I had a nice drive home from work in a nice warm car. I appreciate this, because last Friday I noticed that there wasn't any warm air (well, any air at all) coming out of the vents, and the first appointment I could get at my dealership was yesterday. Driving there through the snow with no defogging on my windshield was an adventure I'd rather not repeat. They replaced a blown transistor, and all is now well.

Also, apparently it's quite lucky that I have gas at home. I got a notification a couple of weeks ago welcoming me, under an entirely different name, to my gas company. I was going to call to ask what was up, but I forgot. Today, I got a bill under that name. I just called, and apparently when someone calls the gas company to establish service, they assume that the person is reporting their address correctly, and that they're a new occupant of the house, and that the old occupant is going away. Their suggestion was that this other person had transposed some digits in their address. If I had read the details of my last bill, I would have noticed the bit where it said "this is your final bill" and freaked out then, but I get my bills in e-mail, and I didn't bother looking at the details, just paid it and went on my way. They've reset the system to be in my name, but I do wonder about this other person and where they actually live.

House!

The move is finally done, and I can post again. Yay!

I closed! And got an air-conditioner! )

I'm quite happy with the new house. The ceiling fans in the kitchen do help to keep it cooler, and I love my new air-conditioner. Current annoyances: the shower doesn't drain as fast as I think it ought to, and the front and screen doors hinge on opposite sides, which makes unlocking the front door a bit more of a challenge than it ought to be. However, if I get a new screen door that hinges on the other side, it'll mean that you have to walk up the porch steps and around the door in order to open it. Which is weird. So I have to think about that.
