The "Why I Have Neglected My Blog" series:
I lost my camera cable. Instead of leaving it plugged into the USB port where I always know where it is, I coiled it up neatly and put it in my drawer and promptly forgot about it.
I am shocked - SHOCKED, I tell you - that it didn't suddenly spring out of the drawer the second I decided to buy a new one.
But I didn't buy a new one because, eh, I wasn't really blogging that much anyway.
