Couple things to add on the weekend events.

First, got two very nice b-day presents from the pack! Erin gave me the first season of The Simpsons on DVD. I didn't even know this existed (pretty sad for a die-hard Simpsons fan), so it was a doubly nice surprise. The episodes look great! Plus, they have all the footage that Fox cuts out to make room for extra commercials in syndication.

Then, Saturday afternoon, I got a new beer T-shirt from Jen! I always need more beer T-shirts (my friends have taken to describing me to those I will be meeting as: "Brown hair, probably wearing a beer T-shirt." ;) ) It's a most excellent Leinie-Lodge shirt. While it's generally not my policy to wear a shirt touting brews that anyone out here has heard of (I've got at least 5 Maine brew shirts, and 1 Alaska ;P), I'm definitely gonna make an exception here, cause Leinie's is pretty durn good ;)

Thanks, Jen and Erin!

Had some grumpiness, too. Was paying bills last night, and made the unpleasant discovery that my bill for my ISDN line was really quite a bit higher than normal. Turns out that my new modem has been dropping the 2nd B-channel when my bandwidth usage was low, and reconnecting it as needed. This put an extra 400 calls on my bill, and those out here know how Ameritech loves to bill for each local call =P Spent the rest of the evening hunting down the proper AT codes to send to the modem to tell it "Stop that!!" I think I succeeded :)

Something good: Brown ales. Tis the season!

Something bad: My damn heat's down to minimum again. I really need to find a new place.

Something disturbing: A good friend just came over to visit the US from Canada. He's got Indian ancestry, but is born (er, I think!) and bred Canadian. Some guy handing out booklets in the airport stops him, "Are you Indian?" "Nope! Canadian!" "Heh heh, you know what I mean." Seems like this is the kind of attitude that's causing the problems in the first place :/

I know where you sleep....

While I appreciate the thank you for the presents, the DVD which I have yet to be able to see. I suppose I'll have to purchase my own, how am I supposed to know I am being thanked when at that time I *NEVER* knew you had a live(blah!) journal. But I've found it now.... Be afraid.

Lil' kitsune sisters shouldn't cause trouble...

Behave when reading others private thoughts... Sidenote: Roho you are still priceless with your humor.
