trying to book the same things

I'm sitting here with my cellphone plugged into my laptop via usb to keep my battery charged, holding it up in the air to keep the cats from walking on it and disconnecting me, jumping at the pause everytime the hold music changes.

What a sight I must be!!

Going off-topic, but...

Not the hold time, but definitely with regards to circuits are busy, fast/no answer signals, et cetera. I work for what's primarily an inside sales orgnaization, and our phone system bears pretty much no resemblance to home service. It's mostly internet-based, so we bypass most of the local infrastructure that's most likely the cause of everyone's grief in getting a call completed.

Given that I'm not in sales, that I use my phone maybe three times a month, yet spent many painful hours assisting in the system's installation, I'm pretty satisfied that this is the once-a-year dividend I get from it.

I just got off the phone a few minutes ago. The computer was allowing my agent to SEE the stuff and not book at first. She finally was able to put my stuff in the "cart" and book it.

I have:

10/16 Italian beer pairing at Via Napoli
10/17 Italian regional wine luncheon
10/19 Mexican tequila lunch
