day called for lack of motivation

So, yeah. The last moving consultant showed up about an hour late this morning, guesstimated the weight of all my books & videos & crap about half a ton higher than the others (except the guy who phoned it in and thereby lost my bidness) and left me with a helpful folder of information and a little tin of mints. Awww.

Sent off applications to PG County this morning. They have vacancies in History, English, and Spanish, so I figure I have a good shot. They're pretty desperate for teachers, by all accounts, but I'm not taking anything for granted. One thing I do need to do is go out and pick up a printer to replace the dead LaserJet (my kingdom for a roller!) and the dead Samsung that actually belongs to Detour. This is because a number of school districts have apparently not figured out that it would be a lot faster and easier for applicants if they could submit their crap over the web instead of having to print it out and mail it in...on the other hand, they probably expect most of their applicants to be local and not from halfway across the country.

It's supposed to be really nasty hot today, up to 95. I'm not looking forward to going out later for drugs, bread, milk and the aforementioned printer, but it's got to be done.

So, how about that Harry Potter?

I thought it was all right, myself. Spent most of the morning and afternoon reading it while gatecamping with the Euros...

It's a good book, and it'll be interesting to see what (if anything) JK Rowling decides to write next.
