Is there something up with Facebook? My enter button doesn't seem to be working. Also, the comment fields are acting funny. Or maybe it's my technofield.

This week our microwave broke. OMG the sparks! That part was actually kind of cool, except it was a bit scary. I love that microwave. It's a tiny little red thing called a Half Pint. Not a powerful microwave, but it's adorable. We put an apple sticker on it. We've had it for about ten years. So Mom has offered me her old microwave until we can order a new one that's almost as cute as the discontinued Half Pint series. So far we haven't found anything nearly as cute.

Our TV is spotty. It stared with one spot in the middle. Monkeys did some research to discover our brand of Samsung has a defect on the motherboard blah blah blah once you get one you will soon get more blah blah blah out of warranty blah blah blah class action lawsuit blah blah. We are up to 17 spots now. This sounds a bit weird, but I kind of like them. I feel like I'm watching tv with Orion and several of my other favorite constellations. I feel bad for other people watching our tv, however. To buy a new one it will be about $700 or so, which we can't really do right now.

Today at work our network kept going down! So it's been technical issues all around. Very frustrating. What is more frustrating (but also amusing in a "can you believe people" kind of way) was the student lecturing me about getting her electronic transient student request. If the internet and mail server are going up and down all day, that affects if and how we get our email. I never received the FACTS email saying there was a pending request. Also, if our internet connection is down, there is nothing I can do to access a transient form delivered by the internet. Not to mention the fact that even if we did have internet access there is nothing that says K, me, the Registrar, and the VP should immediately stop everything else we are working on to move her request ahead of everyone else. There is no academic equivalent to the Disney Fast Pass. (Really and truly, we do process those things super quickly when the system is functioning properly. I've always been impressed with how prompt and capable our office can be. But when people demand, argue, or expect special treatment instead of being grateful ... grrrr.)

I had issues with Facebook last night -- every time I went to send something no user pictures appeared. I was afraid I had broken the internet for a while :)

Sorry to hear about the microwave...the sparks sounded scary...

I often worry I will break the internet. Together we'd be dangerous. :)

I can't stand people like that. Look... you aren't special and I'm not magic.

She called three times! LOL! I spoke to her the third time, she dealt with K the first two times. I very much wonder if she will start calling the Registrar and Vice President to see why it's been two whole hours since she emailed her form to them and what their response would be as to why they are slacking. :)

It does make me wonder what I do to stores/companies that make them raise their eyebrows in wonder.

I seriously doubt you do much to bother other people. You're just too nice to other people to do anything horribly wrong.

Thanks! But I'm sure I drive my VW people crazy. I think they sold me a dud car, however, so they deserve some of it!! :)

Look! I made a phone icon to use for this kind of stuff! She has some cute stuff! I love stick figure art. http://www.nataliedee.com/archives/2006/Oct/

I got to talk to you AND your husband tonight! :)
But I need to get to bed, I can hear Monkeys rumbling. :) :)
Love you!!
