Thanks to the great help of both Marc V and Schmutzie (I admire their site designs and their content), I have now purchased my own blog name. The site http://buggeringcrapmonkies.com/ , she is all mine. The process was cheap and easy.
In the end, I decided to go with Blogger because it is the devil I know. Of course, the moment I decided that, the dang thing stopped working correctly. You will note, I am having a few small problems with my sidebar. I also still hate my template and would prefer something sleeker, but I will keep looking. I found one I really liked, but it was in Spanish and was missing one tiny piece of a code that apparently makes the whole thing work. The devil is in the details.
However, tonight I have spent 2 hours dealing with Dell about how my computer keeps shutting down (oops, almost put an "i" there) and then trying to deal with the fact it keeps shutting down. Also, messing with online templates will cause me to drink.
I am going to bed now. I imagine this will go well considering I am clenching my teeth already.
