I have a story to tell, but first, pictures:
(I somehow got these in between "Lens Error" messages on my camera)
May I introduce the newest tenant of the Kitchen Fish tank?
This is George:
George is a dwarf puffer fish.
He likes pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. He's not into yoga...he is into champagne.
Today after school, Isabelle was quietly working on something. I asked her what she was doing, and she said to wait a minute. When she turned around, I saw what she had done:
See? No matter how CRAZY your kids make you, they end up doing stuff like this and you forget all the bad stuff.
All the birds were fluffed up...we had a few inches of snow and ice yesterday and the temperature this morning was about 20. I just love song sparrows. They are so happy-looking.
I smeared some warm Zick Dough on the crabapple tree to "hide" it from the blankety-blank starlings, and this female cardinal pondered over it for a few minutes while I watched. She finally s t r e t c h e d her neck out and tried it.
Now, my story:
A few days ago, I got an interesting email. This person said she was with a high-level service department at Best Buy and saw my blog post about my oh-so-lovely Geek experience.
No freakin' way. I didn't even mention Best Buy...but I did say "Geek Squad". Isn't that unreal?
I sent it to Geoff and he said that it is reasonable that they would be searching for people who are talking about them. It was LEGIT.
See, you really need to watch what you say on the internets, huh?
She is probably reading this right now. Hi, S!
Anyway, we went back and forth...me saying what I wanted and her telling me what she could offer. So, the final result will be me taking the camera back, they will try to fix it again, and they will do it quickly. I will also get a nice big gift card from Best Buy for my trouble. And if it is wrong, AGAIN, I will be getting a new camera, according to their "Lemon" policy.
So the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
