Oh I was PISSED. I think I had to have about cussed at 10 different people over it until I gave up, called the repair computer thing and left a network problem report for them. Someone came out the next day to fix it.

Now the problem with doing this when I first called was...what exactly? Four days? Good fucking grief.

You should've tried UF. Imagine attempting 4th Of July and EPAA.

Ugh. I don't even know what made ours go out. The phone line wasn't completely down, it was extremely staticy with no dial tone. But every now and then for all of 10 minutes, we would get a dial tone. Happened about 3 times. I reported in the problem that following Monday (turns out it happened the night right before 4th of July. Figures, doesn't it?) so I was none too happy about the wait at all.

I had a better comparison, but decided to cover my ass instead. It involved Pedokiss, puberty, and Hannah Montana: The Best Of Both Worlds.

Nice. I've got pretty much all of Achtung Baby memorized, front to back.

Now if I can only learn every song on guitar by heart, I can be a walking jukebox like U2 was circa 1989 .

For the longest time the ONLY song I knew all the lyrics to without music was Walk On.


Now I don't even know that one.
