I have my new cell phone. I can’t use it yet, but I have it. I tried to get an unlock code, and the guy couldn’t find one. He referred me to someone else, so I tried them .. and they couldn’t find my code either. Sigh. The world is out to get me, it seems. One of the guys told me to try to call Cingular directly to get that code. So, I guess that’s my next shot. If I can’t do that — then it’s back to eBay, this time for me to sell the phone. I hope I don’t have to though, because I do like it.
Apparently, in this lifetime, I’m supposed to learn how to be a bitch. At least, that’s the way it feels, when life keeps trying to teach me the same lesson over and over again. I just can’t seem to learn it though. I’m too nice. I know this, yet it’s not going to change. Almost every time I do nice things for people, or am just nice in general, it always comes back to bite me in the ass. Twice this week at work alone, this has happened to me. Go out of my way to be nice, make things easier for people … and I end up getting screwed over. This is a repeated pattern over my whole life – I can’t even begin to count how many times people have burned me, taken advantage of my niceness, and then treated me like shit once they’ve gotten what they want. But, instead of learning to be bitchier, I just get more sad and jaded; yet I’m still way too nice for my own good. And I know this paragraph doesn’t really flow well or make sense — I can tell that as I’m writing it — but I don’t really care right now.
I bought myself a new domain name on Tuesday, for a grand total of 14 domains. Two of those technically belong to other people, but they’re still registered in my name. 😉 But, yes. I own a new domain – puzzleiam.com – and I absolutely love it. I adore the domain so much, I’m actually tempted to move to it away from here. Don’t get me wrong, I love having my own name as my domain – but I like that one more, maybe? Ha. We’ll see if I move or not.
Speaking of blogs, I added Snap Preview to this one. If you hover over any external link, you’ll get a little pop-up with a preview of the site. I think that’s just too cool. haha. If it’s too freaky, you can just click the little “options” button in the top corner of the pop-up, and set it so they don’t come up anymore. Hee. I already find myself hovering over links on other sites, and getting sad when there’s no pop-up preview.
I started upgrading the wordpress installations on my domain this morning, beginning with my lyric blog. Yeah. That didn’t go too well. Trying to update the databases after the update was installed gave me a fatal error, and now it doesn’t work. Luckily all the data is still there in my mySql databases, so nothing is “really” lost, but I submitted a ticket to tech support to see how to get this fixed. I’m a bit nervous to update this blog now, so I’m waiting until things get sorted out with the lyric blog first.
I actually knocked off one of the items on my 43things list (and one of my New Year’s Resolutions) over last weekend. I applied for my passport! One of the post offices in town sent out a flyer, stating they were having a Passport Fair. I stopped procrastinating, and went out to apply. It took me about 2 hours to get through all the lines, but I did it! My passport should be arriving in 6-8 weeks.
