What are you doing?

I'm vaguely watching "First Blood" and trying to figure out a skirt pattern.

I'm looking at facebook waiting for my friend, a Kiowa Warrior pilot, to respond to me that he survived an attack that another friend just informed me happened on his unit....

I can't post pics with my blackberry. The wires are to short on the dongle or I would pull them out and reattach them to the tip. It just hangs there now useless!

Sitting here pissed off at Charter. Just got off the phone with those boobs, being transferred from one to another. Didn't have my custsomer number, and they kept insisting on it (#3 that I conversed with).

Their ace installers came out and totally botched a previously botched job. They do not know how to fish a wall. They left a big hole in the wall and put the wall plate on crooked. They said they'd do 2 for $35 install charge (which I had contended that I shouldn't pay as it was to repair previous damage).

They said that the guy working on my kitchen could repair the hole in the wall. They were very unprofessional, but what else, they're Charter employees. :mad::rolleyes:

I poked a needle nosed plyer into the hole on the end and grabbed hold of the wires but there is not enough slack, I don't want to pull them out by the roots. That would be a mess!

They have the seam glued. I'll take it to verizon tomorrow and they will replace it. I insured it because they cost 200.00.

I am laying in bed, propped up on two pillows looking raggedly hot for a grouchy old broad at the end of a long day. Two dogs drapped around me. Watching Discovery Channel, a show about the Bermuda triangle. Laptop on my lap, catching up on the days news via Intarwebs and trying to unwind my weary brain so it will let me sleep a few hours before I get up and do it all over again tomorrow. Thank goodness the weekend is almost here. That's what Kay is doing at 10:59 PM.

I'm going through my four favorite conservative forums, pondering next year when we have to decide whether to seed or sod the back yard.

I skipped the Drudge Report because I've had enough bad political news for a while, too.

I am back in business. After arguing with one store and having to go to another that had a higher up manager they gave me another dongle. It is funny how you pay the extra six bucks a month for insurance on a product and there are some assholes that want to argue with you about replacing it.

It's kind of snowing and I'm enjoying a frosty adult beverage. There will be no yard work tomorrow (sadly). The house is clean, the laundry is done, and the BFF and I have sorted out the political ramifications of Obamacare for the middle class.

I vaguely watching Stossel, wondering if I need to sign up for Cheryl Oberle's lace sampler class this summer, and contemplating making a cookie dough so it can chill overnight.

What are you up to this evening? ;)

I'm sick and waiting for another hour before I can take Tylenol Severe Cold again. Took another med last night and had a wild dream about a large UFO that looked like the Starship Enterprise. It landed over a large city and had infant's blood in bottles all along the side. It made some young twentysomething crazed while police officers gave her back to her mom. :eek:

Are you sorry you asked? ;)

It's either the old cold med or George Noory. :D

I'm hoping for a better night's sleep with the Tylenol.

Did the landing lights have a bluish hue?:confused:

No, they were regular lights. But the whole sky was lit up and I could see ocean and skyline. It was really an amazing picture and I wish I could draw because it was so vivid and fantastic.

It was probably just a dream if it didn't have bluish white light. They switched over a couple years ago because they take less energy and cause less interstellar accidents.

I just got prone in same position as last night. In bed, laptop, dogs everywhere.
Flipped the tv around for 20 minutes through 100+ channels and nothing caught
my eye. So browsing through YouTube listening to favorite oldies and catching up
on the day's news on my favorite sites.

Elspeth, try NyQuil instead.
