Here I am…

Ok, things got so bad with the renters that I'm now holed up at Rick and Tina's place, spending the night in the “hippie room”.

It turns out that the renters called the rental agency and complained that the house was dirty, after Tina spent 10 hours over there cleaning it up and getting it ready. Well the rental agency, not having a single complaint about Chateau D'Isaster for the last few years, called Vivian. Vivian called Tina and Tina went ballistic. She marched over to the house to find out what the issue was and got to see first hand what the renters had done to the place in one evening. Tina called Vivian back with the info (including the fact that folks were in the basement) and Vivian went ballistic. Vivian called the rental agency saying that she wanted those -people- out of her house immediately and apparently the rental agency called the renters and they'll be gone tomorrow.

Sheesh!

All this for $2500 a night… It's not worth it.

I napped from 4pm till 6pm in an effort to catch up from last night…

I managed to coble Tina and Rick's old P-166 together, find 16 megs of ram that works, resurrect an old 239 meg Connor, load win95, and add an old external Viva 14.4 modem (it's got a rabbit icon that lights up for “high speed”) to get online with. It's slow, but it's also retro enough to fit in around here. It's really got me wanting to call a BBS just so I can watch ANSI scroll up the screen again…

And with that I think I'll stare at the ceiling for a little while and feel the Earth turn…
