11:38 pm - How About the Bureau of Magic and Spell Casting?
If you have Comcast, you are paying too much! Well, we all know that is generally a given, but Comcast appears to be in a particularly giving mood these days: I initiated a LiveChat to state that I was considering switching to AT&T or Astound and ask whether they had any special offers for existing customers, and "Richard" gave me a sweet deal that practically halves my cable/Internet bill for the next six months. I didn't have to push or anything! I mean, I pushed in case it helped, but it seemed like Comcast just had these awesome offers just lying around and THEY DON'T TELL YOU ABOUT THEM. truejavachik got her bill down by sixty percent plus added HBO and Showtime.

I just saved myself $435 by being mildly assertive. FOLLOW MY EXAMPLE.

My next move is possibly asking my landlord for an I've Been a Good Tenant for Three Years discount, since I just realized that he's not raising my rent this year. He always raises it the maximum amount, which is the increase in the CPI, which has been 3.3% the last three years...but this year, it's 0.7%! That's not even worth bothering with the paperwork, which he has not presented to me, and he's presented it much earlier the last two years since he has to give thirty days notice.

Unrelatedly, I watched the Psych pilot tonight, and, wow, it's so weird! Everything looks different, and it's not as snappy and polished as it's become over the years. There's some sort of Not!Jules who's slightly pretty and blonde but dull. And now I understand how the whole thing came together, although I still don't quite grasp why Shawn has to pretend to be a psychic as opposed to someone who's just really observant and exactly how much the police department buys into his schtick.

Relatedly, tonight's episode had its moments, but neither this week's nor last week's has been as funny as the premiere. Which Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly gave a C! A C! He doesn't appear to like or get the show at all. Lighten the fuck up, Ken!

Also, is it just me, or is Vick surprisingly pretty this season?

A friend just did the same thing with her cable here (BrightHouse) so I suspect it's actually true of most companies. They aren't gonna advertise it because why not bilk those customers who won't call but, yeah, they give you the deals if you just ASK about them. I'm calling my company and inquiring too but after Weeds ends and I can ditch HBO and Sho.

Vick is always pretty!

I haven't really found her that pretty before! Maybe it's her hair? Does she have new hair?
