My mind is a dangerous place. Make sure you wear a cup.

Questions? I have questions...

Okay my friends...I need some advice, and I have a few other questions to ask y'all. I have very little mind of my own, and so I need to rely on others to do my thinking for me. Actually, I am pretty brain dead as I type this. I haven't slept for shit in a week, and I am a zombie. I am going to have to get something else from my doctor today.

Okay, here we go:

*Chat Boxes. Should I put one in my sidebar? As time goes by, I think I like the idea of one more and more, as a way for peeps to just throw out a how-do-you-do, ya know? But I can't remember seeing any male bloggers who have one. For that reason, should I pass? Will I have my testicles reposessed if I get a chat box? And if so, will I be retro-fitted for a vagina?

*Categories. I am soon getting a new template, moving to Wordpress, and will be on my new domain. Yes, I know I have been saying that for a long time but I swear, it's really gonna happen. Here is my question. With Wordpress I will of course have the option of categorizing my posts. I like that idea. But I have over 500 posts already in the can. Is it worth it to go back and categorize them all? I would have to quit my...oh yeah. Well, it would still take a lot of time, wouldn't it? However, my OCD will not allow me to just categorize from this point on, leaving all those other posts floating out there homeless. So it's all or nothing. What should it be?

*Does anyone know if I can start another Blogspot blog and move certain posts from this one to that one? I mean, without having to copy and paste? Is there a utility I can use to do that? I just don't think I want to take all of this blog with me when I move. Especially the earier stuff, which is crap.

*You know those fill-in boxes, like when you are commenting and you are asked for name, email, and url, and how once you type in the first letter or two it fills it in for you, or gives you a drop down menu to click? Over the last few months I have made several false entries. Consequently, when the box drops down, it includes a bunch of useless choices. Is there a way to get rid of those? They are really starting to annoy me. Update: Lynda knew how to fix it. Lynda is a genius. All hail Lynda! I said hail her, dammit!

*I have a couple of openings still in my Yahoo Fantasy Football league. It is a free league. Anyone play fantasy football and want an invite? Of course, if a lot of people want to play, we can start a whole blogger league. Yeah, that's right, like I need one more thing to be a geek about.

And last but not least, where in the world is my fucking bluetooth earpiece?

Chat boxes I have seen them on other guys sites. I don't understand the purpose, but if you want one, I don't see why not.

Categories I think you should do them but only from here on or just go back a little ways. If you can't do that then don't do it at all.

Blogspot I don't know about a blogspot blog, but you can do a free wordpress and do it that way. If you want, I will help you.

Fill ins I think the only way is to clear your cookies/cache/temporary internet files. I think you may have already done this, so if that didn't work, I don't know.

Fantasy Football You already got me on that one, too. What drug should I call that? Crack?

Bluetooth I have tried with this many times. It isn't where I told you it was, so I give up. Wait, could it be under or behind the bed?

Did that help?

Bluetooth - Look under the seat of your car.

The other stuff -
Chat boxes - oh be a trend setter and just do it.
Categories - agree with Shelli
Blogspot - I don't know.
Fill-ins - agree w/shelli
Fantasy Football - No thanks I've got enough to keep up with...

Mr. Fabulous!

Chat boxes are fun.

Categories: Like you I would want all of them categorized. In fact, I'm still working on doing that to my old posts. Although I moved to my own domain over a year ago. I still plan on doing that. I love categorizing everything!

Blogspot: I have no idea, as I am basically computer illiterate.

Fill ins: uhhhh, what? ;-)

Fantasy Football: uhhh, what? (I'll pass on the offer, but thank you) :-)

Bluetooth: *giggling* uhhh, what?

I just wanted to stop by and say, "Hello Mr. Fab. I hope you have a great day today!" :-)

3T
PS. If you had a shoubox, I culd have done that there. ;-)

Chat boxes? Have you had your estrogen levels checked lately? hehe - I say go for it!

Categories - its an all or nothing kinda thing - but I bet you could find the time...

Fantasy Football - I don't need another addiction - but thanks for asking....

Bluetooth - if you would have left it where it belonged in the first place you wouldn't be in this predicament would you?? Opps sorry - that was the Mom coming out in me.....

Blogger Blogarita said...

Chatbox: I don't use them when I see them, and probably wouldn't use it if you had one.

Categories: Can you move them later? And can you dump all of the old stuff into a category all at once. If so, why not make a category just for your old stuff, then move them into the correct categories as you have time.

Blogspot: I don't know, but I haven't noticed any kind of utility like that.

Fill-ins: I haven't figured out how to delete them yet. If you do, let me know.

Fantasy Football: No. Hell no.

