So I noticed that I've been getting crazy with the snooze button lately, hitting it every 5 minutes for up to 30 minutes or so. This happens sometimes, usually gradually. I get worse and worse about snoozing, then one day realize I'm hitting snooze for 45 minutes every morning (yes, it's gotten that bad before) so I do something drastic to get myself to stop. It works, and for a while I'm getting up shortly after my first alarm until I start slipping again.

I've never been able to get up with just the first alarm. I have to snooze at least once. I've tried not snoozing at all, and it just doesn't work. My brain has a block against such things.

Anyways, I'm in the "Oh man I need to cut this out!" stage of my snooze cycle, so I downloaded an alarm app for my Incredible that makes you solve math problem before it turns off. I have it set to Medium difficulty, with problems like "72-29+15". To hit snooze, I have to solve one such problem, to turn off the alarm completely I have to solve THREE. Correctly.

Yeah, it turns out I'm not good at doing math at 6:30 in the morning. This morning I think I got more wrong than I got right, though yesterday I got them all on the first try. BUT! It HAS helped me get up faster. I'm down to two snoozes before I get up. After forcing my poor brain to add and subtract numbers, I kind of lay there staring at the wall/ceiling/pillow thinking "Man, I wish I was falling back asleep" but not actually falling back asleep. Victory!

In other news, I'm rooting my phone this weekend. I'm slightly nervous, but mostly excited.

Livejournal, I haven't told you about The Fax Calls lately, have I?

There's been this fax machine that's been calling my cell phone sporadically for a while now. Every few weeks/months, it will start calling my phone, usually 10-20 times in a row, with 1-2 sessions in a day, for a few days in a row. The time of day seemed random, usually during business hours but also at odd times. Once, it did this after 1am. I was not happy.

When I pick up the phone, all I hear is a beep. It beeps a single tone about once every 2-3 seconds, indefinitely. If I don't answer, it leaves the beeps as a voice mail, so I pretty much have to answer and hang up to get it to NOT leave me messages.

I didn't realize how long this had been going on until I checked my LJ tags. The first time it happened was almost 2 years ago. See? I chronicled that exciting day in this entry. It was June 2008.

I called T-Mobile, and was told they can't do anything, because the caller ID is blocked so it comes through as UNKNOWN all the time. Apparently T-Mobile is one of the cell phone providers who isn't technologically advanced enough to do block unknown numbers, no matter how badly a customer wants it. Get with the times, T-Mobile, this is 2010 and you should be able to do such a simple thing.

Once it did not come through as unknown, so I sent a fax to the number on the caller ID saying "stop faxing my cell phone!" but it didn't stop the faxes. I submitted the fax number to the FCC, even, and it didn't stop the faxes.

Today, the calls were coming in at an insane rate. I'd pick-up-and-hang-up, and before I could even set the phone down, it would be ringing again. I literally lost count of how many times the fax machine called me. Frustrated, I called T-Mobile, not expecting them to be able to do anything but looking forward to complaining loudly.

As expected, the girl on the other end of the line couldn't block Unknown Number calls, but she DID help me change my voice mail number so calls go to a fax machine instead of voice mail. I think it's because her name was also Jessica, so she was automatically awesome. I plugged in the number for the fax machine in our office, and waited. After a while, it worked and a fax came through!

Guess what it was. Guess. Keep in mind that this has been happening for almost 2 years. Keep in mind that the calls have come at all kinds of odd hours. Then guess.

....it was from a freaking insurance company, to a doctor's office. That's right. From one office to another. And no one in either office thought to wonder why all of the faxes from Company A weren't getting to Doctor B. For two years. Yeah....

I called the "From" phone number, and talked to the lady, and asked her to please for the love of all things good in the world stop sending faxes to my cell phone. She asked for the case number on the fax I got, and I guess only changed the fax number for that case (and not the master file for the doctor's office) because I kept getting fax calls even after that. They stopped mid-afternoon, but I don't trust it- if tomorrow is 100% silent, I'll maybe start to believe it's done.

I looked up the doctor's office and called them, and asked for the contact name on the fax. "Yeah, she handles Company A, but she only works Mondays and Wednesdays," was the only answer I got. I explained that Company A had my cell phone number on record as their fax number, and asked if they had been missing faxes, and suggested that maybe that would be a reason why. "We don't have any problems getting faxes." I wanted to point out that I didn't ask if they had problems with ALL incoming faxes, but since the lady cleared didn't care at all about anyone, I just decided to call back Monday and talk to the contact on the fax directly.

So yeah, thanks to incompetence at the insurance company office and seemingly rampant apathy at the doctor's office, I've been getting fax calls for almost two years. I'm about *thisclose* to flying to New York and wreaking some havoc.

