One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?
I love my Flist...
You guys are really the best anyone could *ever* hope for. You've been so great and supportive and a mere "thank you" seems so inadequate for the help and support you've shown me.

I've received enough packages that I feel like it's Christmas again!! LOL

Thanks to my following wonderfullovelybeautifulgenerousstupendousfriends:

causette, un4scene, caplinsea and Sara (no lj name--help!) for the data cds!!!!! And not one cd broken!!! You guys have really helped make all this loss bearable. (And I'll go ahead and thank bluespirit_star here as well--I know I have goodies on the way. ;)

Thanks to my sis, maubast for tirelessly uploading folder after folder after folder so I could download so much of what we'd shared. You're really the best. *AND* she helped me regain a large portion of my art I'd done over the years as well. Guess it pays to share, huh? LOL

Also, thanks to (god, I hope I don't miss anyone, but if I do, drop me a line and I'll edit this post): nikitas_lair for the pics, mesnica for the tunes, elle_4you for the bods, kailorien for the E-town clip and forum suggestion, to jack4will for the Johnny pics, beautiful_hooch for the Orli images, _sweetangel for the help with Viggo, belladonnaslair for her old *and* new fic to help keep me sane, lala_salama for the Heath pics, to ladymarmalade77 for the downloads, ancabell for the vids, to fileg and notarysojac for their data recovery suggestions, to elflady_2001 for reminding me about OLove, to sirenslily for the pick-me-up of her gift card, and to everyone else who has/is helping me recover data. I honestly cannot thank you guys enough. (Drop me a note and remind me if you helped and I failed to thank you specifically and I'll edit my post to reflect my undying gratitude. Cold meds tend to make me a tad more scatterbrained than normal. I *do* know I'm missing a couple of people here.)

Special thanks to wav just for putting up with my tears, bitching, and moaning and trying to help me recover the external. It was a good try, yeah?

[Edit #1] Thanks to ms_erupt for the song and the lyrics help. *hugs* (See? I knew I'd end up leaving out people even though I tried really hard not to.)

Do not forget to let me know if you get Viggo stuff so that I could send you what is missing! *hugs tight*

Will do! I've honestly been too ill to even pop one of these discs into the pc yet. *sigh* But I'll surely let you know.

How are you feeling today?

oh my jebus! what happened? what did I miss? you lost everything? Did your computer crash?
araestel From: araestel Date: January 7th, 2006 06:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not my pc, but my External HD. Ten years of art, stories, photography--gone. Not to mention all my vids and fannish stuff. I've been in tears since Christmas. I lost over 250 zine art projects. Music, my own fic, saved fic--all gone. I'm still trying to recover things and it's not easy. But people have been great with trying to help me recover my Viggo and Orli clips.

You are more than welcome!

I am glad you enjoyed it!

Re: You are more than welcome!

I definitely did! And it took my mind off things for a time too, which helped more than I can say. *hugs*

We gave it the ole college, post-grad, pre-med, AND pre-law try, to get that thing back.

Wish we could have. But I'm as thankful as you, that there are such nice people out there that have the same interests as you, that were also willing to help.

araestel From: araestel Date: January 7th, 2006 06:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heck yeah! That's why I figured I'd better tell all of the people I'd received stuff from how much I appreciate it.
jack4will From: jack4will Date: January 7th, 2006 06:02 pm (UTC) (Link)

causette From: causette Date: January 7th, 2006 09:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
awesome that non of the disks broke. I did make sure to pack them nice and safe. Enjoy sweetie! Now remember to keep them safe and then "pay it forward" *snort* if someone else has the misfortune for having the same thing happen to them *wibbles* I know I would DIE if I lost all my Orlando clips!!! *cries at the thought*

araestel From: araestel Date: January 7th, 2006 09:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Exactly! And I always offer to try and help people in this situation--so have no worries--the discs are safe and protected.

*hugs again* You truly are a gem for helping me. I was just heartbroken to have lost all my goodies.
