no one could help.
Apparently i wasnt the only one...but still, i was really freaking out...

  18. Blah...I once completely messed up my blog, twiddling with the format..I was hyperventilating for over an hour while I figured out how to get it all back. Luckily, I had backed it up BEFORE I messed around. I couldn't imagine 20 hours of mad panic!! :o

    Reminds me...better go back up a current template NOW!!
