The Crash And The Recovery: I’m still digging out from a computer crash last week. We were able to get in and recover everything, eventually, but it was a nailbiter for several days I spent on the phone with tech support typing lines of code they dictated to me (People, I do not know how to code, at all) as we coaxed my poor overloaded hard drive to remount itself long enough to fish the good stuff off it and then give everything a good cleaning. I am thankful for file backup habits forged in the fires of video editing (iCloud AND Dropbox AND an external drive) and for Blog Friend Hypatia who provided both moral and informational support.
Mr. Awkward Writes Stuff: If you’re hungry for Awkward House Content while I catch up, Mr. Awkward has started chronicling his plan to learn/do/accomplish ten things in the next year. You can follow/subscribe here. I am biased, obviously, but it’s good writing. Plus, this week is the anniversary of a really hard time for him, so I’m especially enjoying it as a marker of recovery.
Upcoming/In Progress Here This Month: October Search Terms, the next chapter in the story of the boyfriend who angered the birds, a post to help all the cheaters in my inbox find their way back from the Dark Side, plus “is it mean to not want to hug certain people even if you are okay with hugging other people in a group/family?” (Spoiler: Nope!).
Cats! Would you like to look at some buddies who were VERY GOOD at the Vet and who now have all their shots? Here’s some purring video of Henrietta, a short film about breakfast, a visual representation of how LW #1226 felt about her creepy boss who wanted to intrude on breastfeeding, and some recent photos of the cuddlebeans.
Hope everyone’s having a good week in Awkwardland.
