NyQuil is the best thing EVER!

So after 2 nights of waking up at 2:30, I finally decided on some NyQuil last night.  That stuff is the shit.  I fell asleep at 8:30 and didn't wake up the whole night.  I woke up at 7 and I feel so much better.  I can even breath better through my nose, well at the moment anyways.  Yesterday, my brother happened to be off and came over to set up the new computer.  OMG!  It is so fucking fast and works so good.  He was downloading the updates for windows and said my download speed was to slow and to call AT&T, so I did.  They checked my line and said there was a problem with it and they would have to send out a tech.  Great, aside from the fact that I am a computer dumbass, I was talking to a guy named Fez, yeah like the guy on that 70's show who was trying to explain to me what the problem was in really bad english.  I was like OK I don't understand, then he starts talking about something in liters?  OK I really don't know what my computer has to do with liters, but I live in the U.S. dude, and we don't use that kind of measurements.  I guess that's what I get for talking to a guy from India.  You know I realize that they are probably paying these people like 5 cents an hour, but wouldn't it be worth all the jobs they could create and less headache for everyone that calls trying to understand the person on the other end to just have a frigging call center in America?  I think so.  So anyways I set up the appointment for next Friday when I'm off and like half an hour later I get an automated call saying the line check was fine and do I wish to cancel my service call.  Uh no you fucks told me there was something wrong with it.  So I press 2 to talk to someone else that I hoped I could understand.  This time I got this chick who said she was in San Fransisco.  HHHHMMMM, I highly doubt that, but whatever.  So I go through the whole rigor moroe AGAIN, and she says yes I am not getting my full speed.  DUH, this is why I called the first time.  To make a long story short, the DSL filter they sent me 5 years ago to plug in my phone line to was now obsolete, and to just connect the computer directly to the phone line.  Viola, computer works perfect.

Teacher meet and greet was interesting yesterday.  I went to meet the girls teacher first.  She has a guy teacher this year, which should be interesting.  He was short maybe a few years older than me, wearing a fedora, socks with sandals, and playing some weird jazz music in his class.  Beatnik was the first thing that came to my mind.  Well hopefully he will make it fun for the kids anyways.  After last years teacher......ugh.  The boys teacher is the girls first grade teacher so I already knew her.  She was OK from what I remembered.  She said I looked familiar and I told her who my Daughter was and she remembered instantly.  I don't know if that was a good or bad thing.  She said oh have a cookie, and fill out some paper work, I said thanks but I don't want to contaminate your cookies, then she gives me this oh crap your sick look and quickly backed away, so I made that visit short.  I was out of there in half an hour it was great. 

Today the drill sargent is putting in the wood floors.  HAHA, he has never done this before so lets see how pissed he's going to be by the end of the day.  We have our last game tonight, but I'm not sure if I want to go or just stay home and have myself another NyQuil cocktail before bed.  I'll make up my mind later.  Have a great weekend all my fellow bloggers.

  1. The teacher was wearing a fedora and playing jazz music? Did he have How to be a Douche listed anywhere on his lesson plans??

    Hope you feel better soon!
