So that was a good chunk of my day. Went into Flushing with Oldest Brother to the T-Mobil store, found I had to contact the insurance company, and so on and so on. And then the phone started working again.
So for the rest of the day we puttered on the computer, then went out and ate at an Italian place I know.
And then we watched the celebrations on TV, first the Washington DC one, then New York.
And that's pretty much the day.
