Look what I found!

This was waiting for me when I got to work today. Yay toys! I'm going shooting tomorrow, so the timing is perfect.
In other news, the Maytag dude was out this morning. "What's it doing?"
"Well, there's one thing it's doing, and one it isn't. Every few minutes it makes a really obnoxious buzzing sound for about ten seconds. What it isn't doing is making things cold."
"Your compressor is seized." Just as he finished talking, we heard buzz-click. "Yep, that's exactly what it is." He walked over and unplugged the cord.
The bad news is that it's a $900 repair. The good news is that I'm not paying a dime of it, since it's under warranty. The very bad news is that the repair date is 3/26... yep, almost two weeks away. I may pick up a used dorm fridge until it's fixed, but in the meantime I have a chest freezer and a good old-fashioned icebox. I just have to remember to replace the ice when it melts.
