And... (cue crazy rock music)
I get to slide my car around!! That's right. After class last night I was e-brake sliding, trying to pull my car slideways as far as I could, fishtailing, bootlegging, and all kinds of fun stuff. In an empty parking lot, of course. Well, mostly empty. Slippery surfaces mean I get to do all kinds of fun maneuvers at a safe speed. On dry pavement it requires a lot of speed to break the tires free, but on snow and ice I get to do all that crap at under 15 mph. Great fun.
Of course, it took me half an hour to get from home to the babysitter's, half an hour to get to the doctor's office, and another half hour to get back here to work, so I didn't get in until 10, but that's certainly alright with me.
Today is day 13 of being sick, and I'm still feeling it, but the snow has got me in a better mood. Also I went to the coolest doctor this morning - she gave me a sack of samples, so I left there with everything I need to get well, and no money out of pocket. Excellent. Hope this stuff helps.
Tonight is Old Chicago night - perhaps we'll slide around the mall parking lot a bit. :-)
Finally, it's about damn time we get the option of doing our laundry online. Check this out. They are installing these washing machines in college dorms. You get online to see if one is free, and then you go put your laundry in. You can add fabric softener from your computer, and you can be notified by e-mail or text message on your cell phone when your load is complete. Pretty cool stuff.
I want a refrigerator that's online. So from the basement I could tell it to bring me some pizza. It could happen.
