Brilliant!

(no subject)

I'm going home.

Not sure when exactly, but before Thanksgiving. We have a lot to do before then, sorting through our stuff and selling some, packing some, mailing some...

I am so very excited.

Keely is giving her two week's notice at work on Monday, and I will give mine either this Friday or next Friday, haven't quite decided yet.
Brilliant!

In reference to my post from yesterday evening, Road Rage, we talked to the cops.

Well, okay. They were supposed to call us last night. The incident happened around 7:30. By 9 or so, they still hadn't called, so I called Mel and we talked for a while. By 9:30, I was insanely tired and went to bed, and was asleep by 10.

We still hadn't heard anything today, so we figured the matter had been resolved. A few minutes ago, Keels and I went to McDonald's for dinner, because we're evil Americans. When we got back, I checked our phone for messages. To do this, I have to pick up the receiver and turn it on, and if the dial tone beeps a lot, it means we have one.

So anyway. We had a beepy signal. I handed the phone to Keels, thinking it was her folks.

Keels: God, we go out for five minutes and we have a message. What the hell.

Me: I know. No one ever calls us.

So Keels listens to the message, the furrow between her brow getting deeper. She starts making loopy motions with her hand. "Pen, I need a pen."

The message ends just as she finds one. She pushes the buttons to listen to it again. "It's the cops...they called last night at like 10:30."

I said, "Oh, I guess I was zonked out by then, I didn't even hear the phone."

She nodded, then started listening again...then suddenly looked at me, her eyes wide and her mouth making a little "O."

Me: What? ...Did you erase the cop??

Keels: Not on purpose!

So she had to call the police station and ask who called last night, and was told it was Officer Something-ending-in-'ov,' and he would call her back shortly.

When the phone rang again, she picked it up. Here is the converstation she related to me, with Officer Monotone-ov.

Officer Monotone-ov: This is Officer Monotone-ov with the Burlington Police Department. Is this Kelly?

Keels: Yes, this is Keely.

Officer Monotone-ov: *is silent*

Keels: ...sooo...do you want me to just tell you what happened?

Officer Monotone-ov: Yes.

Keels: *tells him the whole story*

Officer Monotone-ov: Thank you. That helps. *hangs up*

Keels: ...Goodbye to you, too.

He didn't even want to talk to me, and I was the driver. But oh well. I probably would have thrown up my Big Mac or something.
