And also with you. Yeah, I know, but I can’t help it.

In other news I just got back from Walgreens with a booster dose of the Moderna bivalent vaccine in my arm, so let’s see if I develop some cool superpowers THIS time. I mean, really, is it too much to ask for teleportation or the ability to fly?

I also think that I’m going to hire an appraiser to come appraise our house so that we can submit a protest for our property tax rate hike. At first I thought, “Eh, just let it ride,” until I found out that the tax is set by computers measuring comparative prices for houses in our neighborhood. A human can do a walkthrough and say, “Oh, hell no, this place isn’t worth that much.” And it’s worth the upfront fee to get that sorted. Also, apparently the state tax office legally has to accept the appraisal from a state-certified appraiser as the basis for our property tax. It’s worth the fee, as far as I’m concerned.
