instant karma

So two weeks ago our computer crashed at work, it has taken this long to get a new one installed. While I was rather daunted (in my own unique paranoid way) by the idea of probably losing 8 months or one year's worth of art and manuscripts, Amy was strangely calm and cool and collected.

"We'll make more!" She said.

I have to admit, her attitude calmed me to a certain extent, but I continued to fret until last night. My boss (formerly our techie until it was out-sourced) managed to transfer everything (amounting to hundreds of images) to his computer. In a day or two I'll transfer everything to discs (like I told Amy I needed to do about three weeks ago).

All hail to Satan (my boss)!
