The phone company guy finally showed up at 7:30, and said he'd tested the outside connections and the problem was inside the house.

We paid last December for a guy to come check inside the house when the phone line was acting wonky, and all he could come up with was recommending that we replace the jack and the splitter and the rest of the connecting stuff. Which we got the material to do, and then the problem went away on its own before Himself got around to it, so the material stayed in the bag we brought it home from the store in for the last six months. Then we had this latest round of dead phone line and yo-yo internet, and Himself finally did all the replacing, but it did no good.

If this keeps up, I'm giving serious thought to going to fiber-optic for internet and cell phone service for the telephone, and the hell with a landline.

Grumble.

The phone company said that the repair guy would come around today before 6PM to check the line from the street to the house (yes, the one that gets blown loose, if not down, in just the right conditions of heavy wind and rain/snow.) It is now 4:44, so they aren't liars yet.

I'm not holding my breath, though. And if he hasn't shown up by 6:30, I'm calling them again to complain.

Well, Dammit.

Jordin Kare has died.

He liked the SCA songs that Peregrynne Wyndryder and I wrote together, and filked a couple of them, which was an honor.

This is not being a good year for fandom.

How do you find the word that means the Kraken?
An ancient ship killer! A bane o' the depths! A king!

Many a thing you know you'd like to tell him
Many a thing he ought to leave alive
But how do you make him stay and listen to all you say
How do you keep a blue whale from its dive?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like the Kraken?
How do you collar a Kraken... and survive?

[personal profile] malkingrey
So we had a good time down in Peabody MA at the Granite State Magicians' magic contest -- I suppose I can now honestly call it the First Annual Granite State Magicians' Magic Contest, because they're already planning to do it again next year -- and had dinner out afterward at the Cheesecake Factory on the GSM's dime because we were part of the contest crew. (I was the timekeeper, with signs for 5 minutes left, 1 minute left, and Stop, and my handy countdown timer.) Then we crashed for the night in Lyndeborough with another member of the GSM who has an air-conditioned house with a spare bedroom, and drove north again in the morning.

It was a good expedition, and mostly funded in one way or another by Himself's stage-magic work. But now I'm back up here in Colebrook, where the humidity is higher than the temperature and the temperature is high enough by itself to be uncomfortable -- nothing like it was down below, but as always, it's what you're used to. We had a thunderstorm and a downpour earlier, but it was one of the ones that don't leave cooler and drier air behind them, just more humidity. (On the other hand, it did lay some of the pollen, so that helps a bit.)

Tomorrow I have to phone the car people and make an appointment to get the brakes fixed, because they are making a Bad Noise. We also need to get the exhaust manifold fixed, but the brakes need to come first.

Such excitement.

...do I keep getting spam phone calls from The Brace Hotline?

I know the answer, I suspect. My age has put me into their target group, and they think that I'm stupid. Or rather, they know that enough people in the world in the target group are stupid that if they call a sufficient number of them at random, they'll pull in enough fish to make their quota.

Fortunately, they use a robo-caller, so as soon as I hear the words "Brace Hotline" I can press "END" and make them go away.

The pollsters, on the other hand . . . either the Republicans are getting nervous or the Democrats are already beginning to rev up their engines for 2018, because we're starting to get those again.

I just got back from watching it the second time. You guys, I liked it the first time, but I LOVED it the second time. It’s so dense with character moments but also silly moments but also this goshwow cosmic stuff that is MY JAM. GotG1 and Winter Soldier used to be tied for my favorite MCU movie, but I think GotG2 just moved into first place.

Some things I particularly loved this time:

We don't have the spare cash to spend on a convention where we aren't on programming and where most of the people we used to go there to see don't attend it any more.

Also, we have the Granite State Magicians' magic contest in Peabody starting at 1 PM on Sunday, so we'd only have had about three-quarters of a convention at most.

Just not worth it. Even if the Good Fairy Department were to drop a large sum of money on us at the last minute, said large sum would go to car repairs and the winter electric bill.

(Oil heat, goddamit. It's currently beating out permanent, as opposed to tarp-and-board, repairs for the roof in the when-we-get-money fantasies.)

Free Fiction Friday


From now on the 1st Friday of every month will be Free Fiction Friday over at Wittegen Press. This means we will be posting a new short story every month for our readers to enjoy.

These stories are exclusively for subscribers of our newsletter, but it is really easy to join.

It is completely free to become a member and all you need is a valid email address. Fill in this form at Wittegen Press and you’re done (sorry I can't just include it here - LJ & DW do not like forms). Don't worry if you join after the 1st Friday, the password for the month will be included in the welcome email after you subscribe.

What we WILL DO for our subscribers:

  • Send you an email on the 1st Friday of the month to remind you about the short story and give you the password for the month as soon as the story goes live.
  • Send you information about new books, competitions and events, so you don’t miss anything.
  • Give you two Free eBooks just for joining.

What we WON’T DO to our subscribers:

  • Spam you with loads of random advertising.
  • Reveal your email adress to anyone else.
