No call today from the VA about tomorrow's appointment, but no matter; I'll pack a bag and my netbook, trundle on down there and see what happens. Worst case, I'm downtown at the VA for a few hours until the traffic clears up.
Took the gift card from yesterday's focus group down to B&N, picked up copies of Sandy Mitchell's The Emperor's Finest and David Drake's In the Stormy Red Sky , which left me with $7 and change on the card. Didn't see anything else there that I wanted to spend actual money on (even another $2-3) although the omnibus reprint of C.J. Cherryh's The Faded Sun Trilogy was mighty tempting.
The school rejected my second appeal for financial aid, so I guess I'll beat my head on that particular wall again tomorrow. Once more to Woodbridge, with a pocket full of quarters...
Time to get something for dinner.
