And in other news

I finally did get to the We Are The Millers movie.  Parts of it were a little sleeping but most of it was good and there were a couple of bits that were wet your pants funny.  So, I'm totally glad I went.

It was too hot and the sun was way too bright*. And I barely had enough breath to get to the theater but it turned out fine.  I am, though, clearly running low on general stamina.

The most direct route from the theater to the bus tunnel (and, then home) is through the Nordstrom Rack. So that's the way I went.  I scoped out a new wallet on the way and while I was doing that Comcast called.

A very nice guy told me that the IP they gave me was on several black lists. Whoever had it before me apparently screwed my pooch.  He said he was going to fix it but that I should check with my hosting company and see if they had a private blacklist of some kind.  By the time I got home showed that I'd been cleared on all their lists so now I am waiting for the hosting company to do their tracert I can take back to Comcast or fix the problem.  At least I have the right Comcast department.  I have a phone number and a ticket number.  Looks like there's light at the end of the tunnel.  Thank goodness I can tether from my phone so at least have a network alternative or I'd never have been able to contact the hosting company!

*A week or so ago, I was in Office Depot getting a receipt for a return UPS package and I was chatting with the guy behind the counter.  It was on the first cloudy day we had had in ages and we were discovering that we were both cloud lovers. He said he was from New Mexico originally and hated the sun. I allowed as how I hated the glare and the sun.  He looked at me and said 'ah, you have blue eyes, too, doesn't it just hurt sometimes??'

I've had blue eyes for 64 years but the real hatred of the glare has only evolved in the last 15 or so.  I'd never connected it with blue eyes but today it was really bad so when I got home I googled it and found that it is NOT my imagination!!  A dude in The Netherlands did a study. Old and and blue eyes = sun probs. I feel vindicated.

Oh, just got the tracert from the hosting co.  Time to call Comcast back.
