Miscellaneous good things that have happened since then:
- We tried out Firehouse Subs, our new local sub shop since the departure of Quizno's. They have an impressive hot sauce bar and I'm still amused that they have a sandwich called a New York Steamer (corned beef and pastrami with provolone and condiments, served hot). Laurel was won over by the dalmatian print table tops and so enthralled with the plastic fireman's helmet that comes with a kids' meal that she now wants to be a firefighter for Halloween.
- We ran into a bunch of Vogon's former coworkers at lunch today. It was good to see them and I heard an anecdote about a customer doing something with a report they didn't understand and calling support only to be told they had "changed a tire and caused the transmission to fall out". Hee.
- At the post office (rebelle1 and moment_of_me, your patterns went out today) I scored a book of Gee's Bend Quilt stamps, which made me think of blueeyed, who recently saw the quilt exhibition.
- On the way home from the post office, I heard a helo noise different from the usual traffic reporting ones and looked up to get an eyeful of our local flight museum's recently acquired Bell 47. I had the M*A*S*H theme stuck in my head for the rest of the ride home.
