Pottersville's Kaput

No, it didn't turn back into Bedford Falls. The Mr. Potters of America are still large and in charge and I certainly did not get presented with a huge influx of cash when I prayed for help.

My laptop, says my guru, needs a new hard drive and the one he has in stock isn't compatible with my laptop. I'm not going to ask for help anymore because my last appeal resulted in zip. I'm not saying this is the end of Pottersville but I'd be lying if I gave you a rosier picture. A used hard drive is out of the question let alone a new one and we'll be lucky if we could make the rent this month. Add two more rejections from lit agencies today, a missing unemployment check and a job falling through and this is the worst two day period of my life since I got kicked to the curb last March by my own family.

Besides, blogging's the last thing on my mind these days. I'm fighting just to keep our heads above water.

So, adios, muchachas. It's been fun (although sometimes it wasn't) but everything has to end sometime.

Let me re-phrase that: shut up, anon whose posts are are mis-punctuated and mis-spelled even in a spell-check world, and contain no information, merely puerile insults.

It is teh stupids, rwnjs just like you, who created the Bush Depression.

One can only feel compassion toward those with terminal Mirror Neuron Retardation Syndrome.

A sad day for the blogosphere. I hope things will turn around for you soon.

Anon is the Official sign painter for the FauxNews Teabag Express. He/she should be reading the "Drudge" report (*snort!*) instead of trying to impress us with his/her knowledge of politics. SO, anyways, so sorry to hear about the the laptop going kaputz, and so sorry I can't help any ($) as I live on limited resources myself.....but I'll keep positive thoughts going out to you...believe it or not, Positive thinking does work. peace to ya !

Why do the majority of you corncobs live on "limited resources?"
Perhaps there's a common thread.

And why do you "Anonymous" mental midgets never have the balls to tell your name -- on-line moniker or not?

My humble but sincere advice to you, jurassicpork, is to hold on and retreat into survival mode. It's difficult, I understand, but you'll go through the other side a better and happier person. I know it doesn't seem possible, but you're going to be okay.

You could use the library, or a local school.

Local schools are a no go and the library's internet is theoretical, at best. And even when that's on, you're still restricted to one hour a day. That's if a computer is available.

So it looks like it'll be the internet cafe for now.

You know, all of our lives are kaput.

None of the fundraising efforts -- for legitimate, valuable projects -- have worked out.

Months behind in rent, no insurance, getting sick.

I can relate.

But either stop or go, but please stop threatening to stop.

I wasn't threatening anything. I was just stating a reality. Any net access I can get will be so brief and problematic that I can't write the long, well-researched posts that characterize this blog.

This isn't a matter of being temperamental or burnt out or just plain pissed off- this is a likely end result of my hard drive getting fried.
