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"

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.

Hope it gets delivered safely. :-) *hugs*

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.

Damn...I'm sorry, honey. That rather sucks! :(
