Vanished, or The Story of Today's Post

I came to my posting forum this morning with different intentions than the one I am currently implementing as I type, haphazardly, into the void before me.

See, I had a post all set to cut and paste into this space, but it's gone, like an icy frappe on a sultry afternoon. The file is still there, with the text of all my other recent posts. But nary a phrase or even a bit of punctuation remains from what I intended to post today.

You'll be among the first to know should it materialize. In the meantime,enjoy a frappe, or perhaps a green tea if that's your thing, and I'll see you tomorrow.

P.S. If you came for a story and find yourself disappointed, the good news is, I used to blog a lot about missing things. Here are a couple of my favorite posts from the Things Gone Missing file:

Sans Linens
Tupper-where?
Madison, Wisconsin, More Than Just Cheese, or The Turkey's Missing

Funny, when your blog initially came up in my reader I clicked on it only to be told that your blog was unavailable. Prelude, I guess, the the missing post!

I wonder where the heck it went! That's the most outrageous thing!

i am rushing out the door to take the girls to camp, so I don't have time to read the links now...but I have had this happen umpteen times. I have these fabulous ideas, and POOF---like a sprinkling of forgetful dust, they are gone in an instant. Damn.

but still comforting to know I'm not alone.

I would lose my head if it was not attached--or my boobs, as my husband likes to say.