So the first Daring Cooks challenge was posted in the secret forum this weekend, and ohhhhhhh man it's exciting. I can't tell you what it is until May 14, because it's SOOPER SEKRIT, but I CAN say that it's way cool and totally blows my mind. I'm so glad I joined this contest. Now I must research! This will definitely be a challenge, but it will be such a fun challenge, and hopefully a tasty challenge.

Today I'm going to hit up the T-mobile Store to see if they can help fix my phone, because T-Mobile's website sucks. I mean, seriously, when I click on "phone support" I shouldn't have to browse through 200 topics 10 at a time until I find the right one. How about some categorization? And of course the search function does nothing but throw errors. Oh, and look, I can't look at my bill online because "online billing is currently unavailable." I can send them a text to check my balance, but if I need any further information then oops! Too bad! This is totally lame. If you're going to offer paperless billing to your customers, at least make the electronic version available consistently, geez. I hate their website so much. I love the service, I love my plan, and I've not had any problems with reception or anything... but I hate their website. I want to have some Words with whoever is in charge of it.

So I'm off to do battle with the T-Mobile store. Here's hoping I can replicate the problem in front of a rep so it can be fixed! And then after that I'm going to come home and play a game a coworker lent me two week ago that I still haven't even installed. Oops!

Edit to add: That wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. The rep did the thing where they turn it off, take out the battery, put it back, and turn it back on, then told me that if that doesn't help over the next few days, to call and have it replaced for free. She couldn't do it in the store because they don't have mine in stock, but she did make a note in my account that it was not damaged or anything so that when I do call it will go smoother. Contrast this with AT&T, where you are treated suspiciously if you have problems with your phone. Man, I am glad I switched to T-Mobile. Unfortunately, my phone still seems to not like buttons, so I'll probably have to do the exchange but at least it's not a nightmare or accusing looks like with AT&T.

First, a meme. I thought think this one is kind of interesting )

Last night I was zonked by 9, and at some point Megan called me. I remember hearing the phone ringing, and I remember saying "MEH" to the phone. She left a message, and I slept on. But! My phone likes to remind me that I have messages periodically, so it beeped at me throughout the night. I guess it woke me up a few times, because I have the memories of getting up and going over to my alarm clock to hit snooze, and then being very confused by the lack of alarm. This happened a couple times. On the plus side, when my alarm went off for real, I ended up hitting snooze fewer times than normal, because part of my brain thought I'd already hit snooze a couple times. Go, brain!

Someone buy me this. I need it. For star parties, for my porch, for NaNoWriMo writing in parks... It is necessary. Clearly.

Speaking of NaNoWriMo! I have a big post brewing on that very topic. It is currently about half finished, waiting patiently in a private post for me to get around to finishing it. I should do that tonight.

I had sushi today. I'd been craving it since Sunday, when I got an ad in the mail that included pictures of sushi at a local Japanese place that finally reopened. Oh man. When you are craving something, and you finally get it? Bliss, lemme tell ya.

Oh, and my phone's battery died today (while I was composing a text to [livejournal.com profile] wistfulmaid). I would just like to say that on the day that a cell phone manufacturer makes a phone that doesn't use more energy to say "OMG LOW BATTERY AAAHHHH" every three seconds, I will give that manufacturer three firstborn children. And a handful of souls. I mean, seriously? With all the beeping, lighting up, and vibrating that phones do when they are low on juice, they could probably last days longer if they'd just shut up about it. Why can't it pop up a message ONCE, and then shut up once the user acknowledges the message? Oh, that's right, because that would make sense.

Also, I should probably get a real phone charger to replace the one Hawking chewed through. I'm currently using my USB cord to charge it, which is inconvenient because I can't do anything with the phone while it's charging. No talking, no texting, no nuffin'. So I put it off for days, and then my phone dies while I'm texting. I blame the media. And video games.

Going back to the topic of NaNoWriMo, I need an idea. You see, I've been playing with yWriter (I'm actually starting to poke at and sort-of edit Syrup!), and while it is a cool program, I can't really dig into it unless I'm writing something new. Plugging in a pre-existing book is okay, but kind of meh. So I'm thinking I'll use it for NaNoWriMo, for two reasons: 1) I want to see if I can do a novel without flying by the seat of my pants, and 2) I want to play with this program. My plan is to use yWriter to set up an outline, and figure out all the scenes, then transfer the scene descriptions to index cards for portableness. Then when I'm off writing with others, or just over there on my couch, I can pick an index card and write that scene, then plug it into yWriter when I feel like it. I'll leave plenty of room for improvisation, of course, because I don't think I could completely give up the madness that NaNo writing can bring (a certain fishy dream sequence comes to mind). But, overall, I'd like to have the thing plotted out.

The problem with this, though, is that I have no idea how to plot out a novel. I'm so used to my highly organic writing style that planning is completely foreign to me. Like Greek, or Slovakian. I think that if I had a starting idea I could pull something together, but I don't know what I want to write. Maybe an "ensemble going after a MacGuffin" novel would be fun, a la "Rat Race". Who knows. WHAT SAY YOU, LIVEJOURNAL?

