Tuesday I slept in. When I got up I spent a few hours trying to find stuff to do on the computer which didn't involve either working on my stash database or webpages. Then I went out and voted and did some shopping. I stitched for a bit after that.
Today I went to the cable company and picked up the DVR box that I've been waiting over a month for. Much idiocy ensued as I was setting it up. Normally, I am very good at that sort of thing (I once had a TV/Cable/VCR/DVD/stereo set up with an AB switch and an ABC switch so I could record regular TV while watching cable and vice versa). And I really didn't have any trouble hooking up the cable box. It was more that the cables I was using that I thought led to the TV and the incoming feed were actually going nowhere. I discovered the TV wasn't hooked up pretty quickly, but it took me a bit longer to check on the other. Fortunately I did check before I called (I actually had the phone in my hand).
And since I spent so much time messing with that, I decided to clean up all the connections (my VCR is hooked to the TV again, Randi will be happy!). Then I decided I might as well organize the big jumble of cords that connect to the N-Cube and the X-Box. And since I was doing that I figured I might as well fix the door on the TV stand that won't stay closed by installing the lock that came with it. Well, the lock didn't work, but I stuck one of my earth magnets on the metal thing in the cabinet that the other metal thing on the lock is supposed to go behind (but doesn't) and that did the trick.
I'm feeling quite proud of myself. No stitching done, but at least those !!! DVDs won't keep falling out of that cabinet anymore.
And now I shall end my post and go watch a movie that has already started *gasp* !
