Unplanned Home Adventures

This morning, I finally noticed that the inside of our fridge didn't seem terribly cold. So, in Stage One of denial, I increased the "Desired Coldness" setting and went out to get a few replacement groceries. When I got back, it was much clearer that the fridge had probably stopped working 5-7 days ago and was just now achieving room temperature. This is the 3rd or 4th time this has happened since we bought this house 11 1/2 years ago.

By then, all the repair people were tied up for the day and they don't work weekends. *sigh* So once the outside temperature dropped again, I put the food out in the garage in various coolers and let it get cold before sealing things up. You know, the basic Amana or whatever we had at the old house never did this. Built-ins are not all they're cracked up to be. :(

Since I thought I'd be trapped at home all afternoon, waiting for the repairperson (hah!), I totally failed to notice that the rain had stopped and would be holding off long enough to bike outside. D'OH! Biked in the garage instead...

I've done some fic maintenance (though the Prison Break pages are lagging behind), and I removed the dedications from several stories where the giftee never commented. That's always awkward. I can only assume they didn't like their stories, and couldn't figure out what to say. I hope to get some more of my Flood Auction Fics done this weekend, and this year (I can't believe I'm saying this) I'd like to finish off the 3-4 fic challenges that need 1-2 more stories. Plus, complete any one of my stalled-out Wincest fics.

In other news, Charlie Sheen seems to have completely lost it, AND failed to learn a single damn thing from Mel Gibson's tirades (including the fact that anti-Semitism is completely unacceptable. Still) Dear Charlie: I hope your career tanks for good now, and we can all be spared your idiocy.

So, I hear it might be safe to watch SPN again. True?