I have discovered a new noise to make to annoy my cats. It's kind of like an extended "vvvv" sound. It is amazing.

Every night, when I get into bed, Hawking tries very hard to get into my pants. No, really. She tries to crawl up the leg of my pajama pants. Unfortunately, my leg gets in the way, so she only gets her head in the pants leg before giving up and making pathetic "woe is me" noises. Then I roll over on my back so she can sleep on my chest/throat because I am a sucker.

I talk about my cats far too much. I can't help it! They are endlessly amusing creatures. Except when Hawking is destroying wires (She did it again today! Good thing I had a spare set of computer speakers) or unplugging things. That's not so much amusing as incredibly frustrating. CHEW ON THE CATNIP TOYS, KITTEH, OR I LOCK YOU IN A TINY BOX FOR A YEAR.

By the way, I think it was my breakfast that had me all queasy. I tried a crockpot breakfast recipe, and while it tasted good, I've noticed that just thinking about it makes me feel nauseated. I don't think I'll be having the leftovers again tomorrow.

Also! I might be murdered in my sleep by robots! They are clearly out to get me. I've gotten no less than SEVEN calls from an unidentified phone number, and each time it only beeped at me when I answered. I decoded the super secret message and it said "DIE, HUMAN, DIE". Trufax!

Okay, not really. But I did get 7 weird beepy phone calls. I eventually just started making beeping noises back at the killer robots on the other end of the line.

So much capslock in this post. I'm so tired and woooo. Bed time.

Man, I has an AWESOME phone.

Also, I ended up switching to T-Mobile, because YAY CHEAPER and yeah. YAY PHONE.

I kept the phone out on my desk all afternoon just so I could look at it. It's so shiny! And pretty! I've never had a particularly spiffy phone before, so this is very exciting.


PUNCH LINE: I went to dinner with [livejournal.com profile] drninja and his lady, and when I got home I found that Hawking had pulled my phone charger out of the bag and chewed through it. She is so disowned.


But now! To load up Boss of Me as my ringtone when my boss calls.

It's amazing how much I miss having a phone when I don't have one. Especially considering the fact that one month I used a total of 52 minutes.

(I have been looking at old bills to get a feel for what I usually use. 300 minutes is way more than plenty, but I need lots more texts.)

((Also, I am making a very ill-advised decision re: the phone I want. I'm sick of crummy cheap phones that suck. I'm getting a nice one, dagnabbit, that does things, and doesn't take forever in the doing))

IN OTHER NEWS: Tonight I cooked fish! I bought frozen tilapia fillets, and I baked them with lemon juice and garlic, and had them with lemon garlic ramen (a sort of made-up recipe). I'm very proud of myself. Now let's just hope I don't die!I have had exactly zero experience cooking not-pre-cooked fish before so I'm hoping there wasn't some crucial step that I missed, like standing on my head while singing songs from The Sound Of Music.

The phone, it is ded.

I was really hoping it would last longer, but I'm not surprised given that it was beeping it's "OMG I'M DYING" beep yesterday. Ah well.

I still don't understand why phone use up more energy by beeping and lighting up when they are running low on juice. Why don't they go into conservation mode? Or just, I don't know, warn you once and then shut up? It's so stupid. So stupid, in fact, that I know I rant about it every time my phone starts dying.

I still don't understand why phone use up more energy by beeping and lighting up when they are running low on juice. Why don't they go into conservation mode? Or just, I don't know, warn you once and then shut up? It's so stupid. So stupid, in fact, that I know I rant about it every time my phone starts dying.

Oops.

I left my phone at work, so if you try to call between now and tomorrow morning, rest assured that I'm not ignoring you out of spite.




This time.

I just woke up about half an hour ago after sleeping for about 14 hours. I fell asleep on my couch for about 2 hours, woke up at about 8:30pm and went to bed. Woke up at about 8:30am, mostly because I really really had to go to the bathroom.

Of course, now I'm stiff, sore, and headachey, thanks to my crappy craptastic bed. But well-rested, for the first time in what seems like a month! I've taken some ibuprofen for the soreness and headacheness, and I'm going to shower to see if I can't unstiffen some muscles. Then I should probably eat, because I fell asleep before I ate dinner last night. Oops. Luckily my body hasn't realized this yet, but once it does I'm in trouble.

Oh, also, replacement phone came in the mail yesterday. That whole situation was weird, getting that phone. AT&T is weird. But whatever, I have a phone that hopefully works better. Yesterday it (the old one) was being really super flaky- it wouldn't receive texts until way later, if it received them at all, and didn't want to make phone calls. Bah. So, uh, if I ignored a text/call, it wasn't me, it was my phone.

edit: I slept again from about 10am to 1pm. So I have spent 17 of the last 24 hours sleeping. Dang.
