We got a medium truck with plow, front-loader, and dump truck today, as well as a couple of guys with shovels. They cleared out mostly around my van, but I still had about eight inches of snow on top and on the windshield so I asked Lucila if I could hire her husband to get the snow off the van and he came to do it without being paid. He couldn't reach the center of the top, but I didn't dump any off on other cars and I think a lot will melt tomorrow. I can call Kaiser tomorrow about the H1N1 vaccine.

I headed to the ATM for money and then remembered that I have enough money for the rest of the week, as long as I don't go to the grocery store. I don't really need anything on my list and there's nothing on sale or that I have a coupon for, so I think I won't go. It took me a couple of tries to get the mail -- they hadn't really cleared anything other than the sidewalk near it, and I had to run the van up on some snow to get to the one clear spot on the edge of the sidewalk and then right before the clusterboxes, a big piece of snow had fallen from a tower of snow. I just sort of pushed along under it.

Spirit has been sleeping a lot and not eating the dry food right when I give it to her since she started the Prozac. But today she was awake until now, ate right when I put the dry food on the bottom shelf of the end table, came out and sat on my lap after the errands, and when Junie went by, put her face out to say Hi. I hope that means the Prozac is starting to work.

The SFBC flier came today and the Science Fiction Quick Takes are all Fantasy: five by Kim Harrison, one ghost, one magician, one dragon, and one mythical bestiary. There's not a bit of SF in that. Oh, hmmmm. I didn't even look at the Fantasy: Haldeman, Bradbury, Scarborough & McCaffrey, etc. I bet they swapped the headers.

Here's a tool that Soren and I need!
