Well, this hasn't been the most boring afternoon of my career at the Evil Banking Neighbor, but it probably qualifies for the top ten. Fortunately, the weekend ought to compensate. First of all, my truck is ready! A day early!
*does the dance of happiness*
*sits down to avoid scaring fellow workers*
This allows me to stop worrying about how I'm going to get home from drunkenphlower
's birthday celebration tonight, which will involve sushi at the Ichiban and then Apples to Apples or something equally entertaining at the soon to be former residence of the birthday lady. Brief stop for groceries on the way home, and then a fairly early bedtime in preparation for a Saturday full of packing and long-overdue trashing of dead & useless things, assuming I can keep my head out of The Operational Art of War
. I'm in the early stages of the Spanish Civil War scenario, so that might be a little tough. ^_^
Also on Saturday, I need to run out and apply for my new apartment. No, I haven't done that yet, but I don't expect any problems.
There's nothing on the calendar for Sunday, either, which means I can spend more time taping up boxes full of books, CDs, DVDs, wargames, and other stuff. I only have this weekend and next to get packing done, since the weekend of the 19th-21st is Diversicon, and the moving party is on the 27th. Fortunately, I don't actually have all that much stuff loose - most of it can be pulled out of the dressers and stuffed right into boxes. I guess some of my old tactical habits have reasserted themselves after all. ^_^
And with that summation, I need to start closing up here so I can run off and catch a bus out to Bloomington so I can get the truck out of hock. Yay for healed wheels!
Oh yeah - did I mention that phoenixalpha
got hired? w00t! Way to go, hija mia
