Off Chances, Lost Songs and Stories, Countersignatures, Strawberry Fluoride, and Me and Me and Me and Me

On the off chance that you were wondering, this was the week I…

…lost my whole hard drive, writing and pictures and passwords and letters and songs and mysteries galore…

…was delivered a countersigned contract for my novel with a message from my editor that it is now time for more cake!…

…waded through messes at work…

…though there I made a new friend…

…slept more hours than I knew I could…

…was strawberry-fluorided at the dentist…

…was rained on…

a week my ever-paling roots were revealed,

and I couldn’t care less,

a week without a word written,

though Muji notebooks were secured,

a week where my revisions were given more revisions,

due date asap,

though without a computer to write them on,

a week in which I forgot to exchange the shirt

again

a week I disappeared, and wasn’t noticed missing, except when e said I am acting strangely, and I think it’s because I haven’t been writing, because it’s been a week, a week. A week.

I will now describe all the photos I lost, thanks to Apple’s defective hard-drive:

me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me (I take a lot of strange self-portraits) / e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e / mom / my beautiful sister! / the perfect patch of light on a brick wall / an abandoned building / numerous trips and vacations / a pair of shoes / a pie / an eye / me / and me / and me

    This post made me laugh out loud.

    I think it was the me me me me me me me me me paragraph.

    (And, yes, I know it seems callous that I’d laugh when you’ve lost your hard drive, but… do you have to be so funny about it?)

    I noticed. I checked every day. I did not, however, light a candle for your hard drive. It’s all my fault. mememememe.

    I’m bummed for you on the subject of the hard drive. It reminds me to make sure I get my stuff off site, or at least printed out. Maybe I’ll set up a yahoo account just to send my docs to, the ones I don’t want to lose. I’ll call it Novasdrive, in honor of your old hard drive. And THEN I’ll light a candle that all your new writing will be fresh, and beautiful, and clean, and wonderful and will have in it all the best of your old writing.
