Nothing much of note
We brought Frisket along for the evening so she got to see how the other half lives. I think she realizes how lucky she is to have our local dog run (which is probably an acre). The Union Square dog run is at most a couple hundred square feet. At it has a bit of an odor. No grass. Though, it also doesn't reek of exhaust fumes from the nearby BQE.
Frisket also got to help us shop for cell phones (no luck), home phones (bought a desk phone at B&O and are waitlisted for their new two line wireless phones). She was very well behaved, though was eager to return to Brooklyn.
Today I drove up to White Plains to buy some shelving units for our front bedroom. Some time over the summer we'd settled on Skandia shelving and I drew up some diagrams. And then did nothing. Then the Container Store announced a 25% sale on all shelving units, ending October 26th. We said We should buy these now and then did nothing. Finally I got my act together and headed up this afternoon. It took nearly two hours to drive the 30? miles to White Plains, most of that time was spent driving around Astoria, Queens looking for a gas station which was actually selling gas.
Once I arrived I wasted no time in finding a clerk. I produced my spreadsheets and Visio diagrams. I think the clerk was mildly amused. It took awhile to get the orders into the system (surprisingly the order had to be keyed in twice, once in the "new" shipping order system, and a second time in a system to actually bill me. Just one word: network). I brought one unit back with me, the other two to be shipped. The MDX sagged a bit once I got all of the shelves and shelving detritus in but drove fine. The return trip only took an hour or so.
