Yay! (Computer and cleaning and Battlemaster)

My computer is on the way! They bumped up the processing by a couple of days and shipped it out yesterday and was supposed to arrive between the 9th and the 11th, ie right in the middle of the conference again. Then when i checked the UPS site they said it had a "rescheduled delivery date" of the 6th! I just checked again this morning and it's currently in Anaheim and "out for delivery," presumably to wherever my local UPS place is, not to the apartment itself. Of course they'll try to drop it off and i won't be here, but maybe i can manage to pick it up at the UPS place on saturday :)

I'm pretty sure i mentioned that i did some cleaning on monday(?) i forgot to mention that i didn't just move boxes around, i actually cleaned part of the bathroom! I'd been rather afraid of the toilet, which had an inch wide strip of black stuff around the water line, but coraa got some bleach to clean the kitchen and her bathroom and was nice enough to let me have some of it, so i dumped a whole lot in the toilet and swirled the water around with the brush (to make sure the bleachy water actually got to all the icky parts) and when i came back five or ten minutes later it was almost all gone! I did a little bit of scrubbing and let it sit some more, but the toilet is actually _white_ now! The scrubby brush thing may have to go though. I don't know how long it's been there, but it's starting to turn brown =/

And finally, Ikalak is dead!!!!!!

Argh!

I outsmarted myself =P

I figured i'd wait till about 12:30 before heading home to see if i could catch the UPS people on the theory that they were slighly less likely to deliver pacaged between noon and one due to lunch and such. cwendy41 pointed out that they might have lunch from one to two or something like that, but i was figuring that i had bettwen odds being here between 1 and 1:30 or 2. Well she was right, i found a UPS slip on the door when i got here at 12:55 and when i checked the tracking site it said the first delivery failed at 12:39 =P

Now i'm wondering if i should call them and tell them to keep it at the hub (if i can figure out who to call) or try and be here a little earlier tomorrow on the theory that the schedule will be aproximately the same.
