Dead Again

After the phone came back to life last night, I called the phone company and cancelled today's scheduled service call. I made and received calls with no problem whatsoever up 'til around 10:00 this morning when, yep, you guessed it, you knew this was coming -- it died again. I know I shouldn't have been surprised... I'm like a human lightning rod for every weird and diabolical and inexplicable piece of crap to come down the pike. At least, they can get somebody out here tomorrow so I won't have to wait several more days. Even if the damned thing resurrects tonight, I still want the line thoroughly checked out. Something is wrong and causing this anomaly that's turning my phones into zombies. Suddenly dead and just as suddenly reanimated phones are freaking me out. Best to get it figured out and fixed, especially since my wireless online connection is cranky as hell today, which is making me cranky as hell.

Here's a warped New Year's Resolution for those who don't yet have any of their own. If you've been spamming people and get caught, deny it and then get somebody whose reputation used to be better than yours to speak for you and blame it on ... PublishAmerica.

Excuse me while I administer a little First Aid; I seem to have laughed my ass off.

I haven't made a point of hunting down Words Gone Wild today, but I did see on one site repeated references to "Barnes and Nobel." We all know what Nobel prizes are. I'd be extremely surprised if any of those referencing it are in a position to win one.

Yo, Leroy! Bernadette wants to know, comment allez-vous?

Monsieur Doucet, I want my phone! I don't get telemarketing calls, not since the Do Not Call list, but I'm missing my crank calls. LOL.

We must live in the same neighborhood. Is it raining? Our phones go in and out with the rain sometimes.

The other thing that has happened to me is one bad phone takes them all down. Yep, one rotten apple destroys the whole bunch.

Serena Joy said...

Corn Dog, it was sunny and warm when it died, pouring down rain when it revived. You might know things would be ass-backwards at my house. LOL. I know what you mean about "one bad phone" -- I've had that happen, too.

Talk again,

Serena Joy said...

SM, I like your style and your attitude.:)

I'm a little bit familiar with Bierce, but not that much. I know he disappeared without a trace, which I hope is not portentous for modern-day hunters of the satirical and the nonsensical.
