Just call me Anonymous

I have been struggling back and forth over my computer the past few days and FINALLY $137.00 later, it's fixed. Except I think that I am stupid and didn't save my stuff on the external hard drive the correct way and lost my music and all of my pictures. So that sucks.

Another sorta sad thing is that I was approached to write an article about my mother for a book that was being published at Deseret book. I wrote the article, they liked it and put it in the book. Here is the book.

You will find my article on page 154 entitled "She Never Met a Stranger", but for some reason, they forgot to put my name at the end of the article. Every other article, credit was given to the author and the mother, but not mine. They promised to send me a book when it was finished and they did, they actually sent me two books with this note attached.

Dear Angie,
Our apologies for inadvertently leaving your name off of your essay. I'm giving you an extra complimentary copy of the book to hopefully be of some consolation.
Sincerely, Linda

Well that doesn't seem right, does it? I don't really care so much about getting the credit. I just thought it would be nice to have my mom read it and see my name and hers. Oh well.

I'm so sorry for you, that really does suck... Dumb that she thought an extra copy would make it all better... how about a bunch of royalties from the book, or a new car, or a new computer... that's what you need, not 2 books.

Congrats on being famous, even though you won't quite get the much deserved credit. Uh... have you read the book yet? Any chance this is a good Mother's Day idea? I'm a little behind this year, so... I'm looking for something nice and Fed-Ex-able. :)

I know what your going though the same thing happened to me 1 year ago. Now I store my files in my gmail accounts. They store 7 gigs and are free so if I lose my hard drive I still have them.

How about a $100 bill with a note that says 'sorry'. Duh.

But, you are published! Wow! You beat me!
