Sorry to be so blunt, but I really couldn’t think of a better title.
Someone hacked my email account…the one I use for my writing. He deleted all of my emails, all of my folders, and sent me an email (from my own account) titled “Christians go to f-ing h—“.
I’ve spent the last two hours emailing my contact list to let everyone know what happened and hoping this person didn’t send out any emails in my name. My contacts include other authors, editors, and article contacts. I opened a gmail account and have to switch everything over to that, but now I have a gmail account and the old address that I used to start this blog and I don’t know how to combine them.
In my paranoia I’ve been changing a lot of passwords, including my eBay account. Problem is, I hit the shift key at some point when I was changing my password, so now it has caps in it someplace, but I don’t know where. When I clicked “forgot password” it tells me my session has expired and I need to login…but I don’t have my password!!!
And now I’ve lost two hours of valuable writing time (I don’t write every day…I set aside certain days and type a lot on those days). And I’m going to lose even more time because I have to get onto eBay chat and try to get into my account.
Yuck. Ick. Crud. This has been a bummer of a day. I think I need ice cream.
