AJ's car broke down on the freeway yesterday. After searching the internet and calling around a few places we came to the conclusion that it was a dead fuel pump or a clogged air filter. He got it towed by Bucky's this morning which sucks because they're going to rape him in towing, parts and labor.
Then this morning......
My alternater was acting up.....not exactly the best way to start the morning. When I first heard something was wrong I thought the alternater itself was going bad AGAIN, then I saw all the gauge lights turn on and I was convinced I had to fork over $200 AGAIN...only two months removed from the last alternater purchase. Luckily it was just a stupid belt. When it snapped off the pullys it bounced off the underside of my hood and left a little dent...it's tiny but noticable. Yet another eye sore on my car. Anyway the belt was a pain in the butt to put in. I climbed on my car and squatted down so I could work under the hood, with my butt crack showing at work for all the world to see. I had to take out the other three belts to get to the alternater pully and scraped up my hands and wrists pretty good in the process. The belts took almost an hour to take off, and literally two minutes to put all three back on. Learning experience...
Adam got evicted. I guess getting high was more important than paying bills. I don't wanna hear any crap about "i couldn't afford rent and car payments and bills" cuz I had to make sacrifices when I lived on my own (and will again soon, hopefully). It's all about priorities. Now his credit is in the dumpster and it's going to be even harder for him to get a decent place. I hate that he's gone down this road. The way things are going he'll be living in underdeveloped affordable housing for the rest of his life.
So Pug and I might have found a place. Her "step cousin" and her wife are renting out a condo in Tukwila.....2 bedroom/1 bath, 3rd floor, kitties!! We're looking at it friday...I know I'll like it right away, I'm not too picky. Snot Face will make the final call, and hopefully she'll accept it. This is a great opportunity for us to get a place without having to go through the credit check trouble. The Hunt Club debt came back to haunt me and i'm in the middle of paying it off now, but this condo is like a Get Out of Jail Free card for us until I can pay it off, all the while building my credit. And we'll probably be paying less than market value with a very flexable lease! We'd be stupid not to snag this place.
What else....tomorrow is my last day of work then I'll finally be back to my regular schedule of three days off four on. It's going to be a long lovely weekend :) Thursday I'm going Bat hunting at Green Lake, friday we're checking out the condo (and hopefully going bowling), saturday I dunno what I'm doing, and sunday is open as well. I wanna get down to the gym all three days because I NEED TO GET BACK IN SHAPE. I feel myself getting fatter and it's becoming visibly clear that I'm out of shape.
The Celtics destroyed the Lakers by 39 points in Game 6 to become NBA champions! Ray Allen went 8 for 9 beyond the arc scoring almost 30 points, shattering an NBA finals record for most 3 pointers in a game and in a series.
My birthday is almost a week away! Gimmie presents!!
