Not a real post, but still quite important.

As you might know, I have a talent for crashing websites (particularly mine) and it always ends with me eventually screaming “IT’S NOTHING HARD LIQUOR AND A HAMMER WON’T FIX” and Victor hiding the mallets while he curses and struggles to fix whatever I’ve done.  I’ve been told that WordPress server/sites/whatever are almost unbreakable and so we’re going to put that to the test.  It may take a few days for your personal ISP to switch over to the new site (which is the same address as the old site but is located in a different place and I have a headache just explaining that) so if you don’t see a new post by next week that means you might need to tell your internet provider to refresh their DNS settings.  I’ll have a new post up on Thursday and you should be able to see it if everything switches over quickly like it should for most of you.  Until then, please go and read yesterday’s post about the best taxidermy finds of my entire life.

Also, hat-tip to the multiple brilliant readers who realized exactly what that strange, unidentified taxidermied creature was that I brought home:

PS.  Scrot is short for Scrotum.  He also goes by Phteven.  I may have spelled that wrong.

PPS.  Giant thanks to Pete, Nate and Nick at VIP, who’ve worked very hard with an extremely grumpy Victor to make this switch.  They assure us that if we still manage to break the site it’ll be free ponies for everyone.

PPPS.  You won’t be able to leave a comment until your DNS picks up the new location.  The blog will be in maintenance mode for a little while during the switch.  It’ll say “Comments are closed” on this post until your ISP updates to the new location.  Once you can leave comments again on this post then that means you’ve made it back home.

Be careful out there, you guys.

We’ll see you on the other side.

  1. I really enjoy wordpress, but then again I don’t crash websites I just kill electronics. So until someone makes a Sarah proof tablet, computer, phone, tv, or toaster, I am still screwed.

  12. I’d like to raise a toast to the future with no crashing.

  13. woohoo…I’m here too.

  14. I have a few blogging friends who keep trying to get me to move over to WordPress, but I am lazy and probably unwilling to learn new tricks–and I might be prone to breaking things also.

  15. so if this breaks who do we contact for the pony. and can we send a picture of the pony we want?

  16. Ponies all around!

  17. Oh I hope it breaks!! I want a free pony. Purple please. :) With a horn and wings. Unless those cost extra.

  18. I guess so, since I couldn’t comment earlier, but now I can. Congrats on your surgery-free transition.

  19. I want a winged pony!

  29. Is this going to be like crossing over? Are you the WordPress whisperer?

  30. WordPress works for me… although I would like to spruce my blog up a little. I think by “spruce up” I mean that I need to become a big-shot programmer and artist to make a fancier site. And while I’m at it, I should work on becoming a better writer, a better dancer, and probably a better housekeeper too.

  31. Where should I leave my address so that you can ship my pony?

  32. Thus the saying, “Pony up?”

  33. It worked! Yay for you but boo no pony for me. I will drink coffee liquor until I feel better. Or imagine a pony, whichever comes first.

  325. I’m new to blogging AND WordPress. I reset my whole site back to Day 1 when I tried to edit a page. Now I’m too afraid to touch it, AND I got an email that said I need to upgrade… wait, upDATE?… to the newer version and it might be challenging. MIGHT BE?! I CAN’T EDIT A PAGE!!! But, I have so much to say, so I’ve got to take it on so I can get my shit going. Does Victor have a minute and one last nerve to lend a hand? HA!!! It’s one more nerve than I have. I’m going to go finish the bourbon now…

  342. I’ve just re-read your post . . . we need to try harder to break wordpress so we can all get ponies .. .. .. tell all your friends to post comments . . . let’s all try to break it!!! Free ponies for all!!! <3

  343. Comment…

  344. Crap. I was hoping for a free pony.

  345. Pony? Where are the ponies? I want a pony!

  346. We Lawsbians are a great website breaking bunch. Just organize an official get-together and we’ll have WordPress at its knees. And then we’ll all get ponies. Can mine please come with a horn and wings? Also, went to a PTSA meeting last night at my daughter’s high school and happened to be wearing my LPTNH tour t-shirt. Everyone who spoke kept looking at me in a very confused manner. It was fairly awesome. :)

  347. Thank you for the hilarious joy you bring to so many that you crash WP just by being your self!

  362. :) Guys, I think we all made it. Or we’re group hallucinating. But group hallucinating about a switch to WordPress would be a bit dull for a hallucination, so we probably made it. I think.

