Well what else can go wrong???? Last week I got my hair stuck in my headset talking to Blue on Skype, had to call a friend to help me get out of them. A few days later my office chair broke while I was sitting on it, and I went flying through space, I never planned to be an astronaut. I landed on the floor with my chair in three pieces. Grrrrrrrrrr. A few days ago my modem blew up, and have had no net access since, carne the crows and shoot the cow.I am awaiting one in the mail, if the postman ever pulls his finger out. To top it all off I was backing up files last night on my PC, and a lightning bolt hit my house, and the whole lot of power went out in my house, and guess what??????????? IT BURNT MY PC UP IT IS COMPLETELY DEAD....FRIEDDDDD LIKE KFC CHOOK. So now I am sitting in a shopping centre on a PC that you put coins in, but it is not working properly, and passerbys are looking at my red face of ANGER AND DESPAIR. I am paying by the minute here and it took 20min for this piece of @###$$$$$ to even connect to write this. WHY ME WHYYYYYY OH WHYYYYY MY LIFE IS DOOMED I miss my Hubpages soooo much,not to mention I have a business online which I can't even see. So if I am not here with you guys, you will understand. xoxoxoxxo
Oh thankyou for your kind advice My Inner Jew, honestly when the pc blew up last night, it was my last straw and I burst into tears. I shall try your kind advice. The clock is clicking away here on this PC it says I have 11min left, sigh. Love u heaps for that. (hugs)
haha I did too that day I used my last one on a vibrating massage chair they had at the mall. Jiggling and going up and down on a chair in a busy shopping centre....Well put it this way was not real relaxing after all when you have to hold onto things, to stop them jiggling in front of hundreds of passerbys.
ROFL it just about sums up everything doesn't it. Twas only last a few weeks ago I set my hair on fire trying to find the hole in the back of thy PC with a lighter. Twas then I saw a flame leaping up thy hair, twas not impressed grrrrrr. Luckily I got it out in time
All these bad things happened to you so that you can write a hub about them and that would be the best hub in the history of HP, or lets make it "history of mankind", as hubs didn't exist before HP. Anyways write a great hub about this stuff and forget all this, go on a vacation if you can.
You would not believe it Misha that bugger of a machine just sucked up my cash, and I have had to move to another one. Now I am sitting beside a tattoo artist that works here, looking at his strange piercings coming out of his nose. (hugs)
Bourbon at $22..... Girl after my heart. Take a break and enjoy even if you have the on-line crap..... Relax, or you can join me in san Diego on the beach Saturday. I am having a huge party, drinks under cover since the yuppies don't want booze on the beach. Clothing optional......
Thanks for your compassion, the bugger only blew up last night I can't work that quick. Geez I have the memorial service for the old one shortly. PC's are like husbands, if you replace them too soon it isn't very respectful to the old one hahahah.
Oh what a wonderful offer, but guess what? Long story but I swapped a power box (well a neighbourly bloke did) my modem arrived, and yahooooooooooooooo BP is back with a vengance. I am so hyped up, just got it back this very instant and with a stocking on my head, heavy rope tying me to my chair I am totally exhilerated. Woo hoo
Honestly haha this is a true story. Last time I went for a spa I some-how sat on the suction thingy, it was malfunctioning and it sucked my buttocks in so hard, worse than a giant hickey, sucking deeper, harder, faster. I was stuck while it sucked me in even further. I cried out for help, when they finally shut down the spa, both cheeks were totally black. Ohhh I could not sit down for a week. I swear this is totally true.
I agree with Misha....it's a sign you should take a break from the pc. Perhaps you'll meet someone, perhaps you'll witness something you can write about later, perhaps you'll relax and think of something you wouldn't have thought of before. Enjoy it! We'll still be here when you get back.
Oh you would not believe it for the first time in my life Eric the night before the surge I decided to back up all my files, on a removable hard drive. A friend of mine dropped it on the ground though last night and now that is going erratic flashing on and off. Oh sigh, life is like a box of choccies that is for sure. xo
Honestly, get some shock guards and a new pc, buy a new chair for $25 (Creigslist ftw!) or use a lawn chair like I did for 1.5 years (sturdy pipes). Buy a backup system from WD, there great and quick, you can back up every night, have a mini laptop that is wireless to make sure you can always access your business. For a headset get an old style over the head usb headset (suggests one around $70) and if that isn't the problem you can always wear your hair up, or go as far as wearing a hat or hairnet if needed.
To relieve your stress, you might want to go to a funny movie or get a back massage, both are normally effective.
LMAO ROFL love your great advice you have suggested. Hahahaha I am speechless,trying to get all the hair in a stocking, do not have a proper hair-net. Oh you made my day..... You should have your own Martha Gardner page..
