Holy speedy delivery, Batman....

Remember those glasses I ordered on Friday? Well, I got a call from the optical place at Sam's last night telling me that they were in. That's something like a 48-72 hour turn-around time. On a weekend no less. I'm fairly impressed. Now it's just a question of whether or not they made the glasses right ;)

Last night was nice. Ruben called to let me know that the Girl Scout Crumbs[*] I had ordered were in. Since I hadn't dropped in to visit for a while I decided to head over and see how things were going. He showed off some of the new home furnishings (including their new, ginormous king-sized sleigh bed) and I showed off the nifty new phone. Typical brother/guy stuff. I also got to loot his garage for a couple of things that he wanted to get rid off and I could actually use. I got to show Victoria (the 6 year old) how to play with a Sawzall. I think I'll make a very good godfather ;).

I was also trying to carry Isabella (not during the sawzall stuff, the rest of the time), but she was having none of that. Apparently her new teeth are poking through and this is making her grouchy. She's getting big though. Surprisingly strong too. It took a couple of hours of hanging out before she was more or less ok with me again. Although by the end of the evening she had fallen asleep on me (random note, cycling through ring tones on a phone can put a baby to sleep ;). My folks stopped in while I was there and I was amused to watch my mom and my brother making silly faces at the little one for a good hour or so.

Eventually I headed home to relax and get stuff ready for today. Do I lead an exciting action packed life or what? ;)

This weekend was spent a) sorting house stuff , b) sleeping, c) hanging out with family. Saturday evening was probably the laziest evening I've had in a while. Since I'd been doing house stuff all day, I ended up falling asleep on the couch before the first showing of Trading Spaces. I woke up just before the second showing (only slightly disoriented to see the same stuff I had just seen on TV being replayed), I watched that and about half of Deep Rising (good cheesy sci-fi/horror movie with amusing actors and better than average dialogue and a fairly cool monster) before I decided that it was time to crash. Funny how much earlier you end up going to bed when you've been doing stuff all day.

[*] - Victoria managed to drop kick the box holding all the cookies which made me surmise that they would be delivering crumbs rather than cookies.

To all the people living around me with cable....

Stop streaming movies and porn!

Get off your computers and spend some quality time with your families. Leave the computer stuff to us geeks.

Bah. I'm not asking for much. All I want is to be able to do lj stuff without having huge lags and occasional disconnects. That's all. It is times like this when I really really really miss having a T1 line in my room (I'm sure folks with dial-up connections really sympathize with me right now ;).

I have more stuff to post and reply to, but I'm going to wait until people start going to bed.

These gosh darn peak hours are annoying me.
