So to top off our awesome deal of having to pay for two apartments during the month of January, we now have to repair the car. It’s looking like it will cost around 400$ at least, if not more. I’m not looking forward to it, but poor huffy was screaming like a banshee. I guess a cog in the alternator is cracked or something to that effect, and four different belts need replacing. The belts aren’t that big of a deal, but the alternator part is $125 before we even start to think about labour.

One more trip out to my mom’s in Pitt Meadows, however, and we probably would have broken down on the road. So it’s good that we’re fixing it before it explodes, but basically we’re putting out an extra 1400$ that we don’t have this month. It’s so much fun.

I vaguely remember a time when I could buy christmas presents. A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away.

          Oh, there’s always a choice.

          If I committed some crime, I could let the rest of the country take care of me while I went to school in prison. 😀

            well, if you go that route, try to find a crime that allows conjugal visits
