The Great Crash of 2002

[Originally posted to my first blog at Xanga]

Last night was bad. I downloaded a screen saver and it turned out to be infected. It erased key files from Windows so I couldn’t use it. It also erased random files and folders. In order to fix things I had to reformat the hard drive and do a system reinstall. The result:

I lost everything. All my papers, all my images, all my websites, all my gaming stuff. But most importantly, I lost all my stories. At least 3 years of creative thought gone; at least a dozen completed stories, about a handful of in-progress, scores of ideas, and a completed 97-page screenplay. All gone.

It still hasn’t sunk in, but it will.

And now today I found out my car’s radiator has a hairline crack which I will have to fix. That caused me to miss tonight’s Passover Seder.


But hey, it’s great to be here!!!!!!!!
(notice the obvious attempt at excitement)

No stories, no car, but still in love and loved
And about to take the horrible bus again…
