Hello, all. I’m just doing some website maintanence. This will hopefully result in a better, (i.e. “less crappy”) viewing experience for you. I’m still working on the IE for Windows browser problems; hopefully this will take care of it. And if it doesn’t then, I don’t know what the hell to do.
In the past week or so there’s been a lot going on. I was involved in a medium-sized car accident the day after my last entry. I was on my way to work (in my sister’s car) when some lady in front of me started fishtailing on a narrow entrance ramp. She hit the cement and there was so much ice that all my braking made nary a difference, so I plowed into her. Minor damage to her car, but my sister’s car is totalled (at least it will be when the insurance company gives the okay). She’s buying a new $8,000 car. That old car kinda sucked anyway, but I didn’t want to be the one to ruin it. Dammit, my car needed smashing, not hers! Instead, I had to pay $225 a few days later to keep mine running. Granted, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but when you consider that it’s probably 50% of the car’s blue book value it starts to seem pretty crappy. At this rate the car’s main source of value will be the gas in its tank. The heater doesn’t work, but at least the CD player does. I’ve got priorities, man. Oh, and I just paid over $300 for 6 months of insurance, which, if you’re not from MN, is required by law, much to my chagrin. I really hate insurance to begin with, but forcing people to buy something really pisses me off. “Oh,” they say, “you don’t have to drive.” Oh sure, I’ll just partake in our wonderful public transportation system then. If you need me, I’ll be waiting in a basement for the next 10 to 20 years for the first subway train to show up.
