Grimm Outlook

I just went down to get the mail, and received a free screening card for the "Brothers Grimm" movie with Matt Damon and Heath Ledger.

"That might be nice to do with M," I thought.

Then I noticed it's for TODAY, at 7 pm on West 42nd (down the block from my ex-office). It's now after 6pm and I just washed my hair and there's no possible way. Oh well. It was mailed 8/23. What were they thinking?

Last night, I signed on to MSN in the wee hours and got invited to play Jeopardy. I told them sure, as soon as I made a pit stop. Then while flushing, the handle broke off from the mechanism inside. I managed to get it to flush by fiddling inside the tank, but then the water didn't refill and it was really noisy. I fixed this by tying a sheet around that big rubber bulb and attaching the other end to the towel rack directly above; this kept it elevated and silent. Ran back to the computer and they were nice enough to wait to start the game. Games. I played two, until about 6:30 a.m.

Luckily, the maintenance office opened at 8, and someone came over and replaced the flusher. Except now I have a long metal handle instead of the little plastic one, and it doesn't give a pronounced click like before so it feels like it didn't connect (but so far, so good).

I celebrated by napping most of the day. This was after a previous nap from about 11pm - 3am.

In better news, I'm ALMOST caught up on my work. The sun is shining.
