He eventually made it, so I have a little more money, and the workbench will be put to use. He was quite enthusiastic about it, actually - and I understood why he was late when he arrived. He brought his roughly 8 year old daughter with him. She was a nice little thing, but I find even the most cooperative are an amazing time sink...
So I arrived at Dinner& almost an hour late, not that this was exactly the end of the world. The funny thing is that hollyk had brought cheese and crackers, and had apparently been told that was "my thing." It worked out rather nicely, in fact - I brought veggies.
It was a nice group, and pretty mellow (possibly because of the heat). raininroses was back, and so of course was amor_ereptor. hogarthhughes, who appears to like to be mentioned, made his regular appearance, as did the ever-sexy princesskiti22 (insert "squee" here).
The lovely electrichobbit was there, as well as his most definitely Cuban jorgitoelcubano.
And, of course, other people. Like, you know, the hosts and stuff.
I headed home when the party broke up, dropped off a few things at the Duplex, then headed up to Chez supersniffles to do some PC surgery. That actually proceeded rather surprisingly without incident, though it was amusing - segajenison called just as I got there, to say she wasn't going to be home that night.
We suspect she may be avoiding one or both of us.
Cindi took me out to supper while her new disk was formatting. When we got back, she had a new 186Gb to fill up with crap. I even transferred a little bit over for her.
Then I went home, and slept. Fairly well. Though I was woken up late this morning by the AMC real estate agent. On the other hand, he wanted to meet up with me and hand me a check, so I dealt.
I have now picked up and deposited said check, and fueled up for the day.
Time to go back home and nap.
