COVID-19 SUCKS

Being that I’ve been quarantined since 2005, I never saw a discernible change in my quality of life after COVID struck down on the world, until now.

I sit here in front of you a disheveled man. I am typing away on my favorite Apple laptop, listening to the music posted below, and the battery is ruined, or perhaps it’s the fan. No one really knows. It’s all very sad, because now I cannot blog away of surf the net for an extended period of time without being tethered to a charging cord. As of right now, my cord is all the way downstairs and my battery is fast approaching the point where it simply turns off. Sometimes if turns off at 28%, other times 47%. No one really knows and it’s dreadfully startling when it happens, almost like a jump scare.

Under normal conditions, I’d simply make an appointment at the mall and bring it in — see the clerk and he’d tell me “you have to pay me $250 to fix this” and then I’d say “isn’t covered under my protection plan?” and he’d then say “no that expired, so now you have to pay me.” I’d pretend to hate the computer, calling it a “piece of junk”, but I’d ultimately acquiesce and hand in my computer and say “when can you have it ready — I really need this thing for work?” He’d then say “I don’t know — we will text you.” And then I’d leave feeling somewhat ripped off; but then I’d drink a latte and forget all about it.

But now, thanks to COVID-19, all of the Apple stores are closed and I am now forced to endure the pangs of a rapidly depleting battery. Life isn’t the same without a good functioning computer and only now do I realize that COVID-19 sucks.

    Do you have a playlist you could forward me Fly? I lik your classical arias and jazz numbers, and even some of the gangsta rap.

    Will you post your review of CUTIES tonight please? Thanks you’re cool.

    Same here except my electronics are issue-free. I trade and work on my houses and motorized toys. It takes up most of my time, wife and daughters the rest. Very little change.

    Apple dot com buy a new one you bastard! Shipped. Done
    That’s how tech works. Battery or the iOS upgrades will ultimately force you to buy a new one. I swear they build that crap in or nobody would upgrade for decades because do I really ever need more than a classic iPod to listen to music or my phone? No

    Why the US covid cases are so high? I’d say better get a grip on that.
    Maybe it’s over-touted and God exists to evermore protect the standard of living, nobody knows. But I hear scintering sounds.

    Russia expert Stephen Cohen tried to stop the BushBama era re-entry into the cold war that Ronald Regan had ended. He was a giant. He too died on Friday. Not a word on the deep state’s MSM about the man. Not one word.

    Well, at least now that you ended your adult beverage quarantine, you’re not stuck with a latte and can address the same situation in the same manner we do.

    Oh and if you ever get a chance … back it up!
