I am writing this with so much love!
For you awesome possies who are following [my tweets], I’m sure you guys already know the tragedy that struck me one fine night at 11.59pm.
Wah sounds so mysterious but actually, blinkberry (yes I have a pet name for my Blackberry) fell into the washing machine and was tortured immensely inside. Try getting hit against the walls left right and center drowning with ultra-strong Dynamo washing detergent and the force of the washing machine’s rapid spin, tumble and wash.
For 1 entire week and 2 days, I was relieved from my blinkberry. I felt disconnected to the world after such heavy usage with it as ever since purchase, I grew very attached to it already. I eat with it, sleep with it, drive with it and even poo with it. My alarms, event schedules, reminders were all inside. Yes it was no surprise that I was heavily dependent on blinkberry.
So being thankful, I feel like being extra informational today. Imma share what happened and to all the Blackberry/Other Phone users out there, this is what you can do should the same mishap strike you when you least expect it to.
2320HRS : Came home and tweeted
2330HRS : Put Blink in backpockets of sweatpants (as hands were busy)
2335HRS : Changed into a tee and shorts & left sweatpants on the bed
2338HRS : Did my laundry at the airwell
: Came back to my room & saw a few pieces of unwashed clothes (including the sweatpants which I changed out of)
2355HRS: Picked up the offending pieces and absent-mindedly included the sweatpants into the bundle
2359HRS: Walked back to the airwell and threw in the extra bundle (with Blinkberry
inside FML!) into already running washing machine
0001HRS : Made Ribena and conveniently drank it at the balcony
: Wanted to reply the boyfriend’s previous SMS
0005HRS : Walked back into the room and searched for Blink to no avail
0008HRS : Opened handbag searching for Blink in vain
0010HRS : Frantically ransacked Crumpler camera bag
0012HRS : Looked at the ceiling deep in thoughts as to when was the last place I put it
: Face froze and jaw dropped in horror
: Looked towards the bed to see no sweatpants on the bed
0015HRS : RAN TO THE AIRWELL TO HEAR BANGING AND WHIRRING SOUNDS FROM THE INSIDES OF THE WASHING MACHINE
: STOPPED THE WASHING MACHINE
: RUMMAGED THROUGH THE SOAKING WET LAUNDRY
: GOT MYSELF AND THE FLOOR TILES ALL WET
0016HRS : RESCUED THE ALREADY “ELECTROCUTED” AND LCD LIGHT-FADING BLINKBERRY
0017HRS : Cried (Yes in a state of panic, that comes first above all thankyouverymuch)
0030HRS: Cried some more and threw a helpless fit at mom and the boyfriend
0100HRS : Cried
Okay. But these are the essential things I did (other than crying) which you guys ought to know 🙂
- Dismantle your Blackberry
3. Wipe everything dry with a cloth/mini towel
6. Put it standing vertical on it’s head overnight
(so all the water can flow out in 1 direction)
7. For the next few days, leave it directly under strong air-conditioning blowing into it’s head (there’s a hole there so let the cold air enter through it)
8. Cry and curse/swear if it doesn’t work when you switch it on | optional
YOUR BLACKBERRY WILL BE REVIVED AGAIN! 🙂
And yes, there’s no need for alcohol, rice grains, flour, silica gel and or whatever unnecessary bullcrap if you live in a undomesticated urban environment like mine sans those raw material.
Ohyes possies, now THAT’S another reason to love your Blackberry. Cheers!
So quickly get one and do the BBM Dance with me, you! 🙂
