There’s nothing pressing on my mind I want to share at the moment. So here are some things I’ve been wondering about:
I just got off the phone with Rogers (my cable/internet/wireless provider). I was questioning something on my bill and when we were done the rep I was speaking with asked if I had a minute so he could go over my account and make sure I was getting the best deal possible.
