...I need to lie down.

So. My borderline panic attack of the day.

I'm talking to satyrblade about Shayara, and I go to pull up Fenris's page on shayara.com....

...and Shayara.com is GONE.

"Parked free by GoDaddy".

So I wig out. As you do. And tried to get into the GoDaddy account, but apparently it never got merged with my other account. And the e-mail address associated is ******@emory.edu.

And neither Adam nor I have access to our Emory accounts anymore.

So. Wigging out.

I call GoDaddy - and you know it's serious, because I voluntarily made a phone call (I have phone-phobia like whoa). And I wait. And I explain in a rush, there are two accounts, I don't know the last four digits of the credit card that was used in 2002, I don't know the PIN, because it isn't my usual PIN...

...wait...

*calls up encyclopedic knowledge of Adam*
*access WWAD database*

And yes, what I think Adam's PIN would be is indeed the PIN.

So we can renew. Great.

...my credit card is gone.

Fuck. Adam has my credit card. Adam's away from the computer. I call Adam, still on the phone with GoDaddy dude, and he says "I don't have the card."

And I am like "Where. Is it?"

And it is on the bookshelf, on top of my keys. (Which is nowhere near my purse.) So I renew the domain name for ten years. And then go about the lengthy process of merging accounts and shifting nameservers and getting the site back up.

And I'm *sick* and can barely speak, and I keep apologizing to the guy "if I don't make sense", and he takes pity on me and is very helpful.

And it's done.

But I swear my heart skipped a beat, and not in the good way, when I thought my site was *gone*...

That. Could've been much worse.

Still pretty panic-inducing.

I am going to go take a bath.
