#5367: Well, what do you think of that?

So, Mrs. Fungus lured me into the bedroom, and as things were going on I started hearing "pop pop pop" and "crackle pop pop". Who the hell, I wondered, is setting off fireworks at 11:30 PM, and why?

I was...occupied. That's my defense.

But then I had a moment to think, and realized, "Hey, I think the Cubs won the series," I said.

Just got up and checked on-line, and yeah, they did. So the fireworks make sense.

Not that I really care one way or another.

But the last time a Chicago team with a long losing streak won the final game--the Bears in the Super Bowl in 1986--a few days later that was erased from the headlines by a bigger story (Challenger disaster). Hope nothing happens this time.

Seeing ads from Tiger Direct, and they're advertising no-name brand SSDs, 500 MB for around $110. 500 MB is big enough to be useful. Name brands are about 2x as expensive, but I expect all prices to continue to drop as long as we can avoid WW3.

It's early on Thursday morning and I need to get up early for work tomorrow because I need to stop somewhere on the way in to fax more paperwork to the insurance company. This is for FMLA, because the person who started the claim did the wrong kind and I need to re-fax the paperwork from the doctor so they can enter it correctly. *sigh*

Well, we'll get it sorted out, and then maybe I'll actually get some bills paid around here.
