Challenges when it's hot

I think Zoey stepped on the a/c remote and while I was on the phone with the fucking cable company, I noticed that my body was getting as hot as my temper. ACK! Fixed now. The air conditioner, not the cable company. I pay for and have about 5879 channels. Out of those, seconds after the game started, the channel that brings me the Mariners game went out. The error message indicates that the cable company is not sending the signal. None of the other channels are suffering any kind of outage at all.

According to the cable guy the only way to fix this is have the cable guy come out here. I have a real hard time figuring out what the fuck he can do here at my house to fix the one single channel not coming into my house but WhatEvEr. Tomorrow from 2-4.

BUT I did not know that the non-HD signal of that station is available. It's not on their channel listing on their website. So 1. I can, at least, watch the game and 2. this means I probably have more like 9847 channels available and don't even know it (or care, actually).

What a PIA. At least I don't have to take off from work to sit here and wait for the guy.

And the Mariners are losing losing losing and it's only the 3rd inning.

Meanwhile back to Zoey. She has a self feeding bowl of dry kibble but also gets whatever she wants in wet food. Well, more accurately, she gets what's on sale and/or cheap in wet food whenever she wants it. She's been eating this one brand that is inexpensive and easy to deal with for a couple of years. Lately, she's been licking the juice and ignoring the rest. So today, at the store, I picked up a couple of cans of another kind.

Ha. Turns out, all she wanted was a change. Her wet food is dished out on the kitchen counter in one spot. Now every time I go into the kitchen, she hops up on the counter and patiently sits at her spot waiting. It's cracking me up. I give her a fork full or two and she eats it and then goes away happy. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Ok, a/c is working its magic and the Mariners remembered what they were there for and are now only behind by 1. And I have ice cream.

Today's production...
