Being a Slug Today

All of the electronics in my life have been rebelling lately.

I tried to use my camera this morning and got some kind of error message. I panicked for 30 minutes thinking that I'd broken it and was going to have to just throw it away before I got the problem figured out. I should probably just go back to taking Polaroid photos. Easier.

As was mentioned awhile back, I got a new cell phone with magical internet surfing abilities. The first month of online usage was free and then afterwards we bought the unlimited media package so I could be online an unlimited number of minutes. The July phone bill was okay but August's was almost 300 freaking dollars because they didn't have the unlimited minutes set up. I called them and they credited us for $200 and promised that things would be fixed this month. Ha-effing-ha. Cell phone bill for September? $600 dollars! Ack! I just called them and they agreed that it was wrong and are crediting $475 dollars and swore that it would be correct next month. This month they weren't able to issue an instant credit because of the high amount and said they'll call me in 5-7 days when it's credited. I'm afraid something is going to happen and they're going to tell me that I missed something in the fine print of the phone contract and we really do owe that much money. It's nice that they've been so agreeable to crediting things but I'd really like it to be correct from the get go.

Sweety was appalled that I'd managed to rack up $475 in usage time on my phone. Having the phone has really helped with my internet/blog addiction. On my lunch break now I'm able to go read blogs instead of doing things like eating lunch. And this way I don't spend as much time online at home on the computer.

I have totally screwed up our desktop computer. I tried to reformat it and I think it's dead. When payday gets here I'm hauling it to a repair shop to see if a professional can breathe some life back into it.

It's just me and the canines at home this afternoon. Sweety's joined a bowling league that plays every other weekend and I didn't feel like tagging along today. Sometimes, it's nice to be home alone. I will lay around for the next 6 hours and then frantically clean up the place before he gets home so it looks like I've been busy all day.

Has anybody out there ever had a hairdo that their significant other really hated? Did you change it? I got my hair done a few days ago and I had a lot of red put in it instead of just the little bit that was there the last time it was done. (That photo doesn't do it justice. It's almost a crayon red color.) I love it but Sweety hates it. It'll lighten up within the next few washes anyway. I think he should be happy that I don't have blue streaks. I've always wanted blue streaks in my hair. Or maybe he should be happy that the worst thing I'm doing is coloring my hair in a manner that isn't pleasing to him. At least I'm not out sucking somebody else's dick.

Tiny has finally resumed blogging and tossed out a new post. Hmmm, maybe I will give her blog a makeover today.
It is now 2 hours later and I've given my dog's blog a new look. I am insane.

The joy of hair, it grows out. Personally, I adore the red! Even crayon box red. I say tell him to suck it up and if he gives you shit, you find something you dislike about an item of clothing, a tic he has, his penis...and rail on him. :)

Debra said...

I love the color! Crayon red... this is crayon red. Click to see... Unfortunately it fades way too quick and I don't intend to redye it every three weeks to keep it that bright. With the black underneath, it seems bright then it is too.

I can't comment on the cell phone/net issues. I have so far remained mobile-less. hehe

Jess said...

I LOVE your new template, very cool =)... I should surf my blog list more haha..

=-)

Mark's never minded anything I did to my hair because I can normally distract him with my boobies. Maybe you should try that when Sweety gets home.

Midwestern City Boy said...

If you ever need to suck anyone's dick to get Sweety's attention I volunteer. ;) Seriously, I don't see what the big deal is. Fashions change so much over time. I remember when hair more than one color was unusual. And personally, I love the read.

Chickie said...

Shannon - It doesn't do any good to rail on him. He's a much better picker than I am.

Debra - Oh, I love your hair!

Jess - Glad to see you around :)

Bekah - You are full of useful ideas. Sweety thanks you.

MCB - Heh, thanks for being such a trooper and volunteering!

He'll just have to deal with the red til I get tired of it.

I;m not sure how I ended up here, but know it was for a reason. I can relate...my VCR (what's that ?) still blinks 12:00 so I put a book in front of it...my cell phone has been held together with duct tape since January and just died a week ago...I'm traumatized at the thought of learning how to use a new one...I can walk into a room and shut down every electronic device in sight...I've never had a watch that could keep the correct time...I'm just venting. Don't mind me. Oh yeah, and now I remember why I'm here...I couldn't figure out how to get an avatar for my blog, and you have one that actually moves...howjadodat? I'm impressed.

I managed to hack my Treo 650 and rack up about $1,000 in data-use charges that Verizon then credited back to me.

I feel your pain.

The hair looks awesome. But I'm one who likes to experiment with such things. Back in 2002, I had multi-colored box braids, which was exciting. Alas, thinning has cause me to go short, so there's not a lot of room to play anymore.

The Phosgene Kid said...

The red hair is ok, but I think you've cornered the market on pink for websites. The Peptobismal folks are going to come after you if you aren’t careful. Glad to hear you got some time to slack off a bit. The hair looks ok, I don’t tend to fuss with mine much, mainly because I don’t have any.

Debra said...

Thanks Chickie. :)

Phosgene Kid- haha You know Peptobismal never crossed my mind in connection to the color. Maybe because I just block out that that product even exists in my mind?

Mike said...

My wife is having bad hair issues. I am going to aske her to distract me with her boobs. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Chickie said...

Swampwitch - I left you a comment on how to do the avatar thing. Hope it works for you!

Rich Championable - The Treo 650! That's going to be my next phone.

You could always tattoo your head now.

The Phosgene Kid - As you can tell, I've been feeling a bit girly lately!

Debra - How can you block out the refreshing taste of Pepto?

Mike - So how was it?

patti_cake said...

I heart unusual hair colors. I want hot pink hair myself.

NeverEZme said...

I for one love the way your hair looks!! Then again you are one good looking woman anyway!

Bathtime Gal said...

You know, your hair looks fine, but here's a little tip......Baby Shampoo, fades color faster.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I love the way your hair looks! What is it that Sweety doesn't like???

You are too funny Chickie...! Tell Sweety how lucky he is, my dear..
And BTW: I love Tiny's "new" look...I love that you know how to do all that! Amazing!

I don't think you are crazy at all...and if you are? Well, it's the BEST kind of crazy!

bellacara said...

i just wanted to stop by and say "hi" and let you know that i put your bloglink on my friends site..thanks for coming by and saying "hi"!!

Chickie said...

Patti_Cake - Do the pink hair! Let me live vicariously through you!

NeverEZme - Thank you!

Bathtime Gal - If Sweety reads this, I know what he'll be replacing my regular shampoo with.

OOLOTH - I think he just doesn't like how fake it looks.

Tiny's new look wasn't too hard. I found a place that makes the template and I just kinda tweaked it a bit.

I'll just keep on being crazy since you say it's okay! :)

BellaCara - Thanks for coming by!
