tinhuviel: (Ren and Stimpy Happy Happy Joy Joy)

When Janice realised a few hours ago that I had put my feelers out for a twin/half bed, she told me that I could have hers, which is in pretty much brand new condition. She is wanting to get rid of the bed, because she has a new suit with a larger bed that's better support to her ailing back. Fine with me! I was pleased. Feelin' groovy.  Paul Simon was prepared to serenade me!  

Then, about an hour after that good news, I got a call from JoLee at Stonesthrow. I could tell by the tone of her voice things weren't good, before she even had the chance to say, "We've got a little issue with the apartment."

Oh, no.

But it wasn't a bad thing at all, except for a brief delay in when I'll move in.  JoLee went on to explain that the apartment would not be ready until Friday, June the 9th, three days after my initial move-in date.  I told her that would be fine, it was not a really big deal, 'cos I knew Janice wouldn't mind me staying a few extra days. That's when JoLee told me that the property manager had taken off the pet deposit, as well as the monthly pet rent, for one of the furkids, to make up for any inconvenience the delay might have caused me.

But wait, there's more!  Because my move-in date changed, I had to contact the power company and AT&T to change my utilities transfer and Internet installation date.  It was whilst chatting with an agent at ATT.com, it was revealed that the price of $30 the first agent I'd spoken with had locked in for me had not actually been locked in, and I was designated in the system to be paying $40 a month for Internet, after paying my $99 installation fee.  

Oh, no.

But the agent told me he could correct the mistake, that my promised price was good.  The problem was, the system wouldn't let him change anything about the order, so he had to cancel it.  That's when things got really good.  Not only did he place me a new order for the 9th of June, but he also waived the installation fee, for the inconvenience of the botched first order!  I have confirmation of the new arrangements in email and chat.

Thanks to these folks wanting to ensure I wasn't upset about [not] being inconvenienced, I now have fundage for groceries in June (and stuff to cook them in and eat them on, thanks to my Tribe, you know who you are!), barring any unforeseen horror stories lurking in the shadows of chance.

The #1 sign your anti-depressant isn't working
While taking my meds last night, I looked at my Lexapro and saw that it says "FL" on one side.

My first thought was that it stood for "Fat Loser." I think perhaps this is a message from god.

The #1 sign that your luck is for shite
While getting out of the car the other day, I noticed a blue bird flying in my direction. As this is usually a good sign portending luck and happiness, I was well-pleased by this beautiful omen floating my way. Then the omen pooped and it almost hit me. So much for the Bluebird of Happiness.

The #1 sign that you live with a big freak
Aunt Tudi and I were playing a game last night that required reading. Since Aunt Tudi's eyes aren't the best in the world (she goes to the eye doctor at the end of this month), she had to not only wear her glasses, but also use a magnifying glass so she could see the questions. All I saw was this:

blahblahblahblah )

It goes without saying that I had difficulty concentrating on the game while the Mouth of Dread was looming over my defenseless person.

In other news, I'm seriously considering vacuum-packing everything in the house including Aunt Tudi and all the animals. We need the room. I can see it now: an empty house with just a pile of vacuum-packed family members filling up one small corner in the living room. I bet there'd even be an echo.
