Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Some of my movies channels were not showing up so I gave the cable company a call.  Several minutes on hold, a restart of my cable box, them “sending a stronger signal” and the problem is cleared up.  As the call was ending the guy that had been helping me said he had once last thing to say.  I was expecting a sales pitch. Instead he said that he wanted to tell me that I had a lovely voice.  “Have you watched Desperate Housewives?  It is like the actress that plays Bree.”  That is the redhead right – Marcia Cross?  I thanked him and then we both hung up.  Now I’m watching Transformers like I hoped.

I like to think that this guy is getting through his Saturday night shift but saying something totally random to everyone that calls in.  Lord knows I would have to come up with games like that if I had a phone support job.

Big Difference

One big difference between growing up in West Texas and growing up in Far North Queensland, Australia is snakes. Or rather the size of the snakes. Sure we have lost a lot of dogs to rattlesnakes in my extended family. But we never watched the family dog get eaten by a 110lb python that had been stalking the dog for days. But that could all change.

As climate change warms the nation, giant Burmese pythons could colonize one-third of the USA, from San Francisco across the Southwest, Texas and the South and up north along the Virginia coast, according to U.S. Geological Survey maps released Wednesday.

Just your cheery thought for the day. Who wants to help me turn this into a Sci-fi Channel Saturday night movie?
