My new design is up! Judi from Doodlebug Designs worked her magic again.
And if you'll please look up at the top of the page, you'll see that I'm using my new domain as well! I'm now officially Laural Out Loud!
The only problem is a Feedburner issue. Drat Feedburner's help desk. I switched my original feed address to my new one just like it told me to, and this morning I woke up to a big fat ZERO. So I'm trying to figure out what that's all about.
In the meantime, let me tell you about our cell phone bill.
Yesterday I had to pay $213 for the month of October. Yep, $213. Are you having a heart attack like I did? I was hyperventilating a bit as I looked through the phone bill to try and see what had happened. We always had rollover minutes up the wazoo, and never ever went over.
The culprit, it appears, was Gilberto. And how exactly does a guy use up 2000 daytime minutes (not to mention all the other free weekend and nighttime minutes)? Especially one that doesn't really like to talk on the phone?
The answer is World of Warcraft.
After calling Gilberto, I found out that he and his cousin, who just moved to Vegas, have been calling each other and leaving their phones on the entire time they play World of Warcraft, just in case they have something to say to each other. This usually happens at night, about an hour before I go to bed (that's when I catch up on T.V. It's really the perfect set-up). And JUST BEFORE our free nighttime minutes kick in.
On our plan, any call that's made during the day uses daytime minutes for the entire call, even if it continues into the nighttime.
The breakdown is alarming. 7 nights a week. Three hours a night (he stays up later than me). 21 hours time 60 minutes is 1260 minutes per week. And that totals a whopping 5040 minutes per month!
So all in all, we actually got off easy! It looks like the majority of those calls were made right after our nighttime minutes started. Can you imagine a bill for over 5000 daytime minutes?
When I told my mom, she laughed and said that when she gets home from work around midnight, Gilberto always has his cell phone on the desk, turned on speaker, chatting away with his cousin. Although, it's more his cousing chatting and Gilberto grunting in affirmation every once in a while.
Sometimes my husband and his cousin come up with the most idiotic schemes.
Though it kind of reminds me of last week's The Office, where Jim and Pam had their really tiny headsets on the whole day. THAT was brilliant. But they must have a really great daytime minutes plan.
