i have this sick addiction to instant messenger. i haven't had it for two weeks, and i'm going crazy. i don't know why i need it so badly, i guess i am just lonely and i want to have more contact with people... even if it is just reading their away messages. wow that sounds pathetic! but it's true.
i'm supposed to get my internet on july 15th, and already i have had horrible problems with sbc. i was checking on my order status online yesterday, and they had all of my information wrong! my last name was spelled wrong, palatine was spelled wrong, my shipping address was missing my apartment number, it said i had ordered dsl pro (which is $10 more a month) when i had actually ordered regular dsl, it said that it was to be installed by the technician (when i had requested self-installation), and they apparently had not yet shipped my dsl modem package. so i was really pissed. i called them after work yesterday, and she read me the information she had on her computer, and it was all correct. weird, huh? i guess they have to re-enter the information on the computer for the customers to be able to see their account online, and the people who do that apparently suck. i guess everything is okay now, and i am supposed to receive my dsl stuff today but it won't work until friday. so i have two more days without reading "i am currently away from my computer".
i hope i can last
well, it's moving day. i've never moved before, except into and out of the dorms, which doesn't really count. i am extremely excited about moving, and i am glad i have so many great friends who are willing to help me. my apartment is on the third floor, and there is no elevator, but hopefully it won't be that bad.
right now i am at work, and out system is down again so i have nothing to do! i took an hour nap at my desk from 9-10, which was awesome. i don't go to lunch til 1 though, so i still have some time to kill. kmart has a futon for 150, including mattress, so i am going to buy that. i am going to get a matching coffee table too. besides that, i think i have everything i need for my apartment.
i broke down and got a phone line so i could have dsl internet. it's only 13 a month, and dsl is 15, so that's not bad. i'm getting basic cable for 8 a month. there are no cable channels in basic "cable", but all i really watch is fox so i don't mind.
monday will be my first paid holiday EVER and i am thrilled about that. even though i have to work the next morning and therefore i need to be drunk on the 4th by 10am...
well, it's back to spider solitaire i go.
