The freezing rain failed to appear this morning so I got out to Fiesta for groceries, then gung-ho shovelled and chopped sidewalks up and down the block just as in the old days. *Then* the freezing rain started. Hope the forecast snow follows, to cover it all over again: though you'd think yesterday's four inches of slippery slidey mealy stuff would be enough.
The book I ordered early in January from amazon.uk having missed its delivery date by two weeks and change, I took advantage of their Buyer's Remorse amnesty (cancel within a month and we'll refund to your method of payment, and you needn't return the book.) Book of course shows up three days later. And I might have returned it nonetheless except I noticed that the refund was for the $5 I'd put on Visa for the bit my gift certificate didn't cover. The $10 from the book token is not refundable. So yes, a good thing the book came or I'd be seriously chizzed.
What did arrive in excellent time was a book of New York Times acrostics. The first one took me over an hour. It was from Harry Potter and contained the word 'quidditch' twice.
Meanwhile I shall never get to use my Indigo Books token because Indigo (the last bricks and mortar first-run bookstore standing downtown) still has nothing I want, or can't get cheaper second hand.
