*I HAVE INTERNET ACCESS!* [Apr. 4th, 2010|05:10 pm]
John
Okay - the only outlets I have are in the kitchen - and, when I tried using my electric tea kettle, I noticed the power cord got awfully hot, so I have to be careful drawing on the power in the kitchen.

(Yes, I actually have a lovely stove-top tea kettle - the use of the electric was to see if I dared risk Miss Sylvia on the current electrical setup. Ans: no.)

I also have lights in the living room - but no where else.

To top that off, up until today, I had no phone, no mail (my first NetFlix movies showed up, but nothing has shown up since then), and no internet. My new home was rapidly becoming defined by what wasn't, not what was. And I was feeling very isolated... perilously so.

But Comcast, bless them, can send out a tech on a repair call even on Easter Sunday, and they did. I have internet access. With internet access, I can get by without a phone (Skype works well) and I can research who to call and pester about the other issues that are bugging me.

Obviously, I haven't been online much, and if there's anything crucially important out there, please let me know.

YAYYYYY! Here's hoping the postal stuff just turns out to be a glitch, and the wiring job proceeds apace so you can, you know, *light* your new house and entertain yourself.

(And silly me, I should have checked LJ before sending my test message.)

HUZZAH! Hooray for power and light and all such groovy things. Let me know if there is anything you need (that I am capable of providing)...
