So my refund was finally credited to my school account this morning. (The "refund" Is actually what's left over from paying the HUGE chunk of tuition to Columbia - not an actual refund, as in "This piece of crap equipment doesn't work. Give me my money back!") Hopefully the school will take pity and release the money to my checking account immediately, although my hanging up on a customer service representative in frustration yesterday will probably count against me.
All this makes me convinced this money was somehow tied to Daschle's failure to pay his taxes. Damn you, Daschle! Okay, not really. But still.
I'm proud to have broken the spell of 140 Characters and Under. But I've decided I still like twitter better than Facebook since it doesn't force me to talk about myself in the third person. And I like blogger better than either twitter or Facebook.
