A Brief Catch-Up

Matt and I are in the house but the phone company just turned on our phone last night. We'll have to deal with dial-up service (once I get the new numbers) until our DSL gets connected. Matt is fuming that we'll probably go almost 2 full weeks without Internet access at home. The people at Alltel should be glad if they have all their limbs when this is over. At least we don't have to pay transfer fees now.

In other news, we're extending our congratulations to Chuck & Lori on the birth of their son, Benjamin Stephen, yesterday morning! The little kid weighed in at 8lbs, 4oz and is in good health. We're proud to say that Lori began to go into labor while hanging out on our new front porch with us Sunday night.

Also, a big congrats to our friends Sean and Anne on their engagement this past weekend. Sean asked the big question while they celebrated Jaw's 30th Anniversary in Massachusetts. We couldn't be happier for them and I personally think it's awesome that my matchmaking skills actually worked on them in 1995. Yes, you read that correctly.. 1995.

My parents have been Alltel customers for years, and are upset with Alltel because the company called them to let them know that DSL service had just become available in their area. My parents have had dial-up through Alltel since about 1998. My parents were surprised that DSL would be available to them since they live in the last house on a dead-end road near Clarks Corners. My parents are very frugal, so they discussed the pros and cons of DSL service and the increased expense at length, and decided to go for it. When they called to ask to have the service hooked up, they were told DSL service wasn't offered in their area.

Yep. That's Alltel alright. :)

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
