Phished

There will be no special entry today. I awoke from my siesta to find that my password had been stolen and that I was sending out some silly information to everyone about a free Ipad or something. I hope no one fell for it.

As a result I've been spending hours tracking down all the places where my password is accepted and trying to change it. It's no easy matter in some places such as bank accounts and credit card accounts. It has been so aggravating that I skipped the tea and went right to the wine.

There's no telling where it came from or who's responsible but I hope the bastards spill mustard in their laps and lose the key to the men's room.

The whole thing has been a major distraction and so I haven't been able to write any purple prose for you today. Who knows, you might consider it a blessed relief. No esoteric elbow scratching for once, no urging toward unexplainable enlightenment, no passionate pushing into uncertain activity and (thank God) no theatre stories.

I'll be back.

What a rotten thing to happen! I hope you have luck in locating it, and I hope the bastard who stole it has an avalanche of bad luck!

Bummer! What a nasty thing. There are some really rotten people out there doing such a thing.

So sorry. Same thing happened to me, only I advertised Viagra. Ugh. Hope you have a better day today, DB =) Hugs!

I'm sorry to hear that, D. I hope you were able to set things right. They can be very clever with their little schemes.
