And...then I realized that it had the only copy of my thesis on it. Okay. My thesis is just a senior thesis, and I realize it's only about twenty pages long right now and it's not like losing a doctoral dissertation or something, but dammit, I do not want to write those twenty pages again. I get kind of lazy about backing it up because, ugh, so much extra work. And since I threw my flash drive in a bottle of water (don't ask) at the end of last semester, that hasn't exactly been an option.
I quickly began bargaining with God. Seriously, just let me e-mail it to myself and and I'll do Your work, I promise. Little AIDS babies in Africa? I am there. With clean water. Hell, I'll even go to South America or something, and You know how I feel about humidity.
Apparently I need to get my malaria shots, because I was able to back it up, and restart the computer, and the weird colors went away and I don't have to rewrite my withering critique of John Cornwell's Hitler's Pope.
Although that was fun. I do so enjoy railing on angry ex-seminarians.
Just FYI, I'm stopping at Target on the way home. I obviously need a flash drive.
