Yesterday
Helped browngirl move. I drove the van, which I think was the first time I have done so. It went smoothly, and there wasn't a lot of stuff. Didn't end up making it out to an event I had planned on going to, but I did manage to get invited to an impromptu game of Cities & Knights closer in to town, which was nice. geeyodi won her first game of Cities & Knights, which was cool. Then I went to Sol Azteca with theora. I got pork in orange juice and chipotle peppers. It was very good.

There was pizza after the move, but I managed to avoid it. The person ordering the pizza was nice enough to order some Buffalo wings for me. I suspect that treacle_well might have had a hand in that, which is nice. And I avoided dairy at the Mexican restaurant, too (after learning that the beans had dairy in them), so go me. I was actually going to give in tot he pizza before I learned that I didn't have to. I was really hungry.

Got the water and sewer bill from the city yesterday. It lists a past due amount, so I suspect that we got one something like 6 months ago, except the stupid Post Office lost it. I know they've lost a couple of things, incompetent bastards. But the good news is that it looks like there isn't any kind of late fee for that, since the past due amount was about the same as the current amount. So, it turns out it costs something a little over $100 for water and sewer for a year, which is pretty good, probably.

I also got my stamps in the mail yesterday, so I'm going to send one piece of mail out today. I need to wait to send the water and sewer bill out, since hrafn has our checkbook. Err, I think I have other checkbooks, so I could just grab one of those and write an out-of-order check. Time to rummage around in some drawers.

Actually I didn't. I thought about mentioning it, and am not sure why I didn't. A little shyness perhaps, not liking to overstep boundaries, that sort of thing. But I'm glad that we ended up with something you could eat.

And thanks again for inviting R and me along to majes's impromptu C&K game. I enjoyed it. (And in case you didn't know, I would have been happy to drive you there, even if you hadn't invited us to join you.)

Yeah, that's an awful lot of service for your hundred bucks. Imagine what it would cost (and what the service would be like) if Verizon or Mass Electric or Exxon were the ones charging for it. “Oh, your water was brown again this month? Awfully sorry about that. I’m afraid we can’t discount your $150.00 monthly bill (it’s those meddling regulators, you see), but we’ll be happy to send you a coupon for a free month’s upgrade to our premium water service. Oh, you didn’t get your coupon from last month? I’ll have somebody look into that and we’ll get back to you. Have a nice day.”

Actually, somebody (either Tigerlily or Ayesha) reminded me of your presence (well, you *were* driving truck most of the time) and dairy problems (I spaced a little) and that's when I asked you about the wingz.
