Goddamn fucking useless modern technology

My laptop has died. It seems to have had a virus-induced heart attack and just won't fucking wake up. I've only had the thing for six cunting weeks.

For fuck's sake.

I'm going to have to get a little man in now (as Margot would say), amn't I? Which is going to fucking bankrupt me.

Bollocks.

(I'm probably going to get kicked out of here by the mad aged-spinster librarian any second now for excess use of Forbidden Words.)

  • Why do libraries always employ god awful middle aged mingers with with no dress sense?

    Maybe it's in the job description.

  • The maxim for all librarians should be: "less shushing, more lushing !"

  • I don't think I've ever experienced a "cunting week", let alone six of them...

    Sounds nice though.

  • isn't it still under guarantee Spin? Even the most mealy minded discount manufacturer ought to cover their laptops for six weeks, cunting or otherwise.

  • Why don't you find a geek to sleep with for a week or two - just long enough for him to fix your laptop. Also, this would count as an act of charity and you'd get loads of good karma. And just think of the look of gratitude on the geeks face - a heart-warming sight at this time of year. Blessed are the geeks.

  • that sounds like an offer. did anyone else hear an offer?

    spinny, if you've had a virus induced death, you don't necessarily have to 'get a man in'. You need a bootable cd with your operating system software on it. Better yet, take it to the vendor and throw a fit until they agree to fix it.

    Better yet, go see lc!
    good luck.

  • Did you just use spinster as a pejorative term? Surely not!!

    LC, I'm telling GSE on you.

  • er why?

    Sounds like a good plan. Geeks can be very nice - you might want to keep him a bit longer.

    This reminds me of a friend of a friend who managed to completely renovate her flat by sleeping with an electrician, a plumber, a general builder and a decorator. In the right order. Impressive.

  • that is undiluted genius concentrate, no sugar added. note to self.

  • i heard an offer.

    ooh, it's like dallas, isn't it?

  • I really hope you were reading that all out to yourself in a very loud voice as you were typing that post...

  • It wasn't intended as an offer. I'm sure Spin's very nice and everything, but Bristol's a long way to go for some action - by the time I've got there and finished fixing her laptop I'd be too tired for much else.

    By Blogger LC, at 3:10 PM  

  • Right.

    Back in the library. But i did give my machine to a nice man in IT today who apparently only wants cake in return for fixing it.

    I have no idea what "operating system software" means.

    I bought the laptop from a friend's ex-boyfriend. They have just split up after 6 months after she discovered he was a secret coke fiend. (Not her sort of thing)

    And after he had "borrowed" £5K off her.

    Internet dating eh....

  • sorry LC and Spinsterella, I seem to think in distance in terms of Canadian distances. Lots of people consider a 300-400 km distance do-able but then we have to drive to hell and back for anyhthing!

    don't mind me, just glad you're getting your computer fixed.

  • @Garfer,

    My sister Roberta works in the Amish Research Institute of Information Technology Library out of Froomchester, New Hampshire and I'd hardly call her a middle aged minger with with no dress sense....

    ...a completely degenerate old slapper who'll gobble anything for a pack of wine gums and a litre bottle of Lenore concentrate, perhaps - but a middle aged minger with with no dress sense....never!


    Merry Christmas everyone!!


    Bob


    p.s. Spinny: I will be namechecking you on tomorrow's post - I hope that's OK...

    p.p.s: dpbqo?? Why do I always get the really tough ones??

  • Curiouser and curiouser, I'm at work, and I can get on blogs..

    to think I handed in my notice on Monday, unable to cope with a futrue wondering WTF I was going to DO all day...

  • Librarians can be cool. Our local one forbids people to have their cellphones on. A man standing next to me at the shelves let his ring, and a library creature stalked up to him and said in a very loud voice: "Switch your cellphone off NOW, please." Cue withering looks from righteous book browsers.
