Today’s upsetting items

I realise that in the general scheme of things our little domestic problems aren’t very important, but in our world they are very important indeed.

First, I did not get the job I was interviewing for a few weeks ago. Got a letter today from the CEO saying that the contract they were counting on to provide the extra work had fallen through, so there was no job for which to hire. Foo. I was really hopeful about that one. So, it’s back to interviewing: I had a call today from a recruiter and the job he was describing sounded pretty good, so we’ll see…

Second, the TV has just gone on the fritz, and I think it’s permanent. This is a much more serious problem, and although it will allow us to get a much better TV, we won’t be watching for a few days and will have to waste our weekend looking for the new one and then waiting for it to be delivered.

Oh well, I’ll just get my hat and coat now…

    Hey, get one of those flat jobs. We/I get them in hotels lately, and they’re a-ok. Some potential mounting problems, I guess, but they seem so neat…

    Also, make it do DVDs and VHS… (I guess that doesn’t work with the flat thing.:-)

    Aren’t we supposed to make our computer be a TV now? Good Lord.

    You mean people still own TVs? That’s what computers are for!

    Yes. I’m not putting a 32″ flat screen monitor on my computer just to watch the news…
