By now you know all about my dungeon and the perks — or lack thereof — that come with it.
Well, there have been some big changes this week.
My fourteen-year old nephew stayed with us the first part of this week so my dad had him doing all kinds of things around the house. (That was the arrangement. He made money by helping my dad. We aren’t slave drivers here.) One of the first things on the list was helping him install a cell phone booster.
That’s right. I now get signal in the basement! And the rest of the house!
My dad tested it by calling me on his cell from the basement, but I’ve yet to make an actual call from down there. I’m just so used to communicating with people with other devices that I’ve stopped talking on the phone as often. But the fact that I can text FROM THE COUCH and NOT FROM INSIDE THE TEENY LITTLE WINDOW is huge.
Later that same night (can you believe there’s more?) I mentioned that my DVD player was broken, but I was pretty sure I knew how it needed to be fixed (I just hadn’t gotten around to trying). Something fell on it while it was in storage and the casing was dented, so I asked my nephew to pop off the top, hammer it out, and see if it’d work.
And it did!
This may not sound exciting, but this is a five-disc player that also has radio and an MP3 jack (not that I have an MP3 player to use it with) AND it has surround sound.
Aww yeah, my dungeon is now tricked out.
Have you had any cool gadgets come into your life recently?
