With only one week to go before Me Week, life is throwing all kinds of interesting things my way.
In the last few days I:
- May have laid the groundwork to get the manager of a branch of Bank A fired.
- Pointed out to the folks at Bank B a small $99,900 error in the fees and minimums listed on their web site (me not being a mathy person in the slightest makes this more embarrassing for them then an achievement for me) (And this is related to the first item only inasmuch as the incident at Bank A inspired me to get off my duff and hunt for a new bank.)
- Had to rein in my eldest sibling who, out of misunderstanding and fear, has been spreading a false rumor about one of our parent’s having cancer. He does not, so far as we know, have cancer, nor are any of his numerous doctors investigating this possibility.
- Purchased The Land of Painted Caves from one of the few remaining local bookstores. Still re-reading Book 1, have placed a hold on Book 2 but it’s not due back until mid-April, and will need to reserve and read several books beyond those before I get to the one I still (apparently) own and finally the one I just bought. Pretty sure this will be the summer of Earth’s Children.
- And finally received a long-coveted copy of the jazz CD Empire by Scott Colley that Borders had on back-order for an entire month, but Amazon ultimately was able to fulfill and deliver on the second business day after I ordered it. The album is named for a long-gone town from Kansas’ earliest settlement history. The album is just as wonderful as I remembered it (perhaps more?), and may be worn out by the time Me Week concludes. Given all the above points, that would be completely understandable.