Blondepoet, you poor dear! I have lost a couple of computers to meltdown during a storm. No fun at all! I like the approach of walking away for a day or two. I have found an amazing relationship between me and my computer. My mood seems to be a big factor in how well my computer works! I know that's crazy, but many of my computer crashes have been when I am crashing in some way myself. Over tired, feeling flat etc seems to get inside my computers bits...... I go away for a while and come back fresh. Love and support to you beautiful one, be cool!
Aww thanks Earnest, yea it was really hard, what made it worse is I crunched on a bit of plastic yesterday and snapped a tooth aghhhhh, I was running around with it in my mouth going beserk lol, I popped it in my handbag in case the dentist can glue it back on, have an appointment later today. (Hugs)x0
Sorry dear!!!!! Even in the face of adversity, you are cracking jokes and being cute. You're a good one, and are missed when you're not around. Hope your PC issues get straightened out soon - I know I was in withdrawals when my internet was disrupted for several days recently. For you------>
yeah rum does fix all things, especially captain morgan. Did you have your pc plugged into a power surge poet? i was just wondering the circumstances cuz it maybe easier and cheaper to fix your p.c you have now? if you need anything let me know i fix and repair p.c's, if your wanting to save your old p.c i may be able to help you online.
Oh wow AK thanks a million for that offer, you sure are a sweet thing, truly, thank heavens a nice bloke up the road swapped a new power box in my PC, and now wooo hoooo I am back, I certainly will keep that in mind for next time. With me sigh there always is something going down loool. xo
Sorry to hear about your week, BP. On the bright side, you get to shopping for a new PC, have a drink with the tattoo bloke (and I'd stay away from the tattoo and body piercing parlors...) and take a mini vacation from the internet. Miss your humor and wit, but it'll be that much better when you're back!(and I hope that it's soon!)
Gee, Blondepoet, and I thought it was just me when my main laptop blew up / froze up anyway won't start all the way any more. (Yeah, at least I had this one still hanging around, Vista believe it or not, so nothing to compare with your angst.) And when my digital camera lens drive jammed permanently (no, I DON'T have another one of those), so now I've gotta convince Pam it's a good idea to use a few bucks from our nonexistent grocery cash stash to snag another one off eBay, and....
Ah, who am I kidding. You're WAY ahead of me in the Hurt Department. (Crosses fingers and raps knuckles on skull, i.e. knock on wood)
Well, now that that you're through all that you can set your busy fingers to writing, you only need the PC to spell check...that is if you're like me and can't live without the ol' F7 key (spell check command for word)
Hurry back, this place isn't the same without you.
Oh Trooper alas and alack I am back, but where have you been hiding lol? Candie and I were on a Trooper hunt last week to no avail. I hope you are not being stalked, was a little worried I must say. xo
Heyyyy honey bun, I am back, I had very few wedgies over the last few days, I actually moved around and discovered a wonderful contraption, called the "Legs." Hahaha I put my best face on despite the adversity that was crushing me like a 10foot anaconda snake in the desert. xoxo
Oh no you poor thing, yes put your feet up and I will bring you a cocktail right over, BP special. Made of ice for hot flushes, with chocolate to settle the nerves, and a special ingredient, crossed with a laxative and aphrodisiac, you wont know whether you are coming or going. Pretty neat eh !!!!x0
Awww MM you are so sweet I could just eat you up like a MM too. xo (Readers do not be alarmed at my terminology I mean eat in a very MM way, do not mistake for lesbian tendencies,haha.) x0x0x Missed all u guys too, it seems it has been like yearssssss.
My week's not been so bad except today the puppy decided to start chewing on my laptop and has eaten one of the keys. Luckily I can touch type and it's obviously not one I use often. In fact I don't know which one it is! I should be thankful she didn't put her teeth through the screen!
Howdy Cris A I bet you are a bit dubious coming over tonight now for my Tupperware Party. Don't worry, I guarantee your safety, the Tupperware lady is sealing all my appendages for insurance purposes hehe. Love ya buddy.
Here is a beautiful rose for a beautiful lady.You are such a sweet sweet hubber.
Thankfully I am back up and running Brenda I have a new power box in my PC so yahooooooooooooooo,I am thrilled, all your love sent signals to a bloke up the road who came and rescued me from my fate ROFL
Hey bgamall, I am so sorry I just saw this message.Do you mean me? No-one has told me that wow that is a compliment if it is for me. I have been told I look like a lot of people but that is a first, woo hoo. You have a wonderful day too.
I started getting a few spammy comments a few days ago. I posted a thread and someone suggested changing my comment settings to allowing only signed in users being allowed to comment and approval before they were published. So I changed my settings. Today the spam was even worse, took me a half...
Is Hubpages experiencing some kind of a glitch these past few days?The earnings are lagging behind. And when I checked a while ago, I had a day where I had 0 impressions which I'm pretty sure is impossible since I have about near 90 views on that day. Assuming the 60-40, I should have about 50+...
