7/16 Didn't get it done

I tried but couldn't get the wireless router to work. Then I swam and worked on the sketches for BroadMinded. Listened to the recording of The Grade that Bron did, and practiced the accent a lot. I think I sound a lot better--but still not where I want to be.

Talked to Lee on the phone about stand-up. He said it sounds like I'm too busy. I admitted he was right, but that I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. After our performance in August things will slow down a bit, and I can concentrate on stand-up. Then in September Rec League starts again, so I'll be working on comedy on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, and every other Wednesday. With gigs on weekends--I hope.

Right now, it's working on conference stuff at work, and there's no time for anything else. My publications are going to be late which saddens me. I have a reputation for meeting all my deadlines.

Comedy-wise I have BroadMinded Monday and Wednesday, open improv on Tuesday, and am emceeing an open mic night at CSz on Friday. Luckily, this is all fun for me. So the stress is a lot less than it would be if it weren't so enjoyable.

I identify with the wireless issue completely!

My spousal unit, "Mr. Okay Fine" has had what he needs to set up our wireless network for over a year, ostensibly so we can both work off the cable modem at the same time.

Has he done it...uhhhh nooo.

Timeline is now perhaps next weekend if lawn doesn't need mowing. SIGH

That made me laugh. At least the only person I have to blame is myself, and I've sure been trying. Will give it one more go and then ask for help.

your friend needs a kid or two to whine at that spousal unit( I laughed at that) and then he'd jump....our oldest had but to suggest he needed wireless, and ta-da...he had it, with some glitches at first,(and talk of drilling through my walls--which I set a firm foot down on) but now all is well. Then the little one (19yo) said he asked first so why did big brother get it....and ta-da, another wireless set up....I hope you get yours up and running soon...both of you. Wish joe could come help you...he loves this stuff

If I can't get it working this weekend I'll send Joe money for a train ticket.
