I'm so excited about my new toy - a Toshiba P100, with a 17 inch screen! This takes care of my birthday/anniversary present. Jerry actually wanted me to buy myself a new fall coat, but I don't care about clothes.
I have to leave it plugged in for the first 3 days, to charge up the battery properly, but after that I will be wandering around the house continuously, with my new baby cradled in my arms.
In the meanwhile, I have a lot of music to load up and a pile of files to transfer, and I still have to figure out how to set up my email.
This is perfect timing for the planned assault on Office Depot. Yes, just when you thought it was safe to go back into the store, I am pleased to announce I will be escalating action against that company, as I think I have shown considerable patience in waiting for them to make things right with me. The last message I left with the regional manager today was that I would wait until Monday to hear back from him (he phoned me back on September 2, and since then, not a word from anyone at the company) and at that point I will be forced to take accelerated action, starting with senior management at Office Depot, notification of their policy to the Senior Manager of Materials Management at the University of Calgary, plus a concentrated contacting of the media, including CBC television, which is launching a program called Underdogs. Underdogs will be hosted by Marketplace's Wendy Mesley, and the producers are calling for people to contribute their stories of their battles with companies about products or service.
Is that perfect timing or what?
Oh. It's on!
