Lazy, hazy days

I woke up this morning to the sound of my fan shutting off.

Normally it doesn't sound like such a big deal, but in my world it means the power went out.  No power, no computer... and no computer... well... let's just say I need a life.

Cue crying.

Well, the power is back on and I'm over it.  What this lead me to though, was realizing I need mah 'puter!  Yes I have my WIPs saved on an external hard drive, an online back-up server and I have emailed them to myself.  The real problem is that I am no longer able to write by hand.  I tried.  I really, really tried this morning, but it didn't happen.  It's not that I had writer's block, it's that I can't write nearly as fast as I can type and by the time I had a thought out on paper, I forgot where I was going with it. 

It sucked.

So here I am perched back on my computer, electricity chasing through the wires and NOW I am blocked again.

I love writing.

I need my computer, too. In my last building I experienced constant, random outages. They would only last for a few minutes, but my computer would restart and I hated that.
