Spilled the beans

I have a number of things to keep track of in the next week or so.

Tomorrow Eldon is coming by to install my new CD Rom drive so I can finally get that problem behind me. The CDR/W still works for software and music and is great to have as a backup in a situation like this, but it's all I have left standing before a total frustration meltdown.

I'm really looking forward to visiting my middle school art teacher again. I did so many fun things in that class that it didn't feel like school. Some days it was the only thing that kept me going. I saw him just before the Madrigal Dinner at the high school last December and he said I should drop by sometime. I've been thinking about it ever since but the best opportunity hasn't arisen yet. I saw him again the last time I was at the grocery store and we agreed that I should drop by sometime this week which leaves Thursday or Friday. Now I have to find the address again and hunt down his phone number.

I called the cable company today and made an appointment to be hooked up and installed. The house already has coaxial cable into three rooms but Elvira's only has a phone jack (which was her reason for claiming it.) I'm not really annoyed but I thought it odd that the next two available days to get a tech out were tomorrow and the following Wednesday. I might have had them come tomorrow morning and asked Eldon to reschedule for another day, but then I wouldn't be able to watch anime until then.

Whups. During a break from writing this to talk to someone I spilled milk all over my desk here. I grabbed a towel from the next room and got the worst of it, but I'd better wash stuff down so it doesn't start to smell. So much for this entry.

    I currently ache in about half a dozen places right now. It would be far too cliché to say "I'm getting old" (not to mention that I quite dislike…

    So it looks like nobody I've been friends with since 2009 has been using LJ recently, which is kindof sad. Not that I've been part of the solution…
