#4059: Bits-n-pieces

So today Mrs. Fungus and I got up at the same time, and I didn't feel embalmed when I did. I don't have to be in today until 4:30, and I have some errands to run, and I can run them without feeling like a zombie or rushing to get them done.

Kinda makes me worry, that.

They're predicting snow for tonight, 1-3 inches' worth. That's an improvement considering they were predicting 2-4 inches yesterday. As always I'll believe it when I see it.

I plugged in my MP3 player long enough to make sure none of the South Park Christmas songs are on the Christmas music SD card. I'm going to start taking it with me to work; it can provide seasonal music for me at various times, as is convenient, but I don't want the thing blaring Mr. Garrison yelling "MERRY F--KING CHRISTMAS!" for obvious reasons.

I also wrote down the model number for my inkjet printer, and what kind of ink carts it takes, in hopes of discovering what it'll cost me to get new ones. I haven't been able to print anything with this printer for more than three years, because ink costs money; now that I have income and an employee discount at a major electronics retailer it may be time to think about restoring the thing to full operation. I just want to find out what it'll cost me so I can put it into a future month's budget.

Also on the list is a longish (10' or so) USB cable so I can actually plug the damned printers in and leave them plugged in. I've got a hub--had that since about February or so--but I need a cable to run to the hub from the back of the computer. That's definitely on my shopping list for today.

It just feels wrong to be sitting here at 1:30 PM. This is the first time I've had to be in this late in quite a while--if not at all--so every time I see the time I start to panic until I remember that no, I've got two hours (as I write this) before I even need to get into the shower.

Yesterday, during some of my down time, I created a ringtone on the phone itself using the voice recorder function. Dang.

Well--although I have plenty of time, my errands won't get done if I spend all that time just sitting here and rattling keys.
