Grrrrr

Can nothing work correctly today?

I got up this morning, hell bent on reporting on my New Year's Resolutions. Blogger was crabby and inconsistent. As I trolled through my archives to find links, I kept getting error messages.

The television was on while I was writing/fighting with Blogger. Suddenly, the television is a screen of crackling snow. Nice. The cable went out.

The cable AND the cable internet.

While I normally just compose in Blogger, I copied and pasted into word and finished my post about my resolutions. I'd post when the cable came back up.

Except it didn't come back up.

I called the cable company, expecting to hear that it was a larger outage. Instead, I got to make a service appointment. For between 6 and 9:00 pm tonight.

There are two problems with this.
Problem #1: I won't get home from work until 7:30 pm.
Problem #2: Grey's Anatomy is on at 9:00 pm.

If I knew that my cable won't be fixed in time for Grey's, I could high tail it to Mom and Dad's in time to see it, but I can't just leave the Comcast guy hanging. Or maybe I can. Comcast fucks me over on a regular basis.

So now I'm bitter about not having cable or internet. And I'm bitter because I wrote about my resolutions and I can't post what I wrote. So, being a problem solver, I burn the writing to a disc. I will post at work!

Except that my stupid fucking work computer won't read a CD RW.

Like I said, nothing works today.

Now, don't ya'll go thinking that what I wrote about my resolutions is actually interesting or worthwhile.

I'm sure my brain isn't working correctly, either.
