And lo, unto me a revelation was made as to the workings of the universe itself...

Finally, after WEEKS in a creative funk, I sat down today and wrote.

I wrote out a sketch idea that we had come up with in last week's writing meeting for the sketch group.  And I came up with two different takes on it, so I wrote out two completely different versions of the same idea.

And the the universe looked down and said (as it is often want to do), "Wait!  Klae cannot make forward progress on anything he does right now!"  And the universe exploded my computer right as I hit the save button.

I can't tell you how much I wanted to scream and throw things and cry.  But I didn't.  I looked the universe in the eye and gave it a mighty finger (you know which one), and started troubleshooting.

It seems (I can't confirm this yet) that it's one of my secondary hard drives that caused the crash.  I'm checking disks right now, and have two of them completely disconnected.  So... keep your fingers crossed that it wasn't the data drive, because even the backups won't have today's work on them.

I fought the Laws of Physics and... well, I just might win, we'll see...
