The Loser

You'd think that with the advent of computers and search engines including a google tool which will search my own computer, that I wouldn't lose things anymore. Nope. I am an expert "loser." Now I don't mean that in the comic/dramatic sense of The Loser as a failure at everything. I mean I am a certified expert at losing things. I even have saved on my computer some instructions about how to find things.

Maybe I'll post that tomorrow.

But for today, I lost Thursday's post. I saved it on one of four computers. My desktop computer, my laptop computer, the desktop at work (probably not, I don't usually have time to write there), or the laptop from work that I take to class. (Possible. I do sometimes write extraneous stuff sitting in class. In my defense, I also write class note, look up websites mentioned in presentations and email the stuff to classmates for the benefit of all.) But I can't find it. I can't even remember what it was about. So in lieu of Thursday's post, I'll write what's going on today.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Starting at 3 AM on Friday, I've been sick as a dog. First I emptied my stomach, then the rest of me. After turning my digestive system upside down into the toilet bowl every hour on the hour for about 15 hours, I sat in a chair and stared at the wall for another 8 hours. Are you fascinated yet?

Finally today, I'm on the BRAT diet, although the bananas haven't stayed down yet. And I've had enough strength to watch 57 made-for-tv Christmas movies, cried my eyes out over them and finally stumbled to my computer to communicate with the world.

Today, I'm totally relieved there is not a webcam on my computer. Believe me, the sight of me still in my pj's from two days ago would send you running for the Zanax, if not Thorazine!! Oh no. I'm the one who needs the Thorazine, if I don't start feeling better soon.

With that cheery thought I leave you. Don't you wish I could have found the post I wrote on Thursday??? I'm sure it was happier than this one!!

well Thursday's post was probably just not that good.. the computer saver demigod probably ate it up because it just wasn't meant to be published :).
I hope that you are feeling better!

Definitely not a good time for "I See What You're Saying." Sorry. I couldn't resist. I trust that you are better now, as I am commenting on Wednesday. So sorry to hear you went through this, though. Sounds like it was downright violent.