  363. Testing, testing…

    BTW, my husband and his friends used to call each other “Scrot” all the time in high school. Because they are boys.
    Also? Gonads.

  364. so what does it mean if it will post my comment, but not link to my blog?

  365. Hello? Hello? Anybody home??

  366. I have faith that if Target can accidentally give all my credit card info to thieves, it must be possible to break the Internet. Good job Jenny on moving your site without breaking it! However, typing in this comment field seems to be a little herky jerky.

  367. Did i get a pony?

  368. Yay! I’m home too! You are the most delightfully twisted person I’ve had the pleasure to read and your antics and this blog bring myself and my family constant amusement. Thank you for writing and bringing us together to laugh. :)

  369. Completely off topic here…was looking up your book on Goodreads, typed your name in but your book didn’t come up, it was then I saw I typed in ‘Jennifer Lawrence’ instead of ‘Jenny Lawson’. Apparently the two of you overlap in my mind, a fact that has been hidden in my subconscious until now.

  380. I don’t want a pony, but my next live animal is going to be named Phteven, for sure. It’s a race on which of my current geriatric animals will go first. Could be dog or cat, but I think it works either way, for any gender really. I also think I will start using Phteven at Starbucks as my new drink name. My current go-to is ZhuZhu. They always ask how it’s spelled…like it makes a difference :)

  396. Scrot reminds me, all too painfully, of one of the strangest things I’ve ever auctioned off at my Goodwill: a churchkey whose handle was a taxidermied deer (I am told*) scrotum.

    *My own experience and expertise in identifying the scrota of various large mammals is shockingly** limited.

    **May not be the right word; offer void in Utah, Singapore, and the Solomon Islands.

  397. Is it wrong to hope that WordPress does break….so we can get free ponies? :)

  398. I sort of want a free pony, but don’t want to do without my Bloggess content. Is there a way to get ponies and not break WordPress?

  399. Ooohhh….It works! So shiny and new!

  418. Since we don’t get free ponies, how about a cutout photo statue of your balloonist kitty-n-Pegasus?
    Although a balloonist unicorn would be even better: a balloonicorn.

    I could actually display that it in my house when my daughter’s 7yo friends visit without having to babble explanations. And it won’t scare the neighbors. Or the visiting door-to-door missionaries. We’re friendly that way. We chat enough with our local missionary that he brings his trainees here first. His name is Tom; their name is legion.

Holy hell this is depressing because I’ve been struggling with my site since a panic-attack-infused moment told me that I should change blogging platforms rather than have a bottle of wine back in July, but when I clicked on the link to see if Pete, Nick or Nate would be able to help me undestroy my site, I discovered that I am nowhere NEAR a VIP. So I’ll be sticking with my current from of IT consisting of virtual duct tape and shamanic chants to keep my site in tact.

    That said I’m glad that your site is back up and running.~

  432. woot!

  433. Yay! I’ve missed leaving comments! :) I went to tons of thrift stores today, but didn’t see anything taxidermied. I guess it’s not a big deal in Northern VA! We do have a deer on our wall, but it’s just your ordinary run of the mill whitetail. Although he does wear a Santa hat all year round.

  476. Well, I can comment if I use my Facebook information, but I’d rather not. The problem is that I have an old WordPress sign in, and it really, REALLY wants me to use that, and I don’t wanna! Whine….

  478. Awesome. Seems to work fine. I like that I can use my WordPress account to comment and not have to add in any credentials.

  479. Looks like I made it.
    Yes, I sang that as I was writing .
