What's keeping you awake at night?

by Ashfaqhussain 68 replies
Back in 2009 I jumped into internet marketing.

Was doing SEO back then, and just before my sites got ranked a google update bych slapped me to lowest of low ranks.

I gave up.

Now I've learned to be persistent and finally got going with internet marketing.

But it wasn't untill I realised that the desire to make money online gave me insomnia.

I would be up all night at times trying to figure out how to make money online.

My situation, my status the way I was looked down at kept me awake at night.

So....

What keeps you awake at night?

What is that one thing that gives you insomnia?

    Nothing much, l know that if l keep up with my business goals, or doing enough flyers per week, then all is well, (knock on wood).

    But sure l have had times, when all seemed hopeless, and the abyss was staring me in the face, (the abyss, is thinking you won't get this to work, and end up sitting on a street corner selling pencils, while your friends that told you, to get a stupid job, while you can, hang around).

    But the abyss, the failure, half a dozen biggies, (the ones that make most cave in) the soul searching, and doubting yourself are all part of the adven,...ahem, suffering that is needed to win.

    So, what keeps me up at night? Probably taking idiot advise seriously, giving up and looking for a stupid job!

    I got a dead guy lives in my apartment.

    Daytime, he jus' lies wherever he fell, fluids oozin' out all over the carpet.

    Night time, he comes lookin' for me.

    I feel him suck out my brains through a straw after he done singin' his song.

    Evrythin' goes blank for a while, like I am dreamin' but mebbe don't realise, an' then the dead guy spits back what he been suckin' on.

    Thing is, straw always leaves a hole.

    So he stitches it up so I don't see.

    Only I do see.

    I am purty sharp that way.

    Mornin' comes, I run to the mirror an' pull back my hair.

    Always, there are stitches, tied in a bow.

    A tiny mark, but I know what to look for now.

    When I turn away from my reflection an' look for the guy slumped on the carpet, I sumtimes imagine I see his beady eye close — like he been takin' a last salacious peek at my wakin' nightmare.

    Beyond that, I figure global warmin' is pretty scary.

    An' I do not much like slugs also.

    'Part from that, I am kinda regular, I guess.

    True, the Blue ribbon ones, are my favorites, well the ones with cats and mice, although Bugs Bunny and Elmer have some classics.

    Daffy Duck, hmmm, when he tees up with bugs then it becomes very funny.

        True, when l am through watching a video on why NASA exploded an atomic weapon on the moon, because some aliens kept trying to write Killroy was here, during the moon landings, and a Wilfred Brimley video on why he wants me to have Diabettus, my thoughts go in that direction.

        Here is one attempt, deep, fried, butter, slurp!


        My guess is Claude, will not be able to resist this one, and immediately go on a deep fried butter diet.

        If l find one with custard as well, then his fate will be assured.

    Nonsense, after reading Claude's last Will and Testament, (end of the roll of toilet paper) he specifically states, "if any person/s, attempts to cause my demise, it is my last wish that l am allowed to finish off the food, that is likely placed in my path, dog, cat food and vegetables, being the exception".

    WTF is a cleave?

    Cleave, a verb, has two very different meanings. It can describe cutting or splitting something apart with a sharp instrument, or — oddly enough — it can describe sticking to something like glue.
    How does one fall off a verb?

      You don't watch MASH much, do you.

      Cleave, living end, Killroy was here, are old terms, but still used.

      Living end is a word describing a Baffoon, and Cleave, is probably a nice way of saying falling on your ar**.

      MASH is G rated, so they tend to get creative when swearing.

              Are you saying the Urban Dictionary is sourced from people who are equally idiots? Or are you saying that most of the people sourcing it are idiots.

              In other words (translated from it's original Ancient Rifflese)...

              Are all these people mostly idiots. Or are just most of these people 100% idiots?

              That's your homework tonight Mr. Riffle. I expect your essay in the morning.

              By the way, in the Urban Dictionary, the word Essay means Friend.

              And for Riffle, a "friend" is a word that describes an imaginary person that will one day enjoy his company. An untested theory.

              An unspecified episode(s) of MASH is even more unreliable.

              Shane, could you please specify EXACTLY which episode(s) of MASH you heard "cleave" and "living end" used in the context you described. If you're unable to do that we'll just have to rely on every official dictionary on the planet.

                  You have completely misinterpreted the phrase "living end". Here's the sentence it was used in:

                  That B.J. Is the living end.

                  Read more: M*A*S*H (MASH) Z415 Episode Script | SS
                  It's difficult to interepret that as meaning a baffoon (sic). I repeat the definition I used earlier from dictionary.com:

                  A person, thing, etc, that is about as much as one can stand; the END, the LIMIT • usually highly complimentary (1950s+ Beat & cool talk)
                  If MASH had been made today, the quote would've been "That B.J. is the schizzle", or "That B.J is fully rad".

                  There is just no way anyone could interpret the use of the term "living end" to mean baffoon (sic), in or out of the context of that episode. Except you of course. And you are wrong. Again.

                  Wrong. What he actually said is:

                  Okay, but don't blame me if you fall off that stool laughing and break your ''klavey.:

                  "Just tell me the joke. I'll worry about my own ''klavey."

                  Source: M*A*S*H (MASH) S613 Episode Script | SS
                  I can't find any reference to what a 'klavey is, however because of the apostrophe it appears to be an abbreviation. Of what I've no idea.

                  Even if he had said "cleave" that would make it the only time in the history of the English language that the word cleave has been used to describe someone's arse. Cleavage perhaps, but definitely not cleave.

                  So, no. You have misinterpreted and misheard what was said and imposed definitions on the term and word that simply do not exist anywhere else.

                    True, but if someone falls off something because he was laughing so hard, odds on they will break their arse.

                    Pretty hard to break a toe or your leg, or anything else.


                    So, sorry l am right on this one.

                      No, you're not. They said 'klavey (as per the script). Did you read it?

                      Here's the episode you referred to on video.

                      MASH 8x12 - Dear Uncle Abdul - Dailymotion Video

                      Both Hawkeye and BJ clearly say klavey, not cleave at around the 4:30 mark.

    Sleeping during the day is keeping me awake at night and also drinking too much coffee.