Bluetooth: Check the drawer with your sex toys.

Chat boxes - no don't do it.
The rest of your questions are beyond me. Try asking the Magic 8 Ball.

Get a chatbox. I've seen three males have them on their blogs.

I say your should categorize them or your OCD will beat you up for it if you don't.

I'm not sure about blogspot. I hope wordpress works out better for you. Let me know if it does as I would LOVE to get rid of blogger.

Don't know about the fill-ins. Sorry dude.

I'm too busy rooting for the Steelers to play fantasy football. Thanks anyway.

It's in your car. Go and look.

In opposition to everyone else, I'll say hell yeah to some fantasy football.

What is "fantasy" about your football team?

8:58 AM  
Blogger Dramedy Girl said...

As far as moving and categorizing just categorize the posts you do like and leave the rest uncategorized.

Your bluetooth...hmmmm, try checking in your pants pockets before the wash is done, maybe you stuck it in your pocket?

Chatboxes are either fun or stupid. I'm sure on your site it will be a blast so add one will ya.

The rest I have no clue!

Easy comment. I agree with everyone on all points.

Wiat ... you're coming over to WordPress?

HOT DOG!!!

You will NOT regret it.

Between us on MySpace and the WordPress blogs, victory shall be ours!

Blogger Lynda said...

It is your blog. You should do what you want.

Can't you just make one category called old blog, and move the stuff there?

I don't know if you can move stuff, but you can change your blog address to move all the entries.

To get rid of AutoComplete, go to Tools -->Internet Options -->Content (click the tab) At the bottom, click the AutoComplete button. Click Clear Forms and you shouldn't have the old stuff anymore. Of course, you will have to type in the correct stuff again too.

Yuck, football. Wait, do you really mean soccer?

Check your car in between the seats.

Blogger Finn said...

It's too damn early for this, bro.

Chat boxes - do people use these? Waste of space if you ask me. I already comment here, what the hell else do you want?

Categories - do it. Categorize from now on, and little by little categorize your old posts. You don't have to do it all at once.

Fill Ins - Clear your cache as Shelli said. That's the only way.

The rest I have no opinion on.

The Bluetooth? It's underneath the washing machine. Or the dryer. Or not.

Chat Box: I've seen 'em but I don't really use them. I just leave comments instead.

Categories: I love them. When I moved to WP I went through all my effing posts and put them in categories! I think it's a nice option.

I bet if your bluetooth earpiece was in your ass, you'd know where it was!

Perhaps you ought to check the premises (physical and otherwise) of any lemurs you were frequenting recently?

As for blog questions: don'matter to ME. I'll follow you wherever -- you're the Grateful Dead of the blogosphere.

9:50 AM  
Blogger D said...

Chat boxes: Wouldn't it make more sense to just post your IM handles?

Categories: It seems way over the top for me. I say skip it. I find chaos comforting.

Blogspot: Maybe you could just rename this one and keep the ones you want? Or are you leaving this whole baby up after the move?

___ : no idea, I'm just a pretty face.

Football: I am totally in! Email me the info?

Shelli--Why would I be calling people from under the bed? :)

Fantastagirl--The car seems to be a popular choice...

3T--Thanks! I think I will categorize them all. I think it's a must...

Cheeky--Actually, I think my estrogen levels HAVE been quite high lately...

Blogarita--Of course! The sex toy box! How could I have forgotten?

M--I gave all my Magic 8 Balls away. Damn it!

Pud--You and your Steelers :)

MC--Okay dude, I will send you an invite...

Dutchy--I knew it! Give it back! Don't make me come over there...

Dramedy Girl--Good idea about the laundry, I'll check...

Maidink--Yes! It is phase two in our plan for world domination!

Lynda--You are a freaking genius. It worked. Thanks, buddy!

Megan--9:37 AM is too early, sis? Long night? :)

ANO--I think you are right. Categorizing is the way to go...

CP--Please. My ass is the FIRST place I checked. It always is :) Grateful Dead eh?

D--Chaos is comforting? Arrgh! I WILL send you the football info though LOL

Chat boxes ......why not ?

Fantasy football - isnt there enough REAL football to go around already?

Goof ball. I mean maybe you threw it on the bed and then it fell off and got kicked under the bed or something. Just an idea.

Do the chat box; you'll have fun with it. Don't worry about whether or not other men have them. Everybody knows vaginas are way better than penises anyway.

Do the categories. Even if it's a pain to get them all set up, you'll be glad later. Plus people like to read archives by category.

That's all I know, sorry!

Hail, Lynda! Oh, wait....

Well, until I saw your post update, I was going to say that I wasn't going to stop at hero status, but aim for demi-goddess. hahaha!

