Weren't Apple's launches always overhyped? I suppose the Fanbois love this stuff, but normal people don't.
Not hype... the time change is kicking my ass. I didn't roll out until after 1300 hrs today, which is late even for me. I'm about halfway in to my second cup and haven't worked my way through the overnight mail yet. But the good news is the WX is fine (75 degrees! Yowza!) and it stays light out until well after 1800 hrs. That means we'll not miss any of the usual, customary, and reasonable verandah time.
In other news... Flo and I are back together. Long-time Gentle Readers might remember this from last August:
... with Flo. We had a short and VERY pleasing conversation, at least as far as I'm concerned. Which went something like this:Flo: How can I help you today, Mr. Pennington?And that was pretty much that, except for minor details. USAA is charging me MUCH less than half the amount Progressive was bending me over for. I smiled broadly throughout the entire conversation.
Me: I need to cancel my policy, please.
Flo: Oh, I'm sorry to hear that... may I ask why you're cancelling?
Me: Because you wouldn't give me your preferential rate due to bogus "bad credit" information. I'm with USAA now.

Well... I called up USAA a short while ago to get insurance on El Casa Móvil De Pennington, seein' as how my current policy runs out tomorrow and I KNOW USAA can do better for me when it comes to rates. So imagine my surprise when the helpful USAA person transferred me to Progressive, which does RV insurance for USAA. But I was pleased at the quoted rate, which was less than half of my current RV policy.
So: Me and Flo. True Love. Renewed.
