OH, YES...I DO HAVE A VOTD!

HUGE VOTD.  So is this post really late or really early? This is what should have showed up here last night. Don't blame me, blame Charter. Those of you that see my FB profile know that I am extremely disgusted with Charter Communications. Over the last few months our internet keeps stopping and then restarting; sometimes a ton of times during the day. Then we may have a stretch where it works fine. Then on other days it's off for huge sections of time. Like last night.

I'm on the verge of going down there and decking the first person I see.  We had problems a few months ago; bought a new router. That didn't fix it. Bought a new modem. That didn't fix it. Finally got the idiots out to the house where he did some messing around, saying that Kev needed to call in when he got the new router to get it set up.  He did call in, you a-hole.

He left after "supposedly" fixing it. No more than an hour later, down again. Um...really?

Longish story shortish, they've been out 3 times and still can't get it right. Everytime Kev calls they tell him to reset everything. Um...really? Is that what we should do? Like we haven't done that 8,000 times in the past four months?  Even my damn computer is smart enough to tell me it's an issue on their end, something to do with the DNS. My patience is gone. Well, it's actually been gone since the first time they came out and accomplished nothing. They don't seem to have any trouble accomplishing the removal of my money from my checking account every month, though...they are on their game there. I am not a person that is happy without internet. For realz. It makes me cranky, and trust me when I tell you, a cranky Diane is not a pleasant thing for anyone. Even me.

VOTD over. 

So that's why this post was not up last night. By the time my interwebs was working, it was way too late to do this. So I quickly uploaded my pic so I could do this from work today. Ya' know, because I work so hard.

I probs should clarify that I honestly DO work hard; I'm just fast and get caught up quickly. And for now, the bossman is off to another town for court which gives me at least 3 hours to play.

On to the mani!!  I was looking at my last post and thought to myself, time to use dark polish, woman. My growout is starting to annoy me, and I'm not ready to soak off my nails for a reapplication, so expect darker colors for at least a few days.

I was just kind of playing around with this. I painted my nails black and wanted to just add different brights to that. Decided I would grab a bunch of Kleancolor metallics and a striping brush, and 20 minutes later, this is what I had.  
Orly Liquid Vinyl is my black base, and then I just randomly striped on Kleancolor Metallics in Aqua, Pink, Yellow, Purple and China Glaze Riveting. 

It looks less murky in person than it does in this picture, but even in this pic, I do like it. It keeps catching my eye as I sit here, and I consider that a good thing. I'm kinda' glad it's not sunny out because I have a feeling this one might be hazardous while driving.

Not that I would ever even consider looking at nails or taking pics of nails while driving.......

  4. I feel your pain with your IP, I have been going through this for 5 years now. I get so tired of calling them. But I have no other choice. They are the only ones available in this area. Century Link sucks!

    1. It's just frustrating. I've had Charter for more years than I can remember without any problems so I don't understand why there is suddenly a problem. Ugh.

  5. We lost internet with a power outage. It was only a few hours...our whole family was in panic mode. More worried about losing internet than the ice cream melting in the freezer! This is gorgeous! Straight to my "gotta try it" file!

    1. I lost power for a few hours late at night. I lit candles and there were probably 5 or 6 times when I thought, "oh, I'll go on the computer" and then would remember I couldn't. lol

  6. Your charter experience still sounds better than ours for the last 2 years. it took a year and a half for them to fix it, and 14 service calls. They changed everything....ran a direct line, changed all the wires, new cable boxes, reconfigured the modem 8 different times.....now, when we have issues, they immediately send a supervisor out. because they know i already have enough documentation to sue the pants off of them. lol.

    1. We're still having major problems. At this point they owe me some damn money.
