My landlord came yesterday and fixed the roof -- that is the roof update, and damned overdue but welcome. Hard going to work when you ain't had no zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Also yesterday got home from grocerifying E at about 7 or so. No scooters working at West Side Slaveways, so had to go to Tumbling Water instead. There one must stagger to the customer service desk and get a key. So -- had to find that, which had no one there, then she came, but she didn't hear me, etc. Finally got stupid scooter key -- is Tumwater such a hotbed of crime that they have to do that? All their scooters seem barely used, compared with the West Side's which are beaten into the ground from use.
Thank You, Hazel and Garth
I keep having happy little email exchanges with unknown workers (or owners) when I buy something online. I ordered some things from Giant Robot and the CoolestShop -- both of which I seem to buy from repeatedly -- and the recipients of my emails went to great lengths to make the experience better for me. Even to the point of giving me a discount for reasons of Love (their word). And Hazel drew a little greeting on the box I received. No wonder I like buying things from them. I should point out that I don't buy much, but most of my purchases are made through websites.
