Not sure if you have this one, but Frankie Foster's (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends) birthday is 7/25/85 according to her driver's license.

I’m ashamed to admit that I had actually never heard of this show!  Sadly, I’m not up to speed on more recent cartoons (though I have no doubt that will change as my son gets older).

So, thank you parkinglotpotato!  It’s now in the queue.

Um,.. on your Western Zodiac page you have "CEO: Bruce Wayne (2/19)" under "Aquarius, The Water Bearer (January 20 - February 18)" when he should be under "Pisces, The Fish (February 19 - March 20)."

 … wow.  I simply cannot believe I did that.  I just … no words.  They should have sent a poet.

Thank you very much .  I literally have no idea what I was thinking.

Hello everybody!  So, I wanted to keep you all apprised on what’s been happening.  Full details are available under the “Read More” but, for those who don’t need all the nitty gritty:
I’m going to try and get a couple of posts up in the next couple of days, and then full schedule should resume by the end of the week.
I also wanted to say thank you to all of those who have sent messages and reblogs offering help and/or support.  You are all truly amazing!

It was essentially two separate events that made everything fall apart.
First, I injured my back at work.  It’s not a permanent injury, but it’s serious enough that they’re sending me to physical therapy and they put me on pain killers and muscle relaxers.  After this occurred, any time not spent at work was either spent in pain or zonked out because of the pills.  This allowed the buffer I had built up in the queue to dwindle to nothing.
Secondly, on the last day of the queue, I had set aside time to work ahead again.  I had the day off due to doctor’s orders and my baby boy was taking a nap.  I went to my computer and … nothing.  It said I needed to reboot and reinstall everything.
I took it into the shop and found out on Friday that, thankfully, the data is safe.  That was my primary concern since, in addition to all of my Fictional History work, I have all my other writing, my research, family photos and videos, my dad’s music … basically my whole life.  Losing my computer would be like a microcosm of a house fire.  I had some of it backed up elsewhere, but not nearly enough and none of the most recent stuff.
The ultimate problem with the computer was that some part inside broke and there was a failure communicating with the hard drive.  This is a relatively easy fix, but they didn’t have the part on hand and we live in Alaska, where there’s no such thing as overnight shipping.  I should have my computer back, good as new, by Monday or Tuesday (depending on when the part arrives).
In the meantime, I made a point of purchasing an external hard drive and will be backing up everything so this kind of nonsense doesn’t happen again.

Attention Friends and Follower

I’m so sorry to have to do this, but we’ve had an unexpected crisis here.  I’m doing what I can to keep going, but I’m afraid I don’t currently have access to … well, any of my resources and I’m starting totally from scratch.  I just wanted to forewarn you all that posts were going to be sporadic for a bit.

Hopefully, this shouldn’t be for more than a couple of days, and I’ll see if I can back date the posts that I miss.  In the mean time, feel free to keep writing and sending suggestions and I’ll respond as often as I can.

Thank you all!  I’ll keep you updated.
