An update while the hamburger is cooking.

We just got back from grocery shopping, but with double coupons up to $1, we saved 33% tonight. Tigger wants Chili Mac for dinner; since it's his birthday, he gets to choose.

Oh, I forgot to mention before, that I changed Flar's cell phone plan. He was going over on minutes a couple of months in a row, so I called up to get him more minutes. (Both the phones are in my name, so that I can do this kind of calling.) In the course of the conversation with the Cingular customer service representative, I found out that (a) the current nationwide plans don't allow for unlimited nights and weekends, and (b) they would want to extend his contract by 11 months if I changed his calling plan. I said I'd have to check with him, since he's pretty keen on not having a contract. The woman then asked me to wait while she talked to her supervisor, and got permission to (a) waive the 11 month contract extension and (b) offer me one of the old nationwide plans. Because I'm "such a long-time customer". So now Flar gets 850 minutes a month, still has unlimited nights and weekends, and still doesn't have a contract. And I'm(once again) impressed with Cingular's customer service.
