I am an idiot!

So this morning I decided I should clean up my Yahoo account. I have over 3,000 saved emails. Some I probably never should have saved, some are about things that happened long ago.

One of the files I decided to clean up was "Events." I started by looking at the oldest files first, deleting them one after another. I got through 25 and reached the end of the folder. There were still 75 newer files in it. In a momentary lapse of consciousness, I clicked the button to delete the entire folder - and then emptied the trash.

And once that happens, there is no way to get it back. I chatted online with Yahoo and even offered money, but no dice.

I just spent an hour trying to reach out to everyone associated with events I have coming up. Which, when you have two books out a month apart, is a lot.

Think before you click...

Harrison Ford? Who's that?

Our friend Craig lives in his own world. He's had a rare type of leukemia for years. He doesn't work any more. He doesn't watch TV or go to movies. He reads all the time and listens to classical music. He reads the paper, but obviously not the entertainment section.

So Harrison Ford is in town making a movie. I guess Callista Flockhart has been or is with him. Somehow Craig ended up meeting them, I think through friends of the woman he's house sitting for.

"I'm Craig _________" he says to Harrison.

"I'm Harrison Ford."

"And what do you do, Harrison?"

Harrison laughed and said it was the best thing he had heard all day. I guess it was a relief to be treated like anybody else.
