I Lost It All
News and Updates
That's the good news first. This is a predominantly bad-news entry.
On the way home, we stopped in a city for some food. I had my backpack in the car with my laptop, camera, iPod, and other various electronic gismos that I have used in college and could find use of at home.
Somebody broke the window of the car and took it all.
So I lost my laptop. With my laptop, my hard drive. That means, all my stories from the last seven years are gone. Sure, some of my Bionicle ones are still on BZP, but everything else is gone. Never to be seen again. Kapoosh! And I have been thinking about backing it up for some time now, but I just never got around to it.
My parent's insurance might help cover the costs of all the electronics I lost, but it would replaced all my writing. But, hey, most of those stories are not very good quality, they just had interesting plots. It's entirely likely that I could rewrite some of the better stories and make them match up with my writing quality of today.
Bionicle wise, I also had Bionicle Legends 8 in my pack... its gone now. I'm not sure if I should buy another one or just blow it off... it was a good story and I have reread it twice, but it's not anything I really need when I could find most of that stuff on BZP anyway. And I should be more concerned about replacing some other things instead. (Although the book would be the cheapest.)
So, in case the point hasn't been driven in hard enough, I have proven myself to be a totally uncool dude yet again. Good night.
