Time Warner Cable is making our lives miserable right now! Awards too!

July 14, 2010

Last week I noticed that we were having trouble with our internet connection. It would just "go off" all of a sudden. I would have to go unplug the modem and router and wait a couple of minutes like forever, just sayin'!! and then plug it back in. That seemed to work.

On Monday Don noticed that our DVR/cable box wasn't working right. Our guide wouldn't come up. And the DVR clock was stuck on 12:00. Do you know what happens when it's stuck on 12:00? Not a damn thing. You can't schedule any reminders, you can't record anything. NOTHING. How can you schedule something at 8 pm when it's 12:00 all day long? YOU CAN'T!!!

He spent about an hour on the phone with TWC. (After getting disconnected once) Apparently they're switching over to fiber optics and a lot of people here (in our town) are having problems with their cable. So many people that the earliest date they can get here to work on it is the 23rd. Are you fuckin' kidding me? That's 13 days (from the date that it broke)  people. 13 days with no DVR. Hell we can't even see what's on.

While he was on the phone with them I was in the middle of updating my Ipod Touch. The I lost the internet connection AGAIN. Do you know what happens when you lose your internet connection while updating your Ipod? It kills it. I had to do restore my Ipod back to the day I bought it. I lost everything. I lost my music. I lost all of my games. (I had a lot!) I was pissed. I was cussing.

Thank God that Itunes saves most of your stuff.  I did lose quite a few of my games and some of my music but I can live with that. I was scared that my Ipod was ruined!!

I was so tired yesterday (I'd been up all night the night before, I've been up all night last night as well!) that I was doing silly shit lol. I cut a piece of cake and was cleaning up my mess. I picked up the cake plate, opened the cabinet door and went to put the cake...in the cabinet! Lol...I don't think I need to being anything that takes serious concentration today!

I was looking at all the swimsuits on VS because they're having a HUGE sale on them. I saw this...

Call me crazy, but there's not a lot of places you can wear this. And who would want that damn tan line anyway? Now, I'm not that dumb people. I do realize that it can be worn like this...

But still...that tan line?? But hell, if I had a body like that, maybe I would wear it??

So I have exciting news! Since I couldn't sleep and I was bored I decided to make up my own award. It's called the Naughty Or Nice Award.

The rules are going to be fairly simple. All you have to do is answer the 10 questions. And pick 10 people (or if you're feeling "Naughty" you can just do 5, or none at all) to pass it along to, then let them know that you've given it to them! Since this is my first time giving the award out I'm going to answer the questions myself!

1. What is the silliest prank you ever played on someone?
While walking into my Sister's house one day my Godchild hid behind the door and scared the ever living shit out of me. She left not long after that to go pick up a couple of her friends. While she was gone, I went into her room and duct taped her (wireless) mouse to the bottom of her chair. It took her a week to find it. Kudos to my sister for not telling her where it was!

2. If you could take a trip anywhere out of the country where would you go? Why?
Ireland. I want to kiss the Blarney Stone.

3. Who plays the most influential role in your life?
My son. I forgot to mention in the above entry that Rusty took a test, to get his CDL permit (he's trying to get a promotion at work) twice last week. The first time he only passed one section (out of three) of the test. He went back the next day and passed two, still failed one though. He went Monday and he did it! He got his CDL permit. He has to drive with someone who already has their CDL for three months and then he'll be able to take the test for the actual license. Once he gets the license he'll be able to go on "offshore" jobs. He wont actually be working offshore on oil rigs, he'll be working on land jobs! He's really excited about getting out of the shop. It means a huge pay raise for him. It also means that he'll be eligible for the bonuses like my ex gets. (The last time my ex got a bonus it was $20,000)! I'm so proud of him. That kid has some determination!! He could have given up after failing the test twice!

4. Are you ok with your significant other being friends with an ex?
Sure, his ex is awesome. She's really coo, she's "good people!" Hell, I'd hang out with her even if hubby wasn't there!

5. Favorite candle scent?
I  like sandalwood and vanilla (not to girly for hubby). I also like creme brulee. Damn things make your house smell like your baking a cake!! So yummy.

6. Next movie you're excited about seeing?
The Expendables! I love action movies. Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Forrest Whitaker, Jet Li, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, Randy Couture,  Dolph Lundgren, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. You can't ask for more in an action flick!

7. You must ban one word from the dictionary and all usage, to be no longer uttered or written. What word do you ban?
Like. I mean...Like, don't you just like hate it like when like every like other like word like is like? Just sayin'!

8. Do you have any relatives in jail?
Not anymore! Haha! Seriously, I had a cousin who was in prison for about 15 years for drugs. He was released a few years ago, and he's doing great. He was VERY young when he was arrested. Scary!

9. What crazy fads were popular when you were a teenager?
Neon clothing.

Lacey clothing (think Madonna).  

 and big shoulder pads....

10. Have you ever been mentioned in a newspaper or on TV? 
Yes. About my little sister's death. That's another blog entry for a later date.

 Now for the 10 people I'd like to give it to first....
My BBM ladies. I realize that most of you don't "do" awards, so you don't have to participate...but it'd be fun if you would. (Not to mention...it's the only way to pass on the award lol!)

Dreamweaver (K...I totally forgot about the Do Good Day post until I read it on BBM a little while ago! I'll be sure to post something tomorrow with my SAS post.)
