The Madness Abates

My Linux Mandriva 2011 umpty-umpth installation has booted three days in a row, now, with fingers crossed for four, so I may have discovered which geeky tweak I did that scrambled its brains.

I FOUND MY FLASH DRIVES, after turning out my purse and hunting the house over. I was very nearly driven to cleaning my office, but I emptied the purse one more time and LO! there was a hole in the zipper pocket in which I kept the flash drive container, and the container had slipped down inside the lining. So had my pencil sharpener, two pencils, two pens (one black, one red), a packet of facial tissues, a small knife, the key to my mother’s safe deposit box, and my Epi-pen. I sewed up the hole — my seamstress skills just about run to that — and put everything back where it belongs.

I still haven’t found my watch, though. If you see a silver cuff watch with a round black face, tell it to come home and I’ll buy it that pony it was begging for.

My post at Fatal Foodies is about actual book marketing. Like at a market.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      LOL! I hear that! I like backing up on a disk, because I can write the date on it, and not accidentally replace a recent file with an old one. Yes, I’ve been known to do it!
