The big ol’ bill

It turns out the repair estimate was $100 higher than the actual cost. It’s still a lot, but at least I’m $100 less in debt. Car runs fine now…

Today = Suckage

Okay, I could write up a long rant about all the stuff that went wrong today, but instead I’ll just list it all. Seems like more fun at the moment… Stuff that went wrong today: I missed Christine’s call to my cell on my drive in because I had the radio turned up too loud […]

Esca-later

Lizz and I decided to put our pair of Escaflowne costumes on hold until 2004. (Wow…2004 seems so far away!) We’ve already got other plans for 2003 and there’s no way we’d be able to get them done for 2003 cons and still have them look good…since neither of us really know how to sew […]

Fake it.

Sometimes I consider putting up fake blog entries just to see who freaks out. Stuff like, “I accidentally deleted all the resumes from Monster. I gathered up my belongings and walked out quietly without saying anything.” or “On my way home from work, I accidentally ran over someone trying to cross the street. I got […]

Shaven

I hate it when I miss a spot shaving and end up with a couple hairs sticking out of my neck. It’s just a couple hairs so it’s not like anyone would really notice. …but I do when I place my fist under my chin in thought. You girls just wouldn’t understand. 😛
