That lovely feeling of mellow nostalgia I get on the first morning when it's chilly enough to turn on the heater was considerably spoiled when I turned on the heater and nothing happened. The nice fellow who came to investigate it assured me that nothing WOULD happen until I gave the Universe back most of the unexpected check I'd received twelve hours previously, that I was joyfully hoping to use on Christmas presents.

Oh, well...

Much better to receive the check and then immediately have to give it back, than NOT to receive it AND have to fork out for the heater. Still...

The Universe works in mysterious ways.

Tea, laundry, enough sleep and a day of writing... AND no class tomorrow. (So I can be home for Heater Man...)

Ugh, condolences on the loss of the unexpected check, even if it is better than not having it at all. O:(

I thought it was cats and cars that knew when one got an unexpected bit of cash in...

Well, bugger. On the other hand - yay that the universe was ready right away. But .... sugar, shoot, and scorch my soup.

Brrr. I hope you're keeping warm. I hope the real Christmas prezzie check arrives soon. (Though... being warm isn't a bad gift to give to yourself.)
