Hey! We finally got internet back! Supposedly, a fiber optic cable got cut while they were doing maintenance, but since this was the second time this happened in the past week with the same excuse, who knows what really happened. (We've caught this service provider making things up as they go on previous occasions, so we never are sure what is true and what isn't with them.)
As a completely off topic aside, my daughter and husband are both huge Beatles fans and I had so much fun watching them playing the Rock Band Beatles disc last night. My daughter is just learning to play the RB bass and she did surprisingly well for her first time playing. I, unfortunately, am hopeless at the instruments, but tend to do really well on a lot of the vocals and usually my daughter just shares the mic and sings with me. I had such a blast watching her learn (and do well on) a new aspect of the game.
I know...brain rotting mindless entertainment. I'm okay with allowing a bit of that sometimes, though. The kid just got done with 6th grade with straight A's and since she has maintained straight A's since first grade when they started offering letter grades and also placed into a handful of advanced track classes for next year I don't mind letting her kill some brain cells on a video game. Bad mommy that I am.
He said that unless it was intended as a double entendre (which is why he was amused), you might consider rewording that one for future use in case others aren't so amused.
Diplomacy is my big stick and I am swinging it for you.
