In further technical torture, I am up at my parents' place now (they are gone) and, while trying and failing to turn on the DVD player (I mean, it was on; I couldn't get the TV to show what it was playing), I managed to set the TV so it cannot be turned off. I'm serious! There are three confusing remote controls, and the power switch on all three will not turn off the TV. It's not the batteries, because all three will do other things... just not turn it off. It has no switch to manually turn it off, either. I will just have to leave it on till they return.

Thank God the mute button works.

I am posting here because my stupid smoke detector battery ran down, and it is emitting 200-decibel chirps, which woke me up at 4:45 AM. Only the landlord can a) reach it, b) has the batteries. He is, of course, not awake yet. It is excruciating even with earplugs.

Guess who has, not one, but two (2) important meetings today?

I think the local cafe opens at 7:00 AM. Two more hours of this!

ETA: It has now stopped. After I brewed and drank a pot of coffee. Goddammit.

Is anyone in LA watching Lost tonight? I was supposed to watch it at a friend's house, but she just called in sick-- just in time for my cable reception to go out! I can't get a technician in till tomorrow morning. Is anyone here planning to watch it and wouldn't mind a guest?

If you hate the series, this is not the time to tell me so.
