- I'm all fired up about my phone bill. Two months ago we called and made some changes to our phone/cable/internet bundle. These changes yielded a much lower bill but some upgrades. Don't ask me how it worked, but I said YES. Last month our bill was higher than it had ever been. I called and was assured that this higher bill was a result of prorated charges and that next month's bill would reflect the new amount. Except it doesn't. In fact, it's even HIGHER than last month. I called and they have NO RECORD of any changes to my account. None. Their exact words were, "I have no idea where you got that number. No combination of these charges yield that number." Except that I have that number written down in two places after two conversations with AT&T employees. And they had nothing to say to that. It took 25 minutes for them to be completely unhelpful and I was starting to come unhinged. Then Bub started his pre-nap meltdown and I hung up. BD is going to flip his lid when he comes home so I'll have to call back, and that is NOT going to be awesome. If you work in customer service for AT&T you might want to take a break around 6pm pacific time.
- On a happier note, I went to Target this morning to kill time. I found these super cute notebooks on clearance and bought them with the possibility of using them for my future job. The job that I don't have and haven't even interviewed for? Yes, that one.
- Speaking of the job interview, um. I returned a message saying she wanted to set up a phone interview. The only problem being that she didn't suggest a day or time. So I left her a message saying I would love to interview but I haven't heard back. That was last Thursday. Do I call her back?
- And finally, this gem. It's sideways, but still classic. Clearly someone was trying to take video in "portrait" mode. Unfortunately video cameras don't work that way. If your kid lives on a daily dose of DJ Lance and the gang, you'll recognize these two.

On my mind
It's Monday, and here's what I'm thinking about.
