Water, Water, Everywhere
Mother Nature must have read that article on drought conditions across America on Yahoo!News tonight, because it's REALLY coming down out there, and has been since about 1:30PM. Actually, no matter how dry it's gotten here, it's never been as bad as down in the Carolinas and Georgia, where they have major water restrictions. We've had several big storms and thunderstorms in the last few months.
It was an ultimately frustrating day. I went to Staples to buy CDs and inquire about jobs, and it turns out they just hired several people and don't need more. I'll apply to other stores, but the Audubon one is the closest and I was really hoping to find something nearby. Yet another dead end.
I bought CD-RWs to copy everything onto...and it turns out you can't edit on THEM either. Sigh. Until I can figure out something better, everything I need to edit is on the hard drive. I'm just afraid of losing work that dates back to college.
On the other hand, I dropped by FYE quick again before I hit Staples. Not only did they have It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown this time, but it turned out to be on sale for about $8.50, much to my surprise and delight, since this wasn't mentioned anywhere on the case or the shelves. As I told the girl behind the counter, Great Pumpkin is the closest I get to celebrating Halloween, since I hate horror movies. The Great Pumpkin DVD also comes with the rarely-seen Peanuts Election Day special You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown, a fun spoof of 70s-era politics and school elections.
