Day off!

I have the day off! I think this is the first time I've ever had Sunday off during Buy Weekend, usually we're working the whole weekend trying to get everything in. Me and a lady from another department entered so fast our fingers nearly caught fire.

Last night I played Tetris for about an hour across the internet with [livejournal.com profile] nathew. It was pretty obvious when I started getting tired because I went from winning almost all of them to losing almost all of them. The blocks, they were not going where I wanted them to, and my thumbs were not cooperating!

I slept in, until Hawking jumped on my bladder. I swear she does that on purpose on mornings when I'm trying to sleep in, because that's the ONLY time she does that. There is a reason her nickname is "Rotten Little Monster."

I have Things To Do today! I'm making a list here so I can feel accomplished as I cross them off:
- Run Dishwasher
- Empty vacuum canister and put vacuum in car Okay, so it turns out my vacuum was not broken, but waiting for me to empty the canister. Really glad I tried turning it on before sending it to be fixed. I feel S-M-R-T now. At least I can vacuum now?
- Bring in boxes from car
- Clean out closet and pack up everything in there
- Transfer AT&T service to new apartment Turns out AT&T LIES, and you can't do this online. I'll have to call tomorrow.
- Clean out fridge
- Clean bathroom till it sparkles
- Clean catbox
- Take out trash
- Visit Home Depot for paint and ask about blinds
- Email dad and ask when his flight to Michigan is so I can maybe get the same flight
- Also ask dad about getting that neat roll-top desk from their house to my new apartment.
- Go to grocery store for milk and... uh, I forgot what else. See, this is why lists are good! Once again, I left my grocery list at home, and forgot the most important thing. I'll be going back to the store tomorrow, because I refuse to go back again today just for TP, because I'm just shy enough to feel judged when they recognize me.

Tomorrow, I need to:
- Call movers and give them my new apartment number, and ask if I need to take stuff out of my desk and dresser drawers
- Call current apartment office and ask if they really think I'm going to pay a "final water bill" that is sooooooo obviously wrong. They obviously saw that it's twice the usual amount, they have had to revise water bills before, and yet they expect me to pay it? Nuh-uh.
- Stop by the post office and get an address change packet
- Call AT&T about moving my service, since their website can't handle such an outrageous request unless I'm buying a more expensive bundle. AT&T, you can't see me, but I'm making a very rude gesture at you.

In one week, I will be putting my key and forwarding address in the drop box here, and leaving this place for good. Then I will go to my new apartment and party. And by "party", I mean "unpack".

Whew. Okay. I need to get going on this stuff I guess.

Day off!

YES. How cool would that be? To actually see everything and check out Heaven's pearly gates and get a really good picture of the place to replace the cartoony version? That would be so cool.

Looking at the answers for this, a lot of people are saying "no" for various reasons. They don't want to spoil the surprise, they don't want to find out if they are wrong, they don't believe in an afterlife so they think it would be a waste of a day to see nothing, etc. But man, I'd do it, in a heartbeat. I am a naturally curious person, so to see something that I literally will not see in my lifetime? Sign me up.

....okay, back to packing and cleaning.
