Nahoblopomo – FAIL!

Gadzooks…one weekend and I’ve failed already! The rub of it is I knew what I wanted to post, and I would have drafted it all up if it hadn’t been for my back still being a bit twingy on Friday night. Fortunately my back is all better now. I gave myself the weekend off, and finally read Unseen Academicals.

So yes, I’m all back, and ready for work…and probably thinking that it’s for the best I didn’t splurge at Torrid. Which leads me onto a thought I had about their facist payment system – in that they’ll be happy to take credit cards, and not debit cards. Now, me and credit cards have had a tempestuous relationship over the years. If I was to try and explain it, I’d have to equate it to something relatively small, compared to the amount of power it can hold over you, and the massive pain in the arse that it can build itself up to be. Yes, it’s a lot like the Death Star.


A long time ago, in a Galaxy far, far away….

Admiral Motti: Any attack made by the Rebels against this station would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. This station is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it.

Ooooh…ultimate power! The power to buy, spend, treat and pamper. And yeah…you don’t have to pay it back for 6 months, so a little attack on it won’t matter now…right? That card, sat in your wallet suddenly becomes the best card of all, lording it over the other poxy cards. Pfft, you have to pay for those! This is just like having savings! Suddenly you have 1, or 2..possibly 3 thousand pounds come from nowhere, and it’s all yours. Yes, we do suggest you use it!

And then you use it once, on a small, peaceful planet with no weapons, and suddenly you know it works, and there’s no stopping you! You can roam the universe, giving it the Big I Am, cos you;ve got a credit card! A few drink here, a little spending spree there, some take aways, maybe a little holiday… until one day a blast goes doen the reactor shaft and sets off a chain raction…and your whole credit explodes! I can remember – one of my many credit disasters – missing a payment, which meant I got a charge from the card company, AND a charge from the bank. Which I then had to pay off with the credit card…urgh.

So you destroy it, cut it up. But the threats still there. Still more applications come flying at you as they’ve heard you’re such a massive failure at paying it back, so they’re bound to get a little bit of profit somewhere! So, you’re halfway through building up you’re credit again, when some little bugger comes along and blows the whole thing up again!

And in little itty bitty debris peices, scattered across the galaxy is where my credit card has stayed. I only had one, it roamed my universe for a couple of years and threatened the very existance of my credit record….until I went on the game and managed to pay it all off. (No matter how hard I tried, I couldnt get that bit into Star Wars) Now I use those pre-paid ones, but foreign companies can still be arsey about using those too.

But one things for sure, I’m never going to apply for another one. Im not even sure I’ll be allowed to. Much like when it comes to George Lucas making another Star Wars film…

    Nah, don@t give up on the Nahoblopomo thing that easily…
    All you have to do is ‘average’ 30 in the month and you’ve done it, see?
    So, tomorrow, you divide your blog in to 2 titles on different subjects, and you’re on the way to catching up.
    A lot of wierd shit must happen in your line of work, so share it with us. y’know, Billie piper stylee, diary of a Call-girl stuff. And less on aliens – all this sci-fi is going over my head (all 3 of them, and 9 eyes).

    Just kidding.

      Err…right – but Im not Billie Piper, nor am I Belle De Jour….Thats all been done, go and get the books and see. This is just a way for me to relax and get stuff off my chest.

      Im afraid I’ll be writing what I want, when I want. If you’re looking for something for your wank bank, better off trying one of the lovely erotica sites somewhere else…

      And, quite frankly, if you’re lost on the Star wars reference, then you’re better off leaving now before I get onto the *really* geeky stuff.

    • Miss M Says:

      PS – You’re also wrong on NaBloPoMo. It has to be once a day, none of this average stuff. But if people are going to think I’m just here to give them wank fodder, Id rather just stop.

    • Brandy aka "Kinky" Says:

      Just curious. Do you normally tell escorts how to write their own blogs?

    As a fan of cyberpunk especialy Gibson, I say more Sci Fi on blogs, its all what colour shall I paint my toe nails now a days, I find your blog refreshing and long may it continue.

  3. Miss M Says:

    Aww, thanks Anjali…I’ll keep the sci-fi flag flying 😀 And that has totally reminded me – I have been meaning to read Neuromancer for yeeaaaars, must get my grubby hands on a copy, and be sure to let the world know what I think on my blog…cos I can do that. It’s MY blog..

    Thanks for the reminder! 😀
