Anyway, got there in time for the end of Prayers of the People and the universal confession, skipped my place in line for communion in order to get done in time for healing team (we do prayer and laying-on-hands just after communion and while communion is ongoing, in a private and quiet place off to the side.) We were there just a bit longer than usual, and the last hymn was one that I really love the tune for, but with different lyrics. Chatted a bit with people afterwards, and then headed out when the sciatica got to be too much.
On the way to the comic place I stopped at Batteries + and learned that they cannot get the special battery that the pre-2002 Prius used for their accessories. (They have a big bank of batteries that run the electric motor and a second, tiny, stupid battery that runs the radio, headlights, AC fans, and all that other stuff, and oh yeah, powers the gas motor.) Since the original battery was about half the size it should have been there was a recall, but the original owners of my car did not replace the battery, and as a result Toyota wants me to pay $360 for the work of removing the old BATTERY BRACKET, putting in a new bracket and battery, and so forth. No thanks. They recalled it, the recall should not have expired. They should not have sold it with the old battery and bracket in place. So, continuing to just carry my charger with me. Just, keeping it charged every weekend instead of letting it go flat by driving with it hooked up.
Picked up my comics, highly annoyed to find that three comics I DO subscribe to were not there, while there were about a skillion of some tie-in that I did not ask for, filling up the box.
PLEASE TFAW. Put the stuff I order in FIRST, then worry about the fecking tie-ins.
Anyway, about to head out to meet up with a friend from the group at Intel where I worked in 2005, who I haven't seen in person since then. He's got a new dog to join his other two, and likes to take them to various park-like settings for their walkarounds.
When I get home, I have laundry and dishes, but I can do those while playing City, or while writing some character bios. I'm way overdue for the writings.
