interim measures

Spent this morning splitting my attention between my actual work and making phone calls to get utilities set up in the new apartment. Gas and electricity are good to go for Friday; internets and landline* sometime in the next couple of weeks whenever Cavalier Communications gets around to it. Comcast might have been faster, but they seemed intent on punishing me for being an existing customer (no shot at the $19.95 cable intarwebs price, as well as a $99 installation fee) and as for Verizon, don't make me laugh. As if they didn't have a crappy enough reputation to begin with, the way they screwed my employers around when it came to moving our T1 line into the new building pretty much put the kibosh on any thoughts I might have had of trusting the unholy spawn of Bell Atlantic and NYNEX. So, if I can extract my futon from the storage shed this weekend (Hi, P!) I can actually move into the new place and start commuting from there next week.

Work is slow today. I have to re-do a bunch of paperwork because there's a mismatch between our new notary's name on the org chart and her name on the notary stamp, and there's some invoices to be coded and put into tracking, but aside from that...nada, until the mail gets here. Most of our customers and vendors are taking this short week off, and so are the company's brass for the most part. My boss Leo is included in that number, and Luis' grandmother died early this morning so he was only in long enough to pass the baton to me when I got in. So it's just me here today.

Oh, yes - for those of you worrying about my health so I don't have to, I called Kaiser and scheduled an appointment with my new doctor. This should result in more appointments with other doctors, and some new durable medical stuff.

*It was a nickel less to get landline + DSL than to just get DSL. I don't understand it either. Come to think of it, I don't even know if I have a normal phone any more. \o/
