I’m waiting for a serviceman to come install a satellite receiver downstairs. He’s supposed to be here exactly between 12 and 5. I’m thinking about what I should be doing right now. I should be either sewing or cleaning stalls. Both of those activities require me to go somewhere where I can’t hear the door if/when he shows up even if I wasn’t wearing my iPod. So those are out. Napping? Might sleep through the knocking. Yep, so sitting here surfing it is. (Anyone who mentions other possibilities like cleaning the house will be haughtily ignored. Besides, I listen my iPod for that too.)

I have my orders for when the installer gets here. I have to actually tell this man that we require enough cable to run a splitter. It is approximately a 20 foot room. There is a 57″ HDTV in one corner. The husband says we need a small TV in the opposite corner. When he told me this I was scornful. He said that if someone is playing pool and facing away from the TV and a big play comes on then they need to be able to see it on the small TV. How’s that for guy logic? I said that for that time in which a person is shooting they should be concentrating on their shot, not watching TV. Otherwise, people shouldn’t be so lazy that they can’t swivel their head to see the very large TV. Besides, if you miss a really important play I promise there will be a replay. But logic holds no sway when a man is determined to make the ultimate party room.

So here I sit surfing. As much as I hate blogs that just post links, here’s what I’ve found today.

Andaloo – I laughed over his posting of pictures of naughty bits in kilts
Traffic Pods – Another surfing site. This one confused me. You seem to get 2 views for every 1 click and it has a 15 second countdown clock but there are other rules too that I don’t understand. It keeps telling me that I’ve finding moon and stars. I guess I should be excited but it’s just making me hungry for Lucky Charms.
And here’s another one Blogazoo This one’s no even running yet and people are advertising for it. How hard is it to come up with an orignial idea these days?

Ok, it is not 2:30 and I’m bored. As you can see from the above list I’m not very inspirable right now. I’m going to go clean stalls because that will magically make the installer appear.

  1. Hi-funny I too have ordered a sattelite this week and it is due to be installed Sunday between 8-12! This drives me crazy too-the waiting. It seems I can’t start a project until they are here and gone! I take it you have horses??? Currently, I only have goats and chickens but hope to add a horse in the near future (if things go well 🙂 Can’t wait to read more of your blog!

  2. I don’t sit and wait around for servicemen. If they can’t tell me when they are going to stop by, I tell them to honk 3 or 4 times so that I know they are here, in case I have the radio on or the vacuum running.

  3. Today’s entry just reminded me that we have a table and chairs that are supposed to arrive today. I had completely forgotten, but so far no sign of them. Good thing that I decided to stay home today… just too cold to go anywhere. Feel bad for the delivery men.

    🙂 who is nice and toasty!
