Living Off-Line

Having limited internet time combined with dial-up has curtailed on-line living for now. Other than checking e-mail and skimming through Facebook posts a couple times a day, I just haven't been doing much on the internet. Which, as you have probably noticed, includes posting here. We have a fairly predictable routine going: get up in the morning, head down to the basement, come up around 1 or 2pm for lunch, head back down until 6 or 7pm, dinner, veg in front of the idiot box, bed. Rinse and repeat. Progress in the basement is slow but steady. One of the large areas is ready for primer and paint, and I expect the second large area to be the same by this weekend. We'll likely finish those two areas completely before starting on the final two small rooms.

Attempts to get DSL have hit a snag. Namely, Megapath simply refuses to send a contract. I love companies that waste my time. As it turns out, it may be a good thing. Nothing definite yet, but it looks like my updated prediction was almost spot on. We just finished hauling everything into the basement and... well... lets just say that fingers are crossed. Toes are crossed. Legs are crossed. Of course that last one probably has more to do with the 2-litre of Diet Coke I just polished off.

Anyway, that's it for now. Maybe after this week, I can get back to a sort-of normal internet routine. But for now, bed time.
