Was at open mic tonight.  brought my laptop with me.  left it there.  G-d will receive some prayers tonight that whoever found it — whether fellow customer or staff cleaning up — is honest, and I will be able to retrieve it tomorrow morning.  Sure, it’s kind of unusual to be asking G-d to have an effect on the past.  I realize this.  The laptop is a valuable piece of machinery, but more than that, I care about what’s on it.  Sure, it should all be backed up.  I know that.  But it’s not.
