Global warming, where are you when I need you?

Actually, I can't whine too loudly. I got up this morning and discovered that Overstock.com had refunded me the money I paid them for the Rio Carbon, which UPS will be delivering to the office on Monday - since they've already tried to drop it off here twice and nobody's been around to sign for it. So I didn't have to rob any banks or do anything else stupid to make rent, which was good, but still...WTF?

Despite temperatures in the single digits, the Sportage started right up this morning and carried me to the Richfield Wells Fargo, which couldn't have been busier if they were handing out free sinkers & coffee. There I purchased a money order to pay rent, after which I went down to Chipotle and lunched on a burrito, discussed the events of the week with stuckintraffik, and shortly thereafter dropped by Chez Ganann and hung out. Lauren whipped me throughly at Carcassonne after I managed to make the hotseat game of Civilization IV we were playing with Kale blow up. AD drama came and went throughout the day and into the evening, when we kicked back with pizza and watched Blazing Saddles.

Then it was time to come home, take drugs, catch up with mail and LJ, and go to bed, for Sunday is another day.
