02:26 pm: More technical difficulties
So...last Tuesday, just before the long weekend, with six people who all wanted to do things on the computer (write, play spore, talk to friends in China on QQ, watch favorite Chinese Potato TV Show, etc.) the hard drive died.

The computer is currently in the shop (I'm writing from the Library). Regular posts will begin again as soon as we get it back.

So...how was your Christmas? I got the Throne of God!!! What did you get?

Hope it arrives soon!

I broke mine in sauteing mushrooms and onion for spaghetti sauce. (You know, if the handle of your frying pan has to fall off, a couple of weeks before Christmas is a good time, so you can happen to mention to family that a frying pan would be appreciated.)

Something like that happened to me...but my girlfriend is still picking which one she thinks I should have. ;-)

I got sparkly rings from the boys, cookbooks ranging from healthy (Moosewood) to anything but (Paula Deen), a gift certificate to a gardening catalog, a wrist rest for the mouse-exhausted, honey almond bath stuff, and, maybe best of all, hardbound copies of my book.

Wonderful choices. I need a wrist rest, the rest of the family keeps putting mine under the keyboard to angle it up because the (keyboard's)feet don't work.

I got a migraine and cuddles from my husband.

(The presents we ordered for each other are still held up in customs.)

I got $100 from my parents, the promise of a (much needed) new car battery from my grandmother, a guide to publishing fiction from a friend, and...

Seasons 1 and 2 of The Big Bang Theory on DVD!! *happy geekiness commences*

I got Spore! All my writing is on hold while I lead what is apparently a tribe of complete jerks to galactic domination.

We are praying right now that restoring our backed up files restores Spore...otherwise four months of work by my kids down the drain.

Spore = cool!

The creatures and ships should still exist, if nothing else, since they seem to be stored on the Spore servers. I had one of my earlier spaceship abduct something I was hunting at one point.

I managed to restore a lot of their creatures, but not the games...which is weird, because the games are still on our drive, but I can't figure out how to get Spore to access them.
