Notes From The Homefront
Posted by thedarwinexception on June 3, 2007
So Rainman was supposed to be here this morning to come and get his stuff. He hasn’t shown up yet. But as I was putting his pills and medications into a box for him, I did find a picture of him and the blind girlfriend. I scanned it and then put it away – just so I could show it to all of you.
Aren’t they a beautiful couple?
In other news, the Dish is working again. The service guy came on Friday and said “Oh No, you didn’t need to cut down those trees on the left – you need to cut down those trees on the right. So we got the Tree guy out here again the first thing Saturday morning. And he cut down the two trees on the right of the dish.
After that, the Dish worked, right? Oh no – because nothing can be as simple as all that. No, we *still* had no reception, so I called Dish Network – again. And this time I told them “Look, people, I have now cut down 6 trees and I still can’t watch TV. I want someone out here *today* to fix this shit, not next week – today. Oh, and by the way, I want a credit on my account, too.” Surprisingly, they sent the guy out on Saturday afternoon – and they gave me a credit.
So, the guy came back Saturday afternoon and he raised the Dish up about 12 feet. That seemed to solve the problem. Which is a good thing, because I was having a serious Law & Order jones thing going on. You’d be surprised how much you can miss that shit.
And we still have no shortage of trees on the back property, as these pictures can attest.
Pretty, isn’t it? Almost as beautiful a thing as Rainman and the blind girlfriend.
And I finished the Raggedy Andy! Woo fucking Hoo!!! I am so sick of making dolls that I could just punch Andy in the head every time I see him. My mother better appreciate these fucking things, that’s all I’ve got to say. I will never make a doll again, I’m quite sure.
So I am taking tonight off from sewing, and I’ll start the next thing off the top of the pile tomorrow.
But now, Raggedy Andy is done and the two dolls are happy together.
Not exactly Rainman and the blind girlfriend, but…..
