Today was a crazy day. First off, the weather is having some serious issues. Apparently living on a Great Lake means winter and spring duke it out on your doorstep, errr…balcony. This all happened before my morning snack.
Like I’ve said, I don’t trust spring here. Now you know why.
Secondly, I happened to find out that the new Pope was chosen while I was working at home. Thanks to BBC, I streamed it live on my computer while working. You can guess how much work I got done. But! I did get to practice my Italian and my Latin, which obviously is a high priority at this point.
Finally, and sadly, I found out today from Google Reader that it will be expiring on July 1, 2013. Whhhaat? A quick email to my sister confirmed what I thought: this is injustice. Apparently, we’re not the only ones who think so as #GoogleReader is currently trending on Twitter above #PopeFrancis. My favourite tweets on the subject are:
“Someone should do a poll to see which service people would prefer to see shut down: Google Reader or Google Plus.”
“six hours ago we had no jobs no cash and no pope now we have a pope but no google reader”
“Twitter richter scale: Andy Rubin leaving Android: 4.0 – New Pope: 6.5 – Google Reader Death: 3,000,000,000.9″
So. Help me out, blogosphere. Where do we go from here? How do I follow blogs in a Google Reader-less universe?!
