Gamer Dice

Lost Odyssey in a Nutshell

You are Emo Warrior(TM), complete with Mopey Lock of Hair(TM), and you cannot die. Since you cannot die, you get sent on the most dangerous missions the Council can come up with. You make friends and enemies along the way.

Despite that, it is an amusing game to watch so far and the bad guy ought to have a neon sign over his head that says BWAHAHAHA(TM). I'm looking forward to the rest.

Today is "Get Crap Done" day

So far today, Jeff and I have...

- Faxed in my employment documentation for the QA freelance job
- Canceled my condo insurance and, because that would make my car insurance go up (due to the lack of having multi-line insurance), Jeff added me to his car insurance and cut my effective car insurance in half. Then, I canceled my current car insurance.
- Ordered the final PSE bill for the condo.
- I got myself set up on my appropriate health insurance online and started my online prescriptions so I don't have to go to the store and I'll save money.
- Now that the condo is sold, Jeff and I will be doing a joint refinance on his home in order to consolidate our debts. He started that paperwork
- Paid bills, including my sister who did all the wedding invites for us, and the bill for my tax guy.
- Did some cleaning.

There's still a lot to do but we did get a lot off our plates. Now, I'm waiting for my training to commence.

McPostAlot: We are NOT Pleased...

Jeff and I have started getting wedding presents from our various registries. (Yay for excited parents!) Thus, packages are arriving on a fairly regular basis. Thus, I am not surprised when I see the UPS truck arrive. Since I am working, I half watch him out the window to see if he carries one of those things that I need to sign. He doesn't. So, I don't go downstairs. I am surprised to hear a thump from downstairs and see the UPS dude running back to his truck and peel out. I didn't even know those trucks could peel out.

So, I go downstairs and open the front door. The package is there and is covered in "Fragile" tape and big red words saying "Do not sign for if seal is broken"... which it was. In fact, when I picked up the package, part of whatever it is had punched through the cardboard box. So, I brought it inside and opened it. Jeff and I are big on not opening any of the wedding gifts until after the wedding* but this was an exception. I needed to see if it had broken. Fortunately, it had not and all is well but I am NOT pleased with the UPS guy right now.

* This doesn't stop me from looking at the registries to see what has already been bought. I'm curious and unrepentant.
