Cutout of NPL's electricity bill statement

Cutout of NPL’s electricity bill statement

Okay here we are at midweek, early on Wednesday.

I’ll just jot down a few to dos that have to be accomplished over the balance of the week:

swivel chair1. The office door situation has to be resolved.  More on that delightful saga in a future post.

2. Second custom platform is needed for the second thread tower. Have to find out what’s up with George the installer as I have not heard from him in a few days. [Note: Pedestals being installed tomorrow; custom shelf/rod canvas display units may be ready by Sat.]

3. Still haven’t ordered the cork board for the wall area behind the counter.

4, Need to keep tabs on why AT&T is finding it so difficult to use the correct billing address for my smartphone.  This will be the subject of yet another amusing but head scratching post in the near future.

5, The tech team needs to stop playing useless computer games and get motivated enough to finish assembling the desk, not to mention putting together the swivel chair and file cabinet.

This may complete the application process.

Normally they would want a copy of the Business License I need to operate the premises on an open-to-the-public basis, but with all these various delays, the fire marshal has yet to set foot in Needlepoint Land.

Apparently a utility bill will do, though.

I wouldn’t bet the house on a credit card terminal arriving before July 4th.

After all, it does say somewhere in the fine print of the 800 page application process (which cost me $22 at Office Depot to fax back to them) that the underwriter may have “additional questions.”

Maybe they want to know what size clothes I wear next.

Well, that’s it for now.

No time to watch the grass grow, although I do tremendously enjoy writing these often snarky little posts.

In fact, they are part of what makes this jumping through these enough-already hoops so tremendously worthwhile!
