Day 158. Great Expectations

I had no internet service Wednesday night. Not sure exactly when it went out. I started trying at 7:30. It was after midnight when it came back. It’s annoying and servicefrustrating to be sure. But it happens and probably can’t be helped (I can just feel my nose growing. We all know I’m not this nice). What pissed me off beyond the beyond, though, was the unforgivably bad customer service.

Tried calling. Could I get through?

Can pigs fly? For the first couple of hours I didn’t even hear that ‘connecting’ sound. Right after I dialled the number I got a recording: “The circuits are busy. Try again.”

Why I even bothered, I cannot say.

Bullheadedness, I guess. Obviously I’m a glutton for punishment. And clearly I’m the type of person who might press on a bruise, because I’m enough of a sicko to think it feels good. If this is true, I’ll bet I’d have a lot more fun with Christian Grey than I have dealing with Rogers.

Anyway, about three hours in I was finally connected to their IVR system. Oh, how I love those. Even on a good day.

Well, this won’t surprise you. It was screwed up. Wouldn’t recognize my telephone number (which had to be programmed in

Day 100. Interpreting Dreams

Ever curious, I found myself trolling through the Internet very early this morning. How I ended up at a website that explains what’s in your dreams, I’m not exactly sure.

But I did. And the next thing I knew, I was looking to see what it means when you see the letter “N” in your dreams. I was shocked to find as many “N”-words that mean something, as I did.

Here are just a few. If you’re curious, like I am, just click on the

Day 53. More Grey

Well, you’re partly right. I did spend some time last night in Seattle. Figuratively speaking, that is. Now you really don’t know what I’m talking about, do you? Or do you?

Come on, ‘fess up. You’re not alone. There’s more than forty million of us.

Grey is no longer just a colour. Probably never will be again. Not since those books took the world by storm. And I don’t mean, just the women folk, either. There may not be a lot of men reading them, but trust me, a whole lot of them are the beneficiaries of their wives and girlfriends reading them. That’s all I’m saying. You figure it out.

So back to last night. My Thursday evening may have taken me to Seattle, but Christian Grey was nowhere in sight. I am not talking about the Fifty Shades of Grey books. Gotcha!

Last night was the season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy.

It is definitely one of my weaknesses. I should probably be embarrassed to admit this, but I have been known to refuse invitations to go out on Thursday nights, because Grey’s is on. Please try to not hold it against me. We all need to relax and give our brains a rest, from
