Still disconnected

So 23 days after we've moved, there is still no cable, internet, or phone services at my house. Last Monday I gave Comcast a final warning to get me hooked up by the end of the week or I would stop using their service and go elsewhere. Well, after my first sentence I'm sure you can guess how that went.

We are now going to have Dishnet for cable and AT&T for phone and internet. It actually worked out well. If Comcast hadn't royally screwed up, we wouldn't be saving a ton of money! With me not working, we need to save everywhere we can. Well, thanks to Comcast being a bunch of imbecils, Jenn and I are now getting all the basic channels, plus HBO and Showtime, home phone and WIRELESS internet for $50 a month less than our Comcast service without HBO and Showtime! It's a perfect time, too because Big Love (HBO) and The L Word (Showtime) start next month. Yay!

The cable will be installed tomorrow, but the internet and phone wont be done until the 31st. At least I can start watching the news tmorrow and feel part of the world again. LOL

If I don't talk to you before then, have a happy Christmas and a great New Year's celebration!! Mr. Potato Head says Merry Christmas, too. ;-)

Stupid comcast!!

So I am still without service at the new place. Comcast cant't get their act together and hook my place up properly. I placed my transfer request 3 weeks ago, my appointment was 2 weeks ago and now I'm looking at another week until I get service. I gave Comcast a deadline of Friday to get my cable installed and be 100% up and running or I am switching to AT&T's Dishnet service. I am so disconnected from the world. I have no idea what's going on anywhere or with anything or with anyone. For all I know, the world may be coming to and end and I have no clue. lol

I like not having to work. I like sleeping in everyday and not getting out of my pajamas if I don't want to. I like having the time to cook real food for dinner. I like having time to read. But I am tired of all my DVDs. I'm tired of my same old books. I'm tired of not knowing how my internet friends are doing. I'm tired of not being able to read the newspaper online. I'm tired of not being able to read

Not having this one extra bill for now is nice, but i need TV variety. I also missed a ton of my show episodes, including 2 finales (Dancing with the Stars and Amazing Race).

Anyway, I could go on, but I'll spare you. ;-) I hope you are all doing well.
