My day yesterday

So yesterday was a lot more interesting than I had planned it to be. I had to postpone my bank trip to night deposit some money because one of Brooke's neighbors needed help moving this large frakking wooden entertainment center thing moved from the relative she bought it from, to her apartment. And she pays for these sorts of things. Only $10 normally, but for an hour or two's work that's not bad (well, probably no more than an hour of actual work and maybe less even than that). Especially since she was getting rid of this huge wooden table that I thought would be a great replacement for the card table Amy has been sleeping under (and it is!), which the guy with the truck had to deliver to my apartment on the truck, on the way to pick up the entertainment center, it was so heavy. (One person could not lift it, I think, unless they were a circus strongman.)

I also got this hexagonal TV stand out of the deal, because she was going to throw it out otherwise, and it makes an excellent altar table, especially as it has storage space. Now, I'd been using this old blue trunk as an altar table before then, which had storage space too, but the lid would not open without everything atop the altar falling off. So this new altar table is a real gods-send, because I've got it situated so that the door opens from the side. It's the only side that doesn't have red altar cloth draped over it. Not much in there now aside from some spare altar supplies, but still pretty rad.

Then I went and did a night deposit at the bank, of some money Amy gave me. I need to do another one today on my way to see Lilla. Of course, by the time I post this, I will have done that already.

Oh, almost forgot a couple things that happened yesterday. So first, Brooke gave me a floppy disk (3 1/2 floppy) with a couple spreadsheet files for me. Not having a floppy drive on either of my computers, I had to dig out one of the USB floppy drives to read the disk. But apparently Brooke still has a fuckton of those things, and her computer is so old it still has built-in floppy drives. Both my computers being about 3 years old, neither has a floppy drive. Floppy drives are obsolete, after all. But they're still useful; if you have small files to give to someone and they don't have internet at home, or don't have their computer on them, or both, then floppies are nice to use, especially since they're so cheap that they're basically disposable; so if you lose one, big whoop.

Also, once I got my altar sorted out last night, I got on a cleaning whim and cleaned up my bedroom, because it would make using the altar easier. It looks much nicer now. Only bad thing is, the dust I kicked up is still making my nose and throat weird. Like, the throat is only mildly annoyed, but my nose has got snot annoying it but very little comes out when I blow it.

Oh yeah, and when I went out to dump a bunch of newspapers in the recycle bin, I found a fuckton of deposit bottles, including Vitamin Water bottles and water bottles, that someone had put in with the non-deposit recycling. Silly humans, throwing away money! Of course, I still haven't returned the bottles and cans Brooke gave me about a month ago, but probably Tuesday will be when I return them, since I have this new batch plus the Vitamin Water bottles from the case of them I got at the beginning of the month.
