A funny thing happened while I was in the middle of writing a 20-page final paper for one of the more difficult (but enjoyable! I love graduate school!) classes I've ever taken. My trusty laptop, which had lately been having screen problems, suddenly started to click in a rather ominious fashion before my paper--due Tuesday--dissolved into a grey screen of doom before my eyes.
An hour later, Mr. Snub decided it was likely toast and not worth trying to repair given my rather urgent need for a computer NOWNOWNOW, so I headed down to Best Buy. OMG, they loved me there. I walked up to the first sales guy I saw, told him I needed a laptop that minute, and basically handed over my credit card without even looking at the price.
Well, there's Christmas for you.
So after recovering the paper from our external hard drive, purchasing a new computer, and recovering from a delayed-reaction panic attack, I decided it was probably time to check in here. No, I haven't fallen down any dark holes recently, but real life has superceeded my need to write/comment on/interact with fic in any way for the last month or so. I do have something in the works, but it's very rough at the moment and may never see the light of day. Or I could turn 5,000 words into a drabble.
Hope you are all well, and that I'll be seeing you in fic and comms again very soon!
