grrr!

Intermittant Internet

Comcast is pulling some sort of crap shoot, so our Internet access will be spotty at best until… when, not sure when. It’s been going on and off for at least two weeks now. Going down for hours, coming up for ten minutes, going down fifteen minutes later for hours again. Router is fine, new modem, everything, and no luck. A tech’s coming out on Sunday to take a look a things, but who knows? For two people who do most of their work from home, this is not a good thing at all, and we’re switching companies soon. So if you don’t see me around, that’s why.

*grumble*

Grrr. I was awakened by Lucy peeing on me this morning. Wonderful. NOT. My entire side of the bed is soaked now, cause Adam had to douse it with Nature’s Miracle. Thank goodness we have a guest room and an extra bed.

But you know how it is. Who wants to be uprooted from their bed at freaking 4am by a cat who walks right past a litter box so she can pee on your head?

So now I’m going to do a survey to try to stop being so damned pissed off.

Cynical

This month, I will have another birthday. I’ve been getting loads of mailings from places. They’re in nice, brightly colored envelopes. Some of them even look like cards! And they usually have printed on the outside:

A Birthday Gift For You!

I open it, to find a coupon for $5 off a $20 purchase, or $10 off a $75 purchase!

What the ever-lovin’ hell?

Call me bitchy, but those are not gifts, those are coupons. A gift is $5 toward merchandise worth $5 or less. A gift is an ornament or a gift card for a pair of socks. A coupon for something I wasn’t going to spend money on anyway is NOT a gift, it’s a ploy to get me in the store to spend more than I ever wanted or planned, or a way for me to *think* the company is wishing me well when all it’s doing is trying to make more money.

They can keep those birthday wishes. And stop killing the trees they’re printing those “gifts” on while they’re at it.

* In case you can’t tell, I am in a BAD mood. >:( And as predicted, my sore throat is back, full force. I’ve given up on getting better, of ever being okay, on everything.

Horoscope

Your need for fairness is strong now and that could mean that you’re all fired up — or that you’re ready to bring the heightened tensions down a few notches. One way or another, things will go your way.

Yes. Let’s just say that I’m pissed off and fed up and someone other than me is going to pay for it, for once.
