broadband, yowzers

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Today I have broadband Internet at home. I can’t decide which is more life-changing, brushing up against Katarina Witt or this.
The cable guy doing the install overheard me talking to my boss about a story that’ll be on the front page tomorrow. “Yeah, I think we should just say it’s $150 million and leave it at that,” I said. “It could be closer to $200 million, but let’s be safe and call it $150 million.” As soon as I hung up, the cable guy asked, “Excuse me, but what line of business are you in, exactly?” I had evidently sounded like a big dealmaker.
A few photos from SLC may be making their way onto this site this evening, if I judge them non-humiliating enough.
