XM Radio, Wireless Routers, a Bathrobe, Some Slippers...Oh, and a Crown!
Did I tell you the XM radio I got for Christmas can't be installed in my car? I was all excited to get it put in and brought it to Best Buy on the scheduled appointment that C set up for me when I some skinny kid with a bandanna and the social skills of a gnat informed me I needed an output jack from Volvo in order to proceed. I went to Volvo and they told there was no such thing then proceeded to double check by looking up bulletins to find out that after market satellite radios can only be handled in 2005 models and up. Mine's a 2003. Bummer. I was hoping to prove bandanna-boy wrong.
So anyway I had to return my satellite radio and exchanged it for a wireless router so that I can enjoy Internet access throughout the house instead of only in my office. Sunday, on my own, I tried installing it and after three hours of frustration, loss of my printer connections, three new viruses and one blip of a connection to my other laptop. I decided I'd let Geek Squad do it. I've yet to set up the appointment. The router is sitting back in it's box on the floor.
I hate computers.
On a brighter note I'm enjoying my bathrobe. In fact, as I'm sitting here typing I'm all snuggled up in beautiful black velour comfort. I also love my slippers. The memory foam has perfectly meshed to the contorts of my feet and provide a nice comfy feel. Though they are partly to blame for my fall off the porch, I've since forgiven them.
Speaking of my fall, you should see my hip. It's about as black as my robe.
Anyway, I have to head to the dentist this morning to get my temporary crown removed and the permanent one put in. Over and out...
