The world moves weird.

Three things happened this morning.

1. I woke up with a migraine that I'm about 73% sure has to do with eyestrain. Apparently, I'm in my late 30's and need to pay attention to things like how much time I spend staring at glowing screens. I knew it was coming, but meh. Proves that me printing out my reading for class is a smart thing.

2. My parents finally got around to taking my car in to get the scratches and dents buffed out of it. Which, I'm not gonna complain AT ALL because they're dealing with it and I don't have to. I'm just a little crabby being reminded that I had the damn thing for less than two months before someone scratched the shit out of it and didn't even try to leave a # or insurance info.

3. My new laptop got delivered to my parents. Which. This was surprising for more than one reason. Firstly, apparently if you buy something expensive, service is better? Which, I guess makes sense from a capitalist point of view. I'm just so damn cheap it usually doesn't impact my life. (You're looking at the girl who's had her last three televisions given to her by friends who were upgrading.) Also, for the first time, ever, the weather was good in Illinois when I had computer parts delivered. Every single other time, there's been massive storms, flooding, and no one's been home. So. I guess Irma's possibly my fault? I SWEAR I ORDERED IT DELIVERED TO ILLINOIS.

On a side note, apparently me having the package sent to my parents' house caused twelve kinds of back end problems, but no way in hell I was having it delivered to my house. Seriously, my relationship with mail remains complicated.

In Wink related news, she seems to be doing fine! She's a bit more active than Dessy ever was, and ADORES the little soft mice to bat around. I found two in her water dish, so I'll have to keep a hard side-eye on those in case of Real Mice. I feel kinda bad leaving her as often as I do to go to work and am lowkey monitoring if she needs a friend. She is hugely snuggly when I get home and generally puts up with my absence with good grace. Still. I worry!

Too much to do.

I am doing my best to settle in to some kind of routine. Work flows are being weird as it's post-Labor Day and there's always a bit of wooginess when it comes to volume. That will sort itself out. But I had my second 501 class last night. It was fine. But I need to start working on some of the assignment stuff. As such, I'm going to need to do a bit more work on Saturday. I did basically nothing on Labor Day (I stay home on Labor Day and limit work created for others) and am paying for that a bit now. Which, well. I kinda deserve it.
