Mid Month Update!

My DSL died last weekend. I called AT&T, they said they'd call me back the next day. They never did. I called again, and they told me they could schedule me an appointment five days later (today). I spent the majority of the week without internet at home, but finally got around to checking and was able to find a barely-there wi-fi signal to steal. Anyway, my appointment time range was 8am-12. I waited and waited, refusing to shower or pop out for a latte for fear that I'd miss them. Finally gave up around 12:15 and hoped in the shower and walked Bug over to Miriams for my latte. Called AT&T when I got back. Apparently they closed my trouble ticket two days ago, so I got to start from scratch. Supposedly I was going to get a new appointment for Monday morning, but the hard-to-understand lady said something about getting a call before then. Later in the afternoon on my way up to Santa Cruz I get an automated message that they can't detect anything wrong with my line, and to call if I have any questions. Get home at 10pm and mysteriously my DSL is working. UGH, I've had nothing but three year or trouble, I really ought to switch out internet services!

Anyway, had to get that off my chest. Moving on....

Been really busy lately. Yesterday was a my birthday. 28! I slept til noon, took Bug to get brunch with me, got a massage, and Bradley and Jax came down for a trip to Hula's and then the County Fair. Good times.

Today I went up to Santa Cruz to skate the levee with some other derby girls. Afterward we got some beer and food, and then one other chick and her husband and I went to see the Time Traveler's Wife. It was total meh, eh, bleh. I mean, it wasn't a horrible movie, but it wasn't good either. And I pretty much hated the casting. And there just wasn't any meat to the plot. And and and, anyway, I highly recommend the book, but the movie can be easily skipped.

Last Sunday a bunch of work folk went out for tapas in Carmel to celebrate the fact that a ton of us have August birthdays. It was a very interesting night. The sangria was nummy, the food was good, the company was interesting, and afterward a few of us headed over to a bar to sit and chat. And it was, interesting..... haha

I took my scrimmage assessment at derby practice on Tuesday and Thursday and passed!!!! This means next time they have tryouts to place eligible players on the A and B team, I hopefully will get placed! This will possibly happen before the off-season in October or in the very early Spring, the scheduling has been a little unclear. This also means that I get to participate in all aspects of practice, and really get to experience serious hitting.

Otherwise life's pretty much same-old same-old. All the furballs are doing well. Work has been busy and stressful but that's nothing new.

There's a decently big forest fire across the bay, about 50miles away, and it's been crazy smoky and there's tons of ash in the air. Quite enjoyable, lemme tell ya.
