Weeks With No Internet Take Forever To Go By 

It snowed today!

The cable guys finally showed up today and reattached my left arm, I mean connected my cable. Being without cable TV and internet for a week sucks. I always say I live under a rock, but boy without cable you really don’t have a clue what’s going on. I don’t have a job, I have no friends here yet, no network TV channels would come in. I had no clue what was happening outside of my own little world. Actually I will admit that it’s not all bad because for the most part news tends to be boring or depressing.

I have spent the last week trying to see if you really can shop til you drop. Just as soon as I think I have bought everything, I find more things I need. For example, I thought I had gotten everything for my kitchen and then when I cooked our first meal I realized I had no can opener. How did I forget a can opener??? It’s also hard to grocery shop for an empty kitchen. Just when you think you must have everything you suddenly find you have forgotten simple little things like garlic and green peppers.

We managed to get 95% of everything put away. All that’s left is some computer bits. I have decided not to unpack my books for now. Since we are only staying here a year I think I will probably just leave them safe in their boxes. There are still so many things I would like to buy, but I think we should pay off some of the stuff we already bought first.

We had some light snow flurries today. Even though it didn’t stick, it was still kind of exciting. It is supposed to get down to 19F tonight and 16F tomorrow night. I haven’t been in weather this cold in. I haven’t been in weather this in years. Today I broke down and bought a robe and a pair of fuzzy slippers. I guess I will have to bite the bullet and buy a coat. More money out the window. Ap0k is going to put the brakes on my spending if I’m not careful.

It’s taking me forever to write this. I am watching The Blues Brothers which is without a doubt one of the greatest movies of all time. I have probably seen this movie more times than any other. It seems that the minute it starts all I can do is stare at the TV. Pitiful.
