Internet . . . I have missed you!

So I finally have internet again. It was quite the ordeal. Here is what I had to go through to get it.

1. I had to call and order it. This was much more difficult than you would think. The entire time I was on the phone, I had cats running in and out of blinds, making lots of noise. The girl kept saying my connection was bad because she couldn't hear me over them. I know it wasn't really my connection, because she heard me fine after I shoed away the cats finally.

2. I had to go to the Cox store to pick up the modem. There was only one other customer in the store and there were four employees, but the guy yelled at me and told me I had to get a number. It went like this: "You have to get a number, miss" I sheepishly pull out number 38. "Number 38 please!"

3. I installed everything myself. This wasn't too bad. Actually the easiest part. But then the internet just wouldn't work. I tried everything I could think of, but nothing.

4. I had to call technical assistance. I tried this Wednesday, but there was a really long wait time, so I decided to worry about it today. When I tried to call today, I could not get phone reception in my room. I tried to call several times and got disconnected. Then I moved it all out to the living room where my reception is better. I called, and the guy told me to unplug and replug in the modem. This is something I had tried several times, but I decided to do it anyway to humor him. And it worked! Right after that I could get to any website. I was starting to feel silly, thinking it would have worked all along, but for some reason I just couldn't get it to. Then he said the modem wasn't registered in my name, so he did that before he had me unplug it to reset it. So it wasn't something I could have done anyway.

5. Play on the internet. Since I haven't had internet at home for a while, I had to play. I had no choice.

All debts to be settled this weekend, so new ones can be established. (Poker night!)

Okay, I bought a ticket, so I'm totally coming! If anyone needs me to bring anything, let me know. I'm bringing HoHo for Shannon, and hopefully also all of your new clothes. (We can be matchy-matchy if we want! Which, of course, we do!) Anyway, we'll see you all on Saturday! Yay!

Sistership over!

Not one of you purchased a suit!

But you do all owe me money, except Emily, who can't be held responsible for me making purchases on her behalf... although one could construe telling me her size constitutes implicit permission to make purchases...

Anyway. Your debts are on the "You Owe Me" board. I've adjusted the price so that we all pay a proportionate share of the total shipping prices (according to the total of your purchase).

Layers just moved a bunch of stuff into clerance. There's pretty much no choice in color or sizes, but still. I might buy something, if any of you want, we could maybe bundle shipping... I'm not sure exactly how that would work, since I'm in Utah, but if I end up coming down there anytime soon.

Okay, whatever.

Happy Jericho Day!

And God said, "Let there be Jericho"; and there was Jericho. And God saw that the Jericho was good; and God separated the Jericho from the Crappy TV Shows.

Hawaii Trip

Okay, I know you all check in here. So here is the thinking. Holly thinks that it would work better for her if we went December 29th and came back January 2nd or 3rd. We would take a late night flight coming home. The other possibility would be January 5th and come back on the 9th. The only problem with the first dates is that a lot of things may be closed on the 1st and so we would not have much to do that day. I am thinking that this is not the year to try to include Crystal and she might like to go when Michael does and with Valani it may be better to wait a little bit longer for her. So What do you all think. We will need to get two hotel rooms at around $120 a night. I could cover one room but two may be stretching my budget a little. So let me know what you all are thinking and please be serious about this.

Richard's job status

So poor Richard went in to do his paperwork and the manager had gone home sick. Richard went back today and before they would hire him he had to make another stop at Sonora Quest Labs. Ask him what he had to do with the cup they gave him. He doesn't know when his first work shift will be.

Richard got a job!

So Richard is feeling like mush today. I made him stop to see if there was anything he could do to process his job application quicker and the manager just came back from lunch. She interviewed him on the spot and he starts Thursday.
