But I'm not. There's a whole laundry list of Bad Shit Happening.

My washer and dryer set is leaking water during the spin cycle and screeching to a halt when drying. So I have to get a new one.

My refrigerator is also leaving a little puddle of water on the floor, so I likewise have to get a new one. Unlike the washer/dryer set, it's covered by the home insurance thingy I signed up with when I closed on the condo. The bad news is, it has to be replaced. The good news is, they've just gotten me a new fridge. They'll be delivering it next week. The bad news is, the service doesn't cover disposal of the previous fridge. So I have to pony up about a hundred bucks to get somebody to make the old fridge go away.

Oh, and my health insurance is gafarked because they have my birthday wrong in the system. As flattered as I am to be mistaken for someone seven years younger, it's going to take all kinds of paperwork to correct the error.

Did I leave anything out? But, it's weird, I'm not nearly as stressed out about it as I could be. Because I realize that the amount of energy put into worrying about things does not count as effort expended toward solving the problem.

At any rate, not a hell of a lot's going to be done until DragonCon blows over. I'm pretty much resigned to that.

So if anybody has any spare pozzies around that they're not using for anything important, please feel free to send them my way to smooth out the rough patches I've been tripping over lately. Thanks.

Today I took pleasure in Nick Drake on the headphones as I watched the rain fall past the window.

Today I learned how to file a Writ of Possession when the copy of the contract has gone severely missing.

I really like how you sum up your day into "took pleasure in" and "learned". I really, really like that.

Aw, fanks! I sorta took the idea from my sister, puppetmaker40, who ends her entries with something she's grateful for. I just changed it to pleasure and learning. It's funny--since I added it to my blog, I'll find myself taking mental notes when I come across something new or something pleasant, for future reference. Which is not entirely a bad thing, when I think about it.

Toss it over the side of a bridge and watch it plummet to the water's surface.

Try 1-800-got-junk, salvation army and goodwill. They often pick up crap. Have a few boxes of non-appliance crap nearby to sweeten the deal if you can. You won't be able to rip the door off to use it for a mag-po 'canvas' or anything, but a small price to pay to be rid of it.

You may also have a metal yard up in atlanta. Metal yard dudes like free hunks of metal. The other option, if you live in a dumpster-covered condo-type place (most aren't), is to get burly friends to hoik the damn thing into the dumpster. Not recommended if your rubbishmen's trucks don't have the mechanical dumpster-flipper-dealie on their butts.
