Dragging week ahead: The bad shit

Ok here’s another shit, alas a bad shit. I am now back on my sister-in-law’s machine. No prize in guessing what happened to that crappy old laptop of mine.

What’s bothering my state of mind the most currently is how the hell am I to earn a living now that the bloody laptop has gone totally round the bend. As I stressed prior to this, the fucking thing has been my rice cooker for quite sometime now. Unfortunately it has gone mad and now my bread & butter is pretty much at stake.

I’ve got tons of shit to do and the fucking virus just had to play its game at the worst time possible.

Unlike many, I’ve been very dependant as far computer repairing goes. Now that it wont be around for quite a while, I may have to seek my in-law’s kindness to at least let me keep this till I finish off with my weekly article. Not that she minds but I believe she has her own shitty work to get them done too.

I’ve gone through deeper shit, this couldn’t be so bad, right? I wish.

This has always been the story of my life so far. Just when I thought everything seems to fall into places, faeces and vomit sure to be thrown in together into the mixing bowl just to wreck and mess the party up.

If there’s any consolation, well, I am still breathing.

Here’s to another crappy crap crap week ahead. Hooray to life!

* Any rich blogger/reader out there care to donate? I'll sell my dignity and dance to the tune of Las Ketchup for your sole enjoyment. Anything man...anything for a laptop!

I am a lady retiree from Penang and empathize with your predicament. How about some of us get together and make some contribution (big or small) towards a new laptop for you. I am most willing but can't afford much and I'm sure our friend, cikgu (katataknak), also from Penang, would also be agreeable .. oh dear .. I shudn't be speaking on his behalf but he sounds a reasonable and kind guy. How do we go about it tho?

Raden Galoh said...

cheer up dude. am sure things will get better soon.

worse come to worse, you'll just have to mentally prepare yer work & then park yerself in a internet cafe fer several hours to do yer work.

Tinesh said...

Remember dude, this too will pass.

And thanks for the pack man..Love u! not in any gay way of course lol

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Fergie,

Hi aunty, that was so kind of you. Appreciate it so much but nahh, we don’t need to do that, at least for now. When I meant rich, I was referring to those with extra millions and has no idea where to spend it on. They should do more charity and stuff…hehehe…

Thanks anyway. Its so nice to know there is someone as caring like you, although we’ve never met.


Kak Pi,

The thought of going through all the red tape je hilang semangat.


Kak D!

Desperate time calls for desperate measure!


Bala,

Not possible la bro. I need total peace and quiet to get me job done. As it has been all this while, all my piece were done in the wee hour of the day (night). Real tough week ahead la…

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

T man,

yea it will pass but i may get some scratch and bruises while going through it. sucks man.

* no worries bro. a small thing.

cakapaje said...

Salam bro,

Remembering you mentioned about visiting smut sites and all, I can only remind you of this saying: "Don't shit where you eat". :)

Kopite78 said...

Bro, don't worry too much. Everything happens for a reason.

Great meeting you and the family on Saturday.

Rita Ho said...

Hey Kerp ... I wanted to say sorry to hear about your laptop woes but mine has also broken down, so I'll say I know how you feel, man. Worse is the fact that isn't a darn virus that can be cleaned up. The freaking screen has decided to go to sleep permanently, taking with it a chunk of my work files, stored docs and pictures!

I don't mind not getting paid but hate dealing with angry folks who have the right to be. Urgh!!!!

Kata Tak Nak said...

Are you willing to do a Saiful or an Ezam for a laptop? Man if you do that you will get hundreds of laptops.

Fergie, never mind, you can volunteer my services after all Kerpov here is a buddy.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

shah,

but my ricecooker nowadays are full of shit. how?


Surin,

after a wonderful weekend, never expected to start the week rather crappily.

hey, it was a real pleasure meeting you guys. hope to have another get-togayther soon but with anba around. a lone gooner surrounded by kops and a scum and spud can be a health-haard la...haha...but really, nice meeting you, surin.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Aunty rita,

Sorry to hear of your own predicament, aunty. I believe we have a common problem. The screen went totally blank I cant save anything now. Cant afford a new laptop so may have to reformat and lose some important docs in the process…real sad lah.


Cikgu!

Neither a saiful nor an ezam. I may be desperate but not an asshole! Haha…

Yea, aunty fergie was so kind but I’ll survive this ordeal. Thanks aunty and you too, sir.

Daphne Ling said...

If you need peace and quiet in a cyber-cafe, get earplugs...You'd get your work done, and it's affordable...

As you said, desperate times call for desperate measures! =)

Anba said...

Bro Kerp... will try my level best to join you guys nxt time...
By the way bro Me Wedding was is somewhere around the end of Nxt Year...so me still got a lots of time to prep meself for the big day...hehehe
Hope everythin goes well fer you bro...tc

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Daph!

not quite a bad idea but then again I may still need the comfort of my own room to get the work done. Need a total peace before I can even start to think of what to write. This macha is pretty much a single-track minded fella la…hihi…that bad I tell ya.


