This morning, I decided to turn on the tv to watch the end of the local news feed to get their take on today's crappy weather. Once it ended, I watched the beginning of the CBS morning news while I was about to head off. But then...dun dun DUNNNNN. The DVR/set top box started making odd noises, odd enough that JuneBug hopped off the heating pad I microwaved her to sniff at it curiously. Then *bloop* it clicked off and kept trying to reset itself while making whining noises.

So instead of getting into work before 7:30, I was a bit closer to 8am since I went right online to let Verizon know. I thought they'd put up more of a fuss but once I also mentioned that I moved the box from the old place and it had to be at least 8 years old, they let me know they're sending a replacement right out. Hopefully they'll put said replacement in a safe place since we're supposed to have a stormy few days and I'm supposed to use the box to send back the dead one.

But I am bummed that there were a couple of movies on it that I meant to watch as well as I had recorded an old concert, one that I hadn't seen in years and was one of my favorite albums for a while. Fleetwood Mac's "The Dance"

There is a wide outage of spectrum in states. I looked it up last night, ours wasn't working either, the whole eastern side of Florida was out. It was odd..

I'd think it was a general outage if it weren't for the heinous noises coming from the box.

I'm sorry you lost your DVR - you are the second person as of late to have it blow.

Yes, Firefly should have gotten more than a single season. Same with Girl Boss. I liked Girl Boss.

Thanks, m'dear *hughug*

It's out for delivery today and also since JonJon would NOT LET ME SLEEP and as a result my eyes are actually twitching, I'm going to leave after our group meeting this morning to go home and rest and wait for the package to arrive.

Also a bonus because I didn't want to turn on the AC since it was still only 69F in the house and it's forecast to suddenly jump up to the 80s outside by midday.
