Give it Back

You @#&$ers!

Sorry, that was strong, but you deserve it and you know it. Yesterday, my friend in Australia arrived home to find that it had been broken in to. Her laptop and all her jewellery were stolen. Chances are that those thieves don't read this, ever, but I don't care. You jerks. Give it back. Amanda works damned hard, and doesn't deserve this.

No one deserves this, but this break and enter is a little close to my heart and I have to say something.

Oh, and as a completely selfish side-note, she was a BETA reader for my story, which means it's there on the hard drive of the stolen laptop. Now I'm paranoid that someone will read it and try to publish it themselves. Horribly unlikely, but I'm still paranoid.

It's stupid and selfish of me to even think that at a time like this... but there it is.

By the way Amanda, Karma will get them!

In other news, all the correcting for the Midterms and the judging of short stories is done for the month. Now I have to high tail it with The Seraphimé Saga to get as much done as possible before the next batch of marking/ judging comes through!

Luckily, I can. I've had a few ideas drift into my head while I took a little hiatus from writing. Yay me!

Since there is nothing new to report, I'd like to say 'hi' to my stalkers. So, hello to:
