Down with robots

Wow, what a weekend.

The low point was the email I received on Friday, informing me that Blogger had locked down Trish's Dishes because a robot identified my blog as a possible spam site. When I clicked on the link to try to understand what made the robot think this, the news was ugly: apparently, the robot targeted me because it reviewed my blog posts and found them repetitive and nonsensical. Thanks.

I wasn't sure what to do with this little nugget of information, other than be SO glad I put the kibosh on Steve's suggestion that we get one of those robot vacuum cleaners that buzzes around the house on it's own. Back then, it was simply a matter of not wanting to terrorize THAT DOG. But know I know the truth: robots are not my friends.

Fortunately, some live person reviewed my blog and decided that however repetitive and nonsensical my posts might be, they're not spam. So here I am, free to blog another day!

The weekend got considerably better after that. We went to the Red Sox game on Friday and saw Jason Bay, the new left fielder the Sox took on to get rid of the drama queen that is Manny Ramierez. At Bay's first at-bat, the entire ballpark rose to give him a standing ovation, welcoming him to Boston. That was fun. (Of course, the local press will eat him alive if he doesn't play well, but I think that goes with his job...) It was nice to bring him in with a vote of confidence.

On Saturday, our friends Gavin & Emily were in town. Oh, how I love them...let me count the ways. We had an amazing Japanese/Korean dinner at a favorite restaurant, and then stayed up until 1am drinking coffee and wine and talking, talking, talking. Evenings like that are such a nice reminder to me that times like that can still happen, even once you're a grown-up.

And today, I'm vacuuming everything in site. I just learned that the television interview we'd scheduled for next week will be taking place...at my house. ACK! If the camera adds ten pounds, what will our Kylie-fur dust bunnies look like on film??? It's just to frightening to contemplate.

Maybe you could incorporate the Kylie-dust/fur bunnies into some kind of decorative element...like fake tumbleweeds in an Old-Western motiv?

Eouch! How incredibly strange! Trish, I think I can say without perjuring my soul that your blog is NOT repetitive and nonsensical.

Swishy said...

There was some notice on Blogger on that ... all these blogs were accidentally marked as spam. Yours could NEVER be!

Robots reading your blog. Wow.

Obviously you have not watched enough sci-fi movies since if they have taught us anything, it is that ROBOTS ARE ALWAYS EVIL.

DUDE! The SAME thing happened to MY site! And someone elses! I think there's a conspiracy going on with Blogger!

And mine, I could understand because I was blasting the EFF word all over the effing place, but you!?!?!? : )

LizB said...

Aww, yeah, it was a Blogger-wide bug. They're real sorry. :) I work in artificial intelligence and all I can say is computers don't got none! :)

Stacy said...

Hmm, I can't wait until the bots find my blog. They'll probably think I'm selling minions online. Or vampires.

Jenny said...

Hey, this just happened to another blog I read. Why is blogger targeting all my favorite blogs?

:-)

Liza said...

I've seen this before on many blogs. Must be something funny in the blogger system.

So jealous you were at Jason Bay's first game!!! I'm going home (to Boston) next weekend and can't wait to go to the Friday Toronto night game. Hopefully he delivers!

I am just loving Jason Bay. I appreciated Manny's contributions but Bay is so much more my type of player. As is evidenced by the fact that my favorite players are Lowell, Tek, Drew, Wake & Lester -- all the quiet guys. Not that I don't love me some smack talk from Pedroia. Or joining in on the YOOOOUK calls. Or some angry Josh Beckett. ;-) How about that Jed Lowrie??

Reporters at home! That is quite the test of grown-up togetherness, isn't it? Hope it went well!
