02:01 am: Brief Note

On Thursday I took trash & recycling out, picked up the paper the new doctor filled out (she was worried about that, but I had brought her the last one to get a look at), and got cat food and a few more toys at PetSmart. I picked up the mail and sat for a few minutes in the recliner. I really hurt and was very sleepy (only had four hours of sleep) so at 6:30pm, I just went to bed for a nap. I woke up at 2am Friday and figured I'd be up for a while, which actually turned out to be awake until now. By the time I finish this, it'll be 24 hours awake. I took the narcotics when I could, but didn't sleep, I just didn't feel as bad. When one wore off Friday afternoon, I mailed the papers to the private disability and had lunch at Lin's China Bistro. I came back and medicated myself again. I set to record three Friday shows and went to bed at 6:30pm, expecting to go to sleep and thinking I'd read a bit first. Instead I read four hours. I got out here just in time to watch the news. I'm going back to bed in just a few minutes.

A couple of things:

1. One of the tie-dye tops that I bought not only fit, but it's the exact colors of my first tie-dye top. I don't wear the 20-year-old one out of the house because of the holes, but I'm really happy about this one matching.

2. I'm pretty sure I'm going to move to DISH. It's about $39/month cheaper than Comcast for a year and $20/month cheaper after that, plus it does a lot more than Comcast will allow. I was online to look through that and work out what DVR I wanted and so forth, but I need to buy a new router. DISH gives a link to Cisco where I would get a discount, but they're all wireless routers. I don't want one of those. I want a wired router/modem. Any ideas?

It's the only thing I've been spending anytime online on the last few days. I ordered a modem/router and two ethernet cables from Amazon, since they ended up being one of the few that had what I wanted and was the least cost. They're due here on Friday. Once I have that installed, I'll join DISH, which will take a bit because they have to send me the DVR.

Most wireless routers—all the ones I've ever bought, at least—have wired outputs as well.

I couldn't find any like that, but I did finally find the right kind of modem/router. The very first I looked at had only two reviews anywhere and they were both 1s, so I started looking again!
