I hate computers!

Well, the e-mail on my work computer decided to go to hell in a handbasket yesterday so I lost everything. So far nothing's brought it back. Damn depressing and I'm going to have to hunt around to get back in contact with people for manuscripts, articles, photos, etc that were sent recently. Argh!

That'll learn me for not backing stuff up for a month or so, but things have been busy and I guess it slipped my mind. So let that be a lesson to you. And me. And dammit, I hate computers.

Anyways, starting the day with a breakfast of a nice healthy chocolate fudge muffin thing, which I suppose is marginally better than a line or two of coke, packet of Marlboros and twelve cups of espresso coffee in terms of healthiness (and no, that's not how I start my day, thank-you ;). Must work harder on this detox thing, or will die early and/or painfully - Mum's been doing a family history thing looking at how and why relatives died and it's depressing.

We've got a list of stuff like diabetes, stroke, heart disease, heart attack, angina, Sjogren's syndrome (or however it is that you spell it), lupus, sudden unexplained deaths, cancer (including breast cancer - oh joy), etc. Although... it kind of seems like the ancestors either died at a not-that-old stage or lived to well into their 90s. Still, can't hurt to change lifestyle and hopefully not die too early on.

You're right, computers are evil. I don't know why anyone would want to use one. Let's start an online petition to ban computers world wide.
