A Case of the Friday Mondays…

Danny is in London until Monday afternoon, so of course our internet breaks at home. I don’t know networking stuff, but it seems the wireless router is dying. The wireless works, but nothing plugged in does (including our phone service.) Here is what I have figured out:


Cable modem is where the magical intarwebs comes from. Power-cycling it alone does nothing. Connected to it is a wireless router. The wireless is working. There are two cables coming from that - one to a switch where lots of stuff is plugged in (my desktop, the line up to the DVR and Xbox, etc…) and one to our VoIP thinger (technical term). Neither of those things work. If I power-cycle the wireless router, they start to work again (dial tone!), but only for anywhere from 30 seconds to a half hour. Then the switch and VoIP loose connection again. Ugh. I’m guessing there is some setup involved in a new router (not just plug & play), so I am SOL till Danny gets home. I have to cancel my Rock Band “date” tonight since I can’t log in to Xbox Live. It will be a boring, lonely weekend.

This morning the Starbucks was super, super busy. Go to work, people! 10 am is *my* time to enjoy breakfast and I can’t go inside to eat like you can, as I have a dog with me. There were no free tables, and I had to park 4 stores away (only annoying cause Benny waits in the car while I go in.) Thankfully, a friendly, chatty guy I see there every Friday had a table and I was able to join him. Benny was acting weird. Someone had gotten butter all over the ground (what??) and he licked it up then really, really had to poop. He was too uncomfortable to even sit. Dumbass. So breakfast ended so I could walk him.

I am still trying to decide if I should start putting my new extensions in this weekend. There are 2 weeks until we go to Cabo, and 3 weeks until the wedding. I just really want them to look nice for as long as possible, but I’ve never used this type of hair before. It is expensive and difficult to get, so I don’t want to screw it up before the wedding. I’m a little worried about all the pool and ocean water it will be in during Cabo, but oh well. I can always wear my hair in a bun if it looks crappy by then, I guess. I need to figure out how to wear it at night (since more will be loose) and how often I should let it get wet in the shower (I’d prefer to wash my scalp every day.)

I have no idea if I have Monday off, and there is no one here to ask. Hrm.
