The Dog Ate My Homework

Pop Quiz!

If I were to tell you that, in the past week, my harddrive crashed, I became so ill I needed paramedics, AND I broke both of my arms, which of the following would you believe?

a.  I am the worst liar in the world.
b.  I am the worst writer in the world.
c.  I am mocking you.
d.  I am seriously unlucky.
e.  All of the above.

Sorry, it's none of the above.  In fact, all of these things actually happened in the past week, and it is so rediculous that I haven't told anyone in real life yet because I don't believe it myself.  And because I would then have to spend all this time reassurring them it isn't as bad as it sounds: yes, I broke both my arms, but just small fractures of the left radial head and the some bone in my right hand, neither of which require casts, and I can already type (and I have insurance); yes, I thought I was having a coronary event, but it turned out I'm just a lightweight who wigs on Vicodin (taken for the broken bones) and the firemen were very nice; and yes, my harddrive crashed, but I'm a professional and lost minimal data - it's just a time-consuming inconvenience getting the warrantee replacement set back up.

So anyway, it's all good.  Sorry it's been so long since I've blogged.  I've just had to put the new business first.  I hope that by the end of the summer I'll have time to write again, and hence to have something related to writing to blog about.
