We interrupt to bring you this really very important announcement...  
I am officially writing this not on an iPad! It's only been a week, but that week has included a lot of [community profile] femslashex tag wrangling via mobile browsers and I have never been happier to have a working laptop before oh my fucking god.

*fed up hands*  
A+ to the universe for waiting until after I'd mostly zero'd out the nominations queue for [community profile] femslashex, but mega mega F in general for making my harddrive fail yesterday. Thumbs up, super thrilled, all going awesomely over here. An hour of late night Apple chat later and I had a Genius appointment for Saturday and the realisation that I'd have to spend my morning on the phone with more people because apparently my AppleCare wasn't properly registered. So that was fun. It's sorted now thank god so they have to fix the damn thing, but also refurbished or not the year old laptop that never leaves my house and has a cooling pad shouldn't suddenly make rattling noises and forget it has a harddrive. Wtf.

Cross fingers and pray/think good vibes at me. Nothing super crucial is going to be lost if the data can't be accessed, but there is about 10k of unbacked up draft words in there plus the annoyance of resetting up all my software and copying over all. my. fucking. recent. photos. off memory cards all over again and stuff. Good lesson to self to back up data more often, blah.

So my week has suddenly gone from Do All The Things to motherfucker I need to review what fic deadlines I might need to drop out of now, remember how much I hate actual writing on my iPad, and also be cranky about all the stuff that is harder to do on mobile like spreadsheets and modding and life. Not being able to play Netflix on one device while I use the other is also making me unnecessarily cranky.

This would of course be less annoying (though like, it's all covered, it's fine really. I've had more bothersome computer failures even if I'm irritated as all hell about it) if my wrist was all the way instead of only partially improved. So most of my offline activities are still a no go as well. Joy.

Unrelated more positive side note: also started my second bujo this week, and I have upgraded to a dotted Leuchtturm and I so get all the fuss. Also pruning and editing my collections when carrying stuff over was more fun than is reasonable. Although possibly not having a working laptop or a working wrist is driving me round the bend with boredom already, so y'know.
