Today's reason to be thankful
I have probably the best landlord in Los Angeles. He wasn't mad at all about Cujo's accident (for which I still blame Bruce Willis) and in fact wanted to make sure that I wasn't leaving town for vacation feeling worried or stressed out -- he said he'd take a look at it while I was gone and we could figure it out later.
It's a crazy world when you love your landlord and can't stand your downstairs neighbor.
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving! I have my boarding pass (and seat assignment!!) in hand, so barring another Die Hard incident on the freeway tomorrow, by noonish I will be back home in good ol' Colorado.
