About two months ago, in the middle of the Great Shoulder BooBoo Incident, I got an email from Clear, our internet provider, that they were pulling out of our little backwoods market on November 6. They thanked us for all the money we'd given them over the years for their really crappy service and wished us luck in finding a new internet provider. Well, hell. I mean, it really was crappy service, but it was there, ya know? So I had two months. Never give a procrastinator two months for anything.
September was a lost month because I was sick as a dog, the first part of October was taken up with the Cute Chicks being sickly, and the last part of October was taken up by all the shit I didn't get done in the previous 6 weeks.
I woke up Monday, after 4 hours of sleep (thank you, Baby Queen) and realized Friday was November 6. Shit! So I called around to the 3 possible internet providers that are willing to cover Bumfuck Nowhere, Texas. Guess what? So has everyone else, only they did it earlier and were already scheduled for the service (most of this requires satellite dishes, wiring, etc.). First choice would be sometime in mid December. Second choice just laughed and laughed. Third and final choice, the local cable company, said "Yeah, sure, how about next week?" Well, it's better than next month, so I went with it.
Long story short, I won't have internet service from Friday midnight to sometime Tuesday. I'll try to pre-post some shit, but if I don't, don't get freaked out. I'll be back. Here's something to make up for the inconvenience.
