Pass the Kleenex and the sedatives

I am just about at the end of my rope with this whole PR thing. Yesterday night I saw that the PR indicator in my Jantics sidebar no longer had a question mark. It had a number!
The problem is that number was zero.
I went to the PR-checking sites and ALL of them said zero for ALL three of my previously-unranked blogs. I went to PPP's PR-checking page, and instead of "unranked," it said "0".
I don't remember if I screamed or cried or threw a meat cleaver, but I was upset.
I left a message over at the PPP boards, asking if anyone knew what it all meant. Did I REALLY just get assigned a zero?
Within minutes someone replied and said YES, it is possible that with "new" blogs, the first PR may be a zero.
Does mine still qualify as "new"??
Have I just spent all these months waiting, tearing my hair out in frustration, waiting, waiting, WAITING..... for nothing??
I shudder at the very thought.
Earlier this afternoon, the "0" was gone from the Jantics sidebar, and the question mark was back. So I entertained the idea that there might still be hope.
But I just checked it again a few seconds ago, and the zero is back.
I am miserable.

I don't understand the whole page rank thing, but I don't have to.

What do I need to do to help?

Travis: Thanks for wanting to help, but I don't think there's anything we can do. It's all up to Google. They control it. If you haven't linked to me yet, go ahead and do that; that'll help, but Google still needs to actually acknowledge the links I have. So far they're still convinced I'm a zero.

I went from "?" to Zero, also.

Quelle frustrating, si?

Your BLOG is a zero... and only from Google's perspective. You rank much higher than that... Probably in the 10 range. Lets go ask that cop you flashed that one time.

Morgen: Tres frustrating! Muy frustrating!

Marilyn: Awwww, that was a nice thing to say. Thank you. :)
