    I found a cute bag for my new ukulele for a great price, and ordered it off amazon before noticing that it takes "1-4 months" to ship. WTF?

    ^It's coming along, thanks. :) My roommate said I already sound better, but I'm in a kind of daunting place where I can pick up pretty much any stringed instrument and have the basics down immediately, but then I remember there's a shitload of technique to learn anad that actually takes work. I got all the basic chords memorized, and can even do some bar chords (something my small hands make very difficult on guitar). Fingering is easy for me too, because of my cello and violin training. But I have basically no strumming or plucking technique, as one pretty much never strums a cello...

    I would love to have dishwasher that wasn't so loud that it drove everyone out of the room.

    Yeah, being quiet is a nice plus, but the things we really liked were the detachable, movable silverware baskets, an extra wash arm, stainless steel interior, and the 10 (!) year warranty on the motor and most of the moving parts. Plus there were store and manufacturer rebates, so our final cost for everything (including tax, delivery, installation, and haulaway of our old washer) was a hair over $620. Not bad for what is pretty much a top-of-the-line model.
