I have decided to be Asian.

There are good reasons for this.

I love white go go boots. All Asian girls look good in white go go boots.

I look like I am in costume when I wear white go go boots.

Asian girls can wear sweat shirts and hoodies and it looks like a fashion statement.

When I wear sweat shirts and hoodies, I look like an under dressed German tourist.

Asian girls can wear flat heeled sneakers and they look cute and adorable and like they have Cinderella feet.

When I wear flat heeled sneakers, I look short and like I have big feet.

I just don’t see anything going wrong with this plan. Also it is for fashion. You can’t argue with fashion, dammit!

office!

June 6, 2015

Things done today:

Reviewed 8 student assignments.

Reviewed 1 writing sample.

Read 3 feature scripts.

Set up office. Yay yay yay!

office!

Yeah yeah yeah I know it is ridiculous it took THAT LONG to set up the office, but I have been really busy and also there was that getting injured thing that made standing on ladders and moving anything heavy a really bad idea for a long long while.

Look! Ooh! Ahh! Pretty!

Feng Shui!

donna the deer lady!

I figure everyone getting stormed out in Texas and places other could use a laugh about now.

Donna the Deer Lady is hilarious to me and just never gets old.

That’s Austin. A lot of Texas is underwater. I’m not. [Knock wood.] The old apartment is. Wow I kicked and screamed about that move but now it looks like the timing was really good for that move.

This tree is a physics dilemma. [Shut up, I like to make all things difficult math.] It is a freaking platypus tree. It has leaves from one tree, blossoms from another, and then it goes all Mars Asian appetizer pea pod spikes.

What the hell is this tree?

 

 

clear vs. the moon

Clear vs. The Moon

 

Clear is so not working out at the new place. I talked to a nice customer support rep online today who changed my account address and copied and pasted the site’s online trouble shooting advice into our chat window.

Thanks, Nomine M.

That didn’t fix a bad internet Clear signal I’ve been fighting since December that keeps getting worse. And that is with an extra boost from an Apple wireless base station I dug out that is the ONLY tenuous reason Clear is working intermittently at all now.

Ahhhh!

 


 

So, Clear’s out.

 


 

Clear being out means my internet options are —

Buy a new modem that works with an antennae and hope that will fix the Clear problem.

[I am skeptical. Clear recently got bought out by Sprint which was the beginning of the end for things Clear working. Also I hate Sprint they overcharged my elderly mother in nefarious ways once and wouldn’t fix it and made her cry.]

OR —

Pick between Grande, AT&T Uverse, or Time Warner Cable.

 


 

Time Warner Cable will never collect another dime from me. I hate Time Warner Cable like Billy Graham hates Satan.

That leaves, unless there is some godsend service I don’t know about, AT&T Uverse, or Grande.

 


 

Online reviews for Grande are wildly divergent. Some reviews are shaking tambourines shouting, Grande! Grande! Grande! Others are shouting, Burn in Hell, Grande! Grande! Grande!

The thing I keep reading in negative reviews that is consistent though is dead internet reception.

I can’t do that.

 


 

The building uses Uverse, which appears to always work and is my backup when Clear goes so toes up I can’t work in the apartment and have to hit the building’s lounge for a working signal.

AT&T also though wants long term contracts and hundreds of bucks in installation and other fees and every time I look at all the stuff AT&T wants I feel like I’m a Native American standing on New York shores and some oily European just off a wooden ship is handing me glass beads.

 


 

I just keep staring at it all thinking, Seriously?

A guy in 1969 could dial home from the moon, but in 2015 Clear can’t keep an internet signal up a few blocks from my apartment and it takes $300 bucks and a commitment longer than a Baptist wedding to get an AT&T signal?
