After getting rid of my SBC DSL (motto: we strive to retain our World's Worst Customer Service title) connection, and then mooching off my generous neighbor's wireless network, at long last, I have fixed up an appointment with Comcast cable today. Hopefully everything will work out and I will be all set to roll with my own internet connection soon! If I have complaints about Comcast too, you will read about it soon enough on your friendly neighborhood blog :-P.
To give my chance at becoming the next ARR my very best shot, I bought a keyboard to practise my lessons :-D. A cool Yamaha keyboard. It isn't very high-end - yet, it seems to have a lot of features. My heart sank when I realized that I did not even know the meaning of most of the terms on the keyboard and when I realized that reading the keyboard manual would be a separate task in itself. Nevertheless, I rallied around and am diligently practising. Glad to tell you that at long last my left hand now plays chords instead of automatically following my right hand (in case you are beginning to get impressed, let me inform you: I am talking about nursery rhymes and the like here).
Apparently my area had a mild earthquake today. I say apparently because I happily and peacefully slept right through it. I came to know about it only when a local friend sent a mail enquiring if I had felt the vibrations too. While I am totally thrilled that I slept so well that I was unaware of rattling beds and windows, I am kinda worried too. 'Coz, you see, in case it was the real thing, I would probably be waving to you all from heaven by now (yeah, I am super-confident that a noble, nice and wonderful person like me will go to heaven only ;-)).
And that brings us to the conclusion of this pointless post :-D.
Update: I just got cable internet connection. Am typing this from home. The speed is blazing :-D! Now, here's to hoping that this will last ...
