Well, here I am laying on the couch in my NEW APARTMENT!! It is just purrrrrrfect for me, it’s a studio with a nice comfy bed and an even comfy-er couch! It has cable tv (yikes addictive) and a full kitchen and it now has wifi since I got it installed yesterday. The guy who came to install the wifi tried some funny business, saying he had to put a filter on the cable tv to reduce it to 25 channels (from 71) because that’s all this complex is supposed to have. I was of course, dismayed since that was not what was advertised/promised by the landlord. THEN he offered to NOT put the filter on if I gave him a HUNDRED DOLLAR TIP!!! What a scumbag!! I just said I couldn’t afford that, but I hoped he wouldn’t put the filter on anyway. He called (or pretended to call) his supervisor and ended up not putting the filter on, yay! Then after installing the internet he tried to tell me that it was fifty bucks extra for WIFI . . . um, no! This whole interaction left me feeling dirty and wondering, how many old people has this fucker pulled this scam on and come away with an extra $100 or $150 cash in his pocket? I went to the Bright House Networks website and reported his scam. The representative seemed unconcerned. Oh well, like I say, all’s well that ends well. And in the end I got what I needed.
I am just a 1/2 mile from the beach, so I’ve walked there the past two days, and then walked on the beach (SWEET!). Oh how I wish I could have you all come and visit!! This is the best cure for SAD that I’ve ever seen, for sure!! The days are so much longer than Colorado, even now right before the winter solstice, it doesn’t get dark until 6pm!! I love it, love it, love it!! And in January I hear it’s just supposed to get HOTTER!! YEAH!
So, just four days left and then I’m off to Colorado for Christmas!!! SO EXCITED to see my family, especially my precious darling nieces and nephews!!! I am just going to soak them up for a week!!! I can’t wait. Oh, and I need to Christmas shop! I don’t have room to pack anything so I will need to do it all once I get there. Yikes! Should be fun and busy.
So, how are you, my friends? Hope you’re doing well this holiday season. Peaches!!
