Tuesday's dead

Good day today. The check cleared already (sometimes it takes three days), so I was able to pay my cell phone bill, both credit cards (one completely, one about 3/4), put aside money for rent, put aside money for the new bed we need to get, and also stick some money in savings.

Then I went downtown to accompany girasole to her cardiologist appointment. I also started reading George Pelecanos's Hard Revolution. After The Mom was done with the doctor, I put her on a train home, then went to the Barnes & Noble on 5th and 46th and bought way too many DVDs (Charlie Wilson's War, I am Legend, the second season of Barney Miller, the full set of both Law & Order: Trial by Jury and Fortysomething, "The Time Warrior" Doctor Who serial, and Schoolhouse Rock), as well as presents for terri_osborne.

Then I went to the PO box and was pleasantly surprised by a check I wasn't expecting (not to be confused with the check I am expecting, which still hasn't arrived). The web site I write for takes 90 days to pay, so I often forget about invoices that I submitted three months ago, so the check is a pleasant shock....

I then mailed the contract for StarCraft: Ghost Academy to TokyoPop, went to Terri's office to give her her prezzies, deposited the check, bought some new sweatbands (the old ones are getting icky), took the bus home, went to the pharmacy and the grocery store, and came home to put away groceries and fill the dishwasher.

Now I nap before karate and fighting class...........
