The lesson in all this is to not be an idiot like me. I'm a librarian. I should have known better. But I used the same password for almost everything. Dumb, dumb, really
What really bothers me about all of this is I don't know "why" I was targeted. I mean, I'm smart enough to not fall for phishing scams, so how? A computer virus? Sheer dumb luck? But while talking to my Lil' Sis today she suggested another possibility. Wireless. Yep, The Boyfriend has a lap top with a wireless card and I used it a couple of weeks ago. Now, that's some serious lag time if that's how the hacker found me - but it's the only viable "reason" I've come up with so far. So now I have to nag The Boyfriend to verify that his laptop has the necessary security features, and we need to make sure we're dumping our history and cookie files. What a pain in the ass.
Of course it could not be that at all and merely my bad karma. So who knows? Maybe it really was just that random?
In other news, I had a very enjoyable day at the spa where I had the works done. I'm talking everything. I have cute hands and feet now. I had a facial that was so fantastic I almost asked the woman to marry me. And the massage? Seriously, I have a theory that if you're a woman, and you're feeling blue, all you need is a massage and a trip to the gay bar. You'll be feeling fabulous in no time.
