  1. Had the same experience with the Tokyo Eggs two weeks ago, then woke up in the night's middle with an Aha!

    1. this was late at night, I suddenly couldnt open google, chrome, or the blog. all my passwords were gone for anything google related.
      Mine was more of an OMG and that ugly feeling you get when you realize you no longer exist except in your own imagination...I opened some stuff and closed some stuff and suddenly it was all back.

      "No, Ms. Thompson, your x-rays are all clean, you could live another 30 years"...
      "Actually, ma'am, the bank wanted to talk to you about your account; it seems someone has been anonymously adding large sums of money to your (meager) savings and we just wanted to make sure you were aware...ma'am?"

      That kind of feeling. =)

      My Aha was more of an ohhhh thank you Gods of google...

  2. That is strange. Did you find out what happened?

    1. No idea. I must have pushed the wrong button or hit a 'delete me" key and I just started opening doors and staring at stuff. Stare hard enough, and sometimes it works.
      Not a pretty feeling.

      This is not the sort of thing I can ask my husband to fix, since he feels about Google and Chrome pretty much the way I feel about Baby Bush, Trump, and Hillary.
      I figger, if I got into it, I should be able to get out of it.

  3. This happens to me once in a while, when I insert a packed thumbdrive and get the message all these files are empty.. it's a cruel hoax, since if I breathe and wait, suddenly they all start appearing, looking nonchalant and polishing their nails on their lapels, Joe Cool.

    1. I know that feeling. Sit, wait, Be Calm. Make Coffee. Reboot. hunt for the ball peen hammer.
      Take away their sunglasses, they shape right up. You can't be cool if people can see you blink.

  5. well I try to have as little to do with the mechanics of WordPress as I can, since every time i try to get fancy over there I invariably turn over a coffee cup, or spill soup on someone's new outfit...but yeah, I know what you mean

  6. I hate when something goes wrong with my technology - it's almost a sense of panic!

  7. oh yeah. let's push ALL the buttons, in no particular order.
    I'm just stubborn enough to want to fix it myself, but bright enough to know I probably can't...
    If you don't know what you've done, it's hard to know where to go, lol.

    And when it somehow magically repairs itself, that means this could happen again, and... well...

  8. We've all been there! Glad you made it back.

    1. Thanks, Tilly. So am I. Every time this happens I assume this could be the end of all of it. The best part is when you finally get it all straightened out--again--and you get a breathless and cautionary email that says, "your password was just changed. Was this you?"
