How could I forget to share my good fortune? By next Friday, I will have restored my link to the outside world (read: Comedy Central and CNN). A lovely woman named Derlene called me on behalf of Comcast cable last night and offered me a deal I could not refuse. Standard cable for $10 a month. $10 a month! For six months. With free installation! I am so damn good at manipulating the cable company. I do this all the time. Cancel, re-start, call back and ask for a better deal when the introductory one stops, threaten to cancel, switch to new, better deal, etc. But this is by far the best I have ever gotten. Woo hoo!
