So, I woke up this morning and did my usual routine of stumbling out of bed and immediately turning on my computer. Only today I was greeted with the unhappy message that I had no internet connection. I called my ISP and got a recording saying that their customers in New Jersey may experience service outages and that they expect to have the problem resolved within 48 hours. Ah, such happy news for before coffee time. So, I grumbled and shrugged, then went to the gym. After that, I went to Wal-mart for some new underwear (four pairs for ten bucks and no lead in the cotton weave, we promise!) as my old stuff was finding religion…. It was getting holey! Get it?! Huh, HUH?… *Ahem* Anyway, I got home to find my internet had returned and an e-mail waiting from the Capital One fraud department to contact them immediately. It seems that someone tried to charge over eighteen hundred dollars worth of merchandise on my card yesterday. Ha! Fie on them!! Another criminal mastermind foiled by my tiny credit limit!

All that before one in the afternoon. Heh, makes me wonder how the rest of the day is going to go. Maybe I should just hide under the covers until tomorrow.
