Roadkill

Life Sucks (Today, Anyway...)

Today was thoroughly miserable. All sorts of problems with the network and our internet connection that turned out to be the last gasps of our router/firewall before it died. To top it off, our European distributor sent Label Woman a stuffed marmot that yodels when you press it's belly. I didn't like it the first time I heard it, but they kept pushing the damn thing's belly all frelling day! Somehow, I managed not to kill anybody, but if I catch that marmot alone, it's going right into the dumpster. Or maybe into the bay in a weighted sack. You can't be too careful...

So now all the work I needed to get done today is in my laptop case so I can work on it on Saturday. Joy!

In other suckalicious news, my cough seems to be making a comeback, causing me to skip volleyball last night. Really getting tired of this. Back to the doctor's, I think. And on top of everything else, Cox dropped channel 56 from it's line up for no apparent reason, so I can't watch the WB in real time anymore. Channel 28 will be showing Angel at 10 pm on Friday nights. No more watch & posts. Bummer!

There is some good news. I made some excellent beef stew for dinner, and there's a couple of meals worth of leftovers. There was a new episode of Farscape, which I enjoyed immensely. Am going out to dinner with volleyball friends tomorrow night, which should be fun. Also, got the news a couple of days ago that my sister Laura is a step-grandmother again, this time step-daughter had twins. BIL is totally ecstatic. Finally, my replacement DVD of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World was waiting on the stoop for me when I got home tonight (the original was defective). Yay! Just don't know when I'm going to be able to watch it.
