My life really is a series of mishaps. No, really. That's what defines me. A friend told me the other day that I'm a magnet for oddness. Not in those words (he's very polite and well-spoken, but he still doesn't have a blog), and I had to agree.
So since we last spoke, a series of blunders and pratfalls have transpired...and I'm just going to tell you about the latest. The one I'm in the middle of right now.
Okay, in my old apartment I had a cable modem for my internet connection so I scheduled the account be moved to the new place ASAP...which is now. So anyway, I arrived home from work about an hour before my appointment window (3 pm - 5 pm) and set up the computer.
Okay, in order to get the table in the new office space (which is really a closet with sliding doors), I had to take it apart and reassemble it on the other side. Easy. Yeah, right? Me and machines/tools don't like each other. They despise me, actually. So after that was done, I turned on the computer.
Arrggghhh!!! I think the power supply died.
Okay, now what do I do...comcast is on it's way...
Use the laptop. Yeah. That'll work. But the cord for it is in the garage...okay, run down and get it.
Comcast guy arrives. Cool. He's working on it. Cougar hisses at him. He says "big cat" and I apologize for the rude behavior (Cougar HATES everyone...even me, sometimes). So then the Comcast guy uses the restroom...returns to work. He's doing the wrong thing though, creating a new account for me rather than transferring the one I already have. Like I asked him. Sigh. Backup. Call headquarters. Try again.
He goes to get something and comes back and Cougar has snuck into the office and CRAPPED on the floor...and it's a HUGE, doberman-sized pile (I'm so proud of him). So I have to clean it up while the guy continues to work around the stink...I'm pissed at Cougar but when I go into the restroom, I realize I forgot to tell the Comcast guy to leave the seat up for the cats, so Cougar couldn't go and had to find an alternative spot (like Kramer on Seinfeld, he thinks it's dangerous to hold it in).
So now, I've got a temporary Internet connection setup and I have to take the computer in to get the power supply changed, or <shudder>, do it myself.
P.S. This was written offline and will only be posted once I've got my wireless connection going again...
