Good news, bad news ...  
Good: It's raining, and Pomegranate, one of the fics I beta-ed for Career's Fest is up and splendid.

Bad: My laptop died for no reason while I slept last night. I am typing this on J's spare computer, which is horrible and which just ate the longer version of this post. Of course I have not backed up in ages, what a silly question! And of course I had my two most recent stories on the desktop, where they are least helpful. THIS IS DESPITE ME RECENTLY DREAMING MY COMPUTER WAS KIDNAPPED AND I CRIED BECAUSE I HAD NOT BACKED UP OR EMAILED MY STORIES TO MY GMAIL ACCOUNT!

NB, this does not for a moment mean that I have secret psychic powers, it means that my subconscious yells at me for being a slack bastard and reminds me that I will regret such slackness hugely, and yet MY CONSCIOUS MIND STILL PROCRASTINATES.

Yes, I am yelling at myself. And now I am going to read a book, print out someone else's fic to beta, and row a few miles on the rowing machine while watching a DVD of French canals. Tomorrow I will call the lovely Apple people and beg them to fix it quickly, regardless of how much money I need to throw at them.

Apple people rock so you should be OK. French canals sound lovely for some reason this morning. I hope you and the hubby are well.

I am sorry to hear about your computer and hope you get it
fixed soon. I hate computer issues. I called my computer
guy, Tim, and he is going to check my computer hard drive
out this week. Must be computer week.

:( I'm sorry about the computer issues. Hopefully the Apple people will be able to fix it and you won't lose anything!

Free, automatic backups. Easy and reliable. I've used them for years and been so happy with their service.

Can I just be glad for a moment that it's not just me? I feel my conscious and subconscious are in a constant war for dominance - no wonder I'm so tired.

I hope your laptop gets well soon! :P

Good luck, may they manage to find all the data unharmed.

Bummer, that. Hope the repair goes well and quickly.

I love it! I hope you have a suitable French-provincial rowing outfit?

:( Hopefully you can get it fixed!

That reminds me that I should back up my files.

Sorry about the laptop! I get so ridiculously upset when I have computer problems, it's scary how dependant I am on it.

I've been on such a HP kick the last few days though! It's great, I've been reading a bunch of cross-gen stuff with Malfoys and Potters, such fun. :D And I just read Pomegranate and it was so great! And I lol'd at Riverview cottage. River Cottage is such an awesome show.

Oh noes! Poor, poor laptop, cut down in its prime!
You should have seen the look on the Tall One's face when I told him you said I should buy a laptop with some of the baby bonus! Bwah-hah-hah!
