The End is Near

Phew, I’m finally back. Man, it’s been a perilous journey, filled with hacked emails, stolen passwords, a virus encrusted computer, and, sigh, a swimming phone.

Here’s how it all started: One day as I was happily working on my newest book I received an email from Amazon indicating my request to change my password was complete. WTF! I didn’t request a new password.

Upon further inspection, I discovered my passwords for my bank account, Comcast account, author Amazon account, and credit card were also changed. Double WTF!! And, I received a message from my credit card company that my personal information had been discovered on, cue scary music, da-da-daaaaaa, the Dark Web.

Being the composed person that I am (Not!) I swore bloody hell and ate a container of ice cream. Then I contacted my credit card company and a lovely young man walked me through what I needed to do to save my identity before someone named Fritz went dancing in the new shoes he’d charged to my credit card account.

I changed the passwords to ones of my choosing and went along my merry way. Next day I received approval for several new credit card applications. And, and, and, I was accepted into DeVry University, Where Education is Your Friend. Yeah, I made up the slogan, but, hey, I actually think it works.¬†Being the savvy person I am, I instantly realized I didn’t apply for any credit cards or to DeVry. I checked my Amazon account, et. al, and found my new passwords changed again. Triple WTF!!!


I eventually got everything fixed and then……… computer crashed! And, and, and, to add more insult to injury, I dropped my cell phone in the river! Oh, and, and, and, and, and, I dropped the memory card for my camera in the river. (Don’t ask my how; I will not tell you–it’s too embarrassing.)

Needless to say, I wasn’t having a good time, and, yes, since the camera card is MIA, the photos for August are, ain’t no lie; bye, bye, bye.

Now that I’m back on track (I think), I’m left to ask: Is the end near? If so, can it hold off until I get a new memory card for my camera? (I told you not to ask.)¬† I don’t want to miss any great shots of the four horsemen galloping across the river.

Blessed be :{

    Wow!!! That tops my troubles lately:

    2 separate orders of Dominos to Brooklyn NY – one the dominos store credited for me when I got the email confirmation with the tracker! The other he said I would need to call my CC company which I did and got a new CC

    Then, someone hacked my jetblue account and used my points to book a flight JFK to LA. Changed my password to do so. Got a new JB CC and got my points back.

    Then, my other mastercard was used to buy iTunes for $5.00. They alerted me asking if this was my unusual activity then got pissy when I said no, it wasn’t me and had to get me a new CC.

    You have to watch everything carefully!!!

    Most of my belongings are NOT in the river though !! LOL you make me laugh.
