When I don't have a substitute job pre-arranged in the morning, I have to get up at 5:00 to check what's available. When my alarm went off this morning, I turned it off and promptly returned to sleep until 7:45. Instant accidental vacation!
In other news, our old printer died and forced us to buy a new one. We got an HP PSC 1315, an all-in-one printer-scanner-copier that only costs $100. It's working fine and so far the copy function has already proven useful. As with having a DVR, you quickly wonder how you ever got by without one.
