Yay! It's My Birthday! Yay!

Today marks the beginning of my last year as a twenty-something. So, what did I do today?

Rode my motorcycle to work;

Got lunch paid for by one of the senior engineers (the only one who'd been listening to me, apparently, as he was the only one who wished me a happy birthday before lunch) ((I kid, I kid));

Found out my mom was out of surgery and doing fine;

Was hounded into buying health and life insurance and given a firm reminder to start a savings account;

Priced insurance for my firearms and accessories (NRA members only, unfortunately).

Priced magazines for my Para;

And lastly, I'm in the process of watching episodes of the first season of Jericho.

I still need to:

Open said savings account;

Call AT&T Support to complain about my cell phone's mini-display screen self-destructing on me.

Busy, busy.

Woah, you didn't tell me your mom was having surgery. Glad she's doing ok.

You may have to check around with insurance companies for rental insurance that includes firearms.

Of course, I think your best insurance would be a fire rated safe (not an RSC)....but how much are your guns worth compared to the price of one of those?

Oh, and if you get a C&R license you'll be able to get the Feds to help look for the guns if you have them stolen.

I'm not really sure that's an advantage, though. :D

The price of an actual safe seems pretty reasonable after adding up the total value of my collection to check the premium.

Oh, and yeah, Mom went in for outpatient surgery to have some polyps removed from her stomach. Didn't seem to be too terribly risky and wasn't exactly urgent. But it needed to be done and surgery always has some risk inherent to it. I'm glad she made it out okay, too.

Oh, and a C&R would bankrupt me posthaste. I don't need such temptations.
