getting hacked is not my fave

September 29, 2011

something's hiding in here
Hey, I’m back. Kind of. If you don’t follow my twitter or are not one of my five dedicated fans, you probably weren’t aware that my site got hacked. Wait, that’s not right. The server my site was hosted on got hacked. And everything got deleted. On their website they say they back up the files every night but that is a blatant lie. And so I cried. Then my programmer said she could get things restored within a day or two. I was hopeful. Then she had a family emergency. And so I cried. Then I turned to another programmer and she was on the ball and got things up again but there are definitely still some kinks to work out and all the comments are gone and the last year of archives too. And so I cried. I know I’m not a big blogger but you work on something for three + years then see it all get deleted and try not to cry.

My weekend will be dedicated to copying and pasting the last year of posts from Google Reader and listening to some angry girl rock. Yep, Alanis and me will become super tight this weekend.

Come back next week where I’ll be posting regularly. It will be your fave. Promise.

PS You can still find me over here.

My dear friend mustard yellow recently introduced me to dusty pink and we hit it off right away. We’re now planning a girl’s night out for the latest Twilight movie. Just kidding, I hate Twilight. Sorry you guys, you’ll have to go elsewhere for your shirtless Rob Pattinson pics.

I would have never thought to restore an cabin from the 1890s and then build a modern addition on to it (I can hardly look past gross carpet) but Calder and Starr did just that and the results are stunning. I’m kind of dying over the polished cement floors, the white stone and the wall of windows in the bedroom.

Would you ever go for such a sparse and clean look? I’m not sure I could control my clutter tendencies.