You crack me up.

Blogger Karl said...

CHAT BOXES - don't do it. Keep only the essentials in your sidebar. Those shoutboxes are utter shite and redundant to boot. That's what comments are for.

CATEGORIES - very helpful. Be sure to categorize from here on out. Maybe go back and categorize your archives a month or two at a clip until they're all done. That way it's not too overwhelming.

The rest people have convered well enough.

1:54 PM  
Blogger DramaPrincess said...

I am bipolar with OCD tendencies... I wouldn't be able to NOT categorize them. Do it a little at a time as you have time.

As for Blogger - I had to move mine because "real life" people were getting involved in it. I just changed the name of the URL, then made a new one that said "If you want to know the address of the new one, email me" and made that one go to the OLD address.

If you get a chat box, I will be over here more than I already am being unemployed. Are you ready for that? LOL

Alex is emailing you on the techie issues because they make my head hurt. :D

Michele--I am not a huge football fan, but for some reason I love fantasy football. I'm weird.

Lynda--Demi-goddess. That my friend, would be quite a coup!

Suze--Maybe I want you over here more. Ever think of that? :)

Cheeky--Yes please. Three 8 Balls are better than one!

Beady--They are happy little boxes aren't they? :)

Karl--You are wise, my friend, way beyond your years...

Drama Princess--Good advice, and thanks for stopping by. At what point do you graduate to Drama Queen?

MsDemmie--Of course! Where I left it! How silly of me! :)

Shelli--Okay, I'll look under the bed, but I'll feel silly...

Dutchy--I am gonna open me up a can of good old fashioned tulip-stompin' whoop-ass! :)

SudieGirl--It would be a hell of a half time show!

Ficklechick--I can keep my penis though, right?

Chat boxes - I don't have one and I don't ever intend on having one. But I have decided on a chat system so people could send out a quick "hi". In fact, it should be integrated into the new design of my site.

Categories - If I forget to categorise something, I leave it as uncategorised for SEO sake. You should see for yourself: http://www.thekyle.ca/blog/category/uncategorized/.

Blogspot - Uh, I really advise against it but if you really want a seperate blog, you should look into a seperate install of WordPress. Either at your own domain or wordpress.com .

Bluetooth - You mean that annoying service that I don't use, everyone around me does and allows me to look into other people's address books. Well, other than snooping into your neighbour's personal life, I really don't see a purpose for bluetooth.

2:51 PM  
Blogger Plunky said...

I don't know about all that other stuff but your bluetooth is in Mrs. Fabs underwear drawer. She's hiding it so you are no longer one of "those guys". Has anyone noticed it's only men who walk around with those in their ear?

I know at least 1-2 guys with chatboxes. I had one for the longest time, but I got rid of it because too many spammers left me comments.

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Tabz--I'm random? Cool!

Webmiztris--You can get spam in a chat box? Well, that is probably the deal breaker, then.

Deb--I know it's not in the underwear drawer, because I am always in there trying her stuff on when she's not home...

CS--That's right, you just have to sit there and look glamorous!

Kyle--You can look into people's address books? I'm confused.

Chat boxes...annoying in my opinion. If you comment on them, you have to backtrack to see what people are talking about (willis) or no one comments and you look like a big loser

Categories, i would but only from like one month past on.

Yes, you can have 2 blogs, but you would have to cut and paste, I tried it, that's what they told me.

fill ins no idea, glad lynda can help

Fantasy football - I pick the Mets, they play football right

Bluetooth, i have no idea, look in the fridge, I find many strange things in my fridge, or the floor of your car. But thanks to Shelli, for helping to the link to reconnect mine when i got a new phone. She can help you when you give up and get a new one and can't get it to bond with your phone. She's awesome like that.

Chat box - NO!!!!! Those are evil. For whores only. Certainly you are NOT a whore.

Catgeories - YES. Must categorize your posts. Just go back a month or two or start fresh, whatever.

Blogspot - Don't know.

Fab just do whatever you want. If you want a chat box and to categorize everything then just do it. It's your blog.

I know someone who can fit you with a prosthetic vagina if that's what you want.

As for your bluetooth, you probably dropped it underneath your desk...at work. Just get another one.

8:38 PM  
Blogger Nobody said...

chat box- you are a total fag if you have one

Categories- Yes, categorize them all. Being a lazy bum, let me suggest that you create a category of something like "old shit" and put all the blogspot stuff in that. Not that any of your posts are shit, but you know what I mean. And sorry if someone else suggested this, being a lazy bum, I'm not reading the other comments today.

Bluetooth- You didn't look under the leumur cages, did you? Of course you didn't.
