Had I mentioned that I was going to Toronto in October for WordCamp? Because I am, you know.
Oh. My. Gosh.
I’m trying to organize getting a cable modem installed. The only good thing I can say about it is that it looks like they can do it in a timeslot where I am not at work.
However, I damn near had to argue with the “customer service rep” to get what I wanted – There is fast internet, with a sane cap (what I wanted), but they were absolutley adament that I get half-as-fast (and slightly cheaper) internet with a crazy-huge-large data cap that I would never get through.
Then, they wouldn’t let me get it as a non-1-year thing; contrary to what their website says.
And my favourite part was when she had me try and spell “M”.
I am so close to cancelling (zomg. If I could talk to a human to do that), and choosing someone else.
More furniture, and less being silly.
Somehow, seeing a person moving around in the space gives you a much better idea of just how huge it is (:
I’ve moved into a permanent place, now. Yay. I haven’t had one of those in months.
There is a kitchen. It has plenty of power points. And all of the cupboards in the world. At the moment, there is a singular cupboard with food in it. The tall cupboard, which screams pantry, is currently playing the role of armoire. There’s another filled with tech and music gear. Another is a bookshelf. There’s a bathroom behind the kitchen; and the biggest wardrobe I’ve ever had is on the right (it even has a light. Nice. Now all I need to do is get some coat hangers so I can store clothes in it usefully.)
There is also a wide open plain of space. I have lots of space. It’s a little weird. I think it’s around about 5-600 square feet all together. At the moment, the extent of my furniture is a freestanding hammock.
