We are finishing moving and I want to mention something I forgot to say before There was a ceramic airplane from Mexico that lisarea sent me years ago. It arrived in many pieces and I had promised to fix it. Well it has been not quite so many years that I did fix it and it has been on the mantel ever since

It has survived the move to the new place without incident.

If you don't know or remember what was happening in that thread, it will make no sense at all.

The new modem isn't working, the helpline tech couldn't fix it. Won't get a service tech until Thursday.

Fuck, I hate that shit. We got really lucky that our internet fucked off RIGHT before the virus got here. We had like four techs in our house, some for hours, trying to fix our fucked up connection before we just quit and switched to the only other provider.

PS I am super-happy about the airplane. I got really proud knowing it's been on your mantel.

AT&T can be a pain to deal with but the people can be pretty good. The local service tech stopped by saying he knew there was a self install scheduled yesterday and noticed we didn't have service. Ended up stopping a coworker passing by with a bucket truck and gave us a completely new phone service line and jack. Apparently the line had been cut multiple times by previous tenants and wouldn't have been worth using anyway.

I'd not heard the term, 'bucket truck', before - I had to look it up. In the UK, we normally call them, 'cherry pickers', which is equally stupid. I think the official name here is 'boom lift', but most people wouldn't know what you meant if you said that - 'cherry picker' is much more widely understood.

I've heard standalone lifts with a gondola on a scissor lift called cherry pickers.

Go super fancy, slightly more generic term and call them "Aerial Work Platforms."

I've been bad, neglecting this place and all. I blame Facebook. I guess.

Anyway, after the pandemic knocked me out of a prospective position when my contract ended in February I was out of work for four months. I got a job last month with an outfit in North Carolina where I'm working from home. (Natch.) It's a great place with lots of wonderful people.

No one in my circle of family and friends has caught the virus so that's a good thing, since we all live in hot spots. Even BIL, pro-Trump to his core, insists that folks wear masks when out and about. That's quite the turnaround for him.

Hey SharonDee! I can confirm that you have been bad and neglectful because even I have noticed your absence, and I am the definition of bad and neglectful. :hug:

Hahahahahaha!

I've been sadding a lot about the fact that we have not seen any shows or gone to any movies this summer or anything.

BUT THEN. Just this afternoon.

I opened one of the many many emails I get from our local film society, and it's about benefit concerts for them with one of the few local bands I really really want to see live but have not. It's a drive in concert in the parking lot of a largeish music venue, so it seems safe.

And the band is Itchy-O, one of the very few that seem like they could really pull off a drive-in show.

And we got tickets for TOMORROW NIGHT HAHAHAHAHAHA.
