Captain Forehead

The Simpsons Were Right

You can always depend on the kindness of strangers.

monstersocks and I went down to Southdale to see if we could get some tickets to the sold out Serenity screening. We saw kalmn waiting in line and chatted with her a little, then monstersocks headed off to do some shopping while I got ready to pester people for spare tickets. Before she left a young man came up to me and asked if I was in need of some tickets. Apparently he'd been at the last screening without a ticket and managed to find one (after talking to many people) so he decided to buy some extras this time and offer them to people who were looking. So, we got two tickets to the show for face value without having to pester anyone. Nice.

monstersocks and I ended up sitting with kalmn, briangee, watterflower and lucyruthe. I also saw a number of other folk like s4 and treefrog spacebug.

Very good even though there was no special guest this time.

Anyway, I survived my trip to the dentist on Wednesday and don't have to go back until Tuesday. Yay.

The new cellphone was supposed to be showing up today but the online tracking page currently shows a Delivery Exception claiming that I wasn't home (which I wasn't) or that the business was closed. I guess they won't let the management sign for it. Bah.

CONvergence is imminent. It'll be nice to have the 4th off afterwards.

I got my phone. It's cool.

I called Sprint to get my number moved over. That worked just fine. At the end of the call I asked about what my first bill would be. Turns out I somehow have three phones and three lines of service. They directed me to buy.com's cellphone customer support to resolve the issue. They closed an hour and a half ago and don't open again until Monday morning. I didn't find that out until I'd spent ten minutes wrestling with their lousy phone system.

So, the phone is cool except for the whole potential identity theft whatever portion. Hopefully it's just some minor bookkeeping mistake where someone else's order is showing up on mine. I won't know until Monday.
