I don't think I mentioned it here but I woke up on Christmas morning extremely early, somewhere in the 2am range and I got bored and got online. As I was online I was checking out a few things and decided that since I got some money for Christmas then I was going buy myself a new monitor for my computer. A nice flat panel LCD monitor for my computer. Well I looked around and I placed the order through Dell eventually because I decided that the price was right and then it would basically match my system. Well that was almost two weeks ago and the fucking thing is still not here. In fact ever since I ordered it the ship date said January 6th, so I was cool with that even though if you look at the picture from which I ordered I do believe that it says "Usually Ships Within 24 Hours." So today I get an email telling me "Although we had anticipated being able to ship your order sooner, we are experiencing an unexpected delay with your order and will not be able to ship this order and any associated orders until on or before 01-13-2005."
That's it, no explanation except for a phone number that I could call and talk to someone there about my order although when I called there was nobody there. I will be calling from work tomorrow though because I'm very curious as to why in the hell it's delayed. Had they emailed me and told me "hey, we buy our parts from Thailand and due to the devastation there we are experiencing delays" I'd have been fine with it, no problem I understand. I would even have accepted a "hey, Bob was building your monitor, sneezed into it and we had to start over"... you see I'm just trying to get an answer here. If I call and they say they are having problems with my account or some stupid shit that they could have contacted me about I'm going to be extremely pissed off. If it is going to be another week to wait then I'll wait, but if they don't have a definite time I'm just going to end up canceling the fucking thing.
Hell, I've been thinking about it and really what do I need a flat panel monitor for anyway? It's not going to cook for me and it's not going to blow me, so what's the point? Besides, I've been spending less time on the computer lately. For whatever reason I'm really starting to get bored by it. I notice I'll sit on the computer and I really don't do a fucking thing; maybe chat with one or two people but unless I'm frantically working on a website, the net's really starting to be a drag. Maybe it's time to move on...

NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Don't do it Dave! Don't do it! Don't stop being on the net. My dogs will be devasted that they have no nightly buzz from you. Well, you can cut back your net time - just as long as your blog doesn't suffer. What else do you have to do all the time that you're hardly ever on? What's her name? Does she have big tits?
