The day and time which shall live in infamy, as that is the time my cable FINALLY came back on. Not without some further hassles with Cox, to be sure, including some incredible rudeness from the line tech which may have to be reported, but IT'S BACK. And just in time. I was really about to lose my frickin' mind. With the lack of cable aided and abetted by a little too much Sudafed last week, by Friday evening I was a jittery, nervous, restless, sobbing MESS. ( could never be a cocaine addict or speed freak. Give me Valium or Xanax any day.)
I had a little gathering to attend at some friends' house Saturday evening, just after the cable came back, and it was oh, so tempting to blow it off and stay at home to watch TV, but I didn't. I wasn't that far gone. And the gathering was nice...low-key and informal, with lots of music being made, cheese being eaten, beer being drunk. And I got to spend a lot of time with their 7 ("And a half!")-year-old daughter. I hadn't seen her in a while, and she was pretty much my shadow all evening. Plus they have a new golden retriever puppy, and what's cuter than that? It was worth the delayed cable gratification.
I have no big plans for this evening. I'm just hoping 2007 slips away smoothly and painlessly, and 2008 is even better.
Happy New Year, all!
