Shortly thereafter, we had a new cooker installed. He, being an installation man rather than a delivery man, did not take away the *old* cooker, and because I really did not want a nasty old cooker sitting in the kitchen for weeks, which seemed the likely scenario if I didn't nag, I nagged to find out when they'd be taking it away. "In the morning," they said, and I said something like, "Uh," and they said, "Maybe we can get it tonight." And after some back-and-forthing, yer (other) man called to say he'd be getting it himself at half six, and by 6:40, he'd come and gone again with the cooker.
I'm astounded. And we have a lovely bright white shiny new cooker! I need to go figure out what to make on the lovely bright white shiny new cooker. Ted requested burgers, but I was waiting for them to come pick up the old cooker, so I wasn't able to get any mince. Sigh.
Astounded or astonished; that's another one LJ moods doesn't have. I should petition them to make a paid-account feature of the ability to add mood slots.
Zoë Conway is playing at the Half Moon Theatre tonight. I believe I'll go see her. Oh, hey, if anybody's in Dublin and wants to see her (she's a *tremendously* good fiddler), she'll be at Whelans at 8pm on the 9th. Well worth the €15 admission.
miles to Minas Tirith: 323
p.s. After almost 2 years of hand-lighting stoves, I'm a little confused by not having to. Weird.
