Welp, not entirely unexpectedly by this point, the other driver['s employer] did not in fact have insurance at the time of the accident.
At least our deductible was only $200. I had thought it was $500 but apparently since we've been with them for quite a number of years with no accidents (hail claims do not, apparently, count) they lowered the deductible.
TBH gonna see if we can get it raised again because Jersey auto insurance is 💸. Won't miss *those* rates if we move back to Kansas.

this hospital had two patients with the same name who both needed a kidney transplant?!
Early read-to-littles day because of the USAn holiday. It was picture day, so indoor recess. Teacher put on some dance music and four-year-olds dancing is the cutest thing ever and today was the day I most regretted the ban on posting pictures/video on social media.

Had to doublecheck that I was on birdsite because this video is extremely Mastodon. https://twitter.com/paxthedog/status/1198030907367710720
Like 90% of the discussion my husband has with his Warframe group is about arranging rooms and decorative items in their base[s] and accessorizing their characters and trading for color-matching armor and folks, grown-ass dudes are playing with dolls and decorating dollhouses in case you wondered just how much gender norms are artificial constructs.
Literally laughed out loud.
Two years ago: didn't see the signs announcing either leaf pickup week, just left the leaves in our yard, leaf truck came by first thing Monday, neighbors were not impressed.
Last year: bought an electric leafblower, scraped up about a third of the leaves, gave up called a service at the last minute, leaf truck came by first thing Monday.
This year: looked up the dates in advance, called the service to schedule both pickups, service came out a week ago Monday... leaf truck still hasn't shown.
