So the packers came yesterday, and looked at our stuff, and said they could pack and move it all in a day. So we're without furniture, etc. one day ahead of schedule, but it freed us up to sleep later today! We'll be hitting the road tomorrow morning and we'll lose internet this afternoon after we return our cable modem, so call us if you need to get in touch. I'll twitter and LJ from the road as much as possible.
Do you hate the "Can you hear me now? Good!" Verizon guy? He's known internally as "Test Man", and here's Verizon's style guide to deploying him. There's so much good stuff in there, like
His sole purpose is to test our network. In so doing, he takes a step, or a few steps, and then says the line "Can you hear me now? Good!" He should say "Good!" in a variety of different ways to maintain interest. Occasionally he may put more emphasis on "Good!" That emphasis strengthens the thought that he has gotten a good connection.
Last night WoW was wildly successful - we downed everything we had ever downed in Kara (Attumen, Moroes, Maiden, Big bad wolf, Curator, Shade of Aran, Chess event) in four hours and only wiped once (on Shade). High hopes for Netherspite and maybe Prince next time!
Since we're furnitureless, we sat on the floor while playing. Propping pillows against the wall and leaning on it helped, but I was still crazy sore by the end. I was worried that sleeping on the sleeping bag would make things even worse but I seem to have done all right.
Tonight we're going to do our last meal in Columbia (breakfast doesn't count!) at the place we did our first meal in Columbia - the mall food court. We might catch a movie too if there's anything showing, to alleviate boredom. I want to leave already!
See you in Austin!
