crossover_chick: Doc looking very sarcastically over his shoulder (BTTF: in a sarcastic mood)
And a chilly one too -- not helped by the fact that our building apparently automatically switches to A/C at a certain point in the year, so the heat was off today. *grumble* Fortunately one of my coworkers has a little space heater for herself that she put on the half-way between desks to waft heat around, and another lent me a sweater, but still. I am REALLY hoping the improvement in the temperature they're predicting for next week is real. I'm sick of the cold.

I'm also rather sick of houses that turn out to be disasters when we go to see them -- the open house this evening was a total bust. Filthy, falling apart (literally in the case of the garage), with narrow rooms -- basically it would have been a gut job, and we're not looking for one of those. Bleh. Lucky I carry hand sanitizer with me. . .and then it took us an hour and a half to get home thanks to the Friday night traffic. Bleh.

On the plus side, we did get to stop at Newbury's on the way back, and I managed to get Mom's Mother's Day present, plus a copy of "Biff To The Future" 3 (they didn't have any of the other issues I wanted!'s having a month-long sale, so I'm thinking of ordering from them). Granted, Mom probably knows what I got her now, since she mentioned going to look for the exact same thing, and I kinda froze up before bolting for the comics (I was expecting Dad to distract her earlier). Ah well. At least I was able to get her card with minimal fuss when we stopped at Wal-Mart for other stuff. A little expensive, but I got a kick out of it, and I think she will too. Just gotta get it all in a nice bag for Sunday now.

Not much else to report -- despite getting home late, I got another page on "Fixing You," with Thirteen's "Bumby-like" facade beginning to slip, revealing the unfortunate case of self-loathing underneath. A lot of the rest of my evening has been spent listening to music on YouTube and browsing a bit of TV Tropes. Though I really do have some more productive stuff I should be doing. . .but you guys know me and my weekend time management at this point. *facepalm* Still, I have replies drafted -- time to post and catch up on things before hitting the sack! Night all!
