One of my favorite icons. Especially fitting for finding out about the "Content Strike" that some of the users of LJ are planning.

Oh noes! You are going to deprive us of your woes, your angsty whinings and your latest Harry Potter slashfic fantasy?

How will we ever survive?

The whole thing is ludicrous. Then again, if they put this much effort into something worthwhile, say a food drive, a car wash to raise money for puppies with angina, or writing letters to congressmen to stop insurance fraud or maybe rented a boat and cleaned up that plastic island in the Pacific. Instead, they all need to wank and rant and rave that Basic accounts are gone and someone said something mean about gay people. Ok. That last one isn't very nice, but seriously? You are upset that you have to have a blog with a few ads on it, which aren't even really that distracting (at least, from what I've seen)???? Myspace is crawling with ads, viruses, naked chicks and beer. Yet you still use that.

Why am I putting this much thought, time and effort into this post? I don't know. Probably the fever talking.

Anyways, gotta go meet with the insurance agent, get some lunch/dinner and a movie or two and then, I am in for the day. I am resting. YAY!!

Met with the insurance man. He upped my coverage on the condo without upping the premium, so that's good. I need to go through and video all my crap. Or take really good pictures. In case there is some catastrophic event or something. I can say, "Hello insurance claim adjustor person. I had 132 DVDs, 147 CDs, 220 books, lots of clothing, an insane number of shoes, three couches and a partridge in a pear tree."
And he shall be taken aback and say, "Surely you jest! One woman can not own that many things. With the exception of the shoes, Mrs. Marcos proved us wrong on that one. Nevertheless, the books and DVDs I do not believe you. However, the CDs, perhaps I will believe you IF you admit that they were all albums by The Carpenters, Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Rick Astley."
"I shall do no such thing, sir! Here are the pictures and videos to prove that none of the CDs are by those artists and that I did indeed own three couches."
"Curses! Foiled again!"

Or not.

I have glass coverage. That was really the first thing that I asked the insurance guy, Tom. He looked a little scared for a minute. Then I reassured him that nothing was wrong with my windshield, but I told him the saga of the HAM and he looked sympathetic to the ordeal. He's a nice guy. So, yay! I have glass coverage. I can be as mean as I want to the cooks. :)

So, we chatted a bit, figured other things out and he asked me about a 401K and health insurance, and I told him about how my job provided one and was contemplating the other. I gave him the Oot's name and he may call her after he visits his grandson in Boise. Yeah, Boise. Anyways, he is going to run the numbers with State Farm bank to see if I can do a low payment cash out refinance on the condo. If I can, I can pay off the 30% card and the other one that I owe on and be done with that debt. I'll be able to actually put money away in a 401K, perhaps set up a 529 for the twins' college plans and still save money to put away for a vacation. Yay!

Let's hope this works out.

I'm still getting my 4:30 a.m. fax calls. You would think that they would realize that it's not working when whomever they are trying to fax is all, "Hi. Listen, the past two weeks you haven't faxed in the secret documents. Think you could check the number? Thanks."


Tomorrow is more work. Orders. Good times. I think I'm driving. That's a good thing if I am. More cash in my pocket. Which paid for the nachos I got today from Nico's. Except, I asked for no guacamole. It was swimming in guacamole. I ate them anyways, but had a wicked stomachache later. Probably all in my head, but who knows? Maybe guacamole is my kryptonite. They are both green.

Ok, I just took some more sinus meds. The nighttime formula stuff. I'm going to get ready for bed. Yay!

Oh, I watched, "He Was Such A Quiet Man" this evening. Interesting. I also watched "The Holiday". Glad that was the free rental. I fell asleep. Big surprise. It was really kind of boring. Needed more Jack Black.
