I just wrote a HUGE LJ entry and LOST EVERY WORD.

I hate that little "windows" key on windows keyboard. I'm not sure what combination of buttons I inadvertently hit, but I accidentally closed MS Explorer. Dernit.

That's why I always write LJ entries in a client, which I trust more than my browser. And lengthy comments, I write in a text editor and cut-n-paste.

Sorry to hear about your lost entry. It sucks! I hate it when that happens.

Normally, I use the LJ client. But I was out babysitting. And I would have written it in word and cut and paste, but in this case I don't think it would have helped. It wasn't that LJ ate it (which has been the case in the past). Whatever combination of keys I hat after I hit that windows key inadvertently closed my window. Sigh.

Ugh! After a couple of experiences like this myself, I have to Echo Dr. Mellow's comments. I normally write my entries either in the client SW or in a text editor where I then cut and paste. So sorry you lost your entry!

Normally, I do. But I was at YOUR HOUSE. So I was doing it online. Sigh. It's okay. It's not a big deal. I'll duplicate the effort some other time. Maybe while I'm in Florida next week. Maybe not.

Let me replicate your post for you!

To save you the trouble of re-typing your post, I will draw on our 14 years of friendship to guess what you were going to say:

1. I've come down with a disease which is normally found only in 95-year old midgets from Guatemala.

2. My boss will only respond to me when I talk in backward Pig Latin.

3. My mother is running down the street wearing only a large clown wig and scuba gear.

4. My mother-in-law is running down the street wearing only a large clown wig and scuba gear. She is chasing my brother-in-law.

5. I have recently discovered that according to Jewish law, I am not allowed to go to the bathroom.

6. My husband is wonderful.

You can thank me appropriately when you get back from Florida.

Re: Let me replicate your post for you!

You're an ass. I mean that in the kindest of ways, of course. ;)

It was an entry about my brother-in-law.

But you were close. And number 6 always applies.

Jewish law, does, of course, allow me to go to the bathroom. You'd be surprised, however, how many laws govern even that. Well, maybe you wouldn't.

I sympathize!

As a blogger user,I've managed to lose more than one entry. The system has a button that says "POST," which posts the entry,and "POSTS," which shows you a list of all existing posts. If you hit the POSTS button instead of the POST button, you lose whatever you've typed. It's all very traumatizing!
