Losing my mind!

For the past week I've been trying to remember the name of Zoe Saldana's character in Avatar. It's just not coming to me, and I love that movie. [Don't tell me what it is! It needs to come to me.]

Now, I open up my Works file to write some more on Gypsy Fiddle, and I'm staring at the last sentence and thinking 'that's not where I left off!'

I'm too young for senility!

I was right... still crazy

So, indeed that was not where I left off writing. Lately I tend to write in a notepad at work or the coffee shop and then type it up on the computer. Then I throw away the handwritten pages.

I threw away the notepad, because I filled up the last few pages and typed them up.

Except the whole section was nowhere to be found. I hoped that I perhaps accidentally saved it under a different name, or even that I'd sent the updated version to kurizumaru. But the hopes were in vain.

I feared that I threw the notepad away before trash night, therefore making my work lost forever.

Fortunately, I came home from my parents' and fished it out of the trash can.

I have now backed up the file multiple times. So there! That was still kinda freaky, though.
