Can anyone lend me $500?


My tech support guy just informed me that the computer is toast and, since my bank balance is a sad, sad thing, this one is going to hurt. But then it is a day ending in “y” so this is nothing new in LuLu's world.

I'm almost sorry that I bought those boots. Almost.

Scroll to the bottom and pick your city. You can pretty much find a computer for almost nothing which will at least let you surf and email.

Sweeeeet.

You really need a donation link (like this one).

Hey, here's a thought.

Announce you're creating a Blogger's Union to Promote Freedom Of Expression. Explain that it's not incorporated, that you have no governance structure, that you can't issue tax receipts, that you have no objectives, and that you don't have membership criteria, but that you WILL accept donations.

Sounds insane, I know. But trust me on this one.

I'm sure I have some old hardware laying around if you're interested. I'm broke though from the credit card companies picking my pocket.

LuLu said...

Heh. The last thing I want to do is sound like Ezra. For shame, balby.

Or "Five Feet of Begging"? Ouch, that's gotta sting!

Like e in md said...
I have parts lying around too.
Enough to build a frankenputer again soon. Heh.

What went exactly?

I realize the concept of sarcasm is probably a little advanced for you, fergus. Here's a definition to help you out.

LuLu said...

Pale and e:

Hard drive is toast - my tech guy at work thinks he can dig one up but thanks for the kind offers. You guys are too cool.

No, the concept of borrowing, as opposed to begging, is what is too advanced for ferg. I think he needs a refresher in The Scientific Theory of Reading Comprehension.
