I'm out of checks. As you can see by the date, rent is due. It's a Sunday and I can't go to the bank for help. I have four days after today to get it in by. What do I do?

Yes, I feel really stupid for only noticing this NOW. I only have to write checks to 3 different things that don't do auto bank pay, so I didn't realize that I ran out after several years.
1. I have five days (today being day #1 and obviously wasted) to get a rent check in.
2. Being that it is a Sunday, I cannot talk to the bank. I tried calling the "help" number, but since my question wasn't a standardized one I got nowhere. All I can glean from the Internet is that my bank doesn't do counter checks.
3. Is there any other way to get this problem solved other than spending over $100 to get checks made and mailed to me ASAP and hope to god they show by Thursday? Not only do I not want to financially do that, if I do it I'll have to skip work to sit at home and wait for evil UPS and a forced signature because apparently my work is not a "valid" address to ship to.
What do banks do these days when you have this kind of situation? Am I going to have to ask them for far more cash than an ATM would dole out, or what?
(Bank rhymes with "mace" if that helps the question any.)
