Trust Me Baby I'm Clean

I have a few things going on here. First off a reminder, back up your shit! I had a trojan and while the girl on girl porn was great for a few moments, it meant that I had to have a dear friend wipe my computer. Hi Steve! Luckily, I had saved everything to disk, online, and flash drive. Thank God! I had it wiped pretty quickly because with my luck it was only a matter of time before the child porn started popping up. Illinois is cracking down on it, which is a good thing but you know my luck.
Secondly, I retract my statement! I have never had to do this before but here we are. I have NO car skills whatsoever. Wiping the car's computer only meant that we went to Gurnee and got into some really fierce traffic and then broke down. It was one of the scariest rides in my life. And wouldn't you know, when we got back in Antioch the damn thing worked perfect. The F***us is now going for scrap!
And last but not least, DJ's Xbox 360 got the rings of death for the third time. They tried to charge him a minimum of $120 to fix it. That's where I got involved and he is getting another refurbished one for free. Hmmmm, I wonder how long this one will work.
So that's my three electronic problems. If I don't get back to you anytime soon, you know why.
I'm off to drink,

Hi there! I know all about the rings of death with the XBox 360. We got a new one and we'll see how long this one lasts! I feel your pain, also, on the trojan. Aren't those viruses just lovely?? UGH!!

Have a terrific Monday, anyway. While you're drinking, have one for me. I have a meeting at the high school today for teen daughter. Make it a double...straight up! :)

I'm glad you got your computer fixed. I fear getting a virus on my computer--every time it acts up, I wonder!!
I'm so sorry the car is acting up again. I thought you might catch a break this time and have it be an easy fix. I'm glad y'all got home safely.
I hope this week is much better than this past weekend. Take care.

I am so sorry to hear that you are not the auto mechanic genius that we thought.
We had a Chevy Lumina APV(their minivan). After about 4 yrs of faithful service it developed a real nasty habit of the engine shutting off...usually as you were driving 60mph down the interstate. Try having to stop a vehicle hurdling 60mph down the road when the auto brakes and steering lock up because the car has turned itself off!!! No one who tried to fix it ever found why it did that and how to get it to stop. Needless to say, that car got sent to charity and chopped up for parts very shortly afterwards.
So what are y'all going to do now....replace or just go with the vehicles that are left?

I hate all things electronic that require work, attention, upgrading &/or replacement on a regular basis.
This would include everything with a computer inside it(stove/oven, tv, car, gaming systems, cell phone, etc)....and yes, computers. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are evil incarnate.
After going through 2 x-boxes #2 son quit them cold turkey. He still rues the day he sold his WII to buy an XBox.

I'm so sorry the porn had a down side! I'm glad you got it fixed!

A.Marie-The xbox is a piece of crap! We are always fighting with it. And on top of it I wasted an hour arguing that we shouldn't have to pay $120 to get it fixed when they sold defective equipment and then replaced it with someone elses broken xbox. Grrrrr!
There will be a drink waiting for you!

SonyaAnn said...

Sheila-I'm always running a scan. I got it from Java. Downloading coupons is what got me!
I too, hope this week is better!

SonyaAnn said...

slugmama-I know I'm not smart! Who knew?
We have had real good luck with our Lumina so far. I hope that it doesn't quit on us anytime soon. Why does it always have to be something so weird!
And down with the Xbox 360! DJ wanted to shoot it. I was so pissed when I called them. Trying to get money out of a 14yr old! Pisses me off still. Here's an idea, fix the f***ing problem or stop selling them!

SonyaAnn said...

nicole-thanks for stopping over.

SonyaAnn said...

McVal-LOL! Den called last week and asked what I was doing and I said looking at porn. And I was speaking the truth. I think he liked it until I explained it!
Have a great week!

Oh my.... that stinks! I hope today is a better day!!

SonyaAnn said...

Together We Save-I got two refund checks so my mood perked up a bit!

Frances said...

SonyaAnn, so sorry you got trojans. I had some a while back and they were a b!tch to get rid of. I promise I didn't send them to you!

Sorry to hear about the Focus.
