My girl is home! YAY! She had a great time, as usu­al. sam­bear got some real­ly good shots of her dur­ing the horse show before his cam­era bat­ter­ies ran out.

Tomor­row today is going to be busy.

A TV crew from one of the major news shows is sup­posed to do a shoot here begin­ning at 5:30 pm. The sto­ry is about cyber­stalk­ing, of course. 

I have no idea when the clip will air, but since it’s a time-sen­si­tive issue it prob­a­bly won’t be long. I’ll let y’all know when I find out.

(I’m not being more spe­cif­ic because I’m sure Dick Cow­ard checks this from time to time, and I don’t want to sub­ject who­ev­er answers the phone at the news show’s office to be sub­ject­ed to his stu­pid phone calls try­ing to stop the shoot or the air­ing of the story.)

The exter­mi­na­tor is com­ing around 10 or 11. We got a great deal on a ter­mite bond with a year’s gen­er­al ser­vice. We’ve sprayed for bugs our­selves, sev­er­al times, but 1) we can’t seem to get rid of all the spi­ders; 2) hav­ing a dog going in and out means she brings in hitch­hik­ing par­a­sites; 3) the maid ser­vice killed a scor­pi­on in here this week! So we’ll let some­one else be respon­si­ble for it, and just call them out as often as it takes to keep out the pests. 

Besides, I want the attic and crawl space sprayed, and don’t want to ask any­body in the fam­i­ly to do it.

Com­cast is sup­posed to have an installer here at about the same time to add anoth­er jack in the guest room. Since we’ll be putting a sleep­er sofa in there instead of a nor­mal bed, we decid­ed to make that some­thing of a den for use when the liv­ing room is occu­pied. The PS2 will prob­a­bly go with the TV in there.

I have a med­ical appoint­ment tomor­row after­noon, at an office that always runs very late. We nor­mal­ly block out 3–4 hours for each vis­it, although the actu­al time spent with a health provider is nev­er more than 15 min­utes. If they run crazy late this time, I’ll just have to leave. I don’t want to be all fraz­zled going into the interview.

No mat­ter how clean the house is, there’s always a need for “pick­ing up” before guests arrive. At least that’s all we’ll need to do.

Oh crap. I just real­ized that I have absolute­ly no idea what I’m going to wear. Ugh.

I don’t mind talk­ing to these peo­ple as much as they like. I just have to try not to think about the whole “on cam­era” part.
