I wanted to make an actual survey, but I’m a little nervous about doing anything fancy on Precious this morning. Unfortunately, Precious and I and the Beneficent Mr. Hall had a bit of a computer snafu this weekend and even now, I’m typing with somewhat shaky fingers.
(Oh, okay. Here’s what happened, the short version: Mr. Man was copying my files on to his super-duper, made of titanium and other super substances I can’t even spell, used-only-for-work, flashdrive. And suddenly, I was like, “Hey. Where are my files?” And he was like, “Calm down. They’re on the flash drive.” And then I was all, “I think I’m remarkably calm, considering that the LAST SEVEN YEARS OF MY LIFE IS MISSING.” And then he was all, “They’re here somewhere. They can’t just disappear.” But apparently, they CAN just disappear, even from a super-duper, made of titanium and other super substances I can’t even spell, used-only-for-work, flashdrive. Fortunately, my other super-cheap and made of plastic flashdrive held everything up to January of 2013. And I use Dropbox, though for reasons I still don’t understand, it had quit automatically saving my files from…January 2013. BUT, because I do not trust certain technologies–with good reason, I think–I always email major stuff to myself. So in the end, I lost a couple Chicken Soup stories, which, all things considered, was not too bad. Mind you, I’m not blaming Precious. I’m not even blaming Mr. Man. I’m blaming the super-duper, made of titanium and other super substances I can’t even spell, used-only-for-work, flashdrive. I would stick pins in it, except… well, it’s made of freakin’ titanium, y’all.)
So. Back to the survey.
As you may have noticed, I’ve been playing around with my blog title. I’d intended all along to change the name to fit with the theme because I really like this fishy look. I mean, this time, I’m sticking with the theme forever.
Probably. Anyway, I can’t decide which title I like best and I’m throwing it out for y’all’s opinion. (And yes, y’all’s is a perfectly good word, used extensively in Georgia and other states below the Mason-Dixon Line.) Feel free to weigh in with any thoughts in the Comments section (and pretend that you made your choice and a little message popped up saying, “Thanks for taking this survey!”)
Blog Titles Under Consideration:
Cathy C. Hall
Fishing for the Writer Within
Fishing for the Write Idea
Fishing in the Write Spot
Stay tuned for the big reveal. (Okay, it won’t be like a huge reveal. It’ll be more like an average reveal. But do not let my tendency towards hyperbole in any way affect your opinion of the laptop snafu story. Trust me. I toned that story way down, just in case the kiddies were reading.)
