I haven't heard from them in a long time, until last week, when they asked if I liked beer, and how! But, they were looking for Genny light drinkers, or something like that. While one of my favorite breweries is Genessee/High Falls, it's because they make Dundee, though I will buy Genny Cream if funds are tight. So, they couldn't fit me into their profile, but they found one a week later. It would have been a hard fit, several hours on a Thursday, which is Girl Scout night. So now I get an hour tonight week, I hope I get to drink beer.
Of course, Thursday we got three inches of heart attack snow, making for heavy shoveling and crappy driving. That was also the day I was trying to return an ebay item that was shipped poorly, and the wrong color, so my hands were full when I opened the trunk and said heart attack snow slid into my trunk, joy. The package was $35 for express mail, because it was so big, the ahole better refund that, since he made the mistake.
In other weather news, I plastic'ed our upstairs windows. I don't usually do this until after Christmas, but they're predicting lows in the teens at the end of the week.
In crappy driver news, the first blast of winter weather makes people forget to drive. On the drive home last night, people insisted on going into the intersection even if there was no room for them past the intersection, resulting in me having to thread my way past their cars to turn left. A*holes.
In other crappy driver news, I got hit in the grocery parking lot one night. The bozo backed into a silver car that was behind him, after the silver car backed up, I tried to get out, and he backed right into me. I chased him down as he drove around to yell at him, it was like talking to Mr. Magoo. "I hit your car, really?"
I didn't see any damage, my car is already dented, but what an asshole.
The music city problem is no longer occurring, the local team thought I fixed it just by laying hands on it. I wish I had that sort of power, I'd be laying hands on my carburetor.
In book news, I read Antony Beevor's Stalingrad, a good seasonal read about the Nazi Huns trying to capture
Stalingrad, and then finding out that there were lots and lots more Commie Russkis than they thought, and they're counter-attacking. Beevor did a great job of placing the block by block fighting in Stalingrad in the context of the whole 1942 campaign.
In other media news, we watched a little of XX/XY. You'd think a movie about attractive college students having a threesome and other variations on sex would be gripping and entertaining, but you'd think wrong. Mrs. Ha said it was like a foreign film, it was so hard to follow. The characters are poorly developed, and you really don't care about any of them. The second half of the movie, when the guy (Ruffalo) is in a stable relationship with his girlfriend and working as a commercial animator, only to be reunited with his college flings might have been better, be we stopped watching it after that.
