NaNoWriMo Day 26 – We’re from the government and we’re here to help!

No words today.  Only Zuul.

Man, this new refrigerator is acting weird lately.

Today the high was something like 39.  I covered all my windows.  Of course, the forecast says 70 on Sunday.  Midwestern weather is the pits.

Also today, I had to deal with the fallout that comes from trying to do something nice. I gave someone my old car—it needs more work than I can do, and the recipients have ninja car fixin’ skills I don’t have.  Unfortunately, they neglected to register it, drove it, and boom!  It was impounded.

Am I responsible?  No, not according to the police department.  I called the Department of Revenue today to make sure they got the bill of sale I mailed them.  After a stroke-inducing moment of “We don’t have a record of that,” Operator Number Fabulous Customer Service went and checked the records they haven’t entered yet.  She found it.  According to her, I’m not liable for it either; the reason I got the impound notice is that I was the last registered owner.

I sent that thing the first week of August. That’s government efficiency for you.

Well, at least they found it.  So the bureaucracy saved me this time.  I hope.

That’s all for today.  Hopefully I’ll get finished with the basic draft before NaNoWriMo ends.  Tomorrow I have my research appointment.  Should be interesting.

In the meantime, please enjoy this adorable pup my brother-in-law posted on Facebook today.  As puppies are universal cuteness, I’ll let him keep his man card this time.
