Three quick things

  1. I finally got my car's air conditioner fixed... and immediately thereafter, the temperature dropped and has stayed below 72 degrees since. To everyone in the Twin Cities who was tired of that heat wave, you're welcome.

  2. I got a hundred bucks knocked off that AC repair bill pretty much just by asking if they could do better than their seemingly unreasonable labor rate. Who knew I was a master negotiator? Not me! I already bragged about this on Facebook, but I am proud enough that I feel the need to mention it again anyway.

    And finally,

  3. I have a post up at Allie's Answers today. You should go read it.

That is all. Carry on. Happy long weekend, if you've got one coming. (My condolences to you if you don't.)

You negotiator, you. :-)

I have a self made long weekend. My "special day off" is tomorrow.

You're lucky it's in the 70's there. It hasn't cracked 60 here in three days.

Also, I'm glad you just wrote that post because it reminded me I had to write mine! Good job, lady.
