Before I start, one random thing that I’ve found laughable over the past few weeks. My spam blocker catches most of the spam that’s posted to this blog, thankfully, but I always skim through them just to make sure no real comments were caught. And the spammers are trying some interesting techniques right now. The old spammers would say things like “I really like this topic. You are nice and intelligent.” Now they’re saying “This is a good post, but you have a grammatical error in the last sentence” or “I disagree with your opinion, but appreciate your writing skill.”
Of course, they’re still getting deleted.
Things still seem to be a go for closing on Friday. Still no word from the settlement company about how much money I need to bring to the table. I’m probably just going to do a wire transfer, which seems to be their preferred method. Thankfully, I can do that online and don’t have to worry about losing the check. It’s a bit scary to think about though. That’s some serious money.
I have been making list after list of things that I need to do and things that I need to buy. It’s getting a bit overwhelming, but that’s why I make lists in the first place. Thankfully, I’ve got a four day weekend to deal with all of this.
I think step one might be plugging in my little iPod speakers, gearing up some music, and dancing through my house in my socks.
