Although I'm super, super bouncy excited, there is something going on at home that is making me mad. Stupid Comcast. I called them a few days ago because the Hallmark channel - which I leave on for Abby and Jasper- was all pixelated. They told me I shouldn't even be getting HD channels and promptly canceled them. What. The. Heck? I'm told I can pay $10 extra a month for a service I was getting. I'm also told that I'm getting HBO and Cinemax - which I don't want because honestly I never watch them- free. I know I don't need HD - it was a nice to have- but it make me furious that they just decided to downgrade my service like that. This is what Verizon did. Unfortunately, I have a choice - Verizon or Comcast- if I want internet. I could say screw the entire thing and just go straight to no TV, internet only but I'm not sure about that yet. I'll wait until after Pennsic.
At work; it's sort of funny. The supervisor for our section is worried about me leaving because he's scared that nothing will get done now. (Pretty much all the reports in the queue are mine most of the time. That's not to say the other two guys aren't doing work; they tend to answer requests in email rather than write reports. I do the long term stuff while the 24 year old does a lot of the "watch what this new gadget can do!!!" and our small team supervisor makes sure we can actually even get our reports out at all.) Of course, with the move in the middle of all this, nothing will get done anyway (like the computers will even work at the new place for the first few days, ha!) so, to me, it's not like it's a big deal. However, it's nice to know I will be missed.
I still have sewing. I still have laundry. I still have chores that need to be done. I'm going in for 2 hours tomorrow and then I'm hooking up the trailer, getting air in the tires, and doing the load/unload/wash everything/reload thing for the rest of the day.
My reddit exchange secret santas were AWESOME this time around. First, from the oldschoolcool Santa:
My new feather headdress.
My new 1920's necklace.
And then, from my Arbitrary Day Santa:
My new everything radio and Arwen LOTR necklace. The everything radio actually works well! It has a flashlight, hand crack, solar power charger, USB, and, yes, a radio. And a siren. Still haven't quite figured out a good use for that other than terrifying the cat....and myself. Because the button is also the on/off switch for the radio so....yeah.
Will post tomorrow in super hyper OMG!PENNSIC! mode. :-)