Anba,

Congrats brother. Now you’re officially engaged but still a long time to come till you join the loser’s club…hehehehe…

I’ve made it a point to meet you up and hopefully the day will come sooner than we anticipated. There have been talks there’ll be another get-togayther. Lets say what the other have to say.

Salt & Turmeric said...

kerp, sorry abt the computer. apa kata u cuba write to microsoft malaysia and ask them to donate 1 pc to you? who knows, maybe theyd really give u 1 canggih pc!

Anba said...

No worries... i've also got to meet all the good ppl of FFS especially you my Fellow Gunner...
The Day will come...

I guess he got arrested for being Anwar...a threat to BN....frm the way he handled the Debate...
This is what you get if you're too good ....

mott said...

Hi Kerp..I came over from Daphne's blog...

Sorry to hear about ur laptop. May I make a suggestion? A mac..either a iMac or a MacBook. The beauty about it is, that no virus whatsoever.

Plus, there are plenty of second hand macs around....i got mine pretty cheap (eMac) at about RM400. Works damn well too!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Farina,

I have something up my sleeve. No, actually 2. but one of the plans is to seek an audience with a royalty, and will try to squeeze in this little request. The only thing that is lacking now is semangat. Takut nak mengadap…hihi…but serious, that’s my immediate plan.


Anba,

I mat not be able to join the lads for their next gathering. But its ok, since it will be held at mr Muru’s which is nearby me place, I might just drop by if you happen to be around. So everything’s good, bro.

*I can only hope it wont be a repeat of 98. things are bad enough as it is now.


Mott!

Hey there, thanks for crossing over to this humble blog.

Rm400 for a mac? That’s a real bargain. Thanks for the suggestion. Will seriously look into it. But may need to ask around a bit tho.

I am on my sis-in-law’s laptop now but you know lah how awkward it feels on a borrowed stuff. Need to be gentle and handle it with extra care.

Hey, thanks once again. Nice having you here.

akuani said...

I know the feeling Kerp.

When my old pc died, and I worked in Alcatraz in Cyberjaya - 3 years I couldn't write nothing - drove me nuts!

The office laptop became my saviour especially weekends. Now we've got sensors and trackers installed to monitor keyboard strokes, document navigation and urls visited - this must be a high security prison now ...

So me counting my invisible sen sen and trying to figure out how to get myself a PC if not my own laptop, so that me and my internet affair can continue ...

Grrrrrrrr - fooking hell now my bosses know I came to your page - ALAMAK!

Stay sane buddy and I have to say ... err you dancing to Last Ketchup was the first smile on my face today :))

Humour in tribulation always a sure fire cure!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Hey there ani!

Thanks for crossing over, sister!

And likewise, I know how you feel too. Surfing the net on borrowed laptop means I have to hold back whatever intention I have up me sleeve, good or bad. And worst part is I have to erase all the keywords typed on all the search engines once I’m done!

Hey, anyway I don’t think your bosses would mind you reading such blogs as mine. Some people have no idea what cunnilingus actually mean you know…ehehehhe…

akuani said...

Heyya Kerp ... hahaha I know what you mean ... actually have to confess till maybe I hit 30 I was a blur sotong myself heeheh - did the happy bunny with the squeeze but all these terms weren't in my Convent school upbringing eheheh ... now OH BOY! what a vocab I have seldom heard tho' the rainbow hues ehehhe

*high 5 for a fellow 'sufferer'*

Been crossing over actually since I started reading AD's :)) ... entertaining to see what gets others all knickers in a knot - am obviously not cut out to eloquently voice political (or lack thereof) views ... but there's a lot churning in my head :)

Have fun ...

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Anita!

I’m not gonna pretend and act all innocent and naïve but there are certain words or slang I learned way after I turned 30. and mixing around with people like bala, you tend to catch up faster…hehehehe

Politics- arguing on politics will get you nowhere. Its true. Its only natural that the partisans being defensive when attacked, and likewise. This is the main reason I stay away from discussing one-on-one, especially knowing before hand your ‘exponent’ are not politically in line with your choice.

And judging from your arguments with AD, whether or not we’re on the same side of the fence, no way I’m engaging in any with you…hehehehe…

akuani said...

actually Kerp, I try to avoid discussions involving religion, sex and politics - all are uneasy bedfellows :))

I still want to smack idiots who ask me are you Indian or Christian - like WTF question is that????

Another rant for another day :))

Cheers!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

anita,

me too. cant seem to win any arguments regarding politics and religion, having not much knowledge on the latter...guilty as charged la. sex however, is a totally different matter all together...hahahaha

me being a malay, i do too, get a lot of those typical 'defend your land from other races' and all that crap. but sorry man, to me Malaysia belongs to Malaysians. period.

actually me dad is one of those ultra malays but he never stopped me from having my own mind. oh well, great minds do think differently too i guess...hehe...

catcha around soon, akka!

akuani said...

Kerp thamby - see ya around :))

akka is better than AD's aunty tag ehehehh and he's older than me!!!

akka .ani :)

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

haha..bala the senile 40yr old man!
