[xkcd] Rapture


The long awaited update....

Bow now you pitiful fools! -evil gannondorf like laughter-

Okay. So things have been okay. I wish they were a lot better but they're okay. Let's see...

There's been the ending of school (which was a very large plus in my book). Nothing big to say about that other than thank god its finally over. YAY! I spent about 3 weeks at home doing diddly squat. Nothing at all. Slept a lot. Um... Watched Matt get his ass kicked at wrestling a few times. (There's another one of those "plus" things again.) Went on a field trip with the THS band since I'm old enough to chaperogne now. YAY! We went to Wild River Country and I got to swim. No tan though because I severely dislike being burnt. I did forget to put sunblock on the part in my hair and got burnt there, but at least it wasn't my shoulders or anything that I can't handle. ^_^ This past weekend I got yet another car. You would think that my dad would get the picture and realize that the equation Lori + motor vehicle = DiSaStEr!, but he doesn't quite realize this yet. I'm just not car savvy. I don't understand them and, since they break down on me all the time, I don't want to understand them! Its nice though... I like this one. Its a blue '96 Lumina. Very pretty. I think I have nail polish that matches it actually. The only catch is that I actually don't have it yet. (#1) The paperwork (insurance, tags, etc.) hasn't been transferred yet... (#2) My dad thinks he's gonna give me that white '94 lumina he bought before.


I worked my ass off trying to clean up MY blue lumina with the cd player (but no cruise control). I cleaned up most, but not entirely all, of the mud that was caked onto the floor of that car even though, if he would have waited a day or two, it would have already been cleaned up. My mother and I was talking about it and we've come to realize that my father cannot bargain with anyone. Its like some sort of obsticle course for him. He runs in, runs out, and hopes he got the best deal. My mother would have had Bradford's eating out of the palm of her hand. She would have had the carpet cleaned, the windshield replaced, the whole inside reapolstered... all for the same price that my dad payed for a car that wasn't even clean. Of course... I'm exaggerating, but ya'll get my drift. My dad can't bargain.

I also got a job. YAY, MONEY! Okay, so I'm doing the exact same thing that I did fall and spring semesters, but at least its some cash flow. I enjoy having a job. Gets me out of the house and gets me up here to school so that I can use the internet access. YAY!


Of course you are...

Oh yeah. I saw Stephen Casteel the same day I got my car (Friday). Talked to him for a good 20 minutes or so. Found out he's livin' in Tuckerman... I was like OMG... you moved out of your house? Now I feel like such a loser because I'm 21 and still living with my parents. -sigh-
