must not kill

work is insane - ongoing, escalated server issues, no-one has access except the guy they fired who's last day was 12/31 - remain calm, be nice to customers, remember guns are illegal in dc

house closing is tuesday, and today the mortgage company decides they urgently need a half a dozen things they haven't already gotten, plus new copies of a few others - immediately or we will have to postpone closing

and our insurance agent just called, apparently mortgage company insists that homeowners insurance cover full selling price of house and land, when homeowners insurance is solely to cover replacement value of the house - if the land falls into a sinkhole or an earthquake swallows up the space, we're not getting the land back - and according to usaa not only is it unethical to insure for more than the value of the structures, it is also illegal in maryland to do so

i want a cocktail and a cigarette now please

feeling a bit better

in liu of smoking and drinking i did a bit of retail therapy on my lunch break and now i feel calmer - steve madden is having an awesome sale on boots/shoes right now, so i picked up http://www.stevemadden.com/cgi-bin/SoftCart.exe/STORE/FAST/FULLTON.htm?L+control+kllb4722+1073101380 for $50 (everyday boots, leather, good treads for icy/snowy weather and or the back of the bike) and a really nifty pair of pointy toed boots w/ stilletto heels that aren't on the website

damn... if it takes retail therapy to keep me from smoking when i'm having a bad day i think it would be cheaper to keep smoking once in a while
