I took the Jackmobile to Peach Auto yesterday. Harry seemed less concerned about the error code than I was, but also informed me that they are slammed so I might not get resolution until Monday. I have to return the rental car on Sunday and I am not sure that I want to foot the bill for another week of rental costs; I am attending CocoaConf near the airport on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday so I’ll need transportation to get to and from there next week.
By then I could be the owner of a new car, something that excites and frightens me (financially) at the same time. After all, I just lowered my auto insurance to a “reasonable” rate by removing collision from the Jackmobile’s coverage. Getting a new car will, in addition to a car payment, also increase my auto insurance again. If I do snap-purchase a car before Sunday I will have to figure out what the destiny of the Jackmobile will be, as I won’t have it available for trade-in. Meh.
Last night was as mundane as mundane gets. I drove the Fiat 500L to the laundromat, proceeded to do laundry, and then drove home. I’ve gotten really lazy with my time spent at home, last night (read “before I fell asleep early and from the hours of 2:00am to 4:30am when I was awake again”) I watched the final two episodes of the last season of The Taste. I admit that The Taste is far from “good” television, but I watch it regardless.
In addition to getting my laundry done I was slightly proud of myself for not eating out last night, instead waiting until I returned home where I ate some of the leftovers that were in my refrigerator. You know, with the potential return of a car payment I need to start watching my pennies more closely again.
I’m hoping that my day at work today goes smoothly; it will be yet another busy one, running about to try and put out a couple of fires. With any luck I’ll be able to sneak out a little early and beat some traffic over to Tucker where I’ll meet up with the Raleigh Royalty at Sanitary Not’s house.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving all! And, if you are bored on Friday check this space because there may be a new blog post awaiting your arrival.
