...that the next two Hurricanes are going to be Lisa (already a Tropical storm and working her way up quickly) and Matthew (currently a Tropical Depression and building)?

Now you know! And knowing is half the reason you should probably move if you live on the coast.

What is this, now, 5 hurricanes already hit or on their way? Wow.

Oh, good. Yes, all I wanted was to have my department made cripplingly shorthanded for an indeterminate period.

So, it was not a fun day at work, but I do still have my job and I can't say more for now.

In an effort to de-stress, I drove up to Mansfield to meet John for dinner, give him part of the cash we agreed on for his Battletech collection, and swap some stories. A very nice time and I was pleasantly surprised by some of it, horrified by some of the tales of the state of the IT department, and when he mentioned they would be hiring soon, I have to admit I considered it for about 3 seconds before dismissing it. I have a somewhat saner and less frustrating career path down here.

Plus, it's a world without dogs. /Random Ellis reference.

The boxes were transferred, and after driving home I was able to finally open them and get a good look at what we'd paid for.

To be blunt?

Praise to the Machine God.

We're paying a total of $325 for the collection, of which Steve and I have both put in about $100 each, and more is coming from a few other sources to finish it off.

The lead alone in this collection is worth $1000. At least.
