It must be the axis of the earth or sunspots or something like that. One entire day without a decent internet connection and “Blam!” my world comes to a veritable standstill. By four in the afternoon (almost Martini time) the cigarette-smelling cable guy arrived and realigned the solar system so that my internet was once again functioning as it should.
The chicken soup that gently simmered for over an hour yesterday was taken over to my friend’s house, along with eight matzo balls, three sliced carrots and several un-neatly diced boiled chicken breasts. I hope he and his wife enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it for them. Isn’t that how you should feel when you do something for friends? I hope so.
I also hope that someone finds this blog. Yoo-hoo…anyone? If someone finds it, what in the world would they comment about? Hm. I need to do something catchy so that if someone lands here, well…at least they’d have a reason to leave their two cents.
While patiently waiting for the “PC Tech” expert to arrive, I’d like to stress the importance of the word, “escalate.” We are at the mercy of our internet connection and our wireless phone company. If your connections are down, lost or disappear and when your distress phone call finally reaches a human being, chances are they are at the bottom of the food chain (a remora fish, so to speak.) I have learned that if I employ the word “escalate” accompanied by “I want to cancel my service” miraculously I am transported at light speed to someone, if not at shark level, then possibly at barracuda stage.
So, here I wait on a Friday morning, for this PC Tech to arrive. His mission: to re-construct the spaghetti-like pile of cords, wires and cables associated with my overloaded table of gizmos and gadgets into a functioning hi-tech armory. I’ll let you know the results. Happy Friday! (Sadly, it’s not Martini time yet.)
I have a plan for the Pink Martini Lounge. If I put it in writing, it’ll come to fruition.
The Pink Martini Lounge: A place to go for a few laughs, relationship venting, food/wine thoughts and just about anything you’d talk about with your friends at a trendy watering hole.
There. My mission is in focus…now to get a sassy design and blog away!
See you soon.
PS…I can make a most fabulous Washington State Apple martini, not with Crown Royal, either!
