Tom Tommorrow Looks Back, I Look Forward to (Blogger) (12/31/07)

Cartoon from Salon. Part one is here. See also, Tom Tomorrow’s blog.

And speaking of tomorrow, that’s when I move The Writing Corner to its new home at http://bethwellington.blogspot.com/. How fitting that I’m having to type this in a second time, as the post disappeared the first time I saved it.

I’ve been waiting longer than many, unfixed bugs and all, for Yahoo to provide specifics about its “transition” to a new platform. No word since October 24, when the company promised to:

preserve your Yahoo! 360 blog content, profile photo, nickname, and friends lists during and after the transition. You’ll have a way to back up your information as well as a tool to migrate your information into the new profile service.

Well, “it’s too late,” as Carole King sang in Tapestry, her 1971 album I listened to incessantly back in my youth.

Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time
There’s something wrong here
There can be no denying
One of us is changing
Or maybe we’ve just stopped trying

And it’s too late baby, now it’s too late
Though we really did try to make it.
Something inside has died and I can’t hide
And I just can’t fake it

It used to be so easy living here with you
You were light and breezy
And I knew just what to do
Now you look so unhappy
And I feel like a fool

And it’s too late baby, now it’s too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died
and I can’t hide it
And I just can’t fake it

There’ll be good times again for me and you
But we just can’t stay together
Don’t you feel it too
Still I’m glad for what we had
And how I once loved you

But it’s too late baby, now it’s too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died and I can’t hide
And I just can’t fake it

Don’t you know that I…
I just can’t fake it
Oh it’s too late my baby
Too late my baby
You know
It’s too late my baby

So goodbye at 360. Please come join me over at Blogger. And best wishes for the new year for you and yours.
