I can't get the Sirius Stiletto 100 to work. I spoke with five customer service people..Here is the breakdown..

1.) First person seemed frazzled and said "I don't know how to fix your problem"
2.) Put me on hold for 10 minutes before even asking my name or Sirius # (hang up)
3.) Put on hold for 5 minutes, came back but didn't know how to fix it
4.) Said he didn't know how to fix it. period.
5.) Spoke with this person for a half hour. This person actually tried to resolve my problem by sending a test signal which I never received. Was told to go outside. Still nothing. I give this person some credit. At least they tried. I explained that the issue was that I would get one signal strength bar, but it wouldn't work in two different states both NJ and NYC and the outer boroughs. suburban and city. Nothing. Fading in and out...so who knows...

or you could hope that i'm someone who simply appreciates and recognizes creative talent like yours. Now about that glass...is it half full or half empty?

that glass can create music depending on the amount of water.

*blush* thanks for the comment.

hmmm, first i thought about making music by gently moving my finger around the rim of the glass and creating a sound. Then i thought i about tapping the glass with something to make it ring. what were you thinking?

you could have filled the glass with anything, you picked water

I thought of the rim of the glass and yes water..I guess that would be a typical answer right?

i am going for the water but for some oddball reason cranberry juice popped in my head.. ¿¿¿

Could water be spontaneous, cranberry juice instinctive. i imagine cranberry juice worked better. which finger to use, circling the glass rim finding the perfect pressure and pace, a sound which in itself is seductive, meditative, spiritual in a way.

do you pray?

Serendipity...I was browsing and came across your site. Like you, a creative person. We have never met, except here. I am intriqued by message streams. It's that simple and complex .

Sounds like you worked out the Sirius bug!

Yeah message streams are fun..its like getting a little present each time..the Sirius is in need of a more powerful satellite..maybe they could put one in my backyard heheh..

hey you are like my top reader lol!
what I find most funny is at the bottom of the page it says "0 Readers" by Feedburner lol!

Since Feedburner has not detected me that makes me 'stealth-o-mouse'. or does it mean we really don't exist!!!!

By the looks of your blog photo you must have some outer-space connections, they should get you a satellite.

yeah I think maybe these antennae are defunkt..hehe..

you are an invisi-mouse..my question is..when they test little mice..what happens to them?..do they just die off..maybe they might just keep one for a pet perhaps..(i am trying to think positive)

do you have a blog? or have any type of stuff online?

Bloggless & Stuffless right now.

research causes cancer in mice. i like your 'adopt-a-testmouse' idea.

experience, process, reveal, share, trust, rarely content

"experience, process, reveal, share, trust, rarely content"

is that a description of yourself? sounds like a good plan to me..

there could be a campaign "adopt a test mouse"..but then again if the mouse was radioactive or passed away it would be heartbreaking.

how does my work inspire you?
