Yesterday I got back from a wonderful weekend refereeing the entire OSCW show (next show September 4) with the New Girlfriend (Oh, I didn't mention her? I'll come back to that as soon as I come up with an appropriate pseudonym for her) to discover my computer had crashed, taking with it my pictures, my music, some stand-up comedy stuff and some writing for this blog.
I'm most distraught about the pictures and the music. The comedy and writing stuff sucks, but I have faith in my ability to produce more.
But it was not the timing I wanted.
I'm grateful for a couple things though. That my sister and mother had bought me a laptop recently. Except for the brand-new stuff, most is backed-up on there.
I'm also grateful because it's a reminder of how quickly things can change. It's a reminder to try and appreciate things.
It's also a reminder to back stuff up.
Oh and I have stories for you. Many many stories.
Hopefully some of them make it up here. Sometimes I'm so busy living I don't have time to write things down.
Which is disappointing as a writer, but all in all it's not the worst problem in the world to have.
