I don't really hold Cory-the-mechanic responsible for this. I'd made the various hotel plans (which involve four different hotels and five different runs of stays over a two-week period) before realizing that now is the best and maybe only time I could get him to work on the only-partially-working air conditioning, and while he was at it, to fix a problem with the turn indicator and the broken emergency flasher switch. The AC needed more work than originally expected (the rear AC wasn't putting out any cold air), so it's taking longer than planned. Had I known it would take that long, I probably would have made different hotel plans.
Oh, well, they already think I'm odd at work, so seeing me haul my luggage in tomorrow morning won't be too much more weirdness. I'll find room for it somewhere.
