Cuteness Matters

It's rainy and dark in the holler this morning, we saw the sun for about a day and a half before it went back into hiding. The ground is so saturated that if I didn't have 4WD, I'd never get out of the yard in the morning.

No, we don't really have a driveway, exactly, just a patch of yard where there's no grass. Down here, that is a driveway. Don't judge me.

I got so excited last night, I thought T.A. was going to have to medicate me and lock me in a closet when she told me someone is actually coming to our house this afternoon to see about fixing our sewer line. I'm a little ashamed at my absolute fecking glee that I may soon be able to flush without fear, to shower without intricate schedules and ... sweet baby You Know Who... to use my washing machine.

On a side note, I'd just like to say God Bless Febreeze and it's magical powers.

The other day, T.A. finally received the new laptop she received from Dell. The child was driving me insane with her stalking of the Fed-Ex guy, leaving long, detailed notes with intricate instructions for him should he try to deliver said laptop while she was at work and standing on the double yellow line, staring longingly up the road, awaiting his arrival.

It's a damn shame she can't get on the internet with it.

Apparently the wireless card won't work with our Westell router/modem doohickey, provided to us by Verizon. It would work with most of the ones supplied by Verizon, but according to the innerwebs (it has to be true if it's on the innerwebs) we have one of the early models (series A90) that was made in China. There's a security option you have to change for it to work with the new wireless cards that isn't even ON the model we have.

Because the account is in Ma's name, she had to call to try to get it changed, but couldn't get through to Verizon support at all, so I pitched a bitch and moan started asking around on Twitter. Within minutes I was approached by Verizon support on Twitter.

Great right?

I tried in vain to explain the problem in 140 characters or less, but the person on the other end of the conversation just kept posting links to stuff he'd Googled.

Thanks, but I already spent the entirety of last weekend doing that all by myself.

Bless his heart.

I'm probably going to end up having to buy a new modem/router doohickey from Best Buy or somewhere, as soon as I can figure out what exactly I need.

Ain't technology grand?

I've got a new ittle bitty netbook on order too, just because I got such a killer deal on it. A backup isn't a bad idea anyway, my desktop is getting some years on it. And? They're so itty bitty.. and cute.

Ah well. It's noggin doc day so I'm off at 3 to go get my head shrunk. I'll let ya'll know how that goes. In the meantime, ya'll have a good one.

We'll talk again soon.

Later Taters!

There is no suck like the suck of no internets, when you KNOW it's there for the taking.

Good luck to y'all!

We bought a Linksys modem from Best Buy. They can tell you what you need - best of all, it was under $50!
