Hopefully, My Final Laptop Update

Yes, yes, yes, I know that it has been a while since my last blog. I’m still working on my latest column, and this isn’t it. In fact, this is not an attempt at humor at all. I just absolutely had to post this wonderful piece I just received in my e-mail:

I have been without my craptop computer for over three weeks, people. No matter how incompetent customer disservice has been and no matter how mad I should be about how I’ve been treated, I am just ecstatic to know I am finally getting it back. My life has been a disorganized mess without it. (It was also a disorganized mess with it, but that is not my point.)

  1. Don't you hate it when some jerky commenter writes, "First!" in your comments section or writes about something completely off topic or repeats something that twenty other people have said or just rambles on and on and on and on and on and on because they have nothing else in their pathetic little lives to do.

    I really hope that it's working again for your sake. I would go crazy if I were you. Let me be first to congratulate you on getting it back soon. Hopefully they fixed the problem!

    Have a great weekend yo.

    Oh, and I like Lori. She's funny. :)

  3. This blog is banned in Pakistan:

    blogspot is currently blocked from Pakistan. Blogspot itself is running fine and dandy, as can be checked by accessing it through a proxy server based outside Pakistan.


  4. Jamie,

    Awww shucks, I like you too! I actually looked forward to reading your comment on Joe's post, "Breaking the Chains," because he called me and told me about the avalanche of comments and his best example was about the "freakin' hundred dollar bill that oozed through the screen" :)

    Hey Joe,

    Sorry about the whole Pakistan thingee. I know that was one of your main target audiences. The real problem will come in you're banned in one (or all) of the Baltic States. ;)
