First it was my tooth. Then my Tach's window. Then a tiny bit of plastic fell off my phone, and it turns out it had the vital job of holding the damn flip screen on. The next day I got in my car to drive to work, and when it wouldn't move an inch I discovered that I had a totally flat tire (slashed? I think someone has it out for me; that's easier to believe than this string of bad luck. Someone suggested that whoever broke in to my truck came back, and when they saw I had emptied it out, they got pissed and attacked a tire. Yes, I am obsessively paranoid).
Whatever. As long as my little truckie is still there in the morning. Only 2 more days in the hood.
So I am now $200 dollars more in the whole, and that's before replacing my phone. I may just see if I can hold it on for the year and a half left on my contract.
Okay, new plan. Everyone that reads this should go out and enter me in every sweepstakes and contest they can find. Preferably ones with large cash jackpots. Sigh. Money is such a bother. I should have enough to get me through the holidays and my trip home, if I live frugally. Then I can get another job (sigh) when I get back. Temp jobs, if I can find them. Sigh again.
There is an older man here, just for the night. He is sitting on the couch, "La Bamba" playing in the background, completely engrossed in a Bust magazine. That rocks.
I am almost done with my skinny scarf. It's kinda nice to just knit, 300 stitches long, without thinking or looking at any patterns. I'll go back to my tank soon, I promise.
Pictures are in the mail!
