Internet Update

Hello. I'm a broken record.

The phone guy yesterday never reported to Telmex that there was a problem, even though I paid him $400 pesos. Jerk.

SO, with help from awesome-work-friend-B., I got the phone number of Prodigy in Mexico City that I will be calling more than likely, Monday. I must go this weekend and buy a cheap phone and call from my phone line at home.

So. There you have it.

I shan't give up. Damn it.

\Without the help of an AWESOME co-worker and friend, I wouldn't even be able to handle this. B., that I work with, has been awesome.

So today, she calls an outside vendor who does phone line service and he comes to help me. He's there for 5 minutes, finds that he can't do anything because the phone line box at Mykonos (where we live) is locked.

So, I talked to Olga, the Czarina of the complex, and she gives me the name of Neto, who speaks just a BIT of English. So, B., (that I work with), calls Neto and I have an appointment with him at Mykonos 201B at 1:30.

Everyone. KEEP your fingers crossed. Say a prayer. Light a candle. WHATEVER.

Yesterday. That's the ocean. Straight ahead.


Never again will we have internet.

Yesterday my sister asked the Magic 8-ball in her office if I would ever have the internet again, it didn't look good. "Not likely."

Seriously, you have NO idea how INconvenient it is to NOT have the damn internet at home. It is just ridiculous. Do you want to go to a movie? Um... no internet to look up movie times.

Do you have to answer a work issue? No internet.

Do you want to shop online? No internet.

Do you want to blog? No internet.

Do you want to read other people's blogs? No internet.

Do you want to buy some of your pictures off of dotphoto? No internet.

It is KILLING me. Truly. It's making me angry and frustrated and just downright MAD.
Apparently Telmex is going to come today to fix our non-dial-tone phone. Yeah. Right.


Why I still love it here*:
