That sounds LOVELY. It's 100 F here and will be for some time to come.
same here in Bavaria, unfortunately. The heat is bad enough but it's the 4th drought year in a row and our ground water levels are dangerously low.
Corporate bad behaviour in the face of a Pandemic that's still not over.
FYI, Hubby and I are vaccinated and boosted and got COVID after our vacation. IT SUCKS.
I hope you're both feeling better.
Yes, we are, thanks! We were totally miserable for a bit over a week, though.
My own infection was brief and lightly felt, but yeah. We need eradication of the Pandemic, not endemicity.
I switched my mobile phone service from AT&T (they were about to start charging $6 more per month!) to T-Mobile. Same service at just over half the cost. Simple, right? So I get my new SIM card in the mail and when I put it in my phone, it asks for an unlock code (which I don't have). T-Mobile customer service tells me they need me to get a transfer PIN from AT&T and my phone's IMEI. Then I still have to tell AT&T to remove my phone from service and close my account. Then, I find out my number's been changed so I have to go back to T-Mobile customer service to get my old number ported in. Three hours later, I finally have my T-Mobile service and my old phone number back. AAAAUGH!! I think I tore out about half my hair by the roots.
In a completely unrelated matter, I thought the Levo treatment I was undergoing was starting to help my tinnitus, but I seem to have reached a plateau. It's still bad in the right ear and just not getting better. I'm waiting to hear from my audiologist regarding the next course of action.
I moved to T-Mobile several months ago from AT&T although I did the switch at a T-Mobile store which ended up with a $50 charge per line (3), but everything was done right there. My cell bill went from about $175 to $90 with autopay.
Confirmed. My plan offers an auto-pay discount as well. I keep my payment amounts checked though, to make sure the rate doesn't go up behind my back.
One thing that has been frustrating me lately is this damn song that's been stuck in my head for days, for no reason at all.
Most people have to deal with this; it's really common. There's a popular song with a catchy chorus you keep thinking of, or some annoying commercial jingle that you've heard every 5 minutes for days. It makes sense that you would think of it.
Me? Nope, none of that. I have a song that I haven't heard in many years stuck in my head, and it's not a good song, or important to me in any way. It's not even a song you'd hear on the radio or in a grocery store.
This is my brain for the past two days:
"Head, shoulders, knees and toes.
(knees and toes)
Head, shoulders, knees and toes.
(knees and to-oh-oh-oes)
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes!
(knees and toes)."
Goddamnit, brain. I hate you.
I know what you mean. I have a similar prob with a song from Winnie the Pooh.
My home remedy in this case is to kill one ear worm with an other: mahna-mahna!
(open at own risk!)
Oh, it's on. It is SO on.
I'll see ya' and raise ya'.
I think that this is a little like Global Thermonuclear War... no matter who wins, everyone loses.
Okay...I didn't want to have to do this...but I'm gonna have to bust out the big guns here:
Ya fuckin Bastard.
You're lucky I don't drop stuff from "The Mikado" on your poor unsuspecting heads. It took me a year to get some of those songs out of my head!
Gilbert and Sullivan were absolute geniusses when it comes to earworms. Thanks for reminding me! I have all their operas on DVD and haven't watched them in ages. Just the thing for next weekend =)
Frustration today: was in a hurry and crawled for 20 kilometers behind a car that went about 60 kmh where 100 were permitted. And no chance to overtake him on the whole stretch. I could have killed the moron.
