real life Tuesday

Went to Bryn Mawr.  I thought I was supposed to meet my prospective roommate at 2:00 in the afternoon, at the Borders bookstore in Rosemont.  I got Mercedes Lackey's Foundation and read it.  It ended in rather a cliffhanger situation.  None of the main "good guys" were in immediate danger, but there were a lot of questions unanswered.  Of course, this spells trilogy.  I saw there was a sequel in hardcover, but I just bought the first.  Perhaps I'll get the sequel from the library.  (Added: Of course, I couldn't wait, and got the sequel at Barnes & Noble.)

I called to say I was at Borders when I got there, and got voice mail.  I called again fifteen minutes after we were supposed to meet up, and got voice mail again.  C.W. called back at 2:30 to say that I'd gotten my days mixed up, that she was talking to R.A. that day, and that I was supposed to meet them at the bookstore on Thursday.  I had an appointment in [borough] on Thursday, an important one I couldn't break.  R. and I will meet up another time, perhaps at the apartment itself.

I considered myself very well-behaved that day as far as spending money went, to spend an hour in Borders and just get one paperback.  I had a Borders coupon, for 33% off, so the book was only $5-something.  I saw other books I wanted to read, and actually did get one of them from the library, the latest Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire novel.  I was very upset about some of the characters who were killed off in the last one, plus some of the things that happened to Sookie.

So I'm supposed to meet with my prospective roommate sometime in the next couple of weeks.  I'll make sure I get the day right this time.  I'm excited about possibly moving out.
