To do...

-contemplate Otakon

-Making stuff for people

-Cleaning the room - I just killed one of those inch-long (large and dumb) mosquitoes, two beetles, one small bug, and... there's one silverfish is still in the room somewhere. It had the audacity to run across my desk, pause, then scurry away. WTF?! Don't know where it crawled off to... and I want to go to bed. >.< At least it doesn't fly? [edit] arrrgh, something just flew past my face. Where are these bugs coming from? They weren't here yesterday! Although it was absurdly humid and hot today... maybe they're seeking refuge.... =X.x=

-Find the other sort of ribbons... Hit two craft stores today, and neither stocked it. Ehhhh.... what kind of craft store are you guys? Oh well, employee of the second store said to hit the G street fabrics store. Buggers.

-Coding: HTML::PullParser. Need to get the correct RSS/Atom feeds. Regex just doesn't cut it.

-Work: Clock hours, now that I've finally been given the login and password and site. Here to hoping I'll see money soon. >.<

-Hmmm, by the end of the week, Mom will be in Taiwan. Sister will leave for strange medical camp in PA, and I'll be alone with Dad, until the end of the week, when we pick her up again, and then dump her at the airport so she can fly to the music camp. Quiet time. And a week after that, Dad will fly off to China, where Mom will meet up with him and they'll stay there for two weeks. Start planning for said two weeks? Mmm, one weekend to myself~ Hopefully. =^__^=

-Read books. La~ books.

-Kingdom Hearts~ =^^=

Ugh, AT&T... I dislike you guys...

You and your stupid hidden costs. Like advertising things at $17/mo, but requiring other services. Granted, cable people do it too, but they write $30, and their fine print's usually much larger. Like, "or $40 if you don't purchase other services", as opposed to "must add long distance and normal phone service".

And now, this unexpected early termination fee. Hmm. Except I was offered a 8 month contract (told the lady I was in an apartment, so we would sublease, so she offered the 8 month instead of 12). And I've received 8 bills. I... _might_ be short a few days, but somehow, I think I'm going to argue that 8, instead. 'cause really, that first bill was my "first month of service". Not a full bill, but... it's not a zero month of service either. XP

Can't find a hard copy of the original terms and conditions for the DSL service. Here's to hoping the bastard wasn't online only. Might still be in the apartment. Humbugs.

Will have to call tomorrow and argue though. Because when I canceled, I was told, by two different service agents, that I would only have to pay a few dollars for the few days of service between their monthly cycle and my cancelation date.

Unless their service representatives are idiots. I suppose they can take that route, but if they do, I'll add my voice to the already large number of AT&T customer service complaints online.

fucking grey area. If I had waited a few extra days, it would have been certain that I had gone a full 8 months with their slowass service. Never, EVER using AT&T ever again. Even if they got the iPhone.
