Today, finally, after a month of absurd miscommunications and false starts, I'm expecting a technician from AT&T to install their U-Verse system, intended to coordinate all the electronic systems in our house--computers, television, telephones--and a smaller overall bill. Ha! Let's hope that the system works more efficiently than the company that offers it. In the meantime, more travails: the hot water system sprang a leak yesterday; and the lights continue to act crazy. We are told there is a fix--at the usual vast expense.
I received this link from a friend yesterday, and offer it in the spirit of fun. Scroll down to enter your birthday if you're interested in finding out how many seconds you have spent on Earth--and other fascinating and useless information. Try it. It's good for a chuckle.
Enough. Here comes AT&T. Wish me luck!
