Things & Stuff
Out Of The Loop

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers (anyone outside the US reading my drivel? Drop me a note!).
Came home last night to find that my cable and my internet connection were both off. Since I go through Time-Warner, both are provided by the same company.
Now, I KNOW I'd paid that bill. So that wasn't the problem. I called the 800 number and found that it wasn't just me - it was all of Anaheim and "most of the Inland Empire". So I had some dinner and watched a couple episodes of Buffy. Time-Warner didn't have things fixed by the time I went to bed.
I was awakened by a call from my boss, just making sure that everything for work today was taken care of (which of course it was). Everything was still down. I got up, got a soda...and the TV was back on but the cable was down. I called T-W again, and found that the problem had been caused by a car accident. That made sense - it had been drizzling last night, and someone must've crashed into a trunk cable somewhere.
So I tuned into Bravo to watch the end of this classic. After about ten minutes of that, the internet connection got re-instated. So I got to work on my usual internet stuff, including the post.
Now I need to get going - I have a drive to San Diego to my family get-together, and I'm sure they would appreciate it if I showered first. And I promised Solange some turkey, and I shudder to think what will happen if I break that promise.
Before I do that, though - I must sent out a loud, Micky Dolenz-style "don't DO that" to Brin for managing to clean her fingerprints - the HARD way.
Brin...don't DO that!
Okay. Don't overdo it, gang. Save room for comfort.
At least I'm feeling better than I did last year.
Be seeing you.
