Ah, rat's ass.

I opened up a new checking account down here. Downside is that I opened it on wednesday (the day before Thanksgiving), and they put a five-day hold on checks for the first month. Which puts a crimp in things:

I am out of a couple of meds.

I have rent, a house payment, and bills to pay now.

I need to go grocery shopping.

It's only inconvenient, but it's annoying.

DVD player died sometime over the weekend. I can probably fix it (power supply), but I happened to have a backup. And it strikes me as how odd that I happened to have a backup DVD player that I bought because it was so damn cheap (less than $50 for progressive-scan component with digital AC-3 output). Which means that my DVD-watching spree wasn't interrupted for more than about ten minutes.
Then again, I'm down to the dregs of my DVD collection now. I started to watch "Sleepaway Camp" last night, and after about 20 minutes decided it was going to be a real chore. I'll probably pull it and wait for a time when I'm more desperate. I still have a couple of Vincent Price movies to wallow in (The Abominable Dr. Phibes) and some commentary tracks that I really should listen to.
