So our p.o.s. cable modem is on the fritz. And it has been for at least a week now. We came home last Saturday night to no telephone or modem service, same thing all day Sunday. Sometime Monday the modem decided to come back online. Tuesday was ok as was Wednesday. Thursday nothing, but came back in the evening. Friday morning nothing, but now it’s back up for a bit. Called the sp and we have someone coming out tomorrow morning to bring us a new one. It just bites because I had planned to work from home today because of the crappy weather. Murphy’s law, right?
So on a different note, I love Nalgene. I was ready to go a little greener by purchasing a water purification system for our home, and was on the lookout for a sport-type bottle that could be opened with one hand (so that I can drink while I’m running). This way I can have a water bottle every day and be able to stop buying Poland Springs sport bottles by the case, thus furthering the need to recycle tons of plastic unnecessarily. Of course, Nalgene had one and they had one in pink, and they shipped it rather promptly, and it came with no over-packaging, no packing material, no b.s. paperwork. Just a little box with my water bottle in it. That makes me feel even greener and great for supporting a company like them. W00t!
