Superblur at work

It was a normal kind of day. In fact, it was too normal it was turning to be a kind of boring day. Nothing exciting was happening and Mak Cik Blur was making her way home on the number seven, reflecting on the week’s events. Aaaah, what a week! It had been fruitful and exciting and now things are quiet for a bit. After the surge of adrenalin, Mak Cik Blur was in a way looking forward to a quiet evening in front of the TV, watching her favourite Eastenders, when she suddenly thought of bringing some spice into her life. That’s it – Thai Sing Laksa Paste.

And with that she stopped at Chepstow Road, and being the dashing person she is, dashed over to Tawana Supermaket for her weekly supply of those paste which has somewhat become a supplement to her the way Primrose Evening oil is to others, and spinach to Popeye.

But things never went according to plan. Well, she did plan to switch on the computer and check her emails first but what zoomed and swished , swished , swished across her screen was something she couldn’t ignore. These were pleas of help from desperate people making desperate pleas in her YM box – “Pls pls pls Mak Cik Blur, we have the banner code from Maknenek, how do we put the banner up? Pls help! Such was the tone of exasperation that she could not ignore.

She threw the bag of Thai Sing and noodles aside, rushed into the toilet and did several twirls – ouch! – she forgot that she has a bad back and even badder (is there such a word?) left leg - before turning into Mak Cik SuperBlurrrrrrrrr – ready for her next assignment.

The last few days, as the business of Maknenekinc Banner Svs took off rather unexpectedly, Mak Cik Superblurrrr was given several assignments to fix and install banners. Cronyism is rife in Blogworld. Bad back and badder left leg notwithstanding, the jobs were executed, much to the satisfaction of clients blogwide and many a compliments were posted, many a praise sung. It soon became the talk in many a tag.

Anyway, one of the perks of doing this job is that she gets to see people’s usernames and passwords. As she sat in front of the computer, trying to help this poor soul, grappling with her html, she had to put a straight face as the blogger obliged her with her password and username. You must understand that she had to maintain some degree of professionalism..but I tell you – fuiyooooh!!! Some of the passwords!! Hahahahah! Ehem, excuse me.

Its kind of strange getting into people’s templates. Its somewhat like doing intrusive surgery with the blogger on somekind of epidural, no pain but could still talk to you via YM while you're doing the work.

Mak Cik Blurrr had to shut one up, while doing Ely's Place. This customer can really yak, driving Makcikblur to distraction.

So, in no time, the banner was up and another satisfied customer. And Mak Cik Blur could change out of the Superblur outfit to cook Thai Laksa and satisfy the angry crowd getting hungrier and angrier in the living room.

Just imagine, two weeks ago, Mak Cik Blur did not even know what HTML meant. In Kedahspeak – apa merga HTML ni? Hentamlaaaahhhh!

Errr, excuse me. There’s another buzzz. Dr Bubbles needs help to fix his banner. You see, Mak Cik Blur also offers maintainance work.

ps. Pls take note. Wiith business booming, Mak Cik Blur will move her business premises from bawah pokok cherry to bawah pokok ketapang.
