like me to mail you a snail mail cd of Canadian music; I've compiled one for blog friends.

  1. Blogger Jase said:

    Mine was just inaccessible 5 minutes ago, I got worried. What if Blogger disappeared? Firstly all my posts would have been lost, also I'd have lost touch with my friend Cathy, send me an e-mail so I know this won't happen please

  1. Blogger Berlinbound said:

    I'm not a hat person, although I take great pleasure in finding hats for HH and he won't go out without at hat... Two days ago however it was soooo cold here in Cologne that I actually pulled my wool knit cap out from the bottom of HH's stroller - and somehow a family of moths must have settled down there because my old beanie was full of holes! Have fun with your hat thing ... it's a harmless pleasure that actually does some good!

  1. Blogger Lisa said:

    I am glad you are still here !!! I went to a blog recently ( one of the first I went to) and she was gone without a trace . Even her daughter's website was gone ( she passed away 3 years ago) . I felt so sad because I didn't even say goodbye .

    Ps Love the hat :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Jase;
    Will do.

    Richard;
    Did they come with you from NY?Expat moths!:)
    And I've seen the photos of your beautiful son in his hats; no one wears them better!

    Lisa;
    I'm gald to be here; thanks!
