Got internet and basic cable up at the house.

Only they gave us full on cable access by mistake.

Also I love brand new computers! What games are you installing? Does this mean you're now able to play all the new and exciting stuff your old computer couldn't? At the next steam sale I'll send you some suggestions...


So far I have installed WoW and Sims3. And yes, this computer is way more capable than my laptop so feel free to send awesome game suggestions my way! Its also using my TV as a monitor. I am quite pleased with the setup.

See, there's a very big part of me that's all "report it please"
Then there's a smaller that wants to go nuts.
Then there's the rational side that worries about the company trying to charge us once they figure it out.

Well, then, I'd recommend calling your cable company if for no other reason than your own peace of mind.

I do so love tax return season. We got a nice big return coming our way in a few weeks. Money isn't everything, but it sure is nice sometimes. And my student loan will be getting paid off! Woohoo!

I prefer owing a little money to Uncle Sugar to giving him an interest-free loan, but maybe that's just me. He gets all persnickety about penalties if you owe too much. At least he's not making us pay quarterly at the moment - a plus for being salaried, I guess.

When we signed up with our fiber optic internet/TV/Phone service, they gave us a free month of a couple of the premium channel line-ups to "try them out." I presume that was so we'd want to add them to our subscription. You might be seeing the full line-up in a similar "try it, you'll like it" temporary mode. There may be something about it in the flurry of paper they probably left with you.

Or they screwed up, but they always seem to figure it out when it comes time to bill you.

'soft open'* at the pub tonight. Went really well, staff awesome. Feedback excellent. Spotted a bunch of things I need to fix tomorrow, all fixable. Tomorrow will be completely different though & I'm totally terrified. This place is such a massive job for me ... I've got 23 staff, mostly inexperienced ... I've become accustomed to teams of five or six before now. Bonus: I get to sleep in until 10am. I've been up & out at 6am everyday lately to make sure things are reet.

* friends, family, locals promised free food etc ...
