Explosions and Being Human

Posted by on September 18, 2010 at 1:15 pm.

Yesterday was blow-up day and today seems to be (at least so far) recovery.

I added a page to PaperBoxbooks.com and then went to work on one of my new projects.

Shortly afterward, Wil, my roommate came home. I cheered – it was suppertime and the new project was going well. It looked like it was going to be a great night.

Then almost immediately, I discovered that PaperBox Books had exploded with a nasty “500 internal error” claiming I’d changed things that I didn’t. I uttered a few nasty words that I’m sure Mom would never approve of.

Half an hour later I gave up, not willing to muck things up any further than I possibly already had.

It wasn’t pretty.

Even though, it’s been almost a month since I lost my Dad, my emotions are very close to the surface. For someone who works on logic and represses, dealing with wayward feelings is disconcerting.

Operation Avoidance:

Not willing to take my ire out on poor Wil, I lit stuff on fire instead (specifically BBQ coals), it was very therapeutic.

After supper, plugged in my headphones and watched a few more episodes of BBCs ‘Being Human’. A television dramedy about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost all living together trying to fit in.

It did the trick. When I woke up this morning, I didn’t feel like chucking either of my computers out the window. I talked to Lanh Ng at Hostgator, my hosting company, and he fixed me right up.
