I’m abandoning my computer desk assembly. I was feeling too dumb to understand the complicated instructions, and then realized I have no screwdriver! I feel like I packed a silly little one, but I don’t recall unpacking it and have no idea where it would be. The flathead one on my bike tool won’t cut it.
I signed up for satellite TV online last week but it had a one-week wait for installation. Then they called yesterday to say the online system isn’t working right (though they somehow had all my info) and scheduled for yet another week out. I’m still amazed that every customer service person I talk to IS ACTUALLY IN IRELAND (or else their foreign call center counterparts have mastered the accent): the bank, the TV people, the electric company. Today I was excited to receive a temporary login to watch the TV channels online for a month. But: it didn’t work, and the site is having technical problems. Sigh.
Living room 2, the other way. This gas fireplace howls with the wind. At some point I will have the new TV, computer desk, and various other comfort items set up in here but at the moment it’s a wreck
The style of the house, with bright natural light (even on gray days), neutral colors, and white trim is exactly what I would pick for myself, so the relocation people did a great job considering I had never been here when it was picked for me. It’s pretty new and seems energy efficient, an improvement over our uninsulated 90-year-old house at home! There is a nice yard and patio in the back and lots of landscaping that I don’t have to maintain, which is brilliant or perfect if you go by the slang here. Grand, fair play, lads.
Today I saw yet another person walking in the road with a stick, but it wasn’t long enough to be a walking stick. I asked my coworkers and they hadn’t noticed all the stick-carrying pedestrians before. I need more data.
