When I flew over to England, I carried with me a substantial amount of US$ in travelers’ cheques. I figured it would probably be about the most liquid, spendable thing I could have short of cash, but with the whole great non-stealable thing. As it turns out, they’re just about the most illiquid form of funds imaginable. I deposited them in my bank account as soon as it was opened, on the 20th of October, and they still have not cleared. I was truly scared that I would have to figure out how to live off of my few remaining pounds until I realized that I can instantly withdraw as much cash as I need from my US ATM card. Aahhh.

Not much happening here, apart from work and a scheduling quirk resulting in two consecutive days of rowing.
