I'm back...

song du jour: Huong Vietnam, My Phuong Nguyen & Thierry David

mood: head over heels, etc.

After a week of battling it out with Comcast, I finally have what appears to be a stable internet connection for the first time since Monday afternoon of last week. When I said it was them, they said it was just me, and I'd have to wait for a technician to come out, and when I said it was me, they said it was them, and canceled my tech appointments. In the end it was their outage plus water in the connection where their line meets my house, and I had to go out in the rain, chivalrously attacking the wisteria in the way after begging the technician to at least look at the connection before writing it off to someone else because it was outside. You don't want to work outside, and you became a cable technician because...?

Fortunately, I was able to keep Cookie Monster, the techie, distracted when he couldn't surf ;-) and Skyler had a blow out weekend with Gran.

It was TORTURE!!!

... but somehow the lack of fullness from being connected with the outside world was softened by...well...you know... desserts. ;-)
