The PITA refinance snafu has unknown consequences at this time, ranging from a delay to an outright refusal. A delay would be simply annoying; a refusal would be dire, and there is no Plan B.

Well, that's not entirely true. There is a Plan B, but it involves some things that are a tad drastic, and I'd rather not go there if I don't have to. It's more of a Plan C.

On a good note, my hotel room is confirmed for CONvergence. And after work on Friday, I have ten consecutive days off work. Downside is that those days won't be exactly restful, as they are filled with stuff that I've been putting off for too long and projects that need to get done (not the least of which is the facade project which is packing some long-ass days into the last week before the convention). I will be taking a minimum of one of those days entirely to myself guilt-free, thank you.

I am stressed. I can feel my entire body clenching like a fist. I know that can't be good. Then again, I'll be able to get to the hotel early on Friday and spend a good chunk of the day in the hot tub before the convention really kicks off.

At least SNAFU isn't your stage name.... check this out, http://www.abcnewspapers.com/2002/anoka/december/27clowns.html. Does he even understand what SNAFU means?

Plan D involves a little help from "V".

By the way, if you didn't know before... anon-E-moose was me.

I saw that and it got me thinking... did I confirm *our* hotel room? I looked up at the printed form with the confirmation number that had been hanging on my bulletin board... and I wasn't sure. Today is the deadline to receive credit card auth. Made it in by the skin of our teeth.

They do something weird now - probably because of the prelevance of credit card fraud. They emailed me a Credit Card Authorization Form. Then I had to fax them the entire form, front and back photocopies of my credit card, and a photocopy of my driver's license. Their front desk lady said they could no longer take credit card payment over the phone. Inconvenient, yes - but in this day and age - perfectly understandable.

Then I even called and verified they received every page. *whew*

See you at CON!
