Power Out

Snowstorm last night, and this morning a power outage. No big thing, power is back on now, but I lost a whole morning of work, and that's not good. I am stressed out enough as is with all the stuff on my plate, and every lost hour hurts. If only I did not need to sleep...

POSTSCRIPT. This post is being misunderstood. I lost hours, not words. With the power out, I could not turn on my computer. (Well, actually, I had a backup power source, so I ran off that for a while, but the outage was long enough so that eventually that shut down as well).

And here I am thinking you didn't even like computers all that much. I would think you'd have no qualms about getting work done with pen and paper.

I have never worked with pen and paper. Even in grade school, writing for comic fanzines, I used a manual typewriter.

I love computers, and I have horrible handwriting so it works out.

Yeah, I still have mine, though I'm not sure you can even get ink ribbons for them nowadays.

I learned to use a typewriter back at school when my father called my handwriting an "unholy offspring of runes and cuneiform, written by a drunk Egyptian scribe." He was right about that. :-P Typing was more fun anyway, not only more readable.
