I GOT BROADBAND!

Just had broadband installed.  The guy had a hard time finding the house because the workorder indicated that I lived in a houseboat.  In Colorado?  Not unless this is the Ark, which could be possible considering the number of animals here, but no... this is no houseboat.  So, in preparation for the installation I had to move all the junk from the computer room into my son's bedroom.  Found all kinds of neat stuff that I had forgotten about, for instance I found a futon under the huge mountain of unfolded laundry, and there was a Coca Cola table in the corner behind a wall of boxes and bags.  And.... I kid you not... I almost thanked the guy for installing a new wall outlet by the window only to realize later that the outlet had been there since we had moved in 5 years ago, it had just been hidden behind the curtains the previous owners had left and we had never gotten around to changing.  All this time I had thought we had only one outlet in the room and we had all kinds of extention cords and surge protectors running out of it.  Any how, I was proud of the quick clean up job I had done and was feeling good about it until the guy was ready to leave and had to fill in the time of completion.  Of all the clocks and time pieces I have in this room, not a single one was telling the correct time.  One is still on daylight savings time, one is telling Austrailian time... I think, the kids had taken the batteries out of the Coca Cola Bear clock for their gameboy, and while the hour glass sand was working, its not very precise.  And then, of the million pens and pencils I had picked up off the floor and deposited nicely in the pen and pencil caddy... not a single one worked!  But I think I fooled him into thinking I was a neat and organized homeowner, what do you think?

I just read your very first post. I loved it. Reminded me of when I recently got broadband. The guy had to go downstairs in our basement, and it was flooded. We didn't know a thing about it. It smelled so bad, i'm glad I didn't have to stay down there as long as he did. Now I feel like going around J-Land and reading other people's first post. Starting with Rebecca.
