OH MY GOD -- what a week. For it did suck a second time over. I mean, it was that bad. Started out the week putting in a double shift at the office, then followed that up with contracting a particularly vicious malady that had me flat on my frickin' back during the week. Then, at the end, the frickin' market had its worst day in two years, which was even more aggravating. As a young person and "dollar cost averager," I know I'm supposed to actually like that, but even still it's frustrating.
Spot of good news: the car's all set, and it looks pretty promising the thing will make it -- God, at least 10,000 more miles, maybe 20,000. One of the nice things about living out here in the provinces is that people take an opposite view towards their cars as they do in the cities. I can assure readers that, even though my Ford Taurus has 113,000 miles and thus well-past its sell-by date, people routinely encourage me to keep the damn thing. After all, why get a new one if the car still runs, and with the engine it ought last 'til 150,000 miles, etc.
Also: I'm still not smoking, amazingly enough.
As for the blog -- yeah, I've been neglecting it and I'm not pleased about it, because I do enjoy writing here. It's just that some weeks, there's precious little time for one's hobbies.Posted by Benjamin Kepple at April 16, 2005 10:32 AM | TrackBack
