Colour me confused

But first:


So JM will be singing and talking about his debut album in Coventry's Guildhall on April 25th. I'm sure I'll have better things to do, attend a CoRo show, e.g. -- they're going to be touring the UK from April 21st-May 2nd, I hear.

Anyway, I received a letter from my ADSL-provider, telling me they are unable to provide ADSL to my home. They are very sorry to disappoint me, but all their tests have shown that it can't be done. They can't be specific as to the cause, but they have given me the following to choose from:

* I have already signed up for ADSL with another provider;
* I have a group telephone number (whatever that may be);
* I have an ISDN rather than an analog telephone connection.

Since I knew I hadn't been in touch with any other provider, I contacted my telephone company and had them check into the last two possibilities. And they came back and told me what I already suspected: I have neither the one nor the other.

Meanwhile, I've been surfing the web to my heart's content. And now I'm in a quandary: should I let sleeping dogs lie, and continue to surf without being asked to pay a penny; or tell them that as far as I can see, my Internet connection's working fine, and run the risk of them going "oh, but it shouldn't be!", flip a switch and cut me off from the rest of the world?
I think I'll sleep on that decision for a while...

And thank the Lord! -- today I found out that I finally fit into last year's jeans again!

How odd.

Yes, very. I've been going about my business with a question mark writ large upon my face all day long.

That must have got some comments.

You'd think so, wouldn't you? But no, we're Dutch; we don't notice these things...:-D

Sounds to me like someone switched you on, but didn't make a note of the fact. Now, when they checked whether you could get ADSL, they've found you can't, but don't realise that's because they've already switched you on. Does that make sense?
Dec. 6th, 2004 10:57 am (UTC)
Does that make sense?

Hee. You know, in some weird way, it does. Now that I think about it, it sounds like the most logical explanation. Thanks for that; it's been driving me batty all day!

At £75 a ticket I won't be going to Coventry either. I'm sure the Liverpool gig will be fine

Are you seeing CoRo or James at Liverpool?
Dec. 6th, 2004 11:27 am (UTC)
Well, I'm definitely seeing CoRo at The Cavern Club, but as to James...I think I'll see him in London with bogwitch and calove.
Dec. 6th, 2004 11:29 am (UTC)
Ah, ok

Guess we'll be like ships passing in the night then :(
Dec. 6th, 2004 11:34 am (UTC)
Yes, it's too bad; but it really works out better for me that way. I'm sure we'll meet again some other time!
Dec. 6th, 2004 11:35 am (UTC)
I'm sure we will. I don't intend to stop stalking Adam or James any time soon *g*
Dec. 6th, 2004 11:38 am (UTC)
They've yet to announce all their dates in the UK, but seeing as how CoRo are going to be over here for two weeks or almost, you may even get to see Adam at a place near you sooner than you think! Fingers crossed, eh?
Dec. 6th, 2004 11:41 am (UTC)
Yup! *crosses fingers*
Dec. 6th, 2004 11:45 am (UTC)
Is there a Newsletter or some way I can be e mailed when CoRo add dates to their tours? How do you find out so quickly what's going on?
Dec. 6th, 2004 12:37 pm (UTC)
I usually find out through their website, which is updated regularly, and through the forum there. Matt, Adam's brother and their tour manager, never fail sto keep us fans updated. I haven't found out about any official newsletter yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if one does exist...
