Cougarfest...heh heh heh...Cougar
Been that kind of week, and the week's only half over. I can't say I am particularly thrilled by the way the math seems to be against me on this one. My sweetheart has been down with an end of summer/start of autumn cold for a few days, the ugly shadow of car repair has struck again, and I'm still way behind on several projects. This shit isn't as cool as the phamphlet made it out to be.
Got home last night just in time for the broadband service to be suspended, over some violation of my service provider's policy. The tech support guy said an email was hacked, an assload of spam had been sent out, and per federal regulations, the service had to be suspended. Fantastic. After finding out it was an email I hadn't used in years, the facepalming increased. Now, within a matter of months, I've had my checking account number swiped and used to create fake payroll checks for a cable installer in Ohio, and now this.
Gonna have to do a major online housecleaning one of these days...or catch someone doing this shit and beat their ass into a coma with a monkey wrench, sending a clear message on down the line. LifeLock may be nice, may only cost $60 a year, but you know damned good and well you'd tear some ass up with a monkey wrench if you knew you could get away with it. You may never say in polite company or otherwise, but you're reading this and nodding, or sitting there with that "I just experienced self-actualization...on the Internet" look on your face.
Thankfully the service has been restored in time for Probably Uncalled For tonight, picked up a pre/during/after show pint of whiskey, got some stuff to talk about tonight all ready to go. The weather was nice, and the last two days of work have been a snap, things are actually starting to pick up a bit...on the positive side. Hell, my beloved St. Louis Rams are enjoying the most time at or above .500 in 6 years.
Every once in a while, I even get time to stop and snap a quick photo like the one at the top of the post. I mean, I get that its an elementary school and all, but tell me at least two teachers didn't stifle a giggle at the notion of "Cougarfest" It almost sounds like Larry Flynt needs to sponsor it, buy them a popcorn machine or some shit.
