Yesterday around 4:40 PM I decided to take the Netflix DVD we watched on Saturday night down to the post office. While talking to my wife, I grabbed the DVD and stuffed it into the envelope. It's only a five-minute walk to the post office, so I made it with ease.

This morning I got an e-mail message confirming that Netflix received my movie... except it was the movie we didn't watch, not the one we saw on Saturday. As Homer Simpson would say, "Doh!" Oh well, my wife didn't seem particularly enthusiastic about The World's Fastest Indian anyway, although I wanted to see it. I guess I'll have to put it in the queue again. And of course, I'll have to mail back the other DVD today. Surely I'm not the only person who's done this, am I?

Meanwhile, I've been preparing materials to apply for a writing assignment I've wanted since fifth grade. I hope to be making an announcement in a week or two; otherwise, I'll just post the writing sample I submitted (I'd hate to see it disappear into the 400 GB abyss of my hard drive).
