I am Not Currently Speaking to My Life

This is not just what my computer looks like right now.  This is what my brain looks like right now.

It’s a new computer.  It has no excuse to be doing this.


It’s also my primary computer.  I’m working on a back-up system with enough age and tech obsolescence that it can handle a limited gamut of tasks, none of which include the things currently on my deadline list.

It ain’t pretty.

Neither is this office.  For somehow it’s written–the computer does not blow up in the week you’ve got everything under control.  It blows up the week after you’ve gone into a creative fugue to finish the book (Sunday), the week in which the house is upside down because major appliances are misbehaving, and the week after web work has been piling up due to actually being out of the office for a few days.

Let’s just say the Chaos Factor was at a delicate balance point.

The computer, meanwhile, is looking to be terminal.  So how soon I get back all my “this is how I earn my groceries” functionality, I do not know.  The first step is to regain sanity.  (One giant step for me-kind.)

I’ll let you know how that’s going.

PS Yes I have data back-ups.

PPS Yes I have secondary data back-ups.

PPPS Do you?

    (((((hugs))))) And sympathy. And virtual everything that’s comfortable and everything that helps you along the way.

    *sounds of battling with windoze installation and motherboard drivers*

    Whoever thought it was a GOOD idea to install those GAMES in my face by default, and then make it impossible to get rid of them? *grump*

    And thanks. As it happens, I ate an unusual amount of chocolate yesterday… Today is likely to follow in those footsteps!

    Chocolate is very useful.

    Chocolate is useful. WRT the games, you do know that the Windows ads say “Where do you want to go today?” when it’s really “Where do WE want you to go?” Sanity? What’s that?
