Terrifying, I know.
Right before I moved, I said to myself, “Self, this is going to suck. The house is not move in ready, and there is no way around the fact that you’ll be living in chaos for a few weeks. There is nothing to be done but grin and bear it.” So, with the knowledge that everything would certainly suck for a while, I took pains to ensure that I had a few comforts so that I could relax in my new house, even in the midst of chaos. One of those comforts was DirecTV (so far I don’t miss Versus, but ask me again in a few weeks when the Sabres are on and I can’t see them), the other was DSL. Well, the DirecTV is humming along quite nicely, but the internet is NOT. What I’m trying to tell you is that even though I called Verizon THREE WEEKS ago to set up DSL service “as soon as possible” I still have no interwebs at my house.
Now, ordinarily I’m a “roll with the punches” kind of gal, but I’m having a difficult time recovering from this setback because today was supposed to ROCK. You see, today was the day I had circled on my calendar as the first Sabres game I could watch in my new house with both my television and internet operating at full tilt. Tonight was the night when I was going to ignore the chaos all around me, put down the paint roller, and blog my ass off while watching my favorite slug-clad heroes play hockey.
But nooOOoooOOoooOOoo. There will be no live blog tonight.
The good news is that even though it’s a crazy scene right now, homeownership is kind of a hoot.
Home Sweet Disgusting Home.
The other good news is that as soon as I get the interwebs, I will return to blogging about hockey and stop droning on and on about my death trap house.
The OTHER good news is that the Sabres have been extremely sassy lately. They’ve been so sassy that I have almost nothing to say about them. Tim Kennedy’s roster photo pretty much sums up my feeling about the Sabres of late.
Adorable little angels.
In closing: I have no interwebs, my house is strangely lovable despite being filthy, unpainted, and most likely about to fall down, and the Sabres are so good at hockey that I have nothing to bitch about as far as they go.
According to Verizon, the interwebs should be up at and running at Casa de Katebits on Friday, but they’ve made promises before. We’ll see.
